At last it’s Friday, it’s been a long and hectic week with preparing for Freddy’s first day of school yesterday, but here we are at the end of the week, my son is officially a school pupil, and I can’t wait for the weekend!
Today I have the gorgeous Tarte Cosmetics Miracles from the Amazon 5-piece Collection to share with you. This stunning set includes a lovely makeup bag, finished with purple and gold thread – it’s also a decent size so you can fit lots of products in there, as well as a beautiful Amazonian Clay Eye and Cheek Palette, a dual ended eyeshadow brush, a Liquid Lip Shine and a Smart Mascara.
This impressive collection is only £34.00 from QVC, which is a complete bargain for four quality products as well as a makeup bag.
Tarte’s Limited Edition Palette includes 6 pretty Amazonian clay-infused neutral shades in Pink Beyond – a dusky pink, Taupe For The Best – a shimmery taupe, Dreams Plum True – a dark matte plummy purple, Out of this Pearl – a shimmery golden beige, Thistle Be The Day – a matte taupe, and Paint the Brown – a matte chocolate brown, as well as a universally flattering blush in Talented – a mid peachy pink shade.
This palette is just so pretty and unusual, it comes in a high shine metallic gold case with a full sized mirror in the lid, and kind of giraffe / tile print in shades of purple on the lid.
And here are the swatches. Over all the shadows are great, but my only niggle is the shade Pink Beyond, this is the light pink swatch closest to my wrist and you can hardly see it. Yes it is a very light colour, but it just didn’t have very good pigmentation and was pretty hard to work with. That said, all the other shades were fab, the shimmery taupe called Taupe for the Best is definitely my favourite, it’s a beautiful high-shimmer taupe that will suit most complexions.
Ok so let’s take a look at what else is included in the set!
There’s a dual-ended eyeshadow brush, which has Tarte’s signature wood effect handle with a gold metallic finish at each brush end for a luxe feel. The brush fibres are soft yet firm, and perfect for packing on colour and blending.
There’s also a LipSurgence Liquid Lip Shine included in shade Exquisite. This is a new shade that I understand is exclusive to this set. Exquisite is a lovely pink berry shade that comes out quite sheer on application, it has a glossy finish that is slightly tacky on the lips, but very confirmable to wear. You can see from the swatch above that this product definitely has eliments of a lip stain. It actually combines the benefits of a stain with a gloss, for a really pretty, glossy effect on the lips.
And lastly, the Smart Mascara – this is Tarte’s must-have mascara which instinctively treats your unique lash concerns, working overtime to keep lashes hydrated, intact, healthier, and stronger, whilst also delivering the appearance of more voluminous lashes. Again this comes in Tarte’s signature wooden casing, with the purple giraffe print featuring on the lid to tie it into the set.
Well over all I’m really impressed. I love the shades in the palette – I’ll definitely use these regularly, and the gloss and mascara are just perfect for every day wear. This gorgeous set would also make a wonderful gift for makeup lovers 🙂
