Bare minerals lashtopia mascaraThe bare minerals lashtopia is a mineral based mascara that’s said to be free from paraben, gluten, synthetic fragrance, cruelty-free and is vegan too!

The main aim of this mascara is to dramatically volumize lashes’ hoping to create ‘fluttery fanned out fullness’. Bare minerals state you get all this whilst the formula works on ‘nourishing and conditioning’ your lashes.

According to their site, a consumer test consisting of 29 individuals, 100% agreed their lashes looked fuller. Sounds promising though.

So let’s see how good it is!


The brush or wand which comes with the mascara is a tapered shape with around 600 bristles according to their site, it’s also ment to be fluffy helping to coat each individual lash from root to tip.

But I was most excited about the ‘fluttery fanned out’ look as I haven’t really experienced that result in a while.

I would like to say bare minerals did a good job in creating the brush, it’s not too hard, flexible for sure making it soft and gentle on the lashes.Bare minerals lashtopia mascara

The bristles are layered with different lengths which is actually quite effective in covering majority of the lashes.

It also does achieve a somewhat ‘fluttery fanned out’ look just like bare minerals stated. I think I can say it’s probably one of the best lash brush I’ve used in a while!

For me a good formula is the one which is water resistant, long-lasting and also doesn’t dry up hardening my lashes. There are quite a few mascaras I’ve tried which just stiffen my lashes, to the point that blinking feels unnatural.

I have also noticed dry formulas tend to flake more often and become a chore when removing them.

So how was the lashtopia formula?

I’m pleased to say that the formula was overall great, it wasn’t overly drying neither too wet, it was just right. Kinda like the ‘whipped mousse’ consistency, bare minerals mention.

But I would like to add, the mascara did flake a little after a few hours, nothing too serious though.

Oh did I forget to mention it was great for my sensitive eyes too, whilst using it, my eyes did not water or get irritated so I guess that’s a thumbs up for the formula from my eyes!


The bare minerals lashtopia mascara should not flake, smudge neither clump. I’m pretty sure we’re all looking for these features in order to consider a mascara as a great and successful product.Bare minerals lashtopia mascara

And of course long-lasting, along with volumizing effects that actually works.

Anyways enough said, so how well did it perform in this area?

Well I can say it does a good job in adding volume and a little drama even though my lashes are naturally long, I can definitely tell the difference when I’ve applied, with even one coat.

However I’d say the second coat is when the magic happens. My lashes were given visible length and volume.

As for its performance, like I’ve mentioned before I did experience a little flaking towards the end however it did not smudge or cause any clumps. It lasted long too, I’d say it was around 6 hours it stayed tough!

So the verdict on bare minerals lashtopia mascara?

Overall I’d rate the bare minerals mascara an 9/10! It’s great for sensitive eye peeps, lasts long, doesn’t clump or smudge apart from the flaking it’s a great performance. It certainly adds volume to lashes just like bare minerals state.

Though it is priced on the higher end, I’d say it is worth it, compared to other of its rivals in the same price range, it definitely beats them in many aspects. You can view the lashtopia mascara here!

    I have tried many brands of cosmetics, and once you find a brand that you love, you do not want to switch brands. My issue is that most generic brands break my skin out, so I have to spend a little more for more named brands. I usually use Mary Kay, but recently switched to Bare Minerals, and it seems better to me. I’ve only used the bare minerals lash Topia mascara a couple of times, but I’m already in love with it!

    This is a very interesting and eye opening article for me to read Sariyah as my wife has been using the Bare Minerals brand of cosmetics for years now and I had not idea that this was a vegan product.

    Not having Parabens, gluten or fragrances will make the Lashtopia mascara a valid option even for those who typically have to watch out for certain allergens or irritants that are not conducive to a healthy face and skin.

    It sounds like a good bit of engineering has gone into the tapered nature of the brush or wand that features 600 individual bristles.

    The water resistant, long lasting formula lends itself to efficient applications that do not dry out.

    Thanks, Sariyah, for the detailed review. I’m so pleased to see more vegan beauty products. I finally managed to find a mascara a couple of years ago that doesn’t clump, but it still does harden my lashes. This is really promising: a mascara that does what it should: give you long-lasting, beautiful lashes and vegan! I would rather never wear makeup or use any products ever than use something that is not cruelty-free. 9/10 is a generous rating – let’s give it a try!

    Hello again, this is not my first visit here and I enjoy reading your information. 

    I have been on the hunt for a new mascara for my wife that gives that mix of volume without the clumpiness, and Lashtopia sounds like a good product from what you say based on your experience. 

    If I can ask you, have you found it works well for sensitive eyes too? I have seen my wife have her share of mascara mishaps in the past, so I am always a bit cautious.

    Thanks for the info.

      Hey Chris thanks for the comment and for being a regular!
      Finding the right mascara can be hard especially when you have other features to consider such as being sensitive eye friendly!

      I found it works great with sensitive eyes, mine didn’t show the usual type of watery reactions however it is best if your wife first gives a small amount a test before going all in just to be on the safe side.

      Thanks again and have a great day!

    Hey Sariyah, 

    Your fabulous review on The Bare Minerals Lashtopia Mascara presents an engaging perspective on a vegan beauty product that appears to reconcile the gap between ethical consumption and high-quality makeup. I have a favorable opinion about the topic because it is refreshing to come across comprehensive reviews considering product effectiveness and ethical standards. The equilibrium between advantages and disadvantages, including minor flaking and significant benefits such as sensitivity suitability and dramatic volume, provides a realistic portrayal of the product. This approach assists buyers in making informed choices, particularly those who prioritize vegan and cruelty-free options. It is heartening to witness such in-depth evaluations in the beauty industry, underscoring the importance of compassionate decisions while maintaining high-performance standards. I liked your review. Keep up the good work.
