A67369 - tarte 101: Intro to Beauty 4-piece Discovery Kit
Great sampler pack!
My mom purchased this on QVC and was unhappy with the colors so she gave it to me. She has a warm complexion whereas I am more cool, so I suggest to keep this in mind when purchasing. Personally, I think this is a great little kit, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in trying Tarte products, or even giving away as a gift. I've used the cheek gel for over a year almost everyday, so it definitely lasts, and the color is a subtle bluish-pink, easy to blend, and gives a nice almost moisturizer-like afterglow that lasts all day. The dual sided lip gloss is a nice neutral color, and the coppery end works great as a brow accent. The shimmer powder is subtle and not too "fairy princess." The reddish-brown lip gloss is a fabulous color, just enough to look made up but not too done up. (Just to let you know how much I liked it I purchased a full-size one in the same color for my purse). I don't think the lip gloss lasts all day, but in fairness, it was not advertised as such. The pouch it comes in is cute with the black lace edging, but I wouldn't think it'd take daily use. The products do come in smaller sizes, and I think most contain some sort of scent, but neither bothered me. The size made them very portable, perfect to slip in my pocket, and the scent was neither overpowering or overbearing. I'd definitely suggest to a friend!
I like the lip stuff you get....Friday nearly matches my lip color. just a little darker and I love that. It looks very natural; its very sheer berry color. The other lip is a great nude color with a sort of highlighter on the other end. I would buy these again. I don't like cheek stuff...its sticky! and I have fair skin so the color was wrong anyway. the sparkle stuff is very fine so its good...not a glitter.
Price is Way Too High
The actual items were OK, but the tiny little amount that you got of everything was a joke. And the case - very tiny. Not worth the money.
This was my first purchase - just to try & am so glad I did. I love the lip color - Friday & plan to buy more. The blush is great, it lasts longer than my powder blush & plan to buy more of it. The shiny powder was wonderful as I wore it on my sons wedding, it just gave a little sparkle.
Enjoyed the variety of products
I had never tried Tarte before, but I do enjoy trying new products. While the lip products didn't provide as much color as I would like, I did enjoy the cheek stain and the glimmer effect.
It's a more youthful approach to what I currently wear.
Sadly disappointing .....
I tried and tried to like this product but after several weeks gave up and shipped it back. I loved the lip gloss but the cheek stain was messy and looked terrible, the lipstick color felt like dime-store quality there were zero directions on what to do with the little container of white sparkly stuff. No more Tarte for this customer.
LOVE the cheek stain
I LOVE these products...especially the cheek stain! It is different from other cheek color, but the results are worth getting used to. It looks so natural and stays put. I have problems with oily skin & acne and was surprised to see that these products did not bother my skin at all...quite the opposite - the cheek stain stays put even when I blot my skin of excess oil.
sent it back
Could not use anything in this kit. It was
like using childs make up. Pretend make up.
Not worth the money. None of it.
This was my first Tarte purchase, and now I have a closet full. I LOVE THE COLORS. I use this in combination with my bare escentuals products. The cheek gel/stain and the lip stain scared me a bit because it looks so bright and red in the container, but trust me, it is only a hint of color and it is sheer. You really can't buy a "wrong" color, because you have total control on the depth of color. Blend away or apply more. It's a plus that the cheek stain is a roll on. And the 24/7 Friday lip stain, oh it is the best!! I tried Lorac's lip stain and I wished I would have opened it before the 30 days was up, but I promptly threw it away. It was way too liquidy, even in the roll on. But this is perfect. The glistening powder is light and not glittery, but it does shimmer just a bit (about like the B.E. glimpses). And for a try-me kit, it really lasts a long time. I use the little pouch in my purse with other products also. Sometimes, for fun, I even dip my 24/7 into the powder and apply to lips. Hey, I may be 49 yrs old, but girls still wanna have fun, right??!!
I loved the cheek stain and the lip gloss. It lasts a long time and is great for travel.
I bought this kit to try in particular the cheek stain. It is GROSS--it feels like smearing crisco shortening on your face. I sent it back
I have not ordered anything from tarte before so this was a good place to start. I was wanting to see what all the fuss about the cheek stain was about. Really liked it and will reorder everything in the kit in the future. Lip gloss and lip balm was really nice also.
