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

  • 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.

    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…)

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

  • 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 🙂

      I totally agree Tracy!
