  1. Just received mine in the mail! So excited! The one issue is that they didn’t include the blush I got, but customer service was fabulous. They picked up basically immediately when I called and said it was still in stock so they are already sending it out. They said if it wasn’t in stock they would have refunded me for the cost of it or something. But since I’m getting one of their blushes also in ipsy and they’re sending it out, I’m happy.

  2. Is anyone interested in selling the flamingo bag? That’s the only thing I have FOMO about 😩

  3. I personally am glad I jumped on the $63 deal. There’s plenty of Tarte products I wanted to try, but could just not convince myself I wanted to spend $36 on Foundation or the Radiance Drops …

    I got on the website that mid morning and already some items / shades were sold out. That convinced me I needed to hop on it and finish my order QUICK…

    I chose the

    * Tarte Flamingo Sequin Bag

    * Hydrating Shape Tape Foundation in Light Neutral (I have the Shape Tape Concealer which I really like, so I’ve always wanted to try their foundation…I’ve read it can be hit or miss but I’m willing to try it out. My skin is definitely drier in the Colorado winters)

    * Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops (I heard that a few drops on your skin under your foundation gives you that subtle lit-from-within look)

    * Amazonian Clay Blush in Shade Peaceful (a soft nude peach – I heard their blushes are THE Holy Grail!!)

    * Colorsplash Hydrating Lipstick in Popsicle (Pink) (some have likened this lipstick to a moisturizing lip balm)

    * Lights,Camera, Lashes Liquid Eyeliner (always wanted to try a Tarte liquid eyeliner)

    * Maneater Mascara (another HG product)

    I also had a coupon for my bday which gave me 20% off the below AND a

    * free deluxe Drink of H2O moisturizer

    *Mermaid Treasures Custom Magnetic Palette $13 (for all my Colorpop single shadows)

    * LE Tarteist Treats Kit with mini eyeshadow palette, lipstick and mascara $11.20

    * A few free sample packets

    All of the above for $87 bucks.

    Suffice to say, I’M happy

  4. My comments haven’t posted, at all, for weeks.

  5. I ordered one because I wanted to try some new things. I first made a bag early in the morning and everything I wanted was still in stock. But I wasn’t sure which foundation color I was since I use a different brand. So I had to wait to get to a store mid-day to try out foundations. I ended up with matte foundation instead of the hydrating that I wanted to try because hydrating didn’t have my color. I should have planned it better and picked out the color the day prior. I lost out on a couple options I wanted since I waited but also feel I ended up with a better gloss and shadow color and highlighter choice. So I will probably in the end be happier with my choices. Tarte is hit or miss for me. A few of their products I love like their highlighter palette, face setting powder, concealer, and one shadow shade. But I’m not a fan of their blush or most shadows that come in the palettes or LCL mascara. So hopefully I like enough of the products I ordered to try enough to justify the purchase.

  6. So glad I’ve awoken and not falling for this anymore.

    Easy pass…. they’ll still sell out though because so many people still think its a “deal” even though its older, discounted and slow/low selling stock they have tons of because it just doesn’t sell and is being closed out. Same as boxy and many other “perceived” deals.

    And to boot- they capitalize on the naivete and gullibility by raising the price and lessening the options/valuations each time. Money off the backs of those who dont get it.

    • Well that’s a pretty bad attitude. Other people really enjoy this kit. Why do you care? I, for one, use this kit to stock up on products I love and use every day. It IS a great deal for me.

    • This is really insulting to those of us who purchased. I don’t care if it’s older stock, or being discontinued. It’s all things I will use, and there’s nothing actually wrong with the product. They are deals, because it’s a discount on items many of us were looking to purchase anyway.

      But glad you’re so woke. More deals for the rest of us.

      • LOL. I agree. There were some best sellers on that list and everything I chose had more than four stars.

    • And your purpose for posting this is what exactly? To feel superior to the naiive suckers who “fell for” it? Please let us enjoy our purchase without your negativity.

