Reviews For Brown Mascara

Clumpy & Poor Application
The color of this mascara is a nice brown. However, this mascara is extremely clumpy and hard to apply. I tried warming it slightly to help it smoothe out, and it looked terrible- all clumped on the brush. I tried using it about 4 times before giving up. I'm not sure if I just got a bad batch of it, or if they are all like this but I will not be buying this again.
This was a terrible product. After a few attempts , I ended up throwing it away. It is so clumpy as to be completely unusable, not coming close to the consistency you would need for mascara. Keep on looking.
I fully support Thrive in seeking natural cosmetics and providing us with good products in the field.
After using it, my eyes and skin around the eyes turned red. I tried it several times and got the same result. I am not allergic to anything so I am not sure what was the issue. But this product did not work for me.
I love the color. If you wear facial lotion or sunscreen it can smudge and leave rings around your eyes, but it wipes off very easily. It does not flake so it actually seems to last longer than other brands I've tried.
Good (but messy!) for sensitive eyes
I've tried several different kinds of natural mascara, and nothing has ever worked to keep my eyes from getting red and itchy. This works! Wear it every day all day long and no red, itchy eyes - a miracle! It's easy to remove with my regular facial cleanser, although it does take a bit more scrubbing than other mascaras. I don't find that it runs or flakes at all during the day, even after a long, hot run. The only negative is that it is a bit thicker than normal mascara, almost a clay type of consistency, so it doesn't go on easily. I find I have to really roll my lashes around the brush, which is kind of fat and not easy to use. I almost always end up with smears, especially under my lower lashes. I little water on a q-tip cleans it up, but it's annoying and time consuming. A smaller brush would probably fix the problem.
Smudges easily, reddish color
I bought because of the many great reviews, but was disappointed with this product. The brown color has a reddish hue and it smudges easily onto the surround eye lids. So eventually throughout the day I started to look a little zombie-like...something I try to avoid ;) I won't buy this again.
Great product, with great values
Love this!! The color is beautiful and looks natural. It stays on all day but comes off easily at night. I would almost swear my eyelashes have benefited from getting a more natural product on them than some other brands. Highly recommend!
It is very thick mascara and does not apply evenly.

I am so happy to have found this mascara and that it's sold on Thrive! It checks all my boxes: lasts all day, perfect natural-looking color, great ingredients and no irritation.
Love this mascara. I am someone who has to worry about mascara running by the end of the day, there is nothing worse than those smudges. I was hesitant to try it because of this, but it proved to be fantastic. I do apply 3 coats to get nice coverage, but it has a nice soft color and isn't clumpy either.
Amazing Brodart for someone like me who doesn't have dark lashes naturally, wearing this gives me the look I want without looking like I've cakedone on a ton of product. It's smooth and thick, stays on all day without smudging or running. I will definitely be buying this again!
I tried the brown even though I usually use black. (The black was out of stock). I really like the brush and how it goes on thick. It doesn't run or flake. I just go over the brown with a touch a black and it's a great brown-black.
This brown is true to brown and I love it. I use it every day and it never smears or runs. A great mascara!
Goes on Smooth
This mascara is fantastic. I love the wand that comes with it and that I don't have raccoon eyes at the end of the day!

Does not run/wear throughout the day, smooth application.
Great All-Natural Mascara!
This is my first try of a natural mascara and I am very pleased! The brush is pretty standard and isn't the best at defining and clumps if you aren't very careful, but if you are careful it goes on well. I haven't had any problems with it smudging even after tears! It takes more work to remove than normal mascara (surprisingly). I love that it is a more subtle brown rather than black since I'm a blond. Overall, I feel that the pluses outweigh the negatives!
Works well, but contains gluten?
I have light colored lashes, so I was glad to find a brown mascara made with natural ingredients. It applies well, though a little thick, and wears well throughout the day. My eyes were never irritated. On the other hand, I have celiac disease and, though the effect was mild at first, by the end of the week I wore this mascara, it was clear I was getting glutened somehow. I stopped using the mascara and my symptoms improved, so I wrote to the company asking if the cellulose or vitamin E was from wheat or contained gluten. They never wrote back, so I've had to stop wearing this, even though I liked it. If the company said it was gluten free, I would try again.
