TARTE Shape Tape concealer review

First of all, sorry for not posting for a while! I’ve been really busy so I didn’t have plenty of time ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve recently add this concealer to my makeup collection and I don’t regret it at all! In my life I’ve tried loads of concealers and brands: Nars, Kat von D, Too faced… but this one worth the hype!

First let me talk about the packaging: it came into a super cool box, you can see that Tarte people know how to treat their clients, as they take care of small details.

The concealer size is great and the wand with which you apply it is just HUGE! as it says it is thought to be a contour product as well. That’s the reason why, after using it for a month, I realised I don’t need a lot of product. Once you apply three spots of this concealer the ideal is to blend it out by tapping it with a mini beauty blender. Afterwards I could see that is much better if you set it with a setting powder, as it helps to keep creasing effect away and to last all day. I always use my beloved Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder.

To me it has been one of the best recent discoveries! It worth the 24 euros by far.

My tone is medium honey, I’m brunette with a cool undertone so I thought it would match me. After being almost twenty years searching for the best concealer I think I’ve finally found it! ๐Ÿ˜

FROG PRINCE by Lipstick Queen

Recently I’ve fallen in love with this Australian brand: Lipstick Queen. I purchased one of their best products by far which is Frog Prince lipstick and blush. First of all I have to mention the packaging of the box that is like the cover of a story book ย full of amazing drawings such as a medieval castle.

The funny part comes when you open the box and you see a green emerald lipstick and blush. Like a fairytale, the green transforms into a nice glossy pink as soon as it touches your lips and skin. Depending on your skin PH it can vary in color from pomegranate to rose.

It is very hydrating, enriched with Vitamin E and Shea butter, which keeps lips moisturized and soft, with a subtle juicy effect. The blush is also special, it comes with a little mirror. I recommend to apply a little amount first as the color can be strong on your skin depending on its reaction with the formula.

To me that’s a perfect combination for an everyday look, when you are in a rush and you need to look nice and healthy. You can also be sure that the shade will suit you as it is different in each skin, so is a unique formula for everybody. I would totally recommend it!

Holidays look in silver and wine

I’ve based today’s look on winter colors: silver eyeshadows and wine matte lipstick. This is a great combination for dark cool undertones like mine which also match perfectly with silver jewellery and gray tops.

Knowing your skin tone and what colors suit best, for both clothes and makeup, can make a difference to your entire look. To get it I’ve been faithful to Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay, its Pistol and Verve cool tones. Verve is an amazing pearl shade with shinny finish and highly pigmented. Pistol is a brownish gray tone with also a shimmer finish, one of my ย favorites for an evening look or a special occasion.

I think silver tones provide a beautiful contrast to warm brown eyes, and fit very well with wine or plum lipsticks. Here I leave some swatches so that you can get the idea.

For this look I’ve used the following products:

Bareminerals Matte foundation in Medium tan.

Kat von D concealer in Cool.

Bareminerals powder concealer in Summer Bisque.

Laura Mercier loose setting powder to set the concealer and foundation.

Kat von D Shade and Light contouring palette.

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette Pistol and Verve tones.

Too faced blush in Your love is King.

MeMeMe Beat the Blues liquid highlighter.

Sephora M11 Matte lipstick and lip liner.

Kat von D Trooper Tatoo liner.

Too faced Better than sex mascara.
