The Tarte 4 Piece Deluxe Lash Kit was available in stores over the holidays and I purchased it at the excellent price of $30 CAD. This Tarte holiday kit is great for someone who is venturing into high-end makeup and not willing to splurge on full sizes yet. I love kits like these because they let you try a bunch of little different products without investing in the full sizes you do not know if you like yet. And come on, the little mini packaging is adorable! In this review I will not be talking about the individual products but the value of the whole kit altogether.
The Tarte 4 piece deluxe lash kit comes with a 0.14 Fl. Oz multiplEYE Primer,0.16 Fl. Oz Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4 in 1 Mascara, 0,16 Fl. Oz Lights Camera Flashes Statement Mascara and 0.002 Oz Light Camera Lashes- Inner Rim Liner. All sample size products are around half the size amount of that in the full sizes with the exception of the Inner Rim Liner, which is less than a quarter.
The packaging for the Primer and Inner Rim Liner is basically an exact miniature of the full size products. The mascaras on the other had are made of a plastic with snakeskin detailing in gold and purple. The originals have this pattern as well but in a faux leather pouch. The box that this set comes in is also amazing. I love Tartes packaging because it is so chic and original. I also love the combinations of colours they use. Gold and purple is the way to go!
I heard that lot of celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington Whitely, use Tarte cosmetics because they are eco friendly and cruelty free. Models like Rosie enjoy using products like these because for their jobs chemicals and toxins are being used on their faces all day during photoshoots etc. Some of these products are not the best for the skin and yet they still have to look flawless. So, on their days off when they do wear their own makeup they choose products from Tarte because it is relatively better for their body than what they wear on the runways. I really enjoy that all of their products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten (As stated here ). They even have a line that is vegan! Who would have thought!
Overall the value of the kit is amazing. You get to try out 4 unique products for only $30. This is amazing for the person who is just getting into high-end makeup so you do not need to splurge on every product blindly. This holiday kit is still available on the Tarte Website. Trust me, it is really good! Separate reviews on each of the products will be up soon! I give this kit a 5 out of 5.
