If you’re new to Tarte, this is an amazing way to experience what the line has to offer. Right now Tarte is all about Maracuja Oil and Amazonian Clay and with this set you get to try products with both of these ingredients it is infusing these ingredients into everything they make. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside.
The day this set landed in my mailbox a few weeks ago was a joyous day. Laurie and I played with the Maracuja Creaseless Concealer when we visited Tarte in May and I have been super excited to get my hands on this concealer. In case you don’t know, I have some hormonal issues along my jawline and redness that are the bane of my existence, you can see a little bit of it below. The redness is easier to deal with but the hormonal issues have been hard to hide so the first thing I did when I opened the set was put this concealer to work.
Can I just say that this concealer packs a punch? It packs a punch! It has a medium thick consistency with full coverage that covers a multitude of sins. It blends well on the skin and has a nice, dewy finish on the skin. I don’t know about you but I’m all about the dewy look. Now, the word “creaseless” is in the product’s name. On me, it wasn’t entirely creaseless but it tried its hardest to be. I’m prone to creasing with my concealer within minutes of putting it on with my oily skin. I have to tell you that I was amazed that none of this concealer settled into the lines of my under-eye area when I did my first spot check hours later and then my second. This leads me to believe that if it did this well on me, it will be amazing on you. You know my theory about my skin being like kryptonite to makeup, right?
The Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow and SmolderEYES Waterproof Eyeliner hold up nicely as well. Putting aside the fact that Shimmering Taupe is just a drop dead gorgeous color (who doesn’t love a taupe), the combination of this shade with the Fig eyeliner is magical. Fig’s plum brown on the top and bottom lines with the cream eyeshadow has the makings of a sultry summer smokey eye. It doesn’t hurt that Fig glides on like a dream and wears all day long, same for the cream eyeshadow too. I got a whole work day’s worth of wear out of this without a primer, which is rare for cream eyeshadows to last this long on me. If you go to Sephora or Tarte’s website looking for these shades, forget about it. Both are QVC exclusives until the end of the year.
Here I am wearing everything from the set. What you can’t see here is how pretty the cream eyeshadow and eyeliner are together thanks to how I smile and pose but what you can see is the LipSurgence Lip Luster in Sweet. Even though I love the other LipSurgence pencils, I have not been a fan of the Lusters. Something about them just didn’t work for me but Sweet is a shade that I can get behind. The pop of peachy pink works well with the entire set. And look at the shine! Just like the other pencils, they have the same minty taste and do not dry out your lips. As for the blush, bronzer and mascara, we’re on record as loving all of it. Laurie thinks Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush goes the distance and of course I agree with her, these blushes are a favorite of ours so it is good to see a new shade.
A word to the wise: Tarte will be releasing new seasonal sets in October and February sign up for auto-delivery to make sure you get them!