  7. Created a bag because it’s such a good deal, then realized I literally don’t need a single thing. I still have a few foundations to get through and I’m up to my ears in blush, highlighter and lip pies. I’m trying to practice the art of not buying things I don’t need JUST because it’s a great deal. Great deal or not, I saved $63 plus tax, and left items for someone who actually needs it right now. I feel proud and my husband feels grateful lol

    • Um, that’s lippies, not lip pies lol

  8. Missed out this time 🙁

  9. I ordered just after 7AM EST and already got an email that my order has shipped!

    • Same! I’m excited about my selections.

  10. Ugh it is a good deal, but I just bought so much from Tarte already and I don’t need any of these things. Its an incredible deal. I had put everything in the basket, but didn’t push order because I don’t really need all this stuff. I think I will pass, although I really like this brand and it is an incredible deal. I hope others who still need this kind of makeup or even just want it, should go and get it. I just have so much right now, I don’t even know how I am going to even use all of it.

  11. I just went to order a set and all the good shades and products are out of stock! Hrmp!

  12. I am skipping this. I used to love Tarte, but for some reason it just doesn’t work for me like it used to. Right now I am all about Kristofer Buckle. His makeup does miracles for me. Next week who knows😂

  13. All the good stuff, including all the foundation shades that are anywhere close to my skin tone, are sold out. What is the point of a bag like this if they don’t stock a variety of foundation shades? And this opened at 4am, wtf. This is not Black Friday, I am not setting an alarm to wake up 3+ hours early for this on a random Wednesday. Thanks, Tarte, I’ll keep my money.

  14. So tempting, but I decided against once I made up a bag. The hydrating foundation is what I want the most, but they didn’t have the concealer option I wanted in a shade I could wear. I love Lights, Camera, Lashes but don’t need another mascara since I just got Lifted in the Birthday bag (which worked great for me) and have a Lights, Camera, Lashes I am still working through. The hydrating lipstick didn’t come in a shade I would wear, so I would have needed to get another liquid lip – which are nice, but I already have a bunch and just want a regular lipstick. The eyeshadows are pretty but I don’t particularly ‘need’ any of them. I’d love to get another full size Tarte blush – but I do have one full size and several deluxe tarte blushes already, plus a zillion from sub boxes. And so forth.

    If they had a few more options (like sub out the mascara for a skin care item or get a discount for a category you don’t want) or shade options I might have bit!

    • I did the same thing. Built the bag, went to check out then went through each item and turned out that I really want and needed foundation, which I can buy separately for $31. Deleted the bag from card and went with my day feeling good.

    • I also built a bag but was disappointed that they didn’t have any of my shade of concealer, so decided not to proceed. A shame!

  15. Geez, was late to this one apparently. Most of what I wanted was sold out. Any chance they will restock?

    • I don’t think so, however, they may add items that weren’t there before so you may want to check back and be sure to scroll through all the arrows. Good luck!

  16. To me is over priced I wish they had an affordable one

  17. That cute flamingo bag was calling out to me! I am trying the hydrating foundation, the setting powder, an eyeshadow, the crayon lip, statement mascara, blush. There was a face brush for $10 offer when I checked out. I almost wish I could get a second bag with my second choice picks.

  18. I bought this last time and loved it. I really love the Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation so I restocked it. I also have the Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation and love that as well. They both look great. I get tons of complements on the Airbrush foundation every time I wear it. I have a drawer full of Tarte products including Shape Tape so that I don’t run out. This is a great deal.

  19. I went through first thing this morning and made my bag and then backed out at the end because I don’t “need” anything (I’ve gotten bags the past two times they offered). Now I just went through again and purchased it because I decided it’s still a good deal and I haven’t found my holy grail foundation yet and this would be a good opportunity to try the clay stick one. The rest of it is stuff that I already know I like or items I will definitely use. The six items total up to a $133 value even including the sale prices on some and not counting the bag. Of course since I delayed my top pick of shades on the foundation and concealer were already sold out but I vary between light and medium anyways and seem to make either work as long as they have pink undertones so hopefully it will be a close enough match to truly try out and give it a go. At least I tried to be good and save money for a little bit. LOL.

  20. I told myself I wouldn’t…but I apparently lied lol.

  21. Why didn’t my comments post?

    • Welcome! Happens to me almost every time I comment. I made a comment on here around 8:30 and it still has not posted. And when it does it will go in order by when I originally posted it. So towards the bottom and many people don’t scroll through all the comments they look at the top few. So yeah, welcome to this world.

      • Hi. 🙂 It happens to me often, and I’ve noticed to you and others as well because thankfully you guys said something. I decided to say so as well because I think whatever filter MSA is using needs more tweaking or to be gotten rid of. These comment threads are a little community of their own and it sucks not to have your comments post for whatever reason but especially when there is no legitimate reason for them to be flagged in the first place.

      • I tried replying to you earlier, it has yet to post. smh 🙂

      • I think if you use certain keywords in your comments, it has to be approved by a mod. If they don’t like what you said, they won’t approve it and it will never show up.

        • I posted a very positive comment about Tarte and some of the products in this offer that probably could have promoted sales and I still don’t see my comment. I wonder why? This was hours ago.

          • Mine was in no way negative. I posted what I had in my cart and the struggle not to buy (I caved anyways). I am not sure if it’s our IP address, Name, and/or email address, but I am pretty sure some of us are being flagged. I confronted MSA about a a couple times via email and they said they weren’t. Not a big deal. I created another account and they seem to go through ok so far. It just stinks when you put a lot of time and thought into what you are typing and it gets banned for no reason.

        • I’ve had that happen as well — if your comment gets filtered by the algorithm and they don’t like it, you are right, it won’t ever post. It upset me one time because I had spent some time formulating my comment. I went and read through the terms and I don’t think I violated them but it was maybe an unpopular opinion in a somewhat heated thread. I emailed MSA about it and I never received a reply.

          This is a privately owned website and it is their prerogative to do as they see fit but likewise, I don’t have to use the affiliate links to purchase. I get most of these offers straight to my inbox from the companies. This issue does affect my willingness to use the affiliate links, sometimes I do and sometimes I pass. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

          I understand that MSA would want the site to have broad appeal but it just isn’t the case that only extreme, or spam, or nsfw comments get filtered, ordinary ones do too and it is frustrating because you don’t get to participate in the community.

        • We’re the next day and my previous comments and replies still haven’t posted.

      • I wish the delayed posts would post at the top. I still scroll through “old” comments but more to see if there’s a new reply to the old comment, so I tend to skip what appear to me to be the older numbered comments. I’ve caught a few that posted late, but I know I tend to miss out on a lot of comments that post at a later time thinking I’ve already read them since I just glance at, but not really read, all of the older numbered comments.

        • Agree!

        • Same

    • Some weeks mine do then I will go through a week where none of my comments post. Who knows how it works because I sure don’t .

  22. No brush, shape take concealer or even their park ave bronzer as an option?? Easy pass this year. My money is safe for now

  23. Man I’m a little bummed… I ordered on my phone, and the website didn’t display the full options to me, no visible way to scroll to see more. So I picked things I would not have picked if I knew there were more options. I still like the things I picked, but wish I had known…

  24. Wishful thinking but after my order, it asked why I ordered and I gave feedback that it’s a great deal but I’d like to see them add some travel/full sized skincare options next year. Basically the travel bottle of Maracuja oil or one of the Rainforest of the Sea serums/moisturizers/cleansers would be a guaranteed sale for me. Granted I know they really like pushing items that aren’t selling to their expectations beyond the foundation, so it probably won’t happen. Maybe if more people gave that type of feedback…

  25. I skipped this time. I mean, I would need a foundation in a three-four months when I use up the ones I currently have, but I don’t want to pay extra $20 for the rest of the things I don’t need or already have. If they added the shape tape concealer as another choice then I’d be in, but as of now- no fomo.

    • I got all the way to the checkout and then skipped. It’s not that it isn’t a good deal…but I’m so spoiled by subscription boxes. I found myself going, “OK, but I *need* foundation/setting powder/concealer, but the rest is just going to go in the pile of things I haven’t used yet.” Plus the concealer and setting powder were in the same category. If I could have skipped highlighter or mascara and gotten both of the things I really need, I might have pulled the trigger. I just have so many highlighters/eyeshadows/eyeliners/mascaras that I only want to buy things if I know it probably won’t be in a box in a month or two.

