Here is a little brief about the Olive Esters:  The ancient Greeks were among the first to recognize the beauty benefits of pure extra-virgin olive oil. The precious oil that is exacted is comprised primarily of esters, which contain the powerful nutrients and vitamins that provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Olive esters can be used on all skin types, promoting healing and moisturization in dry, parched skin, normalizing oily and combination skin, and gently cleansing and removing impurities on even sensitive skin. Since olive esters are safe for use around the eyes, they provide an ideal natural beauty boost to condition, treat and protect lashes.

My Experience with Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara:

Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara is a non-waterproof formula from Tarte with a traditional wand and shorter natural bristles.

The packaging is a little bulky, but looks nice and shiny. Once I pulled the wand out of the tube, I could see lot of product coming on the applicator. I had to remove the excess before starting to apply on my lashes to avoid clumps. I wish the tube itself prevents most of the product from coming out when we pull out the brush.  It is always good to remove the excess product from the brush, be it any mascara to get a clump-free application.

The color is true black and it beautifully highlights the lashes and brightens the eyes. I was quite impressed with the way it built volume and length of my lashes just with a couple of swipes. When I don’t curl my lashes, it lifts the lashes a little bit and when I do curl my lashes, it does hold them well.

On me, it stays for the whole day without smudging and flaking. I have accidentally rubbed my eyes a couple of times and it has not smeared at all.

This mascara claims to contain Rice Barn wax, which is edible and has high melting point (77 – 86 °C). This contributes to the creamy texture, which effortless builds volume and length of lashes and the higher melting point prevents the mascara from smudging or flaking.

I have read some reviews about this mascara, where girls with oily skin and also girls who live in very humid places, have complained that it smudges on them. I do not have that issue, so I cannot comment about that.

They also claim it’s dermatologist and clinically-proven to increase the appearance of lash volume. Though I haven’t used long enough to see any changes in my lash volume, I’m confident that the olive ester in this would condition and protect my lashes.

Let me put down the pros and cons of this fabulous mascara:

Pros of Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara:

  • Builds volume and length of lashes so effortlessly.
  • Gives a little bit of curl to lashes by itself.
  • You can totally go for natural to dramatic look according to your preference.
  • Formulated without harmful chemicals like paragons, mineral oil, phthalates, SLS, synthetic fragrance and gluten.
  • Though it is not a waterproof mascara, it does not smear or flake until I remove it at the end of the day.
  • Does not irritate the eyes.
  • Keeps lashes flexible and does not make them stiff, thus avoiding lash breakage.

Cons of Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara:

  • The bristles always picks more product than required. Need to wipe off the excess to avoid clumping. Other than this fault, this mascara works great for me.
  • Might not work for girls with very oily skin. I would still suggest that you can use only on the upper lashes.
