Spring Makeup Edit: Mac Cut A Caper Lipstick

It seems like the whole blogging community has been going a little "cray" over Tarte products recently. Though it may look like I've just jumped on the Tarte bandwagon, I've actually had a few of their products for over a year. Thanks to all the hoopla I decided to fish out a few things and get re-acquainted!

Mac "Cut A Caper" Lipstick

Mac "Cut A Caper" Lipstick (limited edition)

I had completely forgotten how amazing this foundation is, it blends seamlessly, matches me perfectly and gives a good amount of coverage. I don't know about the 12 hour claim, but it stayed around for quite a while. As for the blush I honestly don't know why I stopped using it because it's absolutely stunning! it's so pigmented, the perfect spring pick me up that gives your skin a beautiful glow.

 Sticking with my coral theme, I've been loving this Mac/Maybelline lip combination. It's fresh and understated while still giving a pop of colour, it's the quintessential "everyday" lip combo!

Have you been re-acquainted with some favourite products lately? What are your favourite must have Tarte products, let me know.

    1. They are such fab quality their blushes in particular, they are so pigmented ;)

  3. The Tarte Clay Foundation is on my wishlist. I almost purchased it from QVC on the launch date, but I own so many foundations I really need to use a few up first!

    1. It's a really lovely foundation I definitely recommend it, though I'm the same I should probably use some up before I buy anymore ;)

  4. I'm getting sucked into the hype, they look great x

    1. Hype always gets me too, it's the blogger influence :)

  5. Beautiful! Too bad the lipstick is limited edition, I totally fell for it :( X
