I just bought the Gabriel Color Mascara, and I like it a lot! It gives me the natural looking lashes which is what I want. The only down side is it's uberly expensive, meh.

I use this one and I like it : ( but the "gel-based formula" thing seems a bit suspicious to me.

It was my understanding (which is obviously not the same as "this is a fact") that all the Origins mascaras are vegan. The only things I look out for from the company are beeswax and honey. And I actually have the Full Story mascara right now!


I just bought the Full Story mascara a couple of weeks ago. I confirmed that it is vegan and I really like it.



Wooo!

I'm buying it again then, i love it.

I got a friend to bring me back a tube of Zuzu Luxe. I love it. More than BarryM (the only other vegan mascara I've liked). And waaaay more than the Beauty Without Cruelty waterproof mascara I bought recently and only used a couple of times because it didn't really do anything.
Since you've had both Zuzu and Barry M, how do the brushes compare? Why do you like Zuzu more than Barry M?

sorry if that's asking you for more information than you wanted to share, I'm just curious because I really wanted to try Barry M, but if you think Zuzu is better, I'd like to know your opinion of why.

I'm curious too! I didn't like Zuzu (too clumpy), but I was considering ordering Barry M.

Truly. I thought I liked Zuzu, but it's so difficult to use. I don't have that much patience. Maybe I'll try Origins?

The hunt for the "perfect" vegan mascara continues...

I really like Origins mascara, as well as ZuZu. Origins seems to make my lashes more defined, more precise brush and nice formula.
I want to try the Manic Panic mascara in the next few months.

I like the Origins Full Story, but not enough not to try something different next. It almost makes my lashes a bit spiky, not soft enough looking. It's been a bit better as it's dried out / thickened up a bit, but it's not up to par with my pregan favorite, so I keep looking!

I'm not totally won over by it either. I like it more than Lavera and Gabriel Cosmetics though. It's about equal for me with ZuZu Luxe. I still prefer Korres, but I didn't get a tube that dried out quickly; if I had, that would have made it less favorable for me. I think I'm going to try Manic Panic, and then if I'm not crazy for it, I might just stick with the Korres.

Somewhere else I had read that arbonne was the absolute best. I had to order it through amazon, since it's some kind of Mary Kay like company. I have to say it's just barely okay, but still the best of what I have tried so far. I'm looking for something more dramatic and goopy. I also tried that drugstore brand that's strangely vegan that I can't remember the name of ... that was worse.

Does anyone know if Mally Beauty mascara is vegan? The only questionable ingredient I see here is glyceryl stearate (stearic acid can be derived from plant or animal sources).

Ingredients: Water (Aqua Purificata) Purified, Synthetic Beeswax, Paraffin, Stearic Acid, Acacia Senegal Gum, Triethanolamine, Butylene Glycol, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Glyceryl Stearate, Polybutene, Tricontanyl PVP, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Polyquaternium-65, Hydrolyzed Rhodophycea Extract

Has anyone given Manic Panic a good test run yet? My BWC mascara is almost gone so I either need to order a new tube or try another brand.

Have I said before that I'm loving the Ecco Bella mascara? Because I do. Best of the vegan mascaras I've tried, gives me nice full, dramatic lashes, which is what I'm after. I have to build it up a bit more than I remember doing with non-vegan mascaras, but that's hardly a big deal.

I've been using it for a while and it's still my favorite I think. It's definitely the most dramatic vegan mascara I've ever used, my only complaint is that it can clump up on the lashes a bit if I'm not careful to wipe off some of the excess before putting it on. But I haven't had any smearing or raccoon eyes or anything.

I'm back on the hunt. I figured out I was having a minor allergic reaction to the Wet n Wild mascara, so that's out. Then I had a major reaction to something else (red raccoon eyes that were swollen so bad I looked like I got punched in both eyes.) So I'm waiting on the results of my allergy test before venturing into other cosmetics.

I don't know if this is useful to anyone, but I got a pack of lone mascara wands use them to get rid of clumps. It works wonders to separate and fix mascara that wears well but a little too thick.

Yeah, the MP is great. Someone broke mine, wish I had another. :(
I'm loving the Barry M mascara for day wear, great length, buildable.

Does anyone know of a nice mascara with a big fat brush? I find the bigger, rounder brushes to be the most effective for my lashes. My pregan fave was Dior Catwalk, the brush looked like this:

Melisser, is the MP better than Zuzu Luxe?

Momo, i think people have said that the manic panic brush is big and full (i haven't tried it myself), and i use aveda mosscara, and that brush also seems pretty big and full (to me).

So I got two kinds of ELF mascara yesterday: Mineral Infused and Lengthening & Volumizing. Because for $1/ea, I can afford two at once. I tried them out today, one on each eye. :p I have long, thin, blonde eyelashes, so I am always looking for volume and intense color in my mascaras.

In short, neither is my favorite mascara of all-time, but they're pretty good, especially for the price point. The mineral infused definitely thickens more than the volumizing, and is overall a thicker, more dramatic mascara. The brush on the mineral infused is slightly rounder/thicker as well, and has a flexible end-tip.

Both brushes are very good at reaching each and every lash, and both mascaras build well, with very little clumping (literally one little clump on one eye). The look from each is very natural, and I prefer a more dramatic look, so I was especially glad about the building aspect.

I haven't left the house with them yet, but if they survive the 103F we've been having lately, ELF might be my new go-to.

PS. They have stearic acid listed on the ingredients (??) but they use synthetic beeswax.

SHUTUP!!!!! I've been dragging my feet on getting a new mascara because I'm grumpy about my options (and technically I have a couple of perfectly good ones that I just don't like).

THIS HAS MADE MY DAY!

ETA: The young lady of Fashion Pirate and Powder Doom reviewed the new UD items here: http://powderdoom.tumblr.com/post/7457072413/urban-decays-new-collection I was going to ask her if she recalled any being vegan, but tumblr isn't as user-friendly for commenting.
