Needless to say, I am in LOVE with it! The formula is on the drier side, which many of my bloggie friends swear by because it doesn't weigh down the lashes.
Tarte describes this mascara has a "push up bra" of mascaras - meaning, it lifts, volumizes, lengthens and curls.
I would describe my lashes as short, sparse and minimal. So I appreciate any volumizing properties that mascaras have.
The wand is thin and prickly to get the most stubborn of lashes. The formula reminds me very much of the Lancome Hypnose Doll Mascara (see review here!) and the Benefit Bad Gal Lash, which I love.
I'm really liking it a lot. I think this mascara really holds the curl well and since it's lightweight it also dries fast so I haven't had issues with smudging.
It does a fantastic job in holding the curl and it volumizes fairly nice. It lengthens a lot though so I am thoroughly impressed with that alone. I also like that it's non-waterproof so it washes off very easily.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this mascara! It does retail for a steep $19.00 for a full size and that's quite expensive for me to splurge. I am going to keep this mascara in mind the next time I need to purchase but it would be awesome to find a dupe.
Do you have any recommendations for mascaras with drier formulas? It can be drugstore or high end. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts! :)
