8 Best Natural Mascaras — No Flaking or Smudging!

8 Best Natural Mascaras — No Flaking or Smudging!

My hes­i­tant usage of mas­caras began with Dr. Hauschka near­ly 8 years ago. It was my very first for­ay into mas­cara, and I remem­ber that I loved the way my lash­es stood out…and how my eye­lids itched like hell. I then dove into my mom’s mas­cara sup­ply, and was con­tin­u­al­ly intrigued by the scary look­ing spines on skin­ny wands that you’re sup­posed to stick pret­ty eff­ing close to your eye­ball. While I cer­tain­ly enter­tained and prid­ed myself on my brav­ery, I didn’t appre­ci­ate how every sin­gle mas­cara either gave me that oh-so-desired rac­coon look or elicit­ed itchy eye­lids. I fig­ured I was des­tined to have blonde, mas­cara-pho­bic eye­lash­es for life. Then 3 years ago an amaz­ing friend of mine start­ed tint­ing my eye­lash­es black and bam! issue resolved.

Eh not quite. While I am extreme­ly grate­ful for hav­ing nat­u­ral­ly long, curled eye­lash­es that allows the tint to give me a mas­cara-like effect on the dai­ly, when I want to go all out and…(dun dun dun) put on eye­shad­ow and what not, then mas­cara is def­i­nite­ly in order.

Thus I have per­son­al­ly inves­ti­gat­ed every known nat­u­ral mas­cara on the mar­ket since 2010. That’s a pret­ty good gig. 😉 I present to you my favorite mas­caras all neat­ly tucked into one place.

Alima Pure Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

Ali­ma Pure Nat­u­ral Def­i­n­i­tion Mas­cara $22

A rel­a­tive new­bie to the mas­cara scene. This mas­cara is fan­tas­tic for those that want length, sep­a­ra­tion, and rich col­or.

W3LL People Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

W3LL Peo­ple Expres­sion­ist Bio Extreme Mas­cara $23.50

The for­mu­la and wand are amaz­ing on this mas­cara. It cre­ates length, curl, and sep­a­ra­tion and doesn’t smudge or flake.

ILIA Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

ILIA Mas­cara $26

I prefer a slight­ly thick­er, less sep­a­rat­ed look to my lash­es, and this rich­ly pig­ment­ed, lus­cious mas­cara pro­vides just that.

Real Purity Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

 

Real Puri­ty Mas­cara $15

A long-time favorite of mine and win­ner of the 2011 and 2012 Epic Beau­ty Awards. The for­mu­la is very sim­ple, mak­ing it ide­al for those with hyper­sen­si­tive skin.

Kjaer Weis Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

Kjaer Weis Mas­cara $38

The wand is a bit short­er and eas­ier to con­trol, it deposits rich col­or, and makes lash­es thick. I am told by some peo­ple that it is slight­ly prone to flak­ing, though I have not expe­ri­enced this myself. Plus, the tube is refill­able.

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

100% Pure Fruit Pig­ment­ed Mas­cara $21

I’ve always loved 100% Pure for their gen­tle, fruit-based for­mu­la­tions, and this love­ly mas­cara is no excep­tion. It tends to smudge a bit on very oily eye­lids.

Afterglow Pure Soul Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

After­glow Pure Soul Mas­cara $24

Beau­ti­ful, rich col­or. Espe­cial­ly won­der­ful for those with gluten or talc sen­si­tiv­i­ties — this mas­cara offers the rare ben­e­fit of con­tain­ing no wheat, gluten, or talc.

Organic Glam Mascara | 7 Best Natural Mascaras | Epic Beauty Guide

Organ­ic Glam Mas­cara $38

Fan­tas­ti­cal­ly lux­u­ri­ous and volu­miz­ing – some­thing you would expect out of an expen­sive depart­ment store mas­cara. The only down­side is that if you’re gluten sen­si­tive, this one may not be for you (it con­tains wheat pro­tein).

Which nat­u­ral mas­cara is your favorite? Let us all know. 🙂
