Tarte fans, the rumours are true, Tarte are launching their incredibly popular BOMBSHELL Collection. Having already launched Stateside (with a different foundation), this collection has been eagerly awaited in the UK.
|Tarte Bombshell Collection July tsv|
Featuring six items, this is your perfect sultry evening collection, that will turn you into a BOMBSHELL……kind of!
Rainforest of the Sea Foundation –
|Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation|
This water based foundation has been a huge hit since it’s launch in the UK. In a beautiful dropper top glass bottle and containing a Broad Spectrum SPF 15, this is perfect all year round. It feels so lovely and light on my dehydrated skin and does not dry it out at all. I love that it has a buildable coverage which is perfect as my skins needs change throughout the seasons. When I need extra coverage I can use a more dense brush, across areas such as my nose and cheeks to cover my pigmentation and then on warmer, summer days, it adds a lovely light coverage when used with my damp beauty blender. It is incredibly versatile. I use about four drops (depending on coverage required) and it always looks like my own skin, but healthier. This bottle lasts me months and I wear it often as I love how it looks and feels so natural, whilst giving me the coverage This leaves the skin feeling hydrated thanks to the 20% water content. Works well on all skin types and is perfect for dry/dehydrated skin.
The foundation is available in some new shades : Fair Neutral, Fair/ Light Neutral, Light/Neutral, Light/Medium Honey, Medium/Honey, Medium/Tan Sand, Tan/Sand and Deep Honey.
Sex Kitten Eyeshadow Palette –
|Tarte Sex Kitten Palette|
I know that Tarte create lots and lots of eye shadow palettes, believe me I am a huge fan and have many of them, but they are not created without reason. They are perfect for chopping and changing your make up look with the seasons and these “mini kits” are a great way to try out new looks without committing to a full sized palette. Containing seven eye shadow shades and a large highlight shade, this is great for on the go.
|Tarte Sex Kitten Eye Shadow Palette|
I am not a cat fan (controversial) but if you are, you will love the black packaging with the gold kitten on the front. It has a great sized mirror which allows you to see your full face and a range of shades from taupe’s, pink, soft browns and navy. These shadows are super creamy and pigmented thanks to the use of Amazonian Clay and suit all skin tones. Easy to use and blend with the beautiful buffing brush included, these can be used as eyeliner, shadow, brow colour and highlight too. A great palette to create a sexy, smoked out look. Don’t forget to tap your brush before you apply the shadows to prevent fall down. Forgive the lack of swatches but they didn’t do the shadows justice
Sex Kitten Eyeliner in Black –
|Tarte Sex Kitten EyeLiner|
As you know I’m not a black eyeliner wearer as I find it harsh on my mature skin, however for those of you that are, this is great to create that perfect cat eye. Lovely and creamy to apply, without pulling or dragging the eyelid, this liner stays completely put until you take it off.

Deep, jet black this can create the thinnest of lines as well as a thicker more soft line using the attached buffer on the end.
Lights, Camera, Lashes –
|Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara|
Yes Tarte! Yes! I make no bones of the fact that this is one of my all time favourite mascaras ever. I am always fully stocked ( don’t forget you must change your opened mascara every three months) of this fabulous mascara. I know there is a Tarte army that adore the Lights Camera lashes 4-in-1 mascara as I always receive great feedback when I write about it on my Blog. This velvety, Amazonian clay mascara, is the blackest of blacks and thickens and lengthens eyelashes amazingly! This Iconic mascara comes in it’s own faux leather jacket which adds a cute, fun, element to the brand. Claiming to instantly increase lash volume by 330% all I know is that when I apply it, my lashes get that false lash look which I love.
|Wearing Tarte Lights Camera Lashes|
Infused with a range of plant botanical’s and waxes, this mascara is amazing at lengthening, adding volume and curling the lashes. The rice bran inclusion plumps up and coats your lashes without making them look thick or feel heavy. Easy to apply, I start right at the base of my lash and give a little wiggle with my brush as I pull it through the lashes, it doesn’t clump and gives a lovely even coat. This mascara does not budge until I take it off with cleanser. Most definitely a big hit with me!
Double ended Lip Sculptor Lipstick and Lipgloss –
|Tarte Double Ended Lipstick and Lipgloss in shade Sangria|
A very pretty double barreled lip product that gives you the best of both worlds with a lipstick and matching gloss in shade Sangria, which is a deep pinky/nude shade. The Lipstick feels very creamy and hydrating on the lips and is a very pretty shade that adds a pop of berry to the lips.
|Tarte Double Ended Lipstick and Gloss in Sangria|
The lipgloss adds a beautiful sheen when worn over the top, and when worn alone is a pretty nude gloss on my lips. It also has a lovely vanilla scent which is not too sweet. Obviously depending on the shade of your lips you will see different results.
The BOMBSHELL collection comes boxed and would make a great gift. I wish it would have been brought out as an Autumn Tsv and with a name like BOMBSHELL include a red lipstick, but hey, that’s just me. Available as a Today’s Special Value on Qvcuk on 5th July for 24 hours or whilst stocks last, the powers that be have told me this is in VERY LIMITED SUPPLY. If you are a Tarte fan or a brand new Tarte customer, this is a great way to try the brand and create a full look easily and using good for you ingredient’s.
