~FOTD~ tarte Puttin' On The Glitz LE Color Collection and Purse-Day 2

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Hey Everyone!!

I'm on Day TWO of tarte Puttin' On The Glitz "Wear A Thon", as I call it! Day ONE can be found HERE with details on the kit and an overview of the Walk In the Park palette....


First, check out the deal on the collection over at ULTA...Free Lash Enhancer with purchase!!




Day TWO features "Nine to Five". This palette has five shimmers and one matte( that has a little shimmer in it)
The blush is one of the Amazonian 12 Hour 12 Clay Blush in Darling. I LOVE the Clay Blushes....here a LINK to my review on those. Those blushes are $25 a piece so having that one in just one of the palettes is a steal!


Let me note that I'm only wearing a primer underneath each shadow palette and mascara(with a black eyeliner in the waterline) to try to give a true assessment to the products.

The dark shades on these were better than Walk in the Park, as far as being "chalky" but the the lighter shades and that "matte" are a no go for me. Not in my shade game, wayyy to much white shimmer, gives me a white cast on the eyes. The medium pigmentation is consistent to Walk. I love that blush though...its a good Orgasm dupe, very golden, highly pigmented and stays on all day. The lip gloss (tarte PureOptic lip gloss) is just ok, a bit to light to go on alone for me and its sticky.
Stay tuned for Day THREE!!!!

~FOTD~ tarte Puttin' On The Glitz LE Color Collection and Purse-Day 1

 I thought Christmas had shown up early when I recieved tarte Puttin On The Glitz LE Color Collection and Purse. You know when you are an adult with kids, you don't expect gifts...ok some of ya'll do (lol!) but I never do. I'll call this a "gift".:)

Here's the deets on this collection!:
This holiday season shine like a screen siren with tarte's puttin' on the glitz limited-edition color collection & clutch. Inspired by the iconic glamour of Old Hollywood and this season's most sought-after accessory, this silver carry-all is truly something to marvel at. Featuring a slim row of gold-tone links and stunning metallic python leather (faux, of course), this clutch is bound to turn heads this season and sure to inspire a chain reaction of ooohs and ahhs.
Even better: this perfectly portable gift collection has three interchangeable palettes and a universally flattering, maracuja-infused lipgloss inside so it can easily transition throughout the day making it the ideal versatile option for your accessory wardrobe.
each set includes:



  • 3 interchangeable palettes for a total of 18 eyeshadows, 1 Amazonian clay 12-hour blush, 1 Amazonian clay shimmering powder and 1 park ave princess Amazonian clay bronzer









  • maracuja-infused lipgloss









  • reusable purse that features 4 credit card slots and a removable mirror









  • detailed "get-the-look" instruction card 
     







  •  I thought I would do a 3-Day Wear-A-Thon on the collection then do a summary/review on day three.
    Currently, this set is $48 on tarte's website with free shipping ( yesterday they had it for $33...so keep checking back, they might run another sale on it)

    Day 1: Walk In The Park Palette ( picture above)
     Excuse that hat...I had just washed, condish, and did a "Bantu" knot on my hair and I needed run errands.

    There are three shimmers and three mattes( they have a bit of shimmer to them, though) in the palette. This palette also includes  the popular tarte bronzer in Park Ave. Princess. The eye shadow have great pigmentation, around the medium level...I actually used the top to dark shades and got a great color...blends with ease as well.








    I will say, that the shimmer in the shadow is a bit on the chalky side, it gave me more of a white glow, instead of a golden glow, if you get what I'm saying. I'm not the biggest tarte shadow fan. Over the years, I didn't think that their color shadows worked well for a brown skinned girls such as myself, definitely more for the fair skinned. I thought I would give these a try to see if they were a bit better at the shadow game.

    Stay tuned for Day 2!!!
