Is it greedy to ask for a mascara that lengthens, volumizes, and curls? Not in the year 2023, it’s not. Tarte Maneater Mascara is proof that there’s no longer any need to sacrifice lift for length or drama for staying power. The Allure Best of Beauty-winning mascara does everything a mascara could possibly do, and it does it all well.
The formula contains plant-derived carnauba wax, which — in addition to helping lashes look longer and more voluminous — works together with jojoba wax to make this pigment glide on like a dream, with zero clumping or drag.
But as any mascara lover knows, even the best formula is only as good as its brush — and this one is pretty stellar. The flexible tip is spiked with more than 500 teeny, tiny bristles that grab and coat every last lash. (Yep, even those practically-invisible ones near your inner corners.)
The result is a fanned-out, lengthened look with just enough curl. A single coat makes it look like I naturally have really great lashes (if I do say so myself!) while adding a second turns up the drama without getting clumpy.
The formula isn’t waterproof (so removal is a breeze) but can go toe to toe with the best of them when it comes to longevity. And thank goodness for that — because when your lashes look this good, you want to show ’em off all day long.
