While, this blog is mainly a fashion and lifestyle blog, I thought I might throw some beauty at you every now again. You know, to mix things up a little. I am by no means a beauty guru. Fashion is definitely where it is at for me. But, I still thought it might be fun to talk about some of my beauty purchases every now and again, because, why not!
Here is what I recently picked up:
TonyMoly Sheet Masks/Tarteist Pro Palette/Chapstick Total Hydration 3in1/Mario Badescu/No7 Radiant Glow Concealer
I was drawn to this Tarte palette because of the color selection. It is unlike any palette I have ever seen. I am a fan of the variety this palette offers. Also, I love that it’s mostly matte shades. The pigmentation of this palette is good. However, the shadows do kick up quite a bit of powder. Tarte makes their shadows with Amazonian Clay and other natural ingredients, so maybe that is why they are more powdery? Either way that doesn’t bother me too much because the shadows blend nicely. The shimmer shades on the side of the palette are not as pigmented as I would like them to be. Although, the girl at Ulta told me that they are meant to layer over top of the matte shades. I am assuming that Tarte wanted them to be slightly more sheer so that they didn’t disrupt the matte shades when you layer them. Still, it is something to take into consideration when buying this palette, because this baby is not cheap! Overall, I am happy with it, its different and I can get a variety of looks from it.
My lips have been super dry due to winter weather and this Chap Stick is the only thing that has been working for them. It smells great and works great, other than that I don’t know what to say… since it’s just a chap stick and all. This Mario Badescu facial spray is LOVELY. It smells divine and feels so nice and refreshing on the skin. I use it as a makeup setting spray, I spray it on my face before bed, or I just use it whenever my skin feels parched. I dig it. Now, on to the No7 Concealer. This concealer is everything, it’s brightening, it’s glowy, it’s not heavy or cakey. Go get it.
Lastly, these Tony Moly sheet masks! I really like these. I haven’t tried either one of these ones yet but I have tried a red wine one. They are calming and cooling, and once you take them off your skin instantly looks more plump and radiant. You have to leave them on for approximately 30 minutes, which is kind of a long time, but worth it if you ask me.
Thanks for reading! xoxo
