Beauty: Tartelette in Bloom Palette – Two Looks.


Tartelette in Bloom Palette (Amanda Eifert)

——–
I have a love/hate relationship with eyeshadow palettes. I’m particularly, careful when I buy one because I need to be able to wear and look good in all or most of the colours in the palette for it to be worth it for me to buy. My longtime favorite has been Urban Decay Naked Basics for pretty brown/skin tone coloured shadow that works everyday and can be taken from day to night by adding definition in your eye crease or the outside corner of your crease with a darker shade. It is a wonderful matte palette from a dependable eyeshadow brand.

But, I have been searching for a palette with a bit more variety in it after using up my last Urban Decay Basic’s palette. I have

wanted a palette with some shimmer or sparkle in it, not all shades, but some. Also, I have wanted a palette that has a few more choices in the family of brown shades with at least three lighter colours. I have found this palette! It is the Tartelette in Bloom Palette by Tarte. I have other Tarte eyeshadow and blush and I adore that Tarte has natural Amazonian Clay based products with excellent pigment. The palette is $54.00 at Sephora but if you sign up for Tarte online you can often buy their products from five to thirty percent off your purchase on certain occasions.

Also, I would like to note that Tarte’s Lights, Cameras, Lashes mascara is awesome too. I have a sample from Tarte I’m currently using. It can also be found at Sephora for $25.00. It is great at coating every lash in mascara without missing lashes as some mascaras do. It can be bought in a waterproof formula ( Lights, Cameras, Splashes) which I think I’m going to have to try. But, I have the regular version, so I am going over it with a second coat of cheap waterproof mascara, so Tarte’s mascara doesn’t end up under my eyes. 

Also, it is important to ensure your eyeshadow lasts and stays put on your eyes by using an eye primer such as the one below by Urban Decay. However, I think if you use your regular face primer on your eyes, it will keep your eyeshadow lasting longer as well, and that’s one less product you need to buy — but it is up to you. 

Also, having the right tools helps when applying eyeshadow. I purchased these two eyeshadow brushes at Shoppers Drug Mart awhile ago and they are Shoppers Drug Mart’s own brand called Quo which you can find at Beauty Boutique online. Quo has a variety of makeup brushes. One Quo makeup brush line is cheaper and the other is more expensive; however, the more expensive line tends to last years (except their foundation brush). 

**Also, please remember to keep your brushes clean and bacteria free. Dish soap and shampoo ( tea-tree oil shampoo is ideal) are both superb ways to clean your brushes once a week or every two-weeks if that is all you can do. If you have a makeup brush that gets ‘wet’ such as your foundation brush, you definitely need to wash that one at least once a week to keep it clean.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Makeup Splurge


Recently, I found a coupon for Tarte makeup on Facebook for 30% off. Kate at http://www.thesmallthingsblog.com (one of my favorite blogs) has always raved about their Amazonian Clay foundation so I was pretty excited to try the foundation which is usually $49.00, for a cheaper price. I also purchased a shade of the Amazonian Clay Blush, and a Liquid Eyeliner Pen (the pen which I have already blogged about). Later, I read a blog on a Limited Edition Tarte Eyeshadow Palette and although it wasn’t available on http://www.tarte.ca I was able to purchase it on Sephora. I am happy with all my purchases and I would like to share the 3 I haven’t shared with you previously today.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12H- Full Coverage Foundation – $49.00 – (sephora.ca) – I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation for several reasons. First of all, it comes in many shades with both yellow and pink undertones. The ivory color with the pink undertones was perfect for me and is the best foundation match I’ve had in a long time.

The foundation is a bit different than other foundations I’ve tried because it is a cream foundation and not a liquid or a BB cream. It is quite thick so a very little goes a long way to spread across your face and give great coverage that leaves your skin UVA/UVB SPF 15 protected. You can also build up this foundation if you want thicker coverage.

In my mind, that this foundation is usually almost $50 works against it but what totally makes it worth it is the fact that you don’t need much foundation for each use. You do need to blend the foundation very well because of its viscosity and I recommend a great foundation brush to blend the foundation well.

Although, initially, the foundation change made me break out a bit after about a week my skin adjusted to the foundation and I have loved it ever since. I love that it stays on all day, does not come off easily, and provides excellent coverage even when you have a bit of a break out.

What made me extremely excited to try this foundation is that it is a mineral foundation made from Amazonian Clay and is free of Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic fragrances, Petrochemicals, Pthalates, GMO’s, and Triclosan — all things I would rather not have on my skin. Best of all, all most all of  Tarte’s make up is made without some of these unwanted ingredients.

Tarte Limited Edition Amazionian Clay EyeShadow Palette Limited Edition V1 – ($46.00) -(Sephora.ca) – I just received this palette last week and was really thrilled with it. It is a more neutral type palette so it has a lot of sparkly and matte browns as well as some skin colored shades that are sparkly and matte; it  also contains a beautiful sparkly purple and sparkly gold and copper.

There are many mixes of eye shadow looks that I (and you) can do with this palette and it’s 16 shades. The eye shadow has excellent pigmentation and sticks well, especially if you put an eye shadow base underneath your eye shadow — this eye shadow is budge proof.

It comes in a cute purple box with a pink ribbon and is also the perfect gift for a birthday or Christmas present for a special woman on your list. This eyeshadow is formulated without Parabens and Pthalates.

Tarte Amazionion Clay 12H Blush – (31.00) – (www.sephora.ca) – This long wear solar baked blush is amazing because it has great pigment and comes in so many shades. I bought it in a purplish-pink shade since I was out of that color and I have been very happy with the blush.

It is infused with natural clay from the Amazon river and it minimizes oil around pores on your face to keep the blush color in place. It is also nutrient rich and has nourishing and hydrating properties which is great for girls with dry skin. It is free of Parabens, Sulfates, and Pthalates.

I can attest to the long-lasting skin calming effects of this blush. It never makes my skin oily or causes me to break out. I would like to get a couple more blushes  in a more pinky and a more apricot shade.

All in all, I am extremely impressed with Tarte makeup and highly recommend it to any one who is considering using the products. Most of Tarte’s products are priced well and the one’s that are more expensive are worth the cost. You can also check on http://www.tarte.ca for more Tarte makeup products, as this is where I used the coupon code I found. I also recommend liking Tarte on Facebook.
