TARTE Thoughtful Treasures Best-Sellers Set


During Sephora's VIB 20% sale I went ahead and picked up Tarte's Thoughtful Treasures Best-Sellers Holiday Set. I'm always open for trying new amazonian clay blushes, and I wanted to try their pure maracuja oil so I was glad I could get my hands on a miniature-sized bottle of it.

The Thoughtful Treasures Set retails for $19 USD ($23 CAD) and includes Pure Maracuja Oil (0.24 oz.), Thankful Amazonian Clay Blush (0.05 oz.) and Energy LipSurgence (0.06 oz.)

Pure Maracuja Oil is said to be "rich with Vitamin C" as well as being an "anti-aging elixir that has anti-inflammatory benefits promotes active skin recovery and delivers maximum hydration."
Thankful Amazonian Clay Blush is described as a golden pink and is Limited Edition.
* Energy LipSurgence is described as etherial pink, although it is lip tint and applies glossy with little to no color. 
I was rather disappointed with the packaging of the products. The plastic felt cheap and fragile, and the cap on my oil refused to screw back on straight.

Overall, I enjoyed the products themselves and I'm glad I picked this set up. The blush is unlike any others I own and lives up to regular amazonian blushes. The lip tint is minty which is refreshing and soothing for chapped lips (same scent / flavor as OCC Lip Tars) However, it applies very thin and didn't appear to be very hydrating.

If you're interested in trying Tarte lip tints or their maracuja oil, even if you're just a huge fan of the amazonian blushes than I'd pick this up, just for the limited edition blush. However, if you already own similar products, I would recommend passing.

Can be purchased from Sephora Online and Sephora Stores for $19 USD ($23 CAD).
