Tarte Treasure Chest

Tarte Treasure Chest

The Tarte Treasure Chest was a great 2009 holiday combination set from the eco-friendly beauty company Tarte Cosmetics. It features 32 full-sized eyeshadows, 16 lipglosses, 4 powder blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter. The eyeshadows are broken down into 16 matte shades and 16 shimmery shades.

This kit was retailed for $52 at Sephora but is valued at $686, in other words, big bang for your buck!!

The Box:

The box is a padded bejeweled chest with a metallic silver ‘pleather’ feel. It opens up to 4 different levels, each housing the different products. The box maybe a tad bulky and tricky to work with. You have to be very careful or the drawers will surprise you by popping out.


Level 1 – Shimmery Eyeshadows:

This level contains the 16 shimmery shades and they open up into two wings to reveal the matte shades underneath. These are creamy and nicely pigmented with good color payoff. They can also be sheered out pretty easily. There is a nice selection of colors here – neutral wing and colorful wing.


Level 2 – Matte Eyeshadows:

The 2nd level houses the matte eyeshadows. They are smooth and creamy as well and blend perfectly – no chalky mattes here. These are more neutral shades all around though. I had hoped for some colorful mattes.


Level 3 – Lipglosses:

These are all pretty, sheer and fun glosses but are bothersome because they are not portable. They have decent wear, non-sticky, moisturizing but nothing too impressive here.


Level 4 – Blushes, Bronzer and Highlighter:

These are all shimmery shades and they are highly pigmented. They go on beautifully in one sweep and add a pretty glow to the skin. Be careful with these because you can be fooled into adding too much. There are 4 blushes - light pink, plummy pink, peach and dusty rose. The bronzer is also a great warm shade, not too orange or dirty looking at all. The highlighter is an icy
frosty pink that comes off with a nice
shimmer effect.

This is a great purchase and a great investment. This is great for travel since it contains most of what you would need. The package may need a little work but not difficult to work around. I am very happy with this kit and will get many uses out of it.
