The one I really had high hopes for.
Meet Expressionist Mascara in Pro Black from W3LL PEOPLE. They are green cosmetic brand using super premium quality ingredients to deliver makeup performance. The team at W3LL PEOPLE believes in making positive life choices, specially when it comes to self-care. For them, “beauty is built on simplicity, authenticity and performance.” I like! 🙂 It’s a great cosmetic company that delivers that “no-makeup” makeup look with flawless coverage and beautiful colors.
While they pride themselves for their minimalist approach to makeup, there’s definitely nothing minimal about the ingredients. Using all-natural formulations for their cosmetic, W3LL PEOPLE’s products contain “an advanced botanical complex of organic aloe, organic chamomile and organic green tea.” So, technically it’s makeup with skincare benefits. Their superhero ingredient is the organic aloe, which helps nourish, moisturize, soothe, and heal the skin. What!?! That’s absolutely crazy. I’m still mind-blown that these cosmetic products provide skincare benefits. 🙂
So the mascara, W3LL PEOPLE uses a “boundary breaking formula” to make the lashes look big and bold, and cause of the advanced botanical complex, it nourishes the lashes as well. They also use a “new high tech brush design, with injection molded rubber and a unique cascade shape, precisely separates the thinnest, shortest, hard-to-reach lashes by expertly scooping up and lengthening each one—while delivering just the right amount of product.” 🙂
Currently, W3LL PEOPLE has 4 colors available: Pro Black, Pro Blue, Pro Purple, and Pro Brown. I have the Pro Black. 🙂 It’s gluten-free, non-GMO, and all natural. The Expressionist Mascara is also an EWG verified product with rating of 2.
So, I have a confession. I was never really a mascara kinda girl until the past year, when I discovered #greenbeauty cosmetics. The conventional drugstore mascaras just didn’t seem to give me that lengthening and boldness I was looking for in a mascara. Back then, I wore mascara every now and then, it just wasn’t a big deal in my makeup routine. However, all that changed (thanks to natural cosmetic products that truly work), and now I can’t even step outside the house without mascara on. I really feel “naked” without it on (unless it’s a be-a-bum-stay-at-home kinda day). 🙂 Ahhh, so good to get that off my chest.
The Expressionist Mascara, I initially loved this mascara. It definitely made my lashes big, bold, and beautiful. I loved the way it applied nicely on my lashes—truly no clumping action. Oh, and it really gave my lashes some good lengthening power. I didn’t even need to apply a second coat, that’s how dramatic it was (and I love dramatic lashes). However, about 5 weeks into using it on an almost daily basis, something just changed. The product on the brush became clumpy and when I applied it on, it totally made my lashes clump together. Not cool, not pretty at all. I would have to wait for it to dry (and it took a while) before using a spooly to separate my lashes. Then I would have to go in for a second and third coat. Seriously!?! What just happened!?! It went from being big and bold to clumpy and flaky. So yes, I really had high hopes for this one, and I’m really struggling to let it go just cause I hate wasting unexpired products, and I definitely can’t just give it to someone else to use (ummm, absolutely unsanitary). Yikes!
So, I guess I’ll be continuing my journey of checking out every single natural mascara out there on the market. 🙂 Do y’all have a favorite or any awesome recommendations? Is there a particular mascara y’all would like me to check out? Lemme know in the comments below. 🙂
