Mascara is one of my favorite makeup items. I love the way it makes a woman look brighter, more awake, and sexier. Mascara was also one of the very last items of which I used a non-natural version…the thought of a bad mascara made me cringe. However, the quality of clean, non-toxic beauty items has made absolute leaps and bounds in the past several years….yay! Now, there are actually options. For the past 8 years or so I have used clean, all-natural makeup…but I’ve only used clean mascara for the past year or two. That is a testament to how much I was clinging to my favorite non-natural mascaras.
Then when I found W3LL People mascara last year, I was so happy I could’ve danced around my room. I don’t exaggerate when I say that it easily replaces the chemical laden mascaras of my past. See my original review here.
To truly see in real-time how they compare, I used the W3LL People on one eye and the Lily Lolo on the other. Please excuse the photo quality, I wanted to get a shot of my eyes before I forgot and the lighting and angle weren’t the best. Hopefully this is sufficient for comparing the mascaras. A better camera is hopefully in my future!
The formula of the Lily Lolo seems drier and thicker to me than W3LL People’s. And as far as the brush goes, I vastly prefer the W3LL People, as it seems to coat my lashes really well and seperate them at the same time. Every time I use my Lily Lolo, I have clumping issues, but never have experienced this with the W3LL People. You can actually see some of the clumping in the photo. You can really get a good look at them both if you click on the photo to enlarge it. Also, I feel that I get more of a spidery-look with Lily Lolo. As far as wear, they both are very comparable, with no flaking at all and little to no smudging.
This is not to say that I dislike the Lily Lolo mascara. It wears well and does give volume and might be spectacular for someone else. However, for me, W3LL People still takes the non-toxic cake.
Have you used either or both of these mascaras? Which do you prefer? Do you have another brand of clean mascara that you love? Let me know!
