Today I have a double review for you; comparing two different Tarte mascaras. I received both of these as Christmas gifts, and while I was super excited to receive Tarte products since they’re one of my favorite brands, there was a clear winner here. One of these mascaras worked great for me, and the other just didn’t cut it. Scroll down to see which one is the winner!
First we have Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes 4 In 1 mascara. It retails for $23 and features a double ended applicator, with fibers on one end and mascara on the other. Find it here.
What Tarte Says: “A revolutionary, double-ended eye routine for fuller lashes in 3 simple steps.” You’re supposed to put on a coat of mascara, apply the fibers, and then add a second coat of mascara.
What I Thought: As much as I like the concept of this mascara, it reality I just can’t get behind it. The mascara end is nice and does a good job, but the fibers are not my favorite! They make your lashes weirdly fuzzy and spidery, and I had the issue of them falling off and getting in my eyes. However I do really like the brush on the mascara only end.
Next up is the Tarte Gifted Mascara, which retails for $21, is vegan, and is made with Amazonian clay. Find it here.
What Tarte Says: “An Amazonian clay smart mascara that instinctively treats your unique lash concerns- working overtime to keep lashes hydrated, intact, healthier, and stronger, while delivering the appearance of voluminous lashes.”
What I Thought: I actually agree with almost everything here! I can’t say whether it’s smart, but the brush makes my lashes extremely thick, and even curls them a little! It doesn’t make them especially lengthy, but then again it doesn’t claim to! This mascara has found its place in my everyday makeup bag. And how pretty is the bamboo packaging too!
We clearly have a winner here! The Gifted mascara beats the Lights, Camera, Lashes, hands down. I just couldn’t get over the weird fibers! I’ll probably use the mascara end without them though.
What do you think? Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
