There are very few products which I've found that actually deliver on that "lit from within" effect on the skin, but TARINA TARANTINO Pearl Glow Primer Pearl is one of them!
I have to say that just a few pumps of this primer instantly absorbed into my skin and left a beautiful radiant finish to my skin - even before adding any makeup. On days when I wanted a more casual look I simply added the primer with no additional face color. It was very lightweight, creamy and airy in feel.
But under foundation or tinted moisturizer, this creates an especially beautiful glow - just as it's name suggests - but without any greasy or oily build up - and never appeared "shimmery". The color of the primer is beige when first pumped from the bottle, but went on completely sheer and dried clear, so this can be used with all skin tones as well. For added luminizing effect, I also added a bit more on my cheekbones, brow bones and even with my cream eye shadow.
Another great way you can use this is to actually mix a bit directly into your foundation/tinted moisturizer for an equally beautiful effect. This is one of those little beauty products that once you try it - you're going to be hooked!

Speaking of glow...another fantastic product from Tarina Tarantino's line is her Doll Skin Cheek blush. It's very pigmented, and yet has a sheer, buildable coverage that I loved. There is an amazing sheen finish with the perfect amount of shimmer which, paired with the TARINA TARANTINO Pearl Glow Primer Pearl
creates a beautiful look.
I loved the shade Feather, which is a medium coral-pink that actually looked like it might be too light for my skin tone, but ended up working perfectly, to give me a perfect flush of color and a reflective quality that was quite pretty (thanks to the micronized (High Definition) powders). The texture was smooth, finely milled and blended effortlessly.
For those of you who like a little girly "bling" to your cosmetics, and/or are fans of Tarina Tarantino's jewelry and accessories, the packaging with it's pretty crystal accents embedded in the pink and silver casing is yet another quality that will have you loving this every time you pick it up. -RLB
