Tarte Good as Gold Limited Edition Lipgloss Collection – The Best Holiday Gift for a Lip Gloss Junkie
I am head-over-heels in love with this lip gloss set from Tarte. The Good as Gold Limited Edition Lipgloss Collection is absolutely fabulous for girls that love gloss and glitz. Included are 15 mini lip glosses in beautiful shades that range from pinks, to nudes and reds. And, as always, the Tarte formula is amazing; non-stick feel and pleasant scent. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I have swatched some of my favorite shades from the collection, which you can check out below:
I can’t say enough good things about this. If you’re not familiar with Tarte glosses, you’ll be pleased to know that they are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic dyes or fragrances. Additionally, they include fruit extracts like gogi berry, acai berry, and pomegranate. For $29, this is a steal!
Note: Some reviewers on Sephora.com have noticed problems with the cap coming apart – I have not experienced this issue and none of these glosses have broken on me yet.

Palladio’s Lip Ink comes in a felt-tip tube, similar to a permanent marker. The packaging is quite cute, actually, and very portable. It has a smooth feel when applying, and also a slightly fruity scent. On its own, the stain will last at least a few hours without fading. Palladio claims that this is a non-drying formula. As with all stain products, you want to be sure that you don’t have dry areas on your lips before applying, as these will absorb more color.
For a fresh summer look, try this stain with just mascara and creme blush.
Check out Palladio Lip Ink, here, or pick it up at Ulta and Sally Beauty stores.

Tarte’s Green Siren imparts a lovely “golden apricot” shade of creme blush stain that looks amazing with a tan. To apply, remove cap and use fingers, sponge, or direct contact to dab and blend the stain onto the apples of your cheeks. It’s very easy and a perfect addition to any summer makeup routine.

The formula has a medium consistency, it is not sticky but feels like you “have something on,” which I like. It has a delicious, very faint, vanilla scent. The shades are beautiful! I tried Femme Fatale, Seductive, and my favorite, Innocence.
Each gloss has a nice balance of sheerness, color, and shimmer. I love the fact that the sleek packages have brush applicators, which are always so much better than doe-foot or other kinds.
You absolutely need to check these out. Visit Vis-à-Vis on the web to find out more information, right now they are 2 for $25!

Nubar is a nail polish company that stands behind it’s ability to offer carcinogenic free nail care products. This means no formaldehyde, no toulene, and no phthalate (DBP). As far as wear goes, I am really rough on my nails and I got four days out of this polish with a light top coat and only had one significant chip. The polish itself applied silky smooth, and covered well with two coats.
This collection retails for $45 and would be an amazing gift for any dark polish or wine lover!
These sell for $12. each full size, or $2. for sample size. There are more colors on J. Lynne’s website!
