Tarte: Glow Your Way to Gorgeous Collection


Oh, blog readers... I am so behind with posts. My pile of stuff to get posted is growing at an alarming rate. There just don't seem to be enough hours in the day. As I write this, it's already tomorrow.

Anyhow, I am super pumped about one of my newest babies. I'll start by saying I'd seen this quite some time ago but (wrongly) assumed it was not accessible to me whatsoever. I am so happy I was wrong.


The item(s) I'm so thrilled with is the Tarte Glow your Way to Gorgeous Collection from QVC (available here). When I first saw this I assumed that QVC didn't ship to Canada. Then I saw it on a Canadian blog a few months after and knew I had to have it. For anyone wondering, shipping prices weren't too bad. I paid about $14, pricier than the average package by my standards, but the collection still works out to be great price with the shipping.

What I got:
* Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in Black Reg.$19
* SmolderEYES Waterproof Eyeliner Reg. $22
* Maracuja Creaseless Concealer Reg. $24.50
* Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot Reg. $22
* Lip Luster Reg. $24
* 12 Hour Wear Clay Blush in Peaceful Reg. $25
* Shadow Brush and Tarte Blush Brush Reg. $27
* Sharpener
* Bronzer (trial size)
* Maracuja Oil (trial size)
* Makeup Bag

Total retail price for everything is $195 (or $180.50 if you don't include the extras like the bag, sharpener and trial size items.) all said and done I paid about $75 once shipping and everything was done. Not too shabby. I've used a few of the items already and looove the quality of the products. I think the Concealer may just be my HG for under eye.


The item I was most excited about was the 12 Hour Wear Clay Blush in Peaceful. I've wanted to try these, but didn't really want to pay the $25 for one (call me cheap). Peaceful is a QVC limited shade (for now) and is a really pretty peachy-rose shade (more peachy than rose). I'll have a better review with swatches and what not once I use it a bit more.

I am so excited to really get to use everything in this kit! I love that everything in it is actually stuff I'll use and it is all high quality (ie not three good products then filler sub-par items to make it look like a deal.) I highly suggest this to Tarte fans (or makeup fans in general.)It just doesn't disappoint.

Anyone snag any good deals lately?

  5. Thank you for this entry as I didn't know I could order this from QVC for shipping to Canada. Now I'm going to as well since everything looks amazing. I was just wondering How long did it take to get your order? Did it take long?

    I know, it is lame when you can't get stuff. It's not as bad here, but there is still stuff we don't get.

    @Harshleen
