Reviews For Black Mascara
Based on 24 Reviews
The first few applications were great. The mascara started clumping and not going on as smooth. I used some eye drops to loosen the mascara up a bit. It's back to a smooth application.

I suddenly became allergic to something that's in all the mascara I have tried. My eyes would itch after about 10 minutes of applying mascara, become red and swollen. My friend told me to try your black mascara and I haven't had any itching or red swollen lids. I'm very thankful for your product.

Great for sensitive/allergy eyes!
I got this mascara for a friend who developed severe eye allergies upon entering menopause. She had worn eye makeup for years with no problems. The eye doctor had her on different types of drops and she had tried all kinds of mascaras that would again cause her eyes to get red and itchy within minutes of putting it on. She was so excited to try this mascara and I'm now ordering more for her because for the FIRST TIME IN OVER A YEAR, she can wear mascara with NO eye irritation! What an amazing product!

I really like this!
It's thick, it smells nice and it stays on. I don't have the issue with the brush others seem to have. The actual applicator itself is short, but the brush is huge ... just for clarification.
Also, as others have said, if you don't take it off before bed you will end up with Raccoon eyes! This is getting me to be better about taking it off before bed.
Don't buy this
This mascara is not a good product. it makes my eyes tear and turn red, and it smudges for no reason at all. i wasn't sweating or doing anything in particular and every time i looked in the mirror, i had to wipe it off from under my eyes. i've used mascaras for years and wanted something that was more natural and this was a step in the wrong direction!
Great alternative mascara
I've used the mascara for a few weeks now and I've been pleased! It goes on very smooth. I don't like thick mascara, so I'm not sure how it would work for someone who wanted multiple coats, but it has been perfect for me! It smells lovely, too.
Pretty good mascara!
I love how it covers, has great ingredients and doesn't clump! I wish it wouldn't leave marks when it hits my eyelids where I have moisturizer. And I wish the handle was just a bit longer. I don't always feel I can cover my entire lash area without hitting the surrounding area.
Lengthen and Enhance
The best non-toxic mascara I ever tried! I highly recommend it!
I was worried about it coming off on my eyelids as so many do, but it stayed on my lashes. It doesn't clump either.
Need to occasionally blott on tissue to take care of extra mascara in the wand, however it did apply nicely with no smudging during the day.

I like the black and the look it gives; I ordered the brown (my preference) but it came as if it was "old" and "clumpy" - couldn't even use it.
love this mascara
I have been using this for about 3 years now and it is a good price for a natural mascara, performs pretty well and lasts all day.
I have tried other natural mascaras and you can't even tell you have it on. This definitely makes your lashes thicker. No, it doesn't come off with regular soap and water but I use an olive oil soap and it comes off with a few washings. But I love the thickness of my lashes so I don't mind. The short brush took awhile to get use to . I think I still prefer a longer brush but this is fine. I have not washed or wiped my brush. I actually put a dab of the mascara on my lashes in different places and then brush thru. It works great and last for 24 hours. Yes, I have worn it that long. I have bough 3 tubes now.
no miss mascara
love it a bit clumpy really need to clean wand on sides of tube before applyng a little hard to wash off w delicate face cleanser overall worth using CLEAN PRODUCTS ESPECIALLY ON OUR PRECIOUS VISION
I've been looking for an affordable natural mascara for years and I am super pleased with this one!
itchy eyes using this mascara, difficult to remove
Good product but very poor brush applicator. The brush tends to clump on my lashes and I have to comb it out with a different one. I haven't found it to smear as others have. Has a good wear, but does not come off with water alone. Need to use coconut oil to remove and then it still feels like it's still on. I'm going to keep on searching for the perfect natural but this is a good one to start with for those beginning to switch their personal care products.
Great alternative to traditional mascara.
Wore all day with no issues. 1 star off for the wand type (traditional wand that gets a little clumpy if you do not wipe it off each time) and 2 it does not come off with just soap or water, you have to use something (coconut oil in my case) to remove it all. All in all I would buy again.
This product is just what I wanted! It stayed put all day- after 8 hours of teaching plus an hour long, sweat-filled workout. It didn't smudge or smear, but came off easily when washed off.

Doesn't last all day
This is a decent natural mascara, but I do have smudges under my eyes by the end of the day. I just make sure I check my eyes before I go anywhere, and can wipe away smudges with a tissue. I keep buying it though, because I like the ingredients better than my old drug store mascara.
A little runny
I like this mascara. I have some issues with it running during wear so I started using a good lash primer before applying so that I know it's not going to make me look like a raccoon halfway through my day. I love the shorter wand for application!
- Noella Ganza
I love this mascara! I have no issues applying it and the shorter wand helps me get an even better application. I don't need to reapply during the day and I love it's non toxic so if my little girl gets to it (which I avoid) I don't have to worry about that at least.
LOVE THIS MASCARA
With the smaller brush, this mascara is "super easy" to apply since it allows you to get up closer to the lash base when applying. I have been using for a few months now with no bleed off on my skin.
Well, my quest for a good natural mascara will continue. This one did not perform well. The application wand length is very short so it was a bit awkward to apply. That being said, an hour and a half after applying it I had mascara smudges all over my eye lids. Mid-way through dinner with friends I looked like a raccoon! Ha! Will not re-buy and will not re-use this tube. :(
