We’re just going to come out and say it “there’s no better time than now to swap out your beloved mascara for an equally chic and effective all natural one”.
Why, you ask? Well, cause the same inky formula that leaves you with ‘eyes to kill’ may also be filled with parabens, synthetic colors, dyes and other harmful ingredients that can be toxic to you, your reproductive system and the environment when washed down the sink. However, with the booming clean cosmetics space, there’s really no reason to risk it anymore.
With that being said, there’s a veritable cornucopia of natural mascaras out there— lengthening, curling, plumping, primer-inclusive, waterproof and while, having so many options is definitely a good problem to have, it can be baffling for beauty neophytes.
We’ve been there too! It takes a bit of trial and error to find the right one. But to give you a head start, we’ve curated a bunch of our favorite natural mascaras that actually work. Happy swapping!

Plus, it comes in two different shades—try soft black when you want a more natural look, and blue for a more dramatic effect. Tip: a little goes a long way.
If you desire juiciness and thickness with the very first swipe, then this one’s for you. Made without tar, petroleum and alcohol, you won’t believe the volume this mascara delivers. It instantly makes lashes look incredibly fuller, sans clumping and flaking. For maximum effect, twirl the brush as you swipe it through your lashes for a bold look.
