Happy Monday, loves, and welcome back to a new week! We’re kicking it off with a stellar sale, and my inner beauty junkie is jazzed!!
One of my go-to beauty brands is having a huge sale… yes ma’am, tarte’s Tiered Sales Event is here! Save 20% off 1 item, 25% off 2 items, and 30% off 3+ items with code YAY!
I’m a long-time fan of tarte products… in fact, it makes up half my makeup cabinet! They’re known for their high pigment and incredible coverage (plus, the yummy smell!), but they’re also a clean, vegan, and cruelty-free brand made with high-performance naturals. The team at tarte formulates all of their products without parabens, phthalates, or sulfates.
I rummaged through my makeup drawers, and no surprise to find it full of tarte! To help you take full advantage of this big sale, I narrowed down my top picks in each category.
tartelette in bloom clay palette | tartelette toasted palette | fake away eyeliner | maracuja juicy lip | color splash lipstick | creaseless concealer | quickie blending sponge | timeless smoothing primer | big ego brow & root camo kit
tarte is known for their gorgeous shadow palettes, and I’ve been a fan since my friend and makeup pro, Suzie Moldavon, introduced them to me! They’re highly pigmented, long-wearing, and arranged for easy application. Plus, they smell amazing! (For real, have you ever smelled tarte shadow?!)
There are tons to choose from, but tartelette in bloom and tartelette toasted palette are definitely among faves. I adore the new tartlette Juicy palette, too, but that sold out the week it was released! Fingers crossed for a restock soon because I have some fun makeup looks to share with y’all.
And do I even need to tell you about the fake awake pencil?! The best trick for brightening eyes and balancing redness, I apply it to my lower waterline every day. It’s beautiful in the corner of your eye and brow bone, too. If you only buy one thing, let it be fake awake!
The big ego brow & root camo kit is a recent find, and my roots are happier for it! This powder fills brows, covers grays and roots, fills in thinning hairline gaps, and even works with patchy beards!
The Amazonian clay formula blends seamlessly and adheres to hair and skin for long wear that is waterproof and wax-free (but not sticky or stiff). I use the larger angled brush to better blend my roots between highlights, and the small precision brush for filling in my brows.
The timeless smoothing primer is unlike any I’ve ever tried. It’s truly like a spackle for pores, smoothing and filling them for a flawless finish!
If you need a bit more coverage with your concealer, the creaseless concealer covers the darkest circles, but is hydrating enough to not settle in fine lines. (It’s like Shape Tape for us older gals!) And I’ll use the quickie blending sponge for blending and smoothing concealer and foundation. I love how quickly it dries, too!
Bright lips are my jam, and I live for a great pink! tarte has some of the best pinks that I’ve been reaching for for years! (Don’t worry, they have other shades, too!)
Color splash lipstick is a creamy, long-wearing formula with tons of pigment. For everyday at home (and under my face mask), I always wear maracuja juicy lip . It provides just a touch of color, but tons of hydration and shine!
I recently picked up the maracuja juicy lip in ‘clear’, and love to layer it over my more pigmented lip colors for extra moisture and shine. It also revives faded color without having to re-apply the lipstick.
I’m always looking for new products to share, and these are the latest in my trial runs. So far I’m super-impressed with the color and application of the Amazonian clay blush, and I’ll report back on the pore appeal refining pads after another month of use.
Sidenote: I never share beauty products until I’ve tried them out for several weeks.
Clearly I’m a tarte fan, and will definitely be stocking up during this exciting tiered sale, plus trying a few new things! This trio shadow kit is a great deal, too, and makes the perfect gift!
Not only is tarte dedicated to formulating clean, cruelty-free products, but they’re passionate about giving back. During this Tiered Sale Event, all donations to tarte’s non-profit, heart to tarte, will go to Saving Mothers, an organization dedicated to preventing maternal deaths and birth-related complications for low-income and low-resource communities.
tarte is making it easy for us to give back, too! All the info can be found in the checkout process, and I know every dollar makes a difference. I’m thrilled and honored to partner with brands passionate about doing and being good!
What tarte faves do you have? I’m always excited to try new things, so let me know what I need to order next!
