If you are a tarte lover, get ready – the Sweet Indulgence 3-in-1 Holiday Gift Set ($59.94) is on sale for one day only at QVC, November 10th. Set yourself a reminder so you can order this fabulous limited edition set. This is a ‘one for you, one for me’ holiday set for sure – or you can also break up the set and make it three separate gifts. The BIZ was sent a sneak peek so we could give you the low down before the sale. Two removable eyeshadow palettes house 16 different eyeshadows, plus the set includes two brand new blush shades, two lip creams, one lip gloss, three LE eyeliners, and 2 full size mascaras.
For so many products, this is a very tight little box that doesn’t take up much room. There are three separate ‘books’ housed inside the light purple with gold floral box.
The first book is all about eyes. The eyeliner shades are plum, charcoal, and bronze. These are basic pencil eyeliners that work best on the upper lid – they do smudge when I wear them on my lower lash line. Out of the three shades the bronze shade is the standout. Also included are two full-sized lights, camera, LASHES mascara, one of my favorite go-to mascaras.
The second book is all about lips and cheeks. There are two new Amazonian clay 12-hour blush shades – hooray! I adore this blush and new shades are always so much fun. The first is savored, a golden rose; the second is pampered, a soft melon.
There is one LE LipSurgence lip gloss in the shade indulging, which is a raspberry pink. This is a sticky but longer wearing lip gloss, and the color is very pretty. Plus there are two LipSurgence lip cremes: wonder, a poppy pink, and rare, a peachy nude. The Lip Cremes are self-sharpening and have a slightly minty taste. True to their name they are very creamy when first applied and they eventually dry down to a stain that lasts for hours on me.
The third book has two removable palettes with 8 eyeshadows each.
The first palette shades:
pinky promise (pink mauve), taupe of the world (deep taupe), you look mauveless (mauve plum), just malt away (creamy malt)
pampered pink (light pink), dare to be gold (gold), show plum love (rich plum), wind down brown (rich brown)
The second palette shades:
vanilla candles (soft beige), coming up roses (plum rose), hazelnut bon bons (medium brown), champagne bubble bath (shimmering pink)
bronze cuff (golden hazel), feeling grey-t (pebble grey), espresso yourself (espresso), cinnamon latte (shimmering cinnamon)
This is a great set to buy for any cosmetics lover. The only items that I could do without are the eye pencils, but if you have dry skin they will probably work well for you. A great thing about tarte is their shades are more on the neutral side, so you really can’t go wrong with these as gifts. Take advantage of the TSV sale on November 10th…I have a feeling this holiday special set is not going to last for long. You can buy it right here: http://qvc.co/tarte-
