The Tarte Holiday 2013 Collection

Tarte Holiday 2013 Collection

The only tarts I know are the kind that girls love to eat and then chid themselves after having done so. Apple, lemon meringue, strawberry, custard. The list goes on but now there’s a new tart in town – Tarte Cosmetics! Perhaps the only thing this newbie has in common with the rest is that it’s cruelty-free. That’s assuming the act of harvesting fruits and preheating ovens doesn’t result in the maiming of our furry friends.


Since we’re on the topic of tarts, I wonder what kind people usually make during Christmas. Any tart would be fine by me, actually, though my favourite would be something lemony. Have that together with a piping hot cup of tea, snuggled in the couch with a loved one, while snowflakes fall gently down on the window pane and bells jingle softly in the distance.


In a parallel universe, I would, still, be having a lemony tarty, but this time, I’ve also got a table-full of Tarte Cometics’ makeup to play with. Now how about their Holiday 2013 Collection?

Did someone say limited edition? I love the sound of that. The set includes 6 of the top selling products from Tarte:


  1. Skinny SmoulderEYES Waterproof Liner
  2. Beauty & the Box Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Quad
  3. LipSurgence Lip Shine in Smitten
  4. MultiplEYE Lash Enhancing Primer
  5. Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
  6. Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder


There are also quite a few products from Tarte that I’m pretty excited to try myself. First up is the Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush, S$45. It comes in 12 pretty shades and I do like the engraving on top.

Can’t get enough of this one, the Rare Gem Limited Edition Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler, S$34.


Just previewing these pretty Tarte products is putting me in the mood for Christmas! Since this is the first time Tarte is setting foot in Singapore, I’d just like to mention a couple more of their products, namely the BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (an oil-free, 12-hour primer), S$54, and the Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss (a gloss with moisture and sheer colour).
