I couldn’t find this product in the Cosmetic Safety Database, so I searched the ingredients individually. I’ve linked to the only ingredient that has a hazard score higher than a three, which is grain alcohol. It’s also listed twice, and I can only assume this is because some of it’s organic and some is not…?
Some great things about this product:
1. It’s formulated without Parabens.
2. It’s vegan.
3. It contains organic ingredients.
Product Description (provided at lavera.com)- ”Lavera Volume Mascara with Advanced Shaping Brush adds lasting volume & length to lashes for beautiful, bright eyes! Nourishing extracts of Organic Jojoba & Wild Rose Oils deeply hydrate allowing flake-free volume throughout the whole day. This pure, paraben-free and heavy-metal-free formula rinses off with a mild cleanser and is ideal even for very sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Your personal assistant for tired looking eyes.”
Price- $17.98-$20.00 for 0.21 oz.
Performance- My favorite aspect of this mascara is that it doesn’t clump, even after several coats. Sometimes I go a little mascara crazy, so having a mascara that doesn’t clump is nice. It’s lightweight and subtle, and it successfully gives my lashes volume, definition, and color without making me look like I’m in a beauty pageant.
Scent- It smells a little less like dirt and a little more like brownies than Light, Camera, Lashes! Honestly, though, who ever has a mascara wand close enough to their nose for a long enough period of time for it to matter?
Rating- I have no complaints, so 10/10.
Would I purchase this item again?- I’m sure that I will, eventually. Since I can purchase it at Target, it’s one of my most convenient options.
