I Tried Thrive Causemetics - Does It Live Up To The Hype?
We've all seen those TikTok videos of a trending influencer applying mascara on their extravagantly long lashes, claiming "this product is life-changing."
They might be naturally blessed but I wish mascara could make my lashes look that amazing.
I've pretty much been using the same brand for years. And when I did venture out of my comfort zone to sample a few different brands they never measured up to those Instagram influencers' luscious lashes. And before I knew it I was back to my same old drug store brand.
I was constantly complaining to my friends so for my birthday my best friend Mia gifted me Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ from Thrive Causemetics! She said it won the Allure Beauty award for Best Tubing Mascara in 2020. Plus, it's 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and it doesn't include any harmful ingredients, like parabens or sulfates.
Originally, they were an American beauty brand, but Mia says Thrive is a must-have now that they're in Canada. Additionally, Thrive Causemetics is an inclusive makeup and skincare brand that focuses on quality and community. So for every product purchased, they donate to help women thrive. Thrive even donated actual products to help frontline workers during COVID-19.
Mia insisted I give it a try. Everything about their brand seemed cool, and vegan which I prefer. I'd tried some vegan makeup brands in the past but couldn't find any that suited me or were effective. Although I had a million questions I decided to put their Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ to the test.
The first thing I noticed was the shade is a neutral-toned, brown-black color, not the usual intense black I was used to. All brown mascaras I've tried in the past were either too light or just looked weird. This one is the perfect in-between color and flatters my skin tone perfectly.
The wand is easy to use and voilà! It really looks great on me - the shade, the consistency - not clumpy at all. And the length? Stunning!
I simply had to learn more about this miracle mascara - I'm that kind of person. Thrive Causemetics' Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ has a unique formula that includes Orchid Stem Cell Complex™, Flake Free Tubing Technology™, Castor Seed Oil, and Shea Butter. These planet-friendly ingredients promote growth, moisturize, condition, and strengthen your follicles.
After about 7 weeks of use, my natural lashes seem a bit longer and healthier! It's subtle, but it's happening - and once I apply the mascara, they look even longer. Where was Thrive when I was in college!?!
Thrive Causemetics have seriously made their mark in the US so I'm super happy that I can get their best selling products in Canada (online) and since they ship from Canada it means shorter wait times. I bought their mascara in two shades - Brown Black (Crystal) for daily use and Rich Black (Brynn) for a more dramatic appearance.
I wanted to see their other products and discovered their Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner™ - smudge-proof, budge-proof, and sets in 30 seconds.
Now that I'm using cruelty-free makeup and vegan products, I feel so much better. Plus, Thrive Causemetics' makeup has ingredients that actually nourish my skin and are lightweight (I don't feel like I'm wearing three layers). And I really appreciate that they're easy to apply (before I rush off to work), not to mention long-lasting.
They are the real deal. So, if you're looking for a fresh mascara or any beauty product, I'd highly recommend Thrive Causemetics.
