I feel like my blogging and stuff is pretty inconsistent, but please bear with me :'( I am scrambling (like most people in their 20s do) and trying to figure out what the rest of my life will be like.
Anyway, I have set foot into the TT world! .. well, it's already been a few weeks, but please give me an opportunity to introduce a product I am very much in love with :)
It's the Tarina Tarantino Sparklickty Pure (exclusive at Sephora). The price is 19 dollars, there is only one shade, and in reality glitter has a very limited usage, BUT all in all I really like this product! :)
I am glad I stumbled upon this product and bought it at the spot.
Here's how the packaging looks like. It is in a glass container, with a bit cheap-looking cap. You have to peal the sticker of the lid, but I like opening the plastic cap in whole so I could dip my brush in it, or just scoop out a lot with a brush. (I'm not a big fan of plastic lids)
As you can see how it reflects the light, it is super shimmery and sparkly. But it's not chunky at all. It's more powdery, so you can use it like a pigment and foil it on as an eyeshadow too.
The color itself looks similar to Make Up For Ever's Star powder in 947 (which is a peachy pink with gold glitters), but they are totally different when swatched. The MUFE 947 has more of a beige, grayish undertone, while the TT sparklicity has a white-pearly pink hue to it.
These types of glitters are extremely pretty when lined under the lower lash line. They make your eye pop along with making your eye area brighter and more noticeable. I usually don't tend to do too much of that, since the down side is that it mixes with your mascara and liner and it could potentially lead to a huge mess.
Anyway, I usually use this to sprinkle on my base (either a primer or foundation), and it as a nice iridescent shine to my skin. For those of you who are planning to use this for that purpose, I do have to warn you - it could get chunky if you powder your base too much with this glitter. Always try to do things in moderation :)
I will definitely try to show how it shows up in videos.
Here's a dry swatch of it on my hand. As you can see, it's more of a milky-pink, than a gold pink.
And considering the fact that the camera isn't that good at picking up sparkling aspects, I think this picture shows how much sparkle this product has.
I will try to make more pic-tuts so you guys can see how it actually looks like when it's applied as makeup :p
