This set is exclusively available at Ulta and Ulta.com. This set includes:

  • Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss (there is no shade name or number on the bottle)
  • Natural Cheek Tint in True Love
  • Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara (Full-sized)
  • Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder
  • EmphasEYES Amazonian Clay Water Proof Liner in Bronze(Full-sized)
  • EmphasEYES Amazonian Clay Liner Brush
  • Travel Makeup Bag

The lipgloss in this kit is a non-shimmery hot pink. I looked online but I could not find a shade name or number for this gloss. I really liked this gloss and wanted to buy a full-size but it seems this shade is unavailable outside this set. I really liked this gloss because it wasn’t sticky, had a pleasant scent, and lasts around 3 to 4 hours on my lips. I also felt that this gloss was moisturizing and not drying at all.

The cheek tint is a hot pink tint for cheeks. It looks really dark in the tube but it goes on sheer. I had a few issues with the application of this stain, as it shifted and moved the placement of my foundation when I swiped the stick directly on my cheeks. The next day I tried swirling my finger in it and dabbing it on my cheeks and this still moved my foundation around. I am wearing Cargo Oil-Free Foundation for reference. Despite the application woes, it really liked the look this stain gave to my cheeks. I am very fair skinned and the color of this stain works well with my complexion. This lasted about 4 hours on my cheeks before touch-ups.

I have already reviewed the mascara in this set. If you would like to see my review, go to the following link: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara

The finishing powder just seems like any fine-milled finishing powder I have used. It says it’s supposed to shrink pores after several weeks, but only time will tell. Over the past week I have seen no difference in my pore size.

The liner and brush were good products. They didn’t really excite me, but the liner has excellent staying power and pigmented color.

Overall, I loved this kit and would definitely purchase it again for the variety of products and value.

I ordered the Tarte Achiote Cheek Tint and Lip Luster Duo from QVC. I LOVE the cheek tint in this set! The color is such a universally flattering shade. I think this shade would look good on just about anyone!

I also have to give Tarte bonus points for the super cute packaging on this! The texture is that of a creamy gel. This formula is easy to blend and is easy to build the color up. On the skin, it has a slight waxy feel, but this gives you a nice glow that powder blushes can’t. This cheek tint usually lasts me 3 hours but if I layer blush on top I can double that. Since this product is so easy to use, touch-ups are no problem. I have been using my fingers to apply this and have had no issues. I also have to give kudos on the scent; its a faint, fruity scent.

My final verdict, this cheek tint has become a staple in my beauty arsenal. This color is so natural looking and it goes with any look I’m going with. I really can’t say enough good things about this cheek tint and I think I might weep a tear of sadness when mine finally runs out.

I recieved this as a sample with my Tarte Achiote Cheek Tint and Lip Luster Duo from QVC. I loved this mascara so much, I bought a full size! It wears all day without flaking or smearing. It gives my lashes just the right amount of lift and definition. My lashes have a hard time keeping a curl and this mascara keeps my curl all day!

I love Tarte products because they are formulated without a lot of bad stuff like parabens and petro-chemicals.

If you are looking for a natural mascara that gives you natural looking definition and holding curl all day, pick this up!
