THE TARTE THREAD!!!

[ Edited ]

NEWS, UPCOMING COLLECTIONS, DISCUSSIONS AND SWATCHES!

 

I was surprised there wasn't a dedicated thread for the brand especially since they have really upped their game recently. So since pretty much every brand has a thread I thought to start one for Tarte!

Yikes! The handles are gorgeous, but those bristles just look like they're subpar quality. 

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

When you have an account on tartecosmetics.com, they offer you a "deluxe birthday gift" during your birthday month. Has anyone received it? If so, do you mind sharing what it is? I'm trying to decide if it's worth placing an order now (with the 20% off birthday code) or waiting for a better sale.

This month was the tarteist lash paint mascara. They have 20% off every now and then, so it would come down to whether you are interested in that mascara or not.

 

Also the 20% does not apply to a few items (incl. shape tape concealer)

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

My order arrived about an hour ago. The shadow pallet smells like chocolate! I found it to not be very pigmented at all which is so disapointing. I had to use several swipes and many colors still didn't show up on my arm and I'm very pale. Smiley Sad

 

The brush fibers seem fine and are very soft but the handles are just cheap plastic. The colored bristles stained really badly on the first swatch.  I'm actually pretty disapointed with both the brushes and the shadow items. I think I should have waited to purchase until I saw it in store but FOMO. I otherwise wouldn't have gotten them. 

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

I've been going back and forth on placing an order all day but I think I'm going to pass after hearing your thoughts. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I wish you had had a better experience Smiley Sad

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

Smiley Sad i'm sorry it's a pass. I really wanted to love it but I have to really pack the color on over a bright white base to see anything. The colors are all pretty muddy and the cool tones look terrible on my skin because of the black base. 

 

i like the highlighter but I could have gotten that on it's own somewhere else. 

 

the brushes are nice though, just be careful with the handles not to chip them.

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

Oh wow, very disappointing @rastika! Smiley Sad I'm grateful for your thoughts on the palette. I had been considering jumping on that one as soon as it came in stock. The swatches online look beautiful, but I always take those with a grain of salt. I think I'll pass on it now, I really don't need it anyway.

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

Glad I could help. Sorry this is a pass, I really wanted to love it

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

I may or may not have placed a few orders for water bottles and Unicorn horns >.>

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

My brushes just arrived. Smiley Very Happy

Re: THE TARTE THREAD!!!

So I pulled the trigger and bought the palette as a pre-tax refund gift to myself (I was going to wait for reviews, but my willpower is a joke). Totally didn't need to download the Sephora ap -- if you google the name of the palette, the page for it will come up on Sephora's website. 

 

Now begins the waiting game!
