Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Splash ($24) and did a little happy dance (the liner was sent gratis by Tarte). I love this collection, and Splash was "on my list."
The Aqualillies Collection was inspired by the Aqualillies, America's hottest water ballet entertainment company. You can learn more about them at their own Web site. While they don't compete as synchronized swimmers, as I had originally thought, they do take their performances on the road, mesmerizing audiences with their modern strength and vintage beauty. These
true Tartelettes, fearlessly powerful, healthy, real women, are the
perfect muses for this high-performance, splash-proof Tarte collaboration.
The custom-designed angle of the
limited-edition, double-ended bamboo liner brush allows for the most
precise line possible for a sleek or bold splash of color. Whether
you’re captivating audiences with a poolside performance, or powering
through your busy day, the unique fusion of technologies results in an
intense, yet smooth and plush cream teal line that will stay in place
and last in the water as long as you do.
I was losing my light yesterday when I took these swatch photos. That seems to be the story of my photography this week. The product photos above a just a tad dark.
I used Tarte's fancy liner brush and drew a T, which seemed perfectly appropriate. It was cold and windy, but Splash brightened my mood with its shimmering aqua color. It made me think of summer.
In concert with the Aqualillies Collection - and because the design is so pretty - Tarte is offering beautiful coordinating accessories (in very limited quantities) with online Aqualillies Collection purchases. Make sure to check out the makeup bag, tote, and shower cap at this link. I'm going off to place an order before they sell out, which should be very quickly. I want that tote! I'd love the have the makeup bag too, but I can't order that much.
You can find this fabulous collection (make sure to look at the eye and cheek palette) at Tarte's Web site, where shipping is free with a $40 purchase. The collection will be available at all of Tarte's retailers in April.
