Accepted Solution
The right mascara for the minimum look, sensitive preferred

I would like to find a mascara I can stand to use on a semi-regular basis. I used to wear contact lenses and there simply was NO mascara that didn't irritate my eyes. Now I wear glasses (my allergies got too bad for the contacts), but I still have the habit of fooling with my eyes a lot, and will sometimes forget I have the mascara on. I need something that - I don't necessarily want huge long lashes, bc mine are already way long. I just need to tint them darker to show up better. And NOT irritate my eyes. I wore L'Oreal for awhile and liked it reasonably well, but it had a fragrance that drove my eyes nuts. So no flakes, no fibers, no scents. Recommendations, please?

Hi alienchangeling, 


Have you tried the Blinc Kiss Me Mascara? It's great for sensitive eyes (like mine) and it puts tiny tubes of product on your lashes that won't smear, smudge or run while giving you gorgeous lush lashes in an easy to wear formula.



You may even like the Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara which defines your lashes with a full shiny coat for extra definition in a lightweight and gentle formulation.

I had a sample of a Tarte mascara once. Sorry I don't recall which one, but it was very,very natural. It didn't clump and just darkened and slightly lengthened my lashes. They are natural as well, which should help with the irritation. I think it may have been the Lights, Camera one, but I am not positive.

If you want something for sensitive eyes, try Tarte.


I wear contacts as well and I love Urban Decay's Lush Lash Mascara. It's long wearing but easy to remove. Whenever I have to add solution/eye drops I can do so without having mascara instantly running down my cheeks. The formula is very "clean" on the lashes so it's not a super thick or chunky formula. The brush is amazing to really comb through and get separation and definition to the lashes too.


I use that one on its own or as a layering mascara when I want a more dramatic look, and never have I had an issues with clumps.

I also wear glasses and have allergies. One of my favorite mascaras and the one I am using now is Diorshow Waterproof. I teach preschool and it lasts all day but doesn't look heavy.  It just makes my eyelashes stand out and be seen!  Good luck.
