Close up of a closed woman's eye wearing makeup, including non-toxic mascara

never underestimate the power of a double layer of mascara. We know lash extensions are trending, but we’re big believers in the power of a good ol’ wand and tube. There are a billion brands on the market, but if you’re looking to keep your beauty capsule chemical-free you know that the struggle to find the right product is very real.

We’ve tried our fair share of mascaras in the past and we’re the first to admit that not all “natural” mascaras are created equal. We put our lashes to the test this spring and tried almost every mascara at green beauty hub The Detox Market. These are our top five picks for gorgeous, full, flake and clump-free lashes without a toxic ingredient in sight…

5 Best Non-Toxic Mascaras

THE AWARD WINNER: W3ll People Expressionist Mascara | Award winning and botanical-based, it takes a few coats, but this nourishing mascara gets our lashes well separated, longer, and really full. A green beauty babe favorite across the web too. CHECK OUT

PRO PICK: Lily Lolo Black Vegan Mascara | We love this mascara for adding length and volume. The long-lasting color works for day or night, and the clean formula is perfect for sensitive skin. We’ve met a few pros who seem to love this one. CHECK OUT

THE BRUSH OFF: ILIA Mascara | We’re obsessed with ILIA’s ethical and sustainably crafted products (their tinted lip conditioners are everything). This mascara was an instant fave, as it smells amazing and looks totally gorge. It’s light enough for day but can go glam easily with multiple coats. CHECK OUT

THE GLAM GETTER: Kjaer Weis Mascara | Kjaer Weis’ version is perfect for when we need long sexy lashes that stay long and sexy for hours. It adds crazy length and volume but still looks natural and washes off easily. CHECK OUT

THE FAKE OUT: Battington Lashes | Totally sustainable, synthetic and cruelty free, these false lashes are technically false, but no one would know. They’re 100% silk, make your eyes pop, and can be stored away for another wear. CHECK OUT
