Yesterday for Makeup Wars we talked waterproof makeup.  Tarte was mentioned quite a bit because they have some amazing waterproof makeup products, such as the items from the new and limited edition Aqualillies for Tarte Collection for Summer 2013.

Obviously, if it’s repped by the Aqualillies (who do water ballet), it’s got to be waterproof, and while the whole collection is stunning my absolute favorite item is the Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye And Cheek Palette.

What Sephora says about the Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye And Cheek Palette:

What it is:
A limited-edition waterproof collector’s palette inspired by the Aqualillies.

What it does:
Make a splash with this palette inspired by America’s most glamorous synchronized swimming group! Aqualillies reinvent the classic art of water ballet and mesmerize audiences with their modern strength and vintage beauty. These true Tartelettes—fearlessly powerful, healthy, real women—are the perfect muses for this high-performance, splash-proof collaboration. Now, you too can embrace the energy, grace, and sophistication of Aqualillies with this Amazonian clay-infused palette of six new eye shadows, bronzer, highlighter, and a limited-edition blush all tucked inside a classically elegant, mirrored compact. Developed with the Aqualillies in mind, this waterproof collection delivers a natural complexion with subtle pops of color to create signature looks worn by the ‘Lillies themselves. Powered by skin-balancing Amazonian clay and skin-softening mineral pigments, this eye and cheek palette will help you create showstopping looks both in and out of the pool!

– 0.14 oz Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne
– 0.13 oz Amazonian Clay Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
– 0.23 oz Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Captivating
– 6 x 0.04 oz Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow in Hammock, Bikini, Barefoot, Parasol, Sun Deck, Poolside

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
Amazonian clay is nature’s most perfect ingredient providing total skin balance for better, longer, truer wear. Vitamin E is a natural preservative that also acts as an anti-inflammatory emollient and protects against free radical damage. Mineral pigments are colors and dyes derived from natural minerals that have been known to sooth and soften skin.

Tarte has made the epitome of shadows for Summer-time, all in one amazing palette. You’ve got five amazing neutral shadows with one turquoise pop of color, a gorgeous blush as well as a shade to bronze and highlight.

The shadows and cheek products are ridiculously buttery, pigmented and easy to use and blend. The shadows are shimmery, but not in an overdone or garish way. They’re just so smooth and enjoyable!

The palette itself is a round disk shape, maybe an inch thick. It’s plastic and decorated with an aqua and coral mermaid tail pattern on the front and gold accents. It opens easily to reveal the shadows, blush and a nice sized mirror. Perfect for your vanity and for travel.

This palette is a must-have. It will be lust-at-first-sight and then once you use it you’ll fall in long-term-love.

For the EOTD below I prepped with a thin layer of UDPP. Bikini is all over the lid with Parasol at the inner corners of the eye and then very lightly to highlight. Poolside was used in the outer V and Sundeck in the crease. The liner is MUFE 2L Aqua Eyes and the mascara used is Missha Signature Vibrating Mascara.

This FOTD is almost the same eye look but with more of the teal and also a different liner (MUFE 52LAqua Eyes). I’m also wearing the blush, Captivated, from the palette.

Aqualillies For Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye And Cheek Palette retails for $38.00 and is available at Sephora, Ulta, beauty.com and tartecosmetics.com. Learn about all things Aqualillies on their newly updated website!
