Tarte Discover the Amazon 3-Piece Kit

I have heard lots of good things about the "Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation" but I didn't want to commit to the full size bottle, so I decided to get this kit. Tarte is one of my favourite makeup lines in the higher department and their products have never disappointed me. So I had high hopes for this kit

First of all, I love the box. It is so pretty and fun and bright. Tarte always has cute and fun packaging with their kits and in general.

Also, i love how it has the facts and information on the back of the box. It lists the products that are in in the kit. It also explains the drug facts and information about the foundation.

Another thing I love about this kit. It comes with a small-medium sized makeup bag, with the same design as the box! I am just in love. It is such a lovely design and the colours are so fun. The inside of the bag has a light to medium purple colour which is so appropriate, neat and absolutely beautiful.

There are 3 products that come in the makeup bag, and this kit is the perfect size for travelling. 

It comes with 0.8 oz Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation, 0.24 oz Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara in Black (full size), and 0.6 Pure Maracuja Oil Roller-ball.

This oil is very hydrating on the skin for face and neck area. It has the Essential Fatty Acids as well as Vitamin C which is brightening and tones the skin. Also a really great thing about this particular packaging is that it has the roller-ball which is cold so it is very soothing on the skin when it is being applied.

This is the first mascara I have ever tried from Tart.  

The wand has bristles that are packed densely. As long as I clean the brush applicator and run it inside the opening, it doesn't clump on my lashes. If I don't clean the brush and leave the product on the wand, it really clumps up my lashes. But so far I actually like the mascara. It just needs some work before I apply it to my lashes. ha ha

Lastly is the foundation. The thing I was most excited for!

I got the the foundation in the shade medium. Matches me well. It is, like it says, full coverage! and a little bit of this stuff goes a very long way. 

This kit is limited edition and is sold on-line only as far as I know and saw in the Sephora website.

This kit comes in 5 different foundation shades. (Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, Deep)

You can also purchase the products in this kit individually and of course they are full size.

Overall, I love this kit. It is so perfect for travelling since it's so small and compact but you still are getting pretty good amount of product. I think the price is reasonable, since the mascara is full sized and there is also a makeup bag included to put all the stuff in. I can't think of anything to complain about.

What are your thoughts on this kit?
Love, Dina


  1. I love tartes foundation i just got some myself it works so well and even though its full coverage it doesn't feel heavy!

    1. Yes, I absolutely agree with you. It so light weight that I sometimes forget I am actually wearing foundation on my face!!

  2. Thanks for sharing this review. I haven't purchased this kit in particular, but I have purchased other kits and some individual stuff from Tarte and I LOVE them all. I have these 3 products and am very happy with them. I've had the foundation for a good 2 years now. I've switched my foundation 2 or 3 times just to test other stuff, but I keep going back to this miracle!

    1. Tarte NEVER disappoints me. Also the great thing is that it's all natural so that makes me want to love it even more.
