Tarte Bling It On Blush Palette Review!

Hello beautiful people!
I hope your Sunday has been nice and relaxing so far! My house smells amazing right now, because my mom is making a lovely Sunday roast, which I’m pumped to eat!

I’m sure all of you have noticed the Holiday sets are being released (which is honestly getting me very excited for Christmas!) So, last time I was in Sephora I was oo-ing and ahh-ing at all the beautiful sets, but this one from Tarte really caught my eye, so obviously I had to bring it home.

I’ve never really tried Tarte products out before, and while a lot of their kits for holiday are stunning, their “Bling It On” Amazonian Clay blush set ($53) called my name!

This palette has really cute black glitter packaging on the outside, and this gorgeous rose gold to line the blushes; I also like that you get such a large mirror with this baby.
I’ve heard amazing things about the amazonian clay blushes, and they were absolutely right. These five colours wear all day long, they’re not streaky or chalky at all, and the pigmentation is incredible.

You get five shades in the palette, 4 are matte and one has a bit of glitter in it, which is nice for the holiday season, because you really can’t have enough glitter.
I’ve tried all of these, and literally cannot say enough good things, each one adds a healthy and pretty flush to your cheeks. This palette has all the blush shades you could possibly want or need, and they would suit any skin tone. The deeper shades are great for fall winter, and the lighter shades are gorgeous for spring and summer! Not to mention this is great value for money, considering one of these is $34 and the whole palette is $53!

If you can manage to get your hands on this I would 100% recommend picking this up!

Until next time my loves,
xoxo

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation Review

Hello beautiful people!
And a very Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! I hope you’re all stuffed with turkey, mashed potatoes and lots of pie!

A couple of week ago, I picked up the new Maybelline foundation that claims to “transform your skin” with it’s antioxidant enriched formula.
DSCN2140
I don’t think I’ve been using this for long enough to notice a difference in my skin, but I will say that I really love this foundation. I picked up the shade 10 porcelain ivory which is the lightest shade in the range, and it matches me perfectly.
I love that it has a pump, there’s nothing worse than having to pour too much foundation onto a brush or the back of your hand! Drugstore foundations have really stepped on their game with packaging, especially for the prices! This is $12, which I think is great for the quality of the product.
DSCN2142
As far as formula goes, this foundation is really nice. It’s got a demi-matte finish, which is great for autumn/winter time, and it lasts all day long! I wore this for 13 hours and it was still looking good at the end of the night. Obviously after a day that long there was some moving around, and it was pretty much wiped off of my chin, but I give this a big thumbs up for longevity.
DSCN2143
The consistency is quite thick, so one pump is really all you need for your face. It’s definitely a medium to full coverage formulation that blends really beautifully onto the skin without clinging to dry spots or sitting awkwardly in my pores.
Make up also layers seamlessly onto this, no bunching or streaking at all!
Again, I don’t think I’ve been wearing this long enough to notice any difference in my complexion, but it does make my skin look naturally healthy and matte when I wear it. I’ll keep you guys posted on whether or not it “transforms” my skin in the next few weeks.
I would definitely recommend giving this a try if you’re looking for a new drug-store foundation!

That’s it for now my loves, leave me a comment letting me know how your weekend was!
Until next time,
xoxo
