Tarte launched a collection inspired by the legendary unicorn. Unicorns are popping up everything in everything from food to beauty and even now sex toys #mortified. I’m not sure where the obsession with this mystical horned beasts/creatures began but I can tell you where mine did. I got gifted a pair of unicorn slippers from my grandmother as a holiday gift.
As a lover of Tarte I was on at the time of the collections launched and originally only purchased the brushes and the highlighter. Lucky for me, Tarte recently had a sale and I got as able to snag the the Make Believe In Yourself palette and a few other Tarte goodies. So they are included in this post as well.
Let’s talk about these brushes, where do I even begin?! They are absolutely stunning. I love how they are totally different colors for different uses. The handles are gold and look just like unicorn horns. They clean extremely easily, which is important to me because I need to clean my brushes often(this post explains why). My most used brush is probably the powder brush since I use it to set my face. I also adore the contour brush; it honestly has made my morning so much easier.
As you know, I’m obsessed with highlighters. I love to shine bright like a diamond. The Spellbound Glow Rainbow Highlighter is rainbow but when swatched together turns out sort of silvery. I was surprised because when this is applied it creates a more natural highlight. I do like the color and I found it flattering but nothing innovative. The weird thing about mine was that the pan came lose, so as I was swirling my brush around the highlighter moved and got stuck in another position. It’s not a reason not to buy it.
As soon as I saw this palette was all shimmer shadows and I was sold. If you’re a matte kind of girl, this palette is not for you. It is a cheek and eye palette, so everything in it has at least 3 uses: eyeshadow, highlight and eye liner. They have a nice range of colors including some neutral as well as some blues and greens. The palette is smaller then I expected it to be but the pans are nicely sized. The colors are very pigmented as per usual if you are looking to really utilize the colors, foiling is the way to go. This will give you a full on unicorn glow.
It’s not secret I love a bold lash, which is why my favorite mascara is Tarte’s Lash Paint over my L’Oréal Lash Primer. This mascara creates bold and dramatic lashes fit for a unicorn tbh. This item was a repurchase for me.
Last but not least is a new lip product, liquid lipsticks are one of my favorite products to purchase. I’ve tried their lip paint and have been satisfied with them. Quite a while ago Tarte took some influencers to Bora Bora and launched a whole slew of products including new lip paints. There was a shade called “Salty” that I saw Katy Aka LustreLux had fallen in love with it. I made a note that one day I would pick it up.
