“Energy Noir” = “Energy Night” or “Night Energy.” That’s the name of Tarte’s fall 2015 collection, which has been out for a while now. Thank you, high school French. Or, rather, merci beaucoup, high school French.
Geez…I could have sworn that “noir” meant “night.” Well, someone clearly wasn’t paying attention during vocab in high school French class… Guess who that someone was. 🙂
Energy Noir! You may have strolled by Tarte’s fall 2015 Energy Noir collection recently at Sephora. If it aroused your curiosity, but you’re wondering if it’s worth your time, here’s a closer look at three of the 12 pieces, including the $38 Energy Noir Clay Palette (thumbs up!). I’d even go so far as to call this eyeshadow and cheek palette one of my fall faves.
It’s kind of funny that I’m wearing something in this video review called Energy Noir, because when I filmed it — this was a couple weeks ago at the height of Baby Girl’s first trimester antics — I had absolutely NO energy at all, and as for energy at night? Forget about it. My mom called me one night at 7:15, and I was like, “I gotta go to bed now!”
Haha! It’s so true though.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Tabs graciously granted me the afternoon off, so I’m heading into the city today (San Francisco, the city of dreams and sourdough bread!) for an optometry appointment and some shopping.
There are two big birthdays coming up in my family, so I’m going to look for a small, special gift for someone in The Land of Little Blue Boxes, aka Tiffany. I’ll also be stopping by H&M’s maternity section because, YARGH! — the clothing situation has been kind of a struggle lately. Even my stretchy Zellas are snug, which leads me to ask, “Is it possible to look cute in maternity clothing?”
I’ve probably been looking in all the wrong places, because apparently THAT’S MY SUPERHERO GIFT. Everything I’ve found seems, well…quite tent-like.
Anyway, I saw some prospects in the H&M maternity section online, but I’m hesitant to buy H&M online because their sizes have been inconsistent for me. I hope I can find something in the store that doesn’t make me want to crinkle my nose…
If you have any maternity clothing suggestions, please send them my way! My style is sort of J. Crew goes to a Jay-Z concert.
