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.

maracuja creaseless concealer, Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara and Amazonian Clay SmolderEYES Waterproof EyelinerThe 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…

tarte's Amazonian clay 12-hour blush

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.

eyeshadow and blush brushes
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!

Want one more reason for picking up the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous collection? How about a bonus deluxe size sample of tarte’s newest discovery pure maracuja oil? 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!

  1. This seems like a great set! This would be perfect for my trip overseas…hmmm..you guys are bad influences on my makeup addiction! Thanks for the heads up!

    1. I was JUST going to say that. It’s a terrible but wonderful influences haha.

  2. Having swatched this for all ya’ll this weekend, I can attest – this kit is way pretty. And I love that you can do payment plans with QVC. This one is 3 payments of $16. It makes a splurge so much easier!

    1. I wasn’t aware that you can do payment plans with QVC. I love that!

  3. I really like the case this comes in, having one section that zippers completely is great for flat powder compacts or small jars… Hm… This is worth it just for the blush and the cream shadow/liner. I’ve never ordered from QVC, does anyone know how long shipping usually takes?

  4. I’m trying to curb my ridiculous beauty spending a little bit, but I’m not going to be able to resist this kit. Your beautiful swatches convinced me immediately! Going to QVC.com now…

  5. oooo la la! Love this case and all the goodies inside.. I’ve never ordered from QVC, this may just be the ticket that pushes me over! Great buy regardless!

  6. Oh my, I want this, it’s gorgeous and I’ve been looking at tarte stuff a lot lately. QVC is so much cooler than it used to be.

  7. awesome review :D I ordered one too!! Did u just get this in the mail today? How long did it take before u got urs? Mine shipped friday and just wondering when I should be expecting it. Thanks :D

  8. I’ve been trying to save money, but this special is sooo tempting. I have a couple of LipSurgence lipstains and love them. And I’ve heard so many good things about all the other products that are included as well!

  9. Oh my goodness. I am in love! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! This kit could work for fall too!!

  10. I am seriously considering this one. Darn you, temptresses!!!!

    I wonder how it would work with my weird pale coloring. Hmmmm??? Decisions!!

  11. Oh wow, the shimmer apparent in LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Sweet is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l! If it looks that great in photos it must be killer in person. And I’ve never heard of maracuja oil. Leave it to tarte to always be one (green) step ahead!

  12. I want to plan a trip as an excuse to get this kit- how perfect for travel!! Everything is just beautiful – headed to QVC now!!

  13. I really want this! I don’t know if it’s because I am in an impulsive mood, but I read each and every single word with an “oooh…aahhh” mindset @Tyna. You had me at taupe, lip luster, the creaseless concealer….I might take them up on their payment plan just because I can!

  14. Aahh Tarte, how I love thee! What a great set, I use half of the things in there already and the other half I want to try…I will definitely be making the splurge on this one!

  15. OMG, I want this kit in the worst way! Sadly, I just dropped several very pretty pennies on the Tarte True Blood collection. The cheekstain and lipsurgence are to die for…

    Maybe I can persuade the hubby to let me go for it since it’s available with easy pay…but I just bought a Keurig from them yesterday…he’s so gonna say no :( Stupid Tarte and their awesome products…*pouts*

  16. Super LOVE the LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster! It can perfectly fit for any mood for this summer. Light and barely there look here I come. This is what I’ve always want to have on my make up kit. Thanks for a wonderful post!

  17. Just wanted to say I went back and bought this, (just got it today), and it is a gorgeous collection! The colors are really pretty and it is packed with a lot of product…can’t wait to start using it all!

  18. Well – I have this now, and I can safely say everything is amazing. I was impressed at how natural the blush looks. The concealer is very impressive…”creaseless” is very accurate. And: the lip luster is my new favorite thing. (I’m not sure why it took me this long to try Tarte’s lip lusters…consider me the newest fan). I think Tarte did a really great job at coordinating the shades with this one! Seriously, I’m in love.

  19. I also want to share that I bought this (it came a couple days ago) and it’s a really awesome kit for the money. I LOVE the concealer. This stuff is wonderful consistency (thick!) and covers blemishes with just a tiny bit of product. Wonderful. I didn’t know that the smaller brush was an eyeshadow brush til I came onto here again…but I’ve been using it for concealer.

    I love the eyeshadow. it’s a perfect touch of color to wear with some eyeliner. The blush is an amazingly versatile shade that will look good on most skintones and it’s all I”ve been using since! If you order this, you get a small bottle of Maracuja oil and it’s DIVINE. I can already tell it’s on my way to making my skin look and feel its best. Thanks for being bad influences you guys ;)
