Tarte’s Tarteist Clay Paint Liner is the newest edition to the line and it has some pretty big claims – a ‘revolutionary, foolproof blending stage’ for one. So, what the heck is a blending stage? You can see in the picture above that firstly this liner is not line your average cream/gel liner, because it comes in a squeeze tube rather than a pot or pen. Secondly, the tip of that tube has a dish-like opening that you can use with your brush (bonus, this product comes with a brush!) to evenly disperse the product on the bristles, rather that crusting up the inside lid to the jar, or getting it all over your hands. I really find this allows you to use just enough product, as well as keeping it all very sanitary, and most importantly keeping it from drying up. At first I thought this was going to be gimmicky, but it is so handy!

After about 10 hours of wear my liner still looked more or less like this, minus some slightly fading on the inner corners where I’d rubbed my eyes. No flaking, no smudging, no transferring.
This (tough to please) girl is impressed. After being let down with other high end brand’s gel and cream liners, I felt my money was really well spent on this one! Of course the end bonus being that it stands true to Tarte’s regular stance of not using parabens, mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfate etc and is cruelty free.
