Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation


I love the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer - what beauty blogger doesn't. It's the most raved about concealer ever. So, when I found that Tarte Cosmetics were launching a foundation, I was so so excited! 

However, as soon as they launched with only 18 shades, the negativity put me off from buying it for a while. 18 shades is such a limited number, especially when every other brand is creating more than 30 shades. I felt disappointed that the brand neglected to create a product that catered for all skin tones. 

It's quite surprising and sad as there are so many customers missing out. Although Tarte has revealed they are releasing more shades, we are yet to see the proof in the pudding. 

I'm not one to get pulled into drama, which is why I decided not to be influenced by others opinions. I made the decision to buy the foundation to review it.



Review 
The packaging is great. Really easy to apply - the applicator is amazing. It looks like a larger version of the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. 

In my honest opinion, this is a great foundation. It's the perfect shade for me. Long wearing, easily blend-able and soaks into the skin well. You can create both a light and full coverage look. The foundation is very build-able but not cakey on your skin, providing a seamless natural complexion.

It doesn't work well with the Shape Tape concealer in my opinion, I found that it creased easily underneath my eyes creating an extremely unflattering look. A part from that, I love it and would definitely recommend it. Lets just hope they create more shades.

NYX Cosmetics Worth The Hype Mascara

I am the fussiest person on the planet when it comes to mascaras. I love my natural lashes and I want a mascara that will help to emphasise them. When I received this mascara from Nyx Cosmetics - thank you Nyx - I was super intrigued to find out whether it was actually worth the hype. 

Lets face it, so may brands over promise and never deliver. So I wasn't sure what to expect. I've been testing this out for a few weeks now and I have to say, it ticks all the boxes for me. 

The applicator is great for combing through my lashes, there's no clumping and it provides a light coverage that you can build on to lift the lashes up. 

It's definitely lengthening which is great. It's a seamless application and so comfortable to wear as well. When a mascara is too heavy on my lashes I have a horrible habit of picking it off. I haven't done that with this one - my lashes are thankful. 

This has been my go-to mascara for the past two weeks. I just haven't wanted to use another. What's great is that this is only £9 so extremely affordable and well worth the money. I will be purchasing another when this one runs out. 


I also love how easy it is to remove. There's nothing worse than a stubborn mascara that leaves you with panda eyes. You know they ones ladies! Urgh. 

All in all, I would 100% recommend this product and I hope you find my review useful!
