Summer is just around the corner and our makeup needs to be able to withstand heat, humidity and water; that’s why I’m so excited about the newest waterproof cream eye shadows from Tarte. They are formulated with Tarte’s signature ingredient, Amazonian Clay, which serves to intensify pigmentation and also improves overall texture for a smooth application. Add natural botanicals like natural plant waxes, aloe leaf extract, beeswax, and vitamins A and E, leave out all the nasty parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalates and you’re left with high performance, waterproof silky smooth cream eye shadows.
These are very pigmented with a pretty sheen, but no glitter–yahoo! They are available in four gorgeous colors–Beach Bronze, Moss, Slate, and Seashell Pink. Each comes in a small (.1oz.) jar with a brush. I’m a little disappointed in the brush. I really had to dig to get the shadow out of the jar and get it on the brush.
On to the shades– Beach Bronze is a lovely copper, Moss a delicate pale green, Slate a silvery taupe and Seashell Pink–a nude with a touch of pink. Honestly I like them all! Beach Bronze would be fantastic on warmer skin and anyone with blue eyes, the rest I feel are pretty universal.
These eye shadows really deliver! They are smudge and crease proof (even without a primer) and come in four very flattering shades. I got a good 6-8 hours of wear– I didn’t however, shower in them to test to see if they are truly waterproof. Personally I don’t go swimming in eye shadow so it doesn’t really matter –now mascara is another story! They are so easy to wear–just a quick swipe and you’re good to go–no need for contouring or blending. High performing, good- for-you natural ingredients and easy to wear colors make Tarte’s Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eye Shadows a no brainer for summer and definitely worth a try!
Available at QVC for $25 each (currently $22.80).
