I’m not so much an eyeshadow wearer. Rather, I tend to overdose on black eyeliner with regularity. On occasion I will work it out with a colored eyeliner. Wooooo… But, when I’m feeling fancy or trying to look all extra, I will punch up my eye makeup game with some shadow.
There is one caveat however. When I wear shadow, it has to be sultry. Sexy. Smokin’. I’m not that girl who wears the soft colors, or the bright colors or God forbid, “earth tones.” Okay, exaggerating…
I think this is where I start to write the review.
I recently received some new eyeshadows from my fave brand Tarte, and guess what? I love them. That wasn’t a surprise though. What was a surprise is that I have actually worn these gorgeous eyeshadows. More than once. And I am living testimony that they last the full 12 hours they claim because I wore mine for 24 hours. Shhhh….
So, here are the details about Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow:
A waterproof cream eye shadow powered by skintuituve™ Amazonian clay.
What it does:
Ideal for creating a soft or smoky look, micronized Amazonian clay intensifies color pigments while working to nourish lids, reduce surface oil, and improve overall texture. Natural carnauba wax acts as a built-in shadow primer to ensure smooth application by softening the skin and increasing hydration.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan
What else you need to know:
Amazonian clay is a nutrient-rich, multitasking, and total-skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin’s surface for smooth application and wear .
Why I love these amazing eyeshadows:
Well, they are just plain gorgeous. Soft, creamy buildable and blendable color that lasts for hours. And hours, and hours. And it does not crease or flake. These Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream eyeshadows are truly waterproof—I mean, they do not run.
Even in the middle of my working it out on the dance floor and exposing my eyes to a proliferation of sweat from a hot flash, my eyeshadow stayed put.
I even slept in it. And I was tempted to do what I did in my twenties—wear it again. (that was my very, very early twenties)
I love that I can use it as a liner too. I did a beautiful summer smokey eye look the other day, which ran into night, and my shadow was popping all night. Not so bad for an over 50 broad. Check me out below.
I am wearing Shimmering Moss on my lid, with Shimmering Bronze in my crease. I added a touch of Seashell pink on my brow bone for a light highlight. Love.
