Tarte Mermaid Shine Metallic Seaglass Eyeshadow Set

Tarte-Mermaid-Shine-Metallic-Seaglass-Eyeshadow-Set-main
I really love these creamy liquid-to-powder glittery metallic shadows the brands have been coming out with lately. See here and here. The texture is stunning and they are really pigmented. These differ from just a straight glitter in that the glitter is suspended in a long lasting cream. Some are the same color of the glitter and some are not.

The latest in on the craze is from TARTE COSMETICS and their Mermaid Shine Metallic Seaglass Eyeshadow Set ($28 @ tartecosmtics.com).

Tarte Cosmetics Chrome Paint Shadow Pots

Tarte-Chrome-Paint-Shadow-Pot-in-Steel-the-Show-Fire-Dancer-Pot-of-Gold
Wow are these pigments messy! But oh so worth the mess!

What it is: TARTE Chrome Paint Shadow Pots - Your secret to a high-gleam gaze & the richest, most vibrant eyeshadow you’ve ever seen – the mirror-effect loose pigment melts instantly & stays put for hours. Choose from 9 shades for $22 @ tartecosmetics.com, sephora.com, ulta.com.

My take: these are meant to be applied with your fingers (yeah)! I tried them with a brush and nope, fingers work best as your skin warms up the formula to make it easy to spread. The powders are super creamy and blend really well.

Tarte Foundation Paddle Vs. Tarte Foundation Brush

Tarte-Full-Coverage-Companion-VS-Paddle-to-Perfection-brush-battle
It’s a battle of the brushes with two from TARTE!

In the left corner it’s the Full Coverage Companion Foundation Paddle ($28 @ tartecosmetics.com)

What it is: a flat “brush” with a silicone applicator, resulting in zero product waste for fuller coverage that looks natural.

 

In the right corner is Paddle to Perfection Foundation Brush ($28 @ tartecosmetics.com, ulta.com)

What it is: a cruelty-free & vegan paddle foundation brush with supersoft, densely-packed bristles.

Tarte-Full-Coverage-Companion-VS-Paddle-to-Perfection-brush-backs

I’m pretty used to the bristle brushes, as we all are, and these silicone sponges have been all over Instagram in the last year. I tried one a few months ago but not sure I really gave it a fair try, so I welcomed this challenge.

Tarte's New Totally Matte Lip Paints Are Here!

A full review and switches of the Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints from Tarte cosmetics.
Well here we are, another day, another liquid lipstick! And this is another version of the product but a little different. It’s from TARTE and it’s the Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20 @ dermstore.com). I reviewed the first round of them here so how are these different from the others? One difference is that these have a full dry down.

The State of the Union - Liquid Lipsticks

State-of-the-union

I think I’ve been around the liquid lipstick block a few times now and with the latest ones I’ve tried being on the indie side, I have some more observations. It seems that just about every brand is coming out with their own version these days, which is great, but not so great when you kinda know what formula works for you, and you don’t get it when you open the tube. If you’re on the liquid lipstick (will abbreviate to LL) bandwagon, do you know which form you like best? I think I do, now that I’ve tried quite a few different brands:

Chanel, Wet N Wild, Tarte, Buxom (part of BareMinerals), ColourPop, Motives, Cailyn Cosmetics, L’Oreal, Make Up For Ever, Stila, Laura Mercier, Merle Norman, NARS, Lime Crime, Ofra Cosmetics, Fyinnae, Maybelline, Ciate London, L'Oreal, Napoleon Perdis, Houglass Cosmetics, CoverGirl, LipSense by SeneGence, Giorgio Armani, Sephora, Kat Von D, MAC, Makeup Monster, LA Splash Cosmetics, Caked, Beauty Bakerie.

Brands on my list to try: The new ones from Smashbox, Anastasia Beverly Hills (I know, I know, I'm like the only one on the planet but I've read mixed reviews), Jeffree Star, Milani (drugstores are always out of the Amore Mattes!), Lonely Planet.

Splurge or Save – What U Need This Summer

Face-Mist-$$$-or-$
All face mists are not created equal, which is what I thought for many years. I go through a few face mists each summer. They’re so totable and great for a quick refresh on the go. Here are two I love.

$$$TARTE COSMETICS Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Mist ($25/2.5oz @ tartecosmetics.com and sephora.com) – you’ll love this multi-tasker this season! It’s a face primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist and skin refresher. This one also contains their Rainforest of the Sea antioxidant complex to help nourish the skin. Yaaas!

$LA ROCHE-POSAY Thermal Spring Water Essential ($12.99/5.2oz @ target.com) – this thermal water is a super fine mist of antioxidant-rich spring water. This one feels so good on the skin when it's super hot so I have one of these cans tucked in a few different places.

April Beauty Favorites

April-Favorites-2
As we come to the close of April, I’ve been frantically testing out products I think are worthy of getting the favorite of the month tag. Here are a few I recommend. 

1. FRESH Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen SPF 30 ($25 @ fresh.com, sephora.com) – Since it’s in a stick form, you can slide it in your purse and never worry about spillage. Now there’s no excuse for not wearing SPF, right?

