Tarte is one of my fave makeup brands - the products seem to just work. I've raved endlessly about their Lights Camera Lashes Mascara (see full review here) so I was dubious that their Gifted Mascara (QVC £21) could match up. Again, this mascara gives the ultimate combination of volume and length to dress your lashes, I love. The Amazonian clay it contains also helps to hydrate and nourish your lashes, keeping them in great condition, so they retain their natural length and fullness too. Tarte Gifted Mascara
Brows are such an important part of most women's makeup routines now and long gone the days of just a simple eye brow pencil! Tarte's Brow Architect ($23 US - I can't currently see it available in the UK, but you may find on eBay) contains brow comb to style, a slanted pencil to define and a pre loaded sponge applicator to highlight under your brow too. Perfect to keep in your makeup bag - rather than a bulkier brow pallet. Amelia Liana is also a massive fan of this product!
I love Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush (£25 with brush QVC) so much, I was looking forward to trying out Tarte's Cheek Stains ($30 Semaphore which does ship to the UK). Although the sticks look intense in colour, after you gave applied and blended the colour does go right down, so you needn't be scared! I am more of a powder blush than cream blush fun generally, so I wasn't expecting to be bold over which I'm not, but if you like cream blushes, which do give any help denier and youthful look than powders, worth giving a whirl.
Trying the Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Angelic Nude (QVC £28 as part of the Amazonian Lip Butter Trio), reminded me of how much I love these lipsticks! The mint addition makes them feel super fresh and they are really moisturising too.
If you are more of a lipgloss girl, the none sticky Lipsurgence glosses (trio of glosses QVC £26.50) will be right up your street. The non sticky formula gives a subtle shine combined with either a shimmery or matte shade.
