Hi Lovelies, Blessed Rainy Sunday to you all.
I’ve been busy for quite a while with some Family matters. Not been able to drop by to your lovely blogs, and respond to some of my blog comments.. so many pages to read and so many package to admire. This week has been quite stressful for my siblings and me. I am thankful that everything is okay now. Indeed, God is Good all the time! This has been a very fruitful and blessed week for us, which somehow strengthen our bonds as siblings, and renew our faith that nothing is impossible to our God Almighty! We had a little Thanksgiving feast yesterday, and spent our time together.
So, Today i just want to share this review and some swatches of Tarte Blusher & Bronzer On the Go set that I recently got from La Petite Confiserie.
- Amozonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface 3.20 g/0.11 oz. (Full size is 0.2 oz)
- Mineral Bronzer in Park Ave Princess 3.20 g/0.11 oz. (Full size is 0.32oz)
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
Described by Tarte as...
A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.
Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours.
Suitable for oily and dry skin types. Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay's nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin's moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
This blush also features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients:
- Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage
- Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin
- Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin's surface for smooth application and wear
The full size (.2 oz) blush, that is currently available from other Philippine based online shops such as eBay, costs at around 1,500 pesos each. It's quite expensive, Good thing I found a great deal, for this set is only 1,200 pesos from La Petite.
This is a great way for people to test these products out without spending too much. They are so cute. However, I’m not so fond of the plasticky packaging, it reminds me of my baby’s fake cosmetics from her vanity toys.
Tarte Dollface- it’s a pretty matte soft, cool, light dusty pink shade that I really love. I thought it would be too bright judging from its color in the pan, but it produced a wonderful color when I did my swatch and applied it on my cheeks.
The shade seems to be neutral pink that would work best on both warm and cool toned ladies with light to medium skin tones. This is really a wonderful product! I’ve been using this for quite a while and it doesn't break me out! It is well pigmented. Honestly one swoop of this product on the cheeks is all you will need.
It’s not as hot bubble pink shade as the NARS Desire. Dollface is a pretty matte neutral pink! It just gives a nice flush of color that lasts.
Onto the Bronzer- Park Avenue Princess
The shade is lovely, true medium Golden Bronze! It has a gold sheen with very micro shimmer, that you can barely see when applied on the face.
As you can tell, the two bronzers are very comparable in color though NARS laguna is more yellow and Golden than the Park Avenue Princess, which is slightly darker, and bronze-ier.( if that makes sense)
Both Shades has a slight sheen to it. I have applied them as my Bronzer and contouring powder on my jaw, cheek and down my neck. the sheen that they have is not very noticeable.
I love the Blush and Bronzer. The shades are lovely, have a great texture and very well pigmented. I haven’t worn any of these for a full 12 hours, but after 6-7 hours, the color didn't totally fade. Moreover, Knowing the facts that it has anti-aging nutrients and free from any harmful properties made me want these products more. I hope I can get all the other beautiful shades next time.
If you are looking for a product that is free from any harmful formulation, I would definitely check out this bronzer or the TARTE Park Ave Princess Matte Waterproof Mineral Powder Bronzer.
