Tarte – lights, camera, lashes!

Tarte’s Lights, camera, lashes is “4-in-1 (lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning) dermatologist mascara that gives dramatic, thick, sexy lashes and s clinically proven to increase lash volume by 424%.”

Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes is formulated without mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate, and synthetic fragrances. It is dermatologist testes and cruelty free. It contains beneficial ingredients such as carnauba wax, Tartes ‘high-performance naturals, mineral pigments, olive esters, provitamin B5, rice bran wax, and water.

I suffer from a self-proclaimed “invisible eyelash” condition. As you can see in the image below, my lashes are light in color, very thin and utterly invisible, so for me to love a mascara is saying a lot. Tarte, lights, camera, lashes is my go-to mascara. It provide’s me with ample volume and length giving me a dramatic effect. I never experienced any flaking with this gentle moisturizing formula or loss of lashes. I wouldn’t build with this mascara, which can lead to clumping, and frankly there is no need to. This mascara stays on without smudging while easily remove’s with soap and water. I love the moisturizing ingredients provided in this formula because, like our hair, our lashes should be conditioned as well. The fact that this mascara is natural and cruelty-free is a bonus. The only downside for this product, in my opinion, is the awkward faux snake-skin packaging and lack of curling effect, for me as my lashes grow downwards, as product claims. Ultimately this mascara in fantastic!
