Lily Lolo Creamy Lash Alert Pure Natural Vegan Mascara Review

It's time for another vegan and cruelty free mascara review!  I started doing research into mascaras for my wedding and have really enjoyed sharing them with you.  If you missed the last two mascaras I reviewed, go check them out!  I looked at Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Pacifica's Aquarian Gaze Mascara.

Let's get to the review of Lily Lolo's Creamy Lash Alert Pure Natural Vegan Mascara!

What I have to say about it...

The Good

  • Very lengthening; 
  • Contains wholesome ingredients;
  • Doesn't smudge;
  • Doesn't flake,
  • Can be very natural-looking with a light-handed application;
  • Doesn't tend to clumping (as long as you scrape off the excess from the brush before application);
  • Separates the lashes;
  • Leaves the lashes very soft;
  • Applies very easily and smoothly;
  • Is very easily removed with almond or castor oil.

The Bad

  • Doesn't add a huge amount of volume;
  • clumps if you don't scrape off the excess OR do more than two light coats;
  • Doesn't hold curl as well as it could over the course of the day (though maybe my expectations are just too high, since so mascara holds a curl the way I'd like them too!).

RATING: 4.7/5

Vegan mascara comparison // Plant Based Bride

Final thoughts:  I LOVED the Pacifica Aquarian Gaze mascara, giving it a 4.5 out of 5 in my review.  The Lily Lolo mascara is VERY similar to the Pacifica mascara, but with a little more length and volume.    They both have a more natural look than the Better Than Sex mascara, but the Lily Lolo mascara adds a bit more oomph than Pacifica.  I also find it a little easier to remove (and therefore easier on my lashes) than both of the other mascaras.  For this reason, the Lily Lolo mascara is my favourite of all the vegan mascaras I've tried!  I didn't want to give it a perfect 5/5, since I'm hoping to find a mascara that holds a curl the way I dream of, but I will DEFINITELY be repurchasing this mascara and highly recommend it!
