Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Shimmer Dust ($39)

What it is:
A pure-refraction glitter for body and hair.

What it does:
Add shimmer and sparkle to bare shoulders, legs, hair, and décolleté. This luxe finishing touch is made from an Italian formula called reflex, which delivers pure glitter, sans base or binder.

My Thoughts:

I admit it. I have no use for this, but I couldn’t resist buying it! Look at it! It’s so cute and pretty! When the Tarina Tarantino line was launched, this was the product that caught my eye. I had to have it. It’s so vintage and Old Hollywood glamorous. The glitter itself sticks to your body for a fair amount of time. Maybe a couple of hours? Spray it in your hair? It will last about a week, even if you wash your hair everyday. I learned my lesson. The glitter is very tiny and fine. It’s like shimmery, angel/fairy dust. It’s a very subtle shimmer. The pump pumps out the perfect amount of shimmer: not too much and not too little. If you want major shimmer, just layer. Like I mentioned earlier, I have no use for this really. It’s more for decoration and admiring. I will probably use it for those fun nights out on the town. However, it does make a great gift. Imagine if you received it. Don’t tell me you wouldn’t be oohing and awing over it.

Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss Review

Share

Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss ($19) What it is:
An ultralight, high-shine, low-tack gloss that delivers true, even color.

What it does:
Achieve a full-bodied lip look with medium-intensity pigment suspended in this silky, hydrating formula. Special emollients encapsulate water to keep lips supple while plumping spheres work to draw water into lips for a smooth, voluminous effect. An infusion of exfoliant enhances cell turnover to promote fresh softness.

My Thoughts:

I was was not impressed with this gloss. The gloss is quite sheer and thin, and I had to layer on so much for the color to be the same as it is in the tube.  I don’t like the wand/applicator either. It’s flexible so it was more difficult to apply. What I liked about the Gem Gloss is it’s non-sticky and the colors offered are so gorgeously different. I wouldn’t recommend Gem Gloss to anyone. There are drugstore glosses that are better quality. The poor performance was unexpected from a high end brand.

I used Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss in my Spring Time Look: Bold Blue Eyes. I had to layer on at least 3 layers to get the color I achieved.
