About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Must Have Make-Up Monday: Tarte's Miracle of Maracuja

Is it wrong that whenever I hear the word 'miracle' in reference to a make-up or skincare product, my ears perk up? Let's face it, we all could use more miracles in our lives- especially in the morning when getting ready! Behold the new buzz worthy ingredient & Tarte's new Golden Child, Maracuja Oil. In my head I'm hearing a snarky teen voice announcing, '"Argan Oil is so last year."
Maracuja Oil (a bottle of the multi-purpose pure oil is included in the kit) comes from the Maracuja fruit. The oil is high in Vitamin C & EFAs and perfect for radiant skin. The Miracle of Maracuja Kit, which launches on QVC exclusively March 16th, makes me giddy. Why? Because, well everything is so pretty. I can often take joy in just the packaging of make-up. I knew I was keeping this collection, whether or not I even used the products- just because it's that lovely. It's also a great value with 8 full size pieces coming in at $59.96.
Though the shades look rather intense in the Evoke the Smoke compact, they're very wearable.
I did a sheer wash of the soft pink shade all over, then used the silver in the crease. The purple shadow in the quad was gorgeous swiped on as an eyeliner- used dry it still delivered a pop of pigment. Also included are Tarte's new Cashmere Waterproof Gliding Liner in Black Magic & Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara to complete your peepers.
The Airblush Maracuja Bouncy Blush in Amused looked a little intimidating when I first opened the compact, but when used with the Airbrush Finish Bamboo Blush Brush gives the perfect flush. I always steers clients to dual fiber brushes like this for bronzer & blush, because it is goof proof. It prevents picking up too much color & looking like a clown. Rather you can build the shade to your liking & oh did I mention it feels like heaven on your skin?
The Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss in Peaceful is the perfect soft, sheer color to balance out the eye shades. Things to know? This kit has shades that are cool toned, if you gravitate towards warm shades- this compilation isn't for you. Also though the concealer is for all skin types, I would say it's probably more for normal to dry skin types. I say get a kit for yourself, as well as one for your mom for Mother's Day. These flowers beat a bouquet any day!

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M

It's right under $60- which is pretty great for 8 full size products! Brooke I say splurge, we're worth it!
