The Beauty:

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.

SO this week is bargain buy week at The Lease! I’ve stocked up on drugstore goodies and they are still goodies (in the sense they can compete with products selling for twice and three times the cost).
