It feels like a birthday month when companies send out exclusive offers. One of the first I received this month was from Sephora. As a Black card Beauty Pass member, I got $10 off my next purchase, as well as a deluxe sample set of tarte’s exclusive birthday blush and liquid lipstick.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: Paaarty
For its name, I expected this blush to be some crazy in-your-face pink, but was happy to find a muted pinky-mauve shade. I’m happy to report it’s a pretty unique colour, while still being very everyday friendly! I haven’t tried any full-sized Amazonian Clay blushes, but I found this one applied and blended out nicely on my skin, as well as having good wear time.
Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint: Birthday Suit
OK, this name suits the shade much better! Birthday Suit is a nude-pink colour, and on my skin I’d call it a “your lips but better shade”. I found this lasted a few hours on my lips before fading, and wore away nicely. It was surprisingly comfortable for a liquid lipstick too!
I’m very happy with both products I received as part of my birthday gift from Sephora/Tarte, and think these are pretty safe, universally-flattering colour choices.
You’ll notice I used the $10 for Tarte’s Pack Your Bags under eye patches, and was able to get a bunch of free deluxe samples with beauty pass points and an in-app code. #winning!
