Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow/Liner Product Review

Tarte EmphasEYES Stays the Course

I test a lot of waterproof eyeliner, and while some of it's nothing to write home about, the majority do a relatively good job. However, not all of the products I test are as gentle as Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow/Liner ($22). This stuff is so non-irritating that I couldn't even feel it on. I'm fairly certain that even though I wear contacts and have sensitive eyes, I could poke myself in the cornea with some of it and not notice. It's also a lot less weird-ingredient heavy than a lot of liners out there, although not entirely natural. It wears just as well, in my opinion, as my beloved Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils ($17) and Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes ($17), and I like the cream formula because it allows you a lighter, more subtle application. My only qualm is with the price—it's a little up there, and comparable products from other brands are about five dollars less. However, if you're looking for something waterproof and you've got sensitive eyes, I'd say it's a good option.

keep hearing awesome things about this, must try. not natural and not a lot of shade options but the Loreal "liquid pencil" outdid 24/7 on wear/smudging and you can get it for $5-10 (and CVS/walgreens do loreal BOGO pretty often) plus it feels supersmooth going on. that new 24/7 set is super tempting and so's the Korres 10 fs liner set ($32 I think but you can find codes to get 25% off and free S&H if you buy from korres), korres doesn't wear as well but it's natural, doesn't irriate office-safe, and cheap.

The price is worth it since it has better ingredients and comes with a brush.
