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! 🙂 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! 🙂
