I received my order today. Love it! I tried it last time and enjoyed it so much I had to do it again.

Lori

Omg, I’ve looked at these, made bags and never actually bought one until today! I thought for sure I wouldn’t like what was left, but honestly wouldn’t have gotten much different. I like tarte (except for the Rainforest palettes– no pigment at all and fallout), but tried so many new things–I’m excited!
I got:

—Babassou foundcealer (based on another comment, plus I only do SPF foundations)
–Amazonian clay blush in Blushing Bride (love this blush, trying new color)
–Rose Gold Clay pot eyeliner (based on another comment, would not usually go for something like this, so glad to try something new!)
–Gifted Amazonian clay mascara (based on another comment on here, I love lights, camera… mascara and have samples of most of the others, so trying for the first time)
–Sugar Rush Shower Sugar Body Scrub (don’t need brushes and LOVE body scrubs)
–Color Splash Seaglass Lipstick in Strawberry Shimmer (love shimmers for spring and summer)
–Sugar Rush yellow plaid bag (reminded me of Clueless)

I thought it was only one day but it’s still up on the site!

Emily

I was so thankful that I got distracted with my kids until about 3:30 pm to build my cart cuz everything had changed since this morning. They had my shade back in stock in the shape tape and the watermelon pallet I really wanted to try. Plus the maneater mascara, the glide lipstick, the body shimmer oil, the setting powder, plus that 🦄 bag which I think is super cute . I really looking forward to receiving my bag box whatever, I’m just so excited to get it!

Kaleigh

Did you get the unicorn fabric bag? I was refreshing for that bag for hours!!! I asked a Tarte rep and they said it was not one of the options they had at any point yesterday. I settled for the It’s Electric bag, but the Unicorn one is the one I really wanted. And then, after I bought mine, I saw they had the mermaid sequin bag up!

Mel

Sounds like a win! Perhaps I will revisit the site. :o)

Kristen

I need to be stopped! Got one box at 6am, then found out they added more items and next thing I know a 2nd box is ordered! Gahhhhh! So excited to get some faves and try some new products!!

Sherri

I did that the last time they had the deal…

Jacki

Thanks for posting this. I created a bag early this morning, but the only foundation available in my shade was not one that works well for me. I never checked out. Now the foundation I wanted is available! I had to choose a different eye product and bag, but I’ll enjoy the ones I’m getting

Sherri

Whoa – I just got an email saying my order has shipped! I mean, I did order pretty early this morning, but still, that’s pretty fast. I’m excited to get my kit!

Debi

Me too!! Thats lightning fast. I’m still waiting for an order I placed a month ago from YSL beauty

Cat

That’s gotta be some sort of record!!

Sherri

And I just got an email from FedEx that they have my shipment in hand!

Cat

I never got an order confirmation email or anything. Is that normal?

Julia

Mine came about 10 hours later. Thought the lag was odd but seems to have gone through. Credit card was charged right away.

Christa H.

I would email Customer Service. I got my email immediately and shipping confirmation with in hours of placing the order.

Alice

I called and they sent my confirmation.

Sherri

They do send confirmation emails, did you check your spam folder? I can’t remember if I got mine right away or if there was a delay, though.

Cat

Yes, I have checked the junk folder. No email from them :/

Marie

Easy pass for me. By time I got off work all the items and bags I liked are sold out. So I get to spend money on my Spyder F3L instead.😁

Stephanie

I got my kit pretty early today, so I’m excited for what I’m getting! I just went back to look, and they have a new eye palette available (cute watermelon Sugar Rush) and also the Pro To Go Contour Palette is showing available under the face category. Just thought I would share in case people are worried nothing is left. 😀

Lisa

I got mine at 8 EST this morning but I never got confirmation email which I am uneasy about since this means I don’t have order # if something goes wrong . I checked out as guest I checked credit card and I was charged. This was my first time doing this maybe no email is normal .

I got powder foundation , pressed tinted finishing powder, fall palette , lash curler , Slay ( Orchid) lip paint, Sugar moisturizer and the sparkly white bag.

Christa H.

I would email Customer Service. I got my email immediately and shipping confirmation with in hours of placing the order.

Lisa

They must have emailed middle night or early this morning because today I had an email from them.😊

Alice

Didn’t need, but sure did want. Got everything I wanted!

HEATHER

You guys are so strong to pass! I have cancelled all but one sub box since I’m unemployed. So I got 2 of the Tarte bags!! 🤪

h

Happy that you will treat yourself with exactly what you want. Enjoy! Hope things get better quickly.

Cat

funnn!!!!

belle

all the good eye palettes (fall feels) sold out before i could go to ulta and figure out which shade of concealer to get TT^TT now i can’t get anything in this whole bundle bc they prolly won’t add any more eyeshadow palettes

Kaleigh

They did add another eyeshadow palette! The cute watermelon one. I actually finally bit the bullet and got it!

ChrissyLou

I set an alarm and got up at 3:30 for this!
I got:
The sugar rush skin tint (CC Cream – still looking for a suitable replacement for the discontinued one from smashbox)
Hampton’s pallet
Brow gel
Flamingo mascara
Quick dry matte in obsessed
Self tanner
Lips bag

Amy

Have you tried The Balm Balm Shelter?

Gigi

I just realized, when there is a 40% event (now everywhere is at least 30% off like urban decay, KVD…). I mean I can buy the foundation at $23, Concealer at $15, and it’s just $38 ….

Carol

I made a bag, but I don’t know if I’m going to go through with it. I wish there were other options in the foundation category (like the SPF setting powder!). I do love their blush though, but I don’t think that justifies the bag.

Most likely I’ll do what I do every time and not make the purchase lol.

