tarte LipSurgence Lip Tints - Review

•••
I really love the tarte Lipsurgence lip tints. Normally I don't go for natural looking lippies, but these have somehow won me over. I'm not sure exactly how, as I don't tend to like lip stains. I have an awful habit of biting my lips, so I often avoid lip stains. However, these don't emphasize my lips (bitten or not) in a negative fashion. The colors stick a[...]

Peach Gelato

•••
I used to go to a great italian restaurant (Tuscany in Oakbrook) when I was in Chicago and they had the best peach gelato that I've ever tasted. They'd make it and serve it inside a frozen peach. Yum. I guess I'm thinking about gelato because it's been cold here in Tampa! When I say cold, it's been 45 or so on my drive to work. That's cold for me! That's one[...]

Lit from Within

•••
The products used in this look all have one thing in common to me... they have a lit from within glow about them. The eye shadow I used in this look is TheBalm's Jet-Setting Jennifer, which is a pale gold that I think really glows. Evil Shades Heartstopper is a metallic hot pink, which I love. MAC Trace Gold blush gives me a bit of a healthy glow to my cheek[...]

Honeyed Absinthe

•••
I wore this look one day last week and really liked it, though I can see several things I'd change about it if I did it again. One, I'd blend the outer crease more. two, I'd put a different shade, perhaps a deeper green like Fyrinnae Dragon's Wing at the outer corner of the lid and outer v area, just to sort of transition better between Sugarpill Absinthe an[...]

Peach and Burgundy Look

•••
I wore this look on Friday, but it didn't photograph well at all. I've done something similar in the past, though I think the older look turned out better. I used Too Faced Peach Fuzz on the lid and then I layered a bit of Meow's Aurora Australius on it. Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Too Faced Peach Fuzz - lid Sugarpill Lov[...]
