    I’m a tad confused, because for the volume hero mascara waterproof the ingredient list states it contains “cera alba (beeswax)” but it claims to be vegan. You also marked the lash princess sculpted volume mascara as being not vegan for containing beeswax, but in the ingredient list it says contains synthetic beeswax. Would you be able to clarify the discrepancies?
