QVC has become one of my ultimate shopping destinations. Not only can you find great name brands, with a percentage off the high street price and available to pay over 3 installments, you can see why any shopping addict would head straight to the site. QVC is also the only retailer in the UK where you can get your mitts on Tarte. One thing that I do miss about being able to go to the USA frequently is having Tarte on tap. There are several products from Tarte that are staples in my kit; the Skin Twinkle palette, Shape Tape concealer and the Tarteist Pro Clay Liner. Of course, there are also products which I have bought simply for the need to have it!
The latest drop on QVCUK from Tarte is probably one of the most girliest, glitteriest and prettiest collections that I have ever seen. Love, Trust and Fairy Dust with Pretty Things and Fairy Wings being some of the cute and kitsch names of the products has made this my favourite Tarte drop to date. The limited edition palette Love, Trust and Fairy Dust is selling out fast on QVCUK but I would keep it on alert for a restock. That is one thing that QVC are good at, and that’s getting a restock fairly quickly. Failing that, you can order directly from Tarte and they often hold free international shipping and the customs charges are included in the overall price.
So, the Love, Trust and Fairy Dust palette is probably one of the cutest palettes that I have ever owned. The lid is made up of purple glittery stars, whilst the rose gold palette ticks all the boxes. Circular, with a huge mirror in the lid and holding 10 shadows and a highlighter shade. It really is a beautiful palette. The shades inside are just my colours. Rosy, plummy, and warm with a mix of neutral matte shades, a pop of shimmer and glint of metallic, it’s a very versatile palette for both muted day wear and glam evening. I also feel that I should be carrying this palette around all the time just for the sheer fact that I am obsessed with the purple glittery lid. Like all Tarte shadows, the formulation is incredibly silky and smooth with a great pigmentation. I do love that you can use them wet and dry, however I do find that the darker matte shades are a little more difficult to work with and can lay down slightly patchy but they do blend out easily. When you purchase the Love, Trust and Fairy Dust palette from QVC, you will also receive a free eye shadow brush worth around £20.
The Pretty Things and Fairy Wings Brush Collection has to be one of the cutest collections I’ve ever seen. A set of five brushes, with pink handles and star tipped ends, these brushes are to die for. They are just £19 at QVC, and on the Tarte website they are £36. An absolute bargain!
- 1 x Eyeshadow Brush – a lightly tapered tip and denser bristles make this eye brush multi-functional
- 1 High Beam Highlighter Brush – densely packed bristles allow for application of a concentrated glow
- 1 x Chiselled Cheek Brush – full and angled bristles sweep on blush, contour, or bronzer with ease
- 1 x Domed Powder Brush – flawlessly buffs your favourite powder formulas
- 1 x Diffuse Highlighter Brush – loosely packed bristles create a more ethereal luminescence
As a huge skincare lover, I am so pleased to be able to try the Maracuja Oil. I’ve been dying to try this for so long and now I have the new Limited Edition Marajuca Gold Oil which contains gold flakes. Designed to even out my complexion whilst giving a healthy glow, the oil is multi purpose and can be used as a serum, primer, moisturiser, softener and conditioner and does not need to be solely used on the face, but can be used on your hair and nails as well.
One thing that Tarte do amazingly well are the lipsticks. I seem to have developed quite the collection and I have just added the Tarte Glide & Go Buttery Lipstick duo into the mix. I adore the cardboard packaging as opposed to using plastic, as well as the cute designs printed upon them. The lipsticks themselves have a balm like formulation that leaves a semi sheer finish but with intense hydration and pigmentation. Rosy View is a pink rose mauve and Berry Cruiser is a creamy plum berry. Both beautiful shades have gone straight into my handbag!
The Tarte Tartlette Flirt Eyeshadow Palette has just become my go-to palette for being the perfect combination of shades that I could ever need. Especially as I need to pack light for my upcoming work week, the Tarte Flirt palette is coming with me for the ride. When I received this at the same time as the Love, Trust and Fairy Dust palette, all my attention was drawn to the sparkly beauty of LTFD. It was only when I sat down to play with each palette that I realised that Flirt was absolute goals. I mean, just look at the colours. You can create several looks from just 6 colours and the shades in the palette suit me so much. I think this could possibly be my favourite mini palette ever! This does also come with an eyeshadow brush when you purchase from QVC, which is a brilliant blending brush.This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
