Tarte Spring 2011 Collection: Get Glowing!

The hits keep coming with Tarte’s new Spring Collection. Just about everything is going on my wishlist!

Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum ($32) -I’m very anxious to try this because I’m a big fan of the foundation. This natural skin brightener is infused with Amazonian clay, vitamins and tea extract to moisturize and replenish skin as it adds a hint of glimmer. Amazonian clay minimizes oil and hydrates skin to keep everything in balance. Try applying a pearl-sized amount alone or mix with your foundation.

Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush ($25) *Sephora exclusive* These solar-baked blushes are infused with Amazonian Clay, nature’s most perfect ingredient. These nutrient rich and skin-nourishing Amazonian clay blushes restore harmony for a flawless finish that lasts all day. The soft blush is great for all skin types and is available in 8 shades:

  • amused (bright pink)
  • blissful (warm peach)
  • blushing bride (plummy rose)
  • dollface (light pink)
  • exposed (nude)
  • flush (deep berry)
  • natural beauty (red)
  • tipsy (coral)–I WANT

Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder ($30) – Add some luminosity to your complexion. Dust lightly for a soft, subtle sheen or add more for lavish radiance. Available in two shades:

  • champagne: works best with bronzey looks, brown & neutral eyes
  • rose: works best with bold/bright loos, smokey & pastel eyes

LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Luster ($24) – one of my favorite lip stains. So many times lip stains are drying, but these are sooo glossy and moisturizing. They have a wonderful minty tingle and come in gorgeous colors! I own a few of these and I just purchased the new Achiote from QVC and it’s quickly become a staple in my makeup bag.

  •  fever (red)
  •  pouty (berry)
  •  frisky (bright pink)
  •  adored (light pink)
  •  glisten (peach)
  •  buff (nude)

LipSurgence™ natural lip tint ($24) in Peaceful – this was previously only available in a set, but due to popular demand, Tarte released it on it’s own. I pruchased the set this was included in and I’m thrilled I can repurchase! It’s a beautiful neutral peach.

Lust, Peaceful and Fiery

emphasEYES™ Natural Inner Rim Brightener ($18) – This was previously only available in a set, but now is sold on it’s own. The soft, fine tip gently glides along the lower inner rim and inner corner of eyes to instantly brighten for a wide-awake effect. I NEED this! I’m down with anything that can make me look more awake!

neutralEYES Natural Eye Palette ($44) – oh geez, they had me at neutral eyes! The palette contains 10 Amazonian clay-infused shadows in neutral & universally flattering shades, emphasEYES™ aqua-gel eyeliner in brown, a double-ended shadow brush & a free sample of lifted™ natural eye primer with Firmitol™. Apply lifted™ first as a long-wear shadow base that also helps decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 51% (in just 10 minutes). I have to have this, I like the mix of matte and shimmering shades.

Top row (L-R): matte bone, matte taupe, matte olive green, shimmering bronze, matte deep teal
             Bottom row (L-R): matte soft pink, shimmering soft peach, matte brown, matte plum, matte navy

  1. I’m loving their new releases so far! Still waiting to get my hands on one of those blushes, and a sample of the serum.

  2. Mamavalveeta03 says:

    I ordered the blush in “Tipsy”–so perfect with the spring colors–and also, a set that includes a cream blush and lip luster in “Achiote” from QVC.com (they may still have it–a lovely coral color! I guess I’m doubling up on coral…)

    • Mama,
      You will LOVE achiote–the blush is lovely and buildable and the lip luster is gorgeous! Of course I am a coral ho!!

  3. I have and love Smooth Operator Illuminating Serum, but I think it might be the earlier one without the Amazon Clay. I still love it thou! I think those blushes look beautiful & definitely worth a buy 🙂
