Urban Decay Backtalk, Tartlette in bloom

Tarte Tartlette 2 in bloom

Hey lovelies,

Another month is drawing to a close, we've had a glimpse of Summer, before the sun has disappeared again, and it's got me in the mood for Summer makeup.

First on my Fav list is gonna be no surprise I'm sure and that's Charlotte Tilbury light wonder foundation, I have banged on about this loads so will keep it brief, this foundation is a medium coverage and gives my complexion a natural healthy glow, love love love it. My eyeshadow palette of choice recently has been been my Tarte, Tartlette 2 in bloom, I got this a while back and loved it but somehow it had found itself at the back of the que in the mornings, but that has all changed the last few weeks I dug this beauty out and fell in love all over again, the shades are super pretty and wearable plus they are buttery and blend beautifully defo a palette worth investing in, in my opinion.

Now onto lips, I vary between wanting a matte lip, or a softer glossier finish depending on my mood, my matte lip of choice recently has been UD Backtalk, a gorgeous mauve/pink shade great for everyday, and the comfort matte finishes are just that comfortable and not at all drying, I really love the Urban Decay lipsticks. When I won't something a little glossier and hydrating I have been opting for Revlon Ultra HD Gel lipcolour, in the shade sand, this product is super hydrating and feels really lovely and moisterising, and the perfect shade for a bronzed glowy look.

Lastly to keep everything in place in the warmer weather I have been using Urban Decay's All nighter* setting spray, this stuff really works and keeps my makeup on my face , which is a bonus!


  1. Love your picks here, I want to try Backtalk so much, it seems to be a lot of people's favourite lipsticks and it's exactly my kind of shade!
