Tarina Tarantino Jewel palette in Dreamy


Tarina Tarantino has one of my favorite eye shadow textures in her Jewel palettes. They left Sephora and I picked up a few then to add to what I already had. Gorgeous! They are sold now through her site and beauty.com and I would highly recommend checking them out!


Today I have Dreamy, it has my favorite copper in my collection. It doesn't go too bright orange on me which is impressive. Most things pull extremely warm on my skin tone.

The deepest shade works well as liner and very little of the sparkle shows, I have not had issues with glittery fallout used that way either.


The taupe is a lovely cooler tone to balance out the warmer shades, and I like the combination on the cream and gold highlight colors. It is all shimmery to an extent but not to the point of being metallic and difficult to use in the crease.

Have you tried any shadows from Tarina Tarantino? What's your favorite? Thanks for stopping by!

Berry and Bright Sheer Lip Colors

Thought I'd share a few deeper bright lip colors I've been using lately since I picked up the Sephora 2014 Give Me More Lip kit. I was wearing the Tarte Power Pigment pencil in Flush today and thought it looked similar to my beloved Jordana Twist & Shine stain in Cranberry Crush, figured I'd do a couple swatches and try to actually get a blog post up for the first time in months!

The Tarte Flush pencil is the most pigmented with the rest in decreasing levels of pigment left to right in my swatch, it's a little more bright pink compared to the other more berry shades.
I've reviewed the Jordana balm stain on my YouTube channel, I love the color but it doesn't really stain.

The Tarte LipSurgence pencil in Moody is more a wine/brownish color which is fairly unique to my collection, I look forward to playing with it more!

The Fresh Berry lip balm can be built up to a rather deep lip, but it's very slippery and slides around quite a lot. My face gets bumped around taking care of the baby during the day, so we're both likely to have it all over our faces by the end the day. 

Let me know what your favorite sheer berry lips are, it's always an easy option this time of year!
