I have been on the hunt for a new mascara since using cruelty-free products because I would no longer buy L’oreal or Maybelline. I often wear contacts so mascara for me needs to be completely smudge free and fast drying which most waterproof ones failed quite terribly but the NYX more to love (which is technically not even waterproof) has stood out so much that I have been using it ever since.
As you can see below the mascara is black and has a slim plastic wand with very fine bristles in different lengths to grab every lash – one coat gives you good separation and feathery looking lashes, second coat is more black, gives you more volume and lift while still looking quite natural – nothing clumpy or lashes sticking together. It doesn’t wear off by any means throughout the day, even if you had little sleep and wear a thick layer of creamy concealer it won’t budge!
The best way to remove this is with an oil or balm cleanser but it comes off pretty well for such a long wearing mascara. Another plus for me is that this only costs about 8€ because I don’t really see spending more than that on a beauty product I should replace every 3 months.
I love this and I’m so glad that I can now wear full on mascara with my contacts and not worry about it getting everywhere!
So what’s your favorite mascara or do you have any cruelty free recommendations?
Also do you like natural bristles or plastic wand?
