Review: Tarte Clay Pot Waterproof Eyeliner in Rose Gold

I’m a big fan of anything that’s rose gold, it’s kind of a weakness for me. Incorporating rose gold into makeup products has only increased my love of the colour. Cue me managing to order Tarte’s eyeliner in Rose Gold. Package wise, it’s housed in a cute little jar with a gold lid. A bit of a package switch up from other Tarte eyeliners I’ve owned. Taking off the lid reveals the beautiful product placed inside. The colour just upon initially glancing at it is absolutely gorgeous. Here’s where things start to go a little downhill. I grabbed an angle brush and tried to apply the product as a liner. It was a no go. This product, although beautiful, is too sheer and sparkly to act as a liner. The consistency and opacity reminds me of a cream eyeshadow. Call me disappointed. Does this product work as a liner? Sure, if you have the time to spend twenty years building up the product to get a meh liner or prefer sheer liner. Personally, this does not cut it for me. As a cream eyeshadow, it applies nicely, wears well, and so forth, but that’s not what I was hoping for. It retails for $25.00 (Canadian) for 0.08oz of product.


  1. Colour, this rose gold shade is so unique and absolutely stunning
  2. Eyeshadow base, work well for this purpose as the colour is so nice and the pigmentation is good for this purpose


  1. Too sheer to use as a liner, which is literally what this product is meant to be
  2. Wear time is a hard meh, I found it began to fade as a cream eyeshadow within a few hours
  3. Not smudge proof, upon rubbing my eye my hand became covered in pink sparkles
  4. Extremely sparkly, not exactly the rose gold shade I was hoping for
  5. Waterproof claims did not stand up, I was not surprised since this product was made up of entirely sparkles
  6. Price, retails for $25.00 (Canadian) for .08oz of product
