Although not listed on QVC’s page the deluxe size bronzer powder and sample of Marcuja Oil will be included in the first shipment of your set but not in future deliveries if you you go with the AD option. The oil has a small dropper and is 7ml in size where as the bronzer is 0.11 oz. I just wanted to let you know that indeed, you will get both of these items with your order. The bronzer is a traditional muddy golden shade of brown with a matte finish.

  • SmolderEYES Waterproof Eyeliner Full Size $22

Total: $180.50

Items I didn’t include in the final cost:

  • Bronzer
  • Maracuja Oil
  • Makeup Bag

Although very nice quality, I’m not sure I’d dub the brushes at a $27 price tag however regardless you’re seeing the overall value here.

Another concern was about the new Peaceful blush shade included in the kit. I know many of you were fearful that it was the same as the Glisten color included in the World Wonder Set. I’d like to clarify they are two very different shades. I actually like Glisten more for the record but Peaceful is lovely as well.

Peaceful is a warmer shade of peach. I find it’s a true peach shade and doesn’t have alot of pink to it where as Glisten has a more peachy-pink NARS Orgasm going on. Glisten has considerably more pink in the color than Peaceful does. I thought Peaceful was a semi-matte finish but it does have a bit of barely there sparkle versus Glisten which has a good deal of golden shimmer.

The two shades are nothing alike. So if you already own Glisten, rest assured that Peaceful is an entirely other shade. The 12 Hour Blushes have a great wear time and you can get a full day of color from them. They are pigmented, blend easily, and leave behind a lovely pop of color. They are Tarte’s first true powder blush and quite well done in my opinion!

Another item in the set that I fell in love with was the LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Sweet. If you already own Glisten Blush you’ll love this shade as it’s along a similar peachy, pink vein. The LipSurgence Lip Luster’s have a tasty peppermint taste, a medium color pay off, and a moisturizing formula.

For your eyes they have included both a Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow and a Waterproof Eyeliner. I thought the two items mismatched in color as the cream shadow is a Shimmering Taupe and the liner is a plummy aubergine. I’m looking forward to Tivo’ing the presentation on QVC to see how Maureen uses the liner. This is my first try with the liner and I liked it alot. It has a decent wear time on my waterline and I experience no problems with fading or smudging. I used it as an all over color shadow as well and it worked a treat. I’ve already reviewed the Cream Eyeshadows which I really liked, you can see that review by clicking here. I’ve also reviewed Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara in a prior post as well which you can see by clicking here.

The two brushes included are very nice. I’m actually grown partial to the blush one and have been using it daily. The brushes are soft and have no shedding problems. The shadow brush is a nice dense tip so it works great with the cream shadow pot.

Now the star of the kit is the Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. I’ve shared some swatches photos here but expect a review of it in another post as it does deserve a review all its own and needs a bit more testing on my end. I don’t know how these compare to the foundation shades as I only have medium in the foundation. I’ll get into more details though in my review!

    OMG!! Thanks for this review. I was concerned about the medium I ordered.
    because it looked too light in other reviews but now that I see it in your review
    I think I chose the right color. I used your swatches for the other TSV to chose
    the shade so I am now confident this will work. I think the only think I might give
    away or sell on ebay is the blush. It looks too similar to glisten IMO but who
    knows, I might change my mind when I get it in my hands. Thanks again.

    Do you happen to know how Peaceful compares to Blissful? I ordered this set a few days ago with just the “soft rose” description for the blush, but given that I already have Blissful and Glisten (among a few others – I’m terrible!), Peaceful might be a bit unnecessary for me. Any thoughts?

