Mascara Monday: Tarte- Lights, Camera, Lashes
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes is a freakin' adorable name. I'll give it that. This is one of the mascaras from my mini set, one I'd wanted to try for a while. Now I shall, right?
I can't exactly say that I was disappointed by this product but I wasn't floored by it either. It's a decent mascara but with all the other wonderful ones on the market I probably won't be purchasing it.
The first thing I noticed is that it clumps, nothing crazy just those little tiny clumps that show up at the end of lashes. I would need a lash comb to separate and I don't have the time or patience for that. The color is dark black but it's matte, and in general I like my lashes to be shiny, especially in a high impact mascara such as this. The website says that it curls but honeys, I promise that it does not. Before I knew that it promised to curl I was thinking how straight my lashes looked. I wasn't going to mention it until I saw that it claimed to curl, lengthen, volumize and condition. Also, it feels heavy on my lashes and I can't stand that feeling, it's hurting as I type this but I added a lot today.
The good thing though, in case you were wondering, is that it lengthens wonderfully. My lashes are almost to my brows. And, as I mentioned, the color is black-black, no gray areas here. I had no issues with the brush either.
I wouldn't purchase this, nor would I use my free mascara voucher on it sad to say. I had high hopes.
