Tarte Sample Sale!

Sorry for the multiple posts today, but this one is a must share – Tarte is having a big sale, while supplies last, no code needed! If you haven’t yet had the chance to try out one of my FAVORITE brands, now’s a great time!

Tarte multiplEYE™ mascara

15 Feb

Far be it from me to malign Tarte, which you will soon learn is one of my absolute favorite makeup brands. I did notice, however, that all of my reviews so far have been positive, and I do have A LOT of product misfires, so I thought I’d include one of those here.

This morning, I tried a sample sized Tarte multiplEYE mascara. Besides being annoying to type (I’m not doing it again), it’s not that great. My lashes look distinctly meh, and I have pretty nice lashes overall. I didn’t get really ANY noticeable volume, and really not much length, either. As a result, even though I usually link to products, I’m not going to link to this one, nor any others that I don’t fully endorse. If you want to give Tarte’s mascaras a try, I still fully encourage you to try Lights, Camera, Splashes!

Anyone else tried this one? If so, did you have a better experience? Also, why is WordPress suggesting “flagellation” as a tag for this? It’s not a great mascara, but it’s not THAT bad.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara

6 Feb

I am a mascara snob. I have been searching and searching for the perfect mascara, and I may have finally found it.

My mascara requirements are as follows:

  • black
  • easy to remove without a lot of scrubbing
  • gentle
  • lengthens
  • volumizes
  • doesn’t flake off or smudge over the course of eight hours

Most mascaras can satisfy a few of these requirements. Some can even satisfy almost all of them. But, in my experience, if a mascara is easy to remove, it’s also quick to smudge, and if a mascara will stay all day, I have to scrub my poor eyes to get it off (or use an oil-based remover, which I cannot stand).

As of right now, I am using Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara, and frankly, I love it. To be fair, I love pretty much everything Tarte does – they are definitely my company du jour. But this mascara really seems to do everything I demand! Now I’ve only just started using it, so it still has time to fail, or teach me some new requirement of which I have, until now, been unaware. But for now – mascara magnifique!
