tarte cosmetics

tarte favorites

tarte is one of those brands that just keeps getting better and better. they consistently put out a beautiful lineup of natural products that not only perform, but they’re pretty, too.  the brand’s mastery of color cosmetics should not be news to anyone reading, but their latest releases are so good that I was compelled to highlight a few of my favorites – old and new.

collector’s edition maracuja c-brighter eye treatment, $38 – i kind of can’t believe that i never posted about this eye cream before now, because i use it all of the time. it’s a do-it-all formula that hydrates, firms, and brightens. it’s thick enough to moisturize but still very easy to apply. my eyes LOVE this stuff.

lipsurgence skintuitive lip tint, $24 – i am yet to meet a lipsurgence shade that i don’t adore, but this one is definitely my favorite. it’s a pink pop of color that wakes up my entire face. the glossy texture is sheer and stain-y, but the balm-like formula means that i can put it onto naked lips. pure perfection.

amazonian clay 12-hour blush in achiote, $26 – coral blush can be real tricky. select one teensy shade to pink or too orange for you skin tone and you could be in big trouble. tarte’s honeysuckle option is very user-friendly. it’s a silky, matte peachy coral loaded with pink. i find it fresh and youthful.

be MATTEnificent eye & cheek palette, $36 – whoa. what is NOT to love about this gorgeous collection of universally flattering shades? with two liner/shadows, and lid options ranging from sand, taupe and peach to plum and rose, i would take this set to a deserted island. plus, that packaging? to die for.

amazonian clay BB tinted moisturizer, $36 – soft and creamy, with SPF, this BB tinted moisturizer really ups the ante. ingredients like chamomile, vitamins A, C, and E work to nourish, moisturize, and calm my sensitive skin. the light-to-medium coverage is perfect for when my skin is behaving and i can’t get enough of the glow.

lights, camera, lashes inner rim brightener, $19 – let’s just say that i could not survive without this product’s wizardry. i use it on my lower inner rims the mornings after a few too many libations (or just not enough sleep) and the rest of the world is none the wiser. it zaps redness and fakes an awake’ness that i haven’t found elsewhere.

do you love tarte’s offerings as much as me? please share any favorites that i may have missed!

  1. Love Tarte.. just tried the mascara…. really like it. I have always loved the lipsurgence… especially glisten… and their eyeliners are excellent!… will definitely try the BB cream now


    • i need to play with the mascara and eyeliners some more – lipsurgence is tried and true. i have a small (and growing) collection :)


  2. I love the maracuja oil (and eye cream!) and the newish mineral powder foundation. The packaging is amazing with this mesh insert to keep it from being super messy. It’s got amazonian clay like everything they make and is super long lasting. I LOVE TARTE!
