BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Tarte

by Christina



WHY I LOVE IT...

I really didn't know much AT ALL about Tarte until about 3 years ago when I stumbled upon a small sample I had gotten and had for some time with another purchase. I had no idea that it would begin a new obsession and makeup brand collection! I now how more than I probably should :) but then again... a woman never can have too much makeup now can she?! 

The samples I ended up trying were both deluxe-sized samples of the Lip Surgence Lip Gloss and the Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder and I was actually very impressed with both. I'm super pick when it comes to lip gloss and this one has staying power, feels nice on the lips, and tastes good! The finishing powder just leaves such a nice, silky finish on your skin you can feel and see an immediate difference. I really don't need any face powder at all when wearing this to set my concealer/base makeup.

TARTE PRODUCTS I LOVE...AND USE!

TARTE Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow $28 This stuff if FOOL PROOF...I have always had difficulty I felt in getting my brows "just right"..and then I found this product. It comes with a fantastic brush and it's a breeze to apply! It doesn't really look like there's much, BUT so far I've had a year...and barely made a dent and I use daily! The packaging is a plus too w/a screw-on top and glass container so you are able to keep the gel from drying out with no problems.

TARTE Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder $32 I have a full-sized version of this product....BUT I've yet to use it as I still have the sample size to finish first! I also use this daily and its great for touchups to control oil and shine where you don't want it. It can be applied with any brush, but I use a large powder brush to apply.

TARTE Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment $38 I have been using this for a few months now and I have definitely noticed a difference in my under-eye area. I really like that when I put it on, it not only has an instant effect in calming down the tired eyes look, but it will also make a HUGE difference when I get up in the am/overnight. I have a common issue that many other women have: dark circles and this product is one of the few things that although it doesn't eliminate them completely, it DOES greatly improve the overall look and appearance of that area around my eyes :)

TARTE Amazonian Clay Double Detox Exfoliating Facial Mask $38 LOVE...LOVE...LOVE...this mask. It's hands-down one of the best I've used and I've tried a LOT of cheap vs.expensive and different brands and this is the BEST one I've found. It has a great formula that leaves a terrific, smooth feeling once you've used! It does NOT take much either and can be left on for about 5 mins. as a mask and then rinsed off. It also has exfoliating beads too so it's great for skin resurfacing and bringing out impurities!

TARTE Cheek Stain $30 I have several of the colors in this stain and I really do like switching it up and mixing them as well! They are super easy to put on for a cheek stain and although it really does NOT appear as though there is much product, a little goes a really long way with this item! I've been able to put my full-sized stains to the side as I still have plenty of several different deluxe sample versions!
