Two Tarte products? Score! I'd take a bag that was entirely Tarte!



Remember getting these bags?


Info card.


Tarte Color Splash Lipstick (Salt Lyfe) ($6.13) - This is such a pretty neutral pink lipstick, perfect for me! It's a shade or two darker than what I normally wear but the tone is so pretty that I couldn't pass it along. The formula is super creamy while drying down to an almost matte, perfect for all seasons!

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (Paaarty) ($7.25) - I love the tone and shade of this blush, but it's too sparkly for me to wear. 


Biossance Squalene + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer ($3.30) -Itty bitty moisturizer. It does add quite a bit of moisture immediately after use but it' so small that I wasn't able to really tell if there were lasting effects. I did find that I really enjoy gel moisturizers more than creme or other forms.

Briogeo Blow Dry Perfection & Heat Protectant Creme (Sample) - This is the BOMB. I love this head protectant and I can definitely see a difference when I use it versus a different one, my hair is just smoother and less frizzy when I use this one. Briogeo, sponsor me, I already love your products. 


Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil ($4.79) - One of these days, I'll learn what I'm supposed to look for in a brightening products. I did use this as a Vitamin C and my skin did look nice. I stopped using it and I'm pretty sure this is sitting in my drawer of skincare to use/finish using.

Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen ($14.95) - I didn't like the way this felt on my face. I was greasy but also not, and just made me feel a bit off while it was there. This is totally a me thing and not a product thing.


Swatch: Tarte lipstick.


This bag was valued at $36.42. It's by no means one of the better valued bags, but I did get some pretty good products out of it so I found my value there. I love getting lipsticks in these bags because I have never in my life gone through a lipstick and this way I'm not spending unnecessary money!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
