Product Highlights
“I use this mascara everyday. Your lashes still feel like lashes when you use this. It says your lashes get 464% more volume or something like that which I believe. My lashes also look so long and separated. I use many Tarte products, it is my favorite brand, because they have no parabens! If you don't know what parabens are, they are said to cause cancer and they are in a lot of cosmetic products. Tartes whole line has no preservatives or parabens. They are natural and just feel good to use. My lashes still bend and don't flake at all. I set my under eye well with a good powder so it never smudges. Great product and worth the price tag. Love.” in reviews
“...thin and short lashes always come out looking fantastic. I find it to be lengthening without weighing my lashes down and volumizing without clumping. It is defiantly worth it's price. ” in reviews
“I used this as a sample size and it was so amazing it works really well lengthens and separates and doesn't clump up ” in reviews
“This is honestly the best waterproof mascara I have ever used. Its lengthening, volumizing and isn't clumpy at all. I've been on the search for the best waterproof mascara since i was 12. No joke. I discovered Tarte Lights camera lashes mascara through a sample set, then saw this waterproof version in an ULTA ad! I love the original, so I thought I would give this one a try. Not a single waterproof mascara I have ever tried has ever even been close to the same as the original. I have to say this formula may be better! Not to mention, such cute packaging! I don't use this everyday because it is such a great waterproof, it is sometimes a little difficult to come off. I once went 4 days on one coat of this baby after multiple showers and a makeup wipe or two. You have to use waterproof remover, but it is so worth it! I started using this mascara again after I began a swimming and aquatics unit in Gym. I go in the heavily chlorinated pool every day, no goggles, and I would get out and not only no raccoon eyes, but it looked just as nice as when I got in! I began using a waterproof eye makeup regimen to same some precious time after class. I recommend using this mascara, Make Up Forever's Aqua Eyes Liners, and MAC Paint Pots. (For extra staying power, don't forget Urban Decay Primer Potion!) This will be my go to summer beach mascara for sure! A true Holy Grail Product.” in reviews

Love, love, love this mascara! Did I mention that I love it??? :) Seriously, I've tried a zillion mascaras and this is by far my fav! Here's why: (1) This separates every lash so they never look goopy (like some other brands leave your lashes.) (2) My lashes look longer and curled after I apply this. (3) This actually nourishes my lashes so they look even better the longer I use it! For me this is the perfect every day mascara. Just keep in mind that this is not waterproof, but Tarte does make a different version called "Lights, Camera, Splashes" that is waterproof. ** In the image you will see I have written Jan 20 on the tube. I highly recommend you do this if you use multiple types or have several tubes of mascara in your beauty arsenal. It's easy to forget how long you've been using a tube or how old it is and you shouldn't use a mascara longer than 3 months because bacteria can be transferred from your eye into the tube.

Purchased at: Sephora
As I’ve evolved from the person I was who wore makeup in my teens and early 20s, I’ve realized that my needs and expectations of mascara have changed slowly but surely as well. Now that I spend the majority of my awake time “adulting,” I’ve found that the Smokey, thick sweeping fringe lashes of my Vegas clubbing heyday are no longer the goal. What I am looking for today from a mascara product is one that opens my eyes, makes them look youthful, refreshed with long feathery lashes. I found this mascara through one of those “10 minis + 1 voucher for a full size mascara” sets sold by Sephora and it was a slam dunk for me as a soon as I tried it, and I loved it more and more each subsequent time I put it on. The buildable formula is so versatile and lets you go from day to night after a few extra coats + a lash curler. An A+ , 5 Star, must have mascara product for someone like me. tarte™ lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara

This mascara is amazing this gives your lashes length and a touch of volume making them look natural. I love this mascara after I use my eye lash curler to give my lashes and extra boost. This last throughout the whole day from a work shift or off day running errands. tarte™ lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara #itsourparty

This is now my go to brand after many brands. I love everything about it! It doesn't irritate eyes, never clumps, goes on smooth, doesn't smear under eyes even though it's not waterproof. I like that it's not waterproof because it washes off easily with water alone in the shower. I love that the ingredients aren't harsh. A tube could last me 2 months easily. But I've learned a little trick! If you put in about 10 drops of regular or lubricating eyedrops it will help clumping mascara on brush & inside of tube become smooth again! It's amazing! The mascara performs almost as well as a fresh tube! I doubt you could get good results with a waterproof formula in which case you might add castor oil drops I read about as well!

I’m trying out a new mascara every few days and yesterday and today are this. What I love: without curling, this mascara sticks well, easy to maneuver, and gives me the defined spidery lashes I love. It’s amazing at lengthening and defining bottom lashes also. Nice we formula to really coat every lash. What I dislike: it turns crunchy and hard and can be harsh on your lashes with removal. It does turn a bit flaky, but only if you touch your eyes a lot. Overall, I love what it does for my lashes and I like a chunky mascara. If you prefer soft looking lashes, this is not your guy.

I don't always have time to put on falsies. So I had to find a mascara that worked for fast paced days. I got this as a Christmas gift 2 years ago. I've been using it every since. It is worth the price. It usually lasts me a while before I have to go buy another one. It makes my lashes look longer and fuller. It holds on to my lashes for hours in humid weather. And I have also cried in it. It didn't ruin my eyes with black stuff all over. Plus I always get compliments on my lashes. I will continue to use this mascara for as long as it's available.

The first thing I will say about this product, is YES IT IS WORTH THE MONEY! I'm not one to spend more than $20 on a mascara, but this one is worth every penny. The name says it all. After using the mascara, you'll want to capture the beauty! It will make your eyes look bold, natural, and beautiful. People will question if your eyelashes are real or not. One layer is all you need, no going over it two or three times. The straight, narrow brush will gently lengthen and darken your eyelashes without overdoing it. No clumping, no flaking, no mess. It's also one of the EASIEST mascaras to remove. Of all the mascaras I've tried (which is a lot), I always go back to this one.

I received this mascara free when I bought a bunch of other tarte makeup. I tried it a few times, and every time was the same results. My lashes looked pretty nice, very individually separated without looking weird or clumpy. It looked like a very natural pretty, which is very different from my normal type of mascara which goes as long and bold as possible. The only downside, which was pretty bad in my book anyway, was that there was a good amount of fallout each time that I used it which made me realize that it wasn’t just a one or two time thing. If you can handle the fallout and your into a more natural mascara look, this may be a good option for you.

This is another homerun for tarte, they are a pretty much either a completely love must have or it's not kinda like too faced. I use this along with a mascara primer too. I live for this one and the pay off is so worth it most people think I'm wearing false lashes but I use 4 different types of mascaras along with a primer and I don't need to wear false lashes but what I would recommend is to warm up your mascara before use at least this trick has helped me alot over the years I get a million times better result if I do that than just putting it on. I hope this trick helps let me know what you guys think about this trick I would live top gear feedback on it
