Aw yeah, it's Mascara Monday! Behold: One of my absolute favorite, holy grail, can't-live-without mascaras: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! I think what first drew me in with this mascara was the packaging (my kryptonite, for sure): dark purple with faux snakeskin which is probably the most luxe mascara packaging I've ever seen. So let's check out the full review and see what makes it one of my all-time faves!

The Mascara: I don't know what the mascara is made of, but if I had to guess, it'd be tears from angels and unicorns mixed together. The formula is perfection. It's not too wet but not too dry and helps create the most perfect wispy eyelashes I've ever been able to create with a mascara. This baby lengthens, curls and separates all while managing to never flake, clump or smudge. 

The Brush: The mindblowing part of this mascara is that the wand is basically your run-of-the-mill mascara wand. There's really nothing revolutionary about it. The bristles are close together which would make one think it would clump your lashes together, but it doesn't. Other than that, there's really not that much noteworthy of the wand.

The Results: Long, voluminous lashes with no clumps! I've received numerous compliments whenever I wear this mascara. I think my favorite part about this mascara is that it doesn't fall after a few hours. It relentlessly holds the curl until you remove your makeup.
