My newest obsession is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15

About a month ago I headed into Sephora in search of some new foundation. I needed something that felt weightless, covered my sun spots, was waterproof and had sunscreen in it. Without hesitation, the Sephora clerk pointed me in the direction of Tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15. She asked if I’d like help color-matching the foundation, and I let her work her magic. She applied the foundation with Sephora’s Airbrush brush (#55).

To say I’ve been applying my foundation wrong all these years is an understatement.  The Airbrush brush has COMPLETELY changed the way I put on foundation. It literally makes your skin look like you’ve been airbrushed. It is hands down THE BEST way to apply foundation. She showed me the different ways to put on foundation (a sponge just soaks it all up – what a waste!), and the brush is the way to go. Trust me. Follow this link to buy online, or head into Sephora and ask for it. You’ll be so happy you did.

Back to the foundation. I loooooooooooooove this foundation. It feels absolutely heavenly on my skin. Your skin doesn’t feel weighed down, it feels and looks amazing! It’s only $34, and you can also pick it up at Sephora or Ulta.

Transcend into the endlessly glamorous world of MARCHESA where intricate dreams are spun into breathtaking opulence. From every ornate drape to each exquisitely executed detail, Marchesa’s signature touch is as effortless as it is seductive. With an air of mystery and desire Marchesa masterfully creates their premiere elixir, a truly enchanting scent available exclusively at Sephora. One spray will take you to a world of fantasy and imagination that is unforgettable, enticing and uniquely their own.

“Like with our dress designs, we wanted our scent to feel sensual and feminine yet still embrace and celebrate the wearers unique style and sensibility” said Georgina Chapman, designer and co-founder of MARCHESA. “It is the essence of our muse transformed into a fragrance that distinctly captures her in her most beautiful and purest form .”

MARCHESA parfum d’extase opens with light florals, giving way to a combination of fresh and woody notes that create the scent’s complexity and beauty. Iris is the secret to the fragrance’s richness, capturing the delicate essence of its flower petals and the dark sensuality of its precious roots. Complementing the timeless elegance of the Iris flower are the beautifully fresh elements of Freesia and Young Violet Leaves to help lead the fragrance into the heart. Comprised of Night Blooming Jasmine, the heart weightlessly transcends the senses into the sensuous background. Here the Iris Root blends together with Ambrox and Musks, the finishing touch to the sublime composition of this intoxicating and unforgettable elixir. Marchesa’s new fragrance clearly defines their distinct artist vision and transports you into an ethereal world.

With as much discipline, precision and care given to each piece they create, the co-founders of Marchesa collaborated with SEPHORA to develop the latest sculptural representation of the brand. Capturing the ecstasy of a perfect moment, the fragrances’ elegantly designed bottle was crafted by Malin Ericson, Creative Director at Vanessa Stevens + Company to evoke the same look and feel of exotic raw quartz crystal, a powerful gemstone known for its positive energy and abundant healing qualities. Each bottles shape uniquely emulates the natural facets and distinct contours of the raw quartz and features individually set crystal accents that exude the confident and alluring femininity signature to the Marchesa design.
