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  It comes in 3 colors: Black, Chocolate and Plum.
