Under The Sea..... #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday and Happy Spring! 

I hope you all had a great weekend! Today is a very special day because it is my brother's birthday! Happy Birthday Jonathan! I love you lots and lots! :)

Today I am sharing with you my latest makeup find and obsession! It is the new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea collection! I have seen a lot of positive reviews on the internet about this new line and knew I had to try it out for myself and let me tell you, these products did not disappoint! Packed with marine botanicals, the whole line provides you with the benefits of algae and marine flower extracts that'll help to hydrate, brighten and give your skin a radiant finish. 

Lets start off with the packaging. This ombre blue color is just gorgeous! It makes me want to dive right into the sea! Since it's a little too cold for that right now haha lets just dive into the products ;)

Water Foundation & Aquacealer Concealer: These products are packaged in beautiful glass bottles and the tops have this gold and purple ombre color that reminds me of a glorious sunset by the sea. I have fallen in LOVE with this foundation and concealer. They are both water-based so the are super hydrating to the skin and super lightweight but at the same time they provide full and lasting coverage. Since they are water based, these product are also great for people with oily or sensitive skin. (FYI- I bought the shade Fair Neutral in the Foundation and Fair in the Aquacealer)

The products themselves are a work of art. I love displaying them on my bathroom counter and on my vanity. They look like something Ariel would use ;) #MermaidBeauty

Deep Dive Cleansing Gel: The first products I purchased from this line were the Foundation, Aquacealer and the Skin Twinkle palette. In the Foundation box I received a sample of this face wash. As soon as I used it I was hooked, I jumped onto Sephora.com and placed my order for it! Literally one pump cleanses off all of my makeup! It also hydrates my skin just enough without making it greasy. With it being a gel cleanser it helps to control the oil in my T-zone as well.

Marine Boosting Mist: This 4-in-1 mist works as a primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist and a skin refresher. It smells like oranges! I sprits this on my face before I apply my makeup and the again when I'm done to set my makeup. It'll help your makeup last for up to 12 hours! Then I packing it in my handbag to help refresh my makeup throughout the day. 

Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette: This palette is literally the 'highlight' of this line!! haha! ;) The two end colors are highly pigmented! One is more of a champagne/gold color and the other is more of a warmer pinky color. The middle highlight is a flatter based one, but I LOVE using it to brighten up my under eyes and correct any darkness. I am obsessed!

Quench Lip Rescue (Opal): This lip balm is amazing! I feel like my lips are being flooded with hydration every time I apply it. They provide a beautiful sheer color and give my lips this gorgeous sheen. 

I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of these products and which ones are your favs!