Mary K

I do that too! I find that after building the bag/cart and sitting on it for a day, the urge almost always goes away. I once kept a list of all the stuff I almost bought in a year and it was such an eye-opener! 😀

Carol

Yeah, I ended up not ordering it. There really isn’t anything in the foundation category that I want. I already have three tinted moisturizers/BB creams that I like but hardly ever wear. I was thinking of trying the powder foundation, but I know that I will probably never use it. I wish that they had other products in that category, that SPF powder would have been ideal, but I might have tried a primer or a setting/finishing powder or something.

Oh well, I’ll do the same thing next time lol. That flamingo bag was so cute though!

Kaleigh

I am in your same boat! I think for like three years I always make a bag and then I talk myself out of it. There’s just quite a few things I won’t use at all, which makes the rest of it not worth it.

This time I was looking forward to the body category, which is a huge letdown! Last time they had the mermaid skin serum, dry shampoo, and mist which I liked. I also am not a huge fan of these bags.

Normally the bag that I want sells out before I get on the site, causing me to skip the kit altogether. My fave past bags were the mermaid one, the unicorn one, and the snakeskin one. This time the bags are all there I’m just not that interested.

Alicia

So funny because I always do this with so much! I always thought from the comments I was the only one that done this but I finally went through with it and I’m so excited! This is my first time ordering and I’ve always wanted to try their assortment of makeup. To buy it separate would be so much more so I feel I really got a good deal since the foundation it self is originally worth $40 some by itself! I also went through and found out what cost the most so I could get the best bang for my buck! Then the Shape Tape concealer was on sale for only $19 and I got the foundation to go with it as well that I’ve been wanting to try for so long.

I pretty happy with my purchase for once and really excited but don’t feel bad I’m usually doing exactly what you do with other boxes and sales!

Danielle

Hahaha you sound just like me!! I do that all the time! I wondered if others do this as well! Glad to hear I’m not alone! I was thinking of checking it out, but I know I’ll never follow through on the purchase. I have FabFitFun, and I shop their Edit sales etc. then I have BoxyCharm, BoxyCharm Luxe and Premium. I have a problem. No one needs that much make up! I have no self control.

Marissa

I’ve been wanting to try the babassou foundation/concealer since it has sunscreen and they say its hydrating. Considering the whole kit is less than the price of that and the brush to go with it I feel like I just got my HG blush, a waterproof mascara, and an eye shadow free all in a cute little snake bag. Honestly thinking about going back for my power foundation….

Christa H.

That foundation is my HG. So amazing 🙌👍😊

Alice

I can’t wait to try it.

CC

Had everything in my cart and then realized the only thing I actually want is the foundation. And that’s $39, not $63 lol. It’s good to hold off sometimes!

Bandaa

I did the same thing! It’s comforting to know I’m not alone with this affliction! Created a kit when the sale opened, then realized I really only “wanted” a $30 blush/highlighter compact. I’ve bought a ridiculous amount of makeup and skincare since I started working from home in March. I’ve bought makeup for my mom and sister as well. Let’s not discuss the items included in monthly subscriptions. Maybe next time I’ll go for it!

Ragsy

This is my FAVORITE sale of the entire year!! Eek!!! This will be my fifth time buying a custom Tarte kit and honestly it is worth every single penny. Like, a full size foundation, beautiful makeup brushes, eyeshadow palettes, bronzer, blush…it’s literally an entire face of prestige vegan and cruelty-free makeup for $63. Even the bags are cute!! Seriously, if you’ve got the spare cash but aren’t sure – DO IT. (#peerpressure) 🤪

Jenn

I was going to buy it so I went on. I just wasnt overly impressed with the options. I’ll just save my money because I dont need any of it.

Stephanie Alyssa

I said I didn’t need this…but they got me!

I have never tried their foundation before, but going by my skintone and previous powders I used, I took their quiz and I am 22S /16N. I went with 22S.

I love that they offered a blush/highlighter duo and an eyeshadow palette and I went with those and the H2O gloss that Ipsy offered a month or so ago. I chose a limited edition lights camera lashes mascara and the foundcealer brush with the tassel lip bag 🙂

CJ

I initially was going to pass… but it’s my birthday week and they had tinted spf and bronzer and brow gel… all of which I “need” or use daily and I like their Big Ego mascara. Could live without anything in the lip category and chose the powder brush for body.

Rae

While I’m bummed that I wasn’t able to choose the Fall Feels palette, I’m eager to try out some new items! I chose:
Shape Tape Matte Foundation
Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush (this is absolutely my all time favorite blush formula; I’m trying a new shade!)
Tarteist Pro To Go Palette (I haven’t actually tried tarte’s eyeshadows yet)
Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara (this one is so ridiculously lengthening; I love it!)
The Lip Sculptor
Foundcealer Brush (hoping it works well with the shape tape foundation)
Pucker Up Pouch

Haley Faye

Got mine at 630 am est!

Luna

Will you be reviewing your bag on here Haley?!!? 😀

Rachel

Same here! I set my alarm placed my order for the kit and then went back to sleep lol

Julie

I’m so glad I remembered this was happening today and signed on early. This is my first time participating in this promo – what a great way to stock up on makeup essentials (and maybe try something new) for a great price! I am not the best at picking foundation colors and didn’t think to do my research beforehand so I picked the Amazonian Clay airbrush foundation since there wasn’t an overwhelming number of options. I also got the Amazonian Clay bronzer, kitten eyeliner, lash primer, lip paint, foaming self tanner and snake print bag. I started building my bag and got sidetracked and by the time I got back to it, the lip color I wanted was gone, but there are enough options that it was no biggie. Overall I am stoked with my choices because I got a few things I needed to restock anyway.
