Product Review: TARTE Mascara Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1

Product Review: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-in-1 Mascara 
Product Description & Claims: (From Sephora's Website)
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-in-1 Mascara could be considered a push-up bra for your lashes—a 4-in-1 (lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning) dermatologist- and clinically-proven to increase the appearance of lash volume by 424% after applying giving dramatic, thick and sexy lashes. 
  • This mascara contains Skinvigorating™ ingredients like:
1. Rice bran wax to help lengthen lashes 

2. Carnauba wax, an emollient wax that ensures a smooth application
3. ProVitamin B5 treats and thickens lashes
4. Olive esters condition, treat, and protect lashes
5. Mineral pigments known for their soothing and softening properties.

My Experience:
I hauled this mini during an Ulta trip recently for $10 bucks. Now, just for the record- I'm a firm believer in drugstore mascara's. Never have I really bothered with a high end mascara but, well...let's just say it ended up in my shopping basket. It seems to have a throw back wand with the traditional short bristles. When I first pulled the wand out I could see plenty of product which seemed to be on the "wet" side. The color is definitely jet black and coats each lash nicely. However, I noticed some clumping and was not happy about that. After, 11 hours of wear I noticed it stayed on without flaking or smudging.

I haven't used it long enough to attest to the claims of increasing lash volume or conditioning properties. But I haven't noticed any lash fall out or stiffness when coated with product.Also, I have noticed the product doesn't hold a curl as well as I prefer. Taking the product of is super easy. No tugging or pulling. The product came off in a minute and absolutely no eye irritation.

  1. I've heard so much about tarte mascaras, I wish tarte cosmetics was more readily available in the UK.
