Tarte Holiday Items and Giveaway

I always look forward to the holiday season, particularly because of all the amazing beauty deals available this time of year. One brand that continually peeks my interest is Tarte.

As soon as the holiday items became available to purchase, I picked a couple of them up.

fantastic foursome, statement lips, picture perfect


fantastic foursome: $35

I love and collect every Tarte Amazonian Clay blush, so it was a no-brainer that I had to have these! (I am only missing Tipsy, Blissful and Flush)

These are the same size as the deluxe sample size blush (0.10 oz) that often comes in the smaller kits. You can sometimes get lucky and pick up one as a free deluxe sample.

This collection contains a highlighter, a browner shimmer and two bright shades.

angelic- shimmering champagne
fantastic- soft fuchsia
magic- pink coral
stellar- shimmering nude

REVIEW:

fantastic foursome: Amazing pigmentation as with all of the Tarte clay blushes. I love that the darker color can contour and that you get a highlighting shade. I would only change one thing; I'd make the darker shade matte and one of the brights the shimmer shade for a more complete look.

These come out to be $8.75 each (for 0.10 oz.). Full size is $25 (for 0.20 oz.). So you get half the size for less than half the price... you actually save about $3.75  each by purchasing the mini's.

statement lips: This is a real value for the price considering any one of these would cost $24. I wish the assortment of shades was more varied and that a deep red or another deeper color would have been included, but I'm not complaining. All of these are wearable on just about anyone.

picture perfect: I love Tarte's lashcurler. The construction is sturdy and well made. The refills are only $1. It comes with a mini mascara to throw in your bag. And you get a decorative handle with this cute little set for the same price as their curler always is.

Tarte also released several other sets that I do not have but will show below. They are still on my "wishlist".

eye catchers 6-piece smolderEYES™ and skinny smolderEYES™ collector's set -
smoldereye collector set $39

the stand outs limited-edition best-sellers kit -
stand outs best sellers kit- $25

Tarte - Carried Away Collector's Set
carried away collector's set- $54 (Sephora)


big thrill collector's set- $48 (Ulta)



for the love of lipgloss set- $32 (Ulta)





These sets will be available at multiple retail outlets including Tarte's website. I recommend checking for coupon codes and shipping discounts before purchasing. I always purchase as much as possible from Tarte's website because you get free money when you get to $500. Sephora you get free samples, Tarte gives free samples, Ulta gives free samples. They all give free shipping at a certain $ amount. They all have reward systems- so go with who you prefer. Remember that Sephora will have their friends and family sale soon :)

GIVEAWAY:

I have new and unused deluxe sizes of Blissful maracuja lipgloss, Glisten clay blush and LCL mascara- May add a few more things :)
