new makeup purchases

hi everyone! been so busy with starting my new job, but i have been reading all your blogs!

i just wanted to do a quick post about some new makeup items that i purchased this month that i am loving.

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Matte Waterproof Bronzer, $29

described on as a light yellow/golden bronze. this is perfect for my paler winter skin. i actually got this on accident as I was in a rush, and going for the regular bronzer, which has shimmer.

but i'm actually liking this matte version even better than the regular, shimmery one. its also waterproof, which i think is great because it has been raining a lot lately, i don't really have to worry about it too much. i even went to the gym and it still looked great after.

2. Cargo Blush in "Laguna", $26

I really love this blush. its a bright orange color, but it is actually very sheer, so soft and smooth and just melts into your skin. it lasts a long time, but really blends very well with your skin.

I like how this color gives me natural color and really wakes up my skin.

3. Clinique High Impact Mascara in Very Black

I got this as a gift with purchase, and as usual with Clinique Mascaras, I love it! It definitely does what it says. So pretty, my lashes are huge with this on.


  1. Is the matte bronzer one the same colour as the shimmery one. I own the shimmery one and wonder if the matte is maybe a lighter shade?

  2. that bright orange blush looks great! i've never tried anything like it, so it would be cool to get one. :)
