Tarte Air brush Foundation and Air kabuki brush review

YES Tarte has Finally launched in UK!Its not available on qvc.

The amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation is a fairly new launch by tarte ,tarte is supposed to be cruelty free ,parabens and mineral oil free and i am amazed by this product.

It comes in a pot with a sifter which lets the product out and the lid had a stopper to prevent it from getting all over (intelligent i must say) love the packaging.The product itself is very light and finely milled and has light reflecting particles which apparently helps out in filling out pores and fine lines and blurs them away.

The best way to put on this foundation is the airbuki bamboo powder foundation brush it comes with and oh my word!this is one of the best kabuki brushes ever,it soft and dense and the bristles and very precise ,enough to give you a flawless finish and the product goes on like a dream with this brush.It fits perfectly into the sifter and takes a good amount of product.

I have been using this foundation regularly since i got it and i love it for everyday use and also for special occasions,my skin tends to get oily in few areas by the end of the day but with this one i am surprised i dint have to blot even one and i looked radiant all day.But one thing which i want to mention which is important is the colour shades they come in good number of shades but they are a bit darker than they appear.I got a medium neutral and its a bit dark for me and would be suitable in summer so i will have to repurchase a lighter shade but i love the finish it gives.

Overall a beautiful product and would definately go in my permanent foundation stash.It retails at 34£ 

Have any one of you tried it yet?

Topic Tuesday The Perfect RED LIPS # 3

Hey guys long time no see but m back now will make a separate  post on where i've been but for now lets take a dip into the bright world of red lips!As mentioned in the post of perfect pink lips couple of posts back if you havent already checked out i'll link it here  I LOVE A RED LIP! I dunt know what it is that i always go into a beauty section swatch a different colour put it in my basket and while i continue to browse i pick a new shade of red and end up leaving the one i picked initially of different color and bring home the love of my lets get going..

MAC Russian Red - Everyone knows about this red shade. The first time i got this was about two years ago and i fell in love with it immediately.It such a beautiful matte colour with blue undertones.It stays put all day long and does not dry out my lips.I think it would suit all skin tones i am of a tan colour and i think it looks beautiful.
Sephora Lip Cream Stain (Always red) - I heard about this from Amelia liana in one of her videos(Love her videos btw) and she described this to be better than the hourglass liquid lipsticks which led this to the top of my shopping list from sephora when i visited the states and oh wow i was amazed by its taying power,it sets as a matte colour and does not budge the whole day and i love the shade selection in this line and it is very affordable at 13$ ,its available online and here

Rimmel Moisture renew lipstick (`Mayfair Lady)- A more affordable option from the drugstore and it had to be this shade quiet similar to russian red but has a glossy finish and i found this to be very slippery and moves around a bit but if used with a liner underneath and applied with a brush i think it does the job then.It retails at 6.49£.

Rimmel Moisture renew liptick(In Love with ginger)- Staying in the drugstore theme this is another rimmel lipstick which blows me away every time i wear it this is another recommendation by amelia liana (THANKS Amelia love this shade) this one is a great shade if you are new to orange lips ,a very vibrant  coral/red shade again very affordable asos always have discount going on cosmetics here

Flormar long wearing lipstick (L13) - This is a red lip from turkish brand i had mentioned this before in one of my favourites ,Its quiet similar to Mac's Russian red with blue undertones and suits all skin tones.I picked this up when i was away in turkey for a holiday last year.

Mac Lady Danger - Ending with an all time beauty lover favourite gorgeous lady danger,i heard about this from lisa eldridge and had to get this,it looked amazing on her love to wear this shade in spring/summer day time ,saw essiebutton wear it a couple of days ago and she looked stunning,mac again i would say is cheaper to buy in the states 16$ and we pay 15£ here in the uk.

I'd love to hear about your favourite red lips and get some new suggestions!

Beauty Wishlist # 1

With 2014 starting and come february new products have hit the market with the spring launches i've decided to make my beauty wish list a combination of skincare and make and a few not so new products which have been on the market for a while and i have my eyes peeled on lets get rolling...

  • Tarte amazonian clay 12 hour blush - omg i've heard soo many bloggers and youtubers go crazy over this blush..i am waiting for tarte to come to uk .There is news that qvc will be stocking it up,lets wait for it to come up.They are priced at 26$ in states and are available at sephora
  • MAc pre and prime - It is supposed to to be a highlighter pen similar to the ysl touche eclat and it seems really good for areas where you need highlighting i normally use my benefit fake up concealer which acts as a highlighter for me which i love since i tried alot of concealers and most of them creased under eye and the benefit one was the only one which did'nt crease but there is soo much hype around this one that i want to give it a go.
  • Clinique take the day off cleansing balm-This one has been on my list ever since i saw amodelrecomends talk about it in her blogpost..i absolutely adore her and learnt alot from her skincare videos she does,she'z lovely do check her out here.though i am very happy with my emma hardie at the moment i am definatley looking for something cheaper since this one is 21£ which saves a full 14£ compare to eh one i am going to give it a try i like to buy clinique products from boots also since they add up to my advantage card points.
  • Lollitint from benefit-Benefit products are very cute and girly i am a big fan of the other tints benefit has benetint and posie tint are the ones i see myself reaching out for most.Orchid is the colour of 2014 and this orchid coloured blush has sucked me in ,boots has a free gift offer with benefit purchase
  • Elizebeth arden flawless finish perfectly nude foundation-I've never tried this brand before,i find it really hard to match a foundation and most the brands either go a bit dark or a bit light so i end up mixing two to get my shade.i am on a look fora new foundation and i definitely have my eyes on this one not cheap as it come at 28£ and is currently exclusive to debenhams
  • Bourjois rice smoothing and setting powder-It has been said to be similar to the hourglass ambient powder by quiet a few people and that has definitely added it to my wish list since i coudnt get the ambient palette anywhere(since i was late and it was solt out).i as  definatley going to give this one a go.Its stocked on asos 
  • Nars lip crayon-Last year has seen almost every other brand come out with these lip crayons and nars is no different on this i love their products and this lip crayon in damned is calling me out to get one ever since i saw it in amelia from lianabeauty's video it looked soo pretty and i love my red everyone knows that so i thought this colour would be perfect to take a plunge into the pinkish-mauve shades.
What is one your beauty wish list?

Rimmel Moisture renew lipstick-Mayfair Red lady

A red lip is what i love to wear and i cant get enough of red lipsticks.I was browsing through the rimmel section in boots the other day and my eyes fell on the moisture renew inlove with ginger..I never got to buy this range after they were reformulated which means it now has ingredients like  collagen,polypeptides & hyaluronic acid so i decided to pick it but when i tried it in store i thought it was too orange and it would be more suitable for someone with pale skin.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

The first time i heard about this cult product was from Lisa eldridge,she seemed to have loved it and mentioned it in couple of her videos and i seem to add most of the things she mentions to my beauty wishlist and tend to buy it at some point of time not only because i love her but because i trust what she says she knows what she'z talking about and i absolutely adore her.The only reason why i restrained from buying this product for soo long was its price,32£ for a facial spray mist.hmmm i'm not sure if its worth it.Recently it was on an offer for 25£ on lookfantastic so i decided to give it a try.

 Facial hair removal..

hey guys today its all about the facial hair!yes we've all got it.

This is something we all have and most of them prefer not to talk about it.I am quiet weary of waxing on my face i cant bare to go through the pain even though it lasts for a short time and you are all clear for at least a couple of days.
