I have been looking for a mascara that would work for sensitive eyes, and since I can’t find any Essence mascaras anywhere in stores where I live, I decided to go out to look for a different alternative. For about a year now I have been using the Eyes Right mascara from Lush, but I felt like I needed a somewhat cheaper alternative because that one dried out fairly quickly so repurchasing it was becoming an expensive habit. It was also a bit awkward to use because the wand was so short, so something new was definitely in order.
I always found that regular and waterproof mascaras always made my eyes itch, and they felt kind of swollen after a day of wearing them, so I went all mascara-less for quite some time until I found the one from Lush. Lately I have done the same just to give my eyes a break and I must admit, I felt kind of naked without it.
Its kind of weird how a coating of black on your lashes can make you feel better, but that’s how it is for me! I suppose it is because my lashes point downwards and are pretty much invisible without it so I enjoy having my eyes framed properly. This mascara in particular does a pretty good job! It doesn’t really keep my lashes looking curled all day, because in all honesty, nothing can do that, but it holds up pretty well! It doesn’t smudge, because it is water resistant so you won’t have to worry about sweating it off during the summer! Here’s a few more details about the mascara, all taken from IsaDora’s website:
For extra sensitive eyes and short eye lashes
– Free from additives which, in extreme cases, may cause allergic reactions
– Special thin brush for sensitive eyes and short eye lashes
– Ophthalmologically tested
– For sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
Net content: 7 ml/.24 Fl.oz
Fragrance free. Clinically tested.
Not only is the mascara cheaper than Lush’s mascara, it also contains 2 ml more so I feel even better about saving money and getting more product! The thin brush is also a plus because it really helps with coating the lower lash line thoroughly without smearing mascara all over the place. The consistency is somewhere in the middle between wet and dry and I enjoy it a whole lot! It is also easy to layer if you prefer more bold lashes. I only have one coat on in the picture below, and you can see that is is quite pigmented and black. Even if you choose to go for two coats of mascara, it still feels very light weight and it’s so nice to use!
I’m really happy that I discovered it and I will definitely repurchase this when I run out, unless I find other amazing and hypoallergenic mascaras in the meantime while continuing to use up this tube. Do you have sensitive eyes? Or have you tried any mascaras that claim to be for sensitive eyes that worked for you? Please let me know so I can try them too.
