Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara in Black

A mascara I've wanted to try for over a year (no exaggeration) is the Organic Wear Jumbo mascara from Physicians Formula.  When I received my American parcel, this is what I was most excited to rip out of it's packaging.  After wearing this mascara for the past couple of weeks, I thought I'd give it a review and tell you what I think about it.  

Something Physicians Formula as a brand are proud of, is that they're eco friendly and make their cosmetics from 100% natural ingredients, 47% of which are organic.  This mascara contains no parabens, harsh chemicals or synthetic preservatives of any kind.  Physicians Formula claim that this mascara will give lashes 100% more glamour and volume and that it contains 'OrganiSoy', to help moisturise and nourish lashes.   The wand is made up from a recyclable plastic, meaning the bristles are sturdy, allowing you to really work the product into the lashes and to help separate them.  It's formula is rich in colour and has a lasting power of around six hours, although if you need it to last longer, a touch up after this time will definitely help.

As you can see above, one coat of this mascara defines and lengthens lashes, giving slightly more drama.  After two coats you can see the difference, the lashes have doubled in intensity and look a lot longer and more voluminous.  I don't tend to put much mascara on my bottom lashes, as I'm not a fan of the spider legs look, but I find that one coat really defines and separates them.  As for the moisturising and nourishing benefits that this mascara claims to have - If I'm honest, I haven't noticed a difference but this isn't disappointing as I wanted the mascara for it's volumising benefits.  The only gripe I have with this mascara is that if your eyes water or perhaps you're watching a sad film and you shed a tear or two, boy does it make your eyes sting.  This has only happened twice towards the end of the evening, so it's not a major tragedy to have to whip it off but I'd rather it didn't do that at all.  

At £11.99 it's at the top of the high street price points but I think it's worth it.  If you're looking to add some more drama and volume to your lashes, with an added lengthening bonus, this could be the mascara for you.  

Have you tried this mascara or do you swear by another high street product?
