Tarte Amazonian Clay Glowlight Correcting & Brightening Duo

So if you read the blog you more than likely picked up on the fact that I LOVE Tarte cosmetics. Overall just good quality make up that works and is good for you. So when I saw these on QVC I was ready for them. I bought them on a pre-order basis and they arrived during the week I was on vacation. So when I got home they were waiting for me.

These wands are used under your foundation after you put your primer on. There's two wands, one that is used to correct any darkness or to cover up any spots you don't want to bring attention to (ex. wrinkles) . While the other wand adds highlight and luminosity to your face.  I've heard of these type of products being referred to as a facelift in a wand. I've seen similar wands for sale by other companies and this was my first experience with them.

I hate to say this but for me these did not work. No big dramatic difference between using it and not using it. I don't see any benefit in keeping them. Perhaps I'm too young and I don't need a product like this. I already have other products that can do the same things so it's overkill for me to have extra products that do the same thing. The Correcting wand to me is nothing more than a concealer and it does not compare to Tarte's Maracuja creaseless concealer. Plus these wands aren't cheap, when I got them I paid $33.78 with shipping. Last I checked they now are going for $40.22 with shipping!  I'm glad I got these on QVC because they have an amazing return policy.  I love Tarte but this product was not a winner for me. Do any of you use wand duos like these? If so do they work for you?

In case you are interested in these here is the link for them on QVC. I'm not sure if they are available in stories . If you are someone who uses something like these pens you might like these, the makeup quality is there but for me the extra steps to use them doesn't give me any benefits at this stage in my life.

  1. I too am a huge TARTE fan. I am really liking a lot of the new things in the Amazonian Clay line - I hope that Maureen makes the blush Glisten that was in her first Amazonian Clay TSV grouping a regular line blush. I did see that there was a travel size version of it released in a Sephora collection of Tarte things. But like with other Tarte lines - not everything has been a hit for me either. I find if I have more than 2 items to return to QVC, I pay my own return shipping vs using their return label. I can bulk like items that return to the same addy together and save $ on return shipping so when I get a credit, it's for the entire amount I paid less my own return ship. I noticed they started to put a peal off label for our own paid ship returns on the invoice now and not just have the one for the postage paid one that they will take a hunk of $ out of the return credit price per item even if you put then all in the same box. I am nuts for the new Tarte Maracuja oil concealer too..but then I liked 2 previous concealers tons as well to. I have I think 3 of the one that came in the pot with or without the setting powder left in my back up stash.

  2. sounds like you've got the returning down to a science! I've only returned one other item to QVC and I paid for shipping and they still charged me as if i used their return label. So you gotta keep an eye on them to make sure they get it right. This duo thing i returned yesterday and it only cost me a buck to ship back, i think they'd charge like 7-8. Tarte will be on QVC this saturday so i'm sure i'll see something to pick up to replace what i had to ship back. The other item i returned was the tarte hd finishing powder, that was a fail for me  so back it went.
