I am ALWAYS in search of a mascara I love ever since they quit making my Maybelline lash expansion. I have tried all the expensive ones, ones from Japan down to the dollar ones. NOTHING has made me happy until I received a sample of the multipleye and the Lights, Camera, Lashes! For the first time in my life, my sparse, thin, short, straight lashes actually look good! I have to use a curler or my lashes turn down. I use the primer followed by this mascara and my lashes stay curled. They are longer than I could imagine AND I actually have bottom lashes now. I just purchased my first full size tube of the mascara and love the tube.. a little awkward getting used to, but very cool. I rave about this to everyone and can only hope they don't discontinue it anytime in the near future!
I really do need to just go out and buy a full sized tube of this. I can't believe I haven't written a review yet! Where do I start!?!? This makes my lashes look like false lashes. I love it. It lengthens them, fans them out, and gives volume. I typically will use this on top of another mascara (for curl & thickness). It works so nicely and is worth the money IMO.
This mascara is incredible. I only need to put on one coat to get the same look as 3 coats of my old mascara. Doesn't clump. Amazing. Seriously. The only reason I didn't give it a five is because I haven't had it for a long time so I don't know the staying power and all that. It's also a plus that Tarte is a cruelty free company when most of the major brands like Mac, Nars, L'Oreal, Rimmel, Revlon, and Maybelline still test on animals. That's just to name a few. Anyways, great product, I really recommend it.
This is my current mascara. I am A COMPLETE MASCARA JUNKIE. I have long, but BLONDE, sparse lashes. So I'm never looking for length, just volume and darkness. This is hard to do without clumping, so I'm constantly looking for the newest mascara. This one does a damn good job for the moderate price. I got the sample with the Tarte curler I bought (it was cute) and I liked the mascara so I bought the fullsize. The packaging is weird but the mascara is semi-dry, and that is what I like. It gives a lot of volume and blackness and best of all, HARDLY CLUMPS. I bought a comb at the same time as this, and it is somewhere in the bottom of my makeup bag. I haven't needed it, and that speaks volumes for me since my lashes love to clump. If I can save $12 and a trip to Neiman Marcus and head to Ulta instead, I'll try Tarte over my Chanel Inimitable Intense again.
I'm in love with this mascara! I picked it up when I was on holiday in the US not knowing much or having tried any Tarte products. I was very impressed when I first tried it - volume, definiton and separation! Finally, an all-in-one mascara! Easy to apply and no smudges or flaking. The only think I can fault is that the formula does dry out a little and a little bit of clumping does occur but nothing too bad. Will be buying this again and again!
I bought this mascara because a friend on the makeup business recommended it. I didn't like it at all. The more coats I applied, the clumpier it got (and no I didn't let it dry in between coats). I also curl my lashes before applying mascara and after applying this mascara, all of the curl came out of my lashes. It also made my lashes stick together as opposed to separating them. Wouldn't recommend. The packing is nice but I didn't really like that it had seams on the side instead of a smooth regular tube so it wasn't as easy to hold. Not a big deal if the mascara would've worked well, though.
This is my absolute favorite mascara. I stumbled upon it in a Tarte sampler and was extremely impressed. As soon as the sample ran out I went to Ulta to buy the real deal, almost didn't when I saw the price, then figured it was worth it. So glad I did! I have really long lashes and this product does an amazing job of accentuating the length while adding volume. There is no clumping, no flaking, it doesn't smear or smudge. When my last tube ran out, Ulta happened to be out of stock. I purchased a Lancome mascara instead (even more expensive than Tarte) and it made me realize how great the Tarte product is. Because the Lancome was so pricey I felt the need to use it all, but once it was gone I was back to Lights, Camera, Lashes. It really is fantastic.
I got this from Sephora as part of Tarte's "The Standouts" set. It is true what others have written, that is is hard to hold a curl with this mascara but I find that with a lash primer, it can. I love this mascara for work because it gives a very natural look and it does not transfer to the area under my eyes (no thanks to oily lids). That in itself is a big plus for me because I've ended up looking like a racoon with many other mascaras! I find that it does lengthen and volumize my lashes but not in a very obvious manner. If you want a false lash effect, this mscara is not for you.
I received the sample size from Sephora and it didn't do very much for my lashes. The look is very natural with minimal definition and a little length. Nothing special. Perhaps the full size is a lot better, but I'm not going to fork over the $19 USD to find out.
I received a sample of this mascara from Sephora, and I have to say, I'm really glad I didn't buy it. I have naturally very long lashes that are almost white blonde, so what I need from mascara is something that will make my lashes black and just a teensy bit fuller. That's it. I'm not lookin' for a miracle. This mascara did neither of those things. It did practically nothing. All I could think after I applied it was "boring". It also flakes really badly. I was picking black flakes off my face the next morning, even after removing my eye makeup with oil and a cleanser. Never had that happen before.
