If you are looking for a natural or organic mascara you might be surprised to find that there are quite a few decent options out there.
I have tried so many – from $40 to $5 mascaras and I will say that more expensive does not always mean better. There are a few great affordable mascaras.
In this post, I will share my thoughts on some of the most affordable clean natural and organic mascaras that you can find in drugstores and online, as well as some popular high end options.
Ok, so I'm starting off with the BEST natural mascara! This mascara is my favorite. It gives a very dramatic look with voluminous and long lashes. At first, it is very wet, which I had to get used to. But with time it dries a bit and applies less wet. I only need one coat of this mascara and it lasts all day.
I also love that it comes with a primer on one end, which helps condition lashes and adds bulk for length and volume. Both brushes are silicone.
Another plus, it's under $15! You can shop for this mascara on Amazon or your local Target. Shop for it here.
This mascara is very lengthening and gives a nice natural look. When I tried it I applied several coats to try to achieve thicker lashes but it doesn't do much for volume. It does add lots of length and definition. I usually prefer more drama so this one is not one I go to often, but it is a very popular and affordable clean mascara for those who just want length, separation, and a natural look.
It wears well, doesn't flake, and applies nicely. It's a wet formula.
This mascara is available at many drug stores like CVS making it a great, accessible option. Another mascara with a natural finish, this will add some length and a little volume but nothing dramatic. It is said to be great for those with sensitive eyes. The tube also dries quickly so it will not last as long as others.
It's also a steal at under $10! Shop for it here.
Another very natural looking mascara. It separates and adds length but little volume. It is a drier formula so reapplication gets clumpy. It also has a silicone brush. I noticed a bit of flaking with application.
They have a nourishing and volumizing option. Shop for it here.
ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara – mini
ILIA Limitless Lash is one of the most popular mascaras in the green beauty world. It adds the perfect amount of length and volume, doesn't clump, and lasts all day. It has a unique brush that does really well at separating lashes but sometimes can stab while I'm applying.
Yet another natural looking mascara (noticing a theme here?). It is water-resistant, not waterproof, and adds good length and definition. It is wet but dries quickly and a second coat applies easily. Some people do complain that it smudges but that did not happen to me. You can buy it here.
Some of my other favorites
I'm including a few mascaras that are in the $20-$30 price range for those who are looking for more high quality ingredients.
Nocturne is one of my favorite high end mascaras. It gives a less dramatic finish than Honest Beauty but still adds length and volumizes. It's a fluffier, full look. This mascara is drier but it lasts a long time. It applies wet but dries quickly. I have noticed recently that it sometimes smudges later in the day if it's really hot or humid. But I feel like it's the perfect balance between drama and natural. Shop for it here.
This mascara is like a more affordable version of Hynt, but it's also water-resistant. It applies the same way and gives a similar finish. But it is a bit more stubborn to remove though so it's great for anyone who struggles with natural mascaras smudging. Shop for it here.
This mascara gives a more natural look. It's a great dependable mascara that lengthens and defines without smudging or flaking. It's a wet formula with a natural brush. Shop for it here.
This is a mascara that I have been hearing about for years but I simply refused to spend over $30 on a mascara (it costs $38). Luckily, I got it in a Petit Vour box and now I see what all the fuss is about.
It lengthens, adds volume, and defines lashes very well while staying put all day. It still looks natural but very close to the drama I get from Honest Beauty mascara. It does dry quickly so you have to work quickly with this one if you want to apply several coats.
I think it's one of the best green beauty mascaras but I'm not sure it's worth the price tag. It is supposed to help your lashes grow as well so maybe if it truly does do that it would be worth it. Shop for it here.
Sappho New Paradigm is another one that has a good reputation, but also a big price tag. This mascara is $34 and it is really good too. The brush is very similar to the ILIA Limitless Lash mascara and honestly, it performs the same. With ILIA being nearly $10 less I'd go for ILIA. Shop the Sappho mascara here.
