Today's post is all about Tarte Skinny SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Onyx. I purchased it from Sephora when I was over in New England/Chicago last October, on good authority that it has amazing lasting power in the waterline. That was solely the reason as I have trouble with some of the other brands just disappearing or gathering in my tear duct and looking terribly unattractive.
This eyeliner has an extremely buttery, smooth and creamy texture that glides over the skin. On the opposite side is a smudger to soften the look where required although in fairness I almost always use it for the waterline.
The formula of this product offers a lot of benefits, mainly that it is formulated without parabens, GMOs and sulphates but also it contrains skin balancing clay that reduces drying and flaking thorough the wear.
Sometimes I do think that these sort of claims are crazy but I can confirm that this eyeliner is still on at the end of a long working day. The pigmentation is brilliant, I can't speak for the other shades but Onyx is super black.
This eyeliner is pretty fantastic. The only thing for me is that I wonder how it would cope applying in warmer weather. So far I've used it in the winter time and I have to be very careful not to squish the nip into my waterline as it's so soft. That aside it works extremely well, the colour is great, it's long lasting (I'm talking 12 hour wear) and if you do want to use the smudging side then it's there a an option.
