Tarte Cosmetics - Coming to the UK!



American beauty bloggers have been raving about Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush range for some time and there are British bloggers who lucky enough to get their hands on them were just as complimentary. It went without saying that when I was in the US last year they were firmly on my wish list. 

Park Avenue Princess bronzer and Dollface blush were shades I'd noted down priced at $29 and $26 respectively so imagine my delight when I saw the Tarte Off the Cuff blush palette containing four blushes and one bronzer, including those mentioned for $42. 

I wasn't the only one who snapped up this bargain as it sold out almost immediately online so I was definitely in the right place at the right time. The palette is slightly tacky in it's glittery packaging but the slim shape makes it quite compact and would be perfect for travel. And I have to confess the 'free gift' of faux leather cuff with bow was disposed of fairly swiftly.

The Christmas period has been a great opportunity to play with these blushes and I'm pretty much in love with Park Avenue Princess for contouring and found myself reaching daily for Dollface a pretty medium pink for the perfect flushed cheek. I have dabbled with Crave but was a bit too heavy handed so need some more practice (and a Real Techniques duo fibre brush!) for application.

Whether they last for the full 12 hours remains to be seen as I haven't tested extensively but I'll keep you posted after a few tests during the working week as to how things pan out.

My fellow Brits might be wondering why I'm teasing you by raving about this fantastic blush and bronzer combo that unless you have your Summer holiday to the States booked you'll be unable to get your hands on. Well the good news is that in the next couple of months Tarte Cosmetics will be arriving to QVC.

I popped along to the QVC Spring/Summer press launch a few months ago and it would be a lie to say I didn't do a little happy dance when I spotted a table filled with Tarte Cosmetics. Details are limited as to when we'll be able to buy the products and see them demonstrated on our screens but early mumblings are around March.

I know I'm excited, are you?

Edited to add:
Word on the beauty street is Tarte Cosmetics will appearing with two shows on QVC Friday 28th March at 2pm and 6pm. For more information and a provisional list of products offered check out Really Ree's post here. And if you're too impatient to wait a couple of products have started to appear on the QVC website link.

  7. I'm so obsessed with Tarte blushes, they're gorgeous! I actually only have minis that I've bought in sets but I find them to be the perfect size. I have so much makeup I'd probably never use up a full blush anyway!
