Honest reviews



I love Tarte Lights Camera Splashes mascara. I bought the water proof version for my wedding, and it didn’t smudge despite crying 🙂

Best mascara I have ever had

I have small lashes and need to use waterproof because I live in a very humid tropical place. After trying Clinique, and MAC, which are very good, this Tarte mascara is one of a kind. My lashes look fuller, longer, and it really lasts all day. Only be careful when you apply it cause the product will smudge easily until it dries completely. Will keep on using this hope it doesnt ever get discontinued, top of tops 11/10.

Once it dries, it stays

This is my favorite all natural waterproof mascara so far. I’ve tried a few others and they flake, but Tarte Lights Camera Splashes works great and goes on smooth and stays. It takes several minutes to dry after you apply it. That was a huge adjustment for me because I am used to mascara that dries quickly. The first few times when I applied the mascara to my top lashes, then looked upward to make it easier to apply my bottom lashes, the mascara would end up on my eye lid. You really have to let it sit several minutes and dry before your eyelashes touch anything because you will get mascara on your skin or your clothing. You mascara connoisseur’s out there are probably already familiar with this, but I wasn’t so I thought I would share my experience.Once this mascara dries it is on there, and I mean really on there. It isn’t going anywhere. I took a hot shower for 15 minutes and even rubbed my face (gently) several times – no smudging mascara. The mascara was totally intact! I was really amazed. This mascara is not coming off unless you use some kind of makeup remover. Personally I like to go the all natural route. I use a mixture of grapeseed oil and castor oil to wash my face every day, this also works great as a makeup remover too. I rub the oil mixture on my eyes using my hands for 20 seconds and wipe off with a towel. Sometimes I have to do it twice to really get all of the mascara off.I really recommend this mascara. Just make sure you make the time and effort to apply it correctly and let it dry.

I love this mascara! I usually use the smaller trial size tho bc I like the smaller brush. It coats the lashes better. I buy the big one and dip my smaller lash applicators into the full size. This mascara lengthens, thickens and is the most black in color I have found. Love it! Totally waterproof, so much so I have a hard time washing it off! But I’ll take that rather then it running down my face giving me raccoon eyes!!
