Think PinkSaturday, May 3, 2014
Before we begin, please excuse the lions mane that I appear to be sporting in these pictures - I need a trip to the hairdressers plus a deep conditioning mask, stat. 'Fro aside, let's take a look at what I'm actually supposed to be talking about - two of my favourite new additions and the perfect spring look they combine to make. Yeah baby, I'm talking matchy-matchy. Pink lips and cheeks? You must be having a laugh! Well, good sir (or madam!) I can assure you that I most certainly am not - this bubblegum pink combo has become one of my favourite go-to looks since I acquired said products about a month ago.
The products in question are the gorgeous Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in the shade 'Pink Shock', and the newly released Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in 'Flush'. They share the same beautiful hue that practically forces you to feel all Spring-y and flowery inside. Ah, you can just smell the rosebuds, can't you? I've never been much of a lipgloss girl, but after hearing Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup rave about this line for so long (and I take most of what she says as bible), I just had to try one out for myself. Once again, the queen of beauty was absolutely spot on - so much so that we've taken the first big step in our relationship, and this baby now lives in my bag. Non-sticky, pigmented and super hydrating? What more could a girl ask for in a gloss?
The other half to this match made in heaven is the one of the famous Tarte blushes, and after so long, I can now see why they are, and have always been, so hyped up. Boy are these good! Buttery smooth texture, insane staying powder and cute shades to boot - I'm definitely a happy camper! I got this from QVC, but they seem to be out of stock at the moment - so let's hope they get their act together soon so we can all get our hands on a few more! I tend to apply this with the Tarte blush brush that I received with the blush - how fancy - and it applies just the right amount to give you that ever-so-desired flushed look. These two plus a touch of concealer, a smidgen of mascara and a quick comb through the brows and you're good to go.
How do you feel about matching makeup? Yay or nay? If so, what are your favourite combos?
