tarte lights, camera, LASHES Mascara Review

tarte light,camera, lashes mascara
I've tried this mascara on and off over the years but have never done an official review. Ulta frequently has it as a deal and steal during their 21 Days of Beauty events which are held in March and September which, by the way, get me every time! Be on the look out for that great beauty event. 

Let me start by saying my mascara preference is a lengthening mascara that defines each lash, goes on smooth with no clumping and no lashes sticking together. Some people like volume and a thick, spiky, Twiggy lash look that just so happens to be hot for fall 2017. But, that's not for me.

Tarte lights, camera, lashes is a vegan, 4 in 1 mascara meaning it's supposed to:
1. lengthen
2. curl
3. volumize
4. condition

This black mascara has a purple leather looking sleeve with a snake skin print that is made from man made materials (in China). It's vegan, not tested on animals and has nice ingredients like olive oil and rice bran wax. Tarte recommends a wiggle of the brush as you apply for the best application results. The brush is a classic looking mascara brush.

I see that lots of people love this mascara and give it high reviews. I want to love this mascara but it doesn't live up to the hype for me.

1. lengthen- it doesn't do much lengthening for me.
2. curl- it doesn't curl my difficult to curl lashes.
3. volumize- it does volumize but it is clumpy and the lashes stick together.
4. condition- it feels okay on my lashes but I can't say that I noticed my lashes are in better condition. Maybe I have to use it for a longer period of time.

For me, it doesn't go on smooth. You can see the small clumps of mascara. If I apply another coat after it has dried to freshen it up, it flakes. It is a messy removal but that isn't a 'don't buy it' factor for me. Many mascaras have a messy removal.

I have purchased this mascara more than once as I already mentioned, so I don't hate it. Perhaps I would get better application results using a different brush.
