Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot Review, Swatches, Photos

Unbeknownst to me, Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot have been hiding on QVC for a while now. Dude, how did I not know about these?

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot 34

I’m off my game I guess.

Recently, a few new shades were introduced for Summer and that’s how I learned about these little guys. Each one comes with it’s own brush and is $23.

The formula is made with micronized Amazonian clay which intensifies color pigments all whole working to nourish the skin and reduce surface oil. Sounded like an idea solution for oily skin if it helps reduce surface oil eh? It’s also free from parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, and other nasties! The shadows promise to create a layer of product that basically wears well through sweat and tears without creasing for hours of wear time.

Let’s see how they perform!

Stila Striking in South Beach

Stila Striking in South Beach

The next Stila Beach Girl Palette is available!

Stila Striking in South Beach is all about Zoe and her trip to the beach! This palette concentrates on blues so I’m not sure if I’ll love it but my obsessive compulsive beauty disease demands I buy it so I have a complete set of the Beach Girl Palettes!

The palette is $14 and includes:

Four Eye Shadows:

  • Ocean Drive
  • Wave
  • Nightlife
  • Cabana

Cheek Color:

  • Art Deco

Highlighter/Bronzer:

  • SoBe

The palette also features a mirror and a face chart. The palettes are $4 more this year compared to last year’s Travel Girl Palettes at $10 but you are getting more product here plus the extra packaging details (mirror and face chart). So far, my experience with the new palettes has been a yay!

If you missed my reviews you can catch up with Stila Haute in the Hamptons and Stila Stunning in Sayulita.

What do you think of Stila Striking in South Beach?

Will you be hauling it?

Do sahre!

Philosophy Baby Collection: Philosophy Cleansing Hair-To-Toe Baby Wash Philosophy Baby Nurturing Lotion Philosophy Baby Comforting Diaper Cream

Philosophy Baby Collection 0402

I’ve been a virtual auntie to baby Lucy, born to my dear reader Dina a few months ago! Eep and I still haven’t seen her yet in person! Promise D, we meet up for din and shopping real soon or maybe we should just wait a few years for Lucy to develop into a beauty junkie like us!? Naaa knowing you she is already at that point of her life already! Gotta start ‘em young!

Needless to say, new and old mum’s are as passionate about good beauty as the rest of us plus I imagine those with daughters are ever so eager to introduce them to the dark side aka the beauty junkie lifestyle.

Yup the moral of the story is start ‘em young and why not start them with a best loved brand like Philosophy?

Philosophy Baby is a selection of natural bath and body goodies for newly born babes and their mum’s to enjoy!
