I always admire women with long and full lashes. They can put just a little but mascara and they are good to go. I, on the other hand, have short straight lashes. What more could i wish for 😀 So i want my mascara to lenghten my lashes, make them more full and curl them (in the best case scenario) And also last all day of course 😉 My favourite mascara that does all of this is Volumising mascara by Green People, but tube of this dries kinda quickly.
Not that long ago, 100% Pure came with new maracuja mascara. Black shade is called Black tea, and yes, you guessed it, it has its black colour thanks to the leaves of black tea. Great, right? Thus mascara is full of natural extracts and has beautiful packaging. I ma always super excited when i order new goodies by this brand, they are so gorgeous!
Ingredients (for shade Black tea)
It is always pleasure to read ingredient list on 100% Pure products. Many lovely ingredients in here! No hard to pronounce chemicals, so you don´t have to waste your time searching for their meanings. One ingredient that is kinda questionable is japanese honeysuckle, which molecular structure is similar to parabens.
Formulation of this mascara is enriched with maracuja oil, which hydrates and strenghtens your lashes. And of course is full of antioxidants. Love at first sight isn´t it ? 😉

Well…it was not love at first use 😀 For a few first uses it did nothing for my lashes. Efect was not visible and i had to use three coats. But then i finally used my lash curler and voila! My lashes looked so much better! This mascara keeps them curled all day, gives them lenght and little bit of volume. Sometimes i can get away with as little as one coat. So don´t throw away your mascara even if it doesn´t work that well at first 😉To sum it up:
- great ingredients
- suitable for sensitive eyes
- keeps your lashes curled (but use your lash curler first)
- gives little bit of volume
- doesn´t fall of
- lasts all day (but it is not waterproof, doesn´t survive sweaty workout that well)
This 100% Pure mascara has interesting smell. To me it smells like very sweet blackberry sirup. Some people described the smell like bad wine or olive oil 😀 But don´t worry, you won´t smell it after application. The tube is so beautiful! Gorgeous pinky – metal colour with small flowers. It looks and feels luxurious. Brush on this is ok, i am not super excited, but works well. The only issue i have with this brush is that is sometimes takes too much of a products, so you have to wipe it before use. Otherwise you with end up with clumpy lashes. Overall, i am quite happy with this maracuja mascara! I am happy i gave it a chance after initial disappointment.
Price: 23.58 €/ 7 ml
