Lola Lash Natural Mascara Review

The following is an honest review in exchange for a product(s) of my choice. This post contains affiliate links.

I recently discovered Abe's Market and was excited at the prospect of browsing their natural and organic products, particularly their Natural Makeup & Natural Cosmetics. As I'm in the journey of cutting chemicals out of my life, I knew right away I wanted to try their mascara when I was given the chance to go on a bit of a shopping spree in exchange for an honest review.

Lola Lash Mascara by Antonym was the only complimentary option, so I went with it even though the only color available was black and I generally wear dark brown or brown/black mascara. 

Initial observations: While the ingredients list is not short and contains some long words that I don't know, it is, however, free of the major chemical offenders, like those listed here. So that's definitely a step in the right direction.

Also, the wand is curved, which I'm not used to, but it still worked well.

I finally got to test it out for a date with Daniel, and I do like how it looks.

I've been using Covergirl forever now, most recently Lashblast Fusion, in brown/black. So how do they compare?


The Lola Lash mascara is clearly black, and the Covergirl is clearly not. Lola Lash seems to focus more on length, while the Covergirl Fusion focuses more on volume, but the difference is very slight.

All in all, I really have only two complaints: I wish the Lola Lash was dark brown instead of black; then I would really love it. And also, while I am wanting to use chemical-free makeup, I'm not really wanting to pay quite so much for mascara. So it's a choice between affordable, chemical-filled options or not-really-affordable natural options. Considering how rarely I even go anywhere and need to put on makeup, the cost would probably be worth it in my case, since one tube will last me so long.

There are also a few much more affordable options that are worth looking into, from both Abe's Market and elsewhere, which I plan to explore before actually purchasing another tube of this particular mascara.

Abe's Market has all kinds of natural makeup options that you should totally take a look at if you're also trying to remove chemicals from your life. If you do try some of their Natural Makeup & Natural Cosmetics, please let me know what you think!

  1. I still can't get comfortable with the curved lash brushes! I mean, it's taken me almost 20 years to finally use an eyelash curler!

    I've tried mascaras over the years and nothing ever tops my old favorite, Lancome Definicils. I've been using it forever. I hope it never gets discontinued!


    1. I was surprised at how okay I was with using it! Curved does make sense if you think about it, yet the usual ones are straight. I have yet to try eyelash curlers though!

  2. I love how you did the side by side (eye by eye, haha) comparison! I sometimes use LashBlast and other times use Clinique mascara (love their stuff).
