Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette Fall 2014

I’m always excited every season to see what Tarte releases. This Fall they have called their collection “Rainforest After Dark”. Oh my goodness, the packaging is so cute, except I wish they had used a monkey or something instead of a snake. I don’t like snakes.

Tarte Awakening Cheek Stain Review and Swatches

I’m a fan of Tarte’s cheek stains and their newest addition, Awakening, does not disappoint!

Laura Mercier Eye and Cheek Palette

Laura Mercier has released a new Eye and Cheek Palette for Spring of 2012. This is a limited edition product and a Sephora exclusive.  It includes six eye shadows and two blushes.  For $60 its a really good deal.  I’m in love!

The blushes are beautiful and the eye shadows are too.  They blend well. The right side of the palette is more purple based, while the left side is more neutral. The eyes shadows include matte and shimmer finishes.

The eye shadow shades are in  Buff Pearl, Tawny Apricot, Rich Cocoa, Pale Pink, African Violet and Black Plum. The cheek colors included are Rose Desire and Fresh Peach.

Are you planning on getting this palette.  Let me know!

TARTE AMAZONIAN CLAY FOUNDATION & MARACUJA BLUSH AND GLOW

I picked up two of Tarte’s new releases from their Spring 2012 launch.

I found the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation to be buildable with a light weight feeling, providing medium to full coverage depending upon how much you layer. Its very blendable and looks lovely on the face. I do recommend the foundation. It is long lasting and did not oxidize on my skin. It has an SPF 15 and is marketed as a “smart foundation”, adjusting to your skin type due to the Amazonian Clay. It retails for $38 for 1.7 oz of product. You can purchase it wherever Tarte products are sold.

I was not a huge fan of the Maracuja Blush and Glow. I wanted to love it, I really did, but the ratio of blush to luminizer was ridiculous. I got the shade “Candlelight” and the luminizer just did not highlight for my fair NC 20 skin. It did give a pretty glow to the foundation when mixed in with it. The blush is really beautiful. I wish they would sell it in stick form like Nars does with their Multiples. That would be awesome and I would buy them all! Although I love most of Tarte’s products and even love the blush part of the “Blush and Glow”, I cannot recommend this product due to the poor performance of the luminizer. It retails for $32 for 1oz of product. It is a Sephora exclusive. I just don’t love the luminizer as a highlight and at this price point, I think you would do better with Nars.
