As much as I love felt tip liquid eyeliners, almost all of them dry up so quickly or I run out of product before the expiration date. So I’ve been wanting to try some different formulas to see if switching it up would do the trick for me. Plus some of my liquid eyeliners don’t show up after I apply them over a glitter shadow, and that lingers to the next application. Then I saw this set of Tarte’s eyeliners and decided to give it a go. I have seen Mykie from Glam & Gore use this product in almost any video where she’s showing the eyeliner application, so if it works for her maybe it will work for me as well. This formula is supposed to be 12-hour wear, waterproof, creamy, and mess-free. In this set you get four eyeliners and a double-ended eyeliner brush.

About the Set

It’s valued at $48 but only costs $35. Which considering how many products you get, seems totally fine in my option. Each tube has 0.1 oz of product, the full size for reference is 0.21 oz and costs $24. Ulta does not carry the mulberry, champagne, or copper shades individually but they do have gold, silver, and black. But you don’t get the gold or silver in this kit. Which I don’t mind as those aren’t shades I really reach for expect for specialty looks once in a blue moon. I did get this kit during the holiday season, so I don’t know if this is going to be sticking around after the holidays are over. Or if this is something that’s going to be available for a while. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but just never got around to it until now.

How to Use

  1. Gently squeeze a pin-sized amount of product onto the blending stage surface. If you squeeze too hard the product will come flying out.
  2. Pick up a small amount of liner on an eyeliner brush.
  3. Apply your eyeliner by gliding the brush along the upper and lower lashline or extending it out to a dramatic wing. I did not try this on the lash line as I prefer a kohl liner for this piece, but you can apply this on the waterline without worrying about it disappearing.

First Impression Video/Eyeliner Routine

I want to get more into posting tutorials on YouTube. But one thing that I don’t want to repeat over and over is base repeatable steps that could be covered in one video. So my first impressions was also a bit of my “daily” eyeliner routine. I do adjust it depending on the look. Change the liner color on my waterline, add a tight-line, or add a cat wing. But it’s all the same steps so I’m knocking out two birds with one stone. If you would like any other “daily” routine videos let me know as I’m trying to figure out new content ideas that are different for 2018. Since I can’t afford to buy and test new makeup, but still want there to be makeup or beauty related content on both my blog and YouTube.

Overall Thoughts

I love this eyeliner, it is very pigmented and applies very easily. I tried it over some metallic shadows that normally give me issue with the felt tip liner that was my go to, and it didn’t have issues. I do have to say as I mentioned in the first impression video, I don’t like the short angled brush from the kit. But the other side worked perfectly. I’ll probably end up getting the full size eyeliner of the black but I really wish there was a full size of the mulberry available as well. Or a chocolate brown as I could see myself using those shades all the time. Though I normally reach for black, so it’s alright since I have the mini size for the meantime. They do have pot shadow liners with more colors. But I’m not a huge fan of that style of eyeliner as it dries out too quickly though they used to be my go-to before the felt tip eyeliner. Maybe the following year, I’ll switch that up as well. Who knows? But for now, I’m really enjoying these eyeliners.
