The latest QVC collection offers 6 tarte must-haves packed inside your new favorite cosmetics bag!
I always get so excited when I see that tarte has a special collection coming to QVC. It always feels a little bit like Christmas. It’s almost as if your sister or your best friend has picked out the perfect presents just for you. Tarte sets are always full of surprises and never fail to amaze me.
So needless to say, I was thrilled when I received the tarte Journey to Natural Beauty Collection from QVC for review. This lovely 7 piece set retails for $65.94, is available exclusively at QVC, and is perfect for spring.
The Journey to Natural Beauty Collection includes:
12-Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in Fearless — I was already a fan of the Amazonian Clay Blush, as were a number of readers and testers (read our review here). This shade should be no exception.
It’s a bright, warm medium pink with gold micro glitter. It applies like a dream, never streaky or splotchy, and it stays put all day. Additionally it doesn’t look like a glitter bomb exploded on your face. Fearless looks almost neon in the pan, but it shows up on the cheek as a lovely pop of pink. It is perfect for your transition into spring, brightening your face with a subtle glow.
Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose – This is a lovely lipstick, buttery soft and lightweight. Plummy Rose makes a great everyday shade, it’s is a dirty pink is very subtle, natural shade that should flatter anyone. It wears sheer to medium. One eco-friendly note – the lipstick tube is made from recycled cardboard-like material and it seems to be holding up just fine in my purse.
Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush – This brush is unique
and lovely, and features a gorgeous woven fabric zigzag pattern on its handle. I have never before applied foundation with a brush – and I wish I had sooner. This brush made it so easy; the densely packed but super soft bristles help to buff foundation into your skin. I felt like an expert.
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 – Available in five shades: Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, Deep — I tested the foundation in Fair. This foundation is another favorite here at we heart this. Despite this, I was nervous to try it, as foundation usually feels like a mask on me, turns my skin a weird color, or melts immediately on my oily skin. Tarte’s fantastic formula does none of those things.
The Amazonian Clay Foundation feels natural and the color looks like my skin, only better. Plus, it stays put through much of the day, despite my oily skin. When I apply with the foundation brush, I get an almost air-brushed quality look. This stuff can really hide the pores. I am in love!
Lights, Camera, Flashes! Statement Mascara in black – An offshoot of the amazing cult classic Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara, this new version has a more defined brush that dramatically enhances your lash length. The formula and brush combine to bring you a much more intense and dramatic look.
With this mascara, my lashes were fuller, longer, and darker than the original version. I love the new version, but for my typically natural look I prefer the original version. Although, I will rely on the new version for nighttime and more dramatic looks.
One Brow Architect Brow Shaper – Available in three different shades, Fair/Light, Medium/Deep, and Tan; I tested Fair/Light. I have to say this is a very unique product. The Brow Shaper includes a retractable triangular pencil tip, concealer, a sponge tip concealer applicator and a spiral brow comb. I do not typically use brow products, but in order to give a balanced review, I gave it a few test runs.
I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I have a full brow, this shaper helped to provide more shape and definition without looking weird or fake. I suggest that everyone could benefit from this shaper, not just those with sparse brows.
tarte Cosmetics Bag – This lovely and large fold-over envelope style bag can be used as a make-up bag or as a clutch purse. It is reminiscent of the Missoni style and showcases the same woven zigzag pattern as the brush. It is amazing! And will get lots of use toting my makeup essentials in style.
• A number of tarte customer favorites all in one kit
• The overall value ($64.95 gets you approximately $165 worth of amazing products)
• Limited availability; a few of the shades have already sold out on QVC
But do not worry too much if your shade is gone, this collection will be released two more times this year, with summer and fall/winter colors. I plan on signing up for Auto-delivery, imo this set is worth it!
we heartsters – do you celebrate every time QVC releases another tarte collection?
