After the Tarte UK launch event for QVC last week I couldn't contain myself and had to give you a little news post. Now I've had time to try the samples I was given at the event and want to give you the full low down as I have found some real goodies.
I was so excited to receive another sample of Lights Camera Lashes Mascara* (£14.40), as I have been contemplating buying one from the US after falling in love with the product towards the end of last year. You can see my previous review here, but - it is such a fab mascara, thickening and lengthening in super-cute packaging which washes off SO easily. I could happily never have another mascara...I've even converted fellow blogger Gemma from This London Life to be a fellow obsessive.
My next fav product is Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush* (£26.50) in fearless. At the launch, on of the Tarte makeup artists popped it onto my cheeks and informed me that it was highly pigmented, so, when I tried it for myself, I double checked I'd removed the excess from my brush. However, I didn't end up looking clown-like at all, so it isn't a blush to be scared of and you can layer it up to get the intensity you are after. I think what she meant is the pigment doesn't fade, as I was rocking the blush until bedtime, which I don't find happens with most. The fearless shade is also super flattering and I think it would perk up pale skin tones and look cute with a tan too.
I am also loving the Amazonian Butter Lipstick Trio* (£20) which have butter in their name for a reason, as they are super moistening. They also contain mint which gives a slight tingle to the lips and gives a fresh aroma. Normally I find my favorite shade in a set and the others get left behind, but I still can't decide which I like the most, so am currently alternating between all three..
Maracuja Oil* (£29.16) is the final item I've tried out, which promises to deliver 'harmony and moisture for firmer, brighter, smoother-looking skin' I have only used it twice, as an evening moisturiser, as I'm not a fan of facial oils during the day, and this one is on the heavier side. However, the packaging is cute, with the bottle being presented in a bamboo box, which looks very cute in my bathroom. The button on the lid of the bottle is a neat way of dispensing the oil. So if you are a fan of oils for your complexion, it might be nice to try this one out.
There are other products in the collection which launches on QVC on 28th March (at 2pm and 6pm) which I can't wait to try - the BB cream (£29.50) and the beautiful Sultry Sunset Eye Pallet (£24) are on my shopping list. Form an orderly que ladies...
