tarte’s new lights, camera, flashes! mascara is definitely a show stopper. If you’ve tried their original lights, camera, lashes mascara, you will recognize the packaging as being similar. This particular formula comes in a gold tube with snakeskin style print, which I think is so chic! 

Take your lashes to the extreme with this ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly! Powered by tarte’s proprietary triple black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won’t dry out, flake or budge. The custom-engineered, dual-molded brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum volume without clumping.

I’ve tried tarte mascaras before and I thoroughly enjoy the formula. I find that so many mascaras claim to be flake and smudge proof and they don’t live up to those claims. I don’t have any problems with this flaking off during the day. I also find it doesn’t irritate my allergy/itch prone eyes at all, which is a welcome relief. Sometimes after trying a new mascara, I have red eyes by the end of the day because I just can’t stand the formula and it doesn’t work with my eye sensitivities. 

My favorite part of the mascara, though, is the results it gives. I don’t use an eyelash curler with this mascara, and it keeps my lashes looking really long and lush, volumized, and curled all day long. I really couldn’t ask for better results from a mascara. In the picture above, I’m wearing the mascara on the left, and I’m wearing no mascara on the right…as if I really needed to tell you! 
The brush has two sides, one with short, denser bristles and one with longer, firmer bristles. I didn’t really notice a difference in how they made my mascara go on. I think they both contribute equally to the volumizing. You can see in the picture above, the bristles facing you are the short ones and on the sides are the long ones. I did find when I tried to use the shorter bristles, the mascara wand got dangerously close to poking my eyes out! 

I’ve really been digging this mascara lately and I think the results speak for themselves. Is there a mascara you can’t live without? Share with me in the comments!
