tarte Waterproof Clay Eye Liner – Review

15 Apr

I have been known to really get myself into trouble when I’m up late watching QVC at 2am. It’s impossible for me to resist a beauty presentation on a home shopping channel. My boyfriend rolls his eyes in disgust as I sit there, glued to the television LOL. Well, Tarte was the lucky brand that got my attention a few nights ago. They were presenting a trio of waterproof clay eyeliners for $29 in black, sage and bronze. They arrived in my mailbox today and I am THRILLED!

The packaging was lovely, a long application brush and three liners in glass pots and encased in a gold-foiled box. The application brush comes with two ends. A thicker blending end and a long, skinny bristled end for precision lines. I always have issues applying my liner smoothly, I was actually worried I wouldn’t be able to apply this stuff well. Boy was I wrong. The clay formula is sooo fabulous, it just glides right onto my lid with super clean edges. I’ve never been able to apply a pencil liner this well. The pigment payoff is FANTASTIC! One little dip with the brush and you can glide straight across your lid without losing pigment. As long as you keep the pots well sealed, you’ll be able to get hundreds of applications from these three liners.

By the way, they weren’t joking about the waterproof thing. I swatched these on my arm, THICKLY swatched at that, waited about 5 minutes and they are not moving whatsoever. I’ve rubbed the crap out of them without a budge. Very, very cool.

    It will be interesting to see you what you think in the long run. I bought this eyeliner in black a while back. After a month or two, though, it dried out! My Sephora eyeliner in the same format has lasted at least 6 months and is still nice and creamy. I was pleased at first with Tarte, but I didn’t think the eyeliner aged well in the packaging.

      I’ve heard that from a lot of people! I must have lucked out because I’m still using this same set 9 months later. None of them have dried up on me yet (although I’m sure it’s inevitable at some point). I don’t know if it makes much difference, but I store them upside down in my makeup drawer.
