New Tarteist Contour Palette

I ordered my Tarteist Contour Palette during the VIB sale, since I had 25% (retail price $45) and ordered it the morning it was released. I have had time to finally decide my thoughts on this palette and also put a review on Sephora. If you’re amazed by the beauty of this palette prepare for some shocking news.  (more…)


HIT or MISS? NYX Wonder Stick (Shade: Universal)

I wanted an easy-on the go contour/glow tool, I finally decided to try out the NYX Wonder stick! I am going to have to add this to a summer necessity! It adds the perfect bronze/glow appearance in a few simple steps!


IMG_1127The wonder stick is a dual ended tool with one “contour” shade and “highlight” shade. This is the highlight side of the double ended wonder stick, which is light champagne shade. I have been wanting a liquid highlighter just have not decided on which one to buy, but this does the magic! The glow it leaves on the cheekbones is so natural because of how easy it is to blend.


IMG_1130This is the contour side, with a cool/orange toned shade. I picked the Universal Wonder Stick because t he contour was either to orange or too deep in the other shades. As you can see in the swatch it is just a perfect shade to do a little contouring with for my skin tone. Once I blended everything out, the contour shade added a great tanned glow to my skin. The highlight shade just compliments it perfectly!

I have dry to normal skin, and this is a very oiled based product. I can tell if I had oily skin it might just slip right off. I think if one had oily skin they would have to use this with matte foundation, matte powders, and a setting spray to make it last and set correctly. I had a Ulta coupon so it was about 10 bucks, but I think it is a great buy! You can easily take this with you on your summer vacation! I mean it is a 2 in one product, how much better can that get?! This is such a great HIT if you’re looking for a new way to easily enhance your summer glow.
