Get Your Swag On! I Mean, Your Glow

Please indulge me this ridiculous post title, I've been hearing these hilarious stories about the Soulja Boy hotline and had to work it in somehow. Apparently, if you dial the hotline, Soulja Boy will call YOU in the morning with a wake-up message, exhorting you to "jump on up and get yo swag on!"

Anyhow, I'm here to exhort you to jump up and get your glow on! Tarte Infinite Glow takes a concept that I fell in love with a couple of years ago - the bronzer/gel blush duo, namely, DuWop Bronzerush - and improves on it, adding a pink lip gloss to the compact.

You get a square of Mineral Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess, a square of Cheek Stain in Tipsy, and a strip of 24/7 Lip Sheer in May Flowers.

Tipsy is one of my favorite Cheek Stain shades; it looks super bright and slightly scary in the pan, but goes on sheer and blends easily. It's nice pop of color along with the bronzer (my tip: bronzer first, then blush, or else the bronzer will stick to the blush and look too dark on the cheeks).

The only problem with a powder/gel combo compact like this is that the bronzer particles have a tendency to migrate into the blush and lippie pans, sticking to them. To prevent it, just shake out or blow on the bronzer after using it, to clear out the loose particles.

Oh, and try to avoid dropping it.

Now jump up and turn your glow on!
