Easter FOTD featuring Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint

Hey everyone! 

So today I wanted to do an Easter FOTD for you with lots of bright and spring time colors. This is also my entry post for the "Birchbloggers: Win 4 Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tints!". Which basically means I will be doing a mini-review of my Tarte LipSurgence that I received this March in my Teen Vogue Birchbox. Perfect for me, since I was going to do this review in a separate post anyways and now I can include a cute Easter look as well!

Alright, first the overall look. I took inspiration from a lot of different sources, but I mostly have been seeing some ADORABLE nail art posts from the blogs that I follow. So the color scheme that I chose came directly from them. Blues, purples, pinks, and greens. I wanted something cute and festive for when I spend time with my family and younger cousins doing easter egg hunts and dying hardboiled eggs (My favorite! Yum!) 

Products used: 

Smashbox HD Healthy FX Foundation in F1 applied with Beautyblender
SheerCover concealer duo in Light/Medium
Covergirl Smoothers Pressed Powder in Translucent Medium
Laura Geller Sugarfree Blush and Brighten in Boysenberry

Stila Smudgestick in Peacock on Waterline
L'Oréal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Enchanted

I paired this look with just a basic v-neck t-shirt in a gorgeous light green shade and finished it off with a neutral colored circle scarf and jeans. I love this scarf because the pattern reminds me of that mottled effect that robin's eggs have. I also think it helps to break up the BAM of color from my face and shirt. I wanted to keep the outfit simple and comfortable since I will be running around with all the kids. :)

So on with the Tarte LipSurgence! Right off the bat, I really like the formula of these. These are so moisturizing and non-sticky. I have the color Enchanted which is a pretty berry pink color. These also gives the perfect amount of sheer color with just a quick swipe, but is very build-able the more you apply. (Which is what I did in this particular look.) These also have a peppermint smell to them which I adore in any lip product. The packaging is a chubby crayon type with a twist up bottom which makes application a breeze. Overall, I absolutely love these lip tints. They come in a ton of colors and I definitely want to get few more, but I might wait until Tarte releases another set of them because the one downfall to these is the price tag of $24. Although, if you can get your hands on any Tarte set with a LipSurgence in it, you will definitely not be disappointed. 

OH! I also know one little girl that is VERY happy to hear that Tarte Cosmetics doesn't test on animals either. She's already beautiful, no need for makeup on Luna Kitty. :D

Alrighty guys, I'm out of here. Time for some family one on one and prepping for Easter dinner tomorrow. Hope you guys liked this look and review because I had so much fun with it! Have a great rest of your weekend and holiday. Oh, and don't forget about my 50 Followers Giveaway that is going on now through April 28th! Lots of goodies up for grabs and I am so excited to give them away to one lucky winner! :D

Until next time, 

Just so you all know, cats really don't like their photos taken...imagine that. ;) She kept trying to lick my face and would never look into the camera. Maybe she's aboriginal and thinks I'm stealing her soul, but I just wanted one cute picture! haha
