Top 3 Cruelty Free Mascaras

As you may know, I am trying to switch all my makeup to cruelty free brands (still struggling with foundation so hit me up with your faves for dry skin). That has meant saying goodbye to the Maybelline mascaras I used to swear by. I am blessed with long lashes so I tend to pick mascaras that offer all the volume. I also used to only use brands on the cheaper end of the spectrum. However, I have recently been sucked into higher end mascaras and it kills me a little bit but they are just so damn good. So these are my top 3 cruelty free mascaras. I pretty much just rotate between these 3.

Top 3 Cruelty Free Mascaras
This is hands down my favourite ever mascara. I would never normally pay this much for a mascara but I got it in a Boots star gift at Christmas and now I am hooked. It gives me soo much volume and just makes my lashes look incredible. I always get compliments on my lashes when I wear this. It has also lasted me way longer than you are supposed to use a mascara for. If you want volume and lashes as dark as my soul then you need this mascara in your life. It has quite a big wand which I adore but this might be an issue if you have smaller eyes. 

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

I got this in an amazing bundle deal which I wrote about here. Another price I wouldn't normally pay for a mascara but the deal gave me a chance to try it. I wasn't that impressed with it to start with. It was such a wet formula and I just ended up getting it everywhere. Now that I've had it a while and it's dried out a bit I love it. It's kind of similar to the Smashbox one and I definitely get the hype. This one has a smaller wand though so if you struggle with the Smashbox one then this may be the mascara for you. Smashbox is still bae (do people still say that?) but tarte is a close second.

Now, this is more the price I pay for a mascara although I don't think I will ever be able to give up my full exposure. I picked this up on a whim and I love it. The wand isn't one I would normally go for because I'm not a massive fan of the tiny plastic ones. They scare me and I tend to poke out my eyeballs. However, this wand gets every lash and lengthens them beautifully. It also gives pretty good volume. For a fiver it is amazing.

So I think it's safe to say Smashbox has my heart and if I could only use one mascara for the rest of my life it would be Full Exposure. However, I do still love the other two. What are your go-to cruelty-free mascaras?