    Reply

    • 6/28/11 16:15 the Muse:

      Alison I’m not sure as I don’t believe I own Blissful….I’ll have to check my stash but I don’t think I have that shade. Sorry :-/

      Reply

    • 6/29/11 2:13 Tish:

      Hi Alison. If I may, Blissful appears more guava pink on me than peach. Comparing the Muse’s swatch of Peaceful to my swatches of Blissful, they don’t look similar to me in any way. Hope this helps ;)

      Reply

      • 6/29/11 7:55 Alison:

        Actually, that does help. When I swatch Blissful on me, it looks just like the Muse’s swatch of Peaceful… but your post prompted me to also swatch Glisten, which looks VERY different swatched on me than it does on the Muse – amazes me what different skins do to blush. Now I’m really curious about Peaceful. :)

    Nice review, thanks. Quick question with regard to fragrance in these products. I’ve got allergies and sensitive skin and have no experience with the Maracuja oil in products. I have used argon oil in the past though without any problem. I know it’s from a nut and the maracuja oil is from a flower. I have dry skin also. What are your thoughts. Keep up the good work. Oh, I left a note for you in the comments of the Sephora section, your poduct review of the Instant Moisture Mask (I think it’s called). Thanks!

    • 6/29/11 14:12 the Muse:

      hey sillybugs…I find maracuja has a lavender scent….I don’t have sensitivities to fragrance in my product but the scent is pretty up and out there so if lavender isn’t your thing you might want to avoid. I hope this helps!?

      Oh thanks! Sorry delayed reply and I didn’t see the comment but promise to answer shortly ;-D I look forward to reading it!

      Hey Sillybugs – I am very sensitive to fragrances in my products. ALmost everything is too strong but I didn’t think the Maracuja was a problem. I don’t use it all the time (pure laziness sometimes) but I think because it’s all natural I can tolerate it.
      ANything chem though I have real issues (i.e. Tide detergent, any smelly fabric softeners, bath & bodyoworks, et.)
      Since you’re only getting a deluxe sample size I really don’t think you could go wrong.
      The other tarte products don’t have any fragrance at all that I can detect and I have a super sniffer. :-) Hope that helps.

          TIde detergent is ruining my life.

          I hope I was able to help you. I think you will not be really bothered my the maracuja, it’s really soft in my opinion and I dont’ remember it lasting all that long.

      Glisten and Exposed are similar but I think Lorac is a little more coral? THey are close. I also think Glisten may have just a touch more shimmer than exposed. I don’t have exposed with me today or I could really describe the difference.

    It’s a good thing I read through everything even the comments. I had originally ordered medium but had to change it tan since the shades run a little too light. I’ve seen a couple of swatches of it online but couldn’t tell exactly which shade I should get. Maureen Kelly said to go with Medium if unsure but it looks little too light for me. I’m normally a medium — an NC30-35 in mac (depending on how much sun exposure I get) — but I feel like I have to go with Tan. I use medium in TheBalm Time Balm Concealer and it looks the same as Tan. Ahhh… The hassle of ordering online!

    Thank you for the swatches and reviews, Muse. Now I’m even more excited to get my grubby hands on this set. I wish I can fast forward to August! :(

    • 6/29/11 10:04 the Muse:

      mmm 30-35 should be good on tan tish…but medium might have been better but don’t quote me there. got a pic of yourself that would help ;D my pleasure dear!!!!!!!!!!! tarte def runs lighter so you prob made the best choice, I took pains to get the color swatches just right but they’ll vary from monitor to monitor :(

          hey tish! you are GORG girl ;-D I had a little hard time picking the shade for you tbh as you are inbetween the medium and the tan. do you normally go for lighter concealers? as in the one color down rule? If so medium should be ok for. I wanna rec tan but I think it might not work as it might be a tad too dark as it’s an orange-y kinda tan. Medium should do the trick so long as you want to “brighten” your eye up a bit.

          • 6/30/11 11:36 Tish:

            Awww! Thanks, Muse! *blush* I knew I was between medium and tan which is why I found it really difficult to pick a shade. I thought tan looked similar to TheBalm Time Balm Concealer in Medium (which I already find a tad dark for me since I wear bronzer all the time :p) but after seeing more swatches of the concealers, I figured that Tan is a smidgen darker than TheBalm Time Balm medium. And since I dread looking like an idiot (pardon me) with even darker circles, I decided to go with medium. I think it should work fine just as long as it’s blended well. So thanks to you, I’m more at peace with my choice.

