Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes! Mascara Review
From the Brand:
your lashes to the extreme with this ultra-black mascara that
lengthens, curls and magnifies for an intensified look proven to
increase lash volume by 752% instantly!
Product Performance: Take your sultry, flashy lashes
to the extreme with this amped up, ultra-black mascara that lengthens,
curls and magnifies lashes for an intensified look proven to increase
lash volume by 752% instantly! Powered by tarte’s proprietary triple
black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length
and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won’t dry
out, flake or budge.
The custom-engineered, dual-molded
brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous
look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal
amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the
longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum
volume without clumping.
Powered By: Provitamin B5: vitamin B derivative that helps treat and thicken lashes. Beeswax:

known to naturally stimulate collagen production. Mineral pigments: soothe and soften lashes.

My Thoughts: This mascara sure has a lot to "say" about how amazing it is at volumizing. But since this is my review, this is what I have to say about how it really works. First, I can't believe it's taken me this long to even do a review on it since I've had it forever. I got it back in October as part of my Tarte Kit from QVC. I had to go back and look through my list of reviews to really convince myself that I hadn't done one yet. So sorry about that! Hopefully you haven't been patiently waiting all this time!
This mascara has a really unique dual sided brush that claims to volumize on one side and then comb through to separate on the other side. I find that the volumizing side does a really great job of adding a lot of volume with one coat. The separation side was ok, but it's kind of hard to tell the difference. The wand itself has two colors, but once it's coated in mascara, it's impossible to see. On the separation side the plastic bristles are only marginally longer and spaced too far apart in my opinion to really give great definition.
Final Verdict: Gives great volume, and I really like it but not as much as their Gifted mascara or their Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara.
