The Carried Away with Tarte Collector’s Set for Holiday 2012 was the perfect introduction into the brand for me. It has products that reflects what Tarte is all about. Not only is this set perfect for the beauty enthusiast but it’s also the perfect gift to that someone looking for their first makeup set, looking for a travel set or looking for an intro into the brand.
According to Sephora…
What it is:
A striking collection of tarte favorites for eyes, lips, and cheeks in a glimmering, gold bag.

Travel beautifully with this impressive collection of Tarte essentials. The all-inclusive set features six eye shadow quads for a show-stopping palette of bold, high-payoff shades in both shimmering and matte formulas. The deluxe maracuja glosses will perk up any pout with a mix of neutral and stunning shades, ranging from pale petal pink to deep crimson.

What else you need to know:
Each purely pigmented shadow is named after a place on the map where members of the Tarte team have traveled.
I think it’s brilliant to have named each of the shadows that way. And it matches the color as well. So for $54 you are really getting a lot of product here.
My favorite product in this set has to be the blush, the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Adventurous. Because of that, I fell in love with the line of blushes. I have bought 3 more blushes since then. You can build then up or sheer them out depending on your preference.
And my next favorite would have to be the eyeshadow palette. You have all the colors you could possibly need in this palette. When traveling, you can take it with you by itself or the whole set. I love that the colors have been grouped according to which shades works best with but that’s not to stop anybody from mixing and matching.
And the travel portfolio? What’s not to love? It houses all of the items in this set plus more. And the brush that’s included is actually a good one. I’ve been using it everyday for the past 3 weeks and I have yet to see it shed. It does a good job of depositing product and blending it.
I would definitely recommend this set to anybody whether you’re looking for an introduction into the brand or you’re looking for a gift, this is perfect.
I got mine at Sephora for $54.
