Tarte has the cutest limited edition lip and cheek set for spring! It’s their new Gifts From The Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection. Already garnering rave reviews, this little set will appeal to both tree huggers and color enthusiasts alike…
So what’s the story behind achiote, you ask? Well according to Tarte, during their recent travels, they discovered achiote, a natural, golden pink pigment that comes from “The Lipstick Tree” and it has been a longstanding beauty secret amongst women in Brazil. All three of the products in this set contains achiote which produces a shimmering golden pink that is universally flattering. The set includes (as shown from left to right):
– 0.12 oz Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss in Achiote
– 0.10 oz LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Luster in Achiote
– 0.2 oz Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Achiote
True to Tarte fashion, these products also touts a couple of good-for-you ingredients including maracuja oil which protects, hydrates and soothes; amazonian clay which improves elasticity while absorbing excess oil; and Vitamins C and E for a boost of antioxidant activity.
And how adorable is the packaging?? It retails for $42 but is valued at $70, so it’s a great way to get 3 of Tarte’s amazing products at a fraction of the price. I think I’ll be doing some shopping when my exams are over :)…
