Tarte blushes ($28): I have just a few of these ::cough cough:: They’re solid performers with the right level of buildable pigmentation that you want in a blush.  My favorites (based on NC15/NC20 skintone) are Exposed–a no-blush blush that subtly defines and goes with everything–and Natural Beauty–a Snow White red (seriously) that gives a natural flush so long as you apply very lightly.  The Color Wheel blush palette ($44) is a crazy good deal.  Each shade is less than half the amount of the regular blush, but IMO variety > product weight when it comes to blushes.  My only critique is that one of the highlighters has chunky shimmers and a lot of the shades are variations of bright pink.  Still worth it.

Give Me Bore: Sephora “Give Me More Lip” Review and Swatches on 3 Skintones…and YouTube!

01 Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip Review 2015

When Renee visited me a few weeks ago, she brought along a new toy: the Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip “lip wardrobe” ($59).  It’s a limited edition/holiday 2015 release containing 15 lip colors (4 full size) ranging in colors, formulas, and finishes: from tinted balms to matte liquid lipsticks and from plumping glosses to vampy creams.

We decided to swatch them with Indya (Bella Noir Beauty) so that you could see how they looked on our fair, medium, and dark skin tones.  We’re all warm-toned, but I’m NC15, Renee is Not Chanel 35, and Indya is NC50.

Here’s a 2-minute vid where we model (using that word very liberally) every single color.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention
