FRIDAY FAVORITE: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

Mascara makes such an impact in any makeup routine and there’s nothing worse than having a lash enhancer that’s a flop.  I have tried 50, maybe 100 mascaras in my lifetime (yeah, it’s a lot) and while I find some are great at lengthening they lack in the volumizing department or they make my lashes look amazing but flake off during the day leaving me to resemble a raccoon.  It’s so hard to find a great all-in-one mascara that works for everyone.  Well I am excited to say for today's Friday Favorite the hunt is over and I am pleased to share with you by far the best all around mascara I have ever used.  Let me introduce Tarte’s Lights, Camera,Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara.  This product is the bomb diggity and let me just get to all the amazing reasons why…

  • It stays put on your lashes throughout the day.  No flaking off, no fading, this sucker stays put.
  • This mascara promises to lengthen, curl, volumize, and condition lashes and let me tell ya, it lives up to its promise.  This does such a great job of lengthening AND volumizing your lashes which is a rare to find.
  • Tarte represents “eco-chic” beauty and all their products use natural ingredients and are cruelty free.  Some findings in this mascara?  Rice bran wax, ProVitamin B, carnauba wax, and olive esters to name a few.
  • This mascara has never irritated my sensitive eyes and I love that it comes off easily with my nighttime cleanser.  (I use Philosophy’s Purity Cleanser.)  Seriously, no eye makeup remover pads needed here. 
  • This gets every last lash.  This wand picks up even the tiniest of lashes on the inner and outer corners increasing the drama of your look and producing that doe eyed effect most of us covet.

Have I convinced you yet?  If you’re in the market for a new mascara you have to try the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara.  I love to use this with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler, which I adore.  (Read full review HERE.)  This mascara has a typical brush and the formula is on the drier side, which keeps it from clumping too easily.  This can definitely be built up and I like to wiggle the wand from root to tip, then coat my lashes from the other side and then run the wand through one last time maximize the length and volume.  This product can be found in both Sephora & Ulta stores and their respective websites.  This Tarte standout retails for $21 for 0.24oz product and they also offer a travel size version for $10 and a waterproof option.  The packaging is nothing to write home about, it’s like a metallic purple fabric, but hey sometimes it’s not about the packaging, but the goodness it carries inside!

I hope you enjoyed this post and are having a wonderful week.  I feel like I have been so busy lately with traveling that I am super pumped to have a nice relaxing weekend at home to get some errands done and attempt to be a domestic goddess.  I have also been trying to amp up my clean eating and have a couple recipes I am dying to try.  #bikinibodygoals am I right girls??  In my mind if I keep drinking green smoothies and go to Pure Barre I’ll have Gigi Hadid’s body in no time.  At least that’s what I tell myself…  But thank you so much for stopping by and let me know what your weekend plans are in the comments below!  I would love to hear what you guys are up to!!

  1. I tried a sample size of this a while back and really liked it! Never ended up picking it up though. I feel like I buy a different mascara to try every time mine runs out! :)
