Best Paraben-Free Mascara - bareMinerals Flawless Definition

I've tried many a natural mascara in my day - and most are aweful. You have to apply 10 coats just to get a bit of color and then the whole effort  is usually wasted 30 minutes anyhow when the stuff is smudged or flaking down your face. Companies like Lancome and Mabeline know how to rock the eyelash market, but they use chemicals to extend and darken those lush lashes so alas...I have bid them farewell (sniff sniff). I had all but given up on finding a natural alternative that could provide true volume and definition when I came across Flawless Definition by bareMinerals - a paraben-free, ALMOST all-natural mascara that uses nature's minerals and no harsh ingredients to create a thicking and extending mascara that actually contends with the best chemical department store brands out there. At $18 a bottle - it is not cheap, but then neither are those toxic department store brands.

Why is it important to use paraben-free mascara? Because parabens - a synthetic preservative found in many cosmetics, beauty products and personal hygene items - can mimic hormones in the human body and disrupt the endocrine system. Research has shown that this disruption has been linked to cancer and early puberty. Why risk cancer in the name of beauty - when there is an awesome alternative: bareMinerals Flawless Definition. You can pick up Flawless Definition mascara online or at a bareMinerals store near you.
