So Tarte had an offer on recently where you got six full sized items and a makeup bag for $69. I didn’t need any of these items but I struggle to resist these kinds of offers! Read on to find out what I got…
Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation
I really like drugstore foundations with this type of giant doe foot applicator so I was intrigued to try this. I got the hydrating formula because I don’t usually get on with matte and I made myself get a shade that looked slightly too dark because I always seem to get foundations that are too light for me. I like this so far but I’m not blown away by it.
Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette
This is a really cute travel palette. On first impressions, they are a bit powdery and the contour/bronzer shade looked a bit muddy on me but I will give it a proper test before I make my mind up.
Amazonian Clay 12 Highlighter in Stunner
I didn’t need a highlighter but I love their blushes so I wanted to try these too. The formula of this verges slightly too far on the glittery, shimmery side than I usually prefer and the shade is pretty similar to others in my collection but I’m still happy to try it out more.
Clay Pot Waterproof Shadow Liner
I’ve never used a gel liner before. I don’t really use eyeliner at all but I had a go with this and it was pretty easy. I also thought this would be great for costume makeup but I’m not sure how long it will last before it dries up.
Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara
I bloody love Tarte mascaras. I haven’t tried this one out yet because I have way too many mascaras open already but I adore the original lights, camera, lashes so I’m hoping I will love this.
Color Splash Lipstick in Vacay*
This item was sadly missing from my package. I got a £9 refund for it so I’m not too concerned because I wasn’t all that bothered about trying this but this is the second time Tarte have missed something from my parcel. The first time they refunded my whole order so can’t really complain!
I don’t normally care much for freebie makeup bags, or any makeup bags really since I only use them for travelling but I have to say I really like the sequins and flamingo design on this one.
Let me know if you’d like to see a full review on any of the products mentioned in the comments.
