I have been using every single item in this collection every day since receiving it and it gets an A+ from me. This set is a seven-piece collection that features colored clay for a whole routine that creates a natural, glowy look. The set is pretty much everything you need for a full face of gorgeousness. It’s fantastic.
I also found a little gift inside, a crystal stone necklace from @Akitching ‘s jewelry line, Crystal Cactus. Wow, is this stunning!!
Amethyst is my birthstone, so I was really happy to find this jewel inside that huge raspberry makeup bag.
What else was inside? The truly unique colored clay CC primer.
Mine is in shade light. This is a color-correcting stick that neutralizes imperfections, brightens the complexion, and primes skin for foundation. Just smooth it on and then tap it in with fingers. The CC primer melts right in and creates a perfect canvas for foundation application.
Once you have primed with the CC primer, next up is the colored clay liquid foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (a World-wide Launch, by the way!) using the bamboo liquid foundation brush.
The colored clay foundation with broad spectrum SPF 15 coverage gives medium but buildable coverage with a satin finish. The bamboo foundation brush is stellar – just press in onto the mesh sifter inside the foundation container then buff onto skin, going from the center out.
Follow that with the colored clay bronzer blush in pink bronze (yet another World-wide Launch).
I can hear all the oohs and aahs and this beaut certainly deserves it! It’s a combination of pinks and golds that warms the complexion and adds a natural glow. Dust it all over for instant warmth, and layer it on the cheeks as a blush.
Moving on up to the eyes, line with the colored clay eyeliner in black (woohoo, another World-wide Launch!) followed by two coats of the stupendous lights, camera, LASHES™ 4-in-1 mascara in Black.
For my eye look above, I am wearing a wash of MAC Painterly. I defined and lined my top lash line and waterline with the new colored clay eye liner in Black, which is a velvety eyeliner that truly glides on easily. Then, I finished with two coats of lights, camera, LASHES(TM) 4-in-1 mascara. This is a seriously fantastic mascara, one of my top mascaras ever. It gives great length, volume, and curl, plus it never smears on me. Love it.
The final touch for your tarte Shades of Clay look? The golden raspberry LipSurgence™ lip gloss in true love (can I get a World-wide Launch here?)
LipSurgence(TM) Lip Gloss in true love is a wonderfully flattering sheer raspberry shade with tiny golden shimmers. It has great slip and feels terrific on – this has found a permanent home in my purse.
I think every product is a winner and the shades are incredibly flattering. Plus, at this price you just can’t go wrong! Set your timer, leave yourself a note, do something so you don’t miss this sale. Again, the Today’s Special Value® is only available at its special price until 11:59 p.m. PT on February 4, 2014 while quantity remains. You will be glad you remembered! - Lisa
