Tarte Amazonian Clay Shimmering Blush Glisten, Frisky, Buff, Adored Spring 2012 Review, Swatches, Photos

Tarte Amazonian Clay Long Wear Blush Glisten Frisky Buff Adored Spring 2012 2

I was hoping and wishing and crossing my little fingers and toes that Tarte would do more shimmer in their Amazonian Clay Blush for Spring.


Wish granted.

Tarte introduced a shimmery version of the blush in a QVC Special Value Set called Glisten. Glisten was even better than NARS Orgasm for me. It’s this delightful shade of golden peachy pink that lights up my face like nothing else. Gorgeous! Truly a keeper and HG (holy grail) blush if ever there was one.

Needless to say this blush got me on the idea that Tarte seriously needed to introduce more shimmer into the Amazonian Clay Blush because the entire catalog of shades are matte.

For Spring 2012, you can indulge in four, brand new shades including Glisten of Amazonian Clay Blush with a delightfully sparkly finish.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Review

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water 1

I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.

Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.



Too Faced Natural Kiss Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Too Faced Natural Kiss Palette 1

I don’t like lip palettes.

Not only are they gross but, I dunno, I just like applying my lipstick and gloss from a tube with an applicator, etc…I’m a traditionalist. Lip palettes get mighty messy plus they are a breeding ground for bacteria.

Bobbi Brown has somewhat changed my mind on lip palettes, almost, kinda, sorta….

But I admit I indulged in the new Too Faced Natural Kiss Neutral Lip Color Collection. I just had to have it. It went so well with their box eyeshadow set plus the shades looked delightful along side my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Gasp! Is it sacrilegious to wear Urban Decay on my eyes and Too Faced on my lips? I always think of them as complete rivals, kinda celebrity smack down style thing going on between the two brands…in this corner we have Urban Decay in this corner we have Too Faced Cosmetics…BATTLE ON!
