Customer Feedback:

"... goes on nice, dries quickly, isn't clumpy and it does a shockingly awesome job of thickening and lengthening my lashes...."

"... It doesn't flake and it doesn't make my lashes feel "crunchy" either. I LOVE IT!...."

"...dries quickly, keeps my lashes curled, and looks natural...."

"...smelled a bit off putting and definitely was not nice. It clumped and made my eyelashes look like caterpillars...."

"...Aside from making my lashes darker, this mascara didn't do too much for me (but then again it doesn't claim to). It does look very natural, but there was flaking and smudging for me...."

Our Final Assessment:

Tarte Lash Hugger Ecco-Friendly Natural Mascara gets good reviews from users - about 90% positive. However, it is not a 100% natural product, and contains several "iffy" chemical ingredients. It does get a borderline rating of 4 in the EWG Cosmetics Safety Database, which is just within our range of recommendation. Cost is average for an all-natural mascara, and based on all factors, we give it an overall rating of 8 for the time being.
