Hi Guys! Hope you had a great week!
If you follow me on Instagram you know that ive been itching to post this since last week. I did a little makeup shopping at the TARA Launch and i was very happy with the products i picked up.

I posted all about the launch and shared photos of the event and all that good stuff in an earlier post. To check that out click HERE.

So il get straight into it..I purchased:
TARA High Shine Lipstain - NEFERTITI
TARA High Shine Lipstain - KAHINA
TARA High Shine Lipstain - TIYE
TARA Matte Lipcolor - NSA
 TARA Lip pencil - TAKUERE
TARA Lip pencil - ADERE
TARA Eyeshadow Trio- OVIALEKE
LIPSTAINS: These are more like liquid lipsticks. The formulations of these vary in the sense that some  are still glossy after application and some dry to a matte finish. I really like these a lot. Kahina and Nefertiti both dry to a matte finish but they are not drying.They do not settle into the lips and are very long lasting too Tiye is such a pretty gloss. It is a vamp berry lipgloss with a lot of color pay off. I love how it is packed with glitter in it but  not in a tacky way. . There are a lot of different colors and i am loving them all. Hope to get my hands on some more soon.

  I would have liked if the finish of the products were described before you buy so you know exactly what you are getting. Unless you swatch them in store of course.

 LIPSTICK:I picked up NSA and i love the formula of this lipstick. I am a Matte lipstick girl but these go on so creamy and the color is so vibrant.Its like an Amplified cream(forgive the MAC'y terminology) This color reminded me of MAC Riri boy and i was just drawn to it. It brightens up the face and would go with a ton of different makeup looks.Its also wearable without a lip pencil but if i was to use one i would use TARA Adere with this.

LIP PENCILS: The TARA pencils are so cute. When i wanted to start my purchasing these were actually the first things i picked up. I have a ton of lip pencils but no true pinks and purples and i was so happy i got them. They can double as lipsticks too as they are so creamy and pigmented. Love the sleek packaging of them too..

EYE SHADOW: I have wanted this eye shadow trio for the longest time. First time i saw it in action a a makeup artist used it on my friend to a wedding and the deep purple color was just catching the light. I told myself i had to own this. There is a gold, a deep plum amd a bronze color. They look like a satin formula to me. I have been using this since i got it and it is now permanently in my everyday makeup purse and i love it.

WHERE TO PURCHASE: Tara Studio.. Centro Mall Admiralty way Lekki or JUMIA.

That's my review on the products i picked up.. Hope to get some more soon. Does anyone have any of these? What do you think of them?

Have a great weekend guys!
