☆Tarte 5-piece LipSurgence Collector's Set Swatches

Hey Guys!

Tarte has come out with another Christmas value set that comes with 5 lip colors. They are all gorgeous colors and it is sets like these which make me wish we had a Sephora where I live. I would totally stock up on different sets, split them up and give to friend's as Christmas gifts!

The packaging is adorably girly and on the back of the box it has a gift tag where you can write the name of the lucky recipient of this awesome gift. It also says which colors come with this set on the back of the box.

This set includes:
2 full size LipSurgence lip tints in Enchanted (sheer rose) and Elite (sheer melon)
2 full size LipSurgence lip lusters in Escape (shimmering pink) and Sweet (shimmering peachy pink)
1 fill size LipSurgence matte lip tint in Exposed (the perfect nude)

L-R: Escape, Enchanted, Exposed, Sweet, Elite
All the Lipsurgence's seem natural and wearable but there isn't as much variety of colors in the swatches as it seems when you see them in the packaging. They are similar shades, but I love pinks all the same. Escape and Sweet have some sparkles and they all have that nice minty smell. I've only worn Enchanted so far and it makes me want to wear some white eyeshadow, cat eyeliner and sing Taylor Swift songs all day :) ♪ I was enchanted to meet you Tarte LipSurgencessssss ♪ Side note: I think Enchanted is one of my all time favorite Taylor Swift songs.. It's so b-e-autiiiiful!

L-R: Escape, Enchanted, Exposed, Sweet, Elite
One of my favorite things about Tarte is they are aim to provide a healthy makeup alternative with ingredients that are good for you. Tarte LipSurgences are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and synthetic fragrance which are things we should be all watching for in our beauty products! Another little plus is the LipSurgences do not require a sharpener which can get messy and annoying.

This gift set is sold at Sephora and is $34 US ($120 Retail Value) and $44 Cdn ($156 Retail Value) which is a super deal since one LipSurgence is regular $31 Cdn.

Do you think you will be picking up this set or passing? Is there any Sephora Christmas gift sets you've been eyeing this year?

  1. It's not a bad deal, but they're not as pigmented on the lips & they look very similar D:

    1. Oh no! That sucks to hear about the pigmentation! and you're right.. They are really close to each other :( I will keep you guys updated on how they work out for me. I'm optimistic because I'm so dang pale lol! I guess that's what I get for living in a place people nicknamed "Fog City" Haha!! :)
