This is a strange one. Yesterday I got the Tarte Tarteist Mascara from my Ipsy Bag and on first inspection it seemed fine. It does have an odd twist/snap top but mine wasn’t broken. I had heard from other bloggers that there were some issues with leakage.
Today I wanted to wear and review this mascara so I pulled it out again and with the second pull I now have a more goopy messy.
As you can see from the first photo the there’s way to much product on the wand and upon application it was really, really clumpy. My eye looks a bit like a spider, which might be good for Halloween.
I’m not sure what to think. Perhaps this was meant as a one or two application sampler or the design of the tube is just funky as there’s no way you can wipe the excess product off on the edge of the tub.
I am a huge fan of Tarte and Ipsy so this isn’t turning me off on their products at all, this just seemed to be a strange sample. I’m not going to return mine but perhaps if enough bloggers mention it they’ll look into the issue for future samples.
