The Tarte Timeless Beauty Essentials limited-edition set ($36) that is exclusive to Ulta includes:
- Timeless Smoothing Primer (0.067 oz.) – Deluxe sample
- Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Timeless (peach melon) (0.2 oz.) – Full size
- Blush Brush
- Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Angelic Nude (0.1 oz.) – Full size
- Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara (0.16 oz.) – Deluxe sample
So what did I think? This set of products from Tarte is amazing and so worth the money – actually it is a great value!
The Timeless Smoothing Primer really surprised me. It has a thicker consistency (reminded me of the new Make Up For Ever primers and Benefit’s Porefessional) but applies easily. My foundation glides right on top and the finish is matte but alive – if the makes sense. I cannot say it makes my makeup last any longer than any other primer but I am on board with it!
I love Tarte blushes and this blush in Timeless one was no let down. I love how well they apply and blend and they remain consistent throughout the day. Timeless is a peachy-melon shade that will probably work well for anyone? I love, love it!
The blush brush is not only beautiful – look at the design on the handle (!) – but it applies blush flawlessly. It is somewhat soft but full bristled, which is perfect for me for applying blush. I also adore how pretty it is!
I have had very limited experience with Tarte lipsticks but that will not last! I love the feel of them! The Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Angelic Nude that is part of this set is a beautiful pinky-nude color. What I love the most, however, is the feel of it. It is so moisturizing and glides on your lips! I am not as fond of the cardboard lipstick tube but at least it is cute. As for longevity – it last but not for a long, long time. I do not mind this though because I love applying it!
Finally, the mascara…I have not had much luck with Tarte mascaras before. That means, that I never thought they out-performed any of my other favorites, which typically are from the drug store (e.g., L’Oreal Butterfly mascara is amazing!). I also prefer waterproof mascaras. The Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement mascara from this kit is different. I really like it! It is a bit “wet” in consistency but between the product and the brush it does some magic! I definitely will use this sample, but I am not sure yet if I will purchase a full size any time in the future.
So, big “thumbs up” to this limited edition set! I love it and am so happy with each piece included in the limited edition collection. I would highly recommend it as a gift or as a purchase for yourself. Has anyone else tried it? I would love to hear your thoughts! What other kits are on your gift list?
Until next time, I will keep my eye out for other potential gift items! If you want to see my video, please click below (and sub too!). I have a new goal of getting to 500 subscribers! Share as well!!
