Review: CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mascara

Pros                                                                      Cons                          
-Effective, non-clumpy                                           -Rated 4 on EWG database (moderate hazard)
-Good price ($8)                                                   -One ingredient rated 6 (Benzyl Alcohol)
-Widely available                                                   -CoverGirl has not signed Compact for Safe Cosmetics
-Fewer synthetic ingredients than                            -Description says "a touch of nature" but doesn't specify
 other CoverGirl mascaras                                      
-Paraben free

Conclusion: CoverGirl is certainly not the greenest cosmetics company around, and their NatureLuxe line seems like greenwashing to me, but it is a great step for such a big player in the makeup industry. I like the way this product looks and feels, and though I probably will not buy it again, (I'm still on the hunt for a mascara without ANY synthetic ingredients) I'd recommend this product to green-beauty beginners.
