Tezzy’s Experience with the Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint Mascara

With barely-there lashes, I tend to wear black eyeliner on a daily basis. On days I don’t, I feel I look a little sickly. Mascara on its own is often not enough.

However, I kid you not when I say that the Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint Mascara has really changed my day-to-day makeup game! I am absolutely obsessed with the mascara brush. It’s minute bristles manage to catch even the tiniest of lashes, and comb out and separate them to perfection. Not a clump in sight!

This miraculous brush makes mascara application a breeze, and allows me to add layers without the fear of clumps. The end result is really voluminous, lengthened lashes that really make my eyes open up.

And they don’t call this mascara a ‘lash paint’ for nothing! This mascara is made of mineral pigments that make it ultra black and really, really pigmented. It also has a glossy tinge to it, which further enhances the voluminous finish to the lashes.

I especially love the brand’s cruelty-free stance, and that the mascara is formulated without nasty parabens, mineral oils and other harmful additives.

And how gorgeous is the packaging?! Love the dramatic combination of black and gold!

The only qualm I have with this mascara is that it is not water-proof, and by the end of the day, it can smudge a little. If you are heading for a night out after wearing this all day, you might want to do a few quick touch-ups.
