I have been trying out Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, which is supposed to be a 4-in-1 mascara, meaning it claims to 1.lengthen, 2.curl, 3.add volume, and 4. condition your lashes.
It is only available in black (but even most extremely fair completed blonde’s wear black mascara, so who cares?) and comes in this neat purple packaging. Like all Tarte products, it contains only natural ingredients and contains no parabens, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances, which is the number one reason why I love Tarte so very much!
But lets get down to the nitty gritty! How does it really perform? I will let pictures speak for me!
It certainly does all that it claims in my opinion – it is lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning! However, it does have a tendency to clump if you are not careful or do not use a mascara primer. Mascara primers are great anyway – look at the difference it makes:
Tarte has their own lash primer called multiplEYE™ lash enhancing primer, which I did not use because I do not have it. When I run out of my studio gear primer, I think I will try it out! (I will update this post if/when I get it to show how this mascara performs with it!) Anyway, I find that the clumping of this mascara can also be dealt with by letting it dry and then gently combing through your lashes with a basic eyelash comb.
Overall, I highly recommend this mascara! It is my new favorite! It is available in a regular and waterproof formula for $19 at Sephora, Ulta, or of course, tarte’s website.
