Honest Extreme Length Mascara has won some awards (Allure Reader’s Choice and People Beauty). Its unique design distinguishes it. The tube has applicators at both ends. One is for a primer or base layer. The other is the actual mascara which goes on smoother and stays on longer over the primer. Both formulas are made with jojoba esters and without parabens, paraffins, synthetic fragrances, silicones, or mineral oil. It’s EWG Certified for the healthy ingredients.
The tube is designed to be recycled. Instructions are provided if you scroll down the Amazon page. However, you need to check your local recycling operations to find out if they’ll accept it. And it’s not clear whether all parts are recyclable. But this is a significant step in the right direction for cosmetics.
We are searching high and low for cosmetics in containers that are fully recyclable or refillable. Mascara is particularly challenging. We rate this 4 due to uncertainties around recycling small plastic parts.
Planet-friendly rating: 4
