Tarte Tartelette Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos & Swatches

Tarte Tartelette Palette

When I first got a glimpse at Tarte Cosmetics‘ newest palette, Tartelette ($44), I knew I had to have it. I have tons of neutral matte eyeshadow palettes but something about this one spoke to me.

Tarte’s newest palette features 12 exclusive all-matte eyeshadows infused with their signature Amazonia clay. Each eyeshadow is named to inspire, celebrate and empower women (I think the eyeshadow names are what spoke to me). The palette also comes with a step-by-step guide for creating a daytime and a nighttime look using the shadows. I actually wish Tarte included a step-by-step guide for four looks instead of two. I don’t think their daytime guide was very practical, most women are not going to wear a plum eye makeup look with purple liner during the day.

How-to: Get Rid of Sweat Stains & Smell From Clothing

Use baking soda and vinegar to get rid of sweat stains and smell

There is nothing more frustrating than trying to get sweat stains and smell out from clothing. After realizing that no matter how many times I put certain shirts or gym clothing in the wash, the smell of perspiration still lingered.

Since no commercial detergent was working, I decided to look for answers and see if there was some natural way to get rid of the smell. Vinegar and baking soda are the ultimate all-purpose cleaner when combined, so I decided to give the power combo a try on my clothing.

While baking soda helps combat grease and body oils while neutralizing sweaty odors, the vinegar kills off any bacteria lingering in your clothes. Together, they will leave your clothes looking clean and smelling fresh.

There are several ways of using this power duo on your clothing, here are my three fool-proof ways.

Buy This, Not That: Beauty Blender Cleanser Dupe

Beauty Blender Cleanser Dupe

Hi, my name is Vicky and I love drugstore dupes. Nothing gives me more pleasure than finding a drugstore dupe for a high-end product. My theory is that, why would I spend $20 on a product, when I can spend $2 on something that works just as well.

I love my Beauty Blenders, they are truly a holy grail beauty product that is worth every penny but spending $20 every few months for a sponge cleaner is just ridiculous.

This theory led me to find a great Beauty Blender cleaner dupe, Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Wash which I believe works just as well as the original Beauty Blender cleanser. You can clearly see how well the baby wash works in the photo above, pictured on the left is one of my dirty sponges and pictured on the right is a newly cleaned sponge.

You shouldn’t have to spend a fortune to clean your sponges, baby wash and baby shampoos (great for your makeup brushes) are gentle enough for cleaning your makeup tools without all the harsh chemicals.

Hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you tried Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Wash on your Beauty Blender sponges in comments below!
