Tarte Cosmetics – First Impressions
If you know me, you know I’ve never been a die-hard fan of Tarte Cosmetics. I love certain products (listed in video) but I can’t say Tarte has ever been a brand I’ve had faith in when purchasing new products…
For that reason – I thought I would give the brand a shot at redemption by purchasing & reviewing some products I’ve never used or worn before.

Tarte Products Featured:
Light-medium coverage (leaning more towards light)
Not very buildable. Applied two coats yet didn’t cover my imperfections well
I would not recommend this or personally repurchase
It seemed to make the foundation sheerer – absorbing some of the foundation from my face
I would use a different foundation brush or a damp beauty blender instead
Dried out on the inner corners where highlight shade was applied
Doesn’t cover my dark circles & I do not have dramatic circles
Overall light coverage – Shape Tape is better IMO!
Such a bright color & very pigmented
The formula is hydrating & feels very nice on the lid
For a powerful affect, apply with a damp flat-shadow brush
Looks like a highlighter when swatched but applies like a subtle shadow on face
Perfect for the summer – would pair well with a light-makeup look for summer
Very youthful & definitely brightens the face
Very pretty peachy-nude shade
Super convenient – can grab & go without having to figure out which liner matches which lipstick & takes up less space in your bag!
It is a hydrating lipstick & lasted for about two hours before I needed to reapply
Beautiful color with powerful pigment! You do not need a lot of product
Blends beautifully – is not chalky or streaky. No shine
