THE TARTE THREAD!!!
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!   They have been slaying with the recent launches and truly on a roll with more amazing products to come!

How to get makeup to look flawless
I see so many girls on Youtube with absolutely flawless makeup,like Karisma Collins,and Andrea Russett, and I'm just wondering on how to achieve that look?

HELP FAKE PALETTE?
Hi all,   I hope someone can help me as I purchased a KVD shade and light eyeshadow palette off a fb makeup page and believe it may be fake. I did ask prior to purchasing the item and the seller assured me she purchased it from Sephora.   I live in Australia where we currently only have 3 Sephora stores BOOOO none which are close enough for me to compare the two. I have done some research online but have not been able to find out enough to determine whether it is real or not. I have compared it to my KVD shade and light contour palette which i know is 100% authentic as i purchased it from Sephora Sydney last year.   The quality of the packaging mirror size and lettering seem the same the only difference seems to be the serial numbers the font is different and one is longer then the other but I'm unsure if this is because one is a face and the other is an eye palette. The quality also seems questionable however i can't say i have swatched the real thing but again just comparing it to my shade and light contour it doesn't seem the same quality.   I have attached two photos the top is the contour palette and the other is the eye. If anyone could please help put my mind at ease that would be amazing xx

Do you toss old makeup?
Does anyone here ever throw their makeup away per recommended guidelines? Below seems to be the standard suggested by experts, but aside from mascara I just don’t know. I feel like I’d be better off opening a window and throwing my money out of it. If the product looks, smells, and applies fine - do you ever toss it because of age?    PRODUCT WHEN TO TOSS Powders (including blushes, bronzers, and shadows) - Two years Cream shadows and blushes - 12-18 months Oil-free foundation  - One year Cream compact foundation  - 18 months Concealers - 12-18 months Lipstick and lip liner - One year Lip gloss - 18-24 months Pencil eyeliner - Two years Liquid or gel eyeliner - Three months Mascara - Three months

Trying to color match to Marc Jacobs' Remarcable foundation

Besame Cosmetics...
If you're interested in old Hollywood glam I would highly suggest checking out this brand.  They have a small but beautiful collection of cosmetics including "Violet brightening powder" for your face and "Cake Mascara".    I have never seen anything like the mascara before. It comes in a dry cake (obviously) which you then mix with water to get the right consistency. The really cool thing about this mascara is that you can spritz it with disinfectant to get rid of bacteria, fungus, and mold. Amazing! And because you wet it every time you use it never dries out prematurely.    NOTE: Sorry this sounds a little bit like an ad, I swear they didn't pay me to say this, I'm just really excited about this brand.   EDIT: I'll review the mascara and violet powder on this post when I get them.

Wander Beauty Launch
  Lindsay Ellingson: Hi Sephora beauties!  I'm so excited to chat with all of you and share a little about Wander Beauty, a new internationally inspired beauty experience I Co-founded that launches on  Sephora.com (US & Canada) tomorrow!  I’ve been modeling for over a decade and been so fortunate to work with everyone from Valentino to Victoria’s Secret and the most talented beauty experts all over the world.  It was the best beauty school one could have. I've sat in the makeup chair for countless hours, and absorbed all of the best application tricks and beauty trends.  I've tried and tested everything and know what works. With so much traveling, I need products that can take me from day to night with ease.  You would be surprised how fast I get myself out the door with just a few of our easy to use multi-taskers.  Wander Beauty is made for women who are constantly on the go.   Divya Gugnani: I’ve been obsessed with makeup since I was a little girl and loved to use my mom’s lipsticks as crayons. She, of course, did not like that as much as I did. I’ll admit I buy more than I use but I just love to experiment. Nothing excites me more than spanning the globe on a new adventure whether it is scuba diving in Honduras or gorilla trekking in east Africa. I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and I love to explore the beauty secrets of other cultures, passed down from generations, or discover unique international ingredients and their potent powers.  My background is in finance and business but I’m truly living my dream as a Co-founder of Wander Beauty.   When Lindsay and I first met years ago, we shared a common need...to simplify our beauty routines. As a working mother of two young kids (21 months and almost 4) I’ve got five minutes to get myself together and out the door. Less is more and I wanted a few key things that could go double duty and delivery a multitude of looks as well as travel with me during my busy day.   LE: We’re on a mission to downsize your makeup bag yet we understand the need for luxurious, skincare-infused formulas that deliver real results.  My favorite part of being Creative Director is developing innovative products that work with your skin and skincare, not against it. Our formulas are cruelty free and free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates and synthetic fragrance.   DG/LE: So, what’s is Wander Beauty? Multitasking Makeup Essentials Internationally Inspired Innovation Color to Be Carried Wander Beauty is for real women, who want fuss-free, fool-proof, multi-functional makeup that makes them feel confident everyday, wherever life takes them.   LE: We launched with one hero product, our On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator. I like to call it summer in a stick. It’s the ultimate beauty enhancer with countless ways to wear it! I use the dual ended cream blush and highlighter to strobe and add a natural flush to my cheeks every morning. This and a little mascara and I'm ready for my day.         DG: My personal favorite is our Wanderout Dual Lipstick with a bright on one side (with the arrow on top) and a neutral on the other. Wanderberry and Barely There is my combo of choice. I’ll admit, sometimes I mix them both and create my own shade! The formula is infused with ingredients from eight different countries like Marula Oil (South Africa), Castor Seed Oil (Japan), Coco Seed Butter (Netherlands), Mango Seed Butter (India) and more. From my work tote to my dinner clutch it’s with me wherever I go.   DG/LE: So, we are starting this thread to share our story and how we created this beauty experience but most importantly to connect with all of you and open the dialogue for your feedback and questions. So, tell us: if you could create one beauty multi-tasker what would it be?

Q. whats a good face primer for dry, tan skin?
Hello everyone! I just need some help finding a good face primer.  I have normal to dry skin and i need a hydrating primer but I also have tan skin with yellow undertones. I've used the Rimmel London Stay Matte primer from the drugstore, its mattifying but it doesn't work well with my dry skin and it makes my skin tone look lighter and it makes my foundation appear lighter.  So I'm in the hunt for a primer that wont lighten my skin tone and make it look white or washed out. Do you guys know of any primer that's hydrating and wont lighten my skin tone or make my skin look washed out/ashy?  Would a primer that's clear or have gel like consistency would work?

Would I be cool, neutral or warm skin tone?
Almost every foundation I've tried the color is either too orange or too light. I have fair skin but it's not fair enough to need the lightest shade. I was using estee lauder double wear in shade 1n2 ecru and out of all the shades it is the one that almost matches but it is still too orange. Now I use Lancome tient idole ultra in shade 140 ivory and dual finish powder in 130 porcelain ivory and even though they are neutral tones they still make me look super orange also. What tone then would I be to get the perfect match foundation where I won't look too white or too orange?

EVE LOM oil free radiance foundation
Hi guys, I recently purchased the Eve Lom oil free radiance foundation. I love the color, staying power and the way it makes my skin feel but I have the hardest time applying it. It's on the thicker side and doesn't spread that well. I try to work in smaller sections and apply thinly but I find it looks weird and patchy in certain parts of my face.   Every once in a while I manage to apply it perfectly and it looks great but I haven't been able to figure out what the difference is. I use the hourglass primer and always do it after proper skincare. I also find that putting on powder afterwards sometimes sets it nicely and other times creates almost a weird marbled pattern on my phase.   Anyone here with this foundation and tips on applying? I've tried brush, beauty blender, fingers, you name it. Thoughts?
