Tarte is totally slaying me this Fall season with the introduction of not one but two palettes. Oh you do so know I can’t say nay to a Tarte Palette! Tarte Femme Fatale Eye Palette and Tarte Naturale Eye Palette should be winging their way into your Fall wish list for a dramatic or nude eye look!
The two best parts about the Tarte Femme Fatale Eye Palette is the fact that’s it refillable (yup you heard me right) and it comes with quickie instructions for creating two looks. Interestingly enough the palette is made up of ten separate shades and gives instructions for using five shades of shadow per a look. Oh god, let me tell you, I made such a fantastical mess this morning attempting to pull off one of the two looks. I swear present me with five shadows and it’s like brain surgery…most I ever used was three…four is pressing it and five is living dangerously. Ahhh! Brain overload….BOOM! Sadly, I don’t have looks to share today but I’m attempting them again shortly and will post when I’ve gotten the knack of it.
The palette is made up of ten shades as mentioned above. You’ll get (top row) a sheer pink blush, light gold, violet, smoky blue, and a shimmering onyx. On the bottom row you’ll get a shimmering light apricot gold, copper, bronze gold, green, and a reddish brown. Aside from the base shadows of pink and apricot (used as a color wash on the eye and prepping the eye area for the deeper shades) all the colors are deeply pigmented and pretty much have a shimmery finish. The two last shadows on the bottom and top row are the ones that are tricky for me as they are almost matte in texture so I had a time of it trying to blend correctly plus they are generally dark and difficult to work with for me. I really need practice with these guys.
Overall, Tarte has a nice Fall Collection to add to your wish list. The palettes are a prime piece for me as I’m all about eye shadow but they have also released a new concealer and an eyeshadow primer as well which could become quick favorites for many.
The two palettes are worthy of a check out especially if you love Tarte and just adore color in general. The shadows are all a good healthy size so it’s quite a bang for your buck as you should know if you’ve indulged in some of Tarte’s incredible Holiday offerings.

On occasion I run into mascaras that clump my lashes together in a gluey mess. Indeed, I’m sure you know the culprits guilty of this unseemly sin! I truly hate clumpy, gross looking lashes and the worst part is when you have a full eye look on and it seems almost impossible to “declump” the lashes with a mascara comb. Sigh. The trials and tribulations of mascara.
Here in lays the solution to all your woes or so Tarte tells us! Tarte Rejuvelash is supposed to help me rid myself of the nightmare of clumps.
Click it to find out!
Tarte Rejuvelash is one of those things that makes you scratch your head and go, “hmmm do I really need to spend $16 on a declumping medium?” Doesn’t that sounds fancy? Declumping medium. Whoa. I think it’s worthy of my beauty arsenal actually as it’s saved my lashes and eye looks numerous times since purchasing it.
What is it?
It’s a mini, clear formula in a tube that looks like a mini mascara which contains all sorts of important bits that Tarte tells us about but frankly it’s simply an interesting little tool to have stashed away for days that clumps come out to play.
You’ve just complete an incredible smoky eye and you’re ready to finish it off with a quick curl of your lashes and a ton of mascara to make all that dramatic eye shadow pop. You curl and begin applying mascara…gasp! It clumps up your lashes and you’re left looking like you have a uni-lash (one single lash instead of several). Whip out Tarte Rejuvelash and slowly comb it through that uni lash to separate your lashes and clean up the mess your mascara made.
I find this works better than a simple lash comb because it’s a wet application. The applicator is slightly dampened with all that important formula I was telling you about above plus the applicator is a complicated little creation that allows you to glide through lashes and separate them precisely. Now a lash comb takes a fair bit of work and sometimes makes a bigger mess than the one you’re already sporting however Rejuvelash seems to work considerably better because of the interesting, emollient formula and cool brush.
I dunno if $16 is something you’d want to splurge on but I find that Tarte Rejuvelash is a good one to keep around for cleaning up possible mascara messes when they crop up!
So here’s a few items that are making a starring appearance inside my beach bag this Summer!
Everyone wants beach hair, everyone. Tousled, windblown locks that are soft, seductive, and sexy. Indeed, beach hair is where it’s at! A great item to toss in your beach bag for a full head of alluring hair would be Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist, smells just like tropics plus I just really dig on the name.
