I’ve been obsessed with mascara since I was able to wear it in 7th grade. Because I’m very picky about performance, finding the best clean mascara was not easy.  In fact it was the very last product I replaced when I switched to Clean Beauty.  Now I’ve found the perfect formula: Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara

I’ve tried 5 or 6 clean versions that either smudged, flaked, burned my eyes or simply disappeared during the day. This conditioning, lengthening formula is long-wearing and doesn’t flake or smudge. Best of all this formula is free of propylparaben, butylparaben, and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are preservatives commonly used in mascaras which can disrupt hormones. These ingredients are all on Beautycounter‘s lengthy Never List.  Three years in development this special formula conditions with organic oils and shea butter. The special wand both lengthens and separates for great definition.

My eyelashes are fairly long but very blonde and don’t show at all when I’m not wearing mascara. I’m going out on a limb here and showing you a before and after. Quite a first here but I love it so much that I wanted to show you the difference it makes.  In the first two photos, I have mascara on the left and not on the right.  See why I love it!?!?

I love it so much I’m giving away one to a lucky reader! To Enter:
