*Press Sample*Hey Guys & Dolls!
Tarte has come out with another great set for the Holidays, and this one is perfect to split up as gifts for other people, or one mega gift to yourself! If you’re already a QVC junkie like my friend Candy, then you know all about TSV or Today’s Special Value which is when a company sells something on QVC for a special price for one day only!
This year’s set is divided into 3 gift boxes:
- An Eyeshadow Palette that even has a Bow inside
- A box with two smolder eyes pencils and two Lights camera Lashes mascaras
- A Box 4 of the new Lip Cremes, which as far as I know is a new formula all together!
The set is available TODAY ONLY for $49.98
tarte eyeshadows have a very silky, smooth buttery texture. They are a only the tiniest bit powdery, but what really stands out to be is how smooth they are- they are so finely milled it’s just incredible! My Faves here are First Row:Playful Plum & Radiant Rosewood, Second Row: Beaming Bronze & Grateful Grey, Third Row: Buttercream Frosting & Pumped Up Purple, and Fourth Row: Peachy Keen and Blissful Brown.
These were swatched over Milani’s Eyeshadow Primer, each give 2-3 passes for smoothing out of the color, except for the one-pass wonder that is Blissful Brown. Blissful Brown is not only one of the most pigmented matte brown shadows I’ve ever used, it’s also the richest, ever. I actually gasped when I swatched it.
Eyeliner & Mascara
Smolder eyes pencils are like a lot of chubby-pencil longwearing pencils that are out these days, water resistant and blendable before they set. These are a bit thinner than what most brands offer, and I really like the little smudger they have on the end, that’s a nice touch! You also get two Lights, Camera Lashes mascara.
Lip Surgence Lip Creme

I’m already a HUGE fan of Tarte’s line of lipstains, so I’m thrilled to see anew formula. Until now, the Matte Lipstains we my faves, but these are just as great if not better! They’re basically a lipstick in a twist up crayon form, and I love the texture!
THANK YOU Tarte!
