How to Survive a Mascara Meltdown with Tarte Cosmetics



Sponsored: We have all experienced a mascara meltdown at one point or another. Maybe it happened while you were at a wedding, after a break-up, during a torrential downpour, in the middle of a hard-core workout, or while you were watching something sappy on the hallmark channel. It’s always at the least opportune times that your mascara begins to create little black waterfalls down your cheeks, making your eyes that were once fine art, now look more abstract.

Thankfully, tarte cosmetics has us covered for any potential mascara meltdowns we might face with their limited-edition lights, camera, splashes™ 4-in-1 waterproof mascara. With this waterproof mascara, your eyes will stay put no matter what type of water-works-disaster you might be facing.




Buying waterproof mascara can be tricky because not all of them are made equal. What’s so good about the tarte cosmetics lights, camera, splashes™ 4-in-1 mascara is that it is not only waterproof; it lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions your lashes. But what had me sold on this waterproof mascara was the fact that it stayed put even though I put it through a very rigorous test to make sure it did what it said it would do. As a makeup artist who works a whole lot with brides that could experience a multitude of potential mascara meltdowns, it is imperative for me to use mascara that really, really works. Thankfully this limited-edition waterproof mascara is here at the perfect time when summer is just hitting and bridal season is starting.


tarte camera splashes reviewMake sure to pick up your tarte cosmetics, limited-edition lights, camera, splashes mascara before it’s gone (or before I buy them all up myself).

    I like the regular formula of Lights Camera Lashes. Altho I can’t wear waterproof, this is a very impressive demo!

  • What a great tutorial of showcasing the mascara. Love it. I am a fan of Tarte mascara, and I think I may need this one ASAP especially since it is limited edition. Great post as always and BTW you look gorgeous! 🙂 xxo

  • Aleya Bamdad

    5 minutes in the shower and it still looks amazing. I’m impressed!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    Love the photos! I may need to grab this mascara!

  • Gotta say, this held up way better than I thought it would!

  • I rarely used waterproof mascara before I discovered makeup remover. Now that I’m a convert, maybe I’ll look into waterproof mascara again… No one likes raccoon eyes. Except a raccoon.

  • yay for lash survival!

  • Anastasia

    If it can survive all that, it’s a winner in my book!

  • LOVE this mascara!!

  • It sounds like I need to take it to the movies …. every time I go. I seriously cry in every friggin movie!

  • Wow – the results are amazing!

  • I have one of these… can’t remember if it’s splashe s- but it’s purple. I do enjoy it – it just flakes on me easily – so much for my stinkin watery eyes.
