Make Up For Ever Flash Palette Loveliness...

Bonjour Mon Amies! I thought since I know I had lusted after this forever, until recently ( on my Birthday) I actually got it. let me say first off... I love Make Up For Ever, and I want everything they carry in their range basically. So it was fate, in a matter of time I would get this. I am glad I did! The colors in here are really nicely pigmented, and creamy.. like really creamy. When I got this, I assumed from all of the Blog stalking, that it would be a slightly thicker consistency.. but no, this goes on like bud-da! Their are only I think Three colors that you cannot put on your eyes, because they have a red dye/ pigment in them which is found to aggravate the eyes, and their are three shades you cannot put on your mouth. The Red, Coral, and Pink are the ones not allowed on the eyes, and both of the metallic colors are not lip safe along with the blue.
These will crease if you don't have a base under this, or some sort of primer. It is quite pricey but if you are a Makeup Artist or someone who likes to do all sorts if creative looks, this is well worth it!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Swatches & Review!

Hello Lovelies! Sorry I haven't updated this in a while, spring break was last week and I really didn't feel like doing much of anything. This week was back to the old grind, and today was Saturday so I thought I should put up a new post. Because of all of the bloggers and YouTubers in the beauty world were raving about these blushes, I thought I would give them  go. I went to sephora and fell in Love! These are everything and more of what you hear and read about. The pigment is fantastic, and so is the saying power. The swatches that you see below I kept on my arm all night, slept with them on my arm.. and when I woke up they weren't as bright but still, they stayed on all night! That's pretty nice, considering that I am a wild sleeper!
So supposedly the founder of Tarte Cosmetics went on a trip to the amazon, and found at the bottom of the Amazon river a "groundbreaking" new clay that is supposed to make dry skin more moisturized and oily skin less oily. Interesting, I think... do I think that it lives up to it's claim? Well, I have fairly normal skin.. (not to oily, and not to dry.. though more dry) so I am not the best judge for saying if this works or not. I found that it doesn't break me out, I tested it for two weeks and nothing. I really like these and would recommend them!
