Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette

If it wasn’t apparent by the abundance of sneak peeks, but we are in the throes of fall color collections and releases. July you say? Well, they come a little earlier everywhere and maybe by 2020, we’ll be looking at fall in April :) The best thing I can do for you is providing early swatches while I work on the testing and writing portion of the review process. (Testing takes the longest, followed by finding dupes, in case you were curious.) For total clarity, I purchased the Becca and Tarte palettes, while bareMinerals sent theirs as a press sample.

Palettes in this post:

  1. bareMinerals Work, Weekend, Wow Eyeshadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.)
  2. Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette ($40.00 for 0.20 oz.)
  3. Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette ($38.00 for 0.54 oz.)

Sneak Peek: Becca Mineral Blushes Photos & Swatches

Becca Mineral Blushes
(Click to Enlarge)

Here are eight shades of Becca Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) that I bought when I spotted them on Sephora this past week. There is a ninth blush, Damselfly that has been out forever, but it is out of stock and I’m not certain when or if it will be coming back into stock… which I’ve apparently reviewed before (in 2012), so I’ll try to see if I still have it and redo swatches.

From what I can tell, the range has gone through a slight packaging and labeling update, but the ingredients don’t seem to have changed from existing shades when compared against the list I have from 2012. Nightingale, Hyacinth, and Lantana are brand new, though! I hope to review these over time, but for now, enjoy these swatches!

It’s infused with light-reflecting pearls that beautifully catch the light, allowing your favorite features to pop. Just apply to targeted areas, or simply sweep it up on the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose for quick, radiant perfection.
