If you're a Gleek like me (a fan of the show Glee) then you obvi saw the episode with the synchronized swimmers, the Aqualillies?!?!?!
Anywho - Tarte Cosmetics was so inspired by them, that they created a whole collection of 100% waterproof cosmetics for the retro swim-cap wearers in all of us!!!
Check out the whole collection at Ulta, coming next week!
The collection is ADORABLE (how will I live without that cosmetic bag?)
The "Lights, Camera, Splashes" Mascara is a staple item in the Tarte line, but was a perfect throw in with this collection for sure! It's def one of my top waterproof mascara picks! (always $19)
The Amazonian Clay finishing powder is also a key item (I just blogged about it this week) and it was also added in here with limited edition packaging (still $29)
Clearly, the key item here is the palette, which is so eye catching!
I honed right on on the bronzer and blush, which have major staying power because of the amazonian clay!
and the shadows can create SO many looks:
Hold on, let me put on my shower cap (perfect for protecting a great blow out!)
There is only one super long wearing lipstick shade in the collection, and that's because it is a universally flattering coral-red that makes your skin look great and teeth look white and it STAYS ALL DAY!
Next we look at the glosses, infused with Maracuja Oil
Truthfully, glosses aren't my thing. They are very pretty, and hydrating. But they don't hold up next to that amazing lipstick!
Next, we take a look at the ultra-waterproof eyeliners, AND the awesome applicator brush that comes with it! As if the turquoise color of the brush wasn't enough, its actually totally functional, because the angle allows you more precision during application!
There are two liner shades, the deep inky black that is perfect for every summer day, swimming or not. Then there is the unique blue/green shade that is synonymous with the packaging of the collection itself:
Check out the two distinct looks below, I am loving them!
If you're only able to grab one this from the collection - grab the waterproof eyeliner! You'll get tons of use out of it and you'll also nab a great applicator brush for only $22
If you can treat yourself to one more item, make it the lipstick - I LOVE it!
Check out some of the Aqualillies modelling the collection and get inspired to re-create their looks!! Happy Swimming!!!!!
