Beautiful Beginnings with Tarte

Beautiful Beginnings with Tarte

What was the first Tarte product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Tarte product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I had never tried Tarte before having the blog, so the first product I reviewed on the blog was Tarte’s Purse Your Lips Lipgloss Clutch back in 2008. I loved that you were able to get so many glosses to try, though they were fairly tiny! Next, I tried an eyeshadow palette which was so-so. I’m still kind of waiting to fall in love with Tarte you could say. I do like their new Amazonian Blushes, even if they don’t live up to their over-the-top 12-hour claim.

When possible, I much, much prefer a two-in-one product.  However, for extra coverage for when I’m going to be outdoors for extended periods of time, I’d actually rather have a separate sunscreen.  For instance, I wear SPF 55 for the hour that I play tennis in the AM, but for the rest of the day, I use a moisturizer with SPF 20 in it.
