Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder Review & Swatches
You likely already have Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder in your stash but I know you’re going to want the Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder anyway just for the packaging.
Who can resist such cute vintage-y packaging like this? Give your old pot to a friend and embrace this newly packaged version!
Tarte has teamed up with the Aqualillies, America’s most glamorous synchronized swimming group, to create their Summer 2013 Collection. These powerful, healthy, real women are the perfect (and first) muses for Tarte’s Summer launch!
The Summer Collection including the newly packaged Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder ($29) features a pale mint green lid with coral accents. The pot quite reminds me of a vintage 60’s powder jar, like something you’d find on Mad Men. The inner sifter does pop off so you can enjoy the packaging well after the contents are gone by simply refilling it! It also features a single hole to sift powder out which I love as this is a good way to get powder out without making too much of a mess. Typically sifters contain several holes and dispense too much product. This single hole is an excellent way to live the “more is less” philosophy when it comes to setting powders like this!
I’ve reviewed Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder in a past post or two however, here’s a re-brief…
This is a silky perfecting powder that can be buffed onto skin after foundation or BB Cream application. It blurs the appearances of pores, fine lines, and imperfections while setting makeup. I realize the white shade can be intimidating to some but no worries it does not appear chalky on skin and has a transparent finish that perfect as it absorbs excess oil.
Tarte says it is powered by Amazonian Clay which acts as a skin balance by hydrating all skin types and mattifying while keeping skin looking flawless.
I also like using it to set my concealer by simply swirling a blending brush in it and swiping under my eyes. It gives a brightening appearance and sets my concealer for all day wear.
As Summer approaches this is the perfect way to keep your makeup fresh, long wearing, and beautiful!
The cute packaging is the cherry on top of this cake.
It’s available now at tartecosmetics.com and launches shortly at major retailers.
Is it on your Summer wish list?
