I do love my mascara – it’s one of my daily staples. I’m pretty lazy with regards to other eye make-up, but I feel naked if I leave the house without a whizz of the mascara wand. I’m often really sleepy in the morning, so mascara makes my eyes look bigger and brighter and helps to hide that half asleep look from the rest of the world!
The Lavera brand, with around 25 years of experience in the beauty industry, is one I’ve come to trust. I was therefore keen to try out their Volume Mascara, which retails at £11.90 on the MyPure website. I think this is a very reasonable price for a product which is completely natural, and 100% vegan. You can never be too careful when using make-up products near your eyes, and this one is both dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, as well as being suitable for contact lens wearers.
The mineral based pigments provide a really natural and deep colour, and combined with the organic waxes and natural shea butter, the mascara glides on without clumping, and provides a really full look, which will last you all day. I’ve found it doesn’t flake off during the day, like many mascaras can, and I think this is down to the lovely natural oils.
There are no claims of being waterproof or resistant to tears – but to be brutally honest, those which can withstand water and tears are probably packed full of chemicals which you probably don’t want to be putting that close to your eyes anyway. I can live without having a complete water resistant face – I love my eyes!
Another winner for the wonderful Lavera brand. Lavera are against animal testing and committed to producing natural and sustainable cosmetics.
I was sent this product free of charge from MyPure for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
