I’ve always been a huge fan of the Tarte beauty line, and recently I’ve discovered some new life changing products that are just so good, I had to share them with you! Ok, so maybe life changing is a bit dramatic, but you get the point..they’re fabulous.
Let me start by giving you a little background on the line itself. <<from the Tarte site>> Tarte is a leader in healthy, eco-chic beauty, offering cruelty-free cosmetics infused with skinvigorating™ ingredients like superfruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally-derived ingredients. But it’s not just about what’s in our powerful formulas; it’s what’s not in them that really sets us apart! All of our products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten, just to name a few.
Basically, this rockstar line is good for your skin and truly performs, which is why after discovering this line, I quickly became obsessed. And, on top of it, their pretty packaging is to die for!
Here’s what’s in my bag from my latest beauty pick-up..
So, anyone else a huge fan of bronzer?? I swear I’ve spent more money on bronzer than anything else in my life. (again, that might be a bit dramatic..but, I could do this all day..) I’ve long searched for that right balance of sun-kissed glow and light shimmer, as to not be a sparkly pumpkin or anywhere on the orange spectrum. That is where Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in the Park Ave Princess shade comes in. Ahhhhh…perfection. It gives me the exact just-been-kissed-by-the-sun look I’m going for. Have I just been to the beach? Have I been riding my bike to the farmer’s market? No one knows…but, I’ve got the glow 😉
What’s even better is that the bronzer is waterproof, which is perfect for warm weather, summer, vacation, or intense sweating. And, let me tell you, being a prego at the beach in 100+ degree weather, you are intensely sweating, and that bronzer doesn’t budge. *cue happy dance!*
I also absolutely love setting sprays. I’ve used everything from the ELF setting spray to Urban Decay’s all nighter spray, but the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea 4-in-1 Setting Mist is truly unlike the rest. Not only does it lock in your makeup and keep it from moving, melting, fading, etc., but, it is formulated with vitamins and minerals that are great for your skin, and truly hydrate the face. Bonus, it smells incredible. Here’s what Tarte has to say about their spray <<from the Tarte site>>A multipurpose setting spray that primes, sets, hydrates, & refreshes skin while locking down makeup for 12 hours & smoothing the look of fine lines & wrinkles.
Seriously, this stuff is amazing-I call it my mermaid spray. I spray it on my face after I complete my beauty routine, and then throughout the day when I need a refresher. Somehow, it awakens the skin and “wakes up” tired makeup, to make it look fresh again. I absolutely love it and cannot get enough! I promise, your life, and beauty regimen, will forever be changed in the best way possible. And, I’m not being dramatic, AT ALL 😉
So, I may be old school, but I don’t care. I love lipstick. I love it WAY more than gloss. I think it makes the lips look fuller, softer, and more plump, and the application is so much smoother. Tarte’s lipstick is so creamy smooth, it makes your lips feel so silky and it goes on like butter. I recently discovered this new Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick in the shade Salt Lyfe, and it has quickly become my go-to. I prefer a more natural lip, and this mauve gray accents my natural pinky lip, creating a perfect nude-pink pout.
Anyone else love a good illuminator?? Tarte comes in with the Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter in the shade stunner for the win. This light-reflecting liquid highlighter illuminates the skin, giving you the perfect, dewy glow. I also love how light bounces off the highlight, casting pretty light on your face in pictures or outside in the sunlight. It creates this perfectly lit-from-within effect on the skin, which is absolutely beautiful. You can’t go wrong with this opal/pearlized shade-perfect for every skin tone.
For my birthday, I was pretty stoked when the gift option available included a Tarte cheek and lip combo. Of course, I chose that set, and I’m in love with them. I only got a small, travel size, but I’m already planning on picking these up, once I run out. The Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in the shade Paaarty is the perfect nude, for a soft look. And, it truly lasts as long as it says it does. The Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in the shade Birthday Suit is a full coverage, liquid lipstick, with a matte finish, to create a natural pout. I love this one, because it’s super smooth and doesn’t dry out your lips, like a lot of matte lipsticks do.
I absolutely love so many of their products, and I could rave about them all day, but you gotta just take my word for it, and try them for yourself. You will not be disappointed with the quality of the products, the effect of how well they perform, and the gorgeous packaging that you get to hold in your hand while applying. Because, doesn’t everyone love a bag full of pretty makeup to get you excited for your beauty routine? 🙂

Get glowing, girls!
