Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the Tarte Maneater Mascara.
I found this mascara in the Sephora Advent Calendar but you can buy both this mini version or the full size at Sephora.
Tarte has only recently arrived in Italy so I haven’t had the opportunity to try much from them, so I was excited to see this in the calendar.
The packaging is really pretty, I like the leopard details.
The wand has silicone bristles and it has a cone shape.
The formula has quite a wet consistency and is very black.
EFFECT & APPLICATION
I always do two coats of mascara to get the best results. This mascara is quite lengthening but not too volumizing. It’s ok but not special, it’s a bit clumpy too and not as dramatic as I like.
While the effect is ok, the application is kind of tricky, the formula is quite wet and the brush is too long, so it’s basically guaranteed you’ll get dirty. On top of that, it makes it hard to reach all the lashes and it’s impossible to use on the lower ones, it makes them too spidery.
It lasts all day, I find it fairly easy to remove, I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

- Formula: 5/10
This mascara is ok, I mean I like the effect but there are mascaras I like way better. But I really don’t like the formula and it’s incredibly hard to apply so for that price I don’t recommend it. Maybe if you prefer a more lengthening mascara you might like it but it’s a pass for me.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
