Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

Tarte is a brand that I think is best known for their blushes. Known to be longwearing (they promise 12 hours of wear time), these blushes pop up in many beauty favorites and make up collections. A while ago, I decided to buy my first Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Achiote. Here’s what I think.  Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush swatch review Achiote

The Balm Hot Mama

The Balm Hot Mama

So you want to be a Hot Mama? You have to hand it to make up brand The Balm: there product names are about as witty as it gets. Pair that off with some retro looking packaging and you have a combination that sells. I had tried a few of their products before, but not that many. So when I spotted this classic blush when I was in Italy, I decided to snatch it up.

ELF Face Palettes: highlight, contour & blush

ELF Face Palettes: highlight, contour & blush

ELF is such an affordable make up brand and it had been yonks since I had tried some of their products. Since the European website is about a year behind on what is available in The States, this is something that easily happens. I heard so many people rave about some of their newer releases and I couldn’t get my hands on them. Then when I randomly checked the ELF website one day, I found all the bits I was curious after and bought some. The item that intrigued me the most? The face palettes. These are my thoughts.

Catrice Light & Shadow Contouring Blush

Catrice Light & Shadow Contouring Blush

Peachy blush tones for spring are some of my favorites. Where I wear little to no peach blushes in the winter time and opt for dusty pinks instead, I bust out the peach blush in full throttle every year come spring time. Whether I opt for Milani Luminoso, MAC’s Fresh Honey, or my Kiko Apricot blush, peach is where it is at. When I spotted Catrice doing a stunning peach shade too, I picked it up and tried it out.

Becca Champagne Splits | Champagne Pop & Flower Child

Becca Champagne Splits | Champagne Pop & Flower Child

I was looking to try more Becca products. After trying their Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, I was intrigued enough to finally bite the bullet and try some more. However, buying the full sized version seemed a bit much. These highlighters are intense and I have plenty of make up so I knew I wouldn’t use it up. That’s why, when Becca launched their Champagne Splits collection for the same price as a full sized product, I bought some. Today I’m reviewing Champagne Pop highlighter and Flower Child blush.

Essence Blush Play

Essence Blush Play

The new Essence products were already featured in a first impressions video a few weeks ago, but those were just first impressions. Usually when I try products for a while longer I will truly be able to tell how I feel about a product. Also, there is only so much make up you can try on in one go and that meant that I wasn’t able to show all of the products on my face in that video. Which is why I am bringing you a full review of the new Essence Blush Play Sculpting Blush Palette today.
