This counts as soon right? A little over a week? Here’s my review for Tarte’s Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer in the colour Light!
This waterproof, full-coverage concealer combines the calming properties of vitamins A and E and the soothing quality of Amazonian clay to nourish while completely masking discolorations and imperfections for better looking skin. Amazonian clay acts as a total skin balancer by reducing dryness and flakiness while improving the appearance and texture of skin for longer, waterproof wear! The buildable full-coverage formula is rich in pigments for truer color without a heavy or tacky texture, making it ideal for hiding any and all imperfections from dark circles to blemishes to redness. Designed for brush-free application, blending this creamy concealer with your finger allows the formula to melt into the skin for an easy application and opaque airbrushed effect.
I’ve actually been getting really crazy skin lately so I needed a better concealer. I needed something that was creamy without making my face an oily mess. I’ve been getting flaky skin from a topical cream that my doctor gave me so my old concealer wasn’t cutting it since it would make any dry spots on my skin stand out.
Tarte’s Amazonian clay concealer was just what I was searching for. Tarte’s formula is creamy enough that most dry spots wouldn’t be highlighted and if it seems to, give it a moment. Apply with your fingers on those spots to warm up the concealer to help it blend into your skin. Give it a bit of time and it’ll blend flawlessly. Usually I dislike using my fingers to apply makeup aside from the concealer that goes under my eyes, but I do like to do touch ups with my fingers with this concealer on spots that need it more.
Since my skin is going crazy I also appreciated that it is oil-free and the ingredient used – Amazonian clay – seemed like things that won’t irritate my skin further and perhaps even help it. A problem I have with wearing just concealer, usually, is the short wear-time of the product. I don’t have a problem with Tarte’s concealer though. Perhaps it’s because of the Amazonian clay, my face doesn’t get as oily nor as fast which means the product doesn’t slide around much. Thus, I can get away with just wearing concealer on my face with a bit of setting powder to keep it on longer.
I don’t know if I would consider this a full-coverage concealer, but it’s definitely buildable. It doesn’t cake up if you lightly dab a bit on at a time with your fingers on spots that need higher coverage.
I would recommend this concealer to everyone because I really think it would work with any skin type! It definitely made me purchase a bunch of other products from Tarte to try when I saw that they also had a 30% off sale last month!
December was a disappointing month for Glymm. None of the brands are really well known and overall Glymm’s December products just look really cheap.

I don’t know if the pink product was a nail polish or not, I presume it is. It came frozen since it’s water-based and the weather was super cold outside. I think the freezing somehow ruined the formula. Now there’s a chunk of white stuff and the handle didn’t seem to come with a brush. I’m guessing it got stuck in that white stuff

Will edit the post with reviews as I try them out!
We’re already halfway through the first month of the new year!! Ahh, why is time flying by so fast? I hope school hasn’t killed everyone yet. Everyone this term seemed to have loaded up on a bunch of stressing courses. Lately I’ve been wondering if I should make the blog a bit more personal.
Rather than makeup or fashion this month, I’ve been sort of more obsessed with people LOL ::^^::.
She’s currently a model for Style Nanda – an online Korean clothing store. She has a doll face that I am obsessed with. Just like how I was obsessed with Gemma Ward before her retirement from modelling and her weight gain, Jessica Stam, and Angelababy. And her hairrrr ::lovedrool:: ::sparkle::!!! Major hair envy. If you’re on Tumblr and you follow tumblogs that reblog Asian fashion, you’ve probably stumbled upon pictures of her before!
The main actress in Hunger Games! Who doesn’t love her, seriously? She’s so gorgeous, but she’s also so down to earth and hilarious. It’s never a dull moment when I watch her interviews. She’s just one of those girls that I think would be awesome to be friends with.
Tarte // Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer
There has been one product that I’ve been really been liking lately though which is Tarte’s concealer. Went last month to Sephora to see what new concealer I should try and this one had good ratings on the website. It was also one of the concealers the makeup artist at Sephora suggested. I’ll probably do a review on it sometime… soon… hopefully hahaha ::nervous::!!
