Tarte is a cosmetics company with a conscience. They manufacture their products without parabens, petro-chemicals, phthalates, sulfates, perservatives, glycols, fragrance, gluten or GMO’s. They also encourage recycling to reduce environmental waste, so their eyeshadow palettes are refillable. It’s makeup you can feel good about buying in more ways than one.
I was compelled to purchase some Tarte products when a MUAer posted a 40% off code (luckyweek3, don’t know if it will still work). I had been wanting to try some Tarte products for awhile and this was an excellent excuse to do so. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the merchandise and their very rapid shipping.
The eyeshadow palette has 10 colors of eyeshadow, plus a very good quality double-ended eyeshadow brush and a double-ended eyeliner pencil AND they included a free sample of primer!
The eyeshadows are extremely soft, however pigmentation is just OK, perhaps when I use the primer I will get a better application.
The blush gives a very pretty natural flush but is not creamy and actually is almost hard, when I pressed a fingertip into it, it left no depression.
Perhaps my favorite of all this is the product I did not actually order, the Sugar Daddy glistening powder is just a gorgeous color.
The most famous product Tarte makes is one I did not purchase. These are their cheek stains. The are packaged in fat twist up tubes and are almost jelly like in appearance with names like Tipsy, Blushing Bride and Giggle. Some makeup enthusiasts love them and some can not stand the texture, you can judge for yourself.
Another product not puchased, but that has always intrigued me is their double-ended lipglosses, they’re named for famous romantic couples of literature and movies. To name a few, Scarlett and Rhett, Ferris and Sloane, and Johnny and Baby.
So my very dear Lemming readers, what is your opinion of an cosmetic companynout to make peoplecand the world they live in a little more beautiful??
