I have very oily lids and live in a hot, humid place.

I really like this mascara. It holds my curls in place for the whole day and does not smudge throughout the day. It was a little bit wet when I first bought it and at that time it smudge a little, but after a few months (yes I know) it has dried up every so slightly and doesn't smudge anymore!

It also adds a a bit of length to my lashes, but it as good as what I would hope from a mascara of this price. However it is not clumpy and because of that I would repurchase it if I'm looking for a "natural" looking mascara.

Holds curl
Doesn't smudge

Does not lengthen enough
Have to wait a few months for it to be a consistency that I like
Hate the packaging

I can't get this to work. I look like I have nothing on. True, it is reliably waterproof, but I'm not sure that matters when you can't see that you're wearing it in the first place.

I was very skeptical at first because the first couple applications I had a very hard time building length or girth. However, on a tropical vacation this is just the thing. Tons of swimming and high humidity replete with rain this is not budging. And it is giving me nice separate lashes with some good length. Not a lot of thickness but I do think this is a successful waterproof mascara. I mark down one star for lack of girth and how many applications it took before I got an results at all. However, it does build nicely for a second application later in the day when Freshening up.

Amazing mascara! I'm only buying waterproof because it holds my curl, and it does exactly that while maintaining volume and length. I marked down one lipstick because it is a very very wet formula but just give it a month to dry than youre all set !!!!

Ok so i dont usually use waterproof mascara. In the past i found it was clumpy and a bitch to remove but in a moment of excitement I decided to research and try again. I also want to go to a pool party and swim and still look beautiful...or at least feel I look beautiful.
The picture that is up looks nothing like the 1 I bought in fact the waterproof tube is the same as the regular.
Anyway, I tested it out tonite in prep for the party tomorrow and i am happy to report it goes on smoothly and without any clumping. It seemed just like the non-waterproof formula also it came off just as easily.
I am very happy with this purchase though it is expensive at $22+

LOVE this mascara. It is the best. Really makes my lashes look like i am wearing falsies!!! Love how thin the formula is and it doesn't run or smudge. It is easy to get off with Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser. I have gotten so many compliments on my lashes since I got this. Def will repurchase!!! Great job TARTE <3

I got this product by accident and was a semi gift also since my aunt bought it for me while we were shopping at Sephora. Anyway, this mascara dries sticky for me and when I blink my lashes get stuck to my bottom lashes which is annoying. Not the best mascara. Adds some length and volume but eventually turns clumpy looking if you don't apply slowly and carefully. I wouldn't buy again because of this, and even if it was good I wouldn't because this waterproof version contains cera alba aka beeswax and i preferably try to buy all vegan makeup products.

This is a good mascara that I have purchased twice now. It is initially very wet when first opened and if you are clumsy like me you might get mascara smudges. But the tube does dry over time (about a month) so that it is easier to use. I like more noticeable mascara and this volumizes and lengthens my lashes. I use waterproof because of contacts and needing to put eye drops in at times. Recently I packed this for a family vacation in Maui and it held up to the pool and ocean, no smudging or flaking! I purchase Tarte cosmetics for their cruelty free stance and my only complaint is I wish this mascara used synthetic beeswax so it is truly cruelty free and vegan.

I thought I was going to love this mascara, wrong!
I would not repurchase this and I wish I had returned it.
-takes over 15 minutes to dry
-gets everywhere because of the drying time
-the packaging comes apart
-I know its waterproof but its really hard to get off! (I had to wash my face 4 times and use a oil based makeup remover)
-for the price I would rather buy drugstore one

- its definitely waterproof
- lasts a long time

Is it a bad mascara? No. Would I repurchase it? No. This mascara gives a touch of volume and length, but it has a consistency that is not-quite-but-almost chalky. I also noticed it is rather drying and does not separate my lashes as much as I would like. That being said, it creates a decent look, but the quality just isn't where it should be...especially for the price.
