The lovely people at INIKA don't compromise on quality or performance. Better still, as far as I'm concerned, their products are 100% naturally derived and cruelty free. None are tested on animals or contain ingredients which are a result of animal cruelty. They sent me samples of their Bold Lash Vegan Mascara, Curvy Lash Vegan Masacara and The Mascara, which I was happy to test.
Bold Lash Vegan Mascara
Wow, dramatic! This deeply pigmented formula glides on smoothly, instantly amplifying lashes by coating every one with glossy black pigment. Even for those with sparser lashes this helps give a voluminous appearance AND it protects lashes too while the large brush separates and coats individual lashes. It contains certified organic Magnolia Bark, Vitamin E and Sunflower Oil. (£27)
Curvy Lash Vegan Mascara
With a plant-based, smudge-proof formula and a purpose-built curling wand, this mascara coats every lash evenly. Enriched with certified organic Carnauba Wax and Vitamin E, this curling mascara does as it says and flares out lashes holding them in place with a deep dose of pigment. (£25)
Did you know, INIKA'S organic make-up range has won a plethora of awards - over 35 in total - for product excellence and innovation, beating big name brands in open categories. If you are eco-conscious, it makes sense to choose INIKA for 100% natural, ethical cosmetics.
All INIKA products are 100% naturally derived, Certified Vegan & Cruelty Free
