If you care about makeup at all, Tarte's 24-hour flash sale is a total must-shop. Whether you're a committed Tarte-lover or a makeup newbie, you won't want to miss out on this event.
On Wednesday, for just one day, Tarte is offering six full-size products, plus a bag to put them in for just $63 -- a bundle the retailer estimates would cost around $200 or more. You'll pick out an adorable makeup bag and get to fill it with one product from each of these categories: foundation, face, eyes, mascara, lips and body/brushes. That's a full face of makeup for the price of one high-end product. And considering Tarte has some of the best products on the market, this is a huge steal.
For a little background, Tarte's whole mission is about creating fun, glamorous makeup with ingredients that are actually good for you. It offers products that are cruelty-free and hypoallergenic, and even has a ton of vegan skin care products. Its products never include the stuff you want to stay away from in your beauty products -- think parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and other not-so-nice ingredients.
Some of its most popular product lines stem from the company's efforts to find ingredients that are natural and effective. It has a line of Amazonian clay facial products, the Amazonian clay full coverage foundation with SPF 15 ($39; tartecosmetics.com) being one of my all-time favorite foundations. The Rainforest of the Sea products feature algae and marine extracts that are packed with antioxidants; the High Tides & Good Vibes eyeshadow palette ($39; tartecosmetics.com) is a perfect option for a fun and glittery summer look.
Tarte also has other makeup and skin care lines that offer slightly different things. Sugar Rush features vegan and cruelty-free makeup and the prices skew a bit lower -- though you won't be sacrificing the quality that Tarte offers. The packaging is super cute, and right now there's a ton of products perfect for achieving that effortless summer glow, like the Sun & Fun baked bronzer ($24; tartecosmetics.com) or the Fresh & Frosted highlighter palette ($23; tartecosmetics.com).
Tarte also has a collection of athleisure beauty products for an active, maybe slightly lower-maintenance lifestyle, with products like the limited-edition Hair Goals dry shampoo ($19; tartecosmetics.com) and Tarteguard tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 ($36; tartecosmetics.com).
With all that said, here are a few of our favorite products from Tarte to get you started on your shopping -- but check back on the site to make sure which products are eligible for the flash sale. There's never been a better, or cheaper, time to stock up on all your beauty basics. And even if you're not a huge makeup person, this is the perfect time to start building your kit. Just be sure to act fast, since the sale only lasts until midnight on Wednesday.
