Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner gives you the best of both worlds—a liquid liner on one side and twist-up pencil on the other. Better yet, each performs beautifully!

The liquid liner of this duo is dispensed via a fine point felt-tip applicator. It works great for precise detail (like creating the coveted cat eye) and lays down solid, rich black color that stays put.

The pencil liner is just as good, delivering smooth, matte black color that glides on easily (no skipping, pulling or tugging). Once set, you can expect smudge-resistant wear that lasts day to night.

While each works wonderfully on its own, we also found pairing the liquid and pencil together was a brilliant way to create a dramatic look.

Way to think outside of the box, Tarte! This simple yet genius product is the type of innovation we love seeing. (And thanks for making it fragrance free!)

Pros:
  • Offers the convenience and versatility of a liquid and pencil liner in one easy-to-use product.
  • Liquid liner works great for precise detail and really stays put.
  • Pencil liner delivers smooth, matte black color that resists smudging.
  • Each works beautifully alone or can be combined to get the best of both worlds.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.

Define eyes like a pro with this triple-black, 12-hour eyeliner. It features two versatile formulas for a flawless, sculpted stare. Tightly line and contour eyes with the velvety smooth, twist-up pencil liner, powered by Amazonian clay to glide on like silk but wear like iron™. It perfectly traces along the lash line and inner rim, filling in spaces and enhancing the appearance of lash volume instantly. The long-wearing liquid liner on the opposite end has a precision tarteist tip and hydrating, quick-dry formula that paints on pigment and creates a crisp or dramatic wing. The double-ended formulas can be paired together for a sleek, sexy, smoky eye look that lasts.

Brand Overview

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 formulas—silicones, synthetic fragrances, preservatives and on and on. However, we’ll forgive them that as what’s 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 foundations—noted 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.
