Tarte's Glow Your Way to Gorgeous Best of the Amazon Set

The Glow Your Way to Gorgeous Best of the Amazon set was originally a QVC offering, but it is now available in the sale section at Tarte.com.  I love sets like these, as it's a great way to try a variety of products at a fraction of what they cost.  Since I already know I like the majority of items included in the set and have none of these colors already, it really was a no brainer to pick this up!
This set also comes with a Marajuca concealer, which I got in medium.  The concealer is nicely pigmented and surprisingly worked well under my eyes, as it did not settle into fine lines.  Throw in 2 brushes, a lights, cameras, lashes! mascara, a sharpener, a bonus bronzer and a maracuja serum oil,  and you've got quite the haul.  With the exception of the maracuja oil and deluxe sized bronzer, all of the items are full sized. 
Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in peaceful
Park Avenue Princess bronzer
Amazonian clay cream eyeshadow in shimmering taupe
smolderEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in fig
LipSurgence™ lip luster in sweet (peachy pink)
The taupe eye cream is very smooth and made for a really easy eye look.   The lights, cameras, lashes! mascara seemed a little bit clumpy to me, but the finished look is really pretty decent.  It's not my favorite mascara, but I'll use it.
The Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in peaceful is a peachy pink with a slight shimmer and nicely complements the similarly tone lipsurgence pencil in sweet.  Valued at over $200, this 8 piece set (10 with the bonus items) is currently $49 at Tarte.com.  Grab it while you can!
Disclosure:  I purchased this.


  1. Very good buy. I like the fig liner :) .

    1. The fig liner is so smooth, and matches Urban Decay's Rock Star eye shadow perfectly!
