Tarte Ladies Who Lash Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler review

          Hello, hello! This past week I've been to Baltimore, Boston, and about everywhere in between. I can't tell you how nice it is to sit down, refresh my mani, tune into Sleepy Hollow, and put the finishing touches on a post!

        Today I'm continuing my coverage of Tarte Holiday 2014 with the Tarte Ladies Who Lash Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler. (What a fantastic name, right?) I have a bit of an obsession with lashes, so this kit has my name all over it.

Tarte curlers are spring loaded. Here you see the fully open version, at rest.

         The focal point of the Tarte Ladies Who Lash set is a faux pearl-encrusted lash curler. Tarte periodically releases limited edition versions of their Picture-Perfect curler, and I have to say this is my favorite thus far, as I do tend to be a pearl girl. (It's looking quite cute perched on my acrylic organizers).

        Functionally, the Tarte Picture Perfect curler works well with the contour of my eye. It's a touch less curved than my Shu, for reference. The curler is spring loaded to open (as seen above); I've kept the little acrylic piece that hold the curler closed, just because I find it more convenient to store this way. It has flat paddle grips as opposed to rings, which are easy to wield.

Short bristles = volume.
        The set also comes with a miniature Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. I'm incredibly picky with mascaras, so I approached this formula with my usual skeptical eye. I found that that Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes fell nicely into my 'useable' (i.e. good) pile. It gives great length and medium volume. It seemed to hold a curl for a few hours, but I have yet to perform a full 14 hour workday test!

         Overall, the Tarte Ladies Who Lash Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler set ($19) is a pretty and practical set that I'll be enjoying this holiday season and beyond. (After all, who am I to say no to a pearl-encrusted set of curlers?) Functionally, I'm pleased with both pieces and think it's a nicely priced set for self or gifting.

        Thanks for reading! What Tarte products have you been enjoying lately? What are your favorite mascaras or lash curlers?

  1. I have a new unused Tarte curler which I am yet to use because my Shu Uemura curlers are still going strong! Wish I had these pearl crusted ones! :-)


  2. I tried the mascara several years ago, but I remember it not working for me at all! The curler is way cute though! My go-to curler is the Shu one. I find it the sturdiest, which is important because you're putting it near your eyes!

  3. Wow!!! That curler is such a beauty! Its def an elegant one but hope that its a tough one!
