Tarte Week – Faves & FAILS

Today were wrapping up Tarte week with a few of the smaller items from the brand. Before we continue, have you entered my GIVEAWAY yet? You could get your hands on a Limited Edition Tarte Rainforest of the Sea palette and did I mention it’s INTERNATIONAL! If you’d like to read my other Tarte posts for this week, I did a review of the Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette and Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette which are my favourites from Tarte, as well as a review of the gorgeous Tartelette in Bloom Palette. My Wishlist Wednesday post featured the new Swamp…

Tarte Week – Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow P...

If there was anything else I wanted from Tarte in the last couple of months, it’s been this baby. Images strewn across Instagram and social media of the Tartelette in Bloom palette since last November made my heart ache each time I saw it. It’s probably one of the most gorgeous palettes I have ever seen. The front cover is a kaleidoscope of pink and purple watercolour blossoms with bold, gold writing across the front. The rim and underside, the same gorgeous gold and sturdy packaging that I’ve come to love. A generous mirror on the inside is great even…

Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte Swamp Queen Palet...

In keeping up with this week’s Tarte theme, I stalked the internet like a panther looking for something else from Tarte that I really, really, really wanted to try. I’ve seen their recent launch of Tartiest Lip Paints, Lash Paint Mascara and Matte Lip Tints to name a few, but nothing screamed ‘Take me home and make me yours forever’. That is, until the recent launch of the Tarte Swamp Queen Eye and Cheek Palette. A collaboration between Tarte and one of my favourite YouTubers, Bunny/Grav3yardgirl, brings us a limited edition full face palette with shades chosen by Bunny herself.…

Tarte Week – Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette

Today I’ll be sharing with you another Tarte item in my collection that I’ve been reaching for quite often. The Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette is meant to be a ‘highlighting trio palette with three universal shades for strobing and perfecting‘. I have mixed feelings about these shades so let’s get on to the nitty gritty, shall we? Firstly the packaging is breathtaking. It’s probably the most ‘aquatic’ looking one in the entire Rainforest of the Sea collection. Shades of blue waves envelop the outer lid with the same luxurious gold rim and underside as the Tarte Rainforest of the…

Tarte Week – Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow...

Hi bellas, Hope you had an awesome weekend! Today I’m back with an awesome palette review and giveaway. Sorry that this has been delayed for so long. It was supposed to go up two weeks ago but our electricity box burnt out and we had intermittent power cuts, I just didn’t have the uptime to prepare for this week. Along with that I’ve been a bit off sorts and have had a muscle spasm in my right shoulder since last Thursday. I finally managed to take care of that with an extra long massage from one of my favourite little places…
