Well, vegaLASH, you caught my attention.
I tend to ignore ads on Instagram, but as an Asian woman who is hypersensitive about her eyelashes (or lack thereof), this ad promoting a 100% vegan mascara that promises longer-looking lashes is intriguing. I had to know more.
The sample pack that was promoted on Instagram was offered for free. All I had to pay was $3 shipping. This trial pack includes the vegaLASH Volumizing Mascara, oil-free makeup remover, and a cute makeup bag. A girl like me who likes to be organized can always use a cute makeup bag…
vegaLASH also offers a few other products including a vegaLASH and vegaBROW volumizing serums, an advanced lash system, and a vegaLASH multi-tasking primer. All their products are cruelty free, gluten free (mascara has gluten in it?!), and 100% vegan with natural ingredients sourced from the rainforests of South America and Asia.
First Reaction to the vegaLASH Volumizing Mascara
First off, I was, ummmm, slightly amused by the shape of the brush. I blame the nasty part of my mind, ok?!? The brush shape actually does help with applying the mascara to every single eyelash, and my eyelashes need as much product as possible.
Before and After
Here’s what my eyelashes look like with and without the mascara…
Yes, it does look like I actually have long(ish) eyelashes. I use an eyelash curler first and then apply two coats of the mascara. Because my eyelashes are so straight, I have to curl them between coats, which is not recommended. I just curl very lightly so my eyelashes don’t stick to the curler.
What I do love about the vegaLASH mascara is that it doesn’t give me raccoon eyes halfway through the day.
I only used the makeup remover once because as many of you know, “Less is better” is my mantra when it comes to my beauty routine. I’d rather have a face wash that does double duty and can take off my mascara.
vegaLASH does offer one of those subscription programs in which they auto-replenish products every two months for a price of $59.95. If you purchase either one of the serums directly from the site without signing up for the subscription, you’ll pay $79.95. The mascara costs $32.00, which is a little pricey for me. I checked around for other vegan mascaras on the market and the average price is around $20.
I really like the results of the vegaLASH mascara and that it is has natural ingredients. The only thing that prevents me from purchasing this again is price, which is not that bad, but if I can get a comparable mascara for a better price, then that would be better. I will have to try other vegan mascaras to compare and see if the price is worth it.
