Tarte Rejuvelash Review

On occasion I run into mascaras that clump my lashes together in a gluey mess. Indeed, I’m sure you know the culprits guilty of this unseemly sin! I truly hate clumpy, gross looking lashes and the worst part is when you have a full eye look on and it seems almost impossible to “declump” the lashes with a mascara comb. Sigh. The trials and tribulations of mascara.

Here in lays the solution to all your woes or so Tarte tells us! Tarte Rejuvelash is supposed to help me rid myself of the nightmare of clumps.

Does it work?

Click it to find out!

Tarte Rejuvelash is one of those things that makes you scratch your head and go, “hmmm do I really need to spend $16 on a declumping medium?” Doesn’t that sounds fancy? Declumping medium. Whoa. I think it’s worthy of my beauty arsenal actually as it’s saved my lashes and eye looks numerous times since purchasing it.

What is it?

It’s a mini, clear formula in a tube that looks like a mini mascara which contains all sorts of important bits that Tarte tells us about but frankly it’s simply an interesting little tool to have stashed away for days that clumps come out to play.

The scenario:

You’ve just complete an incredible smoky eye and you’re ready to finish it off with a quick curl of your lashes and a ton of mascara to make all that dramatic eye shadow pop. You curl and begin applying mascara…gasp! It clumps up your lashes and you’re left looking like you have a uni-lash (one single lash instead of several). Whip out Tarte Rejuvelash and slowly comb it through that uni lash to separate your lashes and clean up the mess your mascara made.

I find this works better than a simple lash comb because it’s a wet application. The applicator is slightly dampened with all that important formula I was telling you about above plus the applicator is a complicated little creation that allows you to glide through lashes and separate them precisely. Now a lash comb takes a fair bit of work and sometimes makes a bigger mess than the one you’re already sporting however Rejuvelash seems to work considerably better because of the interesting, emollient formula and cool brush.

The formula also happens to soften my lashes so I tend to use it when my lashes are feeling a bit stiff after a coat of intense waterproof mascara.

I dunno if $16 is something you’d want to splurge on but I find that Tarte Rejuvelash is a good one to keep around for cleaning up possible mascara messes when they crop up!

The Muse’s 10 Must Have Beach Bag Essentials

10+beach+bag+essentials

The weather isn’t quite right yet for the beach or the pool sigh. If you live in New York you’ll understand exactly what I mean as it’s not much of a Summer here in the Big Apple. However, this doesn’t stop me from thinkin’ up what I need for my beach bag or in my case pool bag as the Muse doesn’t do the beach to well (seaweed, sand, eek!).

So here’s a few items that are making a starring appearance inside my beach bag this Summer!

Everyone wants beach hair, everyone. Tousled, windblown locks that are soft, seductive, and sexy. Indeed, beach hair is where it’s at! A great item to toss in your beach bag for a full head of alluring hair would be Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist, smells just like tropics plus I just really dig on the name.

Philip+B

When you’re at the beach or pool you want clean, natural makeup that wears well and wears long. Morgen Schick Cheek and Lip Stain is my go to for long wearing color on my cheeks which is waterproof and incredibly flattering for a sunkissed glow!


If you’re at the beach and you’ve SPF’ed yourself to death as is the Muse’s routine you probably won’t get much of a tan but you can flatter your pale white skin with hints of iridescent pink on face, eyes, and cheeks with a dollop of Eyeko Cream!

eyeko+cream

Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers used to be my all time favorite lip treatment. Don’t overlook these little tubes of pigmented joy for a Summer lip look that’s natural and laced with SPF.

Tarte+Cosmetics

Keep your hair conditioned and protected from the sun with Blossom Under Cover Conditioning Mist with SPF. Frizz be gone!

Blossom+SPF

Eyeko Face Off Wipes aren’t great for removing a full load of face makeup but they are nice for toting around in your purse and freshening up your face with. Each box contains 10 individually wrapped wipes!

eyeko+face+off

A little touch up of cooling mist for your face is always a pleasure when sitting out in the hot sun. Pack up some Evian Mist in the travel friendly can to mist your skin with to keep it fresh and dewy!

evian+mist

I’m the first one to admit that Loccitane Citrus Verbena Summer Fragrance tends to not linger very long however I find that in the Summer heat it manages to give off a very subtle, fresh lemony scent that I find rather ideal for beach or pool lazying!


Give your face a kiss of sun with Eyeko Face Tint! Amps up your Summer tan or gives your pale white skin a touch of Summer sun.

Hope you enjoyed my picks for hauling in my beach bag this Summer!

What are some items you stash in your beach bag?

Tarte multiplEYE First Impressions

Some of you may be sighing in relief and excitement over the brand new Tarte multiplEYE! I’ve been testing it out for a few days now and will be bringing you a full review in about a month’s time but for now I’ll give you a quickie sneak peek of what it’s all about!

Picture+029

Tarte multiplEYE is a natural lash enhancer (paraben free). This liquid formula is meant for application daily to lengthen, strengthen, and thicken lashes.

Tarte promises 152% change in the appearance of your lash length with multiplEYE. The product contains Hydroplant peptide which is clinically proven to give the appearance of longer, fuller lashes naturally using soy and amino acid proteins combine to form an essential super-protein base that fortifies and nourishes your lashes.

According to reports Tarte multiplEYE test 100% of subjects reported an increase of lash softness and appearance of lash length while 90% experience an increase in lash thickness.

Some of the benefits of Tarte multiplEYE is it’s easily obtained at your local Sephora, no need for a prescription. It does not contain parabens, prostaglandin, or any other harmful ingredients so you can feel comfortable and safe applying this to lashes that are so close to your eyes.

The product comes housed in a square tube similar to that of a mascara tube. It’s a clear formula and has a straight line lip style brush for application. The product is meant for once a day application on clean skin at the lash line as you would apply an eyeliner. However, for added results you’ll want to brush directly onto the lashes but do be careful not to get the product into your eyes. You’ll wait 60 seconds for the product to dry before applying makeup. I find it’s best to apply at night as it makes it another part of your night time regime and you aren’t worrying about dry down time during a busy morning makeup application rush.

I’ve been using it a week so far but won’t post results until at least a month’s time. If your lashes are stubby, weak, break off easily, or you just desire fuller, stronger lashes, Tarte multiplEYE may hold the key to bliss!

Check back soon for an update.
