The Tarte Summer 2014 Collection, Golden Days and Sultry Nights, has the colors of summer that I just love. Warm golds and bronzes, pretty pinks and corals. It’s gorgeous! These are colors that call to me for summer; nothing too bold, but enough of a pop to accentuate golden skin.
Highlights of the Tarte Summer 2014 Collection include:
The Golden Days & Sultry Nights Amazonian Clay Collector’s Shadow Palette, which includes 5 eyeshadow shades: Toes in the Sand (matte ivory), Espadrilles (matte taupe), Caipirnha Cocktails (gold), Oceanview (jade), Tropical Sunset (bronze) $36
Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Captivating $26
Lights, Camera, Splashes™ 4-in-1 Waterproof Mascara $19
LipSurgence™ Lip Gloss (9 shades) $19
LipSurgence™ Lip Gloss in park ave princess™ $19
I previewed a variety of products from this collection, including the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Captivating and it’s amazing. I truly did get all day/12 hour wear. The color is that universally flattering shade of peachy-pink that everyone needs in their makeup bag. And the finish is excellent; it doesn’t make skin look dry or cakey.
I also tried the new LipSurgence™ Lip Glosses, including park ave princess™, which is my favorite shade. The formula has antioxidants, including Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil to hydrate and lock in moisture, while being pigmented enough to give good color payoff. The shape of the applicator gives a perfect result every time. And LipSurgence is not sticky, which I love.
A waterproof mascara is essential for summer and I’m pleased to recommend Lights, Camera, Splashes™ 4-in-1 Waterproof Mascara. What I like is that you get it all with this mascara–volumizing, lengthening, curling and conditioning plus a waterproof formula that is sweat and super water-resistant. I also like the brush, which is easy to use and not too big. Because of the formula, I would recommend an oil-based makeup remover; this mascara stays put until you take it off.
In addition to the color products, this collection also includes various bronzing products, eye makeup remover wipes (need to try these on my next Sephora run) and the Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow Powder.
