First Look: Tarte's Aqualillies Waterproof Eye & Cheek Palette

Sunday, May 5, 2013

I'd been eyeing Tarte's Summer 2013 limited-edition Aqualillies Waterproof Eye & Cheek Palette for awhile now and was seriously thinking of picking it up before it was gone. 
Saturday morning, my friends wanted to pop into Sephora after our brunch, so I knew that I could not resist any longer.
Sephora + Me = Damage

My friend Megan needed a blush and bronzer so I convinced her to pick this up as well (enabler much??) As soon as I got home, I slapped some of this stuff on my face and I'm in LOVE!

Check it out...

Hello, Summer Look! 
(natural light)

The palette comes with a cute double-sided instruction sheet
Here's the look that inspired me, "Splish Splash"

This palette comes with 6 full size eyeshadows, 1 full size blush, 
1 matte bronzer, and 1 shimmering powder
All Products Used:
Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in Vanilla (not pictured) *
The Balm Time Balm concealer in Light *
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer in Brightener
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara *
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kajal eyeliner in Nude
L'Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24 Hour in Navy *
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Coral Crush + Vivids Lipcolor in Vibrant Mandarin

 I mixed up these two colors to recreate the Aqualilies 

The limited-edition warm peach blush in Captivating is so pretty
I did a light sweep of the Park Ave Princess bronzer as a contour
I highlighted my cheekbones, forehead, chin, and nose with Champagne

On Lid: Bikini (golden peach), Barefoot (golden nude), Parasol (champagne rose)
On Crease: Sundeck (light brown)
Upper and lower lashlines: Hammock (chocolate brown)
Eyeliner and Lower Waterline: L'Oreal gel eyeliner in Navy and Rimmel eyeliner in Nude

Hope you enjoyed!
