Mascara Monday Extra Tarte Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

You thought it was all over didn't you? So did I. There really are so many mascaras out there that I'd love to try if money were no object. Luckily I got the chance to try Tarte's Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara.

The first thing Mr. Dudesday said when he saw the packaging was that he liked the wood. It's different and infinitely cool. Hey, I'm a sucker for packaging and this one is great! I'm really into a mix of materials whenever possible and an unexpected splash of wood is always welcome anywhere I am.

There's nothing inherently different about the brush or the formula but both do their job amazingly. My lashes came out clean and free of clumps in my normal amount of coats. They were long and fanned out but still volumized. Overall this is a great $19 mascara and I think the results justify the price. I swear I didn't expect to fall in love with so many pricey formulas when I first started Mascara Mondays but I definitely have. That is not to say that I wouldn't be just as happy trying out all the drugstore has to offer in this department either.

This one promises to help the overall health of lashes with continued use but I can't attest to that. I didn't pay attention to softness during use or after removal but I didn't experience any problems either.


  1. Nice review! Indeed I love the packaging :)
