Hi my beauty tribe! If you follow me on Instagram then you know I recently bought the W3ll People Expressionist Mascara. I wanted to compare the Lily Lolo Mascara and the W3ll Expressionist Mascara, because they are comparable. Recently I reviewed the Lily Lolo mascara, since I bought it several weeks ago. I think there is definitely more room for the green beauty world to create a better mascara, but I do have a favorite for now. Please keep reading if you want to learn which green beauty mascara is best for you.
W3ll People Expressionist Mascara- $21.99
This mascara does not clump.
It states that it “coats even the shortest of lashes, delivering a flawless and even finish.” This mascara hands down, gets the job done by defining every eyelash.
It has natural jojoba oil which nourishes lashes.
It’s suitable for sensitive eyes.
I had a little bit of fall out under my eyes.
Lily Lolo Mascara- $20
It definitely provides length and volume. At first I really liked this mascara, because of how much volume it gave my lashes.
When I first used the product, my lashes didn’t clump.
It lasts all day, and stays put.
It irritated my eyes throughout the day, but mostly towards the end.
My lashes started to clump after about a month of using this mascara. In this photo, I just pulled out the brush from the tube and you can see how clumpy the brush is.
At first I really liked the Lily Lolo mascara, mostly because it was the first green beauty mascara that gave my lashes length and volume. I didn’t like that it irritated my eyes. Overall I think I have a love/hate relationship with the Lily Lolo mascara. It’s like when you eat cake, and you tell yourself you are only going to take one bite. Then of course you take two more bites, and then before you know it you finished the cake.
The W3ll People Expressionist Mascara is good for right now. I really like that it doesn’t clump, and it grabs all of my lashes. It doesn’t irritate my eyes which is a plus.
Alright I know I haven’t been posting as much, but I really wanted to post this review today. This is a review on the Lily Lolo mascara. This mascara has a lot of hype, and for good reason. I also wanted to review these makeup wipes that I purchased at Target. Please make sure to check out these products.
Lily Lolo Mascara
This mascara is amazing! I have been wanting to try this out for a long time. I heard a lot of great reviews about it, and now I can understand that it truly is great. As of now, I think this mascara is my number one, and number two would go to the Pacifica’s Dream Big mascara. I bought this mascara on Petit Vour for $20. I think this is a great product, and I only wish it was accessible in stores. My lashes were naked for a week, because I was waiting for it to come in the mail. Four coats of this mascara, and my lashes are voluminous and long. The one down side that I have noticed with this mascara is when I cry I kind of get this burning feeling. For that reason I try to fan myself when I’m laughing because I don’t want my eye to burn from the mascara. Other than that though I would repurchase!
Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Facial Wipes
So I went to Reno last weekend, and I’ve been just using coconut oil as makeup remover, but I didn’t want to carry a container of coconut oil when traveling. So I went to Target and got these wipes for $5.49. These wipes are biodegradable which was a bonus reason for buying them, because I’m always watching my carbon footprint. I really like these wipes because they don’t irritate my eyes. I have used a lot of wipes and makeup removers and they just hurt my eyes so much, that I’ve just stuck to using coconut oil to remove my makeup. But because I was traveling, I definitely wanted a makeup remover that was light in my duffle bag, and easy to use. I also love the rose scent!
Okay there isn’t much to say other than I love this scent. I use it as an aromatherapy scent, so if I feel like a need a pick me up, I think this scent makes me feel refreshed and energized. I also love putting this in my hair to make it smell good, and I will mist it on my face in the morning or at night. Overall I think everyone will likes this spray.
Let me know what you think! Have you tried any of these products?
At this time last year I was researching makeup brands, and finding out which were cruelty free. Here are five things that I learned about going cruelty free.
The first thing I learned was that it was difficult to find my holy grail cruelty free products. Mascara was one of the most difficult things to find, since I was obsessed with Covergirl’s orange lash blast mascara. I eventually found my holy grail which is Pacifica’s Dream Big mascara. I guess what I want to say is that it is a lot of trial error in switching to cruelty free makeup products.
Shop at TJMaxx for cruelty free brands. I bought Crystal deodorant, and Jason shampoo for a reasonable price at TJMaxx. I also found this gem (pictured) at TJMaxx, I only wish it was a larger container, since it made me feel like I traveled to Hawaii.
The brand E.L.F became my best friend. I really liked the eyeliner, and HD translucent powder (pictured). I also love E.L.F brushes. They are soft and affordable, I think the most expensive one is $3. Like are you kidding!
Buy samples or travel size makeup products. I bought the Vapour sample kit which was about $17 with shipping, but I got a $10 promo code, and I figured out which product I wanted to buy full size. You should definitely switch to cruelty free products slowly, and I think buying samples or travel size makes it easy because you can decide which product you like the most.
I became more aware of the ingredients in the products. I started watching Laura’s Natural Life on YouTube, and she made me aware of more green products that I should be using. Towards the end of the year I found out about The Organic Bunny, and I absolutely love her blog. For the new year I will be switching to more green makeup products. I will upload a blog post about why I am switching to green products later.
Please tell me what you think, and let me know what your experience has been since switching to cruelty free makeup products.
First, if your favorite song is “Shine Bright like a Diamond” raise your hand! Yes love, you will shine just like Rihanna with this highlighter! I am in absolute love with the Colourpop highlighter in Wisp. I haven’t used too many highlighters in my life, but I mean wisp has me hooked like a baby to it’s teddy bear. I dab it with my finger, and a tap it on my cheekbone. I think it helps I have high cheek bones too! The one thing I don’t like about Colourpop‘s packaging is that they don’t have palettes. I think it would be great if they had a highlighter palette, that way you can just carry a variety of highlighters. Wisp feels light, and it makes my skin glisten like a perfect New York apple. I’ve never been to New York personally, but that’s what I know they are known for!
The next product is Wet n’ Wild’s Max Volume mascara which is waterproof. Since I went to a music festival (EDC) I knew I was going to be sweaty, so I opted for a waterproof mascara, but I knew I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. This one costed $5.49 at CVS. Surprisingly, it felt like a $20 mascara. I think the wand is perfect. It is long, and thin towards the end, and it’s not bulky. I personally don’t like waterproof mascaras too much though, because they are difficult to take off at night. I think that’s my only con with this mascara. I did notice some flakes, but nothing too serious. If you have thin long lashes, and you are looking for volume, then buy this mascara. It’s also great if you are going to be in the desert or a festival for a long time, because waterproof mascara will hold a long time in dry and hot conditions.
