blush

Powder Blush in Memorable

Memorable swatched

Memorable Powder Blush is a jaw-droppingly gorgeous peachy-pink with shimmer. Wow is this beautiful. Of course it’s LE, so I will be savoring this for sure.  Also, it’s ‘deluxe’ size, 0.05 oz. whereas a regular tarte blush is 0.2 oz. So there’s even more incentive to savor this beauty!!

mascara

lights, camera, lashes mascara and pure maracuja oil

eye

maracuja c-brighter eye treatment

Also included in the Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag are deluxe sizes of tarte favorites including lights, camera, lashes mascara; pure maracuja oil; and maracuja c-brighter eye treatment. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s still one more product:

stain

cheek stain in flush

A 0.17 oz Deluxe Cheek Stain in Flush. This is a long time favorite product from tarte that is a perfect size for a purse or work desk drawer.

All in all, this is a HUGE amount of great items for a fantastic price. I think it’s a perfect set to give someone who is just getting into makeup…my 14 year old daughter would be ecstatic to get this. And then I could always borrow it!!

Tarte is definitely the go-to line for superb holiday beauty sets. This is another one to hurry up and get before it’s sold out.  - Lisa
