Most Helpful Positive Review Does not run
Best waterproof mascara I've come across in a long time! And it looks great...for me personally wearing mascara is a challenge because I have a lot of oil around my eyes and eyelids. Sounds knarley but hey, at least I don't have wrinkles! I've tried countless big name brands where the makeup reps "promise" me they understand my problem and gurantee their product won't run and within 30 mins the mascara is running giving me the appearance of bags under my eyes. My eyelashes tend to grow straight down so I heat my eyelash curler with my hairdryer before curling. Now with lights, camera, splashes, and a few dabs of primer potion, I can wear mascara all day without it running or my lashes drooping. Highly recommend this mascara! So happy I tried it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrible
I'm really unhappy that I let the salesperson in the store influence my choice. I've loved all of the other tarte products I've ever purchased but this stuff is just worse than no mascara. The brush has almost no bristles and the packaging is really annoying and wasteful. It allows way too much product that is way too sticky on to the brush. It basically makes your lashes in to shiny spikes.Even with two differnt types of makeup remover and wipes it took almost TWO days to get off. I wish I could return.

I bought this mascara for lengthening of my thick but short very blonde lashes. While it does make my lashes black, it does nothing else for them. The product does not lengthen at all. I am not impressed with this Tart waterproof mascara and will never buy it again. Would not recommend it.

I would use it as mascara. It really makes your eyes pop!
Waterproof ruins it
Maggie B from Grand Rapids, MI
Not as good as the non-waterproof version. This one doesn't add as much volume and doesn't build very well (with immediate multiple coats).
Good mascara for beach trip.
Jojo from Georgia
Doesn't smudge or run. Lasts all day. Would like it to go on a little thicker with more and longer bristles on the wand. Takes a couple passes to get enough on my lashes.

Mascara is so dry you can barely see it. It requires multiple applications. On the plus side, I wore it swimming and it stayed put. I'm going back to Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara.

I usually use Lancôme Drama and didn't have time to go to the mall so I got this, it works really well wish the brush had an curve in it but still an good product
Kaitlyn from Harrisburg, PA
This is my favorite mascara. I've been looking for one that keeps my lashes curled up and that lasts all day. All the other mascaras I've tried are too wet so my lashes don't stay curled up after application. But that doesn't happen with this mascara and it lasts me an entire 12 hour hospital shift!

Always looking for something to make my lashes to look full and thick and now I have found it.
Not worth the price

I think this could withstand a hurricane and not run!!

Maggie from Moore, Oklahoma
I have been searching for a great mascara that doesn't mess with my contacts and waterproof that doesn't flake. Let me tell you it took a while! But this stuff is amazing!! Absolutely great for contact wearers!

First mascara that didnt give me racoon eyes
Amberly from Ct
It never clumps my lashes!!!
Mols from Milwaukee, WI
I wouldn't buy it again. The liquid is too thin so it gets on skin. The brush is a standard brush so it doesn't lengthen or bring volume to my lashes. Lashes clump with it.
Stays in place, but...

I wanted to try a waterproof mascara because I'm having issues with smudging while wearing a mask and eye shield all day at work. I'm generally not a fan of waterproof because of the extra effort it takes to remove it, and I have very thin wispy lashes (can't afford to lose lashes while removing mascara!). So, as a lover of Tarte Big Ego mascara, I decided to try this.
The verdict? It stayed in place well. But the wand does not do anything to volumize my lashes the way Big Ego does, even with a lash primer. And the shape of the wand is a little awkward for handling. I'll probably stick to Big Ego and deal with smudges for now.

I actually returned this product. It was very much volume and it made my lashes feel hard and sticky

I have been using the Tarte lights, camera, LASHES mascara for years and love it. However I have been wanting something waterproof for summer so wanted to get the lights, camera, SPLASHES mascara by Tarte hoping to get the same product but with the waterproof feature. The brush in the SPLASHES is smaller and does not coat your lashes as well as the LASHES mascara. I'm unsure why the brush was changed in this version as it takes MANY coats to get minimal product onto your lashes. The brush on the LASHES line was something I loved and was disappointed in the new applicator. Then throughout 1 evening (not even 5 hours) of wearing the waterproof line, it ran down under my under eyes. I went to dinner and it was not overly hot or raining so this would definitely not hold up in normal summer day time wear. Will be returning this and trying something else for the summer and going back to the original LASHES line after the season.
