Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

What a day brightener! I got the mail at lunch time and my Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara was all wrapped up in a bubble wrapper with MANY layers of bubble wrap. I’m sure it did not need quite so many.

You can see how amazing this mascara is – and though it retails for $19 I got it on ebay for $12.50 including shipping! πŸ™‚ I love when that happens.

It’s long, it’s dramatic, it’s thickening, it’s really conditioning. You can see how dramatic and full and thick my lashes are. Rice bran wax, the second ingredient, is a really nourishing wax and nothing like the paraffin most drug store brands use (I try to avoid paraffin in any products – it’s suffocating). This is my favorite mascara to date and I will not be wasting money on anything else.

Then of course the fourth ingredient is olive oil – how much better can you get? Essential fatty acids, omega-3’s, what a treat for eyelashes! The EFA’s and Omega-3’s in olive oil have been recommended for hair loss, so it is going to be really good for your eyelashes!

Again the “good for you ingredients” are really high on the list! Other good things are panthenol, a B-vitamin, and vitamin C.

As always, Tarte products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalathes, SLS, and synthetic fragrances.

And what a lovable container! Pretty and organic-looking, like Tarte’s brand.

Please please please have a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale, Tarte! πŸ™‚

  1. OK so I shouldn’t be SO quick to say “I’m not wasting money on anything else.” I mean any time soon. I don’t mean I will never try another mascara, as how could I avoid it when my beauty bloggin’ friends publish things like this:
    But I will not be wasting money going crazy to find a mascara I love because this exceeds all my expectations including healthy-ness! It’s a real “Wear Your Vitamins” product! Ha! I should start a sort of “certificate.” kind of like certified fair trade organic did!


    • Hi MandersDiva. Yes, it is actually really good about flaking and smudging. At least I think so, but maybe I don’t have a huge amount to compare it to. Of course if you rub your eyes or something it will be a little flaky or smudgy. I looked all over their website to see if it is officially waterproof but couldn’t see anything that says it was or not. However, it is Amazonian clay, which is something that’s supposed to set well, and also the reviews were mostly saying that one of the pros was that it stays put. That’s all I cold figure out. For me, I think it feels waterproof compared to non waterproof mascaras I have worn.


  2. Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