  26. Sucker for a good deal, I picked a kit up. Flamingo bag, ST Hydrating foundation, Radiance Drops, Blush & Glow compact in Peach, Color Splash lipstick in the 2nd shade option (midtone mauvey berry), round Tarteist metallic eyeshadow in a deep plum, LCL mascara. I love the ST Hydrating foundation and my close friend told me that the Light Neutral shade I picked up last time is the best looking foundation I’ve worn (finish & color match). The only time of year it doesn’t work for me is monsoon season in Arizona when I get oily and no foundation is immune to separating or not fully setting.

  27. I was really pleased with the options this time, with the exception that they didn’t have my foundation color. So I opted for the matte and we will see how I like it. It is just with winter, I would prefer not to use matte. It would have been nice for a brush, like others have stated, as well as a plain purple bag.

  28. I wasn’t going to get one, but I have been having just the most annoying couple days and I do need foundation for the winter, and paaarty is my favorite blush shade, so I said, eff it, I’m getting one.

    • LOL. Shopping is good therapy until the credit card statement comes then it’s full circle again.

      • Haha you’re exactly right!

  29. This actually worked out very well for me. Two products I am almost out of were included, so I’m viewing the others as freebies. I would have spent the same for the 2 that I did for the full kit. Much better than the birthday surprise kit that I have yet to use anything from.

  30. I was on the fence but ended up getting a kit because I really wanted to try the radiance drops and that was already half the price of the kit. I picked up the fairytale (mint) lip paint for funsies (can’t wait to see what my husband thinks, lol) and the Amazonian clay mascara to try, it will be great if it does what it says. I opened up a second window to better have a more natural finish but caved and just went with the hydrating shape tape foundation because my skin is dry — I will just sheer it out with a little oil or the radiance drops. They still had a lot of color selections when I went through. Good luck everyone.

  31. I have my bag built. Black bag, Amazonian clay loose powder, Translucent powder, Amazonian clay blush in nude pink, lip gloss in cool mauve, Waterproof shadow liner in white (I plan to use this as an eye-shadow primer), and limited-edition maneater voluptuous mascara. I have all that in my cart and upon looking at it I realize I don’t need any of it. I need a new eye-shadow primer but literally that’s all. But I wants its. ugh!

  32. I skipped this time as well. I still have most of the products left over from last time. My guess is they cant give that foundation away so it’s probably going to be the one included every time for awhile.

    • I think I am the only person in the world who LOVES the ST hydrating foundation. It matches my skin color exactly, so I am hoarding it for when they inevitably discontinue it. 🙂

      • Haha. I got the old version hydrating (gel?) foundation in one of these build your own bags a few years ago on a whim eventhough I have oily skin and I actually really liked it! Especially in the winter months. Then they changed it to this kind and I’ve tried the matte version (it’s OK but not my holy grail) but haven’t tried this hydrating one.

        • Oooh yes I love that hydrating gel foundation that came in a jar. Still have it from over a year ago. I’m disappointed in Tarte and their CS and just the direction the brand has gone in the past few years and I just don’t see myself buying their stuff anymore. I’ve found better foundations that work for me. But I still love that damn hybrid gel foundation. I will be sad when I finish it.

  33. I’m so proud of myself for saying no even though I love tarte products. I am saving my money for BF deals.

  34. Has anyone ordered 2 of these kits before? From two different email accounts since it’s one custom kit per customer? I ask because I have two accounts but they are both in my name and I want to order a kit for my mom for Christmas without her knowing. I don’t want my first order to get cancelled though. My emails and billing addresses are different. Same name on both accounts though =(

  35. Disappointed that it doesn’t include a brush.

    • Blush is one of the options.

      • TOTALLY misread that. Sorry, ignore my first comment.

    • Me too. I would’ve probably bought if they did even though Tarte is not a brand I particularly like.

    • They were offering a $10 dual-ended highlighting brush at checkout. I passed but it seemed nice.

    • Me too. I was hoping to get the Kabuki brush since I’m always missing out on it.

      • I have the giant swirl brush up for swap, if that’s the one you mean. New in box. 🙂
