tarte Royal Collection – Plum Grey and Steel Grey

The tarte Cosmetics Royal Collection is beautifully packaged and comes with 16 beautiful shades with plenty of neutrals to choose from, mattes and shimmers, and a few pops of color. It also has a few extra goodies that come in a little secret compartment. Unfortunately, these shadows don’t have names, which makes it a little harder for a certain beauty blogger to talk about each color!

I think tarte shadows apply smoothly, for the most part. The trick for me is to use a larger or fluffier brush to pack on the color better than a compact, smaller brush will do.

BE’s Sticky Buns/Muffin Top lipstick and lipgloss duo is a product that I tend to forget about, and am always so pleasantly surprised at how pretty it is when I use it!

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
