Review It: L’Oreal Bare Naturale Mascara

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 1, 2008

I thought I would officially introduce a ‘Review It’ installment to Oh She Glows!

In these installments, I will review new beauty, food, health, fashion, & fitness products! :D

First up:

  1. L’Oreal Bare Naturale Mascara


I got this on sale this weekend when my old mascara ran out. I have huge gripes about mascara that is too thick and clumps, so I was hoping anything called ‘naturale‘ would give me a more natural and clump-free look!


I was quite impressed when I took the wand out. It appeared to be a lot less gunky than most of my new fresh-out-of-the-package mascaras.

Regardless, I always swipe my wand with a Kleenex before using- this is the only way I can get a really natural, clump free look. It also allows me to layer my mascara (usually 2-3 thin coats).

My rating:

  • 4/5 Stars
  • I was pretty impressed with this mascara and would buy it again.
  • No flaking at the end of the day.

A picture says a thousand words:


A natural yet defined look I would say! :D


I will admit, I am a chronic ‘the grass is greener on the other side’ beauty buyer.

I love beauty products and will often stray from my favs just to try out new stuff! It is fun. I do have some mainstays in my loot though. It just depends on my mood (and sales help too!).

Do you have a mascara brand that you’ve been using forever? Or do you prefer to try out new ones?


I never realized how much my tea obsession had gotten out of hand until I unpacked all of it today….


Some teas shown:

Tetley Decaf, Tetley caffeinated, Red Rose, P.C. Organic Peppermint Tea, Candy Cane Lane (my current fav- a decaf green tea inflused with candy cane), Ginger, Vanilla Maple Decaf, Gingerbread Spice, Bigelows Peppermint, etc!

The one tea I can’t find in my area is the Egg’noggin tea! I love eggnog flavour and have been dying to try it out! :(  So sad….


I want to leave tonight with a message of the futileness of worry:

Don’t worry be Happy!

Life Is Too Short!

Goodnight everyone…hope you had a great start to your week :)

Hey Angela,

My fave mascara is Diorshow. It’s pricey but I’ve been using it for years and haven’t been disappointed.

Enjoy the rest of your night!

Great review!!

**My favorite mascara = Chanel

I’ve been using Maybelline Great Lash forever.

I think you might have me beat with the teas!! I have soooo many. I need to stop buying them and use up what I have in my cupboard.

I’d love for you to try Neutragena Weightless Volume. It’s the ONLY mascara I have found to give my short little lashes a feathered look without any two lashes touching.

LOL, i realized the same thing about my tea when I moved to boston in october :)

I’ve been using Diorshow by Dior for 5 years. It may be 24 dollars, but I swear it has lasted me a year and beyond, and looks great and never clumps. Since I don’t wear a lot of make-up this mascara highlights my feature I love, my eyes. Try it out, you will never go back to anything else!


Erin December 1, 2008 at 11:26 pm

I just realized Sarah requested it too, yay!

Just recently came across your site and am excited to read a blog that encompasses so much (life, food, fashion, etc).

To answer your question: I love CoverGirl Lash Exact. The rubber bristles are fantastic and it doesn’t clump (and I wipe the wand before using).

Also, I love your hair! Did you just do the curling iron trick from your previous post? I have such a hard time keeping my hair curled… do you have any tips, or is it just a lot of hairspray?

I have a slight tea obsession, too! I have tons of decaf for night time drinking. What is your favorite kind?
