Ingredient Review: Tarte Cosmetics Colored Clay Collection -- CC Undereye Corrector, Eye Primer Stick, Tinted Brow Gel -- GIVEAWAY

Buffing on some mineral powder compared to ordinary foundation always makes us feel special. “I can apply as much as I want, ’cause it’s good for me!” you might exclaim. So, this fall, embrace some colored clay from Tarte Cosmetics. Tarte first introduced colored clay with their CC Primer swivel stick (with purple and green colored clay), which proved to be a multi-tasking, skin perfector that brightens, evens skintone, blurs imperfections and neutralizes any redness or discoloration.

But what exactly is colored clay? And why is it so good for our skin? The colored clay can be found off the Brazilian coastline, and contains natural ingredients like magnesium, titanium and iron. As these rich minerals oxidize, they turn into a rich color. As seen in the primer stick, colored clay has shown to provide anti-aging, oil production, hydration and anti-inflammatory benefits. Tarte Cosmetics harvested the colored clay, made sure it dried naturally in the sun, then shaved it into a fine powder for it to be infused with the latest cosmetics line. And there’s every type of colored clay you can think of, from yellow clay (offsets dark spots and blemishes) to red clay (helps improve the appearance of skin elasticity).

Some new additions to the Tarte Cosmetics Colored Clay family include: Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector (Light-Medium, Medium-Tan), Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick and Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel (Taupe, Medium Brown, Rich Brown).

The CC Undereye Corrector instantly masks undereye discolorations and dark circles, while improving the appearance of skintone and texture over time. This corrector is entirely full-coverage, and includes light-diffusing particles to diffuse dark circles. It contains rose clay to soothe the skin around the eye area and caffeine to help improve micro-circulation while reducing puffiness. And this is just some of the many eye-enhancing ingredients!

Ingredient Review: Tarte Cosmetics Colored Clay Collection -- CC Undereye Corrector, Eye Primer Stick, Tinted Brow Gel -- GIVEAWAYThe universal shade of the Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick (left) is infused with lid-nourishing and color-correcting colored clay. We didn’t even know vanilla clay was a thing until now! But it helps control oil to keep eyeshadow pigments in place all day. Green and yellow clay are also involved to diffuse an uneven skintone and neutralize any redness around the eyes. While this eye primer stick conditions your delicate eyelid, it also makes your shadow last for up to 12-hours!

Fill in some sparse hairs and protect those healthy brows! All of this can be achieved with the Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel that lets you enhance, define and shape your brows like a pro. The tiny brush head dispenses just the right amount of color, so you won’t go overboard during application. Its creamy formula contains peptides to condition and smooth brows, while reducing surface oils to keep pigment in place all day long!

Step 3. Blow-dry hair straight with natural bristle brush.
Step 4. Create a clean center part.
Step 5. Comb hair straight back creating slight lift at the crown.
Step 6. Gather hair into a low ponytail covering ears and secure with elastic.
Step 7. Place elastics every 2-3 inches down the ponytail.
Step 8. Pull hair in between each elastic to puff out the hair.
Step 9. Finish with Redken control addict 28 super strength finishing spray.

Review, Swatches: 3 Reasons Why Liquid Blush Is Better Than Powder, Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush

Review, Swatches: 3 Reasons Why Liquid Blush Is Better Than Powder, Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush Best

Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream – Best For Darker Skintones, Complexions

My summer beauty routine has been super-simple this year: concealer, tinted moisturizer, blush, lipgloss, mascara… done!  While my 5-staple items haven’t changed at all, I recently swapped out my powder blush (MAC‘s Ambering Rose ) in exchange for liquid blush. I’d never used liquid blush before, but after using Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Fusion Blush, it’s safe to say, I’m a total fan!

Review, Swatches: 3 Best Reasons Why Liquid Blush Is Better Than Powder, Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush

Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Fusion Blush gave my cheeks the perfect pop of coral color and was very easy to apply. I used the dropper to place 2 drops of the liquid blush right on the apples of my cheeks. I placed it on top of my tinted moisturizer using a damp Beautyblender sponge. Then, I dabbed the blush upwards over my cheek, in the direction toward the top of my ear.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Compact – With Argan Oil To Nourish Skin

Overall, I loved the soft, dewy color I achieved! The blush looked very natural and glided on so smooth! Here are 3 more reasons I’ll be adding this liquid blush to my daily routine.

Review, Swatches: 3 Reasons Why Liquid Blush Is Better Than Powder, Giorgio Armani Maestro Best Fusion Blush

1. The dropper provides a fool-proof application. Sometimes, with my powder blush, I tend to be heavy-handed and accidentally apply too much. Once the powder is on my skin, it seems impossible to undo the damage without using makeup remover to start all over again. With the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush, the dropper always disperses the perfect amount of color!

2. A dewy finish looks more natural. I love a no-makeup makeup look and feel. I have acne-prone skin, and my facial medications tend to zap all of the oil from my skin. Therefore, powder can make my face look too cake-y. This liquid blush gave my cheeks beautiful color sans that powdery, dry look.

3. The color is easy to layer. If you love rich color on your cheeks, this blush makes it very easy to layer on another coat.  Just use the dropper to dab on another drop of the liquid color, blend and you’re done!
