I love mascara. I love lots of mascara. I love trashy thick Diana Ross lashes mascara. And I want a mascara that does all of that in one fell swoop. Granted, that’s not an easy task, however, over the years of I have found a few mascaras that fill the bill. Recently I have tried several mascaras and there are only a couple I feel worthy of a review. One of those is Tarte Cosmetics Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara.
Here are the deets about Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara:
What it is:
A reparative and volumizing mascara containing Tarte’s biggest beauty breakthrough, Amazonian clay.
What it does:
This amazing mascara delivers a 406% increase in lash volume and long-term reparative, rebuilding, and strengthening benefits with each swipe giving you instant results and better lash health. Just as it intuitively restores hydration and texture in skin, Amazonian clay intuitively hydrates and replenishes dry and brittle lashes to prevent fallout. High performance natural™Amazonian clay performs all day by absorbing oil to balance mascara and keep product in place for flake-free longer wear. It lends itself to deepen pure color pigments creating a volume-boosting formula with higher intensity and truer pure color. The result is healthier and more voluminous lashes that won’t ever flake or transfer, naturally. After daily wear, lashes are intact, healthier and stronger. This mascara prevents lash loss and promotes lash health.
What else you need to know:
Tarte gives back and so can you: with every gifted mascara purchase, you are helping support the Tarte-sponsored sustainable-harvest cooperatives in the Amazon.
I’m a Tartlette. I have as of yet to find a product from Tarte that has not worked for me, and Gifted mascara is no exception. This mascara is another beautiful installment in the Amazonian Clay assortment of products, by Tarte, and I love it. Here’s why:
- It lengthens, it really lengthens. My lashes are so long when using Gifted mascara they nearly reach my eyebrows. And that’s with one coat.
- It curls and lifts. My lashes are straight and Gifted mascara curls and lifts them like crazy. Love.
- It’s flake free. I love that even when I rub my eyes, this mascara stays in place—no flaking, no smudging.
- It’s really black. And as we all know, black is beautiful.
- It volumizes. My lashes are thicker and much sexier when using Gifted mascara, even with a single coat.
I have used my tube for about 30 days now and found that my lashes are pretty darn healthy. Gifted lives up to its claims on all levels. And on top of that, Gifted gives back, and I love a socially conscious product line.
