cosmetic clays

I had to work extremely early at work today, so I just took a quick picture of my makeup. I’m wearing my red inglot gel liner and sugarpill eyeshadows for the eyes, tarte and nyx for the cheeks, and nyx’s simply red lip cream in the shade candy apple for the lips

OVER HYPED: Tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner

As a beauty blogger I’m always on the hunt for new beauty products and I’m always drawn to exciting, innovative launches, but more often than not they usually turn out to be a gimmick. Sadly, as much as I love Tarte their new Tarteist Eyeliner was just that, a gimmick.  I loved the idea of the squeezable tube and my first impression was that it was a convenient and hygienic idea, but after several uses I found it just dispensed way too much product and I was left with more eyeliner than I needed. The eyeliner itself had a beautiful matte finish, but the colour pay off was sheer and disappointing. I found myself having to go over the line several times to get it black enough. Tarte claim this eyeliner is waterproof and long lasting, but every time I wore it I ended up with black smudges on my eyelid, all the way up to my brow bone… Whilst this liner may be a unique idea the formula itself was a disappointment and the only thing I liked was the brush.

My updated Tarte blush collection….clearly, I am obsessed with this product haha. All but two blushes (the shade Magic was bought for me by thepryncess and Natural Beauty was bought for me by annunakialessandra) were purchased by me. Some are permanent, but most of the shades I own are either discontinued or part of a limited edition set :(   If you’ve never tried tarte blushes, I highly, HIGHLY recommend
