Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Slate and Seashell Pink $19 each

Let me introduce you to my new best friends, Slate and Seashell Pink. My Dad went to Seatlle for work a couple of weeks ago, so I gave him some leftover dollars from New York and instructions to find his nearest Sephora and visit the Tarte counter. Boy, did Dad do me proud!

I asked him to get me these as I was so impressed with the Amazonian Clay Blush that I wanted something else that had this amazing amazonian clay, so hello eyeshadows. Slate is a deep grey with a hint of purple in it. I've been wearing this A LOT since I got it, it's become my everyday eyeshadow teamed with a flick of eyeliner. Seashell pink is a very shimmery girly pale pink, which is perfect for days when I don't want a dark eye, but more of a natural look.

The eyeshadows themselves are a bit wow. I'm not usually a fan of cream eyeshadows as I always think they just settle in the creases and are difficult to apply. Now, these aren't easy peasy - the pots are quite hard to get the brush in and you have to really swirl it around to get a good amount of product onto it. But after that they go on really smoothly and don't require much blending. After that comes the magic.

So, I put my eyeshadow on about 8am, to go to work. I come home around half 5 (so a good 9 and a half hours later) and oh my god. It's still here. It's not stuck to the creams, it's not faded, it's still all there. First time I wore this I was convinced I was seeing things, or it had permanently dyed my eyelids, but no. It did the same the next time, and the time after that. Another thing I love about it, and don't ask me how this works cause I have no idea, but when I put my Pixi Lash Line Ink over the top it doesn't transfer onto my upper lid like it usually do - go figure!

So yes, in summary before I babble on and on about how much I love these, new best friends, best eyeshadows ever. Go to America JUST to get some Tarte products. Yes yes.

Does anyone know of anywhere you can get Tarte products in the UK?
