Most Helpful Positive Review AMAZING LASHES
I couldn't wait to use this product and I was not disappointed! My lashes were soft and moveable even with the mascara on!! It looked like they grew a mile after using the mascara as well! It doesn't have that chemical smell that often makes your eyes water when applying other mascara. The applicator is great for applying evenly... I'm OBSESSED! I only had to apply ONE coat! This needs to be in everyone's make up bag!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review 1st impression~ Not liking It
I thought I would try this brand for a switch up from a competitor formula.
First out of the tube, it has a peculiar odor. I do not know how long this has been in the store display.
I do not "pump" my brush in wand mascaras and did not care for the clumping. There was not much on the brush. It has a very light coverage. If you use a 'primer' (which I do) I would recommend it. My tinted primer actually has better coverage. Sometimes I will just use that.
The brush is a very good design, which I like. Some manufacturers have bulky or awkward wands that are difficult to handle.
It is definitely not waterproof & if caught in the rain you would be a mess! Comes off very easy with just water, no cleanser or soap...... that has both pros/cons. My eyes do tear at times & I also have 'dry eye' and now very particular about my mascara since eye surgery for a retina detachment because I had a sceral band sewn onto my eyeball to keep it intact. Absolute no rubbing the eye!! So I need a easy on/off product that has some sort of staying power.
I may finish this tube or not but I think I will stick with the competitors.
I also find some of the lip shimmers & lip sticks grainy.those are 'hit & miss'.
Reviewed by 182 customers Very natural-looking lashes
Adina from Detroit
This mascara wasn't for me. It gave very natural-looking lashes, and I prefer mascara that really gives a lot of volume and curl and gives the lashes a more "wow" look. However, if you like a more natural-looking lash, something that looks like your lashes but a darker and a little longer, then this could be the mascara for you. The pros are that it doesn't flake or smudge, and it has decent longevity for a non-waterproof mascara.

I feel like I have to keep putting layers of it on before it actually does anything. By that point, it seems like the only thing it does is get on my eyelids.
Kaerze from Phoenix, Az
This is the first time ever I've left a one star review. I was excited to find that Burts made makeup, and read it was for sensitive eyes. 15 minutes after applying, my eyes began to itch and water. I dabbed my eyes gently with a tissue, and it came off with my tears. I am left with swollen, red eyelids.
Few years and love it.
Aniak2205 from New York, NY
I think this is about 2,5 years I've been using Burts Bees mascara and so far I love it.
I change my mascara often (as you suppose to buy most people are not aware). I love also L'Oréal but it's not "clean". The only reason is because I need waterproof mascara while swimming. I wish Burts bees would create one.
I've tried many bare mineral, maybeline, Pacifica just to name few. Oh and the worst experience I had with Chinese mascara (has kind of butterfly/heart shape that's been promoted allover Facebook. That one is so far the worst! Got insane allergy reaction. Anyways Burts looks the most natural and is almost waterproof! Easy to remove too.
PilatesMama from Michigan
It barely looks like I have mascara on when wearing this. I purchased it because it's "clean beauty" but will not buy it again. I did not like the consistency or how it applies. It seems to go on thick or like the bottle is empty and I cannot get any on.
Surprised by how much I like this
MLF from Minneapolis, MN
I've tried many natural mascaras with good & bad results. Some I could not wear on my lower lashes because they smeared. This stays on my lashes & is very natural looking. Not gloppy, adds just enough color to look like my lashes but better. I will buy this again.
Love the brown/black color
Lisa L from Dahlonega, GA
Since this color is brown/black it can be used every day and not look like you have heavy makeup on.
Clumps, no fun.
Jamie2021 from Central PA
I know I love your lotions, so I thought I'd try your make-up. I bought the shimmering nudes eye shadow trio (which I love) and your black brown moisturizing mascara. Unfortunately, the mascara clumps and I need a dry mascara brush to try and get through it. It doesn't usually work and I am left with little clumps and it's very uncomfortable. It's very thick and sticky.
Amazing for Natural Looks
Honeybees33 from Louisiana
I realllllllly love this mascara!! I love makeup, but I usually hate how it feels...not the case with this mascara! It looks and feels so natural, but it still does what it's supposed to :) And not that smell is important, but I really like the smell of the beeswax or whatever it is. It's just really good!
Best Mascara for extremely sensitive eyes!!!
Supergirl95 from Moncton, NB
I've been looking for a good mascara for over 3 years now since I started wearing makeup. I have very sensitive skin and eyes and every mascara I've tried I had to remove it after a few hours because it would irritate my eyes like crazy. I'm also very fair-skinned so I can't wear black mascara. This is the very first mascara I've found that doesn't irritate my eyes and I can wear it all day at work which is 8 hours + and I actually forget I have it on!! I've finally been able to start wearing makeup now and feel beautiful wearing it!! I will be buying this mascara from now on!!!! :)
Ends up every where
Gen from Fargo
I wanted to love this, because I would rather use natural products, but it immediately makes your lashes look clumpy and black specs fall under your eye as soon as it dries. :(
Clumps - very disappointing!
