Eye of Horus Mascara Review


When I was a little girl I would stand next to my mum, her sitting infront of her dressing table and me watching in awe as she would put 'her face on,' as we call it.
 Every now and then she would turn to me and brush a bit of mascara on to my eyelash tips....and oooh the excitement! 
Ever since then, I've loved makeup, trying out all kinds of different products, colours and gadgets, and yes I was that girl at highschool who wore eyeliner and mascara! 

Over the years, I've been more aware of the ingredients in my cosmetics as I am in my skincare.....especially as with my love of eyeliner and mascara I worry about what I apply so close to my eyes.

So when the chance came up to review a mascara that uses natural ingredients, I grabbed the opportunity to put it through its paces...as I am yet to find a natural one that can last the day.

Introducing the Eye of Horus Mascara.....


Formulated in the style of the Ancient Egyptians, its been made with natural waxes of Carnauba, Candelia, Ricebran, Beeswax and Moringa Oil.
And it was the Moringa Oil that really caught my eye, as Mike and I have been reading alot about this miracle tree from which the oil comes from (along with a long list of many other uses ).....it has been nick named the multi vitamin tree.. and we have just planted our first seeds! 
In the Eye of Horus Mascara the Moringa Oil helps condition and strengthen your lashes helping them grow.....so a mascara that gives you pretty lashes and nourishes them at the same time has got to be a Win Win!

This week I decided to put it through its paces.
On Tuesday my day was jam packed with appointments, driving for hours here and there between them. One which included a Osteopath appointment... I thought this would be a great way to test its smudgeproof ability! As that's the one place where my makeup will always smudge, lying face down on that masseuses table.

So here's me first thing in the morning, fresh and ready to start my day.....lashes looking great and the mascara went on with ease and without any clumps.


And now many hours later, here I am, at last light, in need of a Pimm's and about to crash out on the couch.....my eyes are looking weary from all that driving,  but my mascara still looks just as lucious as it was in the morning.


Infact almost all of my eye makeup had sweated away, apart from the mascara.

 
But it was that night, that I was truly astonished....as they claim that you can remove the mascara with just warm water to dissolve the waxes.
A by golly it worked!! Not a trace left!  I even showed Mike 
( though he didn't share the same ethusiasm ) 
It truly takes the prize for the best mascara I've ever used, as I really dislike using cleanser or make remover on my eyes, and now I don't need to.

Lucious dark thick lashes...
 no clumps 
 lasts the day
nourishes
natural and paraben free
and washes away without a trace.

And at at an affordable mid range price too!

So I'm thinking with my birthday coming up soon, I should get myself a new eyeliner and maybe a couple new eyeshadows.....
and Mike complains I'm hard to buy for! Pffft!
I've just made it easy....hint hint ;))

I am intrigued, on the rare occasions that I wear makeup, I have found that mascara irritates my eyes and then I end up smearing it from rubbing. I'm going to check them out, thanks for the review. By the way, girl, you have impossibly perfect eyebrows.

I'm reviewing this mascara too, and I totally agree with you! Easily the best mascara I've ever used (not that I'm an expert here), and LOVE that it's all natural. Definitely a winner for me.

I love this! I've been thinking the exact same thing lately, IS there a mascara that has natural ingredients and can do what a mascara is supposed to do? I will have to try it. And by the way, your eye shots are amazing!
