Simple Eye, Glossy Lip | Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint | Courtney Kaner


I was recently browsing around Sephora, picking up my daily necessities when I thought to myself, I need more glosses. Then again, I always say I need something makeup related. While looking around, I passed Nars’ glosses, which I love, then stumbled upon one of my favorite displays- Tarte. I’ve been eyeing their lip paints for a while. But because it is summer, I wasn’t looking for a matte lip cream, but a gloss. Clearly, it was meant to be! Tarte recently came out with their line of Tarteist Lip Paints, but glossy versions.

I purchased double tap, which is a slightly gray mauve. It has such a creamy and smooth formula without it being sticky and having to peel blown hairs out of my lips. The applicator is soft and a pretty decent size for the tube. The selection of colors range from peaches and pinks, to nudes and purples.

I have always been a fan of Tarte, so I am partly biased, but I am so content with my gloss purchase that I wanted to share it with you all. I get asked a lot what some of my favorite lip products are, and frankly, I have no idea! I have yet to find one that screams Me or that I would feel like wearing everyday. However, the lip paint is currently at the top of my list.

I paired the gloss with such a simple makeup look because the color looks great with full glam and little to no makeup. A link to the product is listed below, along with my new tutorial feat. the beautiful gloss!

The smell of peppermint bark and cooked ginger bread aren’t normally something you’d want to use in the shower, right? That is certainly about to change! Philosophy has come out with a line of holiday gifts that will surely make your taste buds water. The fragrances actually smell like they came right out of the oven, considering they contain real chocolate or other edible ingredients. At first, I was hesitant to try these scents, since I am used to a fresh, citrus smell in the shower. However, these warm fragrances smell delectable and feel great on the skin too! The set I bought was only $42, which is a steal, and contains four body washes/shampoo and four glosses, which are also mouth watering. I had to apply the marshmallow three times because I could not stop licking my lips!

These sets are a steal for the holidays and vary in scents and themes. I bought my best friend the package with “baked goods,” containing frosting and cookie scented goodies. Can I also say the packaging is adorable and so chic! Definitely a great way to save wrapping paper!

So for this holiday, definitely check out the Philosophy sets of lotions, glosses, and body washes/shampoo. They are so versatile and are a great gift for anyone in your life! They can be found at Sephora, but get them while they last! They be running out fast!I approve and cannot wait to try out more of their products! Definitely worth the splurge!
