Under the Sun with Tarte

Here you go gals!  This is a guest post from Carolyn Pannone, who loves makeup as much as the rest of us!  I will follow up with my own review when my kit gets here.

This is a review of the July 13th Tarte TSV from QVC, the Maracuja 6 Piece Color Collection.  This is available as a one time shipment or an auto delivery shipment for $49.96.

This TSV came in a beautiful keepsake box. It was very sturdy with a floral print in shades of purple and pink. Included with the 6 products was an instruction guide and a generous sneak peak sample of their new eye brightener. In future Auto Delivery shipments the foundation brush will be replaced by a new full sized cosmetic item.

The new Maracuja Miracle Foundation is in liquid form and comes in fair, light, medium, tan and deep. I am on the lighter side if medium and I found this foundation very forgiving. It blended in easily and offered light/light-med coverage. I believe these foundations will run a bit on the light side, as do most Tarte foundations.


The dual sided ModernEyes Waterproof Cream Shadow/Liner Duo in Plumberry/Plum Brown was a deep purple. I did not see any red in it. The products glided in smoothly and had great staying power. The shadow had a lovely shimmer.  The eye products have a long staying power and set well.  After 30 seconds of vigorous rubbing, they didn’t budge!


The Gifted Amazonian Clay SMart Mascara tube is huge!  The brush is full and did a good job of both elongating and volumizing my lashes.
The Maracuja Oil in a travel rollerball comes in a convent roller ball. Great for touch ups on the lips, eyes and cuticles in the go.
The lip surgence in Smitten is a shimmery pink without being glittery. It has a built in sharpener in the cap, which is new for this product.

The sample of eye brightener was a great
 addition. It instantly brightened my undereye area. At .5fl oz, it is the size of most full size eye creams.

The included brush is ok. I am glad we will only get it in this shipment. I prefer to apply foundation with my fingertips, and will re-purpose this brush.


Sounds like a great kit!  I can’t wait to get mine and check it out for myself!  Thanks Carolyn for your review!
