Tarte Cosmetics Makeup and Skin Care Haul

As you may know (or probably should know by now) I might have a slight obsession with Tarte Cosmetics....

 

Might...

 

Just kidding, I have a HUGE obsession with Tarte Cosmetics and they're products just seem to be getting better and better! They recently had a sale on their website (but let's be honest, they always have some kind of amazing sale) and I just had to take advantage of it!

 

Check out a few (many) of the products I picked up from their online store :)

 

Beauty

 

Shape tape

 

I mean come on... it's shape tape. It speaks for itself.

 

the sculptor slenderizing stick

 

Most natural contouring stick that gives you a flawless skin finish that's easy and creamy to blend. See why I love this more in my June Favorites blog.

 

Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara

 

So far this mascara is ok... but it'll be difficult to keep me away from my Maybelline big shot but I'll give it a couple more chances. It does give me some pretty good volume with a couple layers. 

 

Amazonian clay 12 hours blush in fiesty (rose)

 

It's a bit difficult to get out of the pan (which I've found with most of the amazonian clay products), but along with all the other amazonian clay products, once it does it looks super natural and blends pretty easy. This blush is not too pigmented, which is perfect because I hate pigmented blushes. There's nothing worse than picking up some pink and never being able to blend it off your cheeks.

 

color splash hydrating lipstick in island life (rosy mauve)

 

...not a fan. Just not a fan. It is creamy and hydrated, but I prefer lipsticks that are kiss proof and this color just doesn't work for me.

 

Skin Care

 

Rainforest of the Sea Deep dive cleansing gel

 

I have bought this a grand total of FOUR times now... Yes, 4! It just feels so good on the skin, cleanses everything and is perfect when mixed with an exfoliant. Not really much more good I can say about it. 

 

Rainforest of the Sea marine boosting mist

 

I don't need this during the day (because oily skin), so I use this before applying moisturizer for extra hydration and it works. Smells pretty good too!

 

Maracuja Oil

 

Ride or die product. No further explanation for this!

 

Pack your bags 911 Under eye rescue patches

 

This is my first time using these patches and they feel good! I don't have problems with under eye bags but it's the perfect refresher after a long hot day in Vegas.

 

Is it helping reduce puffiness and brighten? I have no idea. But, will I rebuy them?

 

Absolutely.

3 Essential Summer Skin Care Products

We all know summer is nearly the most important season to pay extra attention to skin care, so since it's finally here... why not load up on some good products?

Here are my top 3 essential skin care products for the summer. *pics at the end!

 

**to be fair, I want to give you a description of what my skin is like so you can judge each product based on your needs

 

MY SKIN PROFILE

Combination

Oily on cheeks and T-zone

Dry around smile lines

Mild texture around cheek bone area

Typically worsens around that time of the month

Enlarged pores around nose and fullest part of cheeks

Mild acne

2 or 3 bad pimples every now and then, never more than that

Tans easy, never been burnt

Like... I'm outside for 10 minutes and I turn darker than night

Mild acne scarring

Since I don't get much acne, I don't have many scars CURRENTLY, but have battled them in the past

 

So now that my skin profile is out of the way, let's get into my essential products!

 

Tarte Maracuja Oil

Add this to your skin routine for deep hydration around extra dry skin. This oil is not greasy or heavy and is the perfect face oil to either hydrate your skin overnight or wear under makeup for extra glowy skin.

 

This worked SO perfect for me when I had dry skin in the brutal winter, so applying this concept to dry skin in the summer just seems right!

 

Benefit Triple Performing Face Moisturizer

 

This by far is my favorite face moisturizer for the summer solely because of the SPF 15 included in the formula! I wear this on the days I know I'm going to be outside a little bit more or my skin is going through a rough patch. This can also double as a primer for your makeup if you know you're not going to be taking pictures (because yes, it has a white texture because of the SPF and WILL flashback!)

 

 

Fresh rose face mask

 

Of COURSE this is perfect for deep hydration (are you sensing a theme?) but this feels soooo soothing on the skin, especially after a long day outside in the sun and heat. It's super cooling, smells amazing and can calm any redness or hot spots on your face. This is great as a morning awakening mask as well.
