Why people love it
  • Vegan friendly
  • Lasts for 12+ hours
  • Double-ended design features a liquid liner and a pencil

One of Allure’s Best of Beauty award winners in 2016. The ophthalmologist-tested formula is safe for ladies who wear contact lenses.

Some users gripe that the pencil end of this double-sided eyeliner runs out too quickly. If you experience the same issue, you may want to switch to a traditional eyeliner pencil.


Formula: We’ve got no complaints about the cruelty-free formula for this Tarte Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner. Amazonian clay helps the liner remain on your eyes without weighing them down, while a combination of vegan ingredients help produce an attractive pigment and silk-like smoothness. You won’t find any parabens or phthalates inside, and the formula is ophthalmologist tested.

Performance: Power through your day in this long-lasting eyeliner. The double-sided applicator features a pencil liner and a liquid liner, both of which easily withstand the demands of work or play for 12 hours. The liner doesn’t smudge or run, and it pairs well with other vegan-friendly cosmetics from Tarte.

Ease of Use: It’s fairly easy to line your lids with this cruelty-free eyeliner, but a handful of reviewers warn that you should press down on the pencil end gently if you don’t want it to break. You can also try refrigerating it for 15 or 20 minutes before you do your makeup; that makes it less soft.

Price: We’ve seen prices ranging from $24 to $38 for this double-sided eyeliner from Tarte. Sounds pricey, but to be honest, we don’t mind forking over this amount for a vegan beauty product. If it's in your budget, we definitely recommend giving this product a try.
