A Glowing tarte

If you have read my blog at all, or my facebook posts, you know that it’s no secret that I love tarte cosmetics.  I love everything about them, from the cheek stains to the Amazonian clay blushes.

Recently, I was lucky enough to pick up a new kit from QVC on preorder, which has more delicious goodies in it!  This kit won’t be on the air until this weekend, but the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous Collection is – just – gorgeous!

The Glow Collection contains:

What is it: An eight-piece color collection featuring waterproof and long-wearing must-haves designed to give you everything you need to glow your way to gorgeous as you discover the skin-balancing benefits of tarte’s blend of Amazonian clay and nature’s miracle–pure maracuja oil.

With this convenient Auto-Delivery plan, receive your first set promptly, with new sets in seasonal colors arriving in October 2011 and February 2012, for a total of three shipments, as long as you remain in the program.

This kit contains:

  • Maracuja Creaseless Concealer – this is a new product, and is QVC only until next year.  It’s much different than the Calming Concealer, which comes in a stick.  While I like the texture of the Calming Concealer, it really doesn’t provide great coverage.  This new Creaseless Concealer however, is thick and rich and covers it all.  It’s based on the \wonder child of the Amazon, maracuja oil – or passionfruit oil – which is said to have properties that will make you look like Marilyn Monroe.  Or at least they tout it as such.

While I really like this concealer, it is SERIOUSLY full coverage so be prepared.  I ordered Medium because that’s what I wear in tarte foundation, but it might e a touch dark.  I will keep playing with it.

  • 12-Hour Wear Clay Blush in Peaceful, a soft rose.  I currently own three of these blushes and i love love love them.  I have the Glisten, form the first 8th Wonder of the Amazon collection (a previous AD shipment), and recently purchased Blushing Bride and Blissful recently.  Love!
  • Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow in Shimmering Taupe – I haven’t used any of tarte’s cream eyeshadows, I’ve been playing a lot with otehr brands recently.  I’m still trying to work with them, but I really like this one.
  • Amazonian Clay SmolderEYES eyeliner in Fig, a plum brown- WOOO!  a perfect perfect purple brown.  It doesn’t budge!  I love the shade, it shimmers with gold light, and is a deep plummy brown.
  • Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara in Black- this is my GO TO mascara so i’m happy to have a back up!
  • Lip Luster in Sweet, a peach pink-I now own four of these!  LOVE!
  • Blush brush
  • Shadow brush
  • Sharpener
  • Makeup bag

You have the option of ordering this on Auto-Delivery, which will bring you new collection sin October and February.  I always order on AD, because I never want to be the odd man out if I miss a collection!  You can of course, cancel or delay a shipment at any time.  You can also return it if you hate it, and still get the next shipment.

This kit has a retail value of over $150, so to get it at the preview price of $50 is a STEAL.

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…

Tarte


Feeling TARTEy!

Today, I decided to go for an all (well, mostly) Tarte look, using the 8th Wonder of the World Collection from QVC.

  • Mally Poreless Perfection Primer
  • Monistat Anti Chafing Gel on the nose (hey!  It’s cheap and it’s a GREAT silicone primer!)  In fact, the active ingredient, Dimethicone, is the primary ingredient in most silicone based primers.  I swatched L’oreal, BE and Smashbox primers on my hand, along with Monistat.  They are ALL clear silicone primers and all function the same way, more or less.  I will say that the Mally primer is not the best for mineral makeup, but works wonders for cream powders or liquid makeup.  I find that the BE primers and also another fave, the Benefit Primed & Poreless work wonderfully for BE foundation.
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation in Light
  • UDPP in Eden
  • MAC Painterly Paint Pot as base
  • Tarte Shimmering Sand patted on lid and sweeped over lid
  • Tarte Shimmering Plum in the outer 1/3 of eye
  • Tarte Shimming Cocoa in crease
  • Tarte Emphasize Eyes eyeliner in Golden Plum
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Glisten
  • Tarte Pure optic Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Golden Pink
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara

This is definately a great collection, and I can’t wait for the next Auto Delivery in June!
