Tarte Product Review

I love Tarte Cosmetics that's no secret and there are lots of new Tarte products on the market. Sephora (and only Sephora) has the Rainforest of the Sea line and there's some great stuff and some sub part stuff. I will also review some older but fabulous products that I'm hoping you'll try. Sephora is still having their sale so get it soon.

This an amazing deal and these products are generally fantastic and I bought the full size during this weekend's sale. The sample will probably last you a few weeks and I'm giving one away. Check out my instagram account @pinkhairfloosie for details.

Deep Dive Cleanser: ($25) I'm not a big fan of soap on my face. Generally it dries out your skin and upsets the ph balance. This is soft and gentle, which means it can't be giving you a serious clean but I only use it in conjunction with micellular water which does give you a great clean but sometimes isn't enough with a thick layer of makeup. 

Marine Boosting Mist: ($25) Normally I use Reviva Labs Rosewater Facial Spray underneath my night cream and I can't say enough good things about it's hydrating powers and at $8 a bottle this a great deal. That being said the Tarte doubles as a makeup primer and finisher so I've almost used up my sample.

Drink H2O Hydrating Boost: ($39) This gel is fantastic!!! My skin has never felt so tight. It's perfect for summer, light weight and moisturizing bit not greasy at all. Can't wait to buy more but this .25oz is going to last me awhile because it only takes a small amount.

I don't love this. It requires a lot of primer and needs a powder to set it. Once you've done that it looks great but the Ulta exclusive Tarte Hybrid Gel requires less work and has a better finish, and it's the same price. I used Tarte Smooth Operator on top of the Rainforest foundation. Here's what it looked like.

The sample pack is sold out unfortunately but they really are tiny. But I'd spring for the full size. This lipstick is undeniably hydrating and the color is a perfect nude shade.

This is a dry matte formula that I'm not crazy about. The color is nice but there are many other cheaper drugstore matte formulas I prefer. L'OrĂ©al Infallible Pro Matte Lip Gloss and NYX Lip Lingerie are better options.

This is the most amazing deal. The products individually are worth $99. I loved alost all of it. Here are the details.

Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Gloss in VIP: ($24) This is a great product. It lasted a good long while and was a great color. The lipstick alone is moist and pretty but the lip gloss gave it shine and sealed in the lipstick to last for hours. It held up fine against the bottle of water I was drinking all morning. 

Color Clay Bronzer in Pink Bronze: ($30) This is a great blush and an ok bronzer but as part of this deal it's totally worth it. The colors are separated so you can use them independently or swirl them together. 

Double Duty Beauty The Eye Architect Double Ended Liner and Shadow: ($24) This is a good idea in theory but the reality falls a bit short. The eyeliner works just fine but I hardly use a pencil liner and rarely in a light brown. The eyeshadow is difficult to apply and even harder to get more out of the little cap. I can't see it lasting very long either. If you want a quick solution this is not a bad product. I may give it to my sister who spends less than 10 minutes a day getting ready. 

Lights, Camera, Flashes and Lash Fibers: ($21) This doesn't really work I bought the full size when it first came out and I've never been impressed with the fibers. Furthermore they get in my eyes and it hurts. But the mascara alone is a good every day mascara. 

Tarte Chiseling Charmers Deluxe Contour Set: ($24) This is fantastic. Highly recommended especially for the price. Both the contour and the highlighter colors are subtle but not underwhelming. They are creamy and smooth and the blender brush is perfect.

Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara: ($23) This is my favorite statement mascara. It has a huge impact and does not clump or dry out like the diorshow. 

Hope you found something you want to try. Let me know how it goes. And check out my instagram account @pinkhairfloosie for my giveaway of the Skin Savers Sampler.
