Petit Vour. Two words, that make me ecstatic! You guys know how much I love them! Well, I decided to do a review specifically on the Lily Lolo Mascara which came in the February Petit Vour box! I wanted to go over the ingredients and function more in depth here.
Here are the ingredients in the mascara:
AQUA (WATER), MYRICA PUBESCENS FRUIT CERA (MYRICA PUBESCENS FRUIT WAX), PROPANEDIOL, COPERNICIA CERIFERA CERA (COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX), POLYGLYCERYL-6 DISTEARATE, SUCROSE STEARATE, ACACIA SENEGAL GUM, GLYCERYL DIBEHENATE, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS SEED CERA (HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED WAX), LACTOBACILLUS FERMENT BIS-OCTYLDODECYL DIMER DILINOLEATE/PROPANEDIOL COPOLYMER, POLYGLYCERYL-10 MYRISTATE, ORYZA SATIVA BRAN CERA (ORYZA SATIVA (RICE) BRAN WAX), GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, ROSA CANINA FRUIT OIL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, XANTHAN GUM, POTASSIUM SORBATE, GLYCERYL UNDECYLENATE, [MAY CONTAIN CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES)]
For me, I want to put something natural on my body, dkin, eyelashes, etc. There were a couple of things I had to look up in this mascara, as I was not aware of them. I don't know if because they are based out of the UK, or not. Before I went green, I had become accustomed to looking up ingredients. so I can say I know a fair share of "strange" ingredients and preservatives.
Here is my research on the ingredients:
Propanediol- Non toxic, but has known effects of being irritating to skin, eyes and lungs (Rated a 1 on EWG)
Polygylceryl-6 distearate- PEG free emulsifier, non-toxic
Acacia Senegal Gum- Strong evidence for allergies (Rated 3 on EWG)
Glyceryl Dibehenate- Couldn't find much research (Rate 1 on EWG)
Lactobacillus Ferment- Couldn't find much information once again
Bis-Octydodecyl Dimer Dilioneate- Derived from natural raw materials including coconut oil, 1, 3, propanediol and dimer acid (couldn't find much more info)
Polyglycerol-10myristate- No info
Glyceryl caprylate- Mono ester of gylcerin & caprylic acid
Glyceryl Undecylenate- Ester of glycerin and undeclyenic acid (Rated a 2 on EWG)
Visit EWG.ORG for information on chemicals and ingredients! I hope my research helps others! Overall I think it is a very clean mascara, it was just scary to see all these weird words on the package, I was overwhelmed.
I do have to mention how gorgeous the packaging is! I love the matte packaging, and the feel of it!
Functionality: This mascara is like chocolate to me!!! I hope you catch my drift! I love it! The application is a bit chunky, but not hard to fix! It gives beautiful volume and length! I was shocked when I first put it on, I actually screamed. You get so used to the fact that a lot of natural mascaras leave your eyelashes looking flat and dull. I will admit, I think I have tried every natural mascara that is gluten free and vegan!! This is one of my top two right now, including The Lash Project by Red Apple Lipstick!
I will say there is minimal flaking on me. But, I do have super sensitive eyes, and they have not bothered me yet. It is also dries very quickly! I have been trying this mascara out for over a month, which I think is a good time frame.
I hope this blog post and pictures are helpful! I would recommend this mascara to anyone! If you would like to see a first impressions picture follow me on Instagram @andiethegreenqueen, I posted a picture there!
Thank you for reading! xoxo
