Review: DeVita absolute LENGTHS mascara

DeVita absolute Lengths mascara is a cruelty free, natural, gluten free mascara. In my practice, I am always searching for options for a wide variety of clients, including animal lovers, divas, and the occasional fashion slasher film. (Yeah, you read that right.)

I used this mascara for super soft, natural looks on models Ashley Smith and Meki Saldana for Galore Magazine’s Run, Catch, Kill. The formula tends toward the drier side as many of the natural and cruelty free mascaras do, however it didn’t flake or run even after scenes where we submerged a cold but sporting Ashley in a lake on location in Vermont. It wasn’t spectacularly black, but it did have a soft black/brownish black matte finish that looks very natural on camera. I have used this mascara for men’s grooming as well to enhance the model’s eyes in a very subtle way. The wand is lovely for separating lashes for personal use (what, we have to buy two of everything, don’t look at me like that!) but so thin it’s hard to use as an artist since only a few disposable mascara wands will fit down the slim barrel. For personal use, I feel like I had a hard time getting the wand in and out of the tube smoothly because in addition to having a very narrow tube, the wand itself is very flexible and tends to wobble when you are trying to replace the cap.
