Remember when I said I was going to try out a bunch of natural mascaras and then review them for you in my search to find the best one? Way back in September? Turns out, the very next mascara I tried (which was actually the one I wanted to buy first but it was sold out that day) was a winner. And because I am a terrible blogger, I just kept using it and never posted a review.
You must have all been on the edge of your seats in suspense.
But a promise is a promise, and I’ve never been the type of person to stop buying new things just because I already found one that worked nicely (as my wallet can attest), so I’m going to revive my initial plan of posting a new mascara every month (or three).
This month’s selection is Perfekt Lash Perfection Gel. It can be found on almost every green beauty list, but unlike a lot of other highly recommended brands, it can be bought at Ulta – so you don’t have to special order it from some hippie dippy online boutique.
It is nice and black, but it doesn’t really lengthen or volumize too heavily. This is really great every day mascara, and I think you could probably layer it to build volume for a night out. I haven’t had any issues with smearing (not usually a problem for me anyway) or clumping (HUGE issue for me).
There is also a version that curls the lashes, which I possibly love even more (but did not photograph).
This mascara has not dried out, made my eyes sting or feel dry, and I can wear it all day without getting to 5pm and feeling like I have to take off all my eye makeup or go insane. I really love it.
