The mascara world is a wide, spidery, scary place. There are so many different options depending on what you want for your lashes (and your wallet). I try to explore a wide range of them so that YOU don’t have to. As I was prepping more posts, I found myself lucky to have scooped up a Tarte goodie box from Sephora and this little gem was nestled inside of it.
First, I’m not super into packaging or the ~aesthetic~ of an actual product but this little baby is just so cool. Plus it’s PURPLE. And purple is my favorite color.
Second, the brush reminds me a bit of Dior’s Diorshow Black Out mascara (and if you know me at ALL you know that’s my go-to product). So already there’s a plus in the Tarte win-column. Now, let’s do it to it.
At some point, I’ll stop telling you how to put mascara on but that day is NOT today: curl those lashes then pop your mouth open a bit and widen your eyes and BOOM you have mascara on!
Um, but seriously – it’s v simple and I don’t want to insult your intelligence.
So, after my first time wearing this I was about to write a relatively scathing review. But then I apparently stopped being a grumpy betch and tried it again. The formula certainly adds volume and lengthens. The downside? It’s a bit flakey. There’s always going to be some trade offs when it comes to mascara formulas but in the wide world of products, you can find better.