2. IT COSMETICS Heavenly Luxe You Sculpted! #18 Contour & Highlight Brush ($34.50 @ itcosmetics.com) - So why don’t I have a brush like this in my collection? I didn’t realize how much I needed one in this shape until I saw this one! Isn’t that always the case? Love this one for (trying) to sculpt my cheeks and to brush under the jaw line. 

3. KISS USA Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick in Red Mangrove ($2.99 @ kissusa.com) – Wait, did you even know this brand made anything beside lashes and fake nails? I didn’t! I saw a few YouTube videos raving about their matte lipsticks so I had to try them and they are really all that. If you like a little moisture with your matte lippies then these are for you and how about that price?? I picked mine up at my local beauty supply store.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter ($26 @ benefitcosmetics.com) – This is such a nice matte pinky nude highlighter that can be use anywhere on the face. Lately it’s been ruling the tops of my cheeks.

5. CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream ($26.50 @ clinique.com and sephora.com) – I’ve never needed an eye cream more than in the last few months for some reason. #aging. This one is light on the skin and on the purse strings. It hydrates, depuffs and really seems to wake me up.

6. ELIE SAAB ‘Le Parfum Rose Couture’ Eau de Toilette ($80/1.6oz, $108/3oz only @ nordstrom.com) – Anything rose always welcomes springtime for me and I’ve worn this one non-stop since I got it. Orange flower, jasmine, rose nectar, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli, mandarin tree blossom, gardenia and warm honey rose. Every note says feminine.

7. TARTE COSMETICS Rainforest of the Sea Wipeout Color-Correcting Palette ($45 @ dermstore.comsephora.com) – You don’t need to suffer from any kind of discolorations on your skin anymore! Color-correcting is all the rage for a reason. It works! This one has 6 creams shades to get your skin on point.

The Lippie That's More than a Lippie

Tarte-Cosmetics-Drench-Lip-Color-Lipsticks-main
I’ve just been living in a liquid lipstick vortex for the past few months but trying out these TARTE COSMETICS Drench Lip Splash Lipsticks ($22/2.4g @ tartecosmetics.com and sephora.com) really brought me down to earth, and nicely I might add. They’re part of the Rainforest of the Sea Collection, which recently came out.

Talking Spring with Tarte Cosmetics

The lipstick liquid trend is still going, and the newest addition to this trend is Tarte's Tarteist Lip Paints. Check out this full review and swatches with Cybele Says.

Spring with Tarte Cosmetics


The new Tarteist Lip Paints ($20 @ ulta.comdermstore.com) are TARTE’s answer to the current liquid lipstick trend. 10 shades wear the name and are part of the Spring 2016 Collection coming out in January. I know, Spring-talk already!!

Each mint smelling formula is not like your average liquid lipstick in that these don’t have that serious dry down. They are more like these. Yes, the super matte ones last on lips for hours but can be drying after a few. These don’t dry lips out and don’t have that long-ass commitment either, not that I dislike the super mattes; there’s certainly a time and place for both formulas on this earth.

Q's Answered on the Most Game-Changing Product of 2015

I had a few questions emailed to me from readers after this feature the other day on the hows and whats of COVER FX’s Custom Cover Drops so I wanted to address them here. When it comes to HOW to apply it, I consider this product kind of an at-home beauty experiment; a DIY, if you so please, in the sense that you should apply it however is comfortable for you.

Cover-FX-Custom-Cover-Drops-drop-and-sunscreen-on-palette-for-site

Here are a few different ways I’ve tried: above I'm showing a drop next to some plain sunscreen on a tray I use to mix paints on when I’m crafting. On a side note, literally hours after I took this photo, I got Beauty Blender’s Sur.face Pro, which is great because it’s made just for mixing makeup! Now I have a tray for each.

So you can mix your Custom Cover Drops with your product on a tray or add the drop/s to a product in your hand, or if you’re mixing it with a primer, I’ve also put a squirt of product and a few drops on the back of my hand and then mixed them together with the brand's Liquid Foundation Brush ($38). But I nixed that after I started thinking about how the products might just be sinking into the back of my hand so I switched back to mixing on the tray.

So I guess it’s up to you on HOW you want to mix the drops and a face product together.

Products-I-mix-with-Cover-FX-Custom-Cover-Drops

The other question I received was with WHAT can you mix it with? I’d say 99% of your face products! Like I’ve been mixing a few drops with products I’ve been trying in the past few weeks - Cover FX’s Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment ($38/1oz @ sephora.com), Murad’s Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($65/1oz @ nordstrom.com and ulta.com) and Tarte’s Maracuja Neck Treatment ($49/1.7oz @ tartecosmetics.com and sephora.com). And the pigment drops blend in beautifully and tints them all my shade!

If you have any other questions about Cover FX’s new Custom Cover Drops, I’ll be having a Twitter Party tomorrow, Friday, March 20th from 3pm to 4pm EST, just to talk about them! Join the chat by using the hashtag #dropportunity and looking forward to talking to you then! And I'll be giving away some bottles of the Custom Cover Drops.
