Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes - BittersweetReally cute name! Sophisticated packaging! But the performance (no pun intended lol) is just ok. This is just a little better than everyday mascara. I'll give it a clap or two, but no standing ovation from me.
Smashbox Full Exposure - Sweet
Very close to UD's Perversion, but not as clean! Smashbox is always giving away samples of this mascara! Either with a product of theirs or samples from Sephora or Ulta. It really impressed me with the amount of volume and lengthening. The problem is the more you swipe, the more clumping and spider effect you'll get (see the tips of my lashes in the picture below). So keep it to 1-2 swipes. There is a waterproof version. I just think Urban Decay's Perversion gives a cleaner look. It also does a better job separating eyelashes.

Thanks for sticking with me through my mascara testing! It's been fun, but ready to move onto something else. LOL Most of these mascara's were samples! Don't be afraid to ask a sales lady if a brand has a sample or even a travel size. You pay less for both (some you can even get for free). This allows you to test and see what works for you! I'm finding that sample and travel sizes (smaller) work better than full sizes. I don't use mascara everyday, so having a smaller quantity helps. Especially since you're suppose to throw mascara away after several months! LOL
