Most Helpful Positive Review A+++++++++++++
BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER USED. I swore by Better Than Sex until I tried this. It's 100x better. My lashes are long and thick but not clumpy. It looks like I am wearing falsies but nope, just this mascara. Everyone comments on how good my lashes look and I've brought my friends over to the dark side. Dark, long, thick lashes that is. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Most Helpful Critical Review one of the worst mascaras I've ever used
I've tried dozens of volumizing mascaras ranging from high to low end and this is easily one of the worst. The formula is not deep black at all, but more of a grayish black. The consistency is sticky, heavy, dry, and difficult to layer. Even with a lash comb, it was impossible to sculpt lashes or break up the clumps, and my curl completely disappeared after one coat. My lashes are naturally fairly thick and long, and this mascara made them look so much worse than they actually are by clumping them together into wiry, anemic-looking spider legs. Layering this mascara over a primer helped a little with the volume and spreadability, but not enough.
The brush looked interesting at first, and if your lashes are thin I could see how it could provide some definition. But ultimately the tiny bristles on the rubber brush are too short for anyone with thicker lashes, and they just make a gloppy mess. The only thing I ended up liking about this formula was the packaging. There are much, much better volumizing mascaras out there. Don't waste your time on this one.

JT from Olathe KS
I'm very upset, I used this twice and when I went to wash my make up off this 2nd time I noticed all my lashes were coming out. My lashes are now very short and sparse. I've never had this happen before with any other mascara.
One Of The Best

love this mascara better than others
Rhiannon from OH
Doesn't clump, very lengthening, holds curl for a long time!
Love this product!

Love this product!
BT from SC
i only got this because it was on sale and i wanted to try it out, but i would never get this again at full price. it does thicken lashes well but it clumps way too easily and i didn't really notice a difference in length. this is good if you want a very bold look but definitely more of a date night mascara if you can get your lashes to separate!
the only one I'll ever use
Josie from NJ
so far this is the best mascara ever! I love it! everything I used was giving me teary eyes. this is the only mascara for me. I have sensitive eyes and wear contacts but love makeup. I will keep tons of these at hand.
Nery from Clark, NJ
Maybelline was always my go to mascara, BUT wow on this Tarte Maneater mascara. I LOVE IT! There is definitely a difference. It feels lighter and goes on so much better. It's not clumpy and you can still tell your lashes have mascara. I will continue using this product.
Steph from Cali
Leaves my lashes with so much volume
KC from NY
Dries up too quickly on the wand, have to re-insert for more mascara and the end result is ok but not wow enough for tarte or the price.
Not my favorite
CAM from Whittier, ca
This is not my favorite. I have short lashes and this did not lengthen them or give them much volume. I tried it because of the reviews and I wouldn't buy again. If your lashes already have some length I think it would work great. Not for short. Even with a few coats. Nice bristles on the wand.
Like but not love
Dom from South Carolina
I really like the volume and length this mascara gives. It just feels like something is missing. It doesn't hold a curl very well. Right after applying it the curl looks great but after about 30-45 minutes the curl has fallen, I've tried with and without using an eyelash curler.
Didn't Work For Me
Amanda from Michigan
I personally found this mascara extremely wet and made for very messy/clumpy eyelashes. I struggled every morning trying to apply, first time I applied I did like 10 mins before leaving the house and it was a windy day. Before I even got to work I had raccoon eyes from the mascara. Now I made sure to give myself plenty of time to dry. But even throughout the day I just felt like if I ever touched my eyes the slightly the lashes would stick/clumb together... like the mascara never fully dried. Did I get a bad batch?
I've used Tarte mascara before and thought I would give this one a try, I honestly don't think I'll be ordering again.
Risa from La Mirada, CA
I had received this mascara about three years ago and this mascara is amazing!!! Love the volume and the look it gives my lashes.
A Hit And Miss!
Jess from Indiana
It does indeed lengthen and curl my heavy straight eyelashes but I found it was apparently harsh for my eyelashes for they fell out after using this one time. Sadly Im not a fan at all and returned it!
Worth the price
Yesman10 from San Jose
I'm a huge mascara girl and nothing beats this I've tried tons! I always catch it on sale. It's worth the hype.
missjaz from texas

I love it!!!!
Holly from Henderson 89011
This product is amazing!!! I would definitely re-purchase this again!!! My favorite tart mascara was lights camera lashes but now it's got competition.
LN from Alabama
I find this mascara goes on clumpy. I try to wipe the wand to get excess off before I apply but that doesn't always work other. It does not run
Love this mascara!
Kelly L from New York
Love this mascara, not clumping gives my lashes a great long look!
Surprisingly love it
FRISCO from Frisco, TX
Bought this while on sale, always looking for a great mascara product that actually does what it claims. I watched a few YouTube videos to research all of the reviews, and it convinced me to buy it. I've used it every day for 2 wks and consistently long length, volume and "fake lash" appeal. Used during a workout with minimal bleeding or raccoon eyes. My eyes looked pretty and really didn't need additional eye makeup. :) that's what I needed!
Best Mascara ever!
Jody from Sandy, Utah
I have used this mascara for years. I've tried other brands... but I always come back to this one. It honestly NEVER clumps... even as you reach the end of tube! My lashes look long and natural!
My new fav
Rompy from New York
My new fav that has become my holy grail...I have a hard time with mascaras doing what I want but this is great. Makes my eyes really pop. Get compliments about my lashes. Makes them look fuller, longer and doesn't weigh them down.
Good but rubs off on skin.
NKR from Minnesota
I like the non clumping applicator. Looks good when on. I have found that when my lashes touch my upper lid area the mascara rubs off just under my brows so I have to clean it off.
Emily from Altoona, PA
This doesn't provide much lift or volume. After about 3 hours it looked like I never applied mascara in the first place. Even when I curl my eye lashes with heat before applying they fall back down in minutes. It's also kind of clumpy. I expect more from mascara that's 20 something dollars
I would definitely buy this again!
Lola from San Antonio
Love the length and compliments that I receive.
