I love Tarte products, and use their Amazonian Clay blush every day, but I have to say that their new liquid liner is a fail. It applies nicely and has a nice rich colour, but not even a day into wear, it was smudged all over my eyelid making me look messy!  I can’t comment […]

Summer Must-Have: Tarte Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne

I can’t live without a good highlighting and shimmering powder, especially for the summer. The one I’m using these days, all over myself is Tarte’s Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne.  The powder is extremely lightweight, very pigmented (shimmery), and though it’s pressed, it works like a loose powder because it’s so powdery. I […]

Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster Review

Tarte’s LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster is a shimmery version of their lip stain and was launched early this spring.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Review

For a natural day time look, the best way to go is to use as little shimmer as possible especially on the cheeks. If you have oily skin, you especially want something matte so that it absorbs oil instead of adding to it. A good matte blush in a couple of colours is always in […]

20 Best products of 2010

I’m late on posting the best products of 2010, and this year I decided that I would just list my 20 best products instead of a different best for every category.

Matte Makers

I have combination skin on a good day – and on a bad day my skin is most definitely oily and a layer of products is needed to absorb oil.  Add to that the fact that my summer adventures include hiking, splashing in the water, and generally long days which can mean melting makeup.  I […]

Tarte ReCreate Silicone Free Primer Review

The weather is hotter, and that means that my skin is oilier. I need to take care that my makeup lasts all day, and so I’ve taken to adding a primer to my routine. Unlike most folk, I don’t use a primer under my foundation. Because I already apply a layer of sunblock under my […]

Product Recommendations

I wanted to share the products that I recommended to my friends at the spa party I held recently. I have to say that I was surprised that some of my friends just weren’t aware of all the great brands available at their local Sephora, like Ojon, Urban Decay, and Canada’s own Cargo! So many […]
