100% PureFruit Pigmented Mascara
Retails roughly around $20 – $26.
This mascara is one of few that actually uses black tea leaves to pigment rather than coal tar. Leaving out such harsh and toxic petrochemicals make for a much richer formula which allows for this mascara to be long-lasting without the smudging and flaking.
Another benefit of this mascara is the fact that it actually supplies lashes with the proper nutrients to thicken and lengthen naturally. These nutrients are derived from oat protein, wheat protein, and Pro-vitamin B5.
Furthermore, the formula is perfect for dramatic looks due to its ability to build on various coats, clump-free.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear Fake Out Mascara
Retails roughly around $10.49 – $12.99
Aside from how affordable and easily accessible this mascara is, it also happens to be perfect for a night out. This formula is infused with an organic lash boosting complex, natural fibers, and natural silk cotton.
This mascara is known to not only thicken but also separate each lash. Due to this factor, this mascara is amazing for more dramatic and intense looks. Additionally, the mascara is smudge-proof and is said to lash a full 24hours.
Burt’s Bees Natural Origin Nourishing Mascara
Retails roughly around $9.49 – $12.99.
This mascara is made with jojoba oil and Glycerin to naturally and effectively grow and nourish lashes. Due to the natural oils included in this formula, this mascara has the ability to build well without clumping!
This product is perfect for everyday wear. While this mascara probably isn’t the best fit for a night out, it is by far the best pick if you want to see legitimate growth and increase in volume for your natural lashes.
Honest Beauty Extreme Length + Lash Primer
Retails roughly around $9.99 – $14.99.
This all-natural product is a favorite simply due to the fact that it’s a two in one! This dual-ended mascara includes a fantastic eyelash primer that evens out, intensifies color, and enhances lash lengthening ability.
Aside from the convenience of its dual-ended tube, this product is also one step ahead of the game with it’s specially molded brush bristles which are actually designed to pick up each individual lash.
This dynamic duo makes for a very defined and extremely long-lasting look. While it isn’t labeled as a waterproof product, this mascara is praised for its durability.

La Bella Donna Women’s Mineral Mascara
The high-performance clean beauty line La Bella Donna offers a mineral mascara that gives rich volume to the lashes. La Bella Donna’s mascara has a smooth consistency and increases the flexibility of your lash hairs. The pigment is rich so I use my angled brush to apply the mascara to the roots of my lashes like an eyeliner.

Phyto-Pigments Mascara by Juice Beauty
Normally, when I hear about a “natural mascara”, I run for the hills! But then I tried the Phyto-Pigments Mascara by Juice Beauty! Made from rose powder, Aloe leaf extract, purple carrot phyto-pigment, and argan powder.
As a makeup artist, I need to be able to add layers upon layers of mascara during a shoot. It doesn’t clump, goes on like a makeup artists dream come true! I have had models, celebrities and brides who request a natural mascara because of sensitive eyes, so I was thrilled to the moon to find this mascara! It is worth the $24!

Ilia Mascara’s Limitless Lash
Ilia Mascara’s Limitless Lash is a favorite of mine and it has been one of the easier products to switch over to natural. The Limitless Lash helps with volume, does not clump, and lasts all day without smudging or leaving black residue under your eye.
Another perk, it washes off easily at the end of the day; I’ve never woken up with leftover mascara in the morning, and as a result, my natural lashes are fuller.

Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Mascara
Over the 7 years that I have used natural makeup, Honeybee Gardens is the brand I come back to again and again. All of Honeybee Gardens’ products are cruelty-free, vegan, and use natural ingredients.
You can find their mascara in 3 different colors for a drugstore price that makes this find a real gem. What’s more, you don’t have to look online to find this mascara! Honeybee Gardens can be found in the makeup section of most health food stores, like Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and Whole Foods.
My first impression when I bought this mascara was that it had a very different smell. It was a very pleasant, almost earthy smell that made me think of flowers. The applicator brush is standard and managed to separate each of my lashes perfectly. I can use this mascara for everyday looks, or I can layer it for stage makeup when I have a ballet performance.
I’ve had other natural mascaras stop working overtime, similar to how your hair can adjust to a certain brand of shampoo it seemed to love at first. But I’ve been using this mascara for several months and it hasn’t shown any signs of stopping.

This fruit-pigmented mascara from 100% Pure is infused with botanicals to not only give your lashes the length and volume they need but leave them healthier than before your application.
Ingredients like black tea, provitamin B5, and wheat protein nourish and condition your lashes without the toxic chemicals found in other mascaras. You can’t go wrong with a mascara that’s formulated to make your lashes look full and healthy, the all-natural way.
