Rose Red, Blood Red, True Blood!









Now, I’m not so in to the vampire thing myself, but I have to say – this is a pretty awesome kit!  Inspired by True Blood, the HBO take on the vampy trend, this limited edition set from tarte is GORGEOUS!  Now, if you’ve been reading here, you know i LOVE LOVE LOVE tarte.  They are all natural, paraben free, and yummy products and I’ve been building up my collection.  I think I will have to snag these – even though I need more makeup like a hole in my head.

These little beauties are ONLY available for Beauty Insiders, so if you’re not a BI – sign up now!

1.  Eye Palette with 17 (holy cow!) eye shadows, and a sneaky pull out drawer on the bottom with a black black black aqua gel eyeliner, a big ole Lights! Camera! Lashes! Mascara (a personal fave) and a Lifted Natural Eye Primer to keep it all in place.  $52

These are bound to create a very dramatic look.  The eyeshadows look gorgeous and soft, like most of tarte’s shadows.  They are VERY pigmented and a little goes a long way.  The Lights Camera Lashes is a FANTASTIC mascara, that I love.  I don’t know about the primer yet, but the Aqua Eyes liners are some of my faves too!  This is a RIDICULOUS value since they are full size shadows.

2.  Redder than red, blood red, cheek stain.  I have two cheekstains that I adore.  I’m still playing with them, but they last forever!   A little goes a long way and they really last.  Set them with an Amazonian Clay blush and you’ll glow for DAYS!  $30

3.  Rose red, blood red limited edition LipSurgence lip tint.  I am addicted to these!  I have the shiny ones, the regular ones, the matte ones.  The darker shades are true lip tints, and they stay put for hours.  I love those!  A deep dark red is perfect for a smoky light eye and those hot nights out.  $24

Get ye to Sephora!  Oh wait, I think I have a coupon here somewhere…

    I just saw this on Tarte’s website today and freaked out over the eye shadow palette. Normally it’s $48 for a 10 shadow Tarte palette that includes an eye liner. This one has 7 additional shadows for only $4 more, plus a travel sized mascara and primer. What a fantastic deal, and the shades look very wearable with plenty of neutrals. It doesn’t come with a double ended brush, thought, which is a shame because Tarte makes the best shadow brushes and their 10-shadow palettes include one.
    I have to say that the cheek stain is a bit frightening. I realize it will go on as very sheer, but still, I’m not sure how candy apple red will read on my pink skin tone. I’m curious about the lipsurgence lip tint in the True Blood red because I have the original red color and it’s more of a blue-red than a true red. This one looks promising as a pin-up girl red, a la the 1940s.
