Ever since I used up an entire Tarte Park Avenue Princess to pan, I’ve been wanting to love another Tarte product. Tarte Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel ($21) came so very close. Before buying, I tried it in the color Taupe under spotty Sephora lighting. For brow products, I’ve found remarkably few companies that understand that “Taupe” does not contain red tones. Of the ones that I’ve tried, they are Tom Ford, Shu Uemura (Seal Brown) and Nars. Despite its many strengths, Tarte’s taupe does not fit into that category.
