Tarte Young, Wild & Free Palette Review & Swatches

There's a lot to LOVE about Tarte's NEW Young, Wild & Free Palette! It's easy to carry around, because it's slightly larger than a business card case. You're given 8 beautiful eye-shadows: 2 mattes, 4 metallics, a highlighter & liner shade. It also has a generous-sized mirror so you can apply your eye shadow. The palette (eye shadows) smell like chocolate! Yummm! There's also a positive message on the front! "Throw kindness around like confetti", with bits of pink confetti gracing the front of the case. I think for kicks & giggles, they should make a "Throw shade" Palette ;) to pair with this one. LOL The only thing missing from this palette is maybe a little eye shadow applicator brush or holder where you can place one. It's an excellent palette for anyone that love nudes & neutral shades. What distinguishes it from other mini-palettes is that they give you a highlighter & liner shade. I found the pigmentation to be awesome and these shadows really have staying power. Swatch this the next time you're at ULTA, to see if this is for you. I thought this was similar to my Bobbi Brown Bellini Mini Lip & Eye Palette, but they're not even close (THANK GOD). I think I'll get even more use out of this one. So glad I picked it up! Be sure to enter my Tarte Lip Paint Giveaway. Blogger didn't post my blog post :(

It's Time For Another Sweet Surprise! Today's Sweet Surprise goes to Rowena of Rolala Loves Blog. I've known Rowena via blogging for MANY years. I have the utmost respect & admiration for her, both as a blogger & person. Her numerous skills constantly amaze me. She's a superb photographer! She has an eye for capturing things! It could be a moment, place, person, food, object, a flower, beauty products etc. Whatever IT is, she captures it OH SO BEAUTIFULLY. Her pictures speak to you! Their simplicity IS their grandeur. Rowena has taught me a lot about Asian culture & customs, food, movies & celebrities. I always learn so much from her posts! She's written several posts for my blog in the past, featuring these topics. I've been consumed with my house, so I haven't had much time to focus on anything extra, but I would love to revisit those topics in the future. Another thing that I admire about Rowena, is her writing skills. She's a beautiful writer! Very eloquent! Rowena, you should write a book! You're that good! You could be an author! Bottom line, I have TOTAL admiration & respect for you Rowena. I mean that. You have remained constant & consistent through the years and I thank you. I can't think of a more well-rounded & gifted person than you. I admire your personal style, your thoughts, suggestions in beauty, personality, your character and all the gifts you possess. You are a blessing to many and especially me! Continue to stay true to who you are! Your Sweet Surprise is an e-gift card to Sephora & Nordstrom. Several posts ago you mentioned some beauty items that you coveted. I would get them, but I don't know what shades! LOL Go shopping...get what you want (you don't have to stick to those same items if you've changed your mind) and enjoy my friend...enjoy! ((HUGS)) xoxo

Lots Of New Products From Tarte

(via foinika, tartecosmetics, glamtrashmakeup, chrisspy snapchat & trendmood ig)

Kiss & Blush Cream Cheek & Lip Palette Swatches

If you like cream blush, this may be the product for you! The colors are gorgeous! But they looked REALLY THICK LOL when they swatched them and almost everyone wore them as lip colors than cheek colors. So I don't know! LOL

Tarteist x MakeupByShayla Contour Palette & Swatches

This sold out! I knew about it, but just figured it may be too dark for me. Well I've seen fairer complexions rock this new contour palette. Let me back track! Tarte released a contour palette the beginning of this year, but it wasn't very compatible for darker skin tones. So they collaborated with YouTuber Makeup By Shayla on one for darker complexions. I'm in LOVE! The colors are gorgeous and I want it! I have the other one, but haven't reviewed it on the blog yet.

Tarteist Metallics Eye Shadow Swatches

Did Tarte win the lottery or what? They've been releasing new products all year! LOL Well anyway, they now have a collection of metallic eyeshadows. GlamTrashMakeup (I love her) swatched the new colors. They are very pretty and I think you can take them out of their cases. I also found some swatches on a lighter skin tone.

Smashbox Master Class Lighting Theory Palette (Available Now On Sephora)

(via smashboxsnaps snapchat)

I usually don't go for palettes with a whole lot of stuff in it, but there's something I LOVE about this palette. There are color correctors, bronzers & contours, highlighters, blushes and eye shadows. Plus, look at these swatches. This is only available at Sephora. I've got to get this!

Smashbox Single Eye Shadows (Available Mid July) 

(via smashboxsnaps snapchat)

Why!?! Why!?! I love nudes and Smashbox is coming out with nude single eye shadows!
Only a couple of swatches here, but they are gorgeous.

Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lip 

(via colourpopcosmetics snapchat)

These 4 metallic lipsticks sold out in 30 minutes! I don't have one ColourPop product but I love metallics and contemplating getting these. Plus the great price! They plan on restocking!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Chrome Eye Shadow

I was in Walgreens, the other day and they had these out. If you loved the Color Tattoo Shadows, I'm sure you'll love these. Seems like all products are going to liquid or stick form.

Marc Jacobs NEW Eyeliner

I LOVE SNAPCHAT, because companies are now offering discounts ONLY TO THEIR SNAPCHAT FOLLOWERS! Yaaaaay! I've been wanting these two palettes and because Kim Kardashian featured them on her app, the owner of Jouer offered them 1/2 price! It was a win win for me!
