One of the most difficult natural cosmetics to find (and like) is mascara.  I have been on the hunt for a more wholesome formula (sans parabens) for the longest time.  I tried natural formulations from Physician’s Formula Organic Wear, Tarte, Benefit, Josie Maran, to other bareMineral mascaras.  They were not able to lengthen, volumize and sustain the promise of being flake-free.  Recently, while on the bareescentuals site, I decided to purchase bareMinerals Lash Domination ($18 US/) part of the “Your Perfect Picks” Eye Kit ($39 US) with the high hopes that this mascara maybe “the one”.  According to the Bareescentual website Lash Domination is a 10-1 mascara that:

  • Volumizes
  • Lengthens
  • Thickens
  • Separates
  • Lifts
  • All-day wear
  • Mineral fortified
  • Resists clumps
  • Fights flakes
  • Smudge-resistant

 The Pros of bareMinerals Lash Domination:

  1. Formulated without parabens.
  2. The wand is spiral, rubberized and large.  Designed to catch and coat every lash evenly and efficiently.
  3. The formula is dry and very black.
  4. Lash Domination lengthens beautifully while providing volume (more so than Mary Kay Lash Love).
  5. LD lasted well throughout the day with minimal flaking by the tenth hour.
  6. My lashes did not feel stiff or look clumpy.
  7. The wand separates and lifts the lashes with each additional coat.
  8. Layers nicely and does not give the dreaded spidery look.
  9. Easily removable at night without any harsh tugging of the lashes.
  10. Lash Domination Mascara is offered in kits (for a better value) on the bareesscentuals website.

The Cons of bareMinerals Lash Domination:

  1. The formula did seem to coagulate after one week’s use.  It has since regulated itself and returned to its original consistency.
  2. The wand maybe too big for someone with hooded eyes or shorter lashes.
  3. The silver packaging does not look elegant or worthy of an $18 price tag (sorry..I like what I like).
  4. Slight flaking by the brow bone by the tenth hour of wear (if your lashes are shorter, this may not be an issue).
  5. Slight smudging if a heavier moisturizer or creamy concealer is used on the under eye area.

The rest of the items in the kit were absolutely stellar and I will review them separately.  My main reason for obtaining the kit was the mascara, therefore, I wanted to dedicate a post specifically to Lash Domination.  I prefer bareMinerals Lash Domination to Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening (reviewed here) and Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara because of the more natural formula, accessibility, and results.

bareMinerals Lash Domination is sold at Sephora, Nordstrom,, Macy’s, and etc..

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you tell bareminerals Lash Domination is worthy of a repurchase. The more natural formula is quite appealing to my needs.  While in Nordstrom the other day, the sales associate asked, “My goodness what mascara are you wearing?  Your lashes are insanely long.”  When I told her it was Lash Domination, she could not believe the results.  Another customer was so impressed with the results on me, she bought a tube on the spot.  Good deed done!  What is your favorite mascara?  Better yet, will you be trying Lash Domination?  Be well and stay safe.
