ABOUT THIS BRANDAs a celebrity makeup artist, it wasn’t JoAnn Fowler’s intention to create a makeup line. After L-Word actress Mia Kirshner requested paraben-free makeup, Fowler searched for natural options to no avail. Upon researching the negative effects of toxins in makeup, Fowler struggled to find the performance she craved in clean formulas. With a few nudges of support from Kirshner, JoAnn followed the calling to formulate a green makeup line suitable for being on-set and Sappho was born. As head of the makeup department for The L-Word, she had the perfect canvas to test her formulas, and in the end named each of the twelve Sappho foundation shades after the female cast members of the show. Every detail of each Sappho product has been mindfully crafted, from the eco-friendly, biosphere-treated compostable tubes and glass foundation bottles, to the details of the mascara brush and melt-into-your skin formulas. JoAnn quickly proved that performance and luxury doesn’t have to suffer with safe products.
This mascara is perfect. Super glossy black, adds great length and volume without looking clumpy or spidery. The only con is that it is not at all water proof and if you cry or if its super humid, its probably going to smudge. I don't mind it at all though, because it makes taking it off so easy and gentle on the eyes. This is my new favorite mascara, I wish they made it in a brown as well!
I wasn't expecting to love this mascara but it blew me away. I received it in a discovery box and ended up loving it so much. It's by far my favorite clean mascara, it lasts all day, does not transfer. It makes my lashes look fuller and they feel nourished. I am trying a different mascara right now but will definitely purchase this again when I run out of my current one.
So happy to experience this in the LE makeup discovery! I have always struggled with mascaras smudging and heavy fallout! This formulation is exceptional! No smudging, no fallout, great build-ability for those who like to layer (I've applied three layers with no clumping, or heaviness, all LENGTH!)!!! Definite re-purchase!
I'm so glad I ordered the Sappho make up box. I really wasn't expecting anything from the mascara, because let's face it, they aren't many good green mascara's around. Was I wrong though! it's the perfect deep black, gives a good amount of volume, and most importantly, does NOT move all day (but comes off easily with any cleanser). I have tried many others and most of them end up under my eyes after a few hours. Even with an oil based concealer (RMS), this one does not. Just perfect!
I have tried almost every cult classic clean beauty mascara and have found that all but one smudge and flake. I have somewhat dry skin, so I use the Maya Chia Super Couple and Eye Achiever, then top with a face cream. Yes, I add lots of moisture. However, even when I add less, other mascaras smudge and flake. Today is my third day in a row wearing the Sappho mascara using my full moisture routine. And? No smudging. Not at all, even with 10 hour wear. Amazing. I get good length and volume with two coats and, because I prefer a boost to the natural look, I love the result. Wow! This is a real winner. Thanks, BH.
