Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliners Swatches, Photos, Reviews

I actually reviewed Glamorous Thief and Amethyst Android when these originally launched here, and I liked them then–and I really love the Eye Dream Hyperliners generally, after trying several shades for the past few weeks. I’ve been digging Locket Book and Sparkling Ammunition for a defined eye that’s not as stark as black. These are so, so smooth.   They have the same softness and smooth application as Urban Decay’s 24/7 Liners, actually, which wasn’t how I felt originally.  They deliver a fair amount of pigmentation in a single pass, though I’d probably use the same back-and-forth method I typically use with eyeliners for a really rich, opaque line of color. They hold up well without budging, fading, or smudging. I’ve worn them during a shower (the easiest and quickest way to test out “waterproof” claims–plus, humidity!) and had no issues there.

Tarina Tarantino Beauty for Fall 2011

Tarina Tarantino Beauty for Fall 2011

Tarina Tarantino’s beauty line was inspired by the richness and radiance of her own handcrafted jewelry, and this fall, the entire line is taking a daring turn with a bold new look that brings it to a whole new level. Sleek graphite-colored packaging, jewel tone accents, illustrations of iconic Tarina designs and new must-have palettes add a multi-faceted dimension to the line. The luxe, long-lasting formulas remain the same, luxuriously infused with crushed pearl, micronized diamond powder and finely milled gemstones to reflect the brilliance, luminosity and sophistication of a jewel.

In celebration of Tarina Tarantino Beauty’s new look, six Jewel Shadow Palettes will premiere this fall. These gorgeous vanity compacts each feature five coordinating eyeshadows with shimmering gemstone powders and a high intensity, long-wear formula that leaves your eyes sparkling like jewels. The glamorous oval shape of the compact also makes it easier to see the whole surface of your face when applying your makeup on the go. Choose from: Wonderful (shimmery forest greens, golds and browns), Lovely (pearlized grays, silvers and creams with matte black), Magical (pearlized pinks, taupes and plums), Delightful (pearlized beiges and pinks with matte chocolate brown), Fantastical (pearlized mauves, creams and plums, and Dreamy (pearlized coppers and golds with black with gold sparkle).

Lipstick & Lipgloss Pic Spam, Vol. 1

I don’t know why, but for awhile, it seems like I have a bajillion lipsticks and glosses I want to share with you, but I feel a little odd reviewing more than one or two per day. I always think, “Nobody wants to see FIVE lipsticks in ONE day!” Some of these are getting a little “stale” and are on the verge of getting put in the “never going to review” folder, and thus, PIC SPAM!
