Fake a full night's sleep with this insta-brightening eyeliner. A makeup artist trick for bigger, brighter eyes, the twist-up creamy-gel eyeliner glides on smoothly and neutralizes the inner rim with longwearing, matte nude pigment powered by aloe, antioxidants and none of the icky, bad stuff. You can also use it to brighten the inner corner and brow bone and blend your look using the built-in smudger.

Skinvigorating ingredients:
  • Vitamin A: Antioxidant that retains moisture and helps protect against free radical damage
  • Vitamin E: Natural preservative that also acts as an emollient and antioxidant
  • Aloe leaf extract: Known for its soothing, healing and antiseptic properties

Benefits:
  • Vegan friendly
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Ophthalmologist tested
  • Safe for contact lens wearers

A Tarte Eyeliner for every look!
Apply to the lower inner rim and inner corner of the eyes for a wide-awake effect. It can also be used to sculpt and underscore the brow for balanced dimension and a bright, youthful look. Use the built-in smudger to soften and blend.

For enhanced drama, pair it with Sex Kitten Eyeliner, applying the black liner on the upper and lower lashline. On the lower lashline, blend the edges with your inner rim highlight for the most natural look.

        It really feels heavy and cakes on compared to other brands I have used I think it's a little pricey for how little it does

        Comments about Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlight:

        I put this on the waterline under my eyes.
        It looked like a flesh toned matte coverage (full.) Witiin two hours, it all slid down to the under eye area in a central clump.It also stuck to two eyelashes in a tiny glob. Yuck! I know of two other better ones. Try Physician's Formula Champain eye liner. It has many uses, and blends with your skin and waterline, and under eye make up. Make Up For Ever is waterproof, white. Maybelline makes a pastel pink Long Last eyeliner that is waterproof, and stays on my waterline. Sorry about typos in other two reviews! I hurried.

        Comments about Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlight:

        I've had my eye on this for well over a year now. And when tarte had the 10times the points for platinum members i went ahead and bought it. Its super cute,i love that it has a smudger on one end. Ive been using the essence nude eyeliner. The tarte one does stay on a lot longer, but definitely wears off fast. I think it does its job but I think the price is kinda high for a nude liner. Considering how fast it wears off you have to reapply often so i think it will run out pretty fast. If your a huge tarte fan i would recommend it but im sure there's other nude liners out there for a much cheaper price.

          I was looking for an eyeliner that I could put on my water line to open my eyes up a little more. I didn't want to use black, and white stands out too much for my personal preference. I was excited to get this product and try it out. It really does do everything that everyone has described in the reviews. Now I'm not sure I could do without this product!

                  Comments about Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlight:

                  This is one of those products where I was initially happy and over time the slow burn of my love of this amazing pencil grew stronger and stronger.
                  Works great for:
                  Waterline
                  Highlighting along lash line
                  Eyebrow cleanup
                  Bridge of nose
                  Spot Conceal
                  Nose crease
                  Concealing under-eye circles!!! The peachy yellow fleshy shade and size is perfect to run that line right along the point where my undereye area sinks in. It STAYS PUT and it doesn't sink into creases. I also use it to mask redness in my nose creases and conceal the bridge of my nose where my glasses and nose strips tend to leave redness.
                  I have purchased a plethora of concealers and color correctors over the years and this has replaced them all.
                  The only con I can think of is it takes a little bit of effort to blend, but not too hard considering the staying power of this product.
