Aside from the brilliant play of words Tarte used in the name of this mascara (love me a pun), the Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara boasts four major qualities; Tarte says this mascara is ” a lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning mascara infused with olive esters to condition, treat, and protect lashes.”
So how does it deliver on those four promised features?…
Volume: 10/10 on the volume front. This baby turns it up to 11. I’m not sure how much the primer has to do with it; I have used the mascara on its own before and don’t notice much of a difference with the primer added into the equation.
Length: 8/10. Whilst it’s not the most lengthening mascara I own, it definitely provides dark pigment right to the very tip of my lashes and doesn’t wear off during the day. So all in all, it ain’t bad.
Curl: 12/10. This is my FAVOURITE mascara for giving my short lashes dat curl. I think this would be ideal for anyone that has down-turned or straight lashes as it maintains the curl throughout the whole day. Add in an eyelash curler and you’ll have curl for days.
Conditioning: ?/10. Tbh, I haven’t noticed any difference in the condition of my lashes at all. Although, I’m not really sure what I’m looking for. So imma leave this one blank. It’s not like it made my lashes worse, like they didn’t fall out or anything though so…I look for that quality in a mascara.
(little extra note from me) Colour: This is the blackest mascara I own. All the pigment baby. It is just SO black. I LOVE IT.
