Hello beautiful people!
Would you believe I went on another Tarte haul craze? Because I sure do!
If you were not aware, Tarte Cosmetics recently debuted their Make Believe In Yourself limited edition collection. It features two new matte lippies, a shimmery eyeshadow and face palette, a powder highlighter, a liquid highlighter, body glitter, a rose gold glitter liner, a revamped Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara with super cute holographic packaging, AND UNICORN MAKEUP BRUSHES. This is not a drill!
Once the collection was released, I literally ordered those Unicorn brushes right away, as well as the powder highlighter and the mauve/pinky matte lip paint. I couldn’t resist the cuteness overload. Can I ever? The answer is a resounding no. If you know me at all, you would know that I love anything mermaid, mythical, and magical. Unicorns are no exception, so there was never any question about whether or not I would be purchasing items from this collection.
First off, look at how pretty the packaging alone is! LOVE!
Not only are these unicorn brushes adorable, but they are so incredibly soft! Seriously, these are the softest brushes I own. The good thing is that even though the bristles are super soft, they are really dense which makes picking up product, really easy and effortless. So far, I have used the dense purple brush on the very right for blush and it works wonderfully. It would also work great as a contour brush as well.
As you can see, the powder highlight features four different shimmery highlight shades. Most are neutral, with the exception of the purple on the end, but all come out pretty natural once on the face. You could use each shade as a highlight on their own, butI prefer to swirl them altogether to create a colorful glow. Tip for those who are looking to purchase this: the highlight is pretty light and bright, and rather frosty so if that is what you are looking for, then I highly recommend this!
Below are swatches (no flash) of the powder highlights and the matte lippie in “Festival.”
Overall, I am really happy with my purchases. The brushes are beautiful and great quality. The highlight gives a really pretty glow, and the matte lippie is a really good nude lip color. For me, it’s a great #MLBB! If you are looking into getting some of the items from the collection, I am pretty sure you won’t be disappointed! So don’t forget to stop by the Tarte Cosmetics website right now, or your nearest Sephora starting in April when this hits stores.
Until next time beautiful people!
