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.

          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.

          Comments about Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlight:

          This eye highlight is great. I was really surprised. I had not read very many good reviews, but because I have a lot of faith in the brand, I bought it anyway. I simply apply it to my lower waterline for my everyday natural look and I really like the way it looks. When I'm feeling fancy, I'll blend it up beyond my waterline to make my eyes appear wider.
          It does fade throughout the day, but I also don't just sit in an office looking pretty. I feel like the color is not suitable for all skin tones, but it works for me and it could work for many other people if they know how to use it.

                    I just bought this out of curiosity, wondering if it could really make me look more awake on those mornings after not sleeping enough and getting up early. Maybe I did not know how to use it, but once I applied it to my lower water line, it looked too weird. Maybe wrong application or color, IDK, but I won't buy it again. I still love ULTA!
