Well, I have no idea how it happened.
After the longest year on record, it’s all of a sudden December 7th!
If you’re like me, you’re not even close to having your holiday shopping done, so I’m here to help! I’m thrilled to be partnering up with tarte today to let you know about their CREATE YOUR OWN KIT special promotion they have going on right now, just in time for gift giving!
Right now you can choose 4 AMAZING products for ONLY $45! SO MUCH FUN!
Click HERE to see all of the products you have to choose from when putting your own personal kit together. Perhaps the kit is for you, perhaps it is for a loved one, or perhaps you have a couple of products for you and a couple of products for a loved one in your kit! That’s the beauty of these kits! You can mix and match items any way you please, the possibilities are truly endless, and the savings are incredible.
Just for fun, I’ve put several kits together to help inspire you!
But before we get started, in case you are new to all things tarte, I wanted to tell you a little bit about the brand. tarte prides itself on the fact that they offer eco-chic, cruelty-free cosmetics & hypoallergenic, vegan skincare. Every product is packed with naturally-derived, skinvigorating™ ingredients & always formulated without the bad stuff like parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, & gluten. In addition, they give back to the environment and they are always looking for ways to #rethinknatural. To read even more about the brand, click HERE.
Kit #1 is a $90 value, so you would be saving $45!!!
The Lippie lingerie is a longwearing, hydrating matte lip tint. But even though the finish is matte, the formula is very hydrating. I prefer a shiny lip, so in the picture below I have on the Lippie lingerie in whisper and the Jelly glaze in strawberry on top (the Jelly glaze is in example kit #2).
Lights camera lashes is a mascara that I’ve been hearing about for awhile now. And get this, it’s been termed a “Push-up bra for your lashes™”! This 4-in-1 mascara volumizes, lengthens, curls and conditions lashes. The short bristles on the brush add volume as the long bristles instantly curl your lashes.
The Sex kitten eyeliner has a thin liner on one side and a built in smudger on the other. The liner is very dark and creates a very thin line that’s super close to your lash line. I think there’s a bit of a learning curve when using it because the product is so thin and dark, but with just a little bit of practice, I really loved the results. It’s long lasting and doesn’t smudge during the day.
Kit #1 has these two eye products paired up with a contour kit and a matte lipstick…but you could of course make an all eye kit by pairing the below with the tartlette tease clay palette and another mascara (like the Big ego mascara mascara).
Also in this kit is the Pro glow to go palette, which is a portable highlighter and contour palette. I have a lot to learn about highlighting and contouring, but I feel like this palette would really simplify things for me.
Kit #2 has a total value of $81, so you would be saving $36!
People consider the Glow wand to be an instant eye lift in a tube! And it claims to give you that “8 hours of beauty sleep” look. SIGN ME UP FOR THAT, Y’ALL.
You dot the product on your face with the wand….
And then you blend it in with the sponge side! I think it’s so handy that the wand has a built in sponge.
The Glow wand will give you coverage as well as a nice soft glow.
The other 3 items in this kit are lots of fun too!
The tartlette tease clay palette is a small version of their best selling tartlette palette. It would fit easily into your makeup bag and would be great for travel. It has 6 beautifully neutral shades with 4 mattes and 2 lusters.
The Big ego mascara is what many refer to as their “holy grail” mascara. It’s awesome that it’s available as an option for these create your own kits.
The Jelly glaze in strawberry (reg. $14) is a very pretty pink that just seems to enhance the natural color of my lips. It’s super hydrating and feels just as good on as some of my lip masks do. It’s very sheer and makes my lips feel great.
This kit has a combination of items from the previous 2 kits, proving that you can play around with the items to create the perfect kit for you!
This kit has a total value of $86, so you would be saving $41!
The little palettes in kit #3 were also included separately in kits #1 and #2. See? I’m mixing and matching to my heart’s content.
Both palettes are adorable and would make excellent stocking stuffers.
And I really love the packaging and branding too.
For this final kit, I have all parts of the face covered with a foundation, a mascara, a blush, and a gloss.
It has a total value of $95, so you would be saving $50! WOW!
- Maracuja tinted moisturizer (reg. $29)
- Amazonian clay 12 hour blush (reg. $29)
- gifted Amazonian clay mascara (reg. $23)
- Jelly glaze in strawberry (reg. $14)
I had so much fun putting those personalized kits together, and I really encourage you to go play around yourself. You can always combine some old favorites with some new items you’ve been wanting to try.
Is tarte a brand that you’ve been using for years, or is it new to you like it was for me last month? I can’t believe it took me so long to try out the products, but now I’m so thankful that I have! I’ve had so much fun getting to know their product line. If you didn’t catch my tarte BEFORE and AFTER on insastories, just head to my instagram highlight reel and click on “tarte”. I would love it if you would take a minute to go watch my makeup tutorial that’s living on my ig story highlight reel now.
I’m obsessed with the Maracuja Juicy Lip (in strawberry) that you see in the After picture. Again, in the instastory videos I do direct swipe ups to all of the products I’m highlighting to make it as easy as possible for you to find what you’re looking for.
