Rated 2 out of 5 by Kiie Wanted to love!
Although I had already ordered my go to Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara (never arrived and no longer available on QVC :( ), at the same time I added this "Smart Mascara" to the cart due to the fact that I love tarte products and the company's message - better for the earth and our skin, as well as because of the amazing value (3 mascaras for basically the price of 1).
Unfortunately, this mascara DID NOT work for me. Although the packaging is beautiful, the tube is quite large; the applicator brush is huge and the bristles are...wonky, making it difficult to get an even/precise application. After several minutes/attempts and brushing through my lashes to get an acceptable look, <1 hour later there were black smudges beneath both eyes (which continued throughout the workday).

I do use and love other Tarte items, and really wanted to love this too... but tried after my normal cleaning routine, and in fact, I didn't even use my moisturizer the evening I used this "smart mascara" because was short on time... anyway... went on ok, but had to use a lash comb to get blobs off lashes, once that was done, they looked beautiful... so I set face with powder and went out. Got home just under two hours later and checked myself in mirror and was horrified that I'd been out shopping looking like a raccoon!
I did give this a 2nd try the next day around my house, and had the same results sadly, so back they go and I get to pay for the return... at least they were on a terrific sale.
I should have known better... I normally use Waterproof Loreal or CG and never have to worry about looking like I just woke up and left my house without looking in the mirror! (should've remembered my media /Pro Make-up Artist friends who ALL swear by the CG and L mascaras!)
To be fair... I do have very long lashes (but not so thick anymore) and I do tend to have this problem with many non-waterproofs, but after reading so many great reviews about the Tarte staying put, I thought I'd like to try a natural product... maybe if it came in a waterproof?
But for a couple of bucks less and no shipping charges, I think I'll just keep going to cvs and get my old stand-by

Finally found a mascara that does all it promises.
No flakes, natural looking long lashes, no raccoon eyes.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nina4God Good for 20 days!
I bought this mascara because I have extremely sensitive eyes and it was recommended to me. It is fantastic for the first 20 days then its time to throw it away. I have worked in the cosmetics industry so I know how to handle and care for mascara's. This one dries out simply from exposing the wand to your eyelashes while applying it. If its in your budget to afford a mascara every 20 days, then this mascara is for you! My budget does not afford a 43.00 mascara every 20 days; This is not recommended!

I bought the 3 pack last during the holidays just to try. It's my first time using a Tarte product and I just fell in live with it! I've used It, Mally, Laura Geller, Bare Minerals, Givenchy and so far, nonephews of them has made my lashes fuller and longer with just 2 coats! I was intending to give the other as gifts but decided to keep all of them!!!

Since starting this brand of mascara, I am sold. Stays, no flaking, smearing. Absolutely the best and it is as natural a product for lashes as you can find. Given these as gifts to Daughter and Grand Daughter, they are now sold on it.

My eye lashes look the best they've ever looked❗️This is truly amazing mascara; thick and long lashes. I'm in love with this stuff. I put 2 coats on and OMG my lashes look fantastic. I gave this mascara to my daughter n law and she loves it too. We can't believe how great our lashes look‼️ It washes off quickly and looks great all day. Thanks QVC and Tarte❗️
