Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted Primer Review


If you haven’t noticed yet, I am (kind of) obsessed with Tarte bases. I think this one will be my 4th(?) already. I don’t know I keep loosing count. I picked this up on my trip to Australia last year. I wasn’t really in search of anything in particular, but since I am a creature of habit, I just had to get something ‘base’ related and then I stumbled upon the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment in Light! Ugh, can I just say this just BOMB! 

I just had to pick this up because my research told me that this (bb) cream was an all in one skin care, makeup invention! It is basically a primer, moisturiser and a light foundation. 

On application, the primer is matte on the skin and spreads evenly really well. I use this on top of sunscreen, even if it already has SPF 30 in it. The more SPF, the better! I feel that I don’t really need to add another base product on top of this because it’s consistency is a bit (thick), but not like too thick. 

I prefer dotting this all over my face then spreading it with one of those tooth brush brushes(not an actual toothbrush!). I instantly felt the difference of smoothness on my skin after applying this! It definitely aids the process of makeup application!

This also holds up well through out the day. I mean, I live in a tropical country, what can actually stay in place on my face for the whole day? The struggle is real! The more important aspect is that this product doesn’t slip and slide around my face during the day. 

Did I mention that this product is Vegan?!


I wish this came in a larger packaging because right now it is only 1 oz. 😦

11 Simple Ways To Practice Self Love


  1. Find a mirror, look at yourself and smile.

Remind yourself that “I am beautiful, I am worthy and I am enough.”

      2. Reorganize, clean out all your things that are miscellaneous to your life at hand.

I am sure you have some junk lying around your place that you totally don’t need! Don’t be too sentimental over material things and maybe give them to someone who needs them more.

      3. Adopt a morning routine that’ll make you start off your day on a high note.

I usually catch upon my Instagram and Snapchat feeds for a few minutes, change into my gym clothes, check that I have everything needed for my workout then I head out! This isn’t much of a routine, but I usually wake up extra early to workout so the real routine starts after the gym!

      4. Do things that you’re passionate about.

Find your niche interest, build a great idea and share it with passionate people.

      5. Socialize more.

This is something I wish I did more in college. Get out of your bedroom, your projects can wait. Go have some brunch!

6. Make to do lists for the day to complete tasks more efficiently.

Doing this would really help me organize my thoughts and at the end of the day, did I feel accomplished! Seeing all the tasks I have ticked that day!


7. Watch an uplifting TEDtalk.

Here are my favorites! How to live passionately. The power of introverts. Grit: The power of passion and perseverance. Your body language shapes who you are. 

8. Take breaks of fresh air through out the day.

Sitting in a desk all day can be quite stressful even if you aren’t putting yourself in any physical activity because your brain is doing all the work! Get out of that chair, grab a coffee and get some fresh air.

9. Make someone feel good. Compliment them and mean it.

Get to know and be aware of the people around you. Make someone smile for a change.

10. Forgive yourself.

Forgive yourself for lacking in self love. Forgive yourself for failing at tasks or making mistakes. Forgive yourself for undervaluing your worth and forgetting how incredible of a person you are.

11. At the end of most days(significant days), write down what you are thankful for.

Remember what you have and how lucky you are to have it. No many people live with a luxury of a loving family and amazing friends, or worse, a home. Stay grateful.

Best of Beauty in 2016!


Yes, the year is finally coming to an end and it is time to pick some stand-outs that made all the make up magic difference. There were definitely some stand outs and classic favorites this year. I can’t wait to see what the make up industry has in store for their consumers aka me and all you beauty addicts. 


Tarte BB Tinted Treatment in Light. I sort of treat this as a tinted primer and sometimes a bb cream because it has a bit of a tint to it and at the same time really mattifies my complexion. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted BB Moisturizer in Ivory. I haven’t been into actual foundations this year because I honestly couldn’t bother buffing my face everything I went out. Plus, it was always super hot(as per usual). 

Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in 10 Light. This one has got to be my lifesaver of the year. I ALWAYS use this thing, even as an over all base when I would be lazy(most occasions). Its perfectly creamy and evens my skin tone. I am so close to opening my backup already.



Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder. This actually ran out on me(as every favorite product does) mid year because I would use this every time I used a powder(which is every time). 

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in 52 Vanille. Yes, I put two powders in this list because I waited so long to have this in my hands and it was definitely worth it. It was everything I hoped for and more. (overreacting but yeah)

Shade & Light:

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. I know I put this in last year(link HERE!), but it still is my favorite till this day(as i’m writing this). I think Too Faced crafted this endless pit of a bronzer in a way that it hardly even dented itself after using it this whole time.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Exposed. FAVE FAVE FAVE!!! Did I mention that it stays on forever? Lovely shade + Stays on the whole day = never going to let this go.

KIKO MAKE UP MILANO Shimmer Shadow Stick in 02. This stick of light is all I ever need. Unassuming in a sense that it isn’t lightsaber bright but enough to tie your everyday look together.


Eyes & Brows:

Maybelline Fashion Brow. Instead of rambling about how amazing this product is, please do read the review I made on this(link HERE!). TBH, I never felt this attached to a drugstore brow pencil.

Kat von D Tattoo Liner. This has been listed as the best liquid eyeliner in the market. I can’t contest to that. It’s damn amazing.


Revlon Colorstay Liner in Rose. This is my go to lip liner for casual Saturday night outs and work meetings. Appropriate for all seasons. Did I mention that it lasts on pretty long?
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment
This is no hoax or some type of hyped up product. This actually works. I try to remember to apply this every night before I sleep because it the next best thing from coconut oil.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy. I don’t know when this will not be on my list. This has got to be my all time favorite lipstick from MAC or ever. I have yet to try their other shades liek Taupe and Whirl but UGH! this is so good. It is my go-to lipstick when I can’t decide what to wear because peachy nudes never fail.
