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?

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.
