As you know, Tarte was super-generous with their 2013 Holiday Collection. So, this article rounds up the last 5 sets I received. And if I wasn’t already a lover of the brand — after seeing the performances of these products — I sure would be one now!
AMAZING long-wear blushes, mascaras, eyeliners, lippy’s and facial oil at affordable price points for some holiday cheer!
Thoughtful Treasures Best Sellers Set ($19.00) is a must-have! Tarte has taken their best-selling products and turned them into charming deluxe sizes, taking the guesswork out of giving. Maracuja Oil, Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Thankful and LipSurgence (TM) Skintuitive Lip Tint deliver a radiant and well-rested appearance.
What I loved about the LipSurgence (TM) Skintuitive Lip Tint (in Energy) was that it looked clear at first, yet, when applied, infused with my skin’s natural pH and delivered a customized shade of pink. Each person’s pH is different, making it a truly personalized product.
Next was the Stop & Stare SmolderEYES (TM) Liner & Lash Set ($39.00), which features their Amazonian clay-infused collection of SmolderEYES (TM) and Skinny SmolderEYES (TM) Waterproof Liners in limited-edition and best-selling shades.
There are 5 liners in total: best-selling Onyx, NEW Azurite Green and NEW Purple Garnet. The SmolderEYES (TM) come in NEW colors: Taupe and Rose Gold. The set also includes a deluxe Lights, Camera, Flashes (TM) Statement Mascara that features a custom-engineered, dual-molded brush, which is said to deliver a 752% increase in lash volume.
A set you can find exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com ONLY: Clutch The Spirit 8-Piece Lipgloss Set and Clutch ($32.00). Eight deluxe Maracuja Lipglosses and a hot-off-the-runway Chic Clutch comes in this holiday set.
The 8 colors included are: Spirit (light pink), Dash (hot pink), Laugh (nude), Play (watermelon), Vixen (peach), Dance (cherry red), Sing ( shimmering red) and Star (deep berry red).
All shades are NEW and drench lips in pure moisture with mega-watt shine; they are all infused with pure maracuja oil to provide your pout with a healthy dose of nourishment that also delivers hydration for a fuller, more plumped-up appearance!
More from Tarte! Off the Cuff Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette & Bracelet ($42.00), exclusively sold at Sephora and Sephora.com, offers you two gifts in one!
This is Tarte‘s first-ever blush palette and it comes with a range of 5 universally flattering shades to match any mood or outfit. Infused with skin-balancing Amazonian clay, these nutrient-rich blushes leave a flawless finish that lasts all day (and night) long.
The five shades included in this palette are Dazzled (soft rose), Dollface (light pink), Park Avenue Princess (TM) (bronzer) and 2 new limited-edition shades: Darling (nude melon) and Crave (pink peach). I have been wearing Amused for years, yet can easy wear any of these shades on a daily basis. I think this makes for a great holiday gift, as it combines beauty and fashion!
Boy, do you get a deal (with a retail value of $490.00!) with this wonderfully useful The Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag (exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com) for just $ 59.00!
It is overflowing with beauty essentials to create countless looks — the sky’s the limit to the possibilities. You can choose to go subtle or opt for dramatically over-the-top bold eyes and lips. It’s all in your hands, literally!
Hidden inside this travel bag is a removable palette with 20 well-coordinated, full-sized, Amazonian Clay Eye Shadows in new, exclusive shades. Each is named after a special gift one of the Tarte team members has received over the years (I used Steph’s Pearls, Jess’ Storybook, Erica’s Dollhouse and Meredith’s Hula Hoop — all from the bottom left quad).
Nicole’s holiday look is complete!
Also tucked inside are 5 travel must-haves in deluxe sizes, so you can always have them by your side: Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in a NEW shade (Flush), Maracuja Oil to replenish the skin, Maracuja C Brighter (TM) Eye Treatment to refresh and renew tired eyes and Lights, Camera, Lashes (TM) 4-in-1 Mascara for a bombshell boost! That’s not all! You also get 8 Mini Maracuja Glosses that span the color wheel to ensure all skintones are covered.
All beautifully packaged, so it is wrapped and ready to gift! EXCLUSIVELY at Sephora and Sephora.com, this collection has been one of my favorites. It covers so many beauty areas making it a top gift for Holiday 2013!
