Good News Ladies, The Search For Waterproof Makeup Ends With tarte cosmetics!

Good morning and happy Monday beauties!  Hope y’all had an amazing weekend and your week is off to a great start!  This weekend was my sister’s bridal shower! It was a lot of fun and,   after days (or maybe weeks…) of stressing, everything really came together and turned out exactly as I was hoping! (More to come from her shower later… I am going to share all the details and lots of photos in a post all about it soon! Promise!)

But, getting back on track… I sincerely hope, with summertime in full swing and the temperatures on the continuous climb reaching ungodly temperatures, you’re somehow staying somewhat cool and still enjoying the warm and sunny weather!

I’m not sure if you guys know this about me or not, but baseball is hands down my favorite sport and, in my opinion, one of the best parts about the summer!  A few weeks ago, my sister, her fiancé, Peter, my boyfriend, Dan, and I went to the Nationals game vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates (the Nats historic first no-hitter, if any of you were wondering!), and let me tell you…  It was so hot outside!  Naturally, my sister and I were dying (that’s not dramatic at all…), and as we were sweating our “faces” off we began talking about how we wish there were better waterproof makeup options available.  After a short conversation about it, we started talking about something else and seemingly forgot all about it.  But, on Sunday night when she and Peter were over at my house the topic came up again and we decided to do some digging to find out if there was something that we were missing.  After just a few short minutes of browsing our results on Google, we came across tarte cosmetics who, according to the abundance of customer reviews, seemed to have an amazing waterproof line!

After we found tarte’s waterproof makeup line, we decided we just had to try it for ourselves.  We saw that tarte is sold at Ulta stores, so we headed to the Ulta near my house and, although we both splurged a little more than we probably should have, it was well worth it because this stuff is amazing!

For those of you in the DC area, you know that we have had some unbearably hot weather this summer which, although I have complained about, has given me the perfect opportunity to really put my tarte products to the test and what do you know, every time I wear any of their products my face looks just as great when I get home at 7:30pm after the heat, humidity, and a terrible thunderstorm, as it does when I leave at 7:30am.  While I do not use only tarte products, because unfortunately I cannot afford to simply replace my entire inventory of makeup, I did get quite a few of the things that I have come to consider “essentials” in my daily routine, including:

  • tarte waterproof mascara (lights, camera, splashes waterproof mascara),
  • tarte waterproof eye primer (clean slate 360º creaseless 12-hr smoothing eye primer),
  • tarte waterproof eyeliner (skinny smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner), and
  • tarte waterproof concealer (Amazonian clay waterproof 12-hour concealer).

Let me tell you ladies that was the best waterproof mascara and the best waterproof concealer I have ever used!  I have never used waterproof primer or eyeliner, so I can’t really speak to that, but they were both amazing as well!  If you are looking for a new line of waterproof makeup to try out, tarte cosmetics is definitely my recommendation!

Plus, with (what I’m sure is) an equally amazing line of non-waterproof makeup, as well as a full skincare line, tarte really has everything you could possibly need when it comes to your face!  Add in the fact that it is all natural and free of all the parabens and toxins regularly found in many makeup products and you really can’t go wrong; personally, I cannot wait to try out more products from the company, especially the tarteguard 30  sunscreen lotion that reviewers have been raving about all over the Internet!

If you’re looking for a new brand to try out for any of your skincare needs, take a few minutes and check out tarte, I promise you will not be sorry you did and they will not let you down!

So ladies, what do you think?  Are you super excited to head to Ulta or Sephora and pick some up?  Have you already discovered and tried tarte?  Do you have a line of waterproof products that you absolutely love? Let me know your thoughts, as I always love getting your feedback and hearing your secret tips and tricks!  I hope you have an amazing day, gorgeous!
