I think my "usual" readers are probably well aware of my mascara affinity by now. I basically refuse to leave the house (even just to get the mail) each day without mascara on. My face is not prepared to face the world without mascara.
While most women are fiercely loyal to one mascara, I'm forever looking for the next mascara that will give me long, full lashes that border on looking like I'm wearing false eye lashes. I want them to be as amazing as possible. So, when an envelope arrived in my mail box with a mascara labelled "natural" I was not very interested. The mascara stayed untested for a week or so until I saw a commercial for it, in which L'Oreal promised length, volume and no clumping. The natural part referred to the 85% natural origin ingredients. Now I was interested!
You can see from the pictures here that this mascara really does deliver fantastic results. The wand somehow allows the mascara to be easily applied without clumping or creating spidery lashes. With just one coat of this mascara (as shown here) I had great length and volume that lasted pretty much all day. There was a little bit of loss in curl by the end of the day, but no problems with smudging or flaking. At the end of the day it washes off quickly and easily.
Overall, I can strongly recommend this mascara.
