Tarte Glow Beyond

So I recently checked my email to find the above in an email from Sephora. I've been pretty near 500 points for a while now, and I've just been waiting for the right reward to cash them in. I've had my eye on the Tarte bronzers lately, so I knew this was it.

Over the next few days I'll be testing out the products and then I'll let you know what I think. I was just so excited that I had to share.

Shopping Trip!

Sorry it's been a while guys! Life's been a bit hectic. I've been at my parents' house for a few days, and the best part of that is that I get to see two of my favourite people, Lauren and Robyn! I've mentioned Lauren before, she runs Lipstick + Lacquer, and yesterday we went to Toronto for the day.

It's always fun to go makeup shopping with a fellow enthusiast, someone who will get emotional with you about how soft a blush is and how well it blends (we spent a lot of time being impressed at the Illamasqua counter)

I managed to contain myself to a certain extent, but I still picked up a few things.

(sorry about the wrinkly sheet!)

Ice Cream Wristlet: Betsey Johnson (@ Collacutt on sale + last one!)
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny (@ Rexall)
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB in Light Sheer Tint (@ Rexall) 
KIT Face Contour Brush (@ Rexall) 
Colour Crush Lipstick in Coral Cutie (@ The Body Shop 50% off!)
Colour Crush Eye Shadow in Coconuts About You (@ The Body Shop 50% off!)
Regal Bib Necklace (their name not mine, I call it the boob crown) (@Forever 21)

Okay so I've been eyeing the wristlet for a while now. It's basically my exact aesthetic, and it was suuuuper on sale, so I had to get it right? My only problem is that it's small. Like really, really small. The cone is the part that opens up, there is no storage space in the ice cream, so my phone only just fits, and it's a bit of a squeeze. And I have a small phone. But it's gonna be great for the wedding shower I'm going to next weekend, and its sooo cute. So I still love it. 

As for the makeup, I used all of it today. I'm going to see The Fault in Our Stars with Lauren and Robyn, so I figured I wouldn't go too heavy on the eye makeup, so I won't risk crying it off. 

Other items included in this look:

NYX Kohl Brow Pencil in 922 Dark Brown
Benefit Blush in Coralista 
Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer in Light 18
Covergirl Trublend Pressed Powder in Translucent Fair

Now I'm off to bake something for a movie snack!
