Today I have a little review for you ladies. About two weeks ago I was having a horrible week and dealing with many things so my lovely boyfriend took me to a natural food market here in Toronto called The Big Carrot. They also have a section where they sell natural beauty and skin care items which is what The Boy treated me to :) I was so surprised and happy to see they had all the brands I've always wanted to try but hesitated due to shipping charges online. A few brands that I saw where Pangea Organics, 100% Pure, Dr. Hauschka and so much more! I didn't have the time to look through everything though. Alright back to the review.
I've been looking for an organic mascara that is volumizing and won't transfer underneath my eyes after an hour of wear. I do understand that no natural mascara will last as long as non-natural ones since they do not use the plastics and waxes that will ensure lasting power. I've been using Physicans Formula Organic Wear mascara for a year now and while it gives a gorgeous effect, it lasts for about 2 hours, not good.
While I was in Big Carrot I told a girl that worked there what I wanted and she directed me to Gabriel Color mascara. They had two options black and brown and I opted for the black one.
The formula for this mascara is thick and wet in the tube. Once you put it on, it dries in about 30 seconds and stays put for more than 8 hours. I LOVE it! My main concern with mascaras is always how volumizing they are and how long the last. This certainly is volumizing and also lengthening and it does not clump. I have naturally long lashes but this adds even more length. This is also the only mascara I am able to wear on my bottom lashes, as it doesn't smudge or make them stick out straight!
