What has your makeup done for you lately? Tarte Cosmetics Review

Hi all! Today I'm here to share a very popular cosmetic set that just launched recently on QVC. That is the Tarte Cosmetics - What has your makeup done for your lately? set. I'll be demonstrating a tutorial featuring all of the products in the set and a Tarte Amazonian Clay blush as that is not included in the bundle.

All the products here have maracuja oil (passion fruit oil) in it as it's suppose to help moisturise and brightens your skin. My box also came with a premium tester of the Tarte Maracuja C-brightener Eye Treatment. 

I wasn't very smart and accidentally bought the foundation in a shade too light for myself. However I'll still be using the foundation without mixing in a darker colour in the tutorial. I start to lightly run the Pure Maracuja Oil on the spots of my face that are usually more dry, such as underneath the eyes, around the nose and mouth. Blend it out with your fingers.

Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil

The oil absorbs into the skin quickly and is not scented. It smells a bit like any oil.. cooking oil. 

Maracuja Miracle Foundation in Fair



I used one pump of the foundation and blended it out with the brush that came with the set. Foundation is medium to high coverage. The brush smells pretty bad even though I've already washed it twice and it is rather scratchy to use it as a foundation blush. I would say this serves better as a contour or blush brush.

Tarte Modern Eyes Waterproof Creaseless Shadow/ Liner Duo in Plumberry/ Plum Brown

The eyeliner is probably my favourite product out of the set. It is super pigmented and soft. The colour is absolutely beautiful too! I used it for tight lining in this tutorial.

Creaseless shadow in Plumberry

Blend it out with your fingers. Ideally I would use this only as a base and top it off with a powder eyeshadow. Despite of what it claims, the shadow still creased on my eyelids. I do have particularly oily lids!

Progress so far... TOO WHITE OMG

I am very aware that the foundation it way too fair for my skin tone. Funnily enough though, in person it seems to have oxidised into a colour that is closer to my skin tone now! I only applied very little amount of the foundation this time.

Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara in Gifted

This mascara has a dry formula, which I love! Although it doesn't provide super voluminous lashes compare to MUFE's, it still does a pretty amazing job. Perhaps it will become better as I use it more.


For the sake of a complete look, I pulled out my one and only Tarte blush.

Tarte LipSurgence in Smitten

Love the LipSurgeon! I like the minty feeling it gives on the lips. The new packaging is no longer a twist up, it now comes with a sharpener so that your tip is always sharp!

Complete Look!

If you have a chance I would highly recommend you to get some Tarte products, especially this particular set as it is a super great deal! I just wished I picked the correct foundation instead of this one that is way too fair for me. Only $59 for all these!!! 

Thank you and see you in my next post! ^.^
