One Makeup Brand For Life



If I asked you to choose one brand of makeup that you had to use for the rest of your life, would you know which brand that may be?

I’m sure there would be some that would prefer to go high end like Chanel, La Mer, or Guerlain or something like that…but I think I’m keeping my brand fairly simple.  I mean, it’s not drug store makeup nor would it be considered “cheap”, but this brand is the best that I’ve found when I take into consideration “all around” quality.

That brand would be TARTE cosmetics!


I have used many products from Tarte and have had the best all around performance out of them.
I personally think that their foundations are truly hard to beat.  I’ve been on the search for the “perfect foundation” and I was pretty unsuccessful until I tried their new Rainforest of the Sea Water foundation!  It is AMAZING.  It provides a super lightweight feel on your face (like you’re wearing nothing), but gives you a matte medium-full coverage!  I’ve also been using the Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer lately too and I think it’s one of my top favorite concealers!    772767
The Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation is also great!  I find that it can be a little heavy, so it’s a little too much for me for every day wear now that I’m not in an office setting…but it might be perfect for others – it’s just a personal preference thing.  However, I will say if I’m going out, that will be the foundation I reach for!
I first got hooked on Tarte after watching many YouTube makeup review videos and tutorials using the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation.  This foundation is a powder foundation and I thought there was absolutely NO WAY possible that it would provide the coverage I was looking for…but boy was I wrong!  I loved it!  I used it for quite a while, and still do occasionally – but I do find myself reaching for liquid foundations more lately for some reason.


I also bought this brush when I got the foundation and this brush is a MUST for this foundation.  It applies the powder perfectly.


QUICK TIP REGARDING TARTE PRODUCTS – When they do a new launch, they sometimes launch their products on QVC before launching online.  I really love watching out for these times because you not only end up getting a great deal on the products, but most of the time, they feature brushes that go with the products that you essentially get for free.  I have quite a few of Tarte brushes and I’ve gotten most of mine that way. 

Their mascaras are hard to beat as well!  I’ve tried quite a few different ones from Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara, to Lights, Camera, Lashes, as well as the Best in Faux lash extending fibers!  I have to say that to this day the Gifted mascara still remains my favorite.




A lot of times, you can catch Beauty Brands having a sale on mascaras and end up getting this mascara for $10 dollars – so always keep your eyes open for those deals!

 As far as blushes, I have multiple colors of the Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush.  These can be a bit pricey, but you won’t regret purchasing them.  They are extremely pigmented, last all day, and will last you quite a long time – look at it as an INVESTMENT – well…that’s always the excuse I give to my husband – hah!


Tarte also has AMAZING gift sets that come out around Christmas, so you can really get a lot of product for a reasonable amount of money!  I remember I got one from QVC and it was a three-piece set which included two eye shadow palettes, 4 or 5 lipsticks, 3-4 eyeliners, 2 mascaras, 2 12-hour blushes and a few brushes for like $70 if my memory serves me right!  All of these products were full sizes also, so it was a hell of a deal!

Another reason why I’d choose this brand is that it’s a generally “healthy” makeup for you.  The CEO of Tarte, Maureen Kelly started this company in 1999 out of her one bedroom apartment.  She wanted something that was more natural for her skin so she created a product that she likes to call “high performance naturals”.  All of the products are cruelty free, are formulated without parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten.  They also use superfruits, plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally-derived ingredients.

They also have a line of sunless tanning lotions as well as skincare, and they are always releasing new products and stay on top of the makeup game by staying ahead of trends!
So, if I had to choose, Tarte would definitely be my brand!

So now I’m asking you – if you had to choose one makeup brand for the rest of your life, what would it be?  Hit me up on Twitter or comment below!

Seriously – try Tarte out – you won’t regret it!
