Blush Obsession: Tarte's Exposed

The amount of times that I have reached for Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed in the past two months is a bit absurd.  I thought I should blog about my obsession with this blush.

The Color:
The reason that I love this Exposed is that the color is just super flattering on my skin tone.  I think its a great color for olive skinned girls.  I would describe it as a nude color , meaning that it provides a very natural warmth to the face.   I also find that it pairs well with a variety of nude lipsticks.

The Formula:
The way that the product looks in the pan, I thought that it would be very chalky but it is not.  You only need a light hand as the product is pretty pigmented.  The product claims to have 12 hour wear but I haven't tested that out yet.

Dupes for Tarte's Exposed include Mellow Mauve by Elf and Douceur by Nars.

Now I want to get my hands on other Tarte blushes (not that I need more makeup)!   I have my eyes on Glisten and Natural Beauty.

#WCW: Sarah Harris of British Vogue

It's officially #WCW...Women Crush Wednesday.  Every few weeks I'll be posting a WCW, on Wednesdays naturally, of women that I admire.  This week my WCW is Sarah Harris.  Sarah Harris is the Fashion Feature Director over at British Vogue.  Her street style is impeccable.  Most of all, I like that she embraces who she is (read more about her signature gray hair in an interview with Into the Gloss).  Her style is classic and simple, therefore super wearable yet still chic for the everyday girl.  I like that she often opts for jeans and will occasionally, to mix things up, throw on a statement piece like a fringed jacket or a large scarf.  Check out some of my favorite Sarah Harris looks below:    

Who is your WCW?

Tea Time

My favorite drink, hands down, is tea.  Black tea, green tea, white tea...I love every type of tea.  I probably consume a few gallons a week!  For me, drinking tea a good way to ensure that I'm getting all the water I need to stay hydrated and have healthy, glowing skin.  Tea even has some great health and beauty benefits as it's chalk-full of antioxidants.

I prefer to drink my tea iced and I've found that the most efficient and economical way to do so is to get yourself an ice tea maker.  Last year I purchased the Takeya Iced Tea Maker because it had such great reviews, and have not looked back.   I brew the tea at night and then store it in the fridge so I have a pitcher of tea to last me through the day.  Currently my favorite tea to drink is Trader Joe's Black Mango tea.  I've calculated that brewing a pitcher of this tea costs me only 20cents and I get a quart worth of iced tea!  Black Mango iced tea at my favorite coffee shop costs about 3.00!  Are you into tea?  

Black Mango Tea - Yum!
