Do you love Tarte kits? I do! Tarte puts together some of the best value kits for me personally since they cater to all skin types & tones. I happen to be extremely fair so I really appreciate being able to find shades that match for me. The Tarte Beauty Without Boundaries Kit in Light contains 8 items including some brand new products to the line & specialty brushes. Each product in the kit was included by Tarte to “defy the boundaries of conventional makeup” & is said to be for “anyone looking for a complete collection of everyday beauty essentials”. That’s a big promise!
The Tarte Beauty Without Boundaries Kit in Light contains a BB tinted treatment primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30, BB tinted undereye corrector (exclusive to QVC until 11/30/13), Lights, Camera, Flashes! mascara in black, Lights, Camera, Lashes! waterproof inner rim liner in black, LipSurgence power pigment in Awakening, a rose pink (exclusive to QVC until 11/30/13), Undereye brush, Special edition complexion brush (exclusive to QVC until 11/30/13), & a very nice sized makeup bag.
The bag itself has a really nice chevron pattern- not too much one season although definitely appropriate for fall! It is also much larger than I had expected…I have clutches smaller than this! I love that it is a bigger size because sometimes you just need a bag that can fit more for traveling. This would also be a perfect gift, plenty of room!
Tarte BB Tinted Undereye Corrector– I was super excited about this, I’m so fair that many undereye correctors just change the darkness to an off color rather than neutralizing. This is a creamy product & definitely peach toned which is meant to correct. This might be a tad too peach for my pale skin but it definitely neutralized my darkness without accentuating dryness under the eyes. This concealer is extremely creamy which makes it easy to blend but I do recommend topping it with an ultra-light dusting of setting powder so it won’t crease. (exclusive to QVC until 11/30/13)
Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes! Mascara in Black– This is a wonderful mascara that is a bit on the dry side so it builds up volume & length with very little effort. It is also a very pigmented black shade which my blonde lashes appreciate! I don’t have issues with smudging or flaking & how cute is this packaging?
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Waterproof Inner Rim Liner in Black– This is an ultra creamy pencil that glides on the waterline with ease. I have allergy eyes so trying something meant specifically for the inner rim was a treat! The pigment is great, ultra black. This stayed on my better on my upper eye rim than on the bottom but performed better than most shades. This also seemed to be a tad easier to remove than move waterproof pencils.
Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment in Awakening- Described as a rose pink this is a brand new lip product from Tarte. I love Tarte lip products so I was very excited for this one! The shade is very creamy & more pigmented than their Lip Surgence pencils. You have a twist up lip crayon so it doesn’t need sharpening. I really liked the finish on this, more creamy but not shiny. It is somewhere between a matte & natural satin maybe? This had a really nice wear time & although I didn’t find it particularly moisturizing it also wasn’t uncomfortable on the lips. (exclusive to QVC until 11/30/13)
Tarte Special Edition Complexion Brush– While most people don’t love double ended brushes I actually do. They save me time because I just flip it right over & continue on my perfect skin path! One side has a synthetic pointed head which makes applying to specific areas a breeze while the other side is a synthetic flat top for buffing. Simple! (exclusive to QVC until 11/30/13)
I wanted to show a simple look using all of the products in this kit for a day of running errands. The only products I added from my own stash were eyeshadow, blush, finishing powder, brow products, & a spot concealer which I listed below.
Overall, I’m quite happy with this look! I don’t this this kit is everything you need for a full look but on a natural day it wouldn’t need much additional! I think these products also work really well together to create a look & the styling of the brush handles & the bag is on trend while still be unique. I think this set is a great value! You can sign up here for first access when the set becomes available on QVC.