Carolann from Calabasas, CA
I was disappointed when I first used this mascara, because, I was hoping it would be better than other brands. It clumped really badly upon my first use, I had to use an eyelash comb to take out the thick clumps. I might try to return the product.
YLo from Phoenix
I love Burt's Bees products and thought I'd give the mascara a try, bad product. Mascara smears easily and once it gets into the eyes it stings. Waste of my money.
The best natural mascara for sensitive eyes
Mmm92 from Atlanta
I LOVE this mascara. It is more natural looking but I love that. Sort of a your lashes but better. It separates them really and creates some length and a little bit of volume. You have to curl your lashes really well before application because this mascara does not help with curling them. It's holds up all day, doesn't flake or smudge, but comes off easily when I need to take it off. I have very sensitive eyes. I've tried tons of mascaras. Even expensive ones and this one is my favorite. I will continue to purchase this!!!
Not clumpy at all.
Mimi Lillie from West Michigan
This is a very nice mascara if being waterproof is not important to you. I found it to kinda soothing.
New life from Knoxville
I love the Burt's bee products! I just wish the mascara was waterproof.
Not too much
Em the Femme from Philly
I really like it, it doesn't look super dramatic
Fine enough - makes my eyes water
Eden from Los Angeles
This is a fine enough mascara. The color is really great, it's hard to find a nice brown mascara. However, whenever I use this my eyes water like crazy. I won't be buying it again
Lovely mascara for a natural look
L from Georgia
I've been using this product for a while now, and I love it! If you are going for a more natural, minimal makeup, everyday look, this mascara is for you! The formula spreads evenly on the lashes without clumping. It lengthens and thickens the lashes just enough to enhance them and make them still look like they are your own lashes. Also, the name of the product is true to the product itself, since after wearing the mascara, my lashes feel nourished and unharmed. Sometimes, I've applied this mascara not for looks but just to nourish my lashes! The only thing (and this goes for almost any mascara), is that you have to make sure to close the cap very tightly, or else the product will dry out and become flaky when applied. Also, the wand can be a bit harsh, so be careful not to poke your eye with it, because it hurts! Other than that, fabulous product!
Lainey from Chilliwack
I have used the lip stick for years! Ilove it. I thought I would try the mascara. I was sadly disappointed. It was dry and flaky.
Better than expected
Jovana from Tempe, AZ
I didn't know this brand made mascara so I wanted to try it. It actually works really well takes a little bit longer than other mascaras to dry but not like maybe 15 seconds or so but it works great. The price is great for this amazing product
Mc from USA
I've used two tubes of this and I just keep repurchasing. I have naturally fairly long and curled eyelashes. I was typically only using a benefit mascara that was water proof and high impact but I found that wearing that everyday was damaging my eyelashes. So now I alternate between a water-proof, crazy-length mascara and this mascara and my eyelashes are so grateful! This stuff still looks great and holds up great for a day of wear, but without damaging my lashes. I like the formula and the brush and haven't had problems getting it to look just perfect. I will keep buying!
BEST NATURAL MASCARA!!!
Ne1012 from undisclosed
I have been searching and searching for a natural mascara that I like. I have tried all kinds of natural and organic brands at different price points, but this mascara is by far the best natural mascara! It applies well, doesn't clump or flake, and lasts all day. It also doesn't bother my eyes as some mascaras cause my eyes to burn. I love the consistency as well and I'm so happy it isn't sticky. I could go on and on, but this mascara is just amazing! Love the price point and have already used multiple tubes of this fantastic mascara!!! Great job Burt's Bees!!!
Comes off so easily yet holds through tears!
SusieQxo from Lancaster, PA
This is my first time ever purchasing a brown mascara and I would say that I'm absolutely in love with it. I am slightly on the fairer side with darker hair and I feel like it looks so natural on me. I was worried to change my mascara since I was used to a tubing mascara. However, this comes off much easier than even tubing mascara for me. With that said, I have cried pretty intensely with this mascara on and it did not budge. Same with the Burt's Bees foundation/powder/blush. I find that crazy since how natural everything is. The only thing I'll comment on is that when I take it off if it gets in my eyes it does burn a little bit. But I have been more careful recently and do not have that problem! :)
Love Applicator Wand; Not Too Thick
srwatkin from Seattle, WA
I came here to leave a review about how much I loved the lightness of the applicator wand, as well as the chunk-free consistency of the product itself. To my surprise several people down graded the mascara because they felt the wand was cheap and did not apply enough liquid to the lash. I can't say I feel the same. This is the first mascara I felt did an even application without applying to thick a coat, and the want was so light and well spaced it further reduced the risk of clumping up. I have never had such a smooth experience with mascara, the look is also more natural. I have tried way more expensive brands that didn't do half as good a job. Will buy again!
