IMPORTANT (not really, but you know what I mean): There’s a Sephora VIB sale in November, so this week I’m highlighting some of my favorite makeup workhorses that I think are worthy of your wish list.
If you have stick-straight, skinny lashes like mine, you’ll totally understand the magic behind this product. Like the fabulous feline and the feisty toddler who boss me around, my lashes do not listen to me… Every morning, I go through the same routine. I crimp my lashes with my curler and say a prayer to the beauty goddesses. “Please, please hold this curl!”
Then, my lashes straighten out.
I spent decades looking for a mascara that would hold a curl while boosting my roots so my lashes could soar high up to the heavens above — and yes, I wanted these things without having to deal with a trail of flakes on my cheeks or blackened smears smudging my lower lash line.
Well, love, this is it. 🤗
I’ve mentioned Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara a few times before, but I haven’t given it the love it deserves.
It’s been around for-everrrrrr, and I always return to it because it hoists every last lash (even the ones on the outer corner, which are the droopiest of the droopy ones for me), and then stretches them out so the tips extend way beyond their natural length.
Plus, the volume? Dialed up! Like YSL Faux Cils, but a tinge less intense at the roots.
Lights Camera Lashes never clumps, is blacker than black, and the bushy brush combs ensures that no lash is left behind. It’s a solid all-rounder and a must for anyone searching for a mascara that does everything — lifting, lengthening, separation, curling and volume. A 0.24-oz. wand is usually $23, but with the 20% VIB discount you can grab it for $18.40. The 15% Beauty Insider discount knocks it down to $19.55.
