I own and test a lot of mascaras. Today I gave away Urban Decay’s Lash Perversion, Smashbox Xtreme Lash, Maybelline’s Push Up Drama and something else. I still own a lot of mascaras, but my favorite since November last year has been a tiny travel size freebie from a makeup set: Tarte’s Tarteist Lash Paint. This tiny tube has lasted 3 months now, used nearly every day and still going strong. I have bought the full size for when it runs out.
Why do I love it so much? Compared to my other Favorite Too Faced Better Than Sex, it does not really clump, as it doesn’t contain fibers it also doesn’t create spider legs. It does evenly coat the lashes making them thicker, and impart a bit of length (not too much), but above all it’s dependable. It stays on reliably all day, never transferring, never smudging,never flaking, never causing embarrassment.
