For Summer 2013, Tarte has released a collection inspired by a synchronized swimming group called the Aqualillies.Included in that collection is a waterproof eye and cheek palette. This is perfect for summer as the heat tends to make makeup melt off!
How gorgeous is the water in that picture?! Makes me want to go swimming!
The palette is fairly large. However, it is ideal for travel!
Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in "Champagne": shimmery champange
Amazonian Clay Mineral Powder Bronzer in "Park Ave Princess": matte cool toned bronzer
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in "Captivating": matte pinky coral
I really like how the blush and bronzer are matte. I find that it is harder to find good, non-chalky matte face products so this palette is very unique in that it includes two great quality matte powders.The highlighter is pretty shimmery, yet there is not a speck of chunky glitter.
Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow:
Hammock: matte deep brown
Bikini: shimmery tan
Barefoot: shimmery yellow-beige
Parasol: shimmery pink-toned white
Sun Deck: matte light warm brown
Poolside: shimmery teal with a slight golden duo chrome
These shadows are buttery, smooth, and very pigmented. Although four of the shades have a far amount of shimmer, they don't have any chunky glitter so there is no problem with fallout! I really like how Tarte included a blue along with the beautiful neutral shades! When I use this palette, I love the look of a pop of color that I get from lining my lower lash line with "poolside."
I love this palette! Each product included is and easily blendable and smooth-feeling. It's an amazing value and limited edition so grab it while you can!
