White Eyeliners: Swatches, Dupes, and Comparisons

In my stash, I had four matte white eyeliners and three shimmery/metallic white eyeliners, and I’ve compared them in this post.  The finding? The matte white eyeliners are completely dupes of each other across all four shades, while the metallic white eyeliners are nearly dupes of each other, with one being minutely less bright.  I like using white eyeliner to lighten other colors or to act as a base color when using eyeshadow on the lower lash line.

Tarina Tarantino Tommy Jet Eye Dream Hyperliner

Tarina Tarantino Tommy Jet Eye Dream Hyperliner ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “deepest black.” I’d argue it’s a dark black, but it’s not the richest, darkest black eyeliner I’ve come across. It’s not soft, and it’s a bit darker than medium black. There is a whole host of other black eyeliners that are comparable; most notably MAC Black Black, MAC Smolder, and Bobbi Brown Black. I promise: updated eyeliner comparisons are on my to-do list!

Tarina Tarantino Beauty Exits Sephora

I reached out to Tarina this AM to see if I could get an official response so I could share it with all of you, and she wanted me to share this with you:

Dear Fans of TARINA TARANTINO Beauty,

Our partnership with Sephora will regretfully run out at the end of December 2012, but don’t worry we are not going anywhere!

The entire Tarina Tarantino Beauty collection will soon be available online at www.tarinatarantino.com and at our flagship Tarina Tarantino boutique in Los Angeles.

Please stay tuned as we announce future collections and new beauty retail outlets that will be carrying them.

Thanks to all of you, and Sephora, for making our brand a sparkling success.

Please let us know what you would like to see next from TT Beauty!

Love & Sparkle,
Tarina

You can grab remaining stock at Sephora for ~40% off! I already picked up backups of all of the eyeliners :)

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich beet magenta.” It’s a rich raspberry red with subtle blue undertones and soft, glossy sheen. Revlon Raspberry Pie is a smidgen less red, not quite as bright. Guerlain Girly is redder. OCC Queen is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is rather close, just more opaque (so it looks a little darker).

5 Effortlessly Natural Blushes

5 Effortlessly Natural Blushes

My go-to for a great natural cheek color is Korres #15 Natural, which gives my cheeks a little warmth and natural color without being too pink or plum. I also really love Tarte Exposed, which gives a little more color but still retains a soft, natural result.

  1. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane — soft medium brown
  2. Burberry Russet — medium-dark brown with orange undertones
  3. Korres #15 Natural — medium-dark brown
  4. Tarte Exposed — muted rosy plum
  5. Burberry Cameo — muted plum

What’s your go-to blush for a natural cheek color?
