There are so many make up brands that I have yet to try, and Tarte cosmetics was one of them. I had seen so many positive reviews about their products and my opportunity came to try the brand recently via QVC UK.

I happened to be channel surfing and came accross a special offer they had for the good for you glamour set

Tarte cosmetics on QVC

QVC special

The set

This comprises of a clay stick foundation (and foundation brush), a palette called ‘ladies night’ that has eyeshadow, blusher, bronzer and highlighter. There is also mascara and to finish a lipgloss and lipstick combination with a make up bag.

Good for you glamour set

What stood out to me is that the clay foundation stick came in darker colours meaning that I was able to buy it. The range has various shades and is suitable for most skin tones, which is always a plus!

Another reason for buying this set, is I thought it would be a perfect introduction to the brand, as it gives the opportunity to try a variety of their products.

My verdict

Overall I am impressed and I definitely got a bargin from QVC considering the amount of products that are in the set. The total cost was £37.47. However with VAT and postage the total was just under £50. This is still good when you consider that the foundation stick directly from Tarte cosmetics is usually £35.

I would definitely recommend keeping an eye on QVC as they often have special deals.  The usual price for the set is £65, which although slightly more is still reasonable.

Favourite item

I absolutely love the eyeshadow colours, which are very on trend at the moment with their autumnal hues. The colours have names such as ‘selfie’ ‘clutch’ ‘payday’ ‘own it’. I mean what’s not to love 🙂

Furthermore the actual pigment in the colours is strong, which I love (as it means less application). Eyeshadows which require constant application are one of my pet peeves.

…and then we have the mascara. What can I say about this ….the packaging is everything!

The main thing I love about the products is that they look high end, but at a fraction of the price.

Furthermore the quality of the products are good…in fact very good.  Since I got this set I have actually purchased some more make up from tartecosmetics.com . The company is in America, therefore shipping costs need to be taken into account, when making a purchase.

However if you subscribe to their email you are sure to receive special offers. They recently did a birthday special and one of the treats was free shipping. How could I let that offer pass me by!

All in all my first daliance with Tarte cosmetics is positive and I am looking forward to getting to try out more of their range.
