For the last couple weeks, I’ve been rigorously testing Tarte 4 Day Stay Lash Stain.
I wore this mascara while I worked, partied, showered, and pulled near-all-nighters. And, yes, I even committed a major beauty sin (multiple times) and slept in this mascara.
So Does Tarte 4 Day Stay Lash Stain work? Yes, it works brilliantly…but not for four days.
In addition to its ability to add a respectable balance of length and thickness to lashes while tightly holding lash curl, this mascara smudged under only two extreme conditions:
A warning about this mascara: If you’re not experienced with applying and removing waterproof mascara, 4 Day Stay is not for you. If you make a boo-boo and smear this mascara on your eyelids while applying it, it can be very difficult to remove without upsetting your eye makeup.
Similarly, this mascara requires time, patience, and an excellent waterproof makeup remover (I used Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover) in order to take it off. If you’re not willing to take the time to correctly remove this mascara, you’re not going to be a happy beauty camper.
The Bottom Line on Tarte Four Day Stay Lash Stain: Though 4 Day Stay didn’t actually stay on for four days, the fact of the matter is that it lasts far longer than you would ever need it to. Because of this amazing staying power as well as the mascara’s well-rounded ability to lengthen and thicken lashes while holding curl, Tarte 4 Day Stay Lash Stain is the closest I’ve come to finding my Holy Grail Mascara.
Though not recommended for beauty beginners, I highly recommend 4DS to experienced mascara moxies.
I can’t wait to hear what you makeup moxies think of this mascara. Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments!
