Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette Swatches

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette

Did I mention that Tarte has really been catching my eye lately? Every time I turn around, Tarte is coming up with something new to add to my ever expanding list. One of their latest releases is a limited edition blush palette for Summer 2016 featuring 4 blushes in Tarte’s iconic Amazonian Clay formula. The packaging looks a lot like my dear Tartelette in Bloom Palette with vibrant bursts of pink, purple and white which leaves me to believe it’s going to be a fabulous extension to my Tartelette Palettes for a full face look.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette Swatches

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Nothing warms a makeup junkie’s heart more than seeing limited edition palettes go on sale. It’s just magical! Last week, Ulta decided to close out 21 Days of Beauty with a bang by adding the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette as a Hot Buy for half off. For just $22.50, many of us were able to get our hands on Gwen Stefani’s personalized limited edition blush palette online and in stores at Ulta. Of course, it sold like hot cakes so everyone wasn’t able to catch such a great deal before it disappered. However, Sephora has decided to join in on the fun by marking down the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette to just $30. Yay!

Multitask in Style with Tarte’s Double Duty Beauty Collection

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Collection for Spring 2016

Did I mention that I was starting to develop a thing for Tarte? Tarte managed to finally spark my interest with the Tartelette Eyeshadow Collection and now they’re beginning to reel me in with the new Double Duty Beauty Collection now available exclusively at Ulta. I have to be honest. Before I went to the Tarte training I was not at all impressed or interested in the Double Duty Beauty Collection. Double ended beauty products have never really been my thing because they always seemed cheap to me. Then after seeing the amazing Rainforest of the Sea Collection that was rolling out exclusively at Sephora the Double Duty Beauty Collection just looked like a disappointment.

Then I went to the Tarte training for the Double Duty Beauty Collection and got a chance to see and play with everything in person. I guess seeing really is believing because I came outta there wanting almost everyone I touched that day. LOL! Usually when we see double ended makeup it looks and feels cheap and the quality is often shoddy. Not this time around! Tarte has actually managed to make fetch happen with their latest collection of multitasking makeup.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul: Day 7

Too Faced Peach Beach and Something About Berry Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush

Did I mention that Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty was going to make me broke? Because it is. Everyday there’s a new Beauty Steal that’s half off and way too tempting. Like today’s Too Faced Beauty Steal. I’ve had my eye on the Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Peach Beach for quite some time now so when I found out that they were going to be just $15 today I immediately made plans to purchase it. But you can’t purchase just one Too Faced product when it’s half off so I swatched Something About Berry and fell in love with it so I had to purchase that one too. It just makes sense right?

NYX Nude to Me Ombre Blush Review

NYX Nude to Me Ombre Blush

Have you ever spotted something and instantly thought to yourself, “Oh yeah that’s coming with me!” That’s exactly how I felt about the new NYX Nude to Me Ombre Blush the first time I saw it. The moment I laid eyes on it I knew I would love it. So I went ahead and swatched it when it popped up at my local Ulta and the next thing I knew I was snatching it up and heading to the registers with it. There’s 5 other shades in the Ombre Blush lineup but Nude to Me is hands down the must have of the bunch and there was no way I was leaving work without it!

NARS x Steven Klein Despair Cheek Palette Review

NARS Steven Klein Despair Cheek Palette

Makeup has always been a weakness for me but last holiday season it got really bad. So many brands were pumping out amazing sets and palettes that I just couldn’t resist them. Especially all those darn palettes! From eyeshadow palettes to cheek palettes, I was hauling them all and falling in love quickly because they were just oh so good. The only downside is that most of them were limited edition so I had to rush through swatches and reviews like a mad woman so you could get your hands on them too before they quickly disappeared. That’s the one thing I hate about limited edition products!

NYX Ombre Blush Now Available at Ulta!

NYX Code Breaker, Nude to Me Ombre Blush

Did I mention that NYX has been dominating this spring? Because they certainly are! In case you haven’t been keeping up, NYX has been making huge moves opening standalone boutiques as well as massively expanding their line to go from mass makeup to professional artistry. Which explains some of the big price hikes we’ve been experiencing lately as well as all of the department store dupes and rival products that we get to enjoy this spring. I’m not the biggest fan of the new products but I’m having a little bit of a hard time knocking NYX because the quality is definitely there and they’re quite innovative for a drugstore brand. I can dig it!

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Becca Afterglow Palette

Oh, Becca. You sure know how to make a girl glow! There were a lot of holiday collections that caught my eye last year but Becca took the gold. Hands down. I ended up with pretty much her entire holiday collection because it was oh so beautiful and I’m a complete highlight freak. That’s why I ended up grabbing the Afterglow Palette before it disappeared from my local Ulta. It’s a lovely cheek palette that features 3 Shimmering Skin Perfectors and 2 Mineral Blushes all wrapped in pretty pink metallic packaging. Perfect for Pink Wednesday!
