The problem with makeup sets is that you rarely does everything in the kit “fit”.
If you are like me, there is one item in that set that you just have to have and the rest of the contents are just nonsense. Either the lipstick is a throw-back to a previous decade, the eyeshadow is a gag-me color or the brushes ones you wouldn’t use on your dog.
Tarte, however, has a new set of makeup that is your key to summer glow—Glow Your way to Gorgeous, and 8 piece set that contains all the essentials (short of a hunky cabana boy) to insure your summer glow is intact. Plus the makeup is long-wearing and waterproof!
What makes this set of glowing makeup even more lovely is that it is available in five different skin tones. Eight full size products for $60 and the retail value if purchased separately is $195
Here is the scoop on the set:
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.
Who is it for: Any woman who desires long-wearing, easy-to-use makeup that will enhance her natural beauty and outlast her busy day.
Why is it different: For the first time, you can discover the benefits of both high-performance natural ingredients, Amazonian clay and pure maracuja oil. Amazonian clay balances, nourishes, and hydrates skin so your makeup wears better and more true. Maracuja oil helps enhance formulas so they are not only brilliantly blendable and soothing, they also improve skin’s texture, tone, and moisture.
How do I use it:
First, conceal any blemishes, redness, or imperfections with Maracuja Creaseless Concealer to brighten and perfect skin. To conceal dark circles, gently dab concealer to the under-eye area and lightly blend.
Using the blush brush, sweep 12-hour Amazonian Clay Blush onto cheeks and blend upward.
Apply Amazonian Clay Cream Shadow by using the Shadow Brush to pat the cream shadow onto the lid. Then blend shadow outward and upward into crease.
Line upper and lower lash line with SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Liner and blend with the smudger end of the Pencil for a smoldering, smoky eye.
Make eyes pop and increase lash volume with Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara. Apply two coats to top and bottom, using a zig-zag motion, moving wand from lash line to end of lashes.
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.
Why I love it:
I am über picky about colors and textures; I can’t say one negative thing about any product in this set. I’m a concealer freak, and the Tan is a perfect match for me. It is smooth, covers and doesn’t crease.
The blush looks like it would be light on brown skin, but it’s just the opposite. It is pigment-rich and gave me a pretty soft glow.
The Smolder Eyes pencil is a soft sexy take on smoky and perfect for summer. I wore this out recently and a gentleman kept telling me he couldn’t take his eyes off my eyes. And being the goofball I am, I said “Oh, it’s my new Tarte Pencil, I love it!”. Needless to say he looked confused… I blended it with the Shimmering Taupe eyeshadow and it was beautiful.
I wear these the Lip Lusters already, and the peach pink is an innocent soft pink—the perfect accessory to smoldering eyes.
Last but not least, the brushes are gorgeous, with gorgeous handles and tapered brush heads.
I was already in love with the mascara—only fat lashes make the grade for me and Lights, Camera, Lashes! gives me fat, flirty lashes.
Pros: Value, color and texture of products is superb, long-wearing, waterproof
