The (final) countdown is on!
The new $47.64 Tarte Beauty in The Basics set is available for just nine more hours today (as of 2:30 p.m. PT) on the QVC website.
Yup, if this thing piques your interest, run — not meander or scoot — run to your nearest computer…which would probably the one you’re using right now, and check it out. For $47.64, today only, you get six of Tarte’s most popular products, including…
- (1) 0.31-oz. pan of their Amazonian Clay Smoothing Balm in choice of Fair, Light, Light-Medium, Medium, Tan or Deep (your choice) — This stuff is a medium-to-full-coverage cream foundation with a satiny finish. I’ve used it in Medium and barely have to use any of it at all to even out my skin tone. It’s that pigmented.
- (1) 0.24-fl oz. tube of Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara in Black — Old school! I like Lights, Camera, Lashes for volume, separation and curl hold (but it’s not my favorite mascara for lengthening). It’s an oldie but a goodie.
- (1) 0.10-oz. tube of LipSurgence Lip Creme in Vintage — Vintage has a minty flavor and scent, a lightweight formula and a moderate amount of honeysuckle pink pigment. Me likey.
- (1) 0.24-oz. Special Edition Colored Clay Eyeshadow Palette with 0.06-oz. pans of ivory Classic Cream, taupe Simple Slate, Tantalizing Tan and Breathtaking Brown — I have’t worn these soft, moderately pigmented shadows yet, but they feel very much like other Tarte shadows I have used, so I expect similar performance. I like Tarte’s shadows in general, especially how easily they blend (but sometimes they do leave a lot of fallout).
- (1) 0.03-oz. stick of Amazonian Clay Tightlining Eyeliner in Black Brown — This wonderful little stick is surprisingly great! It’s my favorite thing in the entire set, largely because of the thin tip, which makes it really easy to get deep, down there in between the roots of my lashes, and because it lasts all day long, too.
- (1) Tarte Smoothing Balm Brush — This fluffy, full brush deftly diffuses the cream foundation that comes with this set and, of course, other cream products.
