Is your mascara green-friendly?

Is your mascara easy on the eyes?

The Bite
Only if it’s non-toxic. Most mascaras contain not-so-pretty ingredients like parabens. Make sure the reaction to your mascara action is smashing lashes, not chem-laden side effects.

The Benefits

  • Longer-looking lashes, for eyes that hypnotize (just don’t ask people under your power to do anything illegal).
  • Non-toxic formulas. The FDA doesn’t require companies to safety-test cosmetics before marketing them, so stick with natural ones.
  • Cleaner waterways. Synthetic chems can leach out of bottles you throw away and end up in water supplies, untreated. And you thought clumping was bad.

Personally Speaking
Heather rarely leaves the house before applying her supervolumizing lavera mascara. She challenges any mascara model out there to a winking contest.
