If you were stuck on an island and had only one makeup item, what would it be?  One of the popular makeup choices is mascara.  Being stuck on an island is no reason to sacrifice long, luscious lashes.

Most women wear mascara every day.  With it being used around the delicate eye area, it is important to be sure that you’re using a safe, healthy formula.  The run-of-the-mill mascara you find contains petro-chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde releasers, mercury, and phthalates.  These are all toxic ingredients that you do not want flaking into your eyes.

Mercury, in particular, is a neurotoxin that scientific studies have shown to cause damage to the nervous system.  Placing any amount of mercury near my eye is just too close for comfort.  Fortunately, there are cosmetic brands that have mascaras formulated without these harsh ingredients.

I have been on the hunt for a healthy mascara that works just as well as some of the conventional mascaras that I had grown accustomed to.  I recently purchased the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara and fell in love.

This mascara contains none of the before-mentioned toxic ingredients including sulfates, synthetic frangrance, GMOs, or triclosan .  It also is made with argan oil which is great for conditioning your lashes.

It comes with a huge applicator brush which is perfect for thickening lashes.  I applied two coats without any clumping.  It lasted my entire ten hour day without flaking, smearing, or smudging.  Best of all, I felt good about not having a potentially harmful product on my eyes.

Definitely, check out the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara .  You’ll be stuck on that island looking beautiful and feeling healthy.  For more healthy beauty tips visit Lilikoi Looks on Facebook.

Most people agree that the first thing they notice on another person is their eyes.  Thus the desire for long lucious eyelashes.  You want to beautifully frame the windows to your soul.  We’re moving closer to the hot humid summer weather and this is not the forecast that is mascara friendly.   There is an alternative to applying several coats of mascara that can run, clump, and leave you in need to periodically reapply. 

Eyelash extensions are the newest rave in the beauty world.  Extensions are bonded to each individual lash and the results last for the entire life of the lash (6-8 weeks).  This is also a great option for women who prefer not wearing makeup but still want to achieve a natural polished look everyday.  See what women who’ve experienced eyelash extensions have to say CLICK HERE.

You should probably have your I-Phone handy the next time you go shopping at your local beauty supply store.  This is so you can do your research as you shop.  It is important to buy products that are manufactured in USA inspected facilities.  Products made outside of the United States may or may not be produced with the same quality control as those produced in the United States.  This is especially important when it comes to the cosmetics you purchase, including eyelash extension adhesive.  Many products make their way to USA shelves deceptively marketed as American made.  Check out my new video on Youtube to learn details on where to go to do the proper research on your favorite cosmetics.  Be sure to subscribe to the Lilikoi Looks’ channel so that you don’t miss out on any of my upcoming videos.  Also, visit my website to stay up to date on all safe and healthy beauty tips.
