Jade and Frost

In my look for today (the first one) I used the Maybelline One By One mascara in Blackest Black. It glides on easily, and does give a good amount of length and volume. I was expecting the brush to help seperate my lashes more easily but I don't think it does. I think the Bare escentuals flawless definition is better for seperation with some volume. My lashes do look good but not the best mascara I've tried.

  1. Thanks Shimmer, I can't get enough of Bondi Beach--if I didn't have so many colours I think I would wear it every day for a week!

  2. Very pretty!

    On another note: Overall what do you think of tarte products? I havent tried them yet . . .

    I have only gotten one Tarte collection but it did have a good variety of products in it. The eye shadows are just okay--nothing I have to have. I do not like the cheek blush sticks--the one I tried felt sticky and a little heavy on my face--maybe if you were used to that you might like it but since I can't feel my mineral make up at all I don't like to feel stuff on my face. I haven't tried thier new amazonion clay powder blush so I can't comment on that but it seems to get good reviews. I use the new clay brow stuff every day and I think it's good but I don't know if I would buy it again when I'm done.

    The Tarte products I LOVE are the Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. It is a good every day mascara that gives me length, volume and a little curl. It washes off easily (so not great for rainy days or when you will be crying).
    I also love the Tarte Lip stain chubby pencils. They are really expensive but if you get them on sale they are a little more reasonable. I only have one--Charmed--but I wear it all the time. It is a really great pink and the stain stays on for quite a while. It goes on glossy and moist so it doesn't dry out your lips and you don't need gloss over it. I think they have some matte versions which I haven't tried and probably don't have the glossy texture.
