The tarte Beauty in the Basics QVC Today’s Special Value Collection will be sold for one day only – Monday, May 11th. Regularly $58, this set is going for $47.96. It’s a great deal on an excellent collection. Take a look at the six full size items inside!
The Amazonian clay smoothing balm and bamboo balm brush are both new and are truly lovely. While this smoothing balm is in the shade Fair (so it is definitely going to end up in Marcia’s makeup bag) I really like it. I would need the light-medium shade, but this creamy, medium coverage foundation is very very interesting. It has a great texture. I thought it was going to be heavy like a cream foundation, but instead it is light and smooth. There is no oily or greasy texture, yet it has plenty of slip and is nicely buildable. It is a perfect foundation for hot summer months. The brush is substantial, that’s for sure I love it as a buffing brush, but it is too large to get into smaller areas like under the eyes. Still, it’s a great brush and will get tons of use.
There are three eye products, including the mascara staple lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara, and the new Amazonian clay tightlining eyeliner in a black/brown shade. The eyeliner is perfect for tightlining, which is lining the upper lids from underneath the lash line. I am a huge fan of tightlining because my eyelids have a ridge, so tightlining completes the lined look and makes a big difference for me. The tarte tightlining eyeliner is the perfect size for this – it reminds me of a brow lining pencil. The texture is harder than a typical eyeliner, and the liner really stays put. I also love this for a very thin line on the lower lash line.
I really love the colored clay eyeshadow palette. I can’t say that the colors are anything out of the ordinary, but this is the Beauty in the Basics Collection, right?? These colors are staples for any makeup kit: classic cream, simple slate, tantalizing tan and breathtaking brown. The biggest news, though, is the texture of these eyeshadows. When I swatched them I literally said “Ooooooohhhhhh!” Talk about buttery smooth. They are so buttery they almost feel wet. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Trust me, you want this palette.
The final item is the LipSurgence lip creme, a chunky lip pencil in a pretty, shiny honeysuckle pink. This is an excellent summer shade.
Remember, this set is available for a ONE DAY ONLY price of $47.96 on Monday, May 11th. The set is totally worth it…be sure to head over to QVC to get yours before they sell out! – Lisa #tartebeautybasics @tartecosmetics
