Tarte’s known for making some of the best eyeliner out there, and now’s as good a time as ever to update your own collection of this cosmetic and the rest of your makeup bag. Tarte’s incredible Friends & Family Sale, which starts today and runs through July 31, means deals sitewide on the brand’s coveted beauty products.
Members of the brand’s Team Tarte club, which is free to join, can take 30% off some of the brand’s bestselling products with the code BESTIES, while those who’d rather not sign up can still get 25% off. Plus, you get free shipping on orders over $40, so shop away (prices below are calculated at 30% off) — and those spending more than $55 get a free Clean Queen Hand Sanitizer thrown in free (use the code FREE at checkout to snag the bonus item).
One of the highlights from the sale is the brand’s famously good Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner, which made our list of best liquid eyeliners of 2020 — as well as the rest of their best lipstick, eye makeup, skin care, palettes and more.
Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner ($16.80, originally $24; tartecosmetics.com)
This vegan formula is one of Tarte’s best-loved products. It’s a two-in-one, with both a liquid and gel pencil formulation that you can use separately or together. If you want to go with a full-on cat-eye, line your lashes tight to the lash line with the gel part of the pencil, then add in a retro-glam wing with a swoop of the liquid eyeliner — it’s hard to mess up too much thanks to a flexible tip that disperses the color evenly. Speaking of, the liquid is notable for being as fast-drying as it is, leaving behind a semi-matte finish on your cat-eye once it dries.
After you’ve added the eyeliner to your cart, check out a few of our other Tarte favorites below:
Tartelette in Bloom Clay Palette ($20.30, originally $39; tartecosmetics.com)
The rose and bronze tones take you from summer right into fall and winter — and the highly pigmented tones will last all day long. We love the range of matte and delicately shimmering shades in this palette. Plus, each has an anti-smudging superpower thanks to an Amazonian clay infusion.
Shape Tape Concealer ($18.90, originally $27; tartecosmetics.com)
Available in 30 different shades, Tarte’s incredible Shape Tape concealer has almost 20,000 5-star reviews. Whether you wear it with foundation or just to cover up the odd blemish, it gives you coverage for 16 hours and won’t cake up on you a few hours in. Plus, it helps smooth out fine lines if that’s what you’re after too. (P.S. If you’re nervous about guessing the right shade for you, Tarte has a shade finder quiz you can take.)
Maneater Mascara ($16.10, originally $23; tartecosmetics.com)
Some mascaras make you choose between volume, curl and length — this one does all three in just one coat, not to mention you won’t get flaking, smudging or clumping with this formula and brush, which boasts more than 500 bristles for precise separation.
Tarte Sex Kitten Liquid Liner ($14, originally $20; tartecosmetics.com)
If you’re out all day (or *wistful sigh for the old days* all night), this is the eyeliner to get you through. It boasts up to 12 hours of longevity, and it has a super skinny but flexible tip that makes it easy to get as super precise or as bold as you want. It’s also available in a gel pencil if liquid’s not your thing.
Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($14, originally $20; tartecosmetics.com)
With a range of shades that go from “everyday” to “turn up the drama,” Tarte’s matte liquid lipstick gets great marks thanks to its staying power (eight hours!) and full coverage that dries the second you apply it (no awkward, runny color-bleeding here).
Deep Dive Cleansing Gel ($17.50, originally $25; tartecosmetics.com)
One of Tarte’s bestselling skin care products, the brand’s Deep Dive Cleansing Gel has 5-star reviews all the way — and it deserves them thanks to its (vegan, derm-tested) ingredients that include lavender for toning, Indian gooseberry for brightening and provitamin B5 for helping your skin glow.
