I usually don’t bother with magnetic palettes but I picked up the Tarteist Pro Magnetic Palette in Wild Animal and I am really pleased. Because this is part of the Pro collection it is definitely better quality, and a more glamorous design. I have had a few experiences lately where Tarte products have fallen apart on me because the glue fails to hold. You can definitely tell this palette is much sturdier; it feels nice and heavy in the hands. I often don’t feel like the packaging for Tarte products really suit ‘me’, but I really like this animal print. I’m definitely attracted more to products that are black and white, black and gold etc. I popped out all of my Tarte blushes and put them in there and popped out my highlighters from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Sweets Glow Kit. The palette is big enough to fill 9 of the Tarte blushes, just to give you an idea of size.
Because it is just a magnetic palette there isn’t much to review but if you have ever been deterred from Tarte products because of the packaging design, this is definitely a sturdier component and would be great for storing Tarte’s awesome products.
Okay so the spring FabFitFun box for this year is actually a really good one and I am super happy with everything I got. The exchange rate isn’t great right now so while it’s $49.99 USD, this box costed almost $80 CAD.
Each box features one of three designs of roundie from Gypsy 05. Roundies are great to use for picnic blankets or at the beach. I was really hoping for the navy tie dye roundie and that’s the one I got! Valued at $50 USD.
There was a bottle of Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave In Conditioning Spray. I love leave in conditioner. My hair is colour treated and when it’s wet it can get pretty knotty. Leave in conditioner makes it a lot easier to comb out. This conditioner works great and smells really nice. I looked it up and Briogeo doesn’t test on animals. Valued at $20 USD
Each box contained one of three designs of Milly Zip Pouch. They’re water resistant clutches great for using as a beach bag or makeup bag. I got a white one that says ‘Slay All Day’ which I’m really happy with! I think I’m definitely more likely to use this as a makeup bag because there isn’t a lot of beaches where I live. Valued at $45
It also contained a bottle of Dr. Brandt Micro-dermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator. You apply, let it sit and then rinse to reveal smoother more radiant skin. Valued at $79 USD.
Each box also contained a box of four Karuna Hydrating Face Masks. These are sheet masks made out of 100% natural wood pulp fiber. These masks are super wet so there is a lot of product. It’s super easy to apply, it stays on your face pretty well. My skin felt really nice afterward. I definitely don’t think it would be nice to use on a regular basis. Valued at $28 USD.
You also got a box set of lip products from RealHer in either Deep Red, Deep Nude or Neutral Pink. Each box contained a liquid lipstick, a lip plumping lip gloss and a lip liner. I got the Deep Nude shade. It’s a really pretty deep pink nude, actually pretty similar to Bestie from Tarte. The liquid lipstick dries matte and it looks really nice on. It applied super smooth and when I first applied it I wasn’t sure it did try matte because it was pretty ‘wet’. I was pretty pleased with it overall. The lip gloss feel pretty sticky which I don’t love. They’re all pretty long wearing though. Follow me on Instagram to see what the lipstick looks like on. Valued at $48 USD.
You also got a set of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes. You either got a light blue shade and a white or a light pink shade and a white. I got the Blue Orchid/Like A Virgin box set. I’m really happy I got the blue, these are gorgeous pastels for spring. Valued at $19.
The last item in the box was a piece of jewelry. You either got a gold cuff or a set of earrings and matching ear climbers in rose gold. I got the earrings and I am really happy with that! These will be so cute for festival season. Valued at $85 USD.
