Remember waaaaaayyyyyyy back when when I hauled this little guy for a mere $10 on sale from Ulta?
Well, I sure do.
I can't believe it's taken me two months to get around to finally cracking it open (well, actually, it makes perfect sense; I only wear mascara half the time and I had about a half a tube left of my last mascara to finish up) but now that I have... well, if you watched my most recent "Best & Worst of Beauty" video (I promise, I didn't plan on all of these self-promoting plugs #don'tfightdestiny) you'd know that I might be a high end mascara convert.
The packaging of tarte's "lights, camera, lashes!" mascara is really unique and I have yet to tell if I really care for it; the mascara tube is wrapped in a soft plastic-y quilted purple package. I don't hate it or anything it's just... different (hey, I never said I wanted to teach creative writing).
The wand of the mascara isn't all that impressive either; at least not until you run it through your lashes. This coats EVERY last lash and creates incredible length and volume. It's a wetter formula than many mascaras I've worked with before but I've had no issues with this smearing during dry-down.
This mascara is all sorts of magic on my lashes: It's as light as whipped cream but looks like I'm wearing pounds of falsies; it doesn't flake or break; and, even though this isn't the waterproof version (sadly, that one wasn't on sale), it held up well throughout a Grey's Anatomy sob session (EVERYONE was dying, I couldn't help myself).
Overall I am just so beyond impressed with the tarte "lights, camera, lashes!" mascara. The fact that I get excited about putting this on in the morning (and don't agonize over taking it off at night [it's smooth as butter coming off!]) speaks about as loud as this mascara looks: volumes.
Have you tried the tarte "lights, camera, lashes!" mascara?
Love it? Hate it?
What's your favorite mascara at the moment?
