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 187 customers In Love with this Mascara for my sensitive eyes!
Kim, MS Gulf Coast from South MS
I LOVE this mascara. Burts Bees makes mascara; mind blown. My eyelashes have thinned out as I entered middle-aged. Black/Brown is hard to find. I do not like black mascara. This is a simple mascara for minimalist who do not like other heavy mascaras that plump with fibers or flake & clump. Excellent for my sensitive eyes (contact wearer, too). Easy to apply and easy to remove (not waterproof). Keeps my eyelashes soft while wearing.
Longer Lashes --it's true!
Geo645 from New Mexico
I live in a very dry climate and I think my lashes have grown dry and brittle. This "nourishing" mascara appears to moisturize, strengthen and actually allow my lashes to lengthen. Easy to apply and the results show a visible improvement. My lashes are longer and more pronounced. I like this mascara very much. (I have silver hair and you don't ask in your survey about that.)
Tried it and really like it
janiebug from Fort Wayne, IN
I used to use a volumizing, waterproof mascara. Now that I'm older, I've noticed I've lost a lot of eyelashes from waterproof mascaras, eyelash curlers, etc. So, I decided to try this mascara. At first, it wasn't bold enough for me but that's because I was used to seeing myself with heavier eye makeup. Once I got used to a bit more of the natural look, I'm thinking I actually look younger without the heavier mascara. Anyway, I really am liking this mascara. It gives my eyes a more natural look and yet, I look put-together. And, I absolutely am in love with the ease of removal with this mascara. So, I will continue to purchase it.
Did the formula Change
carolyn313 from indiana
I have had multiple tubes of this product but my most recent one is clumpy. I struggle getting it on because it won't go on smooth and I have to try to remove the clumps. At first i thought it was because it was a new tube but the more I use it the worse it has become. I wondered if the formula has changed. If so please change it back, I used to love this product but now I have to buy a new mascara.
Jist from San Antonio
I decided to try this mascara for its nourishing factor. After a few days of use, the wand to so clumped up with product I'm unable to use it. Extremely disappointed.
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.
jasmine from chandler, az
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.
