TARTE Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

In the past year I've mainly been reaching for drugstore mascaras, but still had to sneak in a couple higher-end ones to try out. The Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara comes in a purple hard plastic tube with snake skin-like embossing. I have the mini version which contains 4 ml of product, while the full size has 7 ml. It comes in one shade (black) which is described as a rich black. It is a 4-in-1 mascara, promising volume, length, curl and conditioning for the lashes.

I really like the wand with natural bristles, which is small and also easily reaches the small lashes close to the inner corner as well as bottom lashes without making a mess. I generally really like how it looks on my lashes - it works well at adding both volume and length, keeps them curled for the whole day and stays in place really well, so there are no flakes left around the eyes at the end of the day. I wore it in different weather conditions and on very hot humid days I noticed that it would often leave some grey smudges around the eyes, but otherwise performed well. The formula was nice from the beginning, but started getting dry about two months in (and I wasn't using it daily), which might be due to the smaller size, but still something to note, at which point it also started leaving more flakes when I wore it (but I think that's only a sign that I should stop using it). As much as it adds a generous amount of volume and length with an overall pretty and fluttery look, I find that more than two layers leave my lashes looking somewhat clumpy, which is not a look I enjoy on me, so I would prefer some more added definition from it. It is easily removed at the end of the day with an eye makeup remover or cleansing oil.

Overall, I do like this mascara, but at the same time there's nothing special about it, that would make me reach for it on a daily basis or give me the effect I don't also get from other more affordable ones, like the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara or the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.
