In the midst of a world full of sponsored blogs, I thought I’d bring you yet another one of my opinion (non-sponsored) posts. I’m not against sponsored posts, I do it from time to time, but I always feel like I should let you know what I’m loving.
As I have been going through my makeup stash, I’ve noticed a trend. I apparently love Tarte cosmetics. More specifically, their palettes.
I have three. That’s saying a lot, because I use these three all the time. I notice several things about them that seems to be brand consistent:
- They are quality products. They don’t fade throughout the day, and they are highly pigmented- yet blend well.
- They have an array of colors- all of which I use. No random hot pink or emerald green.
- They’re packaged beautifully and are quite sturdy.
- Universal colors. They are flattering on almost anyone unless you have dark skin. (In that case, I always love darker or brighter blushes because dark skin can totally pull that off!)
I apparently can’t get enough of them. Let it also be noted that I can’t get enough of their bronzer as well. I’ve tried others (maaaaaaaany others) and I keep coming back to this.
The only bad thing is that they don’t keep one in stock for more than 6 months (well, that I’ve found) when it comes to the blush/eyeshadow combination palettes. That’s not always a negative, because that means they’ll bring something else out soon. Regardless, if you love something, once it’s gone, it’s gone.
I’m all about showing variety, so the past 3 days I’ve posted pictures from the Tartelette in Bloom palette using different shades on my Instagram:
If you haven’t considered Tarte, I would suggest heading over to Sephora or Ulta and checking them out. The just launched this new set of palettes- one that is more natural and one a bit edgier with darker colors.
Even if I don’t use the blush (like on days I’m rocking the Maskcara palette) I STILL gravitate towards these for eyeshadow. Yes, I have a million eye shadows, but I always gravitate to my Tarte!
Beauty Tip: If you find your eyeshadow fades or smudges throughout the day (usually oily eyelids- I have this problem) I would suggest an eyelid primer. e.l.f.. cosmetics has a great one for $2, and Urban Decay has a fantastic one priced a bit higher.
As I previously mentioned, Tarte hasn’t sponsored this, nor have I received any of this for free. I just wanted to share something that I’ve been using consistently for almost a year now. (I’ve been using their blushes for like 4 years, haha!)
I hope you find something you love! Do you have a Tarte favorite?
