Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer 



Tarte is one of my all time favorite makeup brands. They have amazing, high quality cosmetics plus they’re free of most of the ingredients I like to avoid • A win/win in my book!

I bought this on a whim because I wanted a new concealer that would be similar to Benefit’s “Erase Paste” but either in a tube or with a wand. I didn’t like sticking my fingers in the container. 

What Tarte claims it does…

Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer offers long-lasting, full coverage in a creamy, velvety texture with pure skin-soothing ingredients. This high-performance natural formula is infused with tarte’s pure maracuja oil, which helps to improve skin’s texture, tone, and moisture content while imparting a brightening, dewy, luminous finish. In addition to promoting healthy skin, this velvety concealer is also ideal for masking discoloration and imperfections such as acne, blemishes, redness, scars, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles. This nutrient-rich, blendable, liquid makeup brightens and restores skin’s natural luster, leaving you with a flawless complexion

What it really does…

I actually completely agree with that description. It’s a very thick consistency so I like to use my fingers to apply it. I squeeze a bit onto my ring finger and then rub it between my fingers to warm it up so it’s a little easier to work with and it becomes this beautiful creamy consistency. It layers really nicely, isn’t drying at all, kdoesn’t crease(!), and covers well. It’s great for anything from under eyes to blemishes. Plus, it’s paraben, petroleum, and phthalate free.  I love this stuff so much I’m thinking about getting two shades when I run out of this tube. One for correcting my undereyes and one for blemishes.

Valentine’s Pink Lip Favorites

I love any excuse to wear pink lipstick. Here my top 5 favorites for Valentine’s day!

image2 Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in “Destined”

This is a gorgeous matte magenta color with the slightest hint of purple.

image6Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in “Pink Pop”

Even though this is just a gloss it is so pigmented you could totally just wear it alone if you don’t want a high maintenance lip.

image5Too Faced Melted Liquified Longwear Lipstick in “Melted Fuschia”

This is BRIGHT. It definitely pops off your face and I love it! Plus, the formula is so longwearing and comfortable on the lips.

image4Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in “Winterberry”

I almost didn’t put this in because it was from a limited edition holiday kit but it is one of my all time favorites so I couldn’t not mention it. The formula of this stuff is amazing and they have so many other gorgeous colors.

image3Revlon Colorstay Colorburst Lacquer Balm in “Vivacious”

This is so moisturizing and pigmented. It looks just like the outside of the tube. Revlon definitely got it right with this one.

Tarte CC Bronzer Blush – Park Ave Princess – Pink Bronze

I was so excited to get this as a gift from one of my best friends for christmas! I have loved every Tarte Product I’ve ever tried and I hadn’t ever heard of or seen this before. The first thing I noticed was how beautiful the packaging is. It reminds me of a stone from the desert or something, so unique, and the inside is even prettier. The pattern pressed into the pigment is absolutely gorgeous!

Now onto the actual product inside…You can purchase it online here.

Here are the claims –

“All-over buildable bronzer blush infused with color-correcting colored clay.

Product Performance: Glow beyond with tarte’s latest complexion-enhancing essential. This all-over mineral powder delivers natural radiance and instant dimension with the perfect balance of bronzer and blush for any skin tone. Offered in a gorgeously warm park ave princess™ bronze shades, the buildable formula imparts the perfect level of sunkissed radiance as the nutrient-rich powder brightens skin without appearing dry or flakey. Infused with tarte’s revolutionary colored clay, this skinvigorating™ formula helps to restore gentle skin balance and defend against free radical damage.”

Here’s my take – 

It’s a light bronzer/blush/highlight combo. I wouldn’t call it “all over” because of the shimmer and the fact that you can’t just dip your brush in one color. You’re inevitably going to get some pink and you definitely don’t want that all over. It is perfect to throw in your bag if you just need a little something to perk up your look throughout the day because it gives a glowy, healthy, lit from within look and it’ll definitely give you that “sun kissed” look. All of the colors are shimmery but not at all glittery or shiny looking and it doesn’t have that annoying overspray of glitter on the top. This is the perfect product to sweep on your cheeks before you run out the door and you’re set. I am so happy she got it for me and I’m loving it!
