Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted Primer Review

DSC01166

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. 😦

Sephora Dupes!! | Liquid Lipstick and Lipsticks

DSC00349

We are always out looking for the next best dupe in the market. But before we head out to have a look, you might want to see what you already have because chances are that you already have the thing that you want.

Take a peek of what I found in my drawers that were Sephora dupes and drugstore dupes! I found a sheer, nude and plum dupe for you guys! Thank God that I found this because this means that I don’t need to go out and buy things I don’t need!

The Clinique ‘Pop Lip’ Color & Primer in Nude Pop has been in the market for awhile. I usually pair this with a dark nude lip pencil and apply this on top to make it look like it has a bit of depth and shimmer. The dupes of this mid range lippie could possibly be the L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Beige Sienna and Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick in Rosetto.

This Nude dupe isn’t much of a drugstore dupe. But it is still a dupe that you can match at Sephora(*wink). The Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick in Stark Naked is sort of the fraternal twin sister of MAC’s Velvet teddy but it is a tad bit more orange. While the Bite Beauty Lip duo in Whisper makes a great pair! Sorry that I don’t have a link to this!

The Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita has got to be one of the brands best selling liquid lipsticks. Aside from it being a good quality liquid lippie, it is also VERY comfortable to wear! And I noticed after all this time that I had a dupe for this all along! A creamier dupe at that! The Bite Beauty Lip duo in Mystic is the ONE!

Check out the swatches!!

Currently | My Go To Skin Care

DSC09974

I know this is a bit random but I thought maybe you would like to see what I use on a (sort of) daily basis. So this is basically what I see first thing in the morning when I walk up to my bathroom sink. This isn’t all that I have but I do tend to rotate my skin car products from weeks at a time(every 3 weeks or so). These products are just a mix of what I put on when I wake up, right when I get home from work and before I head to bed.


In no particular order(because these are all my favorites):

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil If you are looking for something that will totally remove your makeup in a single wipe, this will probably your match. Although I prefer to lather this in my hands and apply it all over my face. This also makes removing heavy eye makeup ten times easier.

Philosophy ‘Purity Made Simple’ I play with a bunch of cleaners, but this one has got to be the most gentle one that I have tried. I usually use this when I wake up because there isn’t much dirt to clean out of. But even if it is SO gentle, this would work perfectly for people who have sensitive skin.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Face Firming Oil I like to use this before I head to bed about 3-4 times a week after I shower and cleanse before I head to bed. Just 4 drops of this is more than enough. A little goes a long way! I also made a review on this a few months back, link here!

DSC09975VMV Hypoallergenics Superskin 2 Monolaurin Mandelic Acid Toner for Combination Skin If I had t compare this to other toners that I have used, this has got to be the most potent! The smell and most of all the actual product! This gets out dirt you never even know you had! I made a review of this previously, link here! Since this is quite strong, I tend to use this only 3-4 times a week!

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser I don’t know what fascination I have with black skincare products… This cleanser comes out as sort of a black get but when you rinse it a bit with water it looks like any normal cleanser. When I like a skincare product that does what it says and doesn’t irritate my skin, I am all for it! So going to repurchase this one!
