Friday FOTD: Featuring a Blend of Tarte, Natasha Denona, By Terry and Surratt Beauty!

Happy Friday, lovelies!  Today, I have a round of beauty to share--some new discoveries, others trusted stand by's--that works together to create a glowing, neutral look that is easy to apply and lasts for hours.  Oh, and it's a marvelous beacon of the impending spring! 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...


  • *Tarteist Lip Crayons in Boho and Latergram: When mixed, the pale nude Boho and rosy nude Latergram provide a lovely and lasting base for my neutral beige lip color to come.  I appreciate the fact that these lip liners are creamy, hydrating and self-sharpening. 
  • *Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste: I was instantly drawn to this resplendent matte nude lip color. The formula is smooth and slightly minty (in taste only, no tingle to speak of) with immense coverage.  Despite being matte, I don't this lip color to be overly drying or uncomfortable and even though it applies quite light, it deepens slightly as it dries down, creating a lush, quintessentially nude lip look.
