A couple of weeks ago I had racked up so many points at Sephora that I was able to take home a sample kit full of Tarte products – you can imagine my excitement! Two of the samples have since turned out to be my go-to fall products and I am planning on purchasing them when mine run out.

1. Smooth Operator Illuminating Serum– I have mostly been using the illuminating serum as a highlight on my cheeks and brows for a subtle effect, but it can be used all over to give a dewy, fresh faced look. I am usually not a “shimmer” girl, but this brightens my face just enough to take away the dullness winter always brings.

2. Mineral Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess- I have been loyal to Nars bronzer for a couple of years, but I have finally found a rival. This bronzer is so subtle and truly gives a natural look, which I think is hard to come by.
