Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift from Tarte Cosmetics

I recently popped into a Sephora and picked up the Sephora Favorites Summer Essentials 2017 Kit which has some amazing sample size products. I posted about the whole kit here, so go on and check it out if you’re interested! Aside from that kit, I also picked up my Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift, and I chose the Tarte option. The other choice was a Caudalie two-piece skincare mini.

The Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift from Tarte is also a two-piece mini set that features a blush and  lipstick in special colours. These are exclusive shades designed just for the Sephora gifts. I have been super into Tarte lately and was really excited for this gift.

How beautiful is that blush?

You may have seen me raving about the Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints that I have gotten in a gift set and Ipsy bags over the past few months. The Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift includes a Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint so it is like a sister to the lippies I have been loving. This one is smooth, opaque, and creamy and is a really pretty light pink nude hue. The colour is called Birthday Suit which is very fitting for the set.

The blush is one of their famous Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blushes and it is in the shade Paaarty, which is a light pink colour. It is super smooth to apply and gives a lovely flush. It can be layered nicely to add more opacity.

Overall I think this is an adorable Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift and am so glad that Sephora has such a great program that offers this.
