    I’ve bought the Tarte custom kit twice now. First time on a lark and was really pleased. I was surprised how much I like their setting spray – UD is my ride or die and I found Tarte’s to be as good. The deal ends tonight

    Please read the comments section of the Staud article. I liked Staud as a brand befor not I am rethinking it. So just because this woman has wealth and class and is frightened by homelessness and scary vibes we are thinking she is cool and aspire to be be her!!

      I guess I didn’t see the homelessness mentions. Sleep deprivation, maybe? I mostly saw the Cher and 70s glam references.
