22 Apr Review, Swatches: Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights Summer 2014 Collection – Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing, Volumizing Brow & Hair Powder, Maracuja Bronzing Serum, LipSurgence Lip Gloss
Now that the weather has finally stopped being moody (and starting to warm up), I’ve totally got summer on the mind lately! Okay, so maybe I’m not breaking out the flip flops just yet, but you best bet that I’m seriously ready (buh-bye, snowpocalypse) for that golden and glowy makeup season.
Thankfully, Tarte is already indulging my thirst for everything Summer 2014, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic, especially since the Golden Days & Sultry Nights Summer 2014 Collection is definitely worth writing home to mom about. Boasting bold color and handy water-proof favorites, it’s time to channel your inner mermaid and test out any of these goodies for a true seasonal finish.
I’m all for some ah-mazing glam-and-go products, so I’m proud to say that while using the Fresh Eyes Maracuja Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Wipes, no traces of stubborn makeup were left behind, as these maracuja-infused makeup removing wipes cleanse the skin while leaving it dewy and radiant.
Equally fast yet effective comes the Not So Slick Oil-Absorbing Blotting Papers, which remove excess shine from your face, pronto. I just love sticking these babies inside my purse at all times, as its green tea and polyphenol-rich formula gets me camera-ready in a flash. And when my complexion is looking a bit dull, the Maracuja Bronzing Serum always comes to my aid, as its hydrating and glow-enhancing formula gives my skin a necessary dose of healthy-looking color whenever I need it.
To glam up my peepers, I’ve been crushing hard over the Limited-Edition Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara, which takes my sparse lashes to sky-high heights with its volumizing and conditioning formula. Plus, this baby is totally water-proof, so it’s totally worth wearing when you’re poolside later this year.
While we’re still talking about water-proof must-haves, the Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Long Wear Liquid Eyeliner lines your eyes gorgeous with a special-tipped applicator. With continued use, be prepared to achieve only the most precise cat-eyes with this liquid liner alternative. Finally, the Frame Worker Double-Ended Brow Powder Brush helps me achieve that fuller-brow look, as its dual-sided brush easily defines brows immediately.
Don’t let me forget to mention how awesome the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvinating Maracuja Self Tanning Face Towelettes work to get you that irresistible faux tan! I mean, application couldn’t be easier, as these facial towelettes can be easily wiped onto the face for a sexy, golden color. To set in your bronze even further, the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder uses Amazonian clay to set in makeup and skincare favorites for some heavy-duty long-wear. Additionally, Amazonian clay also finds its way inside the Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow & Hair Powder, which helps create the illusion of fuller brows (and scalp!).

And if you’re like me and love some juicy gloss for the summertime, the LipSurgence Lip Gloss glams up lips with a brightening pop of color you won’t find anywhere else. Promising a bombshell shine, your lips will be sure to thank you, as this tube of goodness uses vitamin E and jojoba oil to plump up your lips.
Orange lips are totally a hot trend this spring season, so try Blissful to deliver a warm-peach hue to your pucker.
However, if you are more of vibrant lippie lover, then Flush dresses up lips in a bold and bright berry-rose shade.
