Save the date for September 24, 2013 so you can get your hands on this amazing Beauty Without Boundaries 8 Piece Collection from Tarte ($59.96). Not only is this set available at a killer price, it’s also on easy pay! You’ll be able to make 3 easy payments for only around $20 each, after shipping is added!
Let’s take a look at what’s included:
First off, I love the bag that comes in this set! It’s so colorful and it’s a really generous size. So much better than those dinky envelope sized makeup bags that come with most collections.
There are 2 makeup brushes included and both have the same colorful fabric around the handles. I love the look but I can see that these may get dirty quickly and potentially may get stained forever. Wish they had some sort of washable plastic covering over top the fabric.
I’m in love with the double ended brush! It has a smaller flat top on one end and a large pointed brush on the other end. They are extremely soft and do not shed at all. This one is great for applying the primer, which I’ll talk about in a minute.
The second brush is a dual sided “eraser” brush. It’s the shape of an eyeshadow brush only larger. It’s also very soft and I’ve not had any issues with shedding. This one is for applying the BB concealer.
Next up is the BB Tinted Treatment Primer with SPF 30. I chose the shade light and it matches my skin pretty well. This one is a light coverage that can be either worn alone or underneath foundation.
It doesn’t give me the amount of coverage I desire so I’ve been using it under my foundation instead of my other primers. It does a really good job of filling in small pores and blurring fine lines. And it also makes my foundation last a lot longer on my oily skin.
The product I was most excited to try is the new BB Tinted Undereye Corrector. This comes in a small flip top compact with a solid pan of concealer. I got the shade fair/light and was happy that it’s not too pale for my skin.
It has a bit of salmon color to it which is nice to camouflage dark circles. It’s a nice creamy consistency with a fair amount of thickness to it. It does a really good job at hiding my dark circles and I’m really pleased that it doesn’t sink into fine lines.
Let’s talk about the eye products next. First up is the Lights, Camera, Lashes Inner Rim Liner. This is a very black waterproof 12 hour liner for use on your upper and lower inner rims. It’s very creamy and transfers onto the rims so easily.
Unfortunately this makes a mess on me after a few hours. It’s so soft that it smears pretty badly and leaves me with racoon eyes. I also have really bad luck with all Tarte eyeliners. Every one I’ve tried near my waterline irritates my eyes and makes them water and this one was no different.
I love the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara so I was stoked to try the newer Light, Camera, Flashes Mascara. It claims a 752% increase in lash volume and it did a pretty good job. I don’t think I got that much of an increase but it still does really well, giving me added volume and length.
This mascara has a pretty wet formula so I had no problems getting it onto my lashes. I do not experience any flaking or transfer either with this one.
I left the best for last, the new LipSurgence Intense Power Pigment in the shade Awakening. This is a new formula of the LipSurgence lipstick line and it is amazing! It is so pigmented and gives your lips nice opaque coverage. The color is a beautiful medium pink shade that leaves your lips a bit stained as well.
The tube is significantly smaller than the usual LipSurgence line of products. It’s much skinnier and has a much smaller tip which is a bit better for a more precise application. It contains 1 g/0.04 oz of product while the others are 3 g/0.10 oz.
Overall this collection is totally worth having! You get so many great products at such a reasonable price. Even though the inner rim liner didn’t work for me, the other things are amazing.
