I have to be honest, I suck at wearing makeup. As I have aged and become more and more inept at keeping up with the day-to-day – I have worn makeup less and less.. Because I value sleeping more than looking nice most mornings. However! If I DO wear makeup, I’ll usually put on eyeliner and possibly mascara to try to make my tired eyes look slightly more awake. The problem is, of course, that many natural mascaras smudge after a few hours. I’ve heard lots of complaints from people who can’t make the shift to natural, toxin-free makeup because they can’t find a mascara that actually stays on and doesn’t smudge.
Well I have news for you!
I have now discovered THE BEST NATURAL SMUDGE PROOF MASCARA!! For real!
I needed to test drive this mascara in different circumstances to make sure it was the real deal. I put it on the morning and went through a whole work day with no smudging. My eyes looked exactly the same at 6pm as they did at 9am. Then I wore it while spending time outside on a humid day. Still no smudging. I wore it through a sweaty yoga class and gardening outside. My eyes teared up and a shed a few tears while watching a show on Netflix (I’m easily emotional, what can I say?). No smudging! It looks exactly the same at the end of the day as when Ifirst put it on in the morning!!
I also love that I don’t feel it at all. I have really sensitive skin and sensitive eyes, allergies galore, etc, etc. So if I’m tired, mascara can really bug my eyes. But this stuff goes on smoothly and then I forget it’s there. Some people find that it is best used in conjunction with something like Xlash eyelash serum to really make the eyes pop and leave your lashes conditioned.
