Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara Review


Happy November and can you believe that this year is almost over??????  Since it's almost Christmas time, some great holiday beauty and makeup collections are coming out which is putting me in full shopping mode......but before I indulge in all of that, let me talk about a mascara that I purchased during the end of summer.....The Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara..........

First, let me start out by saying that I love the packaging.  I love the wood tube with the design at the top of the package.  I also enjoy that the wand is pretty big (which I love) and can cover my lashes pretty evenly and fast:

According to Tarte:

An Amazonian clay smart mascara that instinctively treats your unique lash concerns- working overtime to keep lashes hydrated, intact, healthier, and stronger, while delivering the appearance of voluminous lashes.


Water/Aqua/Eau, cyclopentasiloxane, oryza sativa (rice) bran wax/ oryza sativa (rice) bran cera, hydrogenated olive oil stearyl esters, cera carnauba/copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax/cire de carnauba, alcohol denat., propylene glycol, palmitic acid, triethanolamine, stearic acid, candelilla cera/euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax/cire de candelilla, acacia senegal gum, VP/VA copolymer, polyvinyl alcohol, panthenol, aminomethyl propanediol, ethylhexylglycerin, ascorbyl palmitate, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, isopropyl alcohol, iron oxides (CI 77499).

Formulated without parabens, formulated without mineral oil, formulated without phthalates, formulated without sodium lauryl sulfates, formulated without gluten.

I bought this mascara from Ulta for $21.00 and I wanted to try this mascara out due to it being made with Amazonian Clay and moisturizing effects. I purchased the shade "Black" but I believe this is the only shade from this particular collection.  It has 0.24 Fl Oz (7 mL) of product and it is supposed to last for about 6 months.  When I applied the mascara, it applied smoothly and I didn't experience any clumping at all.  I didn't have any smudging throughout the day and my lashes felt soft and not hard or stiff:

The mascara did provide volume and provided a amazing curl for my lashes.  I will say that I don't believe that it made my lashes look longer but it did give a natural look for my eyes.  I do enjoy using this as a everyday mascara due to it not feeling heavy and not flaking.  

With everything being said, this doesn't replace my holy grail mascara (Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara) due to the fact the Too Faced mascara makes my lashes look fuller, curls, and makes my lashes look longer to the max......almost giving me a false lashes look which is more than the Tarte mascara can provide.  I definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking for a natural, everyday mascara.

You can purchase the Tarte Gifted Mascara from Ulta, Sephora, QVC, and Tarte Cosmetics.
