Did anyone else get their box and items were missing? I got mine today and two items were missing. I emailed customer service. I haven’t ordered from Tarte before- is there any hope that they will replace the missing items? Or should I just kiss them goodbye?

Tracy

I still haven’t received mine. Anyone else in the same boat?

LP

Me! And when I look at my shipping info, it says FedEx still hasn’t received the package from Tarte.

kc

Ok, so contacted CS again and got the same response initially. But told them it did not make sense it would take this long for me to receive it. So they issued a replacement and had to do a partial refund as my bag I had chosen was out of stock. Did you receive your bag yet?

Kc

Same here! Called CS and they claimed fedex has received the package and is on its way.

Marion

Bummer! Mine arrived today with the full-coverage 15 SPF Amazonian Clay foundation in Ivory instead of the 20 SPF Amazonian Clay BB cream. The BB cream was sold out by the end of the sale, so I don’t think I’ll be able to get a replacement. I sent them an email & we’ll find out what they say!

Marion

I was given a credit of “around $9.”

I broke down the value of the box, using non-sale pricing for the items I bought & assigning a $15 value to the bag. The total value was $191 dollars, making the $36 foundation that I was supposed to get 18% of the value of the total amount. So in my opinion, a reasonable refund would be $11.80.

I don’t know if I even want to pursue it, but I’m really sick of Ipsy doing the same thing. I swear, these beauty companies are BEGGING for a class action suit. If you sell me a bundle of 7 items for $63, it is NOT okay to send me 6 items and a refund of an arbitrary amount based on how many items were in the bundle. I did not agree to pay $54 for 6 items.

Jane

Mine arrived today! I feel like this is way faster than last time. Good to remember for next time (probably June-ish) that they really got the shipping 👍

Tiffany

It’s closed now, but FYI to future purchasers, mine is going to be delivered today!

Sherri

I got an email this morning (11/7) saying that they’ve extended the deal into today.

I already got two yesterday so I’m just gonna leave that alone, lol, but in case anyone regrets not pulling the trigger yesterday, you can still get one.

Krystal

I’m probably the only person sitting here upset about getting a box at the beginning of the day and now seeing some of the things they added since then, feeling bummed I didn’t get some of those options. So spoiled.

marilyn

But the Mermaid H2O serum is now gone, so there’s that.

Tiffany Pree

I went ahead & bought this & added more items to the cart. Been wanting to get one of these for some time. Decided why not? I’ll wrap the box up when it comes & save it for Christmas! I don’t need more make up, but also not sure what to get for Christmas. So figured the time was right to finally participate.

Miriam

It only took me 30 minutes to make my choices. I was so proud for not taking hours to do it. I was very happy with my selections. I have spent the entire rest of the day wishing I could change some of my choices. 😣

Makenzie

Created a bag several times today but backed out each time. I’m on product overload to the max lol. Really didnt need more makeup. It was hard to resist though since this is such a good deal. I’m sure my husband is proud of me lol.

Carol

This was my first time ordering and since I get up at 5:45 anyway, I decided to check it out. When I started to build my own bag, I realized how much I *really* wanted it so I proceeded to checkout. I was disappointed that I didnt get a confirmation email + when I ordered it told me it would be a longer ship time. BUT! I just got a shipping confirmation! I ordered roughly 12 hours ago and am super impressed! I really hope it means I will get it sooner than I originally thought. Really excited to try everything out, but am most psyched for the H20 serum.

Melissa

I’m holding off and refreshing because I’m hoping they’ll add the water foundation (which I REALLY wanna try) or, my second choice, the babassu foundation. What do y’all think my chances are??

I know my dry, sensitive skin doesn’t like the shape tape (hydrating nor matte), and the BB only goes up to Light which is way too dark for me. The amazonian clay actually works okay with me but is on the drying side if I’m not careful about regularly misting, etc. Fingers crossed so hard. Getting to try the water/babassu foundations at a discount would be a dream <3

SquirrelyGirl

The water foundation isn’t super great if you sweat. It doesn’t last all day for me, but I live in California (hot) and am a dog walker so I sweat more than an average person. I got the water foundation in last year’s bag because of the SPF (I try to really layer on the SPF) and was kind of disappointed in it.

Marion

I’m not positive, but it looks to be like the only category they’ve added new items to is the body/brushes category.

Rebecca

I bought one this morning (almost set an alarm, but was pretty sure I’d end up getting up right at 7 to feed my cat anyway), and I’ve been thinking about going back for bag number two ever since, because I’m bad at making decisions.

Tiffany

Me too!

Janet J

Glad I picked mine up around noon! I kept holding off, and then I saw one of the things I wanted sell out!! now it’s slim pickings!

