Anyone else have the feels for Spring!!?  The sunshine-y weather today is the first day in a while that actually feels like Spring might be right around the mountain! Yay!  Felt as if it would be a good time to post my review of Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom palette for you guys!

Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom Palette | Review & GRWM
Upon opening the palette I was greeted with the wafting aroma of chocolate! Ummm major brownie points!! It smells identical to my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes!  Who knew!?!!

IMG_0518 2.jpg
Tarte’s Tartlette In Bloom palette is THE perfect palette for Spring!
That means that I, of course, had to give it a taste…and, yep, the shadows tasted sweet like cocoa! lol.

Who knew that Tarte’s 12-pan palette of decadence would smell like chocolate!?!!!
I love that this palette is equipped for any kind of natural eye look, as well as shadows suitable for smokey eye looks, like Leader, Activist, & Smokeshow.

Included in Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom Palette are 3 shades perfect for a smokey eye: Leader, Activist, & Smokeshow
A woman never knows what she’s up against, so it’s best to be prepared for ANY makeup look 🙂  This palette mos def has you covered!

Included are 3 satin shades, namely, Funny Girl, a gorgeous champagne shade…..

Funny girl is one of the 3 satin shades in the Tartelette In Bloom palette.  It is the perfect inner eye and brow bone highlight.
…..FIRECRACKER….a coppery bronze,

Firecracker is a gorgeous coppery bronze satin shade that will look fierce as a center of the lid highlight!
and Rocker, a taupe-y silver shade.

IMG_0541.jpg
Rocker, a taupe-y silver shade, is my fave of the 3 satin shades included in the Tartlette In Bloom palette.
Of the three satin shades, Rocker, the taupe-y silver shade, didn’t swatch as buttery, soft, & pigmented as the other two shades. But, nonetheless, it is still pigmented, buttery, beautiful, & my fave of the satin shades :). The two matte shades, Jetsetter & Smokeshow, were the least buttery & blendable of all the shades in the palette.  After using Jetsetter today in a look, it blended out to perfection, so maybe I’m just not the best swatcher!  In my GRWM vid (above), Smokeshow applied a bit patchy on one of my eyes, & took a bit of work getting it blended out on the other.  This makes it difficult to denote if the patchiness is from the shadow, the brush, or the primer.

Funny girl is the best champagne shade for inner eye & brow bone highlighting!  I could seriously stare at all 3 of the satin shades for like ever.

All in all, I LOVE this palette.  I will get a ton of use out of it, and highly recommend it if you are a neutrals girl!  Of all the shades, Rocker, Leader, Rebel, & Funny Girl are my faves!  Hope you enjoyed this review!! Muahhhhhh!!! xoxoxo ❤ ❤ ~Kelle

February Favorites!

Happy weekend, loves!  My February Favorites are up early for once! ;)))  I’ll begin with my most coveted shadow of the month: Rimmel’s “Millionaire” single eyeshadow.  You will be a millionaire if you purchase shades as inexpensive as this one! This $2 shadow from the drugstore has been my most worn shade this month.      img_7314

I love how it is a your skin tone but better type of shade. It is a taupe shade that has a slight pinky mauve undertone and/or duochrome quality to it. When worn at night it looks fierce when paired with dark liner and a darker shade in the crease for a 60’s vibe.

Rimmel Single Shadow, Shade: Millionaire

This shade also reminds me a lot of Too Faced’s Puppy Love from the Love palette.  The only major difference between them is that Too Faced Puppy Love shade is a little more pigmented and a smidge darker.  Get that gleam, girl.

I’ve also been loving Laura Geller’s Bronzing & Highlighting palette, in the shade: Porcelain/Fair.  It is a baked powder formulation, that is soft & smooth to the touch, & blends onto the skin like a dream.

img_0483

In the palette are 3 bronzing/highlighting shades that can be worn individually, you can create combos,

or swirl them into one shade.

If you are wanting something a bit more affordable, Physician’s Formula’s Butter Bronzer, in the shade, Bronzer, is a near perfect dupe for the Laura Geller Bronzer.

img_0507
A great dupe for Laura Geller’s Bronzing/Highlighting Palette is Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in the Shade: Bronzer

When I swirl all three of Laura Geller’s shades into one shade, I honestly can’t tell it apart from the Butter bronzer on my skin.  Both bronzers look incredible on fair skin tones.

I’m a big believer that if you take care of your skin with great skincare products, then the less makeup you have to wear.  Doll Face Beauty’s Pore Perfection Mineral Mask, Invigorate Cleanser, & Clarify Balancing Tonic have been the highlights of my skincare routine in February.  Click here for my recent review & blog on Doll Face Beauty‘s gorgeous line.

When it comes to moisturizing my skin during the day, I have been loving La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer.  This has been my pre-makeup moisturizer on the days I wear makeup.  Love pairing it with my Garnier BB Cream.

IMG_7327.jpg

Unfortunately, this moisturizer doesn’t include the ingredients on the back.  This is kind of a bummer.

