Tarte Thursday

I just went to Ulta and picked up a couple things.  I was only supposed to go get my favorite hair spray, but they stopped carrying it…sad day 😕  Instead, I found a new palette and I’ve always wanted the rose gold eyeliner from Tarte.  The eyeliner is the Tartist Pro glitter liner and it retails for $24.  The palette is called “Don’t Quit Your Day Dream.”  It retails for $29.  I will do a look with these two products this weekend and post it either Sunday or Monday.  I will be at cheer camp this weekend and won’t be home until about 3:30-4 on Father’s Day.  Here a couple of pictures!

Happy Thursday all!  I’m hoping to have a new YouTube video soon!

Mini Haul

I had $50 to spend at Ulta so of course, I wanted to try some new products from NYX.  I have one product not pictured, which is the Honey Dew.  I’ve already used it and love it.  No, it is not sticky if you were thinking that 😄 I’ve also already tried the Totak Control foundation and I love that too.  It is a dropper foundation.  If you’ve tried MAC’s lightweight foundation, it’s just like that, but cheaper!  It retails for about $13.  It’s full coverage & it’s lightweight.  I feel like there’s nothing on my face when I have it on.

I haven’t tried the illuminator stick yet, but it’s such a great copper color.  Here is a swatch below:

I wanted to try their eyebrow wand.  Ive never done my eyebrows before so thought I would give this a whirl.  The best thing I bought is the Tarteist Pro To Go.  The colors are gorgeous and I will be creating a Valentine’s Day look with this palette!

I LOVE THESE COLORS!  This little palette retails for about $23.  My favorite color is the gold in the middle and the shiner color on the very bottom.  I like all of these colors though.  Everyday and night look ❤️

Monday Favorites

I haven’t done favorites in a while so here are some products I’ve been using and loving.

  1. Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation
    This foundation retails for $40 at Sephora or at Ulta.  It stays on literally all night and has full coverage.  It’s been one of my go-to foundations when I’m getting ready.  I am in the color 6.0, which has a bit of a yellow undertone.  I don’t have any streaks with application, and it goes on very smoothly!

    2. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip – Love Bug
    I like to wear this as a winter color.  I’m pretty sure it is a fall lip, but I love this color too much to give it up for the season.  It retails for $6 at Colourpop.  You can’t beat that price!  If you spend $30 or more, you get free shipping.  This color is kind of a mix between burnt red to brown color.  You can catch a swatch on my last post here.

    3. Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer
    I have not used another primer when I bought this one by Marc Jacobs.  The one I tried using before this was by e.l.f., but that primer felt oily.  This one smells and feels great.  Makes my foundation application so much easier.  This retails for $44 at Sephora.  Its lasted for a while now.  I haven’t bought a new one.  I don’t do my makeup every day, but a lot goes a long way.

    4. Morphe Deluxe Blending Fluff
    This is the MB13 Morphe brush.  One of my all time favorite brushes.  It blends really well and it is very soft.  I use it every time to blend out my crease or any shadows from lid to crease.  It retails for about $5, and you can purchase it on the Morphe site.  Technique brushes are everything.

    5. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Highlight Palette

    Probably one of my favorite highlighter palettes.  Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea collection is one of my favorite collections by this brand.  I think they revamped their brand and is definitely now competing with the others just as well.  That’s just my opinion.  I like to use the color Sunlight and Moonlight and mix them both.  It gives a nice pop.  This palette retails for $42 at Sephora.

    That is all for now beauties.  For all of those that have subscribed to me since day one, I appreciate it, and thank you for being patient with me and my posts.
