Tarte Haul and First Impressions

I had two packages come in the mail yesterday. One was my Tarte TSV(finally!), and the other was my order from Tarte's website.


What I got:

Tarte TSV from QVC
Smooth Operator Illuminating Serum
provocateur Amazonian clay shimmer powder in Champagne
LipSurgence lip luster in frisky
An extra foundation from TSV in medium (purchased from a Delphi beauty board member)

First Impressions:

Tarte TSV- Love Everything!!!!

 Eye quad swatches

Eye Quad- Mine has a very bad smell, but the colors are gorgeous with nice pigmentation and the compact is made of wood and is nice and sturdy.

 Blush and eye liner swatches

Blush- probably the most gorgeous and pigmented blush of all the blushes I own. This is the best product in the kit!

liner- glides on like butter

 gloss and LipSurgence swatch

gloss- not sticky, nice soft gold shimmer with a hint of peachy pink color

frisky LipSurgence- nice and smooth, no chunks of glitter, nice color

 medium and tan foundation swatches

 medium and tan foundations

foundation- nice and full coverage, the medium has a heavy peach tone to it when swatched, the tan is more neutral. I am definitely in between the shades and need both colors.

 provocateur Champagne powder

 Champagne powder swatched

provocateur powder- When I saw this on QVC, I thought it was the most gorgeous highlight color, and I was right. The color is so soft to the skin when applied but gives the most amazing glow. Can't wait to try this on my face!

serum- I got the opportunity to wear this yesterday when I got it and I loved it. At first when you apply it, it looks like you smeared a frosty eye shadow all over your face. But, after about ten minutes it settles into the skin and makes you look glowy and youthful. It makes the skin feel so soft and dewy. I have oily skin and this did not make me look greasy or gross, just nice. I will be giving a full review after I try it out more.

brush from TSV- Amazing!

maracuju oil- I rubbed some onto my hand and it absorbed right into the skin with no oily feel or residue. will try it further.


These are just my first impressions of everything. I will be trying them all out further and doing a full review as well as some looks with the products. If you have any requests, please comment below. thanks!

All products purchased be ME!