My favorite body lotion has been Andalou Naturals Mandarin Vanilla. It smells divine.  If you have ever had an orange cream-sicle pop, it smells exactly like them.

This lotion has all sorts of yummy ingredients for your skin.  I’ve even used it on my face with no problemos.

Lately, it has been on the colder side in LA which can leave my hands feeling dry.  I’ve been loving Institut Karité Paris Rose Shea Hand Cream.  It leaves my hands feeling super soft.

I try out A LOT of facial oils.  Oils are my preferred skin moisture method at night.  I’ve been loving Sculpt’s Coconut Avocado Face & Body Glow Moisturizing oil.  I apply it to my face before bed.  This oil is just the right amount of oil, and not too thick of a consistency. It has been replacing my bottle of kitchen avocado oil that I normally slather on my face lol.  The smell makes me want to eat it. LOVE IT.

It contains just a handful of healthy ingredients.  Paraben free and cruelty free.

Another facial oil I have been loving is Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir.  If you are in to aromatherapy, this oil smells of lavender.

IMG_7468.jpg
Physician’s Formual Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir | February Favorites

It comes with a dropper to dispense a precise amount of oil.  This oil is a little too thick for me to wear before makeup.  So I have been wearing it at night and have been loving it.  Ahhhhhh the aroma of lavender.

On the days when I throw my hair into a quick ponytail, I spritz my hair down with Toni & Guy’s Creative Style Spray Wax.  It is great for texturing the ends of my hair, as well.  A wax in the form of a spray.  Love that.

I’ve definitely had the feels for Spring.  I have been loving the bright butterflies on my iphone case.  You can find this one and many other styles at the Dollar Tree for $1.  That’s, right, only $1!  They have a great assortment to choose from for all different brands of phones.

After a day of high heels, I have been loving my Tieks By Gavrieli ballet flats.  These are the most comfortable flats I have ever worn.  I like to pair them with a t-shirt, skinnies, & some bright lipstick on days where comfort is key.  I modeled for Tieks a few years ago, and I have been in love with them ever since.  Finding a good pair of flats can sometimes be difficult.  These have bounce, hug my foot, and bend when I walk.

Tieks By Gavrieli Cheetah Print Ballet Flats

They have colors, prints, & textures in every color and style under the rainbow and sun.  So finding a pair to reflect your personality is a sinch.  I love the Tiffany’s turquoise colored sole with the cheetah print.  Style plus comfort.

Perfection is Boring! | OOTW | Fashion Film

TGIF, my lovelies!! I am so excited about sharing this video with you! You know you must enjoy what you do, when you spend 15 hours editing a 6 minute fashion film! LOL.  Spring is just about here and Los Angeles is preparing for the biggest storm it has seen in 6 or so years.  That said, sweater weather it is!  The sweater in this video is a vintage zip up sweater.  I found it at a thrift store here in LA,

and fell hard for it.  So cozy for rainy days, lyric writing, and hot cocoa.  The lace floral top is by Millau and the cutoff jean shorts are by Joe’s jeans.  The leather gladiators are by Bamboo and go great with shorts and boho dresses.  Love that they are nude in color too because they make your legs look sooooo long.  Illusions, baby, illusions!  Who else is a sucker for rose gold?!  The rose gold/gold two-tone belt by Marciano gets a lot of love for sure.  Love wearing it with jeans and tees.  The buddha necklace was a spiritual find on my last modeling trip.  It can be doubled up or worn as a really long necklace.  Love the sunshine color of its beads.  Hope you guys enjoy this look.  I had so much fun putting this film together for you, darlings!!!  Enjoy & have a rockin weekend!! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle

Anastasia Cream Contour Palette Review & Contouring Tips!

Greetings!  Version 2In my latest video, I review Anastasia’s Contour Cream Kit and also give you some of my cream contouring tips.  When using cream contour products, I prefer using deep cream contour shades.  Even on fair skin tones like mine, I think deep shades can provide the most natural looking contour when sheered out onto the skin.  There are 4 contour palettes in the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit line, and in this video I review the “Deep” palette. It comes with six shades.  The top row of shades is fantastic for mixing into the darker shades in the bottom row, to achieve the perfect natural bronze shade for any eye/cheek look.  It took me three washes with soap and water to remove the swatches.img_9314 This is great news. Many powder bronzes just wipe right off.  Even without having to set the shades with a powder, the longevity of these Anastasia cream contour shades is remarkable: with over 8 hours of wear without budging!  This palette is also fantastic if you have dry skin like I do, because powders can just cause more dryness.  My favorite way to apply the shades is with my Elf stipple brush, and then blending over that with a synthetic BH Cosmetics face brush. Overall, I think what makes the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit such an outstanding palette is that the shades don’t look super creamy/sheen-y when applied, as you can see in the swatches.  They look like super pigmented bronzers with the blendability of a cream. Suitable for all skin tones too!  I haven’t found cream contour shades that provide this natural of a contour in a while!   Happy Sunday! XO ~KelleIMG_9245.jpgIMG_9253.jpgimg_9266-2
