Tarte Radiant  Rested Volume II

Tarte has a limited edition Sephora exclusive out right now that I came across the other day and had to get! It’s called Radiant & Rested: Volume II Universal Complexion & Color Collection.

Inside this little kit you have all sorts of light infused products guaranteed to make you shine and glow. The products aren’t full sized but you get pretty good bang for your buck I think.

The Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne comes in the CUTEST little rose gold quilted compact. This is actually this drew me into the collection when I first saw it. It’s really, really soft and you get great pigmentation from it. Definitely a very shimmery and “glowy” powder that gives off a golden champagne look.

Sweet LipSurgence comes in a fat pencil form and has great color payoff. The color is a pink with lots of shimmery gold in it. It goes on smoothly and really easily, like a lip balm and you get really nice shiny flattering color. It smells slightly minty, but not too much.

Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Glisten is a totally saturated gorgeous peach color with gold glittery bits. I am in love with this blush and hope they make it full size one day. You do definitely see the gold glitter on your cheeks but it doesn’t look like huge chunks and doesn’t feel gritty or strange at all.

Smooth Operator

Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum comes in a tube and is a light golden shimmery lotion. You don’t get a huge amount of glow with this, which is nice. You don’t need a lot for a subtle warm glow.

The Bright Side Double-Ended Eye Brightener is a pencil that had two powders in each side. One is for “Day” and it’s a shimmery champagne color and the other is for “Night” and it’s a shimmery pink. I did like the color of the Day side, I felt it was a really nice golden color, but Night was kind of boring.

Overall:

I really like this collection and since I don’t have a lot of items from Tarte, I think it was a great place to start off. Every item here felt great and had good payoff. My favorite things here are Champagne, Glisten and Sweet. I would definitely buy all of these individually in a larger size if they had them!

Availability: Exclusive to Sephora and limited edition

Pricing: $42.00 (a $94 value)

What do you think about these colors? Any here that tempt you?
