Tarte ‘Best Face Forward’ Discovery kit, review & first impressions!

Hi guys, I hope you are well and having a fabulous Friday!

Today I have a review & first impressions on a Makeup Kit I recently received from Tarte. I own quite a few products from Tarte and I have to say that I love every single one of them, and I’m so happy that they are now available in the UK to purchase from QVC, I believe they have been available for a little while now (since last year) but they are bringing out more and more products, including this beautiful makeup kit! It is called ‘Best Face Forward’* and it includes five full size makeup essentials, a double-ended complexion brush and a gorgeous makeup bag. This kit is limited edition and will be available for one day only on June 1st for just £38.40 and you can get it on QVC UK hereIMG_6077

IMG_6063So let’s start of with the packaging, isn’t it just gorgeous?! I love the colourful chevron print, it’s just perfect for summer 🙂 The kit is available in five shades, fair, light, medium, tan and deep.

I have the Coloured Clay CC Primer in medium, which is a very interesting product to me, as I’ve never tried anything like it before. It is a correcting stick infused with colour- correcting coloured clay, it’s like a all-in-one primer and foundation stick, because it primes the skin and fills in pores, it corrects redness, covers up blemishes and evens out skin tone. It’s really smooth and easy to blend, and I have to say that it’s one of my favourite products from the set. I really like it!2Next we have the ‘Lights, Camera, Lashes’ 4-in-1 Mascara, which I already own and is one of my favourites at the moment. It’s such a popular mascara and I’ve heard so many bloggers raving about it 🙂 I really like it because it lengthens and volumises at the same time and it’s not clumpy at all! I also found out that it’s infused with plant botanicals and waxes to help treat, protect and condition lashes, which is so so amazing!IMG_6088Another beautifully packaged product is the Coloured Clay Bronzer Blush, the packaging is so beautiful inside and out! You guys know I’m a sucker for cute packaging 🙂 This is a all-in-one blush and bronzer for all skin tones, it’s such a gorgeous colour, it gives a lovely healthy glow to the face and it’s perfect to use every day. It also highlights…I just love it, the shade is ‘Pink Bronze’3Next we have the ‘LipSurgence’ Lip creme in a gorgeous pink/coral shade, (honeysuckle pink) the perfect colour for summer! This is a really creamy but pigmented shade, it’s also very long lasting and moisturising for your lips.1 The limited edition Coloured Clay Eyeshadow quad comes with four very pigmented natural shades, they are really creamy and blendable, two of them are matte and the other two slightly shimmery. I love the colour selection, they are just perfect for a day-to-night look and a smoky eye. PicMonkey CollageLast but not least we have the double-ended complexion brush, and I just love the design, a combination of gold and chevron stripes, just gorgeous! One side is domed, the other is flat, it’s very versatile and can be used to apply a lot of different products including, concealer, foundation, cream blush or bronzer etc. It also works really well with the CC primer/foundation, it just gives an airbrushed finish! 🙂IMG_6125

This gorgeous set will be available on QVC on Monday the 1st of June for one day only so don’t miss out! I love the fact that Tarte makeup isn’t just beautiful it’s also so good for your skin as all of their products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulphate, synthetic fragrances and gluten and are so good for your skin, even sensitive and problem skin like mine!
