Was mascara made with bat poop?
Given the likelihood that rapid infections of the delicate membranes around the eye would proibably have been the result, it wouldn't seem that the formula -- if ever tried -- would have caught on. Mascara-like concoctions have been used since the time of the Egyptians. Since they are easily concocted with oils and dark pigment such as lamp black (carbon) there is no reason to believe that exotic ingredients such as "bat poop" were ever needed. The first commercially-marketed mascara in the US, Maybelline, was concocted from Vaseline petroleum jelly and commonly-available art pigment. A couple of thousand cases of mascara injuries are treated at US emergency rooms each year. These are usually the result of injuries to the eye with the brush, or allergies.

What brands of mascara hat bat poop?
None of them have that. The chemical in question is guanine. The guanine used in mascara is made out of fish scales, not anything from bats. Guanine is one of the four "nucleobases" in DNA. The four nucleobases are adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine, or A, C, G and T. So you are also made of guanine.
