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!
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.

Lasts all day without smudging.

This is truly waterproof! Great when going to a water park or every day

I have been looking for mascara for YEARS. My lashes are naturally very long, but extremely straight. No matter which mascara I would use, they would eventually fall flat within a couple of minutes. The trick to straight lashes is WATERPROOF mascara! The second I tried this mascara I was immediately in love. It's now the end of the day and my lashes are still big and beautiful as ever! This is now my go to mascara!

I LOVE this mascara! I tried to switch to a different brand for a lighter color but I ended up coming right back to this one. It is VERY waterproof. I use Clinique "take the day off" makeup remover and it comes off easily. It also lasts the whole day! I've done heavy exercises in this mascara and it did not budge! I recommend this mascara to everyone looking for a waterproof/sweat proof mascara.

Does this mascara go on thick and gloppy? Yes. But that works in your favor with the right technique.
Get a dry spoolie brush and immediately comb through after the first layer, breaking up clumps. (Small disposal spoolie brushes are great.)
Let it dry 20-30 seconds before touching up the tips. Because this mascara stays wet for a few seconds, it gives you time to tweak your lashes, get rid of clumps, and wipe away dots that get on your skin. You can also use a lash comb and/of a fine point to break up small clumps.
Many waterproof mascaras don't thicken very well, but I get decent lash thickening from this one. And like the not-too-dark black color because it isn't harsh.
As a wearer of hard contacts I need a good waterproof mascara. Some waterproof mascaras flake apart after a few hours and get into my eyes. Ouch! This one seldom does that so makes it a repeat buy item.
To remove, use baby oil or unscented mineral oil. Cheap and fast removal. Moistures the skin around the eyes, too.

I typically love tarte mascara but this one was lack luster at best... I returned
Geo from Flagstaff, AZ
I bought this mascara specifically trying to find a newer one that helped thicken my lashes and make them full - all this did was irritate my eyes.

I was looking for a waterproof mascara that provides length and volume. This provided neither of the latter. I love Tarte. But not this time.
carito :) from Illinois
I loveee tarte and their mascara line! It lasts all day, it's waterproof, and makes my lashes look longer! The only thing is after a day at work and I get home it does end up being a bit smudged. Then again, I work for about 8 hrs. so maybe wear it for a little less of time haha.

This mascara has been a dream cone true, as long as you have waterproof make up remover it was perfect for me.
Alaina from Rhode Island
Just purchased this product a week ago and don't love it, I feel it is just your basic mascara. Doesn't really make the eyes pop but it's enough to see you are wearing mascara. Just wasn't that wow factor I was looking for.

It's the best 🥰🥰🥰

By far my favorite mascara
Nicole from SLC, UT
Does not actually seem to be waterproof. It smudged right away , I had raccoon eyes all day. Didn't hold the curl. Came off super easy but that shows even more that it isn't a waterproof mascara.
Lauren from Tulsa, OK
VERY waterproof mascara if that's what you're looking for. It's so waterproof that it's difficult to remove (whether using makeup remover or warm water…it's a pain to remove). Sticky formula so if you rub your eye at all, your lashes will clump together. Also clumps lashes together when wet. Definitely not an ideal everyday mascara to me.
Amy from Southern California
This stuff is awful. I had to use 3 coats for it to even look like I was wearing mascara. It kept transferring to my upper eyelid because it took SO long to dry. Then it finally dried and was super sticky. I have drugstore waterproof mascara way better than this overpriced one
Jonesss from Arizona
I love this mascara! I've been using it for 2 years now. I looked forever for a vegan/ cruelty free waterproof mascara! This mascara lasts all day and doesn't clump together. I use it by moving the wand side-to-side more than the traditional way.
Always on the Go from San Angelo, Texas
I absolutely loveeee this product!!!! I MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMENDDDD!! I have very sensitive eyes and this is a miracle!!! I wear mascara about every day and I can leave this on for at least 48 hours and it still looks flawless! It's amazing because I am always on the go. It's so easy to take off with make up wipes too. I have been a user of this mascara for over a year and it has never ever let me down. The only thing is it can be hard to find in town. So if you notice it getting low plan ahead.
asilevac from Columbus Ohio
I LOVE the original Tarte (lights, camera, lashes) mascara so thought I'd dig the waterproof version. Absolutely hate this. Leaves my lashes sticky, clumpy, they look thinner because they're stuck together, I have to use a brush to separate after applying. Back to the original for me.

I've been trying to find a mascara that will not snydge for at least the past 8 months. This one caught my eye so I tried it. I was willing to pay more for better. I wore it this past summer and it really is waterproof. I think it goes on very nice. It doesn't clump and has not been dry for me. But it does not matter what I do, it is always under my eyes part way through my work day and I don't have an active job. I really had high hopes but even today I have it on and still smudges on me. The only reason I still am using it is because I haven't found anything else that does not smudge. I use neutrogena makeup remover clothes and they have taken of most waterproof mascaras I have tried. I just don't now how it smudges when it stays on in the pool?
Mary from Alabama
Disappointed! Not think enough I need at least 3 coats and it's not even easy to apply after the first. And the packaging cute but unnecessary what's the point of it? Besides of course contaminate the planet more.
Alissa from Arizona
This is my favorite waterproof mascara! It's easy to remove with a reusable makeup cloth, warm water and cleanser. A lot of other ones I've tried pull your eyes lashes out over time. It makes my lashes super long and it's a good mascara to go over other non waterproof mascaras. I've purchased this mascara a dozen times and will continue to purchase.

I finally narrowed it down that this mascara itches and burns my eyes.
It worked as far as waterproof and came off easy but….
Wittycat from Charlotte, NC
I bought after a few recommendations. The first tube seemed dry, so I exchanged it. The second tube was not much better.
The mascara is not very easy to get on - it's like there is almost nothing on the brush. It is difficult to layer. If you try, do this when first application is still wet or it's like trying to apply mascara to wires.
The mascara is very difficult to get off with even makeup removing cleanser. Must use oil-based makeup remover to get it off.
The mascara is waterproof. That is the only good thing about it, as long as you can get it on your lashes. And it does not make lashes look long or thicker - just black sticks.
Freida from Houston TX
This mascara works really great for me! I have short, stick straight lashes, and I have to wear waterproof mascara in order for them to hold a curl. I have worn waterproof mascara since I was in high school, and I am 54, so I have tried many, many brands in my life, and this is one of the best I have ever used. It goes on smoothly, no clumping whatsoever, and it really lengthens my lashes and makes them pop. Being waterproof, you do need to use some type of emollient to remove them. I usually use a Neutrogena wipe. I was very pleasantly surprised the first time I used it because my lashes have thinned as I have gotten older but this mascara made my lashes look like they used to look ten years ago. Very pleased with it.
