Rise and shine, morning glory. Can we talk about clay? — as in Amazonian white clay (not Aiken)? Tarte’s new emphasEyes Shadow/Liners ($22), an entirely new product line released for summer, come in five shades — black, brown, indigo, plum and bronze — each made with something Tarte refers to as micronized Amazonian white clay.
Tarte claims it works wonders by moisturizing the skin while improving elasticity (among other things).
I just started wearing the Indigo one. It’s a deep shimmery blue with a rich, creamy texture (kinda reminds me of my beloved Benefit Creaseless Creams).

So far I’ve only used Indigo as a liner, and in that respect I’m on the fence. It takes at least three layers to build it into a solid line of color. As for how well it resists water, I’d call it okay (it starts to smudge a bit after only a few hours). That is to say, I wouldn’t use it to go deep sea diving. Who knows — maybe I got a wonky pot…
LOVE the color, but for $22 I wish it lasted longer. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
