This isn’t really a review, per se, of the Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure Opal and Pure Nude sparkle powders, but I wanted to show you swatches of them. I had an inkling that Pure Opal would be similar to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Jubilee, but OCC Jubilee is like a deeper, more mid-tone version of Pure Opal. Same color family, similar duochrome sparkling action, but not identical by any means.
Pure Opal is a sheer white tinged with blue that has yellow-green-gold sparkles. It sort of reminds me of watching the sun shine on fresh snow.
Pure Nude is a sheer peachy nude with yellow-gold-copper sparkles.
The Website Says:
“All sparkle is not created equal. Sparklicity Pure is total microcrystalline sparkle pigment to create fantastical sparkling effects. It can be used on the eyes, cheeks, face and lips.” XOXO, Tarina Tarantino, jewelry designer and makeup artist

I like the colors and I’m looking forward to playing with them.
In fact, you can see a look I did with both colors here. But here’s a teaser!
What do you think of them? These are the first Tarina Tarantino products that I’ve purchased.

Omg they look amazing!! I’m dying to try out some products from her line might want to pick up a palette but these look amazing too..tough one
These are now gone from the Sephora website but they may be available in store.
Ooooh, so pretty and sparkly!!
They are so much fun and sparkly.
Both of these are very pretty! Really like Opal! Thanks for the swatches!
You’re welcome Peach!
I love the Pure Nude color. It’s the perfect base color for the lid where you can wear it alone or with any other color. I love how it catches the light!
I’m really impressed with it! It would look amazing on you
OMG, these two colors have been on my wishlist. Beautiful!! I think I would use the Nude one a lot, but the Opal is also really gorgeous. Thanks for the swatches!
You’re welcome Megan
Both of these are gorgeous! Can’t wait to see you use them.
I’m trying to think of ways to combine them
