During the Sephora semi-annual sale, I cashed in 100 beauty rewards points for a deluxe sample of the new Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara from Tarte.
I was initially afraid to try this product out because so much mascara appeared on the wand, but this formulation was great and did not result in any clumps or those weird spidery lashes. It’s also $23 (the full-size version) which is pretty standard for most mascaras at Sephora.
Pros: Like a great bra, this mascara lifts and separates. It provides amazing definition and coats lashes with dark drama. It doesn’t curl lashes when used alone, but it pairs really well with an eyelash curler. It keep the curl pretty well and lengthens the lashes too which makes the curl extra spectacular.
Cons: I only use black mascara, but my blonde friends looking for a brown mascara will be disappointed since this one only comes in black.
Overall, I think this is a great mascara. It provides way more definition than my go-to Diorshow. Some have said that this is too similar to the original bestselling Tarte mascara Light, Camera, Lashes, but I think this provides way more separation (because this brush is spikier) and keeps the curl better. I think I’ll be purchasing the full-size of this product once I’m ready for another purchase.
