Hi there! Happy Monday!
Recently I’ve picked up so many fun makeup items and while I *love* hauling them for you, I thought it would be fun to share some first impressions and reviews on some of the products I’ve gotten one at a time as opposed to one big haul or swatch fest. I am hoping that going into a bit more detail is helpful and one at a time will be less overwhelming. If you have any requests of products you’d like my opinion on, please feel free to let me know! I want to give the people what they want as much as I can ; ) I also am planning to work some of these products into tutorials and real wear reviews on my YouTube channel as well, so be on the lookout for that!
I was a bit nervous because I did order this online and thought that the color I ordered might not be right as it was described as being peach undertones and I always consider myself as pink undertones, but I went for it because there isn’t a pink undertones option in the lightest shade. So, thankfully upon first swatch “Fair Honey” for fair skin with peach undertones seems to be a good match. Beautiful packaging! And I love the netting that covers the foundation so it doesn’t get everywhere, but it’s soft netting so you can actually get it out by pressing your brush into it as opposed to having to dump some into the lid like I do with some loose powder products in my collection.
I was AMAZED at how little of this I needed! It’s a buildable full coverage foundation, and I love how natural it looks. I did find that the tip of my nose did get a bit shiny after several hours, but it was a warm day and I was fairly active. I love that it didn’t seem to break up on my skin, even on my nose where I was noticing some shine. I love that I was able to go back in a bit later in the day and add a little more to touch up. So far I am very impressed and think I’ll be wearing this a lot this summer!
I love this! I have a pretty decent collection of makeup brushes, but I don’t have ANYTHING like this! It is SO densely packed! I am glad that I ordered this to try with the makeup.
Could I use the foundation without this and get good results? Yes, probably! I have other kabuki style brushes and Bare Minerals brushes, but I am very happy I ordered this. Just like when I ordered my Cover FX Contour Kit (mentioned in my High End Beauty Haul video) and I said that I opted to try the brush that is suggested to use with it, I thought that I might as well try the brush that is made specicially for this foundation so I could give the foundation its best shot. I know that sometimes I will dislike a foundation until I swich up my application method and then I end up really enjoying it. I am so far very happy with this brush, and how cute is it?! VERY cute!
So, I have only worn this foundation for one full day, but so far I am very happy. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know! I would also love to do a turoial using this foundation and brush on my YouTube channel, so let me know if you’re interested in that as well.
Thank you as always for being here! It means so much to me to have a bit of your time! Also, be sure to be on the lookout for a Tarte giveaway coming up soon!! xoxo
