The new exfoliator to change skincare

Everyone in the Beauty Industry knows that Tarte Cosmetics have amazing makeup that is high performance and natural. But with Tarte Cosmetics beginning to introduce skincare into their repertoire, the skincare world is about to change!

One of Tarte’s new skincare products about to hit Sephora in Australia is an handy little exfoliator which fits in the palm of a hand. This little stick is called the ‘Frxxxtion Stick’. Packaged in the cutest little ‘roll-on-deodorant’ style packaging, this exfoliator is so easy and portable, with no mess.

I decided I’d give this a go since I love anything exfoliating and purifying for the skin!

Applying this product was super easy and gentle to the skin, with the charcoal coloured exfoliating gel easily applying all over the face. Dispensing the product was simple with a twist of the base of the stick and easy to hold in the hand while massaging the product into the face.

With most exfoliating masks/gels I like to keep it on the face for around 10 minutes just to create a bit of a purifying mask and added benefits, so after the 10 minutes I simply used my hands to massage the product into the face a little more before washing it off.

r fine and didn’t create any redness for my sensitive skin! After washing off this product I found that my skin was definitely a lot smoother just like after exfoliating with most other masks I’ve used. I like the fact this exfoliator is super gentle on the skin but still does a great job at getting rid of the outer layer of skin cells. This product definitely leaves the skin feeling clean and doesn’t strip the skin of it’s hydration!

For the girl on the go, this is definitely a product I’d recommend. Another ting I love about this product is the price! For $36AUD it’s a must-have in any skincare routine.

I know that I’ll be packing this in my suitcase when I travel to Europe later on this year!!

So what are your favourite Exfoliating products and why? 


Review of the Tarteist Pro-To-Go Palette by the brand Tarte

Hello again lovelies,

Today I decided I would bring a mini-review on a brand whose eyeshadows I absolutely love! Tarte has released a new ‘Pro’ range in Sephora and with this launch comes an exciting little addition to the mix; the Tartiest ‘Pro-To-Go’ palette!

So what caught my attention at first sight was the lovely ‘soft’ to the touch senesation that it has. The feeling is like a smooth, velvety like feeling (but without the felt-like fur). Another thing I think Tarte does really well with their eyeshadow palette’s is the fact that they always include a mirror so you can easily apply on the go (which is exactly what the name of this palette assumes).

This palette includes 6 shades with warm undertones (yay!) of which 3 have a satin finish, and the other 3 are matte.

The following are the swatches corresponding to the palette shade names on the right in the pan!





All of these shades are easily buildable and so blendable which is what I love, so there’s definitely an ease of application with these pigments. One thing I have found using this palette is the satin shades (Hype, Boss, and Dominate) are better applied to the eyelid with a finger as they don’t pick up as easily on a brush. For all you makeup lovers who like decadent scented makeup, this palette also has a beautiful smell of cocoa right from the moment you open it so applying your eyeshadow has never been more luxurious.

This palette is also formulated without all the nasties like parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, triclosan and gluten, so for any ingredient conscious beauty lovers out there, its perfect for you.

My final words on this amazing palette that pack a punch a lot bigger than it’s size; is that it’s definitely going to be super popular, and has all the shades you need to create a variety of looks to take you from day-to night, right in the convenience of your clutch!
