Friday Haul!!! Yipeee! I always enjoy doing beauty haul. You guys might know now that I am obssessed with makeup. I love to shop at the drugstores, retail stores, high end stores and sometime online stores. I prefer to go to the store to get my makeup stuff but sometimes if I can’t get the particular makeup that I wanted to try it on, then I’ll have to get them online.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral bronzer. Came in a nice square box with smooth matte texture. This bronzer doesn’t have shimmer on it. The color pay-off is absolutely great. The texture is pigmented and offer nice bronze contour. I simply used a circular motion when applying this bronzer and the result is fabulous.
This Brazillian Self Tanner is quite a treat. It came together in the same box as the Amazonian Clay Mineral Bronzer. Don’t be surpirsed by the color of the cream which I squeezed out a bit for swatch. Well, the color component is like dark brown/black. After 8 hours since my swatch on my hand, the stain was still there.
Be sure that you only apply them of the body eg. the elbow, knee and ankles. Since fall is almost here I will have to keep this for next summer if I plan to do some self tanning. For those of you who are enjoying tropical season, this would be a nice way to get tan at the comfort of your own home. I included the info I extracted from Tarte for ways to prepare the tanning session.
Info on how to use from Tarte website:
Make sure skin is dry before application. Use Tarte’s unique blending mitt for an easy, no-mess, streak-free tan. Dispense at least a quarter-sized amount of self tanner to the mitt and apply to one body part at a time in long even strokes until the bronze color is uniform. Allow self tanner to absorb for 10 minutes before dressing. Wait at least 8 hours before showering, shaving and sweating to allow a seamless tan to fully develop. Use Brazilliance 1-2 times a week to maintain a gorgeous, natural-looking tan.
The next item that I got is this Sephora Color Bronzer. In it, there were lip gloss and a bronzer with the 8 pretty color eyeshadows. I feel that the eyeshadow are a little bit chalky and lots of glitter or shimmer. For those who loves the bing and gleam these eyeshadow is for you. Out of the 8 colors I only like the dark brown matte which was quite pigmented and I wore it for my review.
Last but not least, is this incredible lip gloss from Smashbox – the Santigolden Age Legendary in Hot Lava. There was another color in All Gold E’vrywhere in sheer copper sparkle but I chose this sheer red/orange instead. Be excited with this wonderful vibrant, glassy-finish gloss. Absolutely, an everyday wear. To be worn alone or with a nice lipstick.
