I must admit when a box of gorgeous Tarte Products landed on my desk last week, I actually “Squealed” with delight! Yep, I squealed! I think I may have even done a little happy dance too. You see I just LOVE make up, pure and simple. When ever Tarte bring a new product launch to the UK, you just know its going to be big!!.
Where to start? There is so much Tarte newness coming to QVCUK this week and I just know there is something for everyone. If you have never tried Tarte Cosmetics, firstly why not? Hahaha, they are such beautifully made products, With real skin benefiting ingredient’s. Amazonian Clay provides, better, longer lasting wear and pigment, Vitamin E, which is a natural preservative, acts as a anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and mineral pigments to soothe and calm the skin. There has been lots of superb feedback from people with sensitive skin, but also huge buzz from celebrities, bloggers, make up artists and make up lovers in general.

Tarte Energy Noir Clay Palette £30 – This Limited Edition Palette is one that Tarte Collectors really should not be without. Firstly the packaging is beautiful. As always you have the gold coloured inner and edging that make is look really high end, it has a lovely weight to it, rather than a cheap plastic feel and the Vibrant purple “energy Noir” packaging really stands out. Upon opening you really will take a deep breathe at its loveliness….aaahhhhhhh……haha! A fab mirror inside that is big enough to do a full face and then the all important colours. There is a brand new mix of neutral, plum and Smokey shades which allow you to create the “energy of the night” mystical look. The colours include, your highlighter, liner and crease shades and a warm, neutral blush shade.

As with all the Tarte palettes, the colours are really easy to apply, blend and wear. No fall down on the face ( just give your shadow brush a little tap before applying the shadow) and the colour really lasts. I think this is perfect for Smokey eye lovers but also those that prefer a more natural look as you can play with the colours to suit your needs. There are some matte and some shimmer shades and although I am not usually a shimmer person, they sit perfectly within this palette. This would look amazing on all skin tones as the pigment is lovely and strong. A very wearable, everyday palette that comes with great instructions on how to create a everyday or night time look. I always add my under eye concealer AFTER doing a Smokey eye, for a cleaner look, but that is up to you.

The Brand New Amazonian Clay smoothing Balm really was a revelation to me. I wasn’t too sure what it would be like when I looked at it and now im completely sold. This is a full coverage, lightweight foundation that you can build and build without it looking cakey. This is the most creamy, beautiful feeling of a balm yet it is not wet or sticky as long as you blend it into the skin. It is so smooth when you apply it, doesn’t sit in any of those fine hairs you may have on your face, like some foundations do, and contains Amazonian Clay and Hyaluronic Acid. Therefore not only are you receiving full coverage In your chosen colour but also intense hydration. It feels as though you are putting a light weight serum on your skin and is a dream to apply and wear. The included brush is gorgeous, its long, with a lovely weight and fantastic synthetic bristles. The brush is so soft and so easy to use to apply this cream balm. I also used my fingers to see the coverage, great for adding more in certain areas where you need a bit extra, but I found I preferred using my own big foundation brush. Don’t forget to play with your brushes because they also help decided whether you get a fuller or lighter coverage.
This is for you if you want a foundation that you can apply in seconds and get out the door, this is for you if you have trouble finding the perfect foundation/coverage for you as it is fool proof, this is for you if you want brighter, more even skin tone. Just a little tip, I do have noticeable open pores on my face so i still used a primer under this, and it worked well. Play with your products to see what best suits.You will notice in my before and after photos below, how the smoothing balm really corrects my uneven skin tone.

Amazonian Clay tight lining eyeliner black/brown – if you have read my previous Tarte blog (here) you will know how I “raved” about these liners. Paraben free, Mineral Oil free, dermatology tested eyeliners, they are so easy to use and this Black/Brown suits everyone and is perfect for day and night wear. The Liner also has a smudger on the end which I love. You can create a dramatic look on the top of your lid and then a more Smokey look under the lower lashes by smudging it out. These are so soft and creamy and easy to apply even for a beginner, I cannot rave about these enough!.

Limited Edition coloured clay eye shadow quad – Lovely lightweight, portable packaging that can fit in your bag should you need to, this quad has everything you need. Simple, easy, job done. You could quite happily only have this set of eye shadows in your inventory and live happily ever after. Containing four completely universal shades, Classic Cream, Simple Slate, Tantalizing Tan and Breath-taking Brown, you have your perfect highlight, shade, crease and liner colours. Great pigmentation, lasts a long time on the eye and look beautiful.

Lights, camera, lashes, 4 in 1 mascara . I pretty much use this and one other mascara everyday and have done for the past year. I love how it coats my lashes quickly and evenly and gives them a beautiful colour without drying out or making my lashes fall out. This Iconic mascara comes In its own faux leather jacket which adds a cute, fun, element to the brand, however this mascara is no gimmick. Claiming to instantly increase lash volume by 330% all I know is that when I apply it, my lashes touch my glasses haha.

They look gorgeous, like false lashes which I usually wear on a night out. Infused with a range of plant botanicals and waxes, this mascara is amazing at lengthening, volumising and curling the lashes. you will see how long it makes my lashes look in the photo below. It is black, black, black!! Which I love in a mascara and will most definitely take place of my falsies on a night out – thrilled with the results! There is another great kit from Tarte containing this mascara which you can read more about HERE
Lipsurgence Lip Cream in Vintage – Full of beautifully moisturising and hydrating ingredients such as Jojoba Oil and Shea butter, these feel Divine on the lips. They are really nice to wear and I find them very long lasting. This beautiful colour will suit everyone from the palest skin to the darkest as you can build the colour as needed. It really plumps out the lips making them look much fullerI am wearing it in all the photos on this page
In my opinion this would make an amazing starter kit for anyone wanting to try Tarte for the first time as you have everything you need for a full face make up, you can even use the Lipsurgence as a cream blush. I really enjoy wearing these colours and am thrilled with the new Amazonian Clay Smoothing balm as it works perfectly on my dry skin.
