Review: Kismet Cosmetics Mascarade Natural Mascara

*self purchased*

In my mission to "indie" all my beauty needs I've yet to find a mascara that I like. When I saw that Kismet Cosmetics was releasing a natural, Paraben-free, Phthalate-free mascara AND there was a special 15% off code and free shipping to celebrate the release I couldn't resist!

About Kismet Cosmetics 

KISMET. So simple, yet a word that isn't widely known. KISMET means destiny or fate. Which, from experience, is a word that can sum up life. Fashion is more than just the clothes you wear. It is the right hairstyle. It is the right shade of lipstick. It is the highlighting of your skin. Kismet is the perfect accessory to that LBD or LWD you just purchased.

Made with a wax blend of natural Beeswax and Organic Carnauba Wax lengthens, separates and thickens lashes without crumbling, flaking or falling. This jet black formula is lightly scented with essential oils like lavender and lemon.

I have sensitive eyes and many mascaras will irritate my "peepers".  Especially those fiber lash type mascaras (which you tend to find all over your face in little pieces during the thanks!).  

I was really happy with this mascara, it has a very full applicator brush so I'm deeming this more of a volumizing formula but I found that it added some nice length too. 

The mascara dries more "soft" to the touch vs some mascaras that make your lashes feel very stiff and brittle.  I didn't notice any irritation to my eyes wearing it all day and it didn't flake off or smudge (and it was 90 degrees today!) It also didn't run with a 35 minute stint on the treadmill. Its not waterproof (which I generally can't wear anyways) but I found that it stood up to my day!

Sorry about the Brows....I was not in the mood to fill them in today!
As I mentioned above Mascarade is Paraben-Free, Phthalate-Free, Cruelty-Free and its made in the USA!   Mascarade retails for $18.50 - click here to go directly to the online listing.
