I’ve worn eyeliner nearly every day of my life since I started wearing makeup, and I consider myself an experienced liner lady (like, if eyeliners were cats, that’s me!). When I find a great product, I usually don’t stray from it, and I’ve been faithful to my current favorites until now.
Let’s find out!
By the way, in this look I’m also wearing Shiseido Synchro Skin Foundation, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, Makeup Geek Eyeshadows, L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer, Tarteist Clay Blush Palette, and Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in “Miami Fever” (by KathleenLights). And yes, I am forcing myself to use a different lipstick every day and have fallen in love with this color, again.
Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner
We have just reached holy grail status. 🙂 From the first swipe of Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner ($24), I can see that it’s a good one. After a full day of work and errands and exercise, it still looks impeccable, and I don’t say things like this very often, but I’ve tried just about every bad, good, and “just OK” eyeliner out there.
(BTW, if you’re on a budget, try patting a black eyeshadow on top of your liquid eyeliner. It will last much longer and fixes the patchiness.)
Anyways, my favorite eyeliner is Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, and this feels like a slightly thicker and pigmented version. The Tarte tip feels like a super soft marker, which helps the pigment quickly catch onto the lids.
I still love Kat’s Tattoo Liner for its super-thin brush tip, but the Tarte one performs a tiny bit better for my style.
On top of that, there’s a pencil eyeliner on the other end just to, like…I guess…make things way more convenient.
Stop, I feel officially spoiled.
Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara
Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara ($23) is an appropriately named jet-black mascara with an inky, thick formula, and I’m impressed by how dramatic it makes my straight, thick lashes look.
A mascara has to do a LOT for me to remember to apply it every morning…and this one’s doing great things in the volume department.
I bet it’ll work magic if you have thin or long lashes, but because of its intensity and weight, it has a tendency to flatten out my lashes post-curling. But that hasn’t stopped me from reaching for it. But that’s just something to think about. If this mascara is supposed to be the mascara equivalent of the liquid eyeliner, it nails it.
If you’ve been following my posts here on Makeup and Beauty Blog, you know that I’ve been really into Tarte’s Tarteist releases. I love the trendier updates while also committing to the “natural” aspect of the brand. If there are any other Tarte products you think I should check out, please let me know!
See you in the next,
