Tarte Eyelash Curler Review

I haven’t had too much experience with spring eye lash curlers but the one experience I did have wasn’t a great one. Honestly, I think I was scarred for life after trying out the Sana Excel Spring Curler. Can you say ouch?

I’m not talking about a season. When I mention “spring” I’m talking about the spring action of the curler. Tarte’s curler isn’t a traditional manual curler that you press and hold down. The Tarte Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler has a spring back handle which you press to curl and it slowly springs back when you release.

Holy cow that sounded technical and stuff!

Honestly, I’ve never understood the concept of the”spring” action so don’t ask me to explain it! My brain might explode if I attempt an explanation!

I do admit to having a deep fondness and possible love affair with my Shu curler but I will go so far as to say that I’m digging the Tarte curler.

For $15 USD I’d say this is definately worth peeking at as the price is nice and right.

First of all the packaging of course got me. I love that the handles are a beautiful light lilac shade. What can I say I’m a sucker for stuff that’s purple!

The curler fits very comfortable in my hand and I like the forward design of the handles. Press forward and your lashes curl up beautifully! Very easy to operate and none of the drama of stick your fingers into the handle! Just press the first handle forward until it touches the other and Bob’s your Uncle!

The curler is a nice small size as well for easy storage and travel. It’s quite tiny and compact which I really love! It fits the contour of my eye perfectly and I experienced no pinching which was a relief considering my bad experience with the Sana Curler!

I’m slightly concerned about the size and the generous curve of the curler. Although it fits my eye perfectly well I think this isn’t such a great option for Asian girls (or guys).

My Shu curler has a very generous and straight line (with a slight tilt upward) which I think fits an Asian eye very well and pulls shorter lashes up and out where as the Tarte curler doesn’t have a straight line. It curves upwards and has a smaller size which doesn’t cover a “straighter” eye area if that makes sense.

I really like it. Actually I like it so much I’m going to slap a hearty Muse Approve for purchase on it! However, if you’re of some Asian descent I think checking this out in person at your local Sephora would be a good idea. Take a look at the design and see if you feel it will fit your eye correctly!

Summer Collection 2008: Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink Collection

untitled58

Guess what I got my hands on?

Some of Bobbi Brown’s brand new Summer Collection entitled Bronzed Pink! Excited? I know I am.

SUMBP l

My love affair with Bobbi Brown continues from the Spring into the Summer with this hot new collection!

I know, I know I’ve said I hate bronzers but I couldn’t help but get curious about Bobbi’s Bronzed Pink Collection. Seriously, just think about it, bronze and pink…a contradiction most gorgeous don’t you agree?

Anytime I’ve ventured into the scary world of bronzers I’ve always had the yearning to spice up my bronzing experience with a dash of pink and lucky for me Bobbi thought the same exact thing when she created this collection!

I admit I wasn’t brave enough to venture into actually purchasing the scary bronzing powders I seen with the collection but I did get the best of the lot of items introduced with two of the Metallic Eyeshadows and two of the Tinted Lip Balms and I’ll be testing them out for you shortly!

E4NE lE4A7 l

I’m thinking these shadows and the lip balms are going to rock out really well with the new love of my life, Urban Decay Baked Bronzer.

The promo images are simply divine and the model is glowing with health and such a natural look that I’m dying to dupe!

Sneak Peek of the review to come……………Yummie Bobbi goodies!
