Fragrance is one of the few things that can change my mood in an instant and I constantly change up what scent I wear depending on how I feel that day. With Tiffany and Co.’s debut scent, you immediately get a sense of class, luxury and elegance. The bottle is shaped like a gemstone and housed in Tiffany blue box and is a sparkling floral musk. The heart note is Noble Iris and is surrounded by top note Vert de Mandarine and base notes of Patchouli and Musk.
None of these are scents I really enjoy on their own but together they make a sophisticated, long-wearing scent that’s neither too heavy or overpowering. While this isn’t a fragrance I’d choose for warmer weather, it’s perfect for fall and winter and on cold days where I need a little luxury, this is an easy way to get there.
Tarte is lighting up the season and adding a little sparkle and shine with a few new highlighters. There are two types of Tarte Highlighters for all of your needs: Tarteist Pro Glow Liquid Highlighter and Tarte Twinkle Stick. These highlighters are very different, and I feel like people will prefer one or the other, but not both.
I prefer the Tarteist Pro Glow Liquid Highlighter. These little tubes have beautiful colours that perfectly complimented my skin. The two shades (Exposed and Sparkler) have a slight bronze metallic hue. This is perfect for giving me a highlighting glow to my cheeks that almost looks sunkissed. As you might expect when you see the petite size of these highlighters, a little goes a long way. Start with just a drop on your cheeks and add on. This Tarte Highlighter blends well, but makes a big impact.
The Tarte Twinkle Stick isn’t my fave, but it’s going to be popular with a lot of people. I actually expected to like it more. This stick style makeup looks adorable in the packaging and the silver shimmer stick just makes you want to apply. Obviously with the stick format, it’s simple to use. Just swipe, blend and go. You can literally add highlighter to your cheeks, or anywhere else you want, in about two seconds. The reason I don’t like it as much is that I don’t find the highlighting shimmer as prominent in this stick makeup. The Tarte Twinkle Stick is much more subtle. On my skin tone, it doesn’t make as much impact. I think if you had darker skin than me, it would create a beautiful shimmer.
