Hi all! ❤
So in this post I’ll be talking about Tarte’s Tarteist Treats Eye & Lip set. I’m a sucker for bundles and getting the most out of your dollar. I’m not a big user of eye shadows and didn’t want to invest in a $40-60 eye shadow palette, so I wanted to opt for something smaller and not too expensive. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the high-end palettes like the Naked palette, but I don’t see myself using it all up and would probably have it sit out for the majority of the time 😦 While browsing through the Sephora app, I stumbled across this particular eye shadow set. The kit cost $25 and included a mini lip gloss and mini mascara. The palette by itself would have cost $23 so for $2 more, I got two more items 😀 I ordered through my phone and was patiently waiting for the day of arrival.
As you can see from above, the kit comes in a cute box which contains all three products mentioned before. I was super happy to come home to this box after a long day at work and was immediately ready to test it out. The first thing I wanted to put on was the lip gloss. Now, the lip gloss is part of their Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint collection and it’s in the color WCW which is a really nice berry color. When applying it, it seemed like it was going to be a dark plum color. However, I spread out the color across the lips and the plum color turned into a nice berry almost like a rasberry color that I absolutely love! ❤ 🙂 I feel like this color would be great to put on if you wanted that pop of color but wanted something more than the ordinary red. My skin is pretty fair so this color went really well with my face and it wasn’t too sticky on my lips.
Now moving onto the eye shadow palette. The palette is a great size to travel around with and have when you want that natural but dazzling look. The colors that were included in this kit were: Drive (nude), Boss (bronze), Stylin (brown), Hype (gold), Crisp (chestnut), and Dominate (shimmering rasberry). I did a swatch of all the colors on my arm to show how the colors would bounce off my skin. My favorite from just looking at the swatches was Hype and Dominate. I love glittery eyelids and feel like these colors would be great additions to my everyday look 😉
Lastly, Tarte’s kit include their mini Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara in black. I’m not a big fan of mascaras (been using Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara for forever) but if I just wanted that extra length for my lashes, this was a great item to try out. When opening the product, it felt like I was trying to suck something out of the tube. It was weird because I never used a mascara like this and when I was trying to discard some of the product back into the tube, I ended up making a little mess 😐 This was the only downfall for me in this kit. The mascara did make my eyelashes very beautiful and thick and lengthen them, but it was a bit too much of product that went on and made little clumps on my eyelashes. Because I rarely use mascara, this won’t bother me too much but for those who regularly do wear it, be aware~
Overall, I enjoyed this little bundle of goodies. I can’t wait to try out different looks with the eye shadow palette and see the different combinations I can create. This was a great value for your dollar and if you want to look into the product, I have provided a link to the Sephora website ⭐
On a side note, I’m trying my best to post up a blog every week but I’m pretty sure most know how school goes 😎 I think these types of posts are something I’ll try to keep doing but let me know what other topics I should branch out to. I’m thinking of doing some fashion and food posts, and with summer coming up, I’m hoping to get some posts about traveling. Any who, I do hope you all enjoyed this review! Have a great rest of your day and smile big!~~~ 🙂
Pros: Inexpensive, good for travel, colors are vibrant and long-lasting
Cons: Mascara is hard to control the amount you want to apply = messy
