The Best Non Toxic Eyeliner: My Review

When it comes to green beauty anything, it can be difficult to find ones that perform just as good as conventional ones. And that's no different when looking for the best non toxic eyeliner. Over the years, I've tried a lot of different types and brands and I wanted to share the ones I loved and which ones didn't work well. So let's get to it!

The Best Non Toxic Eyeliner: Pencils

Alima Pure, Natural Definition Eye Pencil:

This is the latest eye liner I've tried and I'm SO INTO IT. I think it may be one of the best non toxic eyeliners I've tried so far. It glides on effortlessly and is a true pure, deep black in terms of colour. I don't think I've come across another eye liner (pencil) that goes on as smooth as this one. The moisturizing extracts are what assure that even and smooth application. The only downside to this one is that it can smudge just a bit after you put it on. I find it happens right in the corner of the eye (right after you apply it) and with a quick wipe its gone. Other than that, it stays on all day and doesn't smudge. I use the shade ink, which is a pure, deep black. Also, it washes off VERY EASILY, so you don't need to worry about tugging at your eye area.

Hynt Beauty, Forte High Definition Eye Liner

I've used this eye liner in the past and it does a decent job of lining your eyes. However, it doesn't go on as smooth as the Alima Pure so for that reason, I'd still recommend Alima over Hynt. This one doesn't smudge and does stay on all day, but the application is not as smooth as I'd like. I also found that sharpening this one was a little more difficult.

Vapour, Eye Definer

This one performed pretty well but similar to the Hynt one above, it wasn't as smooth as Alima Pure. Although I do love Vapour foundation for my skin type (which is on the dry side), I don't love this eye liner enough to repurchase. I know that they recently reformulated a lot of their products, so perhaps this eye liner is smoother now.

I think you can tell, out of the three pencils, I'd definitely recommend and repurchase Alima Pure.

The Best Non Toxic Eyeliner: Liquid

Every now and then, I love the look of liquid eyeliner. It definitely requires a bit more effort and precision, so for this reason, I usually save it for special occasions. In the past, I used to do liquid liner all the time, so I definitely understand the importance of finding a good one. Below are the the best non toxic eyeliners I've tried.

100% Pure, Black Tea Long Last Liquid Eye Liner

This one goes on quite easily, with the brush. The only downside I find, is how fast it dries. If you make a mistake, it can be difficult to fix it and I find it peels off a little in certain areas if you do end up trying to go over certain areas to fix it. However, It doesn't smudge at all and will stay on all day long which is great. Once you get used to the application and the brush, you usually don't experience any more issues.

Tip: less is more with this product, so be sure to wipe the applicator on the side of the tube so you don't use too much product. It also washes off easily at night with an oil cleanser, which is usually what I use. See below for my fave cleanser right now!

Zuzu Luxe, Liquid Eyeliner

I've also tried this liquid liner from Zuzu Luxe and I really love how easily this one glides on. The brush is also a little easier in my opinion to master than the 100% Pure one. It's also more forgiving than the 100% Pure which as I stated can be a little difficult to fix if you make a mistake applying it. The colour is deep and pigmented as well. This brand also comes in lots of fun colours, although I tend to always stick to black. I would definitely repurchase and recommend this product to anyone looking for an easy to use liquid eyeliner. This one also washes off easily with an oil cleanser.

My Other Favourite Green Beauty Eye Products

If you want to read all about my favourite green beauty mascaras, you can check out this post. I am constantly updating it with new products.

Fave Green Beauty Brow Pencil

In keeping with the theme of all things eyes, the brows are just as important. My favourite product BY FAR is Kimiko Beauty Fine Eyebrow Pencil. The fine strokes you can get from this product is what makes it SO GOOD. It looks very natural, lasts all day and is fairly easy to use. I've bought it twice now and will continue to use this brow pencil going forward. The brush at the end of the pencil is perfect for blending and brushing your brow hairs up.

I have these cookies in the oven right now (2nd time making them in a few weeks). They are perfection and will be a great gift for some coworkers tomorrow. I made the recipe as is, great texture! I saved some for me too, don't worry ;)

Don’t sleep on this wing recipe. It is soooo good! I can see this being a staple for game days, casual dinners or honestly…any day. Such a crowd pleaser as well. Oh and please don’t skip the dip. It’s unreal stuff! I was grabbing random things in my kitchen to eat it with once the wings were done.

The simplest recipe to make a delicious desert! I left out the cacao and just made vanilla coconut flavor and it was heavenly. I plan to add different flavors in the future; cacao with Orange or raspberry essence, vanilla salted, caramel flour de sel- the options are endless. Glad to find a keto friendly treat that can be made easily at home.

When do you add the mushrooms back in the pot?

These were good! I've been curious to try making a miso dessert for a little while now, but wanted it to be grain free. I've found that almond flour based chocolate chip cookies always have some kind of nut butter, and since I just use peanut butter, it's like a PB cookie. The miso did a great job replacing nut butter and achieved a great, chewy consistency! It's definitely strong, although I'm sure white miso would have been more mild. I used dashi miso, which in hindsight sounds pretty gross.. the cookies were not at all fishy tasting, but just bold and kind of salty/savory. I think next time I'll try a little less miso. I have a tendency to use less sugar than a recipe calls for, but I definitely needed it in this one to balance the miso flavor. I just used regular butter too, not ghee.

Yes, I like it a lot. Lentils are nutritious and inexpensive.

I’m just learning about adaptogens and trying to incorporate them into my “healthy arsenal”. Thanks for the info!

This is the first cinnamon roll recipe i've actually gotten to work! I let the dough rest in the fridge for 4-5 hours and then rolled and filled it, then let it rest in the fridge over night and it worked great for an early morning bake. I looked through the whole recipe and you never mention what temperature to bake at. It just says "place in your preheated oven to bake" I baked at 350. Also it would be really nice if the caramel sauce recipe was included here. All in all totally delicious, worth the effort, and I will be making this again.
