A216256 - Tarte Amazonian Clay New Naturals 7-piece Collection
This kit is amazing deal. i got the foundation in Fair because it was the only shade available and i wanted the Light . The shade is lighter than my skin (I am not porcelain I am fair)so I used Laura Geller bronze primer and BB in Fair plus a little of Tarte bronzer (the one comes as sapmle) and the result was just right.
Expert said if you hesitate between 2 shades go for the lighter than use bronzer because the opposite will be very difficult. So now I have the right shade. Hope this help.
Love this kit!!!
I just love this kit. The blush is beautiful as are the eye shadows and last a long time and I've been putting them to the test and they really do stay in place! This is the first foundation that I've ever used that I actuallly love. It doesn't go into fine lines and wrinkles and make them 'stand out' but just glides over the skin in a soft way. I wish I had gotten the foundation brush but a sponge seems to work okay until I can get hold of the foundation brush. I have very sensative skin as well and this has been so good to my skin. The lip gloss has actually improved my poor, dry, cracked lips! What a good buy!
My FAVORITE Tarte purchase so far..
I have been a BE girl for 10 years and in the past year started adding Tarte to my collection. The two brands work very well together. The foundation was a nice suprise and the eyeshadows are soooo rich!
I love everything in this kit. I think the bag is really well made and pretty. I love how soft and easy to use the eye brush is. The eyeshadow colors are gorgeous and very pigmented. However, they are a little powdery (this doesn't bug me). The eye pencil is a pretty bronzy brown and glides on smoothly and lasts all day. The blush is a bright pink shimmer and very flattering on the skin; not too much shimmer, in fact it is hardly noticable. the lipgloss is smooth and a little sticky but very moisturizing and long lasting. The mascara I've used before and really enjoy. And the foundation is great. I have oily, sensitive skin and this does not irritate my skin at all and lasts all night. I moisturize at night because of my oily skin and I find that this makes my foundation last longer during the day. I really like this kit and would buy another if Tarte put one out.
My First Tarte Purchase
I absolutely love this kit! This was my first Tarte purchase and I am hooked. All of the items are amazing - feel very natural and lightweight, but yet last all day! I went back and ordered the bronzer, I am excited to try more tarte products. I have sensitive and acne prone skin and live in Florida, and these items work perfect for my skin and the hot humid days, I would definitely recommend!
I kept debating over whether or not to order the Amazonian Clay Balancing Foundation and when I did decide to order it the "light" was wait list only status. I was bummed until I came across this 7-piece collection which had the shade in stock. I am THRILLED that the foundation itself wasn't available because this collection is incredible.
*Amazonian Clay Balancing Foundation: I've used my fair share of foundations over the years, always in search of the perfect one for my combination oily skin. This one is it and I can't see myself ever purchasing another brand. Coverage is initially medium but easily builds to full if that's what you're seeking. The dry areas of my face don't flake, the oily areas don't shine. It covers beautifully while still maintaining a natural look. It also lasts all day
*12-Hour Wear Powder Blush: The shade isn't ideal for me (fair skinned, red hair) but I am able to make it work by using just a little bit. A few words of caution: you'll want to use this blush sparingly as the pigmentation is superb. One quick swipe with a blush brush is ample to provide a natural looking flush.
*Long Wear Eye Shadow Quad: Tarte isn't kidding with the "long wear" description; these shadows literally don't move once applied, and that's without an eye primer. The colors provided are pretty good though I would like to see a quad introduced with shades that aren't so close together.
*Lights, Cameras, Lashes!: This mascara doesn't produce WOW! results in the volumizing category but overall, it's a great black mascara. It's rare to find a mascara that doesn't cause the lashes to clump; this one is an exception. As of late the weather here in PA has been hot and humid but I haven't experienced a single smudge despite the weather.
*PureOptic Lip Gloss: Not much to be said here -- it's a standard lip gloss. The color appears to be a bright mauve but once applied it's more of a pink sheer, a pleasant surprise as I limit my lip colors to light pink and coral.
*Foundation Brush: NOT INCLUDED. In its place is a lovely, dual-ended eye shadow brush. Personally, I'll take a good quality shadow brush over a foundation brush any day of the week.
This collection from Tarte warrants 10 stars, not 5. You won't be disappointed with these high-quality cosmetics and would be hard pressed to find comparisons!
Great Tarte Collection
WOW...totally love this collection. For the price, you can't beat it...I already use this foundation...so I stocked up. I love the amazonian blush...pretty color...the eyeshadow quad has a glimmer effect ...not too shimmery or glittery. The description stated you get a foundation brush, not true... you get a dual eyeshadow brush...which I could see in the pic...nice soft bristles...applies very clean with the eyeshadow...nice, minty gloss, the eyeliner is pretty...the mascara isn't clumpy...no complaints...love the set. I like the cute makeup bag...holds everything perfectly.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this kit! I bought it wanting to try the foundation and am love EVERYTHING in this kit! The foundation is a perfect match (I bought medium) and it has a silky coverage that covers without being cakey and heavy. The eyeliner goes on smooth and is just the right shade, not too dark. I love the colors of the eyeshadows. A couple of the shades are glimmery without being glittery. I use the darkest shade to line my eyes. The blush can go on too dark but is a wonderful shade if you just use a little or just blend it well. I didn't think I was going to like the mascara but I love that too! It volumizes your lashes and doesn't flake off or smudge even at the end of the day. I also love the lipgloss which I thought was going to be too light for me but is a really nice pink shade. The case and brush is a great bonus too. I love this so much I'm buying another one to stock up! This is a GREAT value!
I really like the foundation, its so silky and dewy and light....love it. I also like the mascara, eyeliner and the lip gloss, not to mention the super cute bag!!
Great products...everyone of them....The foundation is the best I have ever used. I have intense hot flashes and every other product I have tried just slides off my face. This foundation stayed and looked great. The blush is beautiful and natural looking. It too stayed and didn't sweat off. The mascara is awesome! Like I said every product is great. None were disappointing. LOVE TARTE!
I recieved this kit today and I am in love. I purchased the fair. I had tried the Tarte Age Rewind foundation in the past and hated it. This one is so much better. I am so pleased with everything in the kit. I only wish it had come with a foundation brush as the discription said, instead it was an eyeshadow brush that was included. Will definatly purchase another kit like this if offered again.
This is an awesome kit and a great value. Since I already have the foundation and the brush I thought I would give this a try. The eyeliner is my favorite and a great color on my blue eyes. I was pleasantly surprised by the mascara since I usually use Mally's mascara. The mascara was not as dramatic as Mally's, but it lasted without running all over my face. Blush, eyeshadow and lipgloss were all really nice colors also. I will definitely be keeping this kit.
