Tarte 8th World Wonder Best of the Amazon Review

Okay so I wrote out this very very long review on this kit and when I went to publish the post it disappeared and now I have to rewrite it and you know when that happens it's never as good as what you originally wrote so bear with me as I try to sum up what I wrote before.

I hate to post this up since it's not something you can get anymore but because this has become something I use on almost a daily bases, I felt that I had to share it with you guys. I bought this from QVC back in March when it was a Today's Special Value. This was my first purchase ever from the Home Shopping world and it became easily one of the best make up purchases i've ever made in my life!! I follow Tarte on Twitter and one of their tweets was that Maureen (founder) was gonna be on QVC so i figured i'd tune in and check it out. The funny part is I called my mom about this kit and she was watching it too. We both picked up a kit. These were selling like hot cakes because they ended up backordered for us and it took like a month before we got them. The wait was well worth it!!

The main reason I was sucked into the kit was the Foundation. I have Oily skin and after a few hours i tend to get really shiny on my forehead and nose. Because the Foundation has Amazonian clay in it it's supposed to help absorb the oil. I admit I was a bit skeptical, but I still had to try it and i figured if it is a dud then there were plenty of goodies in the kit to make up for it. Well the Foundation turned out to be AMAZING!!! I end up using a lot less foundation than I used to, I get full coverage and it's very light feeling. I've never used a brush before to apply foundation so I was a bit iffy on that too but it works great. It give you that airbrushed look and feel. I've even worn this out and sweated like a fool in it and once I got back inside I looked fresh as a daisy! Seriously!! It is also supposed to be good for all skin types not just Oily.  I would highly recommend you try this foundation if you get a chance. Right now I believe it is all sold out but they are frantically making more of it. It is exclusive to QVC till the end of July. It's SOLD OUT!! you know what that means?? It's Amazingly Perfect! 

Okay my other Favorite standout in the set is the Mascara. I've never used a Mascara where I could put on a 2nd and even 3rd coat without that it's starting to clump and its not really separating the lashes feeling. Because of this you can increase the sizes of your lashes some crazy 400%. Besides the performance of the mascara which I believe is like a multiple award winner for Tarte, I liked how when I take the mascara off it's not pulling out any lashes with it. I stopped using other Mascaras I thought I liked because this one out performs them.

This kit was my first time using Tarte Cosmetics, I've been wanting to try it before but I never got around to it and I feel like kicking myself for it because this make up is such a high quality product that is all natural and actually good for you. After using this kit I went back to QVC and changed my order to Auto Delivery and then I bought a few other Tarte items (yes this means i'll have more reviews). Before starting the blog I honestly did not wear that much makeup but now I own a lot of make up and I'm wearing a lot more of it and it makes me feel good knowing how good the Tarte line is for my skin. 

So one of my main reasons for posting this is to let you guys know that QVC will be having another Tarte Special Value in July and you can preorder it now. Its not the same as this kit but it is still a crazy good value. Here's the link Tarte Glow your way to Gorgeous 8 pc Collection . Yes I have already preordered this myself!! One last thing I wanted to say, I bought these items with my own money and no no one is paying me for this review I just really want you guys to be aware of Tarte's Amazonian Clay Products since They have been a game changer for me and my make up routine. 
Here's what came in the set: Foundation brush, Amazonian Clay foundation, Light Camera Lashes Mascara, Amazonian Clay Eyeliner in Golden Plum, Amazonian Clay Blush in Glisten, Pure Optic Lip Gloss in Golden Pink and Amazonian clay 4 eyeshadow compact. There was also a purple make up bag/clutch (not pictured)

Glisten blush ( a peachy-pink shimmer blush) I've also used this as eye shadow it's soooo pretty!
The Eye Shadows are : Dark Brown, Light sand, Shimmering Bronze and Shimmering Plum

From Left to Right: Gold Plum eye liner, Dark Brown, Light Sand, Shimmering Bronze, Shimmering Plum, Glisten, and Golden Pink Lipgloss
With Flash
I think I might have layered the gloss over some other lipstick here because the gloss is a really sheer color. It's has a nice peppermint smell and nice light reflecting speckles in it, I use it a lot but I tend to layer it over something with more color.

I'm not kidding when I say I use this make up A LOT , here's me from another day and as before I have some other lip gloss on. This is my go to make up for a quick and easy everyday natural look!

Thanks for reading !


  1. Ooooh it's so pretty! I don't have a lot of Tarte stuff except a few shadows but I like it!

  2. I LOVE this first kit in the AD...that blush is my all time fav - I am fair with blond hair - so pink/peach is perfect for me. There was not a dog in that first delivery. I went to eBay and bought back up pieces to a few of them I loved it so much! The 2nd in the delivery - not as exciting - only because the blush is not a great shade on me. You can look up on Google by entering Tarte 8th Wonder of the World and you will see what is in your 3rd collection that will come this fall. It's a good picture.

  3. i know i love this kit too! i like having the 2nd kit just because i like having the extra color choices. That green eyeliner is soo pretty! The Tarte Foundation is by far the best stuff i've ever used!! I can't wait to get my 3rd delivery now!
