Tarte Lights Camera Splashes Summer 2014

What’s the best mascara every? If you said Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes you’d be right! And better still is Tarte repromoting it for Summer 2014 in a waterproof formula.

Ok, well, they always have Lights, Camera, Splashes hanging around but for Summer 2014 it does come in a limited edition packaging. And hey, if you never tried it here’s your chance to do so.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes! Waterproof Mascara

I’d like to make a note and tell Maureen please when you reintroduce this next Summer I’d like to see some LE packaging that’s NOT limited to the outer packaging girl! I’ll likely not toss this cute festive little box but I wouldn’t mind if the box packaging matched up with the mascara tube’s design too. Just sayin’!

I’ve actually stopped looking for my HG (holy grail) mascara because I’ve found it. Holy cow…shifty eyes…did I just say that?! No…the hunt is the fun part! I sometimes secretly hope I’ll NEVER find my HG products so I can continue to buy more makeup and try out new products. The hunt is the fun part. And the whining about how, “oh this is good but not HG material” is the second fun part haha!

No but seriously, aside from Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes and It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer I don’t really need anything else in my mascara loving life.

This is pretty basic mascara…regular old straight line brush, lightweight formula, doesn’t make my lashes terribly stiff or crunchy…! There’s really nothing amazing here but for some reason it WORKS and it WORKS well. It pulls my lashes up and out giving them GREAT length. Perhaps not a ton of volume but I’m not complaining because the length acts to give my lashes a fuller, longer look. Do like!

Now the regular formula works a treat for me but when Summer comes I switch it out for the Splashes formula to ensure it wears long and strong. I rarely have an issue with either the regular or Splash formula in regards to flaking, smudging, or smearing! Plus it removes easily at the end of a long hard day.

Loves this stuff.

It is and remains one of my favorite mascaras.

The limited edition Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes Mascara packaging will be available at Sephora, Sephora.com, Ulta, Ulta.com, and online at tartecosmetics.com. P.S. Don’t forget Tarte is 20% Off this week!

Do you use it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      does fairly good holding curl Christy, my lashes aren’t really stick straight but once curled and coated with this I’d say I can get through the day without them drooping on me 🙂

        Thank you! I’ve been having a hard time figuring out which will hold a curl well. I will take advantage of the sale on this one!

        • Isabella Muse

          If you curl your lashes this will def hold it well. My pleasure! Hope it works for you as well as it does for me 🙂

          • Isabella Muse

            my pleasure let me know how it works out for you 😀

    lights camera lashes is my HG too! i love it. ive never tried the waterproof formula, but i am definitely going to hit up the tarte sale tonight. did you see the new amazonian clay blush?

    I pick up multiple tubes of LCL when Ulta features it during their 21 Days of Beauty. I think the only thing I prefer more is the Gifted mascara, but if I can get LCL for practically half off, I’ll take it.

    I was a little disappointed to find the same old LCS tube in the pretty new box, but as long as it’s the same old LCS formula, I can’t complain.

    I love Lights Cameras Lashes! It is totally my HG mascara as well 🙂
