Hello all! Hope you’re doing well, today we will be talking about the Tarte cosmetics Love, Trust, & Fairy dust eye and cheek palette from the new Flower powered collection. I haven’t been this excited for a palette in a LONG time. I know I know, its just another neutral palette, but something about it immediately grabbed my attention and at that moment I knew I needed it. (The packaging might have slightly helped.) Speaking of the packaging, I read a lot of comments on instagram about how this collection looked like children’s makeup….to each their own.
Let’s jump into some things about the palette:
- Limited Edition
- Retails for $39 (Tarte, Ulta, Sephora)
- 10 eyeshadows
- 1 highlight shade
- Cruelty Free as always with Tarte
(All information was taken directly from Tartecosmetics.com)
Now I know you’re all dying to see this packaging so let’s go!
Isin’t it beautiful?! It’s definitely my favorite packaging tarte has done, then again I’m a sucker for anything with glitter!
What’s that? You want to see the inside?! Well here it is!
The mirror also has the cutest little touch! (Love, Trust, & Fairy dust)

Lastly I just want to add that I LOVE this palette with all my heart! It has totally won me over! I highly suggest picking up this palette if the colors are your cup of tea.
I was very hesitant on purchasing this palette. Why you may ask, because let’s be honest…. lately too faced hasn’t been doing so well. I bit the bullet and went into Ulta and I swatched the palette and instantly fell in love. This palette has beautiful pigmentation and amazing neutral color selection…. if these colors speak to you, BUY IT!
Some things to know:
- This collection is Ulta exclusive
- Palette retails for $45
- It’s actually called the candy eyes palette
Let’s talk about the packaging. This palette comes in a tin that looks like an old school candy box. The back of the tin even features the shade named but with a candy picture… just like candy boxes do. The attention to detail is phenomenal on this packaging presentation.
Once you open the tin you see a piece of thick waxy paper on top of the shadows (as if they were candy pieces).
Now I know you’re sitting there like “SHOW US THE SHADOWS ALREADY” so let’s jump into it.
Now onto the swatches
Top to bottom:
- Sparkling cider
- Sugared strawberry
- Cream puff

- Raspberry cocoa
Top to bottom:
- Sweet toffee

Top to bottom:

- Whipped cream
The swatches speak for themselves, Too Faced and Kandee Johnson did an amazing job on this palette and the entire I want kandee collection honestly. I would definitely recommend you pick this palette up!
Hello beauty junkies! Today we are going to talk about Ulta sending out Free gifts?! Yes you read that right, I said FREE.
It started off as any other day, I went about my errands and came home to check my mail and a little white box from Ulta beauty was waiting for me. I thought it was strange because I hadn’t ordered anything. For such a small box… it sure was heavy. I opened the box to find a sweet note/postcard and a free high end product!
I will insert pictures of the note below but first lets go over what it said. Tarte x Ultamate rewards platinum was the first thing I saw, meaning this gift was because I was a platinum member! The note then goes on to thank me for being a platinum member and saying this was a special treat just for me.
Im sure at this point you’re all wondering what the gift was…… am I right? It was the tarteist pro glow highlight & contour palette. I was in complete and utter shock, or as the beauty community now says “I WAS SHOOK”. Ulta already has an amazing rewards system in my opinion, so the fact that they’re now sending gifts for spending sooo much money is fantastic. If you don’t shop at ulta you’re probably like what makes their rewards system so amazing aka better than sephora (which I still love so hush). Let me tell you a few things about ulta’s rewards program.
- They give a free birthday gift
- If you sign up for emails they have promotions where you can get 2x, 3x, or even 5x bonus points on that particular item/brand.
- Your points turn into MONEY.
- You have to spend only $450 a year to be platinum, which let’s face it is easy to do when you’re addicted to beauty products.
I think it was very sweet of them to send platinum members such a sweet gift and I thank them. I think more companies should try this approach, it makes the costumer feel appreciated for all of the money we spend. So again I say thank you to Tarte cosmetics and Ulta Beauty.
I know this palette isn’t anywhere near new, but it’s new to me. I’ve been eyeing up this palette for a long time…. my friend even suggested I get it because it’s “so me”. I hesitated because of the fact that I already had so many palettes so did I really need another one? Once I found out it was going to be a part of ulta’s 21 days of beauty sale I knew I definitely needed another palette!

Let me just say that in my opinion this is the most beautiful rosy-toned eyeshadow palette I have ever had the honor to lay my eyes upon.
Swatches are as followed.

I apologize for the messiness of these swatches.
Top to bottom:
I am loving these shadows! I personally think that it is worth the $42 price point. The blendability of the shadows, the one swipe pigmentation…what more could you ask for. If you’re into rosy-toned shadows you need to run out and pick this up! (or purchase it online using ebates to get cash back!)
