I woke up this morning with a disappointing (I may go into a sample depression) email in my inbox. Glossybox, my favorite sample treat box, is no longer sending out their fabulous samples. The tagline on the email was A Glossy Goodbye. My first thought was “How clever, a Glossy Goodbye, my subscription must be ending. Better dig out my credit card and renew”. Turns out my subscription was ending….forever! Hmmm now what?
Luckily I still have a stash of samples and I am now on the hunt for a new monthly beauty box sample kit. I don’t want to go into sample withdrawal so I better get looking and find a beauty sample company worthy of my sample love.
I’m sure you are thinking – Get on with Sample Sunday! I know – but I had to share my sad sample news with someone. So I will get started on the goods. I thought I would sample the mascara that I received with last weeks Sample Sunday which was the Tarte MulitpEYE Lash Primer. With the lash primer I also received the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara. Who names these products? I want their job!
I used this mascara quite a few times to get a feel for it. After a few tries I think I would fit this mascara into my night time mascara collection. The look of the mascara is a bit bolder than I like to wear for my daytime mascara – but if you like bold daytime lashes then this mascara is a great choice.
The mascara has a smooth and even application, which I always appreciate, and I did not find clumping to be an issue even when I put on a second coat on to see if more is better. On the tube Lights, Camera, Lashes, claims to increase lash volume and I would agree that my lashes did appear to be fuller. I did find that the appearance of the length of my short little lashes was not that much improved. My lashes were full but not lengthened like I like to see them. I do have other mascaras in my collection that lengthen my lashes in a more dramatic way. Sometimes that is the trade off… I will most likely will stick to my go-to DiorShow evening mascara as I get both benefits of volume and length in one. Though it is nice to know that I have a ‘back-up’ Lights, Camera, Lashes in my arsenal – just in case.
