So, according to The District, Spring has been cancelled due to budget cuts and we’ve vaulted right into summer. With summer comes…SUN. Uh, yeah – revolutionary, I know. I’ve only recently realized that you should shift your makeup look based on the season (florals? for spring? groundbreaking.) so with that being said I swung into MAC and made some bad decisions.

But actually, it was the BEST decision because I got some beautiful goodies to add to my usually Sephora-stocked bag and this baby is just the bee’s knees. Cruising into MAC an artist very helpfully (…do they work on commission?) helped me to a chair to test out some summer looks including new foundation, bronzer, powder and this BLUSH. Now, let’s chat about it.

The Beauty:

The mascara world is a wide, spidery, scary place. There are so many different options depending on what you want for your lashes (and your wallet). I try to explore a wide range of them so that YOU don’t have to. As I was prepping more posts, I found myself lucky to have scooped up a Tarte goodie box from Sephora and this little gem was nestled inside of it.

First, I’m not super into packaging or the ~aesthetic~ of an actual product but this little baby is just so cool. Plus it’s PURPLE. And purple is my favorite color.

Second, the brush reminds me a bit of Dior’s Diorshow Black Out mascara (and if you know me at ALL you know that’s my go-to product). So already there’s a plus in the Tarte win-column. Now, let’s do it to it.

#tbt: BB Battle of the Beauty

Since I have been too busy at work and life to have a chance to post a NEW post, I am throwing it back to the first week of The Lease waaaaay back in May 2014 since you likely missed it.

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting a comprehensive guide on BB Creams as I have since tried at least half a dozen ranging in price and product happiness. Keep an eye out for it!
