In one of my recent Glossyboxes, I received a full size of the Lights Camera Flashes Mascara by Tarte. I am a mascara junkie. I will always buy and try new mascaras, and as a result, I’m pretty critical about them.
But this one, oh, this one. I am in love! First, who doesn’t want a big sparkly gold mascara tube? I mean, that alone made me excited to put it to the test. Will it deliver the greatness that the packaging predicts? Oh, yes, and much more. It’s available at Ulta and at Sephora or at Tarte’s website, here.
This mascara is billed by Tarte as being an “ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly!” And, honestly I agree.
It features a two sided brush, where one side is shorter and denser bristles to coat every single lash for intense volume. The longer and firmer side of the brush separates lashes to avoid clumping while giving length. I am usually not a fan of plastic or synthetic wands, but this one made me a changed woman, mascara-wise. The brush really does coat every lash, provide great volume, and length to each and every lash tip.
The formula is nice and wet and doesn’t clump. It wears all day without flaking or rubbing off. And, the tube itself lasts a long time. I just finished mine, and I’ve had it and used it almost daily for 13 weeks. That’s pretty impressive for a mascara. It didn’t dry out early, and maintained its formulaic integrity throughout that time period.
Overall, I had more people ask if I was wearing fake lashes with this mascara than any other mascara I use. For me, that’s a win! I will continue to repurchase this one over and over!
Here are some looks where I used this mascara, just to give you an idea.
Stay Glittery, Beauties!
