Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Palette Color Wheel Review and Swatches

One of my all time favorite Tarte products has to be their Amazonian Clay Blushes. The colors have just the right amount of pigmentation, they show up but don't overwhelm your face and are just so pretty! I had some years ago, but hit the pan and never replaced them when I finished them. The life of a beauty blogger... you have so much other stuff that sometimes it is very hard to justify purchasing a favorite product again.

When I was drooling over the new holiday shadow palettes they released, this new blush color wheel palette caught my eye. It's a great way to get a selection of the blushes that I like so much, but I don't need to have the full sized versions!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - Surreal Light Review and Swatches

I've heard the hype for a long time. Those Hourglass Ambient Highlighters... amazing! My friends (mostly beauty bloggers) have been raving about them, snapping them up as soon as new ones are released, discussing in Facebook groups when the next version will be released... it goes on and on. And I've been over here in the corner going... really? Is it really that special? And refusing to buy. Because really, those shimmer powders seem expensive, and they're always sold out so...

But, yes, they're always sold out. Is there maybe a reason?

So, when this new palette was released on Sephora's website recently, I snapped it up. I was finally going to try this stuff out, and this palette had enough different types of the Ambient Lighting powders, that I kind of felt like I was getting an ok deal.

Read on to see what I thought!

The Drugstore Makeup Kit: My Picks

The Drugstore Makeup Kit: My Picks

It's been a long time since I put together an entire makeup kit. In my normal life, I use a mixture of high and low products, though many of my every day staples are ones that you can buy at your local drugstore. If a $10 product works just as well (or better) than a $30 product, why spend the extra money?

When shopping for my drugstore makeup kit, I headed for my local CVS Pharmacy. It’s offering more in beauty than ever before and has really evolved to become a one-stop shop for pharmacy and beauty needs. My local store has every one of my normal staple items, carries a huge range of brands like NYX, L'Oreal and ELF, and their exclusive brands such as Nuance Salma Hayek, and Makeup Academy (MUA) have great must-haves also. It doesn't hurt that there are new release displays every time I turn around!

One of my favorite things about CVS is the Beauty Club, which earns you money off of future purchases! You can earn $5 for every $50 you spend, or even more ExtraBucks with special offers. I love checking my receipt as I leave the store to see how many ExtraBucks I earned for my next visit!

The Drugstore Makeup Kit: My Picks

My Picks:
1. Maybelline Dream BB Fresh: This is a great CC Cream! It has just the right amount of coverage, is a light weight moisturizer and blends into your skin beautifully.

2. L'Oreal Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer: A medium to full concealer that simply does not cake!

3. L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder: I love a good translucent powder, and this one is finely milled and does a great job of soaking up any excess oil. I often have one in my purse!

4. Maybelline Facestudio Master Contour Face Contouring Kit: A matte bronzer, light blush and just right highlighter all in one spot.

5. NYX Eye Shadow Base: This is my normal go-to shadow primer. It covers up my lids, helps my shadow blend better and last all day, and it only takes a few seconds to apply.

6. L'Oreal Paris Cosmetics Stylist Prep and Shape Brow Liner Kit: As I've gotten older, I've come to depend upon my brow products more and more. A well defined brow can go a long way towards making my makeup look amazing! This palette from L'Oreal is one of my favorites, it has a wax and just right powder.

7. L'Oreal Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quads in Boudoir Charme: The Colour Riche quads are my favorite drugstore shadows. They are well pigmented and look much more expensive than they really are! I've found that 4 colors is great, it gives me the chance to create a few looks with the same quad, but it isn't overwhelming.

8. Maybelline Lasting Drama in Glazed Toffee: I love this eye liner! The formula is gel-like, it is very easy to smudge right after application but after about 30 seconds it stays put. So, smudge fast, then it will stay perfect all day!

9. L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer and L'Oreal Voluminous Feline Mascara: I have a combination of products to really give me long and lush lashes. In general, I've found that any mascara from L'Oreal, CoverGirl or Maybelline is a good buy!

10. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in 630 Seduction: A great peachy-nude color that will work for a variety of occasions.

What products make it into your drugstore makeup kit? I would love to know!
