If you don't know anything about Tarte, here is a little overview...
Tarte is a company that is a leader to offering cosmetics that are full of vitamins, essential oils and natural ingredients. They are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, synthetic fragrances, GLUTEN, and triclosan.
Do i know exactly what any of those words mean or what they do?....umm no....but if i can't even pronounce them, im sure they aren't good for my body!!!
I remember a couple years ago, I read a lot about the HCG diet. They mentioned that you could not use any oils, lotions, "fats" on your body while on the diet. Now I am not here to blog about this diet, but my point is that if you are on a diet to fat load and then not put any fat into your body, would you think about lotions, face and body oils? I never really thought about what I have been putting on my skin that affects my body. Your skin is the largest organ in the human body. I think it is so important that we start paying more attention to what we eat but also what we put on our body and surround ourselves with.
So enough about the healthy lecture! Lets get into these fabuloso products!!!!
In December I became more familiar with the Tarte products and I purchased the Amazonian clay 12 hour full coverage foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen. I LOVE IT!!!
I have combination skin. Unfortunately I deal with breakouts at that "time of month" and my t zone tends to be very oily. This product is a clay foundation which will give you a matte finish. I can't even put in to words how great it is! The product is light and gives great coverage. I do use a highlighter, concealer, bronzer and blush with this foundation. When using all of those products with a liquid foundation, you do not want a full coverage foundation! I can go more into detail about foundations, highlight/contour, concealer, etc. if yall are interested!
Another product that I purchased from Tarte is the Amazonian Clay finishing powder! I actually just used it for the first time today! Love it!!
I have been very oily with dry patches lately....im sure its due to this ridiculous humidity/dry/cold/beautiful/sunny/hot weather....lol thats ST PETE FLORIDA for ya! ;) but i just love this powder. I have tried several different setting powders for my foundation that I have been ok with, but I didnt' actually LOVE. This product is a light white powder in a jar. You just press on the sides and it will dispurse just the right amount for a one time full face coverage. I use a small pointed brush and pat it under the eye, on the jaw line, above the eye brows, the middle of the nose, the cupids bow and the bottom point of the chin.
Another product I purchased is the lights, camera, flashes mascara. I haven't used it yet, but I'm picky about my mascara, so I will get back to you all on that one!
