Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’re excited for the wonderful weekend ahead!
I’ll be taking a little road trip to Portland, Oregon for one of my besties’ bachelorette party. More than anything I’m looking forward to spending time with my best friends since it’s been harder meeting up as we’ve gotten older. I am a bit sad to leave behind Hubs- this will be the longest we’ve ever been apart since we’ve gotten married.
Speaking of Hubs, I finally got a chance to take a photo of his
hilarious horrible tan line from waiting in line to meet Will Ferrell last week! Too funny!
I know I talk about this all the time but I realize that I’ve never done an official review for it! I’m talking about my holy grail tinted moisturizer, Tarte Smooth Operator!
Here’s how Tarte describes it “a weightless formula is no lightweight: packed with skinvigorating™ ingredients this tinted moisturizer will keep skin looking and feeling naturally smooth.”
And my Tarte Smooth Operator review? I use Tarte Smooth Operator (in Agent 04) almost daily and have been using it for the past 2 years. What I love about it is that it’s so light-weight but gives me just enough coverage to really smooth out my complexion especially the pores on my nose. It never feels heavy or cakey on my face nor does it ever look it. Also, it does not turn orange on my face like Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer does due to the oxification. The SPF 20 also gives me peace-of-mind that my skin isn’t out in the sun without any kind of protection.

I absolutely love this tinted moisturizer but if I could make a couple tweaks it would be increasing the SPF level, making it medium coverage while keeping it lightweight and also taking out the sparkles.
Oh the sparkles- once in a while I see little sparkles in places they shouldn’t be like above my lip or on my chin, haha. I wish they’d take out these little tiny sparkles and keep the formula matte. Maybe it looks pretty when they catch the light which is awesome for the summer but it could be a little weird when your inside especially in the winter time.
I wonder if their Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation is what I’m looking for?
I’ll have to give it a try soon but I don’t think I’ll ever stop using my Tarte Smooth Operator!
Hope you all have a BEAUTYFULL weekend! I’ll try to snap lots of photos in Portland for you!
