Every so often, Tarte Cosmetics have a special offer on, where you can pick a makeup bag and six full sized products for just £56.00 including delivery. Considering individual prices, this is crazy value for money, and I always like to take advantage of the offer, whether it is to stock up on products I already love, or try new ones out. Here is what I chose for the Tarte Custom Beauty Kit Summer 2019.
Starting with the bag, I opted for a bright pink, roomy bag which comes with a cute pom pom and a neon multi-coloured tassel on it. I have had this bag before, but I didn't really fancy any of the others and as it is such a great size, you can fit plenty in it.
The only product I already own is the Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation, which retails for £33.00. I went for the shade Fair Beige as my skin is a little tanner at the moment compared to winter time when I first bought the foundation. This foundation has such great coverage and my skin gets dry all year round, so this is a really good choice for me and I love that I can now wear it in Summer too due to it being a warmer shade.
The first new-to-me product I chose is the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Filtered Light Setting Powder, which retails for £33.00 also. This is a talc-free makeup setting and baking powder that contains tiny, light-reflecting particles that blurs out pores, and heaven knows I need that. My pores, even though they are not huge, are just one of the main things I get self-conscious about. This is ever so slightly tinted, but will work well on the majority of skin tones.
I then opted for the Tarte Ready, Set, Radiant Skin Mist, which has an RRP of £28.00. I haven't really tried many skincare products from Tarte and with my love of setting sprays, I just had to include this in my bundle. You can use it as a hydrating skin mist or as a makeup setting spray, which it works really well at, but I really was not keen on the scent of this at all. It kind of smells like garden mint, which I am sure some people will love but it is really not for me.
Next up, I ordered the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in this limited edition packaging, purely for the pink glitter packaging. I have no shame and no regrets. This mascara retails for £21.00 and I have used it before, but I wasn't shook by the result, but I know so many people rave about this mascara and so I wanted to give it another whirl, and failing that I will just have it looking pretty on my vanity table.
For the eyes I picked out the Tarte Glam On The Go Eyeshadow Palette (£25.00). This oh-so-cute palette features flamingos dancing on the front of it, and comes with three matte eyeshadows and three metallic eyeshadows. The shades include a cream, some browns, and some bronze and gold metallics and I think this would make a lovely little palette to take travelling or on holiday as it is so neat and petite.
Last but not least, I went for the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Color Splash Lipstick in the shade Skinny Dip. The Color Splash Lipsticks are regularly £20.00, which I do think is quite pricey for a lipstick. However, the packaging is gorgeous, and reminds me of the sea and the shade Skinny Dip is a great light nude for everyday wear.
If I had bought these items separately, I would have had to have paid £150.00 plus the beauty bag, and so I saved £94.00 which is such a good deal. If you would like to sign up to the Tarte mailing list to be made aware of future deals like this, head to their website here.
