Wearing Tarte Gifts from the Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection from summer 2012
I’m currently in the throes of fuzzy pre-vacation brain, so I apologize in advance for eny tipos in this post and weird sentences that don’t make sense…
I did two things today instead of the really important things I needed to get done (like packing). 1) I dreaded the fact that I wasn’t doing the things I needed to get done, and 2) I thought about pie.
The Caramel Apple Pecan Pie at The Right Slice
Yes, that’s right: pie (not pi). I was looking online for good eats on Kauai and found a highly recommended place called The Right Slice.
They sell pie. Just pie (and things like pie). In a wide variety of yummy-sounding flavors.
They have savory pies (Classic Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherdâ€™s Pie); spicy pies (Chocolate Chile, Spicy Apple), fruit pies (Guava, Lilikoi, Blueberry PiÃ±a Colada); and rich, and/or gooey pies (Carmel Apple Pecan, Haupia Purple Sweet Potato, Lilikoi Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut).
Thinking about all of that pie is giving me the sugar shakes!
I wonder if it’s possible to overdose on pie. My, my, my, gonna eat some pie…
Sorry, I’m having a hard time concentrating today. I feel like it’s the last day of school before summer…and speaking of summer, have you seen the summer collection from Tarte?
They’re keeping it short and sweet with just six items this year, which is a drop in the bucket compared to their spring 2012 release.
I still see some pretty interesting things…
Primers seem to be playing a big role. There’s a new one for eyes and two new ones for the face — the Clean Slate 360 Creaseless 12-Hr Smoothing Eye Primer ($20), Clean Slate Flawless 12-HR Brightening Primer ($30) and Clean Slate Poreless 12-HR Perfecting Primer ($30).
Thereâ€™s also a new Body Bronzer ($37), a new LipSurgence Lip Tint shade called Sprited ($24), and a $42 three-piece set with an awkwardly long name — the Gifts from the Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection.
Here are pics and swatches of everything, with the exception of the face primers…

I can’t wait to find out how the new Smoothing Eye Primer stacks up to my beloved NARS Pro Prime.
The entire collection is available online now at sephora.com and should be arriving in stores soon.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Well, that about does it for Tuesday. Aside from procrastinating and craving a slice of Haupia Purple Sweet Potato pie, I’m hangin’ in there.
How about you? What was the highlight of your day?
