It seems that I’ve been in luck finding great makeup products lately, because every single one that I’ve tried these last few weeks have become my favorite so far. Take for example this Boho Volume & Green mascara, which impressed me from the first use. Boho is French natural beauty brand (its products, however, are made in Italy!), which advocates slow beauty. All of their products are 100% or 99% natural, however, I wish the products would contain more certified organic ingredients, since this mascara has only 5%.
BOHO VOLUME & GREEN MASCARA in BLACK 6ml / approx. £10 (sadly, not available in the US)
Boho mascara comes in a simple, green packaging, which screams “I am natural”. It has a wooden / bamboo look, but it’s actually made from recyclable cardboard material that makes it light to carry around even in your purse. The mascara has a very dense wand with short bristles, which surprised me by doing a really good job and separating my lashes. The formula was a bit runny for the first few days (aren’t they all, though?), but after a few uses it became normal – not too thick, not too runny – and very easy to apply.
This Volume & Green mascara keeps its promises and gives plenty of volume. It gives some length, too. However, because its bristles are so short and dense, don’t expect any curl with this mascara. I’ve tried, but ended up with mascara stains all over my eyelids. If your lashes need curling as much as mine do, make sure you do that before application.
This is a water-based mascara, and even though it stays in place pretty much all day, a single drop of water makes it smudgy. So swimming and dancing in the rain are not the activities you should go for when wearing this particular mascara. This has its own benefits, because the mascara is pretty easy to wash off.
