You may not get lashes quite like Penelope Cruz, but you also won’t get chemicals in your eyes.
We’re obsessed with anything retro, especially when it allows us to go plastic-free. That’s why we’re loving the new mascara cakes fromTwink Beauty. Just add a drop of water, rub the applicator in the mixture and voila—perfect lashes for day or night!
A magical mixture of nothing but minerals, botanicals and natural oils to condition and color your lashes and make them stand out, this mascara is water-resistant and tear-proof, yet comes off with soap. And it’s vegan, to boot!
What’s in it? Purified water, aloe vera, candelilla wax, acacia gum, iron oxides, vitamin e, vitamin c, grapefruit seed extract, and potassium sorbet. What’s not? Well, mercury, for one thing. Parabens. And all that other crap we’re conditioned to think we need to be beautiful.
Try the classic black or brown, or go wild with aubergine, emerald, sapphire or teal. To make the color really pop, start with an undercoat of white. At just $8 per tin—including an applicator brush, but you can also wash and recycle your favorite from an old tube—you can afford to experiment.
