DAB Herb Makeup Review


Cosmetics and hair products are some of the last things on my list to convert to the healthier green side. While I have tried many natural versions, nothing was leaving me feeling as comfortable as the conventional chemical stuff was. Of course, I was not OK with this, so I finally made efforts this year to fully commit. It was a lot easier after I discovered mineral makeup as an all natural, full coverage foundation. Eventually, I was left with the very last harsh cosmetic to rid from my beauty bag… mascara.


A review of a great Etsy shop, DAB Herb Makeup, that hand makes all natural, pure, organic cosmetics. Better for your health, better for the environment, smell divine! Great way to eliminate harsh chemicals from your daily beauty routine.


I was using a high quality, brand name, luscious black mascara that gave me the best lashes I’ve ever had, but I still wasn’t happy with the chemicals being so close to, and even getting into my eyes. I’d wash it all off at night and still wake up to raccoon eyes. What the heck? So I got on Etsy and searched for natural mascara. There I found DAB Herb Makeup.

I purchased the “Organic Herb Mascara” which is black in color and actually nourishing to the lashes. I knew this mascara wasn’t going to give me the length and definition as the one I was using, but what it WASN’T going to give me was more bad stuff around and in my eyes. When I got my package, I was super excited! I opened it up to investigate and the smell that came out of this bottle of mascara was the most pure and peaceful, natural, herbal scent. I couldn’t believe this scent was coming from MASCARA! The next day I applied it and I was a happy green mama.

The mascara has a great texture, but less thick than most mascaras on the market. When applying it, it is important you don’t rush so you can carefully coat your lashes and not get it on your skin. It does come off incredibly easy if you do make a smudge. A few coats later and I had defined, black lashes to complete my natural makeup routine. No, it does not make my lashes as artificially long as the one I was using, but when I clean it off at night, I wake up to clean eyes. That, I love about it! On hot days, you need to watch for under eye smudging. This doesn’t bother me, most mascaras are like that to a certain extent. This one, being all natural, is very easy to re-apply during the day if you need to. The shop also includes helpful tips for using their all natural, organic makeup.

As an added bonus, I received a free sample with my purchase, of their “Organic Root Lip Stain“. It too smells fresh and pure. This is pretty much the smoothest lip balm I have ever used and the subtle color it leaves behind is the perfect shade for any outfit. It’s not too bright, not too intense, not too dark. I loved the sample so much I placed another order within 2 weeks and bought 3 of these lip stains. One for me, one for my mother, and one for my mother-in-law. We are all in love.

These products don’t just feel good on your skin, they feel good to use. You are getting pure, natural ingredients which won’t harm you or the environment, you are supporting a small business, and you are demonstrating to the world that it is possible to wear cosmetics made from what is found in the earth and look just as glamorous as all those big brand name cosmetic companies claim you need to. Plus, wearing clean, organic makeup does not have to cost you a fortune.
