I've tried a few different non-toxic mascaras over the years, and I've finally found one that I don't want to replace with another brand. 

Mascara is one of those products that many women find tricky to replace with an organic or natural formula. Many natural mascaras are very wet, prone to smudging and don't offer much in the way of length or volume. 

I have the Ere Perez Mascara in both the Natural Almond Oil Mascara and the Volumising Waterproof Mascara.

You can purchase Ere Perez from Beautiful Because and Nourished Life (ships worldwide) in Australia.
Ere Perez is also available from Naturisimo in the UK.


My lashes are naturally very long, so a smudge-proof formula is a must for me - otherwise I end up with mascara dotted along my brow bone, and underneath my eyes - no matter how much I set it with a powder.

I also live in climate that is fairly humid in Summer, and can get windy/drizzly in Winter, so I want need something that isn't going to smudge/run everywhere at the first sign of moisture. 

The Ere Perez Volumising Waterproof Mascara lives up to the name.

The formula isn't overly wet (without being dry), and is quite thick compared to some mascaras. 
I can apply several coats, without smudging, clumping,  flaking or the dreaded panda eyes, and it never transfers to my brow bone or under eye area (unless I smudge it there when I'm applying it) on its own. 

Mascara can also get too stiff, dry and begin to crumble when you apply several layers - the Ere Perez Mascara does not. Even when wearing several coats I don't get the irritation or heaviness of wearing a lot of eye make-up, which I find bothers me with some formulas. 

Application and Removal

The wand is a volumising-style brush (see here) that coats each lash well on the first swipe. 

The tube opening is firm enough that the right amount of product is dispensed onto the wand without a lot of effort.

If I want really defined, fluffy lashes, I curl my lashes with the Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler, then apply the Natural Almond Oil Mascara first. I let that dry, curl my lashes again, before applying 2 coats of the Waterproof Mascara (allowing to dry in between coats) 

I posted a photo (a selfie!) on instagram to give you a good idea of what the mascara looks like, and you can see more photos here and here.

As this is a waterproof mascara, you will need an oil to remove all traces.
My cleanser takes off most of it, but I remove the remaining mascara with Sweet Almond Oil and a cotton pad.

Certification and Ingredients

Mascara is another of those products that whilst we can get more natural, non-toxic versions, they are never going to be 100% organic.

The Ere Perez Volumising Waterproof Mascara is accredited by cruelty-free Australia and PETA USA. It is also vegan and fragrance free.

Carnauba wax (copernicia cerifera), Palm Kernel (elaeis guineensis), wax, Soybean (gyicine soja) seed oil, dimethicone, calcium stearate, mamey oil (pouteria sapota), Sweet almond oil (prunus amygdalus dulcis), Avocado oil (persea gratissima), Isopropyl plmitate, palmitic acid, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), Orange oil (citrus aurantium dulcis) oil, Lemon oil (citrus medica limonum), Bergamot oil (citrus bergamia). 
May contain: Iron oxides

The Ere Perez website also has excellent information on what each ingredient is and does.

This is my favourite, non-toxic, all-natural mascara that I've tried so far, and I definitely will continue to re-purchase. 
If you are looking for a waterproof, natural mascara, I highly recommend giving this one a go.

If you've got another recommendation for me, share below! (have you tried Ere Perez Mascara? I'd like to know if you've found something even better - although I doubt much can tear me away!)
