Weekly Get To Know Me (Makeup Edition)

I want to start a new weekly series where you get to know me. I will answer some questions, and give you a better idea of what's going on in my world. It doesn't have to be just about makeup. If you have any questions, you'd like me to answer. Go ahead and ask in the comments. I like learning more about the bloggers that I follow.

Favorite high-end makeup brand?

My favorite high-end makeup brand would have to be Tarte Cosmetics. I'm always drawn to Tarte eyeshadow palettes and blush palettes. Tarte Shape Tape is great too. I do wish it was sold in Sephora though. If I just need one item, I would prefer to go in store to pick it up rather than pay shipping fees.

Favorite online brands?

My absolute favorite online brand recently has been Colourpop. Their pressed eyeshadow palettes have really blown me away and I will continue to buy them. Their Ultra Satin lips are very comfortable to wear. I also want to try they concealers. Morphe Brushes is also a favorite. When I use their eyeshadow palettes there's no denying the foiled shadows are great.

Do you wear false lashes?

Yes, I do wear false lashes. I don't wear them every day but if I feel like putting them on and I have the time in the morning, I will. I don't usually wear them on weekend, because I like to nap with my son.

Favorite Drugstore Brand at the moment?

I've been pretty impressed with Maybelline. I love their mascaras and I recently tried their bronze palette and was surprised by how much I liked it. I want to get the blush palette next. They've been releasing some great products recently.

What beauty product do I buy alot of?

Palettes... I love eyeshadow and blush palettes. I feel like you get a great value when you buy them in palette form. I would say my top product would be eyeshadow. I have a hard time saying no to eyeshadow palettes that catch my eye.

What is on top of your current wishlist?

The Tarte Limited Edition Buried Treasure is on my wishlist. It looks so pretty, and I love the burgundy shades. I'm hoping it will come to in store at Sephora soon.

  11. Tarte is such an amazing brand! It's high end but not insanely expensive. And I've heard really bad things about that new palette but it's so beautiful I don't want to pass it up!
