Tarte 8th World of Wonder Best of the Amazon 7 Piece Clay Collection Celeb Swatch Comparsions

Hey guys!

Just a quick post about the Tarte Today’s Special Value on QVC. I know some of you are having issues picking your shade. It’s difficult for me to recommend shades having never seen the actual product and also by getting comments saying, “Hey, I’m a MAC NC30, which shade am I?” or “I use Bare Escentuals Light, which shade am I?” That’s like asking me to pick a needle out of a hay stack ha! It’s kinda hard picking a foundation shade for someone I’ve never seen plus having never used this new foundation from Tarte I really don’t have hands on info what the shades look like.

But Tarte compiled a list of celebs for you to match up the foundation shades so maybe this will make things a little easier when you’re selecting your shade for the kit.

Nicole Kidman


Gisele Bundchen

Jennifer Lopez

Halle Berry

Hopefully this helps you choose your right shade!

Good Luck!

    I just got my kit yesterday and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I got medium and luckily it matched me. The blush and eye shadows are really nice too. I also really love the brush but have not used it yet because it is too pretty =). I haven’t tried the eyeliner or mascara but the foundation is nice so far. Great coverage and not drying. However, I am just trying it today. I also love the sample of the oil I have been dying to try it. Thank you so much for telling us about this kit. I am so glad I got it on auto delivery. I look forward to the future shipments! You are AWESOME MUSE! Thank you so much!

      Hi Kelly, IRL do you think the MEDIUM is lighter than the original swatches? Normally, Tarte’s MEDIUM is a bit too dark (orange) for me & the LIGHT is too light. I’m hoping this would be a better match. I hope you don’t mind, but what other foundation shades/brands (MAC, Lancome, BE, Bobbi Brown) do you use? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

    If Halle Berry is deep, I doubt there’s a match for me. xP

    what a great little list :) now please tell me about that lipglaze-looking lovely on the right!

    I was worried the light was going to be too dark but it matches my nc15 skin very nicely.

    Love this kit and can’t wait for the next two!

    Got mine today and I was right about the foundation not working for me lol. However it is an awesome value and I can get the foundation away to a friend :)

      return for a new shade jen!

    I got the fair, and it’s a bit too light for me. But it’s not too bad I can correct it with some bronzer. I’m between a MAC NC15 and NC20. I need to switch to the light for the other 2 shipments.

    I received mine yesterday and the kit is gorgeous. I bought fair because I’m always the lightest foundation shade, pale as a vampire with some pink undertones and initially it looked a shade too light on my fingers but when I buffed it out with the brush it matches my neck perfectly. I might need to move up to light and mix it with fair in the summer though. I was a big BE girl but this product was much easier to apply and there was no mess, tap, tap, tap. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn’t break me out
