The Post You've All Been Waiting For!

Nearly a year in the making, and here is my second beauty post! Kind of fell by the wayside, but now I'm all charged up again to talk about beauty! My new obsession is Tarte. Yes, I know that I have waxed rhapsodical on BE, and I still have a very strong affection for all things BE (especially the new Primer Shadows, but that's a topic for another post), but I have really been loving Tarte these days, especially the Lipsurgence glosses. OMG, heaven on the lips!!! Yet another product with a minty taste/smell, but one that does NOT dry out the lips. Could use a few more Blingmama-friendly colors, but I'm sure that will eventually come. :)  For now, favorites for my warm, fair skintone include Joy, a lovely medium peach; Achiote (an exclusive color to QVC), another slightly deeper peach tone; and Glisten, which is a sheer, gold-flecked peach.   I'm anxious to try out the new colors promised soon - inspired by Trueblood, I believe..........Muahahahaha!  I saw the colors swatched on a favorite beauty blog I read, and they were absolutely stunning.  Reds, of course.  :)
