Project Focus 10: Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara

IMG_8086I’m doing a Project Focus 10 with three beauty bloggers. I am trying to finish up 10 products in the span of 10 weeks. A new PF10 post on any updates along with a product review of one of the products will appear every Monday. It’s a challenge for me because the products must be ones I’d never done a full review on before but are still on the market!

Quick update on PF10 progress:

  1. Lorac Pro – Back to using this palette all week.
  2. Urban Decay eye liner – Have really neglected this product. I guess I’m not a huge fan of eye liners, but when I do use them, I think they make a big difference in an eye look.
  3. The Body Shop hand cream – I used this a couple of times this week.
  4. Tarte mascara – See review below!
  5. NYX lip gloss – I use this everyday because it’s what is in my bag at all times and I really enjoy the look and formula.
  6. Rimmel concealer – Used it all week and love it.
  7. Aquaphor – I used this everyday and every night.
  8. NYM sea salt spray – I use this when I am putting waves in my hair to hold and texturize the look.
  9. Batiste hint of color – You’ll see these in my Feb Empties! 1 down, people!
  10. Clinique eye cream – I use this daily, night and/or day.

Here’s a review on 7/10 PF10 products:

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara

IMG_8103Tarte Lights Camera Lashes is a volumizing mascara.

A lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning mascara infused with olive esters to condition, treat, and protect lashes.

Packaging: Unique purple snakeskin packaging

Formula: Volumizing mascara

My thoughts

Let me preface this review by saying that I am not a huge fan of mascaras, and they are probably my least favorite makeup product. Blasphemy, I know!

I actually thought this mascara performed well. I have short lashes that don’t hold a curl as well as I’d like them to, and this formula held up my curl all day. I am very impressed with how it volumizes my lashes without clumping. I do not think this is the best mascara in the world, but for the time being, I was happy I was able to experience a mascara that actually held my curl all day.

What’s your favorite mascara at the moment?

Be sure to follow these bloggers for their Project Focus 10 as well!

  1. I love mascaras! They make a huge difference to my makeup look (IMO anyway). One day last month I completely forgot to put on mascara and went to work… I only realized when I went to the washroom and something looked “off”. I asked my coworker and she said that I looked really young, haha. I’ve not tried the Tarte mascara but I’ve heard lots of raves for it – maybe I’ll get a sample one of these days… I hate paying more than $10 for a mascara!
    Awesome job with finishing one of the PF10 items! Woohoo!

  3. This is my fave non drug store mascara. I usually save it for special occasions since I use other ones as well. I’ve been trying to “practice” with pot based liners lately. Eh, I’m still not a fan of liner, but maybe that’ll change.

  4. I have a sample of this that I tried, but I have stupid lashes that uncurl with the slightest bit of humidity, so I need to try it again with a layer of wp mascara under 🙂
