REVIEW:



Amazonian Clay foundation- This is a nice, matte, foundation with medium to full coverage depending on the method of application. It is important to prep skin before using this foundation as it may emphasize any imperfections such as dryness or flakes. I would start with exfoliation and some great moisturizer, followed by a primer if you have any problems with this foundation caking or settling. Another tip is that you really need to buff this foundation in much like a mineral foundation for the best result. As with most products, less is more. If you are like me a prefer a more glowy finish, this product works really well mixed with the Maracuja foundation from Tarte. I prefer them mixed versus each one individual.


 


 


Amazonian Clay blush in Fearless- This is a nice warm pink with gold shimmer. The shimmer does not show up on the skin. If you like the blush formula already, this is a nice addition to your collection. These blushes are rich in pigmentation and long lasting.


 




 



Amazonian Butter lipstick in Plummy Rose- This is a nice formula for those who prefer a more sheer finish to their lipstick without looking overly glossy. It has a nice slip on the lips and provides some moisture, but I do find that it tends to dry down and lose the glossiness. This shade is a nice plummy nude on me.





Lights, Camera, Flashes mascara- This formula is wetter and glossier than the other Tarte mascara's and hardest to remove. If you work slowly, you can achieve drama with this formula and it is very long lasting. I had no problems with clumping or flaking.





Brow Architect- First, I love the highlighter in this pencil. It is my favorite thing in the whole kit. It is not white, but more like a buttery off-white, and matte. The perfect highlight color. The pencil on the other hand is not my favorite. I cannot get the definition I need with this pencil and it is rather hard to get it to look natural. I much prefer the brow mousse from Tarte. If you have thin brows like me, this may not be the product for you.



The brush- Luxurious, soft, dense. Love!

This kit also comes with a nice bag with a zipper. (I didn't show it in the video.) There is also a bonus sample of their self tanner!





The finished look is one of simplicity. This kit will give you the look of natural beauty with a flush of color, prefect for an everyday look all year long. This kit doesn't scream a particular season, but rather gives you a look that can be worn anywhere and anytime.

Will you be picking this up?
