Contour -Tarte -Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette

on 7/17/2018 12:54:00 PM


This was an impulse buy at ULTA and I regret nothing. The packaging and smell of these powders is divine! I'd say this is wayyyy more practical/staple piece than the Pro Glow palette (which I received in my FFF summer box). These powders are pigmented, the first time I applied this without tapping off the excess it looked like I had a huge bruise underneath my cheekbones. The left two shades are great for setting concealer, and the middle two bronzer shades are great for both contouring but also bronzing. I sweep a huge kabuki brush across all four bronzers when I want to bronze my neck and chest, although I have used the shimmery bronze shades on my face and by the time I'm done blending you can't see the glitter/shimmer, more of just a slight sheen. I'd repurchase if I ever ran out!

Eye Shadow -Tarte -Love, Trust & Fairy Dust Eyeshadow Palette

on 7/17/2018 12:01:00 PM


For some reason, if I use the word F---- my videos get demonetized, so I will simply refer to this as the Tarte Love Trust and F---- Dust Eye Shadow Palette. This new Tarte palette is very beautiful outside and inside. This contains some light mattes and darker mattes as well as a variety of shimmer colors in different berry tones. The full palette is a little large but the nice thing is that all the individual pans are removeable so you could place them in a different palette for travelling. The colors are all pretty pigmented and the icy shade in the middle can be used to highlight the corners of your eyes. A beautiful berry themed palette, if you need some berry mattes or shimmers this is a nice option. My swatches and video review can be seen here:

Foundations -Tarte -Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

on 7/16/2018 9:12:00 PM


I don't understand why people love this foundation so much. It left my skin looking flat. It was demolished after a few hours by my oily skin. It is like a tinted clay mask. Overhyped!!! I returned it to ULTA. I NEVER return things to Ulta.

Blush -Tarte -Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Exposed

on 7/15/2018 8:53:00 PM


It's the HG of powder blushes. Period, end. Really difficult to put too much on, and blends with almost all motifs. Sometimes, if I want something in a powder blush that is more peachy or distinctly pink, I have some go-tos from Laura Mercier (as well as from Tarte) to alternate with. But Exposed works with almost everything. The Tarte clay blushes apply evenly and have relatively good staying power, so I recommend the brand and product in and of itself. But Exposed IS everything. :-) It may even be almost all things to almost all people.

Treatments (Face) -Tarte -Knockout Tingling Toner Treatment


Preface about my skin: Acids have been a longstanding staple in my skincare routine to combat acne, refine pores, even out skin tone and prevent signs of aging - the vast majority have been good to great, but nothing was ever a one and done product that dealt with all my concerns. I've always had to mix and match. I was very curious to try this out when I heard it was very similar to Biologique Recherche's legendary Lotion P50 and saw that it had lactic and salicylic acids along with malic, citric, and phytic acids. I live in a humid climate and during the summers end up dealing with fungal acne/malassezia along my jawline that wasn't budging with regular use of Drunk Elephant's TLC Framboos serum's mix of glycolic and salicylic acid.

Thus far, with a few weeks of use, this is my favorite acid product I've used - its slowly clearing the stubborn fungal acne and has been fantastic in a cystic pimple, taking it from painful and swelling to shrinking and painless in two days, and has made my prominent sebaceous filaments on my chin much less noticeable. Skin also keeps the just exfoliated softness into the next day. Any purging I've had has been very limited to a few small, non-inflamed whiteheads. I was expecting it to be good due to other reviews, but since Tarte has only begun expanding into skincare I wasn't expecting something that was holy grail status. I will update in a few months to see if I continue to have such good results. The $39 for 150 mL price tag also feels fair - per mL this is a little more expensive than Paula's Choice liquid BHA or Glossier's The Solution. The Biologique Recherche would run about $67 or so for 150 mL, a definite winner in that comparison.

Packaging is simple, but sturdy, opaque plastic and the lid closes tightly. Simple, but has what it needs to keep the product from light exposure.

I have not used P50, so I cannot make a direct comparison to if this is a dupe or not, but I will say this did not smell anywhere near as bad as I was expecting from reviews comparing the two - just slightly vinegary and it dissipates quickly.
