I've never tried Tarte before. It's a little pricey, but this looked so cute in the catalog. This comes in the tradition packaging, but the color is in a cream-like form. The color is very light with medium shimmer. I think I'll be using it quite a bit in the summer months. Was pretty wet/greasy feeling when first applied, but it dried very nicely on my hand. Would buy this again.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

This was very drying for me. It worked for the first couple of weeks, but my skin dried out and broke out not long after. I have combination skin, and nothing has ever dried me out like this. Would not recommend.
This is a must have for summer. BEAUTIFUL peachy-flesh pigment. I can see this in nail polish, lip gloss, a highlighter for cheeks, and a beautiful summer wash on the eyes. Pro store still has it for those that missed it at the stores.
Very pretty bronze pink. The powder is very soft, so a little goes a long way. I'm an NW 20 and it looks very nice. A perfect summer color.
This is one of my new favorites. It has a little more slip than I like, but it's very pretty just the same. It reminds me of regular Hubba Bubba gum when it comes to color. It's a pink/peach color that gives your lips a hint of color. It has no taste to it, and the smell is almost non-existent. The tube has a little shimmer in it, but it's not overly shimmery on the lips. I don't care about the price. It has the same amount of product as MAC Lipglass, so don't let price persuade you!
This is a nice summer color!
Self Tanners -Clinique - Quick Bronze self-tanner self-sun body

This is my first time using a self tanner. I found this to be very easy to use because it felt water based. This made it easier to spread and make even. It does have a certain smell to it, but nothing offensive or terrible. Just put on a little at a time, and the streaks are a no-show. Would use this product again.
The glitter is very small, so it's easier to wear and much prettier on the eyes. This set includes Transcendence (Opal colored glitter), Higher Love (pretty pink), and Gateway (silver). These are $12 each, and you're getting 3 for $26. That's almost one for free. I love the glitters. Wear them sparingly at the office, but receive many compliments.
I love this product. One side has a gold shimmer to it, and the other is sort of irridescent. It's nice for a simple look, or you can put it over something to give the slightest bit of shimmer. I highly recommend if you like simple things during your day!!!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. The color looked dark in the container, but it's very light on the skin. It has just enough shimmer to it (not a whole lot), and the color makes you feel like you walked out in the sun for an hour. If this becomes an LE, I may just have to guy buy extras! I highly recommend this for anyone that just wants a kiss of color.
Eye Primer -Clinique - Touch Base For Eyes in Silver Lighting [discontinued]

I don't think a day goes by that I don't use this product. I use the Canvas touchbase or foundation to even out my eyes, but I use the Silver Lighting when I want my color to stand out more. As with any touchbases, long exposure to air will dry it out. When you close it after each use, make sure you SNAP it shut, or it will dry out. Absolute must have
I really like these colors. I know there really isn't much shimmer, but the colors are light and neutral for the spring. To add extra shimmer, I just use Clinique Touchbase in Buff Lighting underneath. It brings the color out even more!
I'm probably one of the very few people that really likes this trio. I know that there isn't much shimmer, but the colors are still very pretty and neutral (which is what I want for spring). To add shimmer to these trios, I just use Clinique Touchbase in Silver lighting, or their new spring touchtint in the white color.
I bought two of their shadows on a whim (Verdigris and Olivine). I love this line already! The colors go on so easily. I don't really mind the packaging. IMO, it's more fun to try and make up your own makeup palette. I highly recommend this line to anyone still on the fence about trying it!
The colors in this palette are nice. I guess I was expecting something a little more opaque. It's nice for a day where you don't want much color, or it you want a highlighter. I wouldn't go out of my way to find this again though.
I don't know how I lived without this stuff before?!? It makes everything sparkle! I love wearing it on its own for a simple look as well. It's $20, but it's worth every penny
