So as you can see, the set comes with three gorgeous boxes that can definitely be reusable. (I plan on storing some makeup products in mine!) Let’s dive into each box!
So the first box, which is the small pink one on top, contains 5 FULL SIZE tarte Lipsurgence lip cremes. These are some of my favorite lip products from Tarte and I was thrilled to see they included 5 brand new full sized products in here!
Wonder : Pink Rose
Thoughtful : Brown Mauve
Promise : Berry
Precious : Nude Mauve
All of these are extremely creamy, highly pigmented and last a LONG time on the lips! Promise is definitely my favorite out of the four!
Included in the second box are 2 full size smolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liners in Brown & Fig and 2 full size Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in black
smolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liners in Fig & Brown. I love how versatile this product is! You can use it as a liner, or even as an eyeshadow base! The smudger on the opposite end really comes in handy.
Full Sized Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara. I am SO glad they included the original Lights, Camera, Lashes rather than the Lights, Camera, Flashes mascara! As much as I love that one, I love this one 10x more! I didn’t open either of these to swatch them as I already have a few mascaras open at the moment, but you have heard me rave about these time and time again!
Fig : Deep plum
Brown : Dark Brown
And last but not least, the palette! Containing 16 new eyeshadows in both matte & shimmer, there are countless looks that can be created! I was actually shocked at just how many matte shades there are!
Gorgeous packaging as always! I think what I love most about the packaging, is just how slim & compact it is! It’s not overly bulky and can easily be stored away without taking up a ton of space. Keep in mind, this does not include a mirror.
There are no shadow names on the palette itself. I believe there is a plastic sleeve that lays over this stating the names, but mine didn’t have that when I received this. Sorry!
As you can see there is a wide range of colors – Browns, purples, greens & taupes. There are 9 matte shadows included and 7 shimmer shades. A few of the colors were hit or miss with pigmentation as most tarte shadows are, but for the most part they were all creamy, blendable and easy to work with.
First Row Swatches
Second Row Swatches
Third Row Swatches (The two highlight shades had the least pigmentation)
Fourth Row Swatches
Overall, I am in LOVE with this kit! The price is absolutely fantastic and I love that you can either gift the entire product at once or break it up and split it among your best girlfriends!
Like I said, this is a TSV (Today’s Special Value) on QVC, so if you want to lock in the sale price of $49.98, act fast! Tomorrow the price will go up! This is also available on easy pay for 2 payments of $24.99!
Will you be picking this up for yourself or as a gift?
Availability : QVC

I will admit I am SUPER tempted with this deal! I’ve been looking at every review and YouTube video I come across trying to decide what to do. Definitely a fabulous deal, but I think if it were even $5 cheaper it would be a no-brainer for me!
