Tarte Cosmetics 30% Off Makeup Haul + Price Comparison with Sephora

Like most of us innocent people, I had no idea about the Tarte Cosmetics 30% off makeup sale taking place online. Unfortunately for my bank account, Facebook alerted me to this fact and $180 later, here we are. I’ve tried very few things from Tarte, and heard bad reviews about the first Tartelette palette, so I was a little apprehensive at first. However, I lot of my Insta-friends kept recommending their products, so I took the dive and am so glad I did!

    Ooh you got some bargains. I’m very glad I resisted the urge to check out the sale! I have the Tartelette and LE Poppy Picnic palettes, a blush, a lip tint, Lights Camera Lashes mascara and the finishing powder. The only one I don’t absolutely adore is the finishing powder; it has a rough texture that isn’t that nice. My favourite are the palettes, all the shades are totally wearable and blend like a dream.

      I’m so glad this brand is finally available in AUS. They have some great products! Too bad Sephora like to overcharge 🙁

    I don’t have any Tarte prods, but the packaging is just so pretty, it coaxes me in. Will definitely be checking out their palettes on my next interstate trip!

      I’m so happy with the saving! Wish the brand was more easily available in AUS. I think it’d do well in Myer! Hoping to review them in a couple weeks 🙂

    Nice Haul Mel!! I love Tarte Cosmetics and I’m tempted but I’m trying to save money for my overseas trip this year.

    I love your haul Mel! Especially the Tartelette in Bloom palette!!! 😀 I’ve got a couple of Tarte products and whilst I always fall in love with the packaging, I can’t really say the same for the actual products themselves. I’m so devo that I missed out on the sale but I’m sure there’ll be other sales in the future! Oh and yes I do go to UON! You don’t look that familiar but I’m sure we’ve crossed paths at some point 🙂

    What a great haul! I’ve wanted the In Bloom palette since it came out! I’ve actually never owned anything by Tarte! :O

    No way! Did you have to pay for shipping?! That is such a steal. You are a true beauty guru. We could learn a few things from you. Now we’ll be spending the rest of the day upset that we missed out on this! Thanks Mel 😛

      Shipping was free since I spent over $166! I think the bargain hunter in me is definitely thanks to my (Filipino) mum! I’m super happy with the savings, but now it’s time to start saving 😛

        We consider ourselves pretty thrifty and good with sales, so we admire fellow bargain hunters!
