Sephora Tarte haul!


It might come as a surprise when I tell you that I have never owned anything from Tarte. I have seen so many beautiful makeup palettes and blogger/youtuber collaborations with the brand, but just never knew where to get it from. Plus it is pretty pricey in the UK. On my recent trip to America, I went into a Sephora where I spent a lot of time trying out different products but not finding anything I liked. As I was about to leave empty handed I spotted the checkout aisle of mini's! I was really surprised at how affordable these products were in the mini form. So I gave in to my temptations and decided to give these two products a try. 


First off is this Tartiest lip paint and liner lip contour set. I think the idea of this product is to use the liner on the corners of the lips as well as to line, followed by the lip paint in the middle to create a contour look. I don't want to seem a Debbie downer but I really regret purchasing this! I got caught up in the idea of being able to try two different product in 1 that I didn't try it out. After trying it out when I got back to the hotel I found that the pencil is absolutely rubbish. It doesn't come out easily and when it does you have to apply it very hard to get any product pay off. So thats disappointing. I have been googling and think I am going to give it a little try once its warmed up a little bit to see if that makes any difference. The lip paint however is amazing. I almost wish I had just bought a larger version of it. The lip paint came in shade TBT Mauve. It applies lovely and doesn't feel drying on the lips at all. It is really wearable as well which makes it all that much better. I just wish it was bigger, I may consider repurchasing this!



Next up is the Tartlette Tease limited edition palette. I mean come on, look how pretty this is! I have heard SO many great things about Tarte eyeshadows so I knew that if I was going to try any of them I wanted it to be this. Plus it is in a mini form so came in handy on my travels. The only sad thing about the palette is that one of the shades 'Wink' was smashed when I opened it. That serves me right for not checking in-store. All of the colours in this palette are extremely wearable and it has a strong pleasant smell of vanilla. I just want to eat it up! 







I am so pleased with the pigmentation and colour's that are on offer with this palette. Every shade is wearable and there isn't a colour that I wouldn't wear. The darker colours would also be perfect to line the eye if I found myself needing to. It's perfect for travel!

I hope you enjoyed this blogpost. I know I enjoyed spending the money for it! 
Thanks so much for reading! 
Lots of love,

  1. Such a shame that your palette was smashed and your not too keen on the liner. I have the Tartelette in bloom palette and I love it. The eyeshadows are just the best! x

  2. Love Tarte! I have their Rainforest of the Sea palette and it's a gem. I always hear such great things about the brand. I'm sorry to hear about the liner not working out and the smashed shadow. On the bright side it's a gorgeous palette and amazing colors. Might have to take a trip down to Sephora to get my hands on it before it goes away!
    Great post :)

    1. Hey! Thanks for the lovely comment. I know its such a shame, my fault though as I should have checked it before it was too late.

      I'm so annoyed about the lip liner as I really thought it would be great! Oh well. The lip paint is gorgeous on its own!

    1. Oh good! I thought I was so behind when everybody kept on tweeting about how amazing Tarte was!

      I am so annoyed about the palette being smashed, atleast it was only the one shadow though!

  4. The lip paint sounds fab, really want to give it a try now! It's a shame the liner wasn't as good though. Did it work any better once you had warned it up?
    Love the look of the palette!

    1. Hey, thanks for commenting!
      The lip paint is amazing. It lasts ages and doesn't smudge at all! The liner is such a shame. It doesn't work at all! I warmed it up a little and it made no difference, I guess its just not meant to be!

  5. Wow, that color payoff is amazing. I used to have the tarte bon voyage shadow palette, and it wasn't my favorite. The shadows were a bit too chalk for my liking. These look fairly creamy though! :) x

      These shadows are a little chalky as well! Although once applied to the eyes are super creamy so I guess they are working on their formula!

    1. I know! I wish we had Sephora in the UK too!
      It was so overwhelming shopping in there, things are so expensive as well, hence why I bought a few mini sized products!

      I tried warming it up to see if it made any difference but it just kept on braking. Luckily the lip paint is amazing on its own!

    1. I hadn't either before these products! I had seen the tease palette online and wasnt amazed by it, but once I swatched it in the store I knew I had to get it! It's perfect for a quick on the go look as they blend so easily!

      Then I saw the lip paint duo and bought it randomly haha!
