When I was wandering about in Canada a while ago (Can I live there please?) I came across the one and only SEPHORA! I pretty much spent my whole day in there awing at every single freakin' product. After many hours I came to the decision that I couldn't leave without one of those black & white bags, I HAD to choose an item or two. Clearly I decided to pick up these two honeys and while we're on the subject can we just admire this packaging... I'm pretty sure I'd buy the whole of Tarte just because and to be honest that was half the reason I bought these two matching cutie's, but on to the review type thing...
I'd seen Anna mention this LipSurgence power pigment in Tipsy before I left so I had
very high hopes for it, and it partly lived up to them, I think the colour looks incred in the tube but it doesn't look AS incred on my lips which I think is due to my skin tone. It did look better on Anna and for that I'm quite jealous (not the only thing) It is however VERY pigmented hence 'power pigment' I even thought it looked kinda neon on my lips. I didn't find the staying power very spectacular there are much better in that department but the formula well now that is something! Its like a super buttery lipstick with a matte finish ?! Also it tingles and tastes minty which personally I loovvee.
Onto my No.1, the Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy. When I first used this a Canadian woman actually said my skin looked amazing and I'm not even joking p.s my skin really isn't amazing, so I knew for sure it was down to this. I like to swipe it onto my cheeks then pat it in around the apples of my cheeks (technical). It has just the right amount of colour so even when your in a rush and you race out of the door you don't look like a clown. perfect! It does have a fair bit of shimmer in it which makes your cheeks look dewy as anything, the colour looks so natural and basically just makes your skin look real nice I now want the whole collection.
So in conclusion,
The cheek stain: very worth the hefty price tag a big thumbs up
The LipSurgence power pigment: not SO much but still a good thumbs up
Thanks for reading, let me know if you've tried any Tarte products :)
