Just came back from my Sephora trip. I figured since I have to return the mascara there anyway, I might as well exchange it for another. I asked a sales associate who — expectedly — led me right back to Sephora’s wall o’ mascaras.
She suggested I try Tarte’s Light’s, Camera, Lashes! ($18). Since I now had two recommendations for that (counting Missy’s on my last mascara post), I thought I should go for it. I wanted to give in and just get my go-to, Dior’s Diorshow Blackout ($24), which is amazinggg, but figured that would contradict my experimenting mood. For those of you who don’t know, Tarte is a very green brand, concentrating on natural ingredients and recyclable packaging. The Tarte mascara is derm-tested and said to lengthen by 430%. The clincher for me is that (just like everything else in the Tarte line), it’s paraben-free, and seems like everything-else-bad-free ingredients.
I brought it home to try, and I actually really love it. It’s not as intense as Dior’s Blackout, but it gives a clean sweep that doesn’t build on the end of the lashes (like I complained Sephora’s Atomic mascara to).
Who it’s good for: If you want curl, volume, and long lashes without clumping; also good if you have sensitive eyes.
So yes, mascara search over for now.
Thanks for the help
