Brand Overview

Liquid eyeliner fans, get ready to be impressed! Lights Camera Lashes Precision Longwear Eyeliner is one the easiest to use, impressively rich black eyeliners we’ve ever seen. If you’re going to splurge on eyeliner, this is a great way to do it!

The liquid, fragrance-free formula glides flawlessly across skin via a felt-tip applicator. Its tapered point is thin enough for those who prefer an ultra-skinny line but also easily creates a thicker line if that’s what you want. It also has just the right amount of flexibility for precise control. Bravo, Tarte!

We were also impressed by the intensely pigmented matte finish that is flake-proof, smudge-resistant and doesn’t fade. It’s not every day that we get this excited about a pricey eyeliner, but Lights Camera Lashes Precision Longwear Eyeliner is so worth it!


  • Fine felt-tip applicator allows for versatility and ease in application.
  • Flake-proof and smudge-resistant.
  • Rich, matte black color that doesn’t fade.


  • None.

Jar Packaging: No

Tarte Cosmetics At-A-Glance

Tarte Cosmetics CEO and founder Maureen Kelly started Tarte in 1999, out of a desire to create a cosmetics line that would prove that glamour can be good for you. This comes in the form of products that highlight naturally-derived ingredients in their marketing campaigns, and occasionally taking swipes at the concept of synthetics in makeup.

This is ironic, as Tarte uses more than a few beneficial synthetically derived ingredients in their formulassilicones, synthetic fragrances, preservatives and on and on. However, well forgive them that as whats ultimately important is whether their products meet your needs, and to that we can say the brand excels in many areas at what they do.

However, a few products are a bit on the pricey side and there are a few iffy shades and textures to consider among their foundationsnoted in their respective reviews. A few caveats aside, most of Tarte's foundations, blush options, eye pencils and an ever-expanding range of innovative products demonstrate that color is what they do best.
