Spring Fever with Tarte Cosmetics.

Who is not having a little bit of Spring fever right now? I am so tired from traveling and have a lot going on  with my family right now. Between the emotions, exhaustion, and the weather changing so much, I am dreaming of the perfect Spring. And this new set from Tarte has me lusting after it even more.

Look how cute this set is!

This set takes spring's hottest beauty trends and translates them to more wearable colors that'll take you well into fall. Plus, these products contain a blend of Tarte's skinvigorating™ ingredients such as vitamins C and E and mineral pigments.

The entire Spring Fever Kit includes a mini Blushing Bride, a mini Spring Fever SPF 15 Lip Sheer, a Waterlilies Eyeliner, a North Island Eyeshadow Duo, and a Brush With Greatness double-ended eyeshadow brush.

Tarte's Spring Fever set is available exclusively at Sephora for a price of $40.

In case you have not heard about this beauty yet (which was on Oprah's favorite things, btw), here are all the details:

"Developed by the lead inventor of Sonicare®, Clarisonic® uses patented sonic technology to gently yet deeply cleanse pores of environmental toxins, makeup and bacteria ~ without abrasion or harsh chemicals. 

Unlike superficial cleansing, Clarisonic removes greater than 6X more makeup and actually increases product absorption - making the skin more receptive to skin care ingredients (up to 61% in a recent study).  Skin is demonstrably hydrated, more even-textured, and suffused with a beautiful glow.  With regular daily use the Clarisonic reduces dry skin patches, oily areas and blemishes.   Pore size, fine lines and wrinkles appear smaller.  Gentle enough for most skin types.  Waterproof and rechargeable for use at the sink and the shower.  Used and recommended by leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons."

I am so excited and can't wait to get it. I am sure it will not be the only thing in my box either! ;) Do let me know what you cave on.

Sun Safety from Sephora.

I am so excited to be on my way to LA for Total Beauty and their first beauty blogging summit. I know I will find at least a few minutes to dip my toes into the Pacific for the first time, and I have my sunscreen ready.

I wish I saw this kit a few days ago so I could have ordered it up in time. The kit I am speaking of is this beauty, Sephora's Sun Safety Kit.

This kit contains 11 travel-sized sunscreen and skincare for the face and body that are a definite must-have for the Summer season. And what a great way to try out a new brand before investing in full-size too.

In the great pouch are the following: Korres Natural Products Watermelon Sunscreen Face Cream SPF 30, Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Defense Moisture Lotion SPF 30, DDF Daily Protective Moisturizer SPF 15,  Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20,  Juice Beauty Green Apple Moisturizer SPF 15,  Murad Firming Bronzer SPF 15, Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 PA + + +, six single-use packs of MD Skincare Powerful Sun Protection Pads SPF 30, Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream Ultra Protection SPF 30, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 15, Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer SPF 15.

Shop Sephora and Sephora.com for this $25 sun-spectacular kit. Separately, these beauties would run you $87.
