tarte gifted amazonian clay smart mascara

I am very picky with my mascara and rarely use the same one for long. My recent love has been Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara ($19).

It does not dry out my lashes and it definitely gives some nice volume while remaining soft. I even get a little bit of length from it, especially from a second coat. When it comes time to remove, it washes of easily with makeup remover, but it is able to mostly last through the day without flaking. It is average at holding a curl - while it doesn't completely hold, it doesn't drag my lashes down either (...looking at you flawless definition mascara). I think the natural aspect is one of my favorite parts though. My eyes are easily irritated and this mascara does not bother me at all. Also, LOVE the brush style, not too big, not too small, not too dense, not too sparse.
