I know you must be dying to see the inside of this beauty, well here it is!

isn’t she amazing?! This is tarte’s first colorful palette and boy oh boy did they nail it in my opinion. Not to mention the pigmentation is flawless.

Swatches are as Followed.

From top to bottom:

  • myth (matte nude)
  • magic (bronze)
  • wings (copper)

Last but not least the highlight

  • believe (pearl highlight)

I personally believe this palette is worth it to go pick up. Breath taking packaging, highly pigmented shadows… what more could you ask for? I do wish they would have added one or two more matte shades in here but since they didn’t that just means you’ll get use out of two palettes that day!

I highly recommend this palette.

This is going to be a relatively short post because there isn’t much to say other than YOU NEED THESE IN YOUR LIFE!!!!

Let’s start off with a few things to know about these babies.

Inside the box is unicorn tissue paper! What more could a girl ask for, am I right?!

tb2

Once you get past that beautiful tissue paper you see your beautiful new gold handled unicorn horn magic wand brushes!

Each brush has a unique color and propose (as stated below from left to right):

  • purple liquid foundation brush: dense, fluffy bristles pick up & apply cream or liquid foundations & primers
  • green blending eyeshadow brush: fluffy shadow brush defines the crease while blending out harsh lines
  • pink powder brush: applies just the right amount of foundation or finishing powder for an airbrushed look
  • blue shading eyeshadow brush: flat shading brush packs on base shadows & softens around the crease
  • magenta contour brush: dense, flat bristles create a perfectly controlled contour

This is an amazing set of brushes! They’re soft, light weight, and beautiful!

*The information I have gathered here for you today was from tarte’s website!

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette

Yes I  know this palette is not new but I found it for $14.99! Where would something that is normally $36 dollars be $14.99 you ask? MARSHALLS!

tfce1

I know the box says compare at $28 but all too faced 9 pan tins retail for $36.

The outside packaging is adorable! It features a leopard/cheetah print. Same size and shape as other too faced 9 pan tins.

tfce2

Enough about the outside, Im sure what you’re all waiting for is to see the inside!

tfce3

Beautiful selection of colors and the names are too stinking cute! I love how the too faced 9 pan tins all are seperated by day, classic, and fashion. It’s also nice that the last row can be used wet or dry or even as liner! Plus they all come with a little booklet over the mirror to show you three looks that you can achieve with each section! How awesome is that?

Now to show you the swatches! plus excuse my arm as I have a bit of an allergic reaction going on at the moment, I apologize.

Im going to do the swatches by row of day/classic/fashion.

As you saw above 3 shades are quite larger than the other 6, those shades are the top swatch of each photo.

  • Larger pans individually: Net wt. 2.0g/0.07 oz
  • Larger pans total: Net wt. 6.0g/0.21 oz
  • Smaller pans individually: Net wt. 0.9g/0.03 oz
  • Smaller pans total: Net wt. 5.4g/0.18 oz

All in All I personally think the two faced palettes are worth the $36 dollars but if you can find some of them cheaper then definitely pick them up!

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow – Duo Chrome Shades

You all know how much I love the glitter & glow liquid eyeshadows! So when I saw they were coming out with 3 duo chrome shades I almost fainted! These are part of stila’s summer collection, which im guessing has to do with Mermaids considering the mascot of this theme is indeed a mermaid. Im so excited about these so lets dive on in!

First off these have the same outside packaging except where the name is there’s little mermaid scales!

smm1

This collection features three shades ($24 each):

  • sunset Cove (Pink Gold)
  • Sea Siren (Pink Blue)
  • Into the Blue (Blue Purple)

I however only purchased two, these are the two I knew I would use the most. They look like nothing special inside the tube but once you have them swatched wow they’re amazing.

Left: sunset cove

Right: sea siren

I did swatches at two different angles to try and show you the duo chromatic effect.

Top: sunset cove

Bottom: sea siren

My consensous is if you love glitter and duo chrome…. YOU NEED THESE IN YOUR LIFE.

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation

We all know how makeup companies have collections within that company, right? Well Double Duty Beauty is Tarte’s ulta exclusive collection. When you hear double you automatically think two of something, correct? All of the products in this line have two purposes and this one happens to have skin care benefits! Makeup with skin care benefits!!!!

Also on each of these products there is a cute little quote! The powder came in a little purple bag with the words “make today beautiful”. As pictured below:

This particular product is a powder foundation which I would say gives a nice medium coverage, and is amazing for setting your foundation.It also comes with a little puff to apply the powder if you prefer those over brushes. The actual compact of the powder is a shiny gold metallic. As pictured below:
