BRAND SPOTLIGHT : TARTE COSMETICS

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you’re not, then come on and join me now!), then you would already have an idea about my recent love and obsession with Tarte Cosmetics. They are on a roll with their releases and while in the past I wasn’t wowed by what I tried, recently I have been really loving the new bits I’ve tried.

Just like everyone else I know, there are somethings I have loved in the past from Tarte Cosmetics and some that I just didn’t get along with. But recently, I am not sure if my preferences have changed or Tarte has upped their game (which they did actually as you will see), I am blown away by all of these.

Now, didn’t that knock your socks off ? I fell so hard for this, that I actually wore colorful looks probably every time I used it. It might look intimidating for a neutral lover, but hear me out, how about using one of these as a lower lash liner or inner corner highlight if you really are feeling it (I wore it both ways, and loved it !) ?  it’s the festival season and also spring is here, this is just the best way to amp up your look.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 HR Highlighter (28$)

I got Stunner (opalescent highlight), in mini size as a GWP at Sephora and bought Sparkler (rose gold highlight). Where have these been ? You know I love my glow and highlight. And I do have a wide selection of highlighters, but these are a bit different for me. They blend in, but also are blinding yet not too much ? It is SO hard to explain.

These are so so beautiful ! I have also swatched the highlighter from the Make Believe in Yourself Palette in shade Believe next to these. Believe is a duo chrome, that is subtler than these. It is stunning on the cheeks though. Sparkler shown below.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 HR Blush (28$)

I have no idea why I never tried this cult favorite before. I got the shade Paaarty as a birthday perk back in January but only recently started using this. It a matte warm coral light pink with plum. It is so stunning. I normally never wear matte blushes, but this is seriously gorgeous on the cheeks, especially for spring, I think it would make a gorgeous everyday blush, that’s not too over the top.

From Sephora:

What it is:
A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.
What it does:
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish that lasts an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by tarte’s bestselling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skin tones.

Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result: Blush that wears better, longer, and truer.
