Tarte Creamy Lipstick Trio

Tarte Creamy Lipstick Trio

I ordered this from QVC and it’s my first time to try lipstick from this brand.

According to QVC:

What is it: A trio of creamy, semi-gloss lipsticks in three universally flattering shades.

Who is it for: Anyone wanting an intensely moisturizing lipstick that conditions and colors for the most irresistible lips.

Why is it different: Keep lips looking lovely with this elegant trio of creamy, semi-gloss-finish lipsticks in shades of Mauve, Berry, and Poppy. They’re infused with a nourishing blend of oils that melt onto lips, creating a beautiful, glossy effect. Color glides on effortlessly smooth, while emollient-rich antioxidants help replenish and moisturize for a purely hydrated pout.

What I like about it is that it is very moisturizing on the lips. I achieved high color opaque lips in one swipe. It lasted quite a long time, at least 5 hours, without eating or drinking. After the color is gone, my lips are not left dry instead they are still quite moisturized. It is very easy and smooth to apply, no tugging involved. You achieve a finish that has a subtle shine that’s very flattering.

Carried Away with Tarte | Tarte Holiday 2012

The Carried Away with Tarte Collector’s Set for Holiday 2012 was the perfect introduction into the brand for me. It has products that reflects what Tarte is all about. Not only is this set perfect for the beauty enthusiast but it’s also the perfect gift to that someone looking for their first makeup set, looking for a travel set or looking for an intro into the brand.

Carried Away with Tarte | Tarte Holiday 2012

According to Sephora…

What it is:
A striking collection of tarte favorites for eyes, lips, and cheeks in a glimmering, gold bag. 

What it does:
Travel beautifully with this impressive collection of Tarte essentials. The all-inclusive set features six eye shadow quads for a show-stopping palette of bold, high-payoff shades in both shimmering and matte formulas. The deluxe maracuja glosses will perk up any pout with a mix of neutral and stunning shades, ranging from pale petal pink to deep crimson. The kit also includes an Amazonian clay 12-hour blush and complementary domed brush to brighten complexions, finishing powder to balance skin, and dramatic mascara for voluptuous, attention-getting lashes. 

This set contains: 
– 0.05 oz Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Adventurous (shimmering rose) 
– 0.07 oz Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder 
– 8 x 0.059 oz Maracuja Lip Glosses
– 0.16 oz Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-In-1 Mascara 
– Face brush
– 24 x 0.06 oz Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow 
– Adventurer bag 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances 
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan 

What else you need to know:
Each purely pigmented shadow is named after a place on the map where members of the Tarte team have traveled.

I think it’s brilliant to have named each of the shadows that way. And it matches the color as well. So for $54 you are really getting a lot of product here.

My favorite product in this set has to be the blush, the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Adventurous. Because of that, I fell in love with the line of blushes. I have bought 3 more blushes since then. You can build then up or sheer them out depending on your preference.

And my next favorite would have to be the eyeshadow palette. You have all the colors you could possibly need in this palette. When traveling, you can take it with you by itself or the whole set. I love that the colors have been grouped according to which shades works best with but that’s not to stop anybody from mixing and matching.

And the travel portfolio? What’s not to love? It houses all of the items in this set plus more. And the brush that’s included is actually a good one. I’ve been using it everyday for the past 3 weeks and I have yet to see it shed. It does a good job of depositing product and blending it.

I would definitely recommend this set to anybody whether you’re looking for an introduction into the brand or you’re looking for a gift, this is perfect.

I got mine at Sephora for $54.
