I had heard about the brand Ilia Beauty and have always wanted to get my hands on one of there products and as I just ran out of my Glossier mascara ( Review Here) I decided to try there Ilia Limitless lash mascara.
I’m going cleaner with my makeup so I thought I would try a clean mascara and I had heard good things about the Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara though the price gave me pause, £26 for 8 grams of product from Naturismo.
I don’t partially like paying too much on my mascaras as you need to get rid of them every 3 months, regardless if you have any product left but I use mascara basically every day and it is going very near my eyeball so I want good ingredients which is why in the end I decided to buy this product.
The packaging is a usual mascara plastic tube in a metallic white gold colour with Ilia branding on the side, so very minimal and sleek. I was a little unsure on the wand, its plastic and dual-sided with one side a long brush which is supposed to lengthen and the other short side to build volume.
Now this Ilia Limitless lash mascara is 25% Organic, 99% Natural, Gluten-free and of course Cruelty-Free but is not Vegan as it contains Beeswax but I was willing to pay more for this mascara because of the cleaner ingredients (full list here)
I am lucky enough to have naturally long black lashes so I have a good base for Mascara but I do want it to be smudge-proof, water-resistant and I like voluminous lashes but not too clumpy.
The first time I applied this Ilia Limitless lash mascara I was a little confused about the brush but got the hang of it quickly.
Just use the smaller brush side first to make more volume and coat each lash I do about 2-3 layers for an every day look then flipping it over and doing one more layer with the long brush side to separate your lashes, I don’t think this mascara is any good for any more layers of mascara so if you like putting 6 layers on this mascara won’t do that very well.
I have used this Mascara for about a month and a half and I do think it lasts all day and keeps your lashes lifted with no smudging throughout the day I haven’t tested it with water like if it’s pouring down with rain yet but I have cried at a film and the mascara was still in place not giving me panda eyes.
I’m not the best at taking my mascara off at night ( I know its bad ) but when I do it comes off alright not really easy but you don’t have to scrub at your eyes either.
The formula is very good and I do think it comes out the perfect black colour and coats easily.
Overall I really like this mascara and I will be repurchasing if you love really dramatic spidery lashes you won’t like this mascara but for everyone else, I would definitely recommend trying this out also I am so happy that this is a Clean Beauty Product and that it actually works well! Do you have any Clean Beauty Mascaras? Please tell me in the comments. Thanks for reading Xxx
