Tarte Summer 2013 Collection - Aqualillies for Tarte

The summer collection from Tarte might be one of the most anticipated collections of the whole season, this collection was made in combination with the Aqualillies.  The Aqualillies are an all female synchronized swimming group that contains some of the most lovely and talented women in the water today.  Working in the water all the time means that these ladies need makeup that will stay perfectly in place for every practice and performance, regular waterproof makeup might hold up to a day at the beach but will not stay in place during a swimming routine.  It is pretty obvious that a team of synchronized swimmers would need some very high performance and special makeup items to keep their faces on in the water.  Where the need arose...Tarte decided to team with the ladies and make their summer collection based off of makeup products that will create lovely looks but stay in place through all the elements.  And what better season than summer to test out products that will stay in place at the beach, the pool, during a thunderstorm...
This collection contains high performance products for every facial features and even a great self tanner to keep the bronze glow alive all summer long.  I already see a palette that I would love to own when looking at the first screen shot of this collection and a new shade in the Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye Liner that I want to add to my collection of shades from this product.  A new lipstick formula is also included with this collection and now I am just so excited to look at every product that Tarte has brought out for the summer months!

I love so many pieces of this collection and Tarte edges closer to being one of my five favorite makeup brands with every passing season and product that I purchase from them!  The palette is still my favorite product from this collection and I would wear the shades contained in it all throughout the summer and then into the cooler weather.  With the exception of the bright robin's egg blue eye shadow shade, all the neutrals will be easy for me to wear and will mix well with other shades that I already own.  I might be inspired to try the blue shade in my crease and mix it with two neutrals, I will report back if this happens to occur and I purchase the palette.  There have been so many great palettes this season and I still expect to see even more over the next two months!

My second favorite piece is the combination bronzer and blush product, I love to wear peachy pink blush shades when I have a fake tan and this will allow me to find both a new bronzer and a new blush shade.  I am bit hesistant about using a gel bronzer as I have only ever used powder bronzers before but I want to try this new type of bronzer out for myself.  The other product that I am very curious about is the other tanner from this collection, I would love to use a self tanner and bronzer from the same company that will layer and blend very nicely.  I would love to see MAC come out with self tanner that were in the same shade range as their best selling bronzers!

I also want some of the basics from this collection, I have already touched on the new shade of the Amazonian Clay Eye Liner and I am actually in the market for a new black eye liner shade.  The other item that I want is the Maracuja Eye Cream, I love the Pure Maracuja Oil and would love to see the results of this ingredient around my eyes. 

The only way that this collection could be improved for me is if the lipstick shade wasn't that bright coral.  I wish that more colors were offered because I would love to have a bright berry or pink hue that will last through the elements.  I guess that I can't have everything...
