I love Tarina Tarantino jewelry, but I think I love the cosmetics even more. My favorite items are the Hyperliner Eye Liners and Gem Gloss Lip Gloss. I have my favorites for you today and then we have a Beauty Info Zone giveaway for Marcia’s favorite, the Eyeshadow Jewel Palette in Magical.
While I tend to gravitate toward gel eyeliners in pots, my favorite pencil eyeliners are Tarina Tarantino’s Eye Dream Hyperliner. The Eye Dream Hyperliner is a gel texture that I love, not too soft and not too hard. It applies smoothly thanks to the tiny spheres of jojoba oil and vitamin E. I can create either a thick or thin line with ease. It stays beautifully without smearing, even with my oily lids. Do you prefer a thick or thin line? This pencil can do either. The Hyperliner is extremely pigmented and also waterproof.
Three of my favorite shades include Cute Robot, an electric blue; Locket Book, a metallic brown; and Broken Doll, a soft pink.
Cute Robot is a blackened blue that makes brown eyes in particular stand out beautifully.Locket Book has golden tones and the metallic sheen is great for night looks. Broken Doll is so wonderful for the waterline! It makes my eyes look huge and I get a lot of wear time before it fades.
I also love the Tarina Tarantino Gem Glosses in Carousel and Neon Vanity.
Carousel is a shimmery plum and Neon Vanity is a melon pink. These are wet glosses but they aren’t sticky at all. The lack of stickiness does effect the lasting power, but the shades are so beautiful and shiny I always have them in my purse.
What they lack in longevity they make up for in shine and shades. I reach for them all the time.
Marcia swears by the Tarina Tarantino Jewel Palette in Magical. She has reviewed it several times, in fact. Here’s what she says:
Magical isn’t a palette that yells at people – it isn’t bright at all. It’s soft and subtle though you can easily intensify the shades.
Here’s how Tarina Tarantino’s website describes Magical: creamy white shimmer, pearl ash pink, pearl beige, pearl eggplant purple,pearl soft pink. During Makeup Wars I described the shades as mauve, smoky amethyst, violet, creamy white and a light pink lilac.
It’s “magical” for several reasons:
- The shadows are soft to the touch.
- They blend easily into each other without leaving harsh lines.
- They are almost creamy and not powdery.
- There’s no shimmer but there is a soft pearl finish (my absolute favorite).
- There’s no fallout.
- It lasts wonderfully throughout the day as long as you are wearing an eyeshadow primer.
- Every shade works with the other shades in the palette so there’s no waste.
- I love how it looks, I want to wear it often – that’s magic!
Now that sounds like one magical eyeshadow palette!
