The Tarte Cosmetics thread
What do you think of Tarte ?
Any products you think are musthaves ?

I'm dying to try their limited edition 'Peaches & Creme' Oil-free liquid powder mineral foundation SPF 20


Image from www.tartesometics.com

It's gotten great reviews on Makeup Alley already despite not really having hit the shelves yet (I know, because I had a friend try and get it for me several places in NY, and the SAs hardly knew the product nor had gotten it in store yet) ..
Have you tried it? and what did you think ?

I wish the line was avaiable in Europe, as it is it's limited to the US (Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman among others), Canada and a single store in Australia.

I contacted tarte and was told:

our website as we wish to expand into Europe in the future.
From the tarte website:

Last I heard there were no plans to release Peaches & Cream outside of Tarte's website. I know that QVC had the item for awhile and it was actually an exclusive there, but they have since stopped selling it there.

I love Tarte's eyeshadow palettes -- I have several: The A List, Pop Tarte & Social Butterfly. I have photos up in the "What's in your Makeup Bag?"

I have tried Tarte's tinted moisturizer but sadly it was not for me. The coverage was too light for what I was looking for and I think it broke me out, despite being oil-free. Total bummer.

As for their gel blushes, perhaps what they are best known for, I did not care for them. I have a few of them and they sit pretty much unloved. I don't have particularly oily skin but they do not last on me at all. Plus I am very fair and a lot of the shades are way too dark for my skintone. Dollface was a nice color but again, it didn't last and I have a lot of other blush products that give a similar color but last longer.

I just bough the dark defense concealer. It's fantastic. The undertone is perfect or concealing dark under eye circles unlike a lot of other yellow/peach toned concealers.

I bought this as a present for my mom and my sister, since I'm always (really, always) tending to their eyebrows. And I ended up getting one for myself, too. It's fun! I like the little pencil and the powder, nice!

Stocked up on a few bits when I was in New York in August. Love the clean slate primer and bronzer.

Update - I got it in Fair or was it Light ? - Cant recall because I chucked it soon after trying it.. didn't get the hang of it and besides it was seriously 'yellowish' in color.

LOVE their eyeshadow palettes although they do tend to double up on colors quite a lot, but the quality and payoff of the eyeshadows is super
