Mascara: Down To The Studs
When transitioning to cruelty-free beauty, one of the hardest items to replace is mascara. With so many different options and needs, it can be hard to find the one for you, and the chances of it being a cruelty-free brand can be even slimmer.
We've rounded up our favorite mascaras from our editors and their Tested-on-animals dupe for easy transition to cruelty free lashes.
Better Than Sex Mascara Instead of DiorShow Mascara
One of the best cruelty-free mascaras, Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara comes in a regular and waterproof version and is extremely popular for that fake-but-natural lash look that everyone wants to achieve. If you were a lover of Dior's iconic Diorshow mascara, the waterproof version of Better Than Sex is a total dupe. It'll give you long, feathery lashes with a wicked curl that lasts all night long.
Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint Instead of Maybelline Colossal Volum'
For lovers of super voluminous mascaras like Maybelline Colossal Volum' and the L'oreal Voluminous, this mascara by Tarte has a dry texture that helps to build volume and length without ever flaking or getting too clumpy. It's guaranteed to give you that big lash look, and natural lash girls definitely won't be into this one.
Pacifica Aquarian Gaze Mascara Instead of Benefit They're Real
Benefit's They're Real mascara is a cult classic that gives faux eyelash length to otherwise short lashes. While it's not big on volume, it's a great mascara for a fluttery, natural look, and a perfect dupe for that is the Pacifica Aquarian Gaze Mascara. With rave reviews from all of it's users, this mascara provides curl and length without clumping or flaking. If you're looking to darken lashes and add length, this is definitely the one for you.
