Root Pretty Mascara & Liquid Eyeliner Review
So today I'm sharing my experience and thoughts on the Root Pretty 100% Lash Natural Mascara and the 100% Line Liquid Eyeliner with you all! All of Root Pretty's products are vegan and gluten free.
Ingredients: Water, Organic Chamomile Hydrosol, Carnauba Wax, Mica, Organic Coffee Powder, Organic Rice Powder, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Corn Starch, Lecithin, Vitamin E, Oregano Leaf Extract, Thyme Extract, Cinnamon Bark Extract, Rosemary Flower Extract, Goldenseal Root Extract, Organic Lemon Peel Extract, Organic Grapefruit Seed Extract, Vanilla Planifolio, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides
The Root Pretty mascara contains lash-nourishing ingredients like sunflower seed oil and vitamin E and features a bristle-brushed wand that effortlessly coats my lashes. I love how it contains 83% organic ingredients for such an affordable price.
Application is quite easy with this one as it doesn't poke my eyes or cause any irritation. As long as I wipe off the excess mascara on the wand, it doesn't clump up but rather leaves my lashes more voluminous and a bit longer with one coat. If I apply more coats, it looks a lot more dramatic, which I like, however, my lashes will fall straight down. Also, it doesn't flake throughout the day.
Since I have extremely oily skin and watery eyes, this mascara did smudge on me throughout the day even when I put translucent powder underneath my eyes and on the lashes prior to application. It also doesn't hold my curl throughout the day when I use a heated eyelash curler. I'm still on the lookout for a smudge-resistant mascara for extremely oily skin people like me!
Ingredients: Water, Glycerine, Behenic Acid (from ben oil tree), Cellulose Gum (from vegetable), Squalane (from vegetable), Xanthan Gum (from vegetable sugar), Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract, Organic Matricaria Flower Extract, Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Vanilla Planifolia • May Contain: Titanium Dioxide & Iron Oxides
I was really excited to try Root Pretty's liquid eyeliner since there are only a few green-beauty brands that offer liquid liners. It has a sturdy wand with a felt-tip that is easy to use. They only offer it in the color black which is actually a very dark black with cool undertones (might look a bit blue in different angles when applied).
Once you apply this on the eyes, it quickly dries, sets, and doesn't smudge (even without primer). I am so amazed at how long this lasts. It seriously doesn't budge even in extremely hot weather!
Although the applicator is easier to control than 100% Pure's liquid eyeliner, I still find myself reaching for a separate eyeliner brush to apply it (I've been loving Makeup Forever's Extra Fine Eyeliner Brush). I personally don't like using liquid eyeliners with wand applicators since the product gets onto my lashes and creates a mess. The wand gets very messy and goopy over time, as well. I also find that once I apply the liner, it doesn't apply opaquely and I have to go over it a few times and when I do, it erases what I drew earlier. I hope that makes sense (see picture above for a visual example). It requires more practice, patience, and time.
I would repurchase this eyeliner since it lasts forever on the eyes! I hope they come out with a dark brown color since the black is too harsh for my daily makeup.
Please let me know if there are any long-lasting mascaras or eyeliners you've tried or heard about!
