Best Cruelty Free Mascaras

It’s time for another Beauty Top Tens! This time I’m sharing my Top 10 Best Cruelty Free Mascaras. I’ve rounded up 10 of the best cruelty free mascaras for you to to check out. So if you’re looking for a new mascara, I’ve got one for you!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

1. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – $23
This is my hands down favorite mascara right now. I’m on my third tube since it came out. It’s amazing for my lashes. I apply it using a metal lash comb so that I don’t get clumps. The formula is seriously volumizing and long wearing. See my review. If you’re not prone to clumpy lashes like I can, you can achieve some really amazing results in two or three coats. I’m happy with what I can do in one coat!

Wearing Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara

2. Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara – $20
I love the formula and brush on this mascara. The bristles are made in such a way that you can use the tip to get your inner lashes.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara

3.  Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara – $23
I got this mascara in my Tarte Stop & Stare Kit and really like it! It’s ultra black and lengthens my lashes. It’s also supposed to curl lashes. It doesn’t flake or smudge off. The brush is really cool. One side is short and dense and the other is longer.

Milani Runway Lashes Mascara

4. Milani Runway Lashes – $4.99
This budget friendly option is a great volumizing mascara.

Nyx Doll Eye Mascara

5. Nyx Doll Eye Mascara – $9.50
The Nyx Doll Eye Mascara has been my favorite of all the Nyx Mascaras due to its formula and brush shape. It works really well for me.

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara

6. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara – $18
I really love the brush on this mascara! as it works well to separate lashes. The formula is nice and long wearing and doesn’t flake.

Buxom Lash Mascara

7. Buxom Lash Mascara – $19
This is a great volumizing mascara.

Ardench Inn PUNKER Unrivaled Volume & Curl Lash Wax

8. Ardency Inn PUNKER Unrivaled Volume & Curl Lash Wax – $24
This mascara has such a unique formula and it’s inspired by hair pomades. It doesn’t flake and it’s not supposed to smudge. It’s a curling mascara.

Illamasqua Masquara

9. Illamasqua Masquara – $23
I’ve heard many bloggers across the pond rave about the Illamasqua’s do-it-all mascara.

Inglot Long and Curly Mascara

10. Inglot Long and Curly Mascara – $10
I’ve had several bloggers tell me that this is an amazing mascara that flys under the radar. It’s water resistant, quick drying and long lasting.

What are your picks for the best cruelty free mascaras?  Any I need to try?

      Now I have a ton more mascaras to add to my “try it” list! The Better than sex mascara is getting mentioned a lot! I hate the name but I want big false looking lashes. I might need to try this!

      • Chia-Yi Liu

        surely the pretty packaging makes up for the name? BTS is my boyfriend’s favorite mascara on me

    • AllLacqueredUp

      I’ve never heard of that Punker mascara before. Very interesting concept. I’ll have to check it out.

      EEP. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THESE. CF Mascara Hunting has truly been the bane of my makeup existence.

    • Beauty411

      I had no idea all these brands were CF! I love UD Big Fatty and Buxom Mascaras, too. So good!

    • Peaches & Pearls

      I love the Urban Decay one! One of my other favorites is from 100% Pure. Their black tea one is lovely for length!

      Big props to Too Faced Better Than Sex- though I sure hate the name :| I do love the brush and want to try it with other formulas.

      Another for Better Than Sex!!! My step sis bought the Inglot one at IMATS last year and her lashes looked so amazing!

    • marciaf

      Of all your choices I need the Too Faced. I’m sorry I forgot to put Tarte on my list since I love all of their mascaras that I’ve tried.

      Doh! I forgot about Buxom–it’s great!

      I actually have Buxom Lash mascara and I absolutely love the Volume it provides and I also have Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes instead of the Flashes one because it gives me a lot of length.

        Lots of love for Tarte :)

      Courtney, any suggestions for waterproof ones? I think Light’s Camera Splashes is okay – it’s fine. I don’t like Buxom’s waterproof formula, and Flawless Definition is good, but I hate the brush. Any other ones you can think of? I don’t know of any other waterproof cruelty free ones.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Actually, what I prefer to do is take my favorite mascara and then use Anastasia Lash Genius waterproof top coat on it.

    • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

      Possibly! Try putting a tiny bit of Anastasia Lash genius on the tips

    • Julie Levine

      The Milani Runway Lashes comes out much too goopy and clumpy. I like the formula, but SO much product comes out on the brush, the clumps can’t be avoided. Even after close to 4 months, it’s still the same.They have another formula called Grandissimo Lashes that I like better, however, the brush is HUGE, I prefer a smaller brush. I’ve got the Bare Minerals and Doll Eye mascara on the way – hopefully one of those will be better.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I’ve been using Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and the new Urban Decay Perversion mascara more than anything else. The results I get are pretty amazing.

    • Julie Levine

      I just tried the Doll Eye mascara and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I bought the long lash formula. It goes on like a dream, not a clump in sight. It wore amazingly well in 115 degree heat. I was out running errands all day and the mascara had great staying power, no flaking at all. I’m a happy girl. Thanks SO much for your recommendation.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You’re very welcome! Right now I’m obsessed with the UD Perversion mascara! Also, don’t forget that you can use Anastasia Lash Genius to waterproof any mascara for you :)
