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.

  • 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 like a lot of lash.. I've used Tarteist for a few tubes worth now and LOVE it, so I thought I'd try this one, slightly longer bristled brush, but besides that I couldn't see much difference. Ugh.. it only lengthens, and still, not very well.. my lashes are straight and mediocre even after a few coats. I'm not a fan at all. Plus, when applying, it gets ALL over my top lid. I have to really scrub that off once I'm all done. I'll definitely be going back to my tarteist which gives length and volume too!

      Comments about Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara:

      I received an Ulta giftcard and decided to treat myself to a lux mascara, as I was in need of a fresh tube. I was walking around, and just couldn't choose (there are so many options!). I asked a group of (very nice) Ulta workers for a mascara that would lengthen and define my lashes, and overall make them look really good. I also wanted it to be cruelty free. They immediately suggested this mascara, saying it makes your lashes big and luscious. Sounds great, right? I thought so too. I went home and tried this on, looking at online directions of how to use the confusingly labeled wand. It required two coats, per directions. After I was finished, my lashes looked awful! I didn't think it was even possible for lashes to look that clumpy! The mascara did not hold my curl, as it was a wet formula. My lashes looked liked thick spider legs from root to tip, and overall looked very messy. As the day went on, my top lashes kept getting tangled in my lower lashes because there was so much product on them! I couldn't wait to take it off. Taking it off took me 15 minutes of rubbing my eyes, and many lashes were lost. Eventually coconut oil did the trick. To anyone looking into buying this mascara, only get it if you plan on going clubbing. Seriously.

      Comments about Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara:

      Just wish it didn't clump or go on with a "sticky" look. Otherwise it lengthened and gave my lashes the volume I was looking for. But since it does clump a little I don't think I would buy again.

          Comments about Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara:

          I actually went into the store for Better Than Sex and had it in my hand to purchase, when an employee strongly recommended this mascara and almost insisted that I try it, claiming that "I'll love it." So I reluctantly switched out the Better Than Sex I had in my hand for this. I'm truly disappointed. I should've just gone with my gut. And the girl should've been happy that I was getting what I wanted......not what she wanted. I didn't ask for her opinion.

                      The Lights, Camera, Flashes Mascara not only delivers more volume but it also has an amazing double-sided brush! The shorter, denser bristle side coats and plumps every lash while the other side's long bristles lengthen and define for a fluttery, clump-free finish!

                    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.
