Take your sultry, flashy lashes to the extreme with this amped up, ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies lashes for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly! Powered by Tarte's proprietary triple black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won't dry out, flake or budge.

The custom-engineered, dual-molded brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum volume without clumping.

  • Provitamin B5: Vitamin B derivative that helps treat and thicken lashes
  • Beeswax: A protective barrier between the skin and the environment that has been known to naturally stimulate collagen production
  • Mineral pigments: Soothe and soften lashes

Ophthalmologist tested. Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten.
First, apply the perfect amount of mascara using the denser side of the wand with the short, dense soft-flex bristles, wedging at the base of lashes and pulling through the tip in zig zag motions. Next rotate the brush 180 degree to comb through lashes with the longer firma-flex bristles. Apply 2 coats to achieve maximum length and volume.

Tarte Tip: Before applying, you can tap the brush on the top of the tube to feel the difference between the bristles. For best results, remove with an oil-based eye makeup remover.

Comments about Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara:

I bought this after being a long time user of Clinique's Chubby Lash since my local Ulta doesn't carry Clinique and I was in a pinch. It doesn't any more for my lash's than Ulta store brand does (I received the orange tube of Ulta brand in a sample recently and used that for a bit when my usual ran out). It does flake and smudge though, and by the end of the day I'm having to wipe mascara off from under my eyes. Plus it's difficult to remove and in the morning I look rather frightening with the black around my eyes. Won't purchase again.

      I used the tartiest lady paint mascara before this one and I loved it! I didn't think this one was that great.. it was a little too much with the double sided brush.. also sometimes it's too rough.. I poked my eye once with it and couldn't stop tearing up.

              Comments about Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara:

              The brush is terrible. You use side 1 first then side 2. Brush is sharp and pokes your eye. I had a hard time getting this on without also getting it in my eyelids. A real mess. It takes at least 3 coats (while getting it all over my upper lid) to look full then had to go back and clean up all the spots it got on my lids. Too much effort for no special look. Not worth the money. I tried it for 2 days hoping to get the hang of it but ended up returning.

                  I was surprised and disappointed in this product. I've had goid luck with Tarte products in the past; not this one. It is sticky and contains (I think coal tar) ingredients that set off an allergic reaction. My eyes would be sticky and gooey within minutes. The brush is spiky and doesn't distribute the product well. The mascara clumps and forms balls that can only be dislodged with an oil (I used coconut oil and/or jojoba. Coconut worked better) at the end of the day, it was difficult to remove. I would say to Tarte, if asked, "please remove this,from the shelves and reformulated or go back to the drawing board. 5his is definitely a bust."

                      • Q:

                        Is the brush large? If someone has it could they measure the length? I have difficulty applying mascara that isn't my Great Lash Lotsa Lashes because most other mascaras I try have a brush that's way too large, but I want to replace it with something cruelty free!

                          This is a your typical size lash brush but we recommend trying our lights, camera, lashes double-ended mascara. It has our best-selling mascara with a great lash magnifying brush and then a tiny precision brush with a bottom-lash enhancing formula on the opposite end.
