REVIEW: Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag

Tarte Cosmetics has done it AGAIN with another WINNER with their Gift Sets. This set comes 34 items but I technically count it as 15 and retails for C$71 and is worth C$588! That works out to be $4.73 per ONE ITEM!! If I haven't sold you on it yet, buckle up. If I have... smooth sailing from here ;)

  • Travel Makeup Bag

Amazonian Clay Eye Shadows: 
20 BEAUTIFUL stunning, sleek packaging which divides the palette into four. Each of the four sections has a dark liner colour, highlighter, all over lid, defining shade and crease color. They make it easy by pairing it for you to create SO many looks. The formula on these of course lives up to to the name as it delivers soft, buttery tones on your eyelids. It is easy to apply, not much fallout but again some shades are chalky so blend away! These eye shadows do not crease on the eyelids and i recommend to wear it with a primer so it lasts longer and the colours are more vibrant! 

Maracuja Lipglosses
ADORABLE packaging, small, easy and on the go! None of these come with names unfortunately.. They are however buildable! So you can wear it sheer or opaque! As a girl we need options.. and lots of them!  They don't have a particular scent to them either. 

Pure Maracuja Oil
Easy to incorporate to your routine! Just a few drops of this to your skin and it absorbs it like air! You find a long term effect where your skin looks better after several uses. 

Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment
LOVE THIS STUFF! Totally recharges my big bags under my eyes and moisturizes it. I usually apply this in the AM and Evening.

Amazonian 12-Hour Clay Blush in Memorable
Super long wearing! Looks frosty but its a soft mix of mauve and pink with a plum undertone and it applies with a nice glow. Very flattering for many skin types as well. 

Cheek Stain in Flush
Where do I start with this... Except the fact that I LOVE IT! It is a gel/cream consistency and super moisturizing, blends easy, looks natural and great colour pay off! 

Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara
A lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning mascara. One of Tarte's most popular mascara's and now you can try the trial version! It gives incredibly full lashes but doesn't hold a curl for too long. 

FINAL VERDICT: 
All in all this is a great way to dip your toe into the pool and try out the Tarte Cosmetics Brand! Definitely recommend it! Super affordable and a great Christmas present to your loved ones! This is so versatile and you do not have to second guess about this baby!
