Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder Review

I received a sample size of the Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder in my May Ipsy Glam Bag. This silky finishing powder feels amazing on my face.

What’s to love?

The Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder looks and feels like the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder. It’s silky smooth and helps with my fine lines and imperfections. It’s oil free and does not look cakey on me.

Full-Sized price: $33

St. Tropez is my favorite because it has a very cool sparkly iridescent finish!

The Beauty Crop Lip Brulee Review

I received The Beauty Crop Lip Brulee in Butterscotch in the GlossyBox Limited Edition Mother’s Day 2018 Box called Melting For You. I am a huge fan of The Beauty Crop brand and this product is a nice addition to my collection.

What’s to love?

The Beauty Crop Lip Brulee is a super creamy high shine lip cream. The Butterscotch shade is a light pink. According to The Beauty Crop it is a “Caramel Nude shade” but it does have pink in it.

The color is more of a translucent hue that a full color coverage. It also looks amazing when I layer it on other lipstick.

It smells like butter cream frosting and feels very moisturizing on my lips. It has Jojoba and Apricot Kernel Oil. I really love this formula!

Lip Brulee has no Parabens, Mineral Oils, Phthalates and it’s Vegan, gluten free and cruelty free.

Price: $12.95
