So I have a bunch of new summer makeup that I am so excited to share with you! I got most of these things about a month ago and have been testing them out so I can give a review.
I will start with the Tarte Cosmetics Mer-makeover vault. First of all, the packaging on ALL of these Tarte products is incredible. It is SO beautiful, durable and practical for travel. I purchased this box from Sephora for $65. The box includes the mermaid skin hyaluronic h2o serum, the mer-mist shimmer spray, and the mermaid waves salt spray.
This box is currently sold out on Tarte.com and Sephora.com. 🙁 But the hyaluronic serum is available by itself and if I had to choose one product from the box to get, it would be that one!
I have been using the serum on my face and neck every night and it feels amazing! It glides on and feels like a big drink of water for my skin. I do notice my skin feels much more hydrated! This is a product I will definitely re-purchase once I run out.
I have only used the shimmer spray a couple times on my arms and chest while at the pool. It gives your skin a sparkle and the mist has a slight scent of coconut (which I love). I think this will be super fun to bring to Hawaii to use when I want to be extra at the pool or beach ;).
The salt spray is really nice to give your hair a little wave and texture. I love the look of beachy hair, and this spray gives it to me! It is a tad drying on the hair (because well, it’s salt) so I try not to use it every single day, but just when I want to give my hair a little something somethin.
I think this box is super fun and a great value for these three full sized products!
How cute is this sparkly teal packaged lights camera lashes mascara and mermaid tail eyelash curler! This mascara is always a go to of mine and I just can’t get over the packaging. Mascara: $23.00 Eyelash curler with mini mascara: $20.00

The be a mermaid and make waves eyeshadow palette comes in a seashell shaped compact and has a mirror inside. There are 11 beautiful shimmer shades and 3 matte shades and they smell like vanilla cupcakes! I did not swatch the matte shades but they are all different shades of rose. I have used this palette on my eyes a few times and I love the colors. It is a palette that you can bring and have everything you need to create an eye look. The options are endless. I wish there was a darker matte brown, but I’m not mad about it :). This is a great palette that is perfect for taking on a vacation and the names for the shadows are adorable! Shell yeah, beach please just to name a couple lol. Be a mermaid eyeshadow palette: $42.00

I also want to talk about the Physicians Formula butter collection! I was at Ulta to pick up another butter bronzer and I saw this box that had the butter bronzer that I know and love, along with a butter blush, highlighter, body butter, and perfume. I decided to treat myself! The swatches are from left to right: butter bronzer, butter blush, butter highlight. I love the bronzer because it its very bendable and yes, BUTTERY and not powdery looking, and the color works really well with my skin, and the smell is like a tropical coconut dream! The blush is a VERY light peachy gold shimmer. I like this blush a lot, but if you have medium or dark skin, it is going to be a golden shimmery highlighter for you rather than a blush. The highlighter is also very light. Its a white shimmery highlight with reflects of pink and lavender. All of these powders are very buttery and blendable. The body butter is nice, and the perfume is OK, but the stars of the box are the makeup products. Again, if you have medium or dark skin, you probably will not like these products, but I personally like them a lot! Butter Collection Box: $29.99