I got:

Clay Foundation Stick
Amazonian Clay tinted setting powder
Jade Metallic Shadow
Rainforest of the Sea Lipstick in Colada-I wear it in sunkissed all the time, can’t wait to try this color!!! Best lipstick ever!
Gifted mascara-Got a sample once and liked it!
Pink Powder Brush
Sequin Bag with black tassels!

Everything is new to me except the mascara! Can’t wait to try them all! I’m hoping I have the patience to wait and put it all under the tree haha!

Janet E Jones

* I got the blush sample. . .
and the thing I missed out on was the brow mousse. . . . maybe in the spring sale lol

Sherri

Um yeah, so I did a thing… I got two of these, one early this morning and one just now. Had been wanting to try out a few different products and figured this was the best way to do that because I’d be getting a bunch of “extra” products beyond what I wanted to try. Tried to stick with just the one but got pulled back in. Apparently I’m weak.

Mele

Same here. I bought 3 Kits. I just can’t resist a good sale. But some of the items I got will be stocking stuffers so, technically, I’m just getting an early start on Christmas shopping. Lol

Tracy

I did this last year and it was a good experience so I went for it again. I was too late for the Hyaluronic Acid serum, which is too bad because I loved that stuff last year. I’m trying the toner/cleanser product now and hoping it’s just as good.

I picked some stuff I wouldn’t normally buy individually just for the fun of it — that’s why I like this sale. You can try new stuff and you’ll probably like enough of it to make it worth it. Maybe you’ll find something amazing. All good. Tarte is a great brand for me, so I know I’ll enjoy most of the items.

Tiffany

I ordered mine the second it went live this morning, I was so excited! I’m getting:

Shape tape matte foundation 16n (I already use the hydrating version and wanted to try the matte)

Smooth operator Amazonian clay finishing powder

Man eater eyeshadow palette vol 2

Opening act lash primer

Color Splash Lipstick in Escape(rose)

Knockout Tingling Treatment

Black and Gold fabric bag

So excited for this, such an amazing deal! Can’t wait for it to ship

Christa H.

I think this may be my last time getting this. I have just about every Tarte product they have listed to select from 😳🙃

Jenny

Thank you for the notice! Couldn’t pass up this deal, impressed there were so many options! I plan to separate items and gift to my daughter and sister for holiday.

Meow

Ugh. Caved, always do. Really wanted to try the BB cream, eyebrow gel, and Knockout. Everything else is just bonus I guess. Really liked their powder foundation in my last kit and use it almost daily but am looking for something for when I have less time to put on makeup to stash in my “emergency putting on my makeup on my way to work” bag.

Mel

Wasn’t going to, but it’s such a good deal. The only other time I ordered this kit, it was a nightmare. Didn’t get what I ordered, and only received three items. Hope this time it goes smoothly.

* Amazonian clay full coverage foundation SPF15 in 13N ivory
Never tried this before, but it looks like it has a lot of good reviews. Love SPF, too.
* Tarteist PRO glow to go highlight contour palette
Going to my daughter for X-mas.
* Sex Kitten Liquid Liner
Really like this liner
* Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara
Tried to get this last time, and they didn’t send it
* Color Splash Lipstick in Escape (Rose)
* Knockout Tingling Treatment
Seems to get good reviews, so I’m pretty jazzed about trying this.
* Glitter Half Moon Bag
Likely going to my daughter for X-mas

Tracy

Wow, you only got 3 items from your order last year? Did they refund you or offer to send the missing items when back in stock? This is my 1st time getting this box, so this worries me…

MissPippa

I was so excited that I forgot to add samples. Oh well, I sure don’t need any more samples.

Tracy

Me too.

Deanne

Lol 😅 it’s so funny how as grown women we can’t get enough of tiny shiny things!

Jennifer

I didn’t even think to look for samples. 🙁 I just wanted to make sure my choices didn’t sell out.

Tiffany

Me too 😕

Kathleen

I kicked myself after not getting a kit the last time around, so I made sure to grab one this time! I’ve been wanting to try Tarte out for awhile and the price along with the variety of products available made this a win-win for me.

I think I’m most excited to try out the H20 serum.

Amanda

Me too! 😁

Annie S.

Tarte doesn’t agree with me but I’m happy for those who got what they wanted.

Alexa

TEMPTED. Lights camera splashes is my fave mascara and they’ve finally included the BB tinted moisturizer for the first time ever which is the only foundation-y product I ever use. But I don’t NEED any of it right now and I’m trying not to restock things until I’m out.

Jennifer

My favorite mascara, too, that and the regular lights, camera, lashes – some of the only ones that don’t give me raccoon eyes. I made a kit just for fun and to see all of the options – if I needed any of it right now, it would be a great deal since I love most tarte products. (The matte cream foundation doesn’t work for me, but maybe the hydrating one would?) But I’m pretty much stocked right now.

I love all the options, though! It’s a way better selection than last time I got a pick a set type thing from tarte a couple years ago.
