Tinted Moisturizer -Tarte Cosmetics -Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

Oh, now *this* is a BEAUTIFUL tinted moisturizer and just what I've been searching for for a long time. It is silky-smooth, blends effortlessly (no blending tool required - fingers work just fine with this one), does not ball up over my moisturizer, and looks extremely natural on the skin. I love that it's 100% physical blocker, and surprisingly this doesn't feel heavy on the skin like some all-physicals can. The coverage is light, but it does cover nicely, and it wears very well on me through an entire day. My skin is getting drier as I'm getting older, but I still get a little oily in the nose and chin areas - this doesn't wear off in those areas and doesn't make my skin feel dry in other areas, either (I do use a light moisturizer underneath). The shade Light is a perfect match for me - it is a light shade with a very soft yellow undertone. For reference, my foundation is Chantecaille Alabaster. I will absolutely buy this again, I just love it!



Foundations -Tarte Cosmetics -Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation

As someone with dry skin, I'm always on the lookout for a hydrating foundation since foundation has the tendency of looking cakey and settling in my facial lines. The foundation wears well on my face and seems to at least retain the moisture in my face, which is definitely rare amongst all of the top-rated foundations I've tried in the Sephora-Ulta sphere. This foundation seems to have the same formulation as the Gel Hybrid foundation in the Double Duty line that they used to have at Ulta, but with different packaging, so if you liked the Gel Hybrid one then you should get this. I prefer this new packaging (big doe foot applicator) over the Gel Hybrid's jar packaging, but the bottle is still pretty heavy, which is minorly annoying for travel but not a deal breaker. However, I've always had issues finding a shade match in Tarte's line (I seem to be in between shades and undertones with Tarte), so I'm only going to repurchase this if I can't find another foundation that's hydrating but matches my skin tone better.

Concealers -Tarte Cosmetics -Rainforest of the Sea⢠Aquacealer Concealer

I've been using Maybelline's instant rewind concealer for a long time, and decided to try out other concealers for a change such as this one. I don't need a lot of coverage under my eyes, so I stay away from thick and dense concealers. For example, I've used Mac's popular pro longwear concealer, but it reveals my pores as it has a very thick consistency. This concealer was a great change to the instant rewind. Here is a list of some of the differences I noticed between the two concealers.
- This concealer is runnier, but I prefer it that way as it is more hydrating (I have dry/combo skin)
- It is much more brightening under the eyes
- My pores are less noticeable
- A little goes a long way- a lot of makeup artists on youtube do an inverted triangle under their eyes with concealers (I used this technique for the instant rewind). DO NOT FOLLOW THEIR WAYS for this concealer. You only need to apply (extremely) tiny dots under your eyes (I do two dots under my inner corner, and one tiny dot on the outer corner), and sweep it gently. This amount also covers the eyelids.

This concealer is great for dry, and very dry skin types, since it does not become matte/cakey/flaky. I usually don't set my under eye concealer with powder (I choose not to!), and it lasts me the whole day. I also tested this with flash photography, and haven't noticed any white flash back (Y).

As much as I love the formula and look to this concealer, it is quite pricey, and the packaging is not convenient to carry in your daily makeup bag. However, like me, hopefully you won't need to reapply it again after you leave the house :)

Eyeliner -Tarte Cosmetics -Sex Kitten Eyeliner

Sex kitten seems to be a revamp of Tarte's older Lights, Camera, Precision Liner. Same soft, slightly floppy felt tip, same weakly securing cap (although it has been replaced by a cutesy kitten face!!!), same fingertip resting texture and shape location... I believe this is supposed to be a longwear liner but it doesn't perform very well in that area. It is very, very black. However this is not the best thing as it does not stay secured through the whole day at times.

This is worth trying if you find it on sale, but their are plenty of other, cheaper liners that work just as well. I do dislike that tarte claims some of their products to be preservative free. I would like any item I am placing near my eyes to be maintain in both chemical composition and safely resistant to bacteria. I would rate this at 3.5 lippies.
