Mascara is a girl’s best friend. It lengthens, thickens, darkens, intensifies, and defines your eyelashes. It will make your eyes pop and transform your face.
Unfortunately, I was not able to wear mascara for a long time. And I’m unable to do eyelash extensions due to the sensitivity of my eyes. After I put on mascara/eyelash extensions, I often experience redness in my eyes, sting sensation, and teary eyes. It is uncomfortable, and it is not very pleasant when you are trying to look beautiful, and the result is the opposite.
So I did a little research:
By no means am I a scientist. So I did what anyone would do, I searched what is in typical mascara. According to WebMD, “mascara’s ingredients typically include a carbon black or iron oxide pigment to darken lashes; a polymer to form a film that coats lashes; a preservative; and thickening waxes or oils such as lanolin, mineral oil, paraffin, petrolatum, castor oil, carnauba wax, and candelilla wax”. Sounds pretty good, right? But, have you ever read what is in your mascara? When you pick up your mascara from Sephora or drug store, and you read the ingredient list, you will say WHOA. Because there will be a whole ton of ingredients, you won’t be able to pronounce most of it, and you may even see words like synthetic.
I mean, no wonder my eyes were not happy. Mascara is full of chemicals ingredients! So this is when I start seeking natural beauty products that contain ingredients my body can recognize. Something I can feel good about putting on my body.

These mascaras are available for purchase on Amazon or directly with 100% Pure. The price is the same. If you have Prime, it will ship faster if you purchase it through Amazon. If you purchase it directly with the brand, you will get samples with your shipment. If you are in no rush, I recommend that you purchase it directly with the brand.
100% Pure mascara is all-natural and made with clean ingredients. Unlike other brands, these mascaras are infused with nourishing ingredients. Since these mascaras are made from fruit pigments, you should check to see if you would have any allergic reaction before using them. Especially if you have any food sensitivity. Test it on your skin first before applying because no one wants uncomfortable eyes. What I love about this brand is that they do have physical store locations. If you do live close to one, go check it out.
Overall, these are awesome clean beauty mascaras to check out. I love anything natural and organic that still performs well, and these mascaras do exactly that. While the price on these mascaras is on the expensive side, I still think it is worth every penny because it contains nourishing ingredients.
