Shopping Haul: Tarte Cosmetics 2017 Boxing Day Sale

I dread the sales that start after Christmas. Not that sales are bad, but they are so tempting and the last thing I need after Christmas is to do more shopping! I tried so hard not to buy anything but I did end up online shopping for Boxing Day at a few stores. I mostly bought clothing but of course, ended up making a beauty purchase too!

Tarte Cosmetics was offering 25% off everything site-wide (some products excepted, AKA the shape tape) this included their sale items which is where I got my items below.

All prices are in Canadian Dollars

All of the items are from Tarte’s Holiday collection. Unfortunately, the blush palette and glitter liner trio are not available on the Tarte website as of this post.

Artful Accessories Brush Set
Original Price: $57.00, Boxing Day Sale Price: $21.84

These are crazy soft brushes! My sister has a set of brushes from Tarte that she absolutely loves so when I saw that these were on sale I knew I didn’t want to pass up on them. They are vegan, cruelty-free brushes.

They feel comfortable in my hands and I like the density of each brush.

The set includes a powder, foundation, blush, crease and shader brush. It also came with a plastic brush holder which I won’t use because I keep my brushes in a brush roller.

I’ve used the blush brush so far and I like it. I wouldn’t normally use a brush this small but it works perfectly for blush.

Blush Bazaar Palette
Original Price: $57.00,  Boxing Day Sale Price: $19.58

I wanted this palette the moment I saw it release. This has 8 blushes and 2 highlighters. The pan size is equivalent to the deluxe size which is perfect for me.

I don’t own too many blushes so this palette is a great way for me to grow that collection without purchasing them individually.

Metallic Treats Glitter Liner Set
Original Price: $38.00,  Boxing Day Sale Price: $16.57

I had wanted glitters this year for the holidays. It’s too late to wear at Christmas but I just wanted this set so badly!!  These also look to be deluxe sizes which is great because I would probably use them for special occasions anyway.

One end of this has a liquid metallic liner and the other end is a glitter liner.  The colours include gold, rose gold and silver.

I have a few weddings/showers/events coming up this year so I am looking forward to using these metallic liners then!

Side Note
I realize that during the Boxing Day Sale, all of these items were discounted more than they are right now (for example, the Artful Accessories Brush set is on sale for $41.00, on Boxing Day it was $29.00) I guess my advice to anyone shopping on Tarte is to be aware of their price fluctuation. I would maybe try shopping during a friends and family sale and definitely boxing day when they are offering better discounts.

Also, Tarte now charges $1.00 for samples. I wasn’t paying attention and actually ended up adding this tiny packet for their maracuja eye treatment to my cart. (funny enough the sample was also 25% off, so I technically got this for $0.75 )

I think I can get two uses from this but it’s very lame that Tarte is charging for samples that I would usually get for free at a beauty store. It doesn’t make sense especially if I’m buying directly from their site. Lesson learned, don’t add any samples from Tarte.

Anyways, that’s what I got! Let me know if you did any Boxing Day shopping and what you got!

Lots of Love,
Dal

  1. I’ve been tempted more than once by the Tarte sales – they really do sales right!
    Those brushes you picked up look really nice! And dang, what a DEAL. 😮
    I’m not a big fan of Tarte blushers so I’d love to hear your thoughts on that palette.
    Charging for samples is in bad taste, in my opinion (unless it’s substantial enough for, say, travel)
    Opening up Tarte on my browser now… 😛

    • This sale was super great, I was seriously surprised at the discount. I own a blush from Tarte that I really like. For me they bend really well so I hope the palette performs the same but I’ll likely do a review on that.

      I couldn’t believe how stupidly ting the sample was. Not deluxe or travel size at all. It’s a measly one use foil packet. I’d never get it again.

      Happy shopping!

  2. Great haul! I was super tempted by their sale (I have my eye on the In Bloom palette) but ultimately didn’t get anything. That palette is gorgeous with so many colour choices, and I think you’ll get a lot of use out of it!
    Charging for samples…who does that?? Oh well, at least you got $0.25 off of it LOL.
