Beauty Review and First Impressions


So I decided to play with a few new items I got from Sephora over the last few weeks and give you guys a first impressions....I will also post the pics from the final look.


The first one I am going to talk about is the Tarte mini contour and highlight package.  I love the contour!  It is very natural looking and for someone who doesn't go to the extreme with contouring, this is perfect.  I didn't use the highlighter.



I used Colour Pop's Echo Park (the bottom nude shade) and it was very lovely.  Very suede in how it felt and it was creamy without being drying.  I actually really love this so much, that I will be purchasing more of their lip products soon!


Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea concealer was fabulous!  I absolutely love the formula and because it feels a bit more watery, it is perfect for under the eyes and not creasing!  Totally would buy this all over again!


The last new thing I got was the Smashbox Art. Love. Color. palette.  I would love to tell you that I liked this palette, but I gotta say, I have a few issues with it.  First thing I will say in it's favor is that most of the colors are well pigmented.  I say most, because some are non-existent.  The ebony color, which you would assume is a dark black, is more like a deep grey.  I was very disappointed.  And the fallout on these shadows is insane.  The blending on these shadows were another miss for me.  You will see in the final picture that the shadows were not so easy to blend out.  I also prefer the blushes as eye shadows, I just feel like the colors aren't that great on the cheeks.  This might be the very first thing I return to Sephora ever.  


So here is the final eye look....


And here is the total look....
