Mascaras are tricky! We all want our lashes to look long and full, whether it’s every day when you’re getting ready for work, or for a special occasion. Most popular mascaras, however, from drugstore brands to the most expensive, high-end products, contain dangerous toxic ingredients. Having gorgeous thick lashes should not come at the price of your health.
Most of the best selling mascaras from Sephora and Ulta receive less than ideal ratings on our Think Dirty app. They often contain dangerous and potentially carcinogenic ingredients like BHT, Polyester, and certain Black Dyes. If you want more in-depth info on the mascara you’re currently using, download our app (on the App Store or Google Play store) and search the product for a full ingredient breakdown.
Contrary to popular belief, we are here to tell you that natural, safe mascaras can give you everything you’re looking for. You heard it here first! These mascaras are tried and true, with plenty of reviews to back them up.
