I-Really-Wasnt-Planning-To-Buy-This Sephora Tarina Tarantino Haul

Today I was out at Whole Foods with Tyler, le BF, which happens to be really close to Sephora. Since it’s winter time, we have been using my favorite lip balm of all time, Jack Black Lip Balm, like it’s going out of style. I wanted to grab another one just for him, because he keeps stealing mine and then they get lost (as all lip balms tend to do) and since he is leaving for AZ on Friday (the boy is DRIVING. 16 hours. he’s crazy!) I figured I should just get him one.

Usually when we go to Sephora, he is asking me every 2 minutes if it’s time to leave yet. He’s not a good shopping buddy in that aspect, that’s for sure, but this time was different. I went straight for the Jack Black display, and he starts saying “Did you see, they sell Tarina Tarantino here! Oh look, you have that MUFE palette!” (yup, he pronounces Makeup Forever “moo-fee”) and so on. He practically dragged me to the Tarina display, which I have looked at a few times but never bought anything from. I used my VIB Giftcard on Saturday online, and they were sold out of the only palette I was interested in, the Aurora Violet Storm Palette.

OF COURSE, my Sephora had it in stock! Thanks to Tyler, I walked out with three things I had no intention of getting. Didn’t expect that to happen :)



Tarina Tarantino Jewel Shadow Palette in Violet Storm
I clearly have been missing out on the awesomeness of Tarina Shadow Palettes. These shadows are super velvety smooth, have great color payoff and are really fun colors :) I had a hard time picking out one! Ultimately chose this one because Tyler and I liked the way it looked on the model for this collection.


Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure in Nude
I’m actually a little mad I didn’t know about these, and even more mad that they photograph like crap! I literally gasped in the store when i swatched these.. they are SOOO sparkly. I was debating getting this one and Crystal, which has a more white sparkle to it. The photos don’t do this justice. I cannot waaait to use it all the time!!


sephoratarinaTarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Liner in Glitter Mist
I have never had a pink opal glitter liner! I looove the way this looks plain and over black (it looks WAY more hot pink in person!) I almost bought Black Diamond, and probably will in the near future, because its crazy pretty too!


So there you have it, unintentional haul! :)

    I can’t wait until “moo-fee” catches on!

    1. Leesha says

      lol! he’s been calling it that for as long as I can remember, simply because he ALWAYS sees it shortened as MUFE. I’m pretty sure if I called it Makeup Forever he wouldn’t know what I was talking about

    2. Cynthia says

      This is so sad and embarrassing but I totally call it that in my head anytime I see it. LOL

    3. Laina says

      I always say muffy but I think I like moo-fee better. :)

    Her stuff is really gorgeous!! I want the blush palette so badly. I might have to invest in the eyeshadow now too. Oh my.

  5. Laura says

    All the items are so pretty! Love the holo packaging, not to mention the crazy nude glitter, haha!

    1. Leesha says

      I’m so bummed its not showing even a quarter of the sparkly awesomeness!

  6. Kimberly says

    Those shadows look so pretty! :) Your boyfriend sounds like my hubby, tehe :) Fortunately, our only sephora is in the mall so he can go look elsewhere. Although he does enjoy looking at all the cologne in sephora… :)

  7. Cassy says

    moo-fee is just cracking me up. I’m sure I do the same to other acronyms, though, can’t blame the boy for trying!

  8. audra says

    i loved Tarina Tarantino displays, and my husband discovered her Sparklicity sparkle dust atomizers for me… and now i want ALL HER SPARKLY STUFF!!!! Thank you so much for swatching more of her sparklies!!! =D

  12. Pamela almeida says

    Wow I want those liners! I can’t believe I was just there saturday and missed this item! I will definitely be going back.

  13. yoshimi says

    Wow, I usually ignore TT stuff, and I was just at Sephora a couple hours ago! The shadows never really dazzled me, but seeing them swatched totally changes the ballgame. That cobalt blue right in the middle is SICK! And that glitter eyeliner… are you kidding me? How the hell did I miss this?


  14. Molly says

    I like it when bf’s are supportive of their girls wanting to get dolled-up. :) Mine can’t stand shopping with me, let alone go in Sephora, ha ha! He did go in with me to see the Tokidoki display, since he knows I like it so much.

    I really like that eyeshadow palette too! I have a Maybelline one that has a similar blue…(which I bought in a weak moment…instead of sticking to my guns about cruelty-free makeup)

    That eyeliner is phenomenal. I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to wear hot pink, liner…I might be a little old and pale for it, Lol, but the black might be right up my alley!

  15. Jennifer Huang says

    LOL, I love how your bf calls it moo-fee XD

    Also, i know this is silly, but you meant plain not plane right? >.<

  16. Riti Chetty says

    ugh another awesome brand that isn’t available in Australia!!! can’t wait to see you use these in some new looks, Leesha!

  17. Kissy says

    Now I want to buy that palette! The colors are so much more vibrant than in the palette, love the color choices too!!! Very practical for me!

  18. Michelle says

    Oooh shiny. That’s funny that Tyler knows makeup by name brand. When I get excited about makeup and show my boyfriend he’s like.. yep… it’s makeup..
