Today’s review is about a longtime favorite product of mine – TARTE’s Lights, Camera, Splashes Mascara!
As a teen in the 90’s I gravitated towards the ever popular green and pink tube of Maybelline Great Lash – but oh boy, have I learned since then! In my 20+ years of being a beauty lover and my almost 10 years being immersed directly IN the beauty industry I estimate I’ve tried about 100 different brands and types of mascara. So the fact that whenever I’m not being sent a new product to try and I’m in need of mascara I pick up a tube of Lights, Camera, Lashes EVERY time is saying a lot!
Now I’ve got to say that this mascara is my ‘everyday use’ mascara. It won’t give you sky high glossy, jet black, touching your forehead, lashes (I’ve got other products for that which I’ll share in the future!) but you (likely) don’t want a mascara that daring in your every day routine anyway – you want nice, clump-free, definition that doesn’t flake or give you raccoon eyes after only a few hours of wearing it – and Lights, Camera, Lashes will make you proud.
The tube itself is this really cool, quilted packaging that DOESN’T ROLL OFF YOUR COUNTER!! SO key because how often have we put our mascara down to wipe off a stray bit, or curl your lashes…and it rolls right off the counter?! But awesome packaging aside, this mascara is great. For those of you who are swimmers or criers Lights, Camera, SPLASHES is also available and is the waterproof version (disclaimer: as I am not a swimmer, nor much of a crier, I have not tried this particular product).
Now, the bad news…this mascara is a bit on the pricey side…it’ll set you back about $25 and as you all should be doing, mascara should be replaced every 3-4 months so this may be a bit of a bite in the bank account. I personally think it’s worth it. I have other products I prefer on the ‘lower end’ of the scale so splurging for a particular product which always comes through is worth it.
