plastic-free vegan black mascara in a tin

Pretty yourself without dirtying the environment! Plastic-free mascara in a 10ml metal tin.

 

Flutter your eyelashes to your heart’s content knowing that a cheeky wink of your volumized and defined lashes won’t leave the earth an ugly mess. 😉

 

*This mascara does not come with an application wand so make sure you save one from your old mascara bottle, but new wands can be purchased separately without a container.*

 

Suitable for sensitive eyes, but as with all make-up, do a patch test first just in case.

 

How to apply:

Wash your mascara wand under the tap for a few seconds, shake off the excess water. You just need the wand to be damp, not soaking wet. Roll your mascara wand back and forth in the tin to pick up the mascara on the wand. Apply to your lashes as normal. For a fuller lash effect, wait for the first coat to dry, then add more layers as needed. Avoid pulling too hard on the brush when getting the mascara out of the tin, as this will result in clumping. Be gentle, practice makes perfect. This mascara can also be used as an eyeliner or eyebrow filler, so have a play about with it!

  • Just go down to your local Boots or Superdrug and flinch in horror at the aisles upon aisles and rows upon rows of little plastic bottles in the make-up section. Make-up is big business. There are hundreds of brands all making, let’s face it, basically the same products, but packaged in brightly coloured and gaudy plastic containers to make us understand the ‘differences’ between them all. Well, there’s no difference to where they’ll end up, which is most likely landfill. Awkward to recycle, as most make-up containers are made using mixed materials, and are difficult to clean so will quite possibly be rejected as a contaminant in recycling plants. The make-up business has a lot to answer for with the amount of waste it’s responsible for creating. The beauty industry is more of a beast when it comes to the environment. Ugly, stubborn and unwilling to change its ways. Pollutants aren’t pretty.

     

    It’s not just the packaging that’s plastic either. Did you know that waterproof mascara tends to contain plastic in the ingredients? That’s what makes it waterproof! I used to only use waterproof mascara, and now knowing that I was coating my eyelashes in plastic every day concerns me somewhat….
