Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette Review | First Impression

tarte tarteist pro palette review
I recently picked up the new Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette ($53) from the Tarte website and I was so excited when it arrived yesterday! I wanted to post a quick first impression with swatches because I know quite a few of you were holding off on buying this until you had some more information on it. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed with their holiday sets, but they are definitely back on track with this palette!

Also, I just want to note that this palette is made in the U.S.A. and is permanent. It should be hitting stores in November (not sure of the date yet but will update this post when I find out).

Let's take a look...

J. Cat Beauty White Goddess Highlighter is Pale Girl Approved

There are so many highlighters on the market these days and I don't even want to admit how many I've added to my collection in the past year or so. But as we head into winter and I've stopped self-tanning, my skin has taken on a new shade of pale....and some of my summer highlighters just aren't going to cut it. I've been looking for a lighter highlight that will show up on fair skin tones, but have been resisting the urge to shell out the $38 for Becca's Pearl highlighter. That's when I found J. Cat You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in White Goddess ($8.99). It looked light enough on the website, but did it work for me?

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream Review

it cosmetics eye cream review
Being the beauty nerd/junkie that I am, I've been reading up on skincare since I was a teenager and as a result, I started using eye cream in my early 20's, before I really "needed" it.  I had learned that your eyes are usually the first thing to show the signs of aging on your face, in part because the skin is very thin and delicate there, and also because our eyes show a lot of expression. As a result, I guess you could say I've become a bit of an eye cream junkie!

That's why I was psyched when one of my favorite makeup brands, IT Cosmetics, launched their skincare line at Sephora. The first thing I had my eye on (no pun intended, haha) was the new Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream ($48). If my experience with IT Cosmetics' makeup line has taught me anything, it's that their products actually work, so the thought of them putting their expertise into skincare was really exciting to me.

MORE Maybelline Sneak Peeks!

The Maybelline Spring 2017 sneak peeks just keep coming and for me, these are even more exciting than yesterday's products.

First things first...they're launching a Baby Lips Crayon! According to the Snap I watched (and got these screenshots from) these are supposed to be highly pigmented lip balms. I saw them put one on a model (in the photos above) and they really seem to lay down a ton of color and shine. I can't wait for these to arrive! Also, I don't know if they come in just these three shades or if the range will be larger.
Next up is the Colossal Big Shot Mascara. This one also looked promising as they were putting it on the model...I'm not sure if she already had nice lashes to begin with, but it really seemed to give her lashes a ton of length and volume. I've had pretty good luck with the Colossal formulas in the past so I'm excited for this one! 

Finally, I posted about the new Dream Cushion Compact back in September but I figured this round-up of the Spring line wouldn't be complete without mentioning it. L'oreal and Physicians Formula have already brought cushion foundations to the drugstore earlier this year, so this isn't new at this point, but I'm hoping it'll be worth the wait!

Are you excited for all the new products from Maybelline? Keep your eyes open late in November as they'll likely be hitting the drugstores then!
