Product Review: L'Oreal Bare Naturale Mascara

I get sucked in by advertising. I'll be the first to admit it.

So when my last mascara dried up, I went for the one I had most recently seen advertised - L'Oreal's new Bare Naturale mascara.

L'Oreal calls this a "gentle, nourishing mascara" which contains "86% natural-origin ingredients, shine-enhancing minerals and is both paraben- and fiber-free."

I should have known better than to trust those jerks over at L'Oreal

I do have to say that I adored this mascara when I first tried it out, but wow, it didn't take long for it to start sucking. After the first couple of days, the formula got really flaky, causing my eyes to be all red and itchy by lunchtime. It's a good look for me, I know.

The formula does go on beautifully though, without any clumping or lumping. I would definitely use this in a photo shoot if it was only going to be on for a couple of hours. It does give a very soft, natural, thick, dark lashline. It also was easy to remove. However, I wouldn't recommend it. As a matter of fact, I like it even less than the Telescopic. Again, it seems that Great Lash is the one to beat!

Rating: One out of five.

  1. For mascara I believe in Maybelline since the guy who started the company was the person who apparently invented mascara! (He mixed coal and whale something icky (early pertolium jelly to help his sista look smokin her name was Mable and they combined that with vaseline to make "Maybelline").
    I still get it all over my face when I put it on but I might also win at Jeopardy!
