Waterproof essentials for summer at a special QVC price!
The wonders never cease when you combine the Green Monday approved, eco-chic brand, tarte, with the deals to be found at QVC. We are still squealing with joy every time we pull out our 8th World Wonder set, and now the duo has introduced another lust worthy kit, the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous collection!
This eight piece set comes nestled inside a slim, shiny deep purple case that’s perfect for travel. And you should get “glowing” soon because right now, and through July 2nd, you can purchase this $205 valued kit for just $49.95. After that, the cost goes up to $60 – still a great deal but save 10 bucks while you can!
Why? Because this cute case is bursting with waterproof essentials to keep you radiant while on the go all summer long. The case has a smooth, three sided zipper so the whole thing opens book-like for easy access and closes securely. It’s all you need for a weekend at the beach, poolside or even in the big city.
The most exciting piece included in this set is the worldwide launch of tarte’s latest; the maracuja creaseless concealer. This budge-proof, yet good for you concealer will not be sold individually until September 2011 (and will retail for $24.50). But you can get yours (choose one of five shades, fair, light, medium, tan or deep) and beat the summer heat with this QVC exclusive.
You’ll also find one of tarte’s most known products, the legendary and natural Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara. This 4-in-1 mascara (that’s lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning!) gives super thick and sexy lashes in a deep, classic black and retails for $19. Here’s a chance to see what the fuss is all about.
Plus, you’ll find an Amazonian Clay SmolderEYES Waterproof Eyeliner in fig, a brownish plum that flatters all. This brand new shade of these smudge-proof, super smooth eye pencils won’t hit shelves for individual sale until August 2011 (retail price $25) but it’s included in this kit! A sharpener is tucked inside the bag as well.
Speaking of flattering, the latest shades of EmpahEyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow ($22) is called shimmering taupe and is just that. This little jar of bronze-y taupe shadow will add polish and depth to eyes while looking oh so natural while you sip a few frosty drinks. And the cream formula makes application fast and easy and practically goof-proof.
Besides the products needed for sexy, smudge-proof eyes, the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous set has fresh, pretty color for lips and cheeks and a glowing summery face. I especially love the LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in sweet, a golden pink. This chubby lip pencil, which retails for $24, is the best! It leaves lips with a soft, pinkish hue with a touch of shimmer and shine and has a yummy mint taste and scent.
In my opinion, the Lip Luster pencil and our next item, make the purchase of the entire kit justified…
What did I tell you? The newest shade of tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush, peaceful, is a beauty! This soft, pinkish/peachy blush ($25) adds just a dab of natural, sun kissed color that never goes too orange or muddy. And just look at that compact – it’s almost too pretty to use. But believe me, you will.
The kit we received for review also included one of the best bronzers on the market and a summertime staple, Park Avenue Princess. If you don’t have this classic, mineral powder bronzer, make sure to check it out (and its faux croc leather compact) the next time you visit a tarte display.
Finally, this summery set contains two tools of the trade, brushes that are made with sustainability in mind. Both the eyeshadow and blush brushes are crafted with bamboo handles, super soft synthetic bristles and love! They are also exclusive to this QVC offer. With a retail value of $28 and $27 respectively, these brushes are worth more than the cost of the kit!

So, if you’ll be lounging by the water or just want to look like you returned from a sunny vacation, head over to OVC for this limited time deal!
