About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Tarte's Starlet

Cue the Angels singing. As I mentioned, I get giddy with all the holiday collection launches. It's a great time to experience lines you might be unfamiliar with, because they're offering great values & samplers. However with some kits, you realize after you get them home & play with them that there are more duds than winners. Not with the Starlet collection from Tarte. This is how it should be done! There's not a dud in sight with this collection. Plus you'll actually use the box to house trinkets(love the lucite knobs!), it's so classic it will adapt to any home decor.
The collection offers pretty much all the eyeshadows you'll ever need- day, night, metallic & matte are included. A total of 24 eyeshadows housed in 2 of the drawers are broken down into 6 color quads for easy color wardrobing. But think outside of the box- the sky's the limit. I've used 2 shades from the middle drawer (far right Leading Lady on top & Diva on bottom) as a bronzer & blusher. I also have often used the taupe shade Idol from the top right quad to fill in my brows. Also included are samples of Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara & multipEYE lash primer.
The Tarte cult favorite bronzer, Park Avenue Princess is included in the bottom tray meant for cheeks. Also included are 2 Amazonian Clay 12 Hour blushes in Glory & Starlet. Rounding out the group is Amazonian Clay Shimmer Powder in Rose.
Using the soft bronze shadows Popular & Timeless from the middle tray for an easy day look.
Gilded silver shadows Celebrity & Superstar brighten the lid in this shot. Again the Idol shadow was used to fill in my brows in both shots. At a reasonable $52, you get a lot of bang for your buck with the Starlet. I would think any make-up lover would rejoice at finding this under the tree. Dare I say it's one of my top 2 beauty best buys for the holidays? I just did.

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
