Tarte's- Rainforest of the sea water foundation ~ Lets talk about this sample

Ladies 



I got a sample of the Tarte Rainforest of the sea water foundation in Fair/light. Let me tell you I know what I'm purchasing after I'm finished my UD-Naked skin. I personaly got this to see how I'd like it and to see what the rave was about it specially when our Sephora had a hard time keeping it in stalk. Out of Tarte's collection I've only tried their BB cream before getting my hands on some more samples from them. Let me tell you I'll be going to their products more, this foundation is amazing. I perosnaly look into a foundation that will cover my un-even skin tone but is light enough that it wont give me that foundation feeling. Your thinking why Katie don't you just use a BB cream, well I like to have that little more coverage. I think I personally will get me the full size bottle once I'm done my UD-Naked skin.

Pros' 

- Blends into your skin so beautyifully with a brush or a beauty blender.
- Very light weight but still has enough coverage to cover all my issues, and pimples that may rise.
- Nice shade range 20 shades to this collection
- Light coverage with one application, I may do another layer depending on how my skin is acting with being redness.
- Cruelty Free
- Works well with primer


Con's 

- The glass bottle with the dropper, think this is just a personal thing. I wish it was in a pump format and or squeeze bottle.

Sample look into - Kat Von D lock it foundation

Ladies 

Even though I'm not a full face foundation kinda gal, there was something about this foundation I needed to check out regardless. So the last time I was in Sephora decided to get a sample of it. Let me tell you the shade selection it's very yellow under-toned foundation. You defiantly need help from Sephora girls and color matching got so lost trying to do it myself. Like this stuff is heavy duty when I first tried it, I did 2 dots on my face and that did my whole face and onto my neck with out adding or extra. So if you're looking for a full coverage foundation with out being cakey and not drying, you got to check out this one or pick up a sample like I did. If I was looking for a full coverage foundation, I would be buying this one it's so wonderful. I like how I just needed one dot to do my whole entire face/neck. I didn't need to go back over top with a little more product, but you can also blend this out to a medium coverage if desired.

Pro's 

- 30 shade range plus a primer
- Cruelty Free
- Medium to full coverage
- Pump to bottle easy to get produt out
- Very easy to blend out I used a damp Beauty Blender
-  No Parabens
- No Sulfates
-  No Phthalates
- 24 hr wear

Con's 

- So many shades and undertones got overwhelming had to get Sephora staff to help me choose a shade.

Pacifica Coconut Blush

Ladies


Got this in my last month's Ipsy bag and out of all the products I got, this was the biggest one I so happy on getting. Finally something from Pacifica a brand that I've heard so many great things about especially with my transition to being Cruelty-Free beauty. So far reading posts and reviews this brand seems to be on top, with being Cruelty Free makeup. Collection that everyone seems to love. I'm so impressed with how this performs and the 2 shades that you get, also its long lasting with a buildable coverage. The shades also very buildable you can add as little or build it up, to what ever you wish to have your blush at.

Do you have a favourite cruelty free/vegan company you like using ? 

Pro's 

- Gluten free
- 100 % Vegan
- Cruelty Free
- Recyclable packaging plus the front packaging is very cute!
- Blends very well very buildable
- 2-1 products  light apricot and a dusty rose shade
- Large pan sizes
- Sturdy packaging with mirror on the back
- Looks great on light-medium skin tones.

Con's

- If you don't like soft shadows you won't like these you get a little kickback with them.
- Pacifica line is a little hard to find in stores I have to go to one health store to find a good selection. It's a little pricey to keep ordering it online.
