Tarte has a beautiful Today's Special Value coming up on QVC tomorrow and I wanted to let you know about it as soon as I could so you would not miss it. The Colored Clay TSV has 7 pieces of makeup tucked inside a pretty hot pink makeup bag, everything you need for a full face of good-for-you gorgeous.
The set includes:
- colored clay CC primer
- colored clay liquid foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 World-wide Launch
- colored clay bronzer blush in pink bronze World-wide Launch
- colored clay eyeliner in black World-wide Launch
- lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara
- LipSurgence™ lip gloss in true love World-wide Launch
- bamboo liquid foundation brush
All you have to do is choose your shade of foundation, as the Foundation and CC Primer as customized to your skin tone. Choose from Fair, Light, Medium, Tan or Deep.
There are some beautiful products here, really focused on a flawless face with a pretty bronzed pink glow.
The CC primer actually does a nice job of covering flaws. If you are younger and have even skin, you might not need foundation with this. I do need foundation, so I use this as a color-correcting primer, as intended. I swipe a few streaks of the innovative stick over my face and blend it outwards with my fingers. It offers light coverage and does a nice job at evening and brightening my skin.
The Amazonian Colored Clay Liquid Foundation is a brand new product that I was very excited to try. I was puzzled because it says liquid in the name but looks to come in loose powder packaging and then has a shake well before use label on it. Upon opening, it is obviously liquid and you see a custom mesh sifter that you simply press the included Bamboo Foundation Brush into and the perfect amount of foundation is applied to the brush. I used the brush to buff it and blend it onto my skin in outward, even strokes. The finish is natural, a bit on the matte side, but beautiful. It feels lightweight on my skin, yet offering medium to full coverage. If you want more coverage, just blend a little more over those areas.
As I am such a sucker for bronzers and my heart flutters at blush and bronzer combinations, it is no surprise that my favorite it is the Amazonian Colored Clay Bronzer Blush. This all-over mineral powder delivers a sunkissed radiance with the combination of the perfect pink-bronze. I brush it over my cheek bones, over my nose, a dab on my chin and across my forehead to add warmth and dimension to my look.
The look finishes with eyes and lips. The Amazonian Colored Clay Eyeliner in Black is a nice creamy, easy to apply liner that lasts, in your basic black shade. Finish off the eyes with one of my favorite mascaras, Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes for super long, thick lashes that last. Lips will be pretty in a bright pink red with the LipSurgence Lip Gloss in True Love. The gloss is thick, yet not sticky and lasts a good three to four hours. This one is really pigmented for a gloss, yet a bit sheer if using it alone on bare lips. I love the yummy vanilla flavor.
The Tarte Colored Clay Today's Special Value will sell for $59.96 only February 4th and only at QVC.
