Pur Minerals Fully Charged Mascara Review
I have been researching mascaras for some time, which let do this Pur Minerals Fully Charged Mascara Review.
First, I set out to find the ultimate lengthening mascara. I tried a couple different ones before realizing that my eyelashes were suddenly getting shorter. They were literally breaking off. They got so short that I actually freaked out a little. I was afraid they might not go back to their previous length.
I can’t say for sure if the mascara caused the problem or if it could have been the make up remover. Again, I tried several different removers at this time. It would be difficult to pin the blame on any one product because I switched so many times.
Next, I started looking so a mascara that was just “safe”. I tried a couple different ones before realizing that my sight was become extremely blurry. However, I noticed that every time I had some extended time of work my sight would improve again.
After doing some research and doing some trial and error, it became clear that either mascara or make up remover (or both) was making my eye sight blurry.
No girl wants to give up her mascara, right?
I have been wearing and/or playing in make up since I was five years old and I don’t care to stop now. So I started researching and looking for a mascara without chemicals.
Turns out these are amazing difficult to find. You have to look past the advertising and read the actually ingredient list. (Look Up Any Cosmetic on EWG.org.)
This led me to Pur Minerals Fully Charged Mascara. (This mascara has a rating of “1” on the site, which is the best you can get. I simply searched “mascara” and the most natural ones came up first.)
The Good & the Bad
After reading some of the reviews of other more natural mascaras I was afraid this one might go on wet and glumpy, but it didn’t. Two coats on each eye gets a nice look that gets my eyelashes looking long and luscious without looking over coated. (I actually must put three coats on one eye because those lashes haven’t completely recovered from previous products.)
It stayed on all day and I had no problems at all with smudging or flaking.
Some reviews I had read mentioned that is came off easily while others said it was difficult to remove. It came right off for me. No raccoon eyes after I got out of the bath. I used a mild cream remover, but tonight I plan to try plain soap and water to see what happens.
This morning it applied the mascara again, and it went on perfectly again. (JOY, JOY!)
This is my assessment so far. Today is just the second day of wear for me. However, I will update this post if anything changes.
- Goes on evenly
- Defines & lengthens
- No flaking
- No smudging
- Removes easily
- Only comes in one color – hope you like black 🙂
