Hey there beautiful people,
Welcome to my first official blog post! It’s taken a lot of time to start everything up and I still need to up my skills, but here it is and I hope you enjoy it!
So it all started one day when my favourite Australian YouTubers Snapchatted that they were going on a trip with Tarte™, they were flown to the Hayman Islands off the coast of Australia. So I followed Tarte™ at tartecosmetics on snapchat and I binged watched each and every snap in complete awe of their new products. AAAAND that’s where my obsession was born.
Okay, so let’s talk about why Tarte™ is on my beauty products wishlist, before we get into the beautiful makeup that will probably be on your wishlists as well. TARTE™ was founded by the beautiful Maureen Kelly in 1999 in her own bedroom Apartment, after not finding satisfactory products she decided to create her own brand. She created a line that is trademarked as high-performance naturals™. Tarte™ is an eco-chic and cruelty-free brand that helps your skin instead of harms your skin. It’s free from Parabens, sulphates and it is gluten free. They also care about the environment by supporting cooperatives in the Rainforest and develop sustainable components that can be re-used. You can read the Founder, Maureen’s statement here.
Now that we have established how one of the biggest cosmetics brands established themselves and why Tarte is one of the greatest brands let’s get into the wishlist 😉
1)Tarteist ™Pro collection
The Tartiest™ PRO collection is all infused with amazonian clay for long lasting wear, as well as vanilla extract which is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties. Coconut is also infused for it’s moisture and antibacterial properties and the amazing vitamin E and Shea butter.
Tartiest™ Amazonian Clay palette
First on my list is this beautiful palette comes in 16 longwearing matte, high pigmented shadows infused with Amazonian clay, plus 4 luster shades. This palette includes a new smart-blend technology meaning you don’t need to be a pro at makeup to get that perfectly blended eyeshadow. you can see how this beauty is on the top of the list with it’s amazing shades and variety of colours.
Retails on the Tarte store for R690.
Tartiest™ PRO glow highlight and contour palette.
Next is this palette that consists of four intense highlighting powders that deliver a buildable, shimmer effect and two universal, matte contouring shades. It is also infused with nutrient-rich Amazonian clay which balances skin for the best payoff. For those beauties that love a good contour, from what I’ve seen, this palette is the best in the business. 😉 This badboy goes for R610 on tartecosmetics.com.
Tartiest™ PRO glow liquid highlighter in Exposed.
This highlighter comes in two amazing shades, Exposed (which is a nude highlight ) and Sparkler (which is a rose gold highlight). It is a ultra creamy, buildable formula that’s oil free and you can mix it with your foundation or wear it alone for natural glow. It retails for R380 per tube on the Tarte website.

4) Shape Tape Contour Concealer in the shade- very fair
This product is on my wishlist because it has absolutely amazing reviews, it’s been dubbed the best concealer and a “miracle” concealer. It’s definitely a cult favourite. This product sculpts and highlights imperfections and it is a full coverage concealer with the promise that it is lightweight and non- cakey. It also has a longwear formula that can be used for highlighting and contouring the face. From the reviews it’s definitely worth the R320 price tag.
5) Rainforest of the Sea™ Water Foundation
Now this foundation is high on my list of foundations to try. I’ve seen tons of tutorials with this amazing foundation and I’ve fallen in love. It’s a hydrating formula that’s full coverage and features 20% water to quench dry skin, such as mine. It’s an all rounder foundation that’s supposed to cover every flaw whilst still hydrating the skin which contains Rainforest of the Sea™ antioxidants. The hypoallergenic formula helps restore, brighten and defend skin from free radical damage and early signs of aging for a smooth, soft, radiant complexion. Who doesn’t want that? This magic in a bottle goes for R500 on the tartecosmetics.com website.
6) Maracuja Oil
Tarte’s™ magical Maracuja oil, another cult favourite. This product is great for those girls who want bright, glowy and hydrated skin. It is said to be rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin C for firmer, brighter and smoother skin. As a girl with Dry skin and I suffer with wind burn in winter, this is a definite must have! However it comes with a pricetag, if you know what I mean 😉 Find it at tartecosmetics for R640.
7) Tarte™ Skin care range
Drink of H20 Hydrating boost.
Drink of H20, it sounds really refreshing doesn’t it? This badboy has hyaluronic acid and Tarte’s exclusive Rainforest of the Sea™ antioxidant complex. It replenishes electrolytes in the skin that get removed by all the harsh toxins and aggressors we experience everyday. It’s Vegan friendly and hypoallergenic, it also has powerful anti-aging and skin-balancing properties. Everything a person wants in a great moisturizer. It retails for R510 on the tartecosmectics website.
Rainforest of the Sea™ Deep Dive Cleansing Gel
Another cult favourite and possibly a great thing to have in your “get great skin” arsenal. One of the reasons why it is on my wishlist is because it’s a 3-in-1 product. It has a exfoliator, cleanser and face mask all in one. It’s vegan friendly and great for all skin types, it can be used on a regular basis without stripping skin’s moisture or left on as a treatment mask to absorb toxins and reveal smooth, sexy, glowing skin. With it’s amazing ingredients also located from the Rainforest of the Sea™ this stick is a great product especially for travel or sleeping over at the significant other’s house and you want to pamper yourself. Available at tartecosmetics.com for R300.
