I bought this palette for my kit because I needed a good neutral palette for the weddings I book... I was definitely impressed. Tarte is one of my favorite professional cosmetic brands because their products perform really well, and are free of a lot of harmful chemicals & synthetic dyes... I also love how this palette comes with a dual sided brush, eye liner, and lid primer... I think I paid about $45 for it. The mix of shimmery & matte colors are great, and you can replace the shadows when needed instead of buying an entire new palette.
I am a big fan of the Yes To products... The Carrots & Cucumbers lines are my favorite! These towelettes do an amazing job of removing makeup & dirt, refreshing your complexion while still remaining gentle on sensitive skin. They take off even the most stubborn cosmetics like mascara... My only dislike is that they are almost $6 a pack (30 towelettes), & I go through them like crazy... They are definitely worth it though... especially because they are over 98% natural & free of parabens, SLS & a few other harmful ingredients that are in most other similar products.
Favorite lipstick of all time!
I first tried this lipstick about a year ago, and since then I have gone through 6 tubes! It is my go-to, every day wear... I always had a hard time finding a lipstick that had everything I want.... The photo finish lipsticks are amazing. I don't like super glossy, or super matte finishes on my lips, and this is the perfect balance... it is super pigmented, but it moisturizes really well. Plus Smashbox's products are free of parabens, & they are cruelty-free. I have only tried the "Pout" which is a babydoll/ bubblegum pink... but I am interested in trying "Charming," so if anyone with fair/ medium skin tones have tried that shade & like it, let me know! Otherwise, this product is well worth the $22.
I started out using the lavendar liquid soap as a body wash... Then I began using it to regularly shampoo my makeup brushes... Now, I use it as a face wash too! This soap is nothing short of amazing... it is one of the few brands that actually are natural and organic while being 100% chemical free. I love the lavendar and tea tree ones! Ps. I have sensitive/ combination skin and always have trouble finding products that are good for my body inside & out, while also keeping my skin looking and feeling beautiful... this is definitely a product that I will never stop using!
This super lightweight pressed powder is great for all different types of skin. Tarte’s Skinvigorating™ ingredients, vitamins A and E, pamper your skin and fight against free radical damage. This powder also contains SPF8 to protect against sun damage, and mineral pigments to help soften your complexion! I have super sensitive skin and I can wear this powder every day, and not even feel like I’m wearing it. I love being able to take off my makeup at night, and not feel guilty about wearing it all day, or worrying about it breaking my skin out. It has a flawless, buildable coverage and never looks cakey or dry. Tarte’s Provocateur Mineral Pressed Powder is available in 6 different shades, and can be purchased for $30 from Tarte.com, or at your nearest ULTA or Sephora.
If you love the Provocateur Mineral Pressed Powder, try Tarte’s Mineral Bronzer too! I have a light olive complexion, and I can never find a bronzer that compliments my skin tone. This bronzer comes in 2 different shades: Park Avenue Princess (Shimmery Gold), and Hotel Heiress (Deep Bronze Shimmer) and they are lovely! I have the Park Avenue Princess, and it is perfect for light to medium skin tones. The Hotel Heiress is ideal for deeper medium to darker skin tones. I love this bronzer because it is gentle on my skin like the pressed powder, and it instantly warms up my complexion, giving me a natural looking glow. Remember to apply your bronzer strategically. You don’t want to just brush it over your entire face, like you would a powder. Begin by defining your cheekbones, then apply a teenybit to your jaw line and forehead! You can purchase it for $29 from Tarte.com, or at your nearest ULTA or Sephora.
I first tried EOS lip balm a few months ago, and since then, have purchased several other flavors. As of right now, they have 6 different flavors available on their website. I’ve seen several places carry EOS products, such as ULTA, drug stores and even Wal-mart. They go for about $3.29 which is really reasonable considering the organic & natural ingredients; not to mention they last a super long time! Here are some other things to know about EOS:
