Tarte emphasEYES Natural Eye Liner

Pin It!

In case you missed it, or don’t recall, I did a What’s In My Make Up Bag post a while ago. I don’t have a pristine natural selection of cosmetics but I try. One of the things I hadn’t found yet was a more natural option for eye liner. I don’t wear it every day but I have pretty fair coloring and need to emphasize my eyes when I can manage to. I was not blessed with full dark lashes. Anyhow, when I was in NYC for BlogHer, Joelle and I made a little detour to Sephora on our way to the convention hotel.. you know, like girls tend to do. On a whim I grabbed a little value pack of eye liner and mascara by Tarte which featured a travel sized mascara that I love and have used before, Tarte Lash Hugger. Along side it though came a Tarte emphasEYES™ eyeliner.

It didn’t occur to me until just now that it is meant for the inner rim of your eye for that “smoky” look.  I don’t hardly ever go anywhere to warrant a “smokey eye” these days so I have just been using it primarily as an eyeliner.  It goes on smooth and stays all day.  I’d say that was a success in the realm of natural cosmetic use.

Tarte makes many of their products without the use of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, SLS, or mineral oils.  The emphasEYES eyeliner is no exception. Their products are by no means chemical free but it lacks some of the bigger players we try to avoid these days so it’s a good alternative that performs rather well.

Get It: You can purchase Tarte products and their emphasEYES eyeliner on their website or on Sephora.com.  It comes in 3 colors: Black, Chocolate and Plum.

    I will start by saying that I love your blog! I had to comment on this one though, because I got one of these pencils in a Tarte sampler pack, and I really really wanted to love it! I’m all about the more natural products, but I wear hard contact lenses, and pretty much everything I put on my eyes bleeds into my eyes at least a little bit…and this pencil did not agree with my contacts. My vision got SO blurry that I couldn’t read a page that I was holding in front of my face, and I had to go take off my makeup and clean my contacts. I tried it again the next day just to make sure it was this pencil, and I was disappointed to find out that it was. I then proceeded to toss it, because sharing eye makeup with other people is freaky so I wouldn’t pass it on to someone else. Lots of people love this pencil, and there is a lot to love about it, but if you wear RGP hard contacts, this might not be the way to go :(
