Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara Review & Swatches
Friday, April 15, 2016
Tarte has a new mascara and it's called Tarteist Lash Paint. I definitely gave it the side-eye, because of the word PAINT. You PAINT fences! You PAINT walls! I PAINT...I mean polish my nails. But to PAINT your lashes? Sounds kind of heavy to me! Well, the consistency of this mascara is pretty black (jet black) & thick! However, the hard-bristled brush-wand it comes with is excellent for applying this mascara. It scoops out the mascara easily (just be careful with the excess on the tip) and when you apply it to your lashes ... it combs, coats & separates each lash. I applied 2-3 coats to my lashes below. I didn't experience any sticking or clumping. But if you go past 3 coats, expect some clumping on the tips of your lashes. Also, this mascara dries SUPER FAST! So do your 1-3 coats quickly or risk tugging with additional coats. The LENGTHENING effect this mascara gives your lashes is ah-mazing. I was like WOW...will my lashes reach my eyebrows? LOL They weren't lying, when they said it increases length by 2700%!!! Volume? Not so much. But you can see my before & after below. What I'm reviewing is NOT the full size! While placing my order at Sephora, they offered a sample deluxe size for 100pts. So this was a great way to try it. How does it compare to my current & favorite mascara (UD Perversion)? Tarteist Lash Paint is Sweet in my book, but Urban Decay's Perversion gives me a "cleaner" look. This is more EDGY, but I think that is what Tarte was going for! Between the cool splashes of paint on the packaging, super blackness of the mascara and spikier look ... it's very COACHELLA. It's a really good mascara, but you may have something similar in your makeup arsenal. If not, TODAY is the last day of Tarte's 30% Off Sale! Get it on sale or try and score a sample of it.
