TARTE: Highlighter in "exposed" / TARTE: Blush in "glisten"
I don’t know if you guys know about Ulta’s 21 days of beauty, but yesterday All Tarte amazonian clay highlighters and blushes were half off! Such a deal! Both the highlighters and blushes retail for $29, which meant they were only $14 each! I got one highlighter and one blush. I chose the highlighter in the shade “exposed” which is a nude gold highlight and the blush in the shade “glisten” which is a peachy pink with gold sparkles! I am wearing both products today. I loved the texture of the highlighter. It was super buttery and so easy to blend. The color is super pigmented and the perfect shade of nude gold that I was looking for. Now for the blush… I wanted to love it, I really did! Especially for the price. But, I didn’t care for it. For one, the color was a lot different than I expected. I thought the blush would be an equal mixture of pink and peach, but it was more pink than peach. And for me, the gold flecks killed it because when you apply the blush there are like streaks of gold instead of even specks of glitter on your cheek. It looked very messy and all over the place. Plus, I had purchased this blush for an everyday blush, and if I were to ever wear it, I would probably wear it in the evening only, and in the Summer. Lol. But only “if” I were to wear it haha. I’m happy I found a highlighter, but so disappointed about the blush… And I just ordered the shade “glisten” in Tarte’s cheek stain before I bought the pressed version of this blush. So, you know what that means? I’ll be returning it haha. I’m so bummed! But I am just lucky that Ulta has a good return policy. Even if you use a product from Ulta, and you don’t like it, they will let you return it for the full price you paid for it, with a receipt of course. I will sadly be returning the blush And, if you’re wondering, today is the last day for Ulta’s 21 days of beauty! Today’s beauty steals include: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil for 50% off, Clinique 3-step intro kits are 50% off (this is the kit I bought that made me fall in love with Clinique skincare, including the Clinique clarifying lotion that I talked about in a recent post), and a free brow wax at the Benefit brow counter ($21 value) with the purchase of $50 or more in Benefit products. You can also order the items online for the same deal, but do it today because it is the only day for those beauty steals! I hope everyone has a nice relaxing Saturday night! I’m hungry & craving pasta! So I am going to leave this post at that! xoxo.
