Makeup

I am NO expert when it comes to makeup or hair but I can get a little excited about it!  Especially when I find something or try a style that actually works!
So Saturday during my lovely and quiet shopping time with only Kinslie in toe Brian said I could get some makeup that I had been asking for for quite a while.  So I went to Sephora and came home with...

Bare Minerals starter kit and Tarte sample set.  Makeup brush cleaner and two samples for waiting in line.  Cool!!  I returned the brush cleaner because I was told you could use mild face was instead.  Since I've never cleaned my brushes before anything will be better than nothing.


The Bare Minerals kit came with custom color foundation powder, warmth powder and mineral veil finishing powder.  Prime Time, foundation primer and brushes for each powder.  I'm liking it so far but I'm not super picky!

I just happened to ask a makeup lady in the store about the Bare Minerals who was a rep for Tarte.  I've never even heard of it before but now i know it's a natural line that is designed to be a little more exciting than all the others.  I bought the set just to get the Amazonian clay eyeliner -brown-.  It actually has clay from the Amazon River in it.  It's not liquid but it's not solid like a pencil either.  You put it on with a brush.  It's just cool.  Along with it there was a natural cheek stain -flush-.  I really wasn't sure about this one.  It's the texture of chapstick so I just wasn't sure how it would go on.  But it actually blends in nice and soft.  The lights, camera, lashes mascara is pretty great.  And then LipSurgence lip tint -enchanted- is also really neat.  It's very smooth and lasts a long time.

I also picked up an angled eye shadow brush because I had a gift card left over for Bloomingdale's.  And I love it!   And I really love free stuff!  : ) 

So needless to say I have been having a bit of fun with my makeup the last few days!  What is your favorite makeup product?

I'm so glad to know you like it. I've been thinking about trying it for a while but did't compare with anything else.
