I am obsessed with all things, mascara! I can’t leave home without it and as a mascara junkie I worshiped the classic green and pink Maybelline Great Lash among other popular makeup brands. But, one thing I wanted more was to ditch these toxic lash-blasters and search for mascara that is cruelty-free, safe “green” and organic.
Hynt Beauty Nocturne Mascara and Beauty Counter Lengthening Mascara are my top favorite picks known to be cruelty-free, non-toxic “green”mascara. Here is a snapshot and a quick review of my results of both brands.
Hynt Beauty NOCTURNE Mascara
I was immediately impressed with Hynt Beauty NOCTURNE Mascara ($24). It goes on easily making my lashes look longer and natural looking. It conditions and softens each strand, making my eyes look bright and beautiful. It is gentle enough to be used every day without the clump or flakiness. This organically-based product is infused with a blend of vitamins, antioxidants and natural plant extracts. Check out some of these healthy organic ingredients:
Organic Chamomile is anti-inflammatory helps balance oil and acne-prone skin.
Organic Rosemary Leaf protects skin cells from free radicals and the sun. A natural antiseptic with anti-inflammatory properties
Organic Sunflower Seed Oil contains beauty essential fatty acids collagen and elastin to protect skin.
Beauty Counter Lengthening Mascara
This brand received Allure’s 2016 Best of Beauty Awards for BEST mascara. I love mascaras that give me the “wow” factor for volume and length. Beauty Counter Lengthening Mascara ($29) is amazing! It delivers length, definition and volume plus giving me the confidence using a safer and cleaner product. Although there are a few synthetics used to make the product most ingredients are naturally derived from cocoa seed butter, sunflower seed oil, beeswax, vitamin E, rosemary leaf extract, and acai fruit oil which provides extra conditioning to your lashes.
There is one fact I want to emphasize about Beauty Counter. They are an ethical company that advocates the push for safer ingredients in beauty products. The company has a Never List of harmful ingredients which they will not use in their products. Although, the focus is on “greener” products they do use a few synthetic ingredients to improve product’s performance. The Lengthening Mascara is an amazingly effective product that produces results with without the toxic ingredients. The super-enriching formula nourishes all the way from root to tip while bringing color, definition and a giving you a natural eye-opener
