beauty scoop | physicians formula organic wear 100% natural origin jumbo lash mascara

It’s time to come clean with my mascara routine.

To be clear, I’ve never lied to you — I admitted to the Clean Beauty Blog that I was having trouble committing to a natural mascara.

But I am working on it.

When I had my interview with Sophie, I was using Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara. It was a fine mascara, but it dried out quickly and didn’t offer that va-va-voom that the dirty brands do.

Plus, as I’ve mentioned before, Tarte isn’t for the purists, and I’m still deciding on how purely natural I can be when it comes to cosmetics (you know how I feel about skincare).

Currently, I’ve been using Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara. It’s been living on my lashes for about a week, and while it’s way cleaner (and easier to remove!) than my old dirty love, I’m not quite sold on it.

See how Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara darkens my lashes:

For $9.99, Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara isn’t too shabby — but it’s not perfect.

My biggest complaints are 1) the brush caters to clumps and 2) the formula can smudge a bit by end of day.

My biggest bravos are 1) it’s made with cleaner ingredients; 2) it’s easy to remove; 3) it’s affordable and easily accessible (I bought my tube at Target); and 4) it’s made in the USA.

I’ll keep using my tube of Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara, but I’m also adding more natural mascaras to my to-try list.
