I don’t know about where you live, but summertime is in full swing in my state. Temperatures have been hitting the triple digit mark every day for weeks on end. It’s unbearably hot outside and the only relief I can get is by staying cool in some form of water. I’ve been to the lake, traveled to the beach, and most of my afternoons are spent hauling the kids to the pool. Of course, I still want to look my best while braving the heat and participating in all these water activities. And I don’t want my makeup to melt off the minute I walk outside. Enter tarte…
You can imagine how happy I was when I received the eyeQuatic Waterproof Summer Essentials Set limited edition set to test. This kit contains three mermaid hued, gemstone inspired Lock & Roll shadows in turquoise, citrine, and tanzanite, a travel size Lights, Camera, Splashes! waterproof mascara and a huge mod-chic scarf in complimentary colors. This set couldn’t have come at a better time for me. The weekend after it arrived I was invited on a trip to the lake. I put the waterproof claims to test right away and I have to say I was so pleasantly pleased with the results.
The Lights, Camera, Splashes! waterproof mascara stayed put all day and still looked great that evening. The Lock & Roll shadows really do have some nice staying power and come in the perfect summer inspired colors; a shimmery gold, a light and bright lavender, and a bold turquoise. These cute little shadows are double ended, with a Vitamin E enriched cream shadow and brush on one end and a loose roll-on powder on the other. They are the perfect size to slip into your travel bag and are super easy to apply on the go with the built in brush and roller. As an added bonus, the cute scarf makes a wonderful summertime accessory. Tie it to a purse, use it as a head wrap, it’s large enough that you might even be able to use it as a halter top or a belt. This set contains everything you need for creating beautiful waterproof eyes in one cute little package.
Hi Chicks, Stef here. Sorry to bust in on Tiffany’s post but I wanted to share with you how I’ve been using these Lock & Roll shadows. The instructions say to apply a sheer wash on the lids, then add the loose powder on top to set the color and create a waterproof seal. Used like this, these really vivid colors end up much more subtle. Pretty, but I wanted to keep them bright. So instead, I’ve been concentrating the cream as an eyeliner, then applying the matching powder in the outer corners of my eye and crease. Used an eyeliner, the color stays just as vibrant as it is in the tube, making it perfect for punchy summer color!
