Tarte Lipstick Shiraz

Tarte Lipstick Shiraz

This is a really lovely color for fall and a great lipstick overall. The color is a nice brownish red which can be layered more heavily for a darker lip, or very lightly for a nice neutral lip stain. This lipstick is heavily pigmented, so it really lasts. The texture of the lipstick is creamy, with a slightly-greasy feel which gives it some "slip" over the lips, as well as a nice amount of shine (but not super glossy!). At night I did use a gloss to give it a little more "oomph" . The container is smaller than most lipstick tubes, which I really like for carrying around, but the amount of product is the same as most lipsticks, which is great. The lipstick did not dry out my lips, but did come off a little when I ate anything with oil, which is to be expected, even from a long lasting lip product. This is exactly what I've been looking for to get away from my usual neutral beige/brown lip that I did all summer!

  • The best primer ever! This is one of my staples. I use it all the time. It makes makeup stay all day long and it creates the smoothest finish for makeup application. Smashbox photo finish primer.

Ah, sunscreen, so many choices…and so little time. For my face, I am very finicky about the texture, the smell, the staying power and also the convenience level of the packaging (must be travel/gym ready). This new Clarins sunscreen was a relief in a sea of sunscreen I have been testing for the last month or so. I love the little cylinder tube which is super portable. The formula itself is very lightweight and on the thin side, but so concentrated I didn’t need much to cover my face (so it is very long lasting). There is a light fragrance, which dissipated quickly. The lotion glided on my skin without a trace of stickiness, white cast, or oil. The finish was matte. I found that it was light enough to be layered over my favorite serum and under my liquid bronzer or tinted moisturizer that I tend to favor in the summer months. As a matter of fact, this is actually the perfect skin primer before makeup application. The lasting power was fantastic on days I was working, running around outside or actually sunning at the beach. I had no breakouts or irritation from the product and it didn’t run or melt on my skin. It also left my skin soft and moisturized without feeling oily, so on the weekends I would just wear this with a little mascara and lip color and I was good to go! This is a non-chemical sunscreen which many of you will also appreciate. It’s made from 100% minerals. Yes, this is another product that is indeed worth every penny and I will be stockpiling! Note: As an added bonus if you are like me and always around computer screens, Clarins has added protection against electromagnetic waves in this formula.

  • I really need to invest in one of these. Every time I see one online I think about buying one but I haven't yet. But they are quite important to every girls make up cycle.

I usually have good skin with an occasional blemish every now and then. Well, on a Friday morning I woke up to a huge pimple on my cheek (cannot ignore that!) and I had about 2 days before a big family event (tons of pics that were going to be taken), to get rid of it. It was that day I saw the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion I had been asked to review and I hoped that it would work as well as I have heard over the years. I decided to begin my assault that morning a few hours before work, Although the product is meant for over night use because it leaves little pink clay dots on the skin where it is applied. (Not attractive but I can live with it). I made sure to use it as per the instructions (not shaking the bottle, instead putting the q tip directly into the bottom of the bottle and pulling it straight out so that the pink clay lotion surrounds the tip). I applied it to my pimple and went back to bed. I woke up a few hours later to begin getting ready for work and rinsed it off. While it obviously had not dissapeared, it was noticably less red and a tiny bit smaller. So far so good... That evening before bed I used it in the same manner and the next morning it was much smaller and had almost completely dried up, without irritating the rest of the skin around it. That night I repeated the process and the day of the event just used a small dab of concealer and I could not see anything. I would say that if you have signifinant acne, then you need a intensive acne skin care/prescription product, but for those of you who get an occasional pimple, skin irritation and/or white heads this is a fantastic product, (and given a day or two) will clear them up completely. It should be noted that the packaging is glass, so it should be wrapped and sealed in a zip lock bag when you travel to avoid breakage. This product will always be in my skin care collection, no matter what! Since just a tiny bit is needed for a pimple, (and if you have them infrequently), this will easily last a year, also making it a smart skin care investment treatment.

If you are looking for a bold, striking lip that’s not too dramatic or showy then this is the color! The formula itself is very pigmented (no sheerness here) with a soft satiny shine, without shimmer. The texture was smooth, and was very moisturizing for my dry lips. This is a long lasting formula, so the lasting power was fantastic and also worked well in humid weather for me. It is non-scented. This color is a dynamic medium-toned pink that will work well with many skin tones, best up to a Gabrielle Union shade. The packaging, as with all of the Dior products, is exquisite, glamorous and yet still simple. It’s the classic deep blue Dior’s cased with a touch of silver. This is simply a great lipstick that looked gorgeous on me!

It contains great bioactive ingredients that work to restore, rejuvenate and repair skin at a cellular level and will leave skin perfectly clean and soft. I can't use it because my skin isn't dry but I've recommended this to friends who rave about how good it is, and I've tried so many of the John Masters products now that I take their word for it. It's one of the best organic brands out there and their green credentials are impeccable when it comes to not only the formulas, but also their packaging, business operations, impact and contributions towards the environment. Love these guys!

I was skeptical at first, but it has great blendability (mineral powder). The color is a "perfect" shade for bronzer as it has a sort of rosy look to it, but not too much. Resembles a real tan because of this. It has very little shimmer and wonderful texture. Has a cute paragraph on the back referring to Paris Hilton by saying "that's hot", etc. Very cute marketing idea. The package is awesome as well. It's cardboard covered in a leather-like gold snakeskin looking cover with a mini gold chain on the front. It has a mirror inside and a magnet holds it closed. The BEST bronzer I have ever tried. Applies like a dream with buildable color, and is suitable for many skin tones. It makes me FEEL like a hotel heiress, tan and blinging. As Paris would say- "That's Hot!
