A five piece lip gloss set that’s nothing short of divine!
I heart tarte (I also heart rhyming). Year after year, they continuously get it right, especially when it comes to holiday gift sets. I’ll be perfectly honest, I tend to purchase my fair share of their full-price single items, but the bulk of my tarte purchases are due to irresistible holiday gift sets. They’re jam-packed with tons of beauty goodies, usually in limited edition shades and all for a fraction of what you would pay on an individual item.
Exclusive to Sephora and QVC, tarte brings us the Girl Meets Gloss gift set containing 5 full-size Maracuja Divine Shine lip glosses for the low, low, insanely low price of $34.50 at QVC ($36 at Sephora).
To put it in perspective, ONE Maracuja lip gloss retails for $21. That means you’re getting $105 worth of product for about 35 bucks. You just can’t beat the value. I’m a bargain hunter, and tarte holiday gift sets are always in my crosshairs.
This latest gloss set includes 5 shades exclusive to this limited edition set:
Bubbly – nude shimmer with just a hint of pink
Curious – light yellow pink shimmer
Preppy – bright pink creme
Chic – dusty rose creme
Sparks – bright cool pink creme
As with regular Maracuja Divine Shine glosses, all feel buttery on the lips, leaving lips feeling soft and moisturized. They also contain Vitamin C and Maracuja oil, which are super-powered nutrients for your pout.
The smell and tingle of peppermint oil invigorates and I think the tingle made my lips plump up a little bit, which was welcome to me because I am allergic to most standard lip plumpers, unless they are peppermint-based. Woo to the hoo, y’all!
I will say, the shades included in this set are on the very sheer side and these glosses seem to require frequent re-application, but with the posh, limited edition golden Ikat pattern on the tube, you kind of feel like showing this off a bit and don’t mind whipping these out of your purse to touch up.
• You can’t beat the value of this set. You. Just. Can’t.
• Limited edition shades available only in this set. I’m a sucker for limited edition shades…*sighs dreamily*
• I wish these were a bit more pigmented and it included a darker shade or two
• Limited edition shades available only in this set. If you’re like me and find a shade you can’t live without, you’re going to either have to stock up or accept that one day, you will run out of your precioussss ~ said like Gollum because I’m a nerd.
Am I the only other tartelette out there that stalks tarte’s holiday gift sets and swoops them up the second they become available? We’re talking, I pounced on their holiday gift sets before Halloween had even passed…I think I should probably feel shame, but all I feel is pretty.

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby, an obscenely big-eared dog, and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. She also has an obsessive love of Tom Selleck’s moustache that is, quite frankly, alarming.
