Tarina Tarantion Jasper Agate Sparklicity Shadow Duo

Tarina Tarantino Spring 2012 Collection

TARINA TARANTINO introduces the Spring 2012 collection, shimmering, versatile shades infused with micronized platinum powders and highlighting ingredients that reflect the brilliance, luminosity and sophistication of a jewel. Inspired by the richness and radiance of her own handcrafted jewelry, this haute accessories designer and former makeup artist shares her passion for self-expression and playfulness with her latest cosmetics collection, available only at Sephora. It’s makeup that makes a statement—like any great accessory would.

Eye Dream Hyperlight ($22.00)

This liquid spotlight luminizes and brightens under eyes and along the cheek bones to instantly give you a lit-from-within glow. Consider this your “magic wand” and use this blendable, crease-free formulation under or over concealer to keep you looking refreshed at all times. Available in one universal shade.

Eye Dream Highlight Duo ($19.00)

This superb eyeshadow duo is infused with luxurious platinum powders that create a glowing effect for your eyes. Tarina suggests applying to the inner corner of the eyes and on the browbone for a beautiful highlighted effect. Available in four color coordinated duos:

  • Mr. Gold and Mr. Silver Gold and silver
  • Amber and Elektron Bronze and vanilla
  • Jasper and Agate Buttermilk and taupe
  • Iris Plume and Moon Opal Lilac and soft pink

Dollskin Cheek Palette ($45.00)

Consists of four beautiful full-sized blushes in one gorgeous palette so you can play with color on your cheeks. The silky formula imparts a natural glow with true pigment payoff that wears all day long, applies evenly and is buildable for a customized look. Tarina has created the perfect range of shades to give cheeks a sweet romantic flush on any skin tone: Candy Cameo (shimmery pink), Feather (shimmery peach), Carved Rose (cool vivid pink) and Parasol (shimmery peach/pink). Tarina’s application tip: Concentrate color on the apple for a “dolly cheek,” or just along the cheekbone for a “disco cheek” effect.

Fleur de Lash Mascara ($19.00)

A superior formulation that thickens and lengthens for maximum volume lashes in new gunmetal faceted tube that reflects like a jewel.

Jewel Mirror ($25.00)

Inspired by Tarina’s iconic jewelry, the vintage oval design is made from glass crystals and inscribed with Tarina’s special message: Get Ready to Sparkle! The two-sided, compact mirror includes both 1x and 3x magnification, perfect to take with you everywhere! Available in four different vintage colors: Glitter Mist (iridescent opal), Emerald Pretty (green), Pink Pucker (pink), Lilac Crush (purple).

availability: February 2012 at Sephora stores, sephora.com

    Lovely! Too bad I can’t find Tarina Tarantino in Portugal. Christine, is there a reason why the Like option on the products is off?

    • We had to temporarily disable it because it was slowing down the entire site. I posted this on Twitter and Facebook to alert readers as soon as we did it!

  4. I want all the duos! ESP the gold and silver one! But I want all!

    Christine I wonder if they gave you the wrong information about the cheek palette or Sephora’s description is incorrect(Since I have seen that numerous times before). The info they gave you says four full sized blushes which are 0.2 oz each I believe. I was like wow that is a great deal but when I went to check it out on Sephora.com they have the weight as 1.2 oz x 4 :( I can’t get to a Sephora to look at an actual package so that’s too bad I guess. lol
