Day 2: Tarte

"In my years-long search for a high performing toxin-free mascara (hey, a girl can dream), I recently stumbled across this lash enhancer. And while at first consideration I was skeptical (i.e. reluctant to add another step to my increasingly complicated beauty routine—eye cream, primer, what?), the promise of long, lush lashes ultimately won me over. Now, I actually look forward to my nightly ritual of painting my lash line with this ultra rich (and all-natch!) oil. It definitely feels luxurious, and the results are almost immediate. I may not have any need for that elusive mascara after another few weeks." —Charlotte Herrold, associate fashion editor   Tarte MultiplEYE Lash Enhancer ($86), at sephora.ca.   The 10 best beauty investments to make now