    Can’t wait to get mine. Hope fair is perfect for me. Most things I’ve read about this said to order a shade darker but, while I am not porcelain, I am fairly fair. It should arrive any day now (have not checked tracking today) so we shall see.

    I got the last TSV and have an extra fair foundation if anyone is interested in purchasing it. I have way too much left from the first delivery.

    Funnily enough, I have NEVER watched an episode! Crazy, right?! I am trying to hold off on finishing Dexter Season 5 for a while and just finished Weeds Season 6. I do need to start watching something new, so I’d like to gravitate towards this but there are so many vampire shows out right now, I’m a bit sick of them. But I eventually will give in. Did you read any of the books?

      nessa they offer a $4.95 return label which blah stinks but you can drop off at the PO, first class with confirmation and it’s far cheaper, It’s a pain to get to the PO but they are super about returns on makeup even used products so if the colors don’t work, etc…and you tried them, qvc still offers money back ;-D

      yay! I can’t wait to see it in person. It looks lovely however I don’t get a true blood vibe from the shades ;-D OMG seriously?! ;-D ha! You’re in for a treat!!!!!!!!!! I did indeed but I actually stopped mid-way through…I actually enjoy the show more than the books…which is odd! I’m up to date on both Dexter and Weeds. I’m currently trying to watch through game of thrones but it’s a ickle painful…it’s good but not as good as the books imho! I’m also loving Teen Wolf for some odd reason as it’s pretty corny.

      but agreed, overdose on vampires lately! :-/ I need more hours in the day to actually watch stuff I tivo ;D!

    I was thinking of reading game of thrones next, but have heard it’s hard to follow. I could NOT get into Teen Wolf, too corny! :) I kept picturing MJF on the roof of a van! :) I tried though, I really did try to get into it.

      if you normally read epic scifi dribble it shouldn’t be a problem. It gets boring sometimes but it’s really something I enjoyed reading through. The scope of the novels is amazing. If you LotR and easily read through that comparable to say the similarion it shouldn’t be a prob ;-D! LOL I thought of that too OMG! seriously thought of that, is it cheesy to say I loved that part of the movie?! LOL! ;-D I actually kinda think the kid who plays Scott is cute…it moves kinda sorta slow? but it isn’t too bad that I’m yawning through it! How about the Killing? It was pretty damn good, kept my interest!

        I am reading a lot of hunger games related books like the giver and knife of never letting go. I didn’t read LotR and I couldn’t sit through those movies, but I will give GoT a shot.
        I kept wanting to watch The Killing, but never got around to it. I’ll add that to the list.
        Have you seen breaking bad? I haven’t but my friend said it is like Weeds on drugs! :)

          Nessa, I’ve been putting off the hunger games for a while, are they really that great? Any examples of past lit you can compare it to? LoTR is epic for me ;-D I’ve read and reread it so many times. Avoid GoT books and just watch the show, you might like it better..The Killing was fairly good ;-D!!!!!!!!!!! no…:-/ I’ve always wanted to sit down and watch it but never did! ugh that’s another one on the list ;D!

            I thought they were fantastic and the movie for the first book will be coming out next year. Let’s see what to compare it to… Have you read ‘The Giver’? Other than that, I really can’t think of anything…
            Good reads has a good description of it and I’m on there, great site for avid readers (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2767052-the-hunger-games)
            There’s a lot of jaw dropping moments that really propelled me through the books.
            Not really a love story at all (which I like) but I’ve been reading that they’re adding a love story in the movie ugh! Hate that! Definitely worth a read.
            There are so many shows/dvds on my list too!

          • 6/29/11 15:04 the Muse:

            mmm no I haven’t. I bet get on it though if a movie is out ;-D!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you read Beautiful Creatures yet by the way? I’m a member of goodreads ;-D hehe!

            Figures, hollywood always has to get the sex and love in there…le sigh.

          • 7/1/11 11:52 kharanya:

            No way, read the books too! The show was great, but still absolutely nothing to approach how stunning the books are.

    Thanks for your review…I’m tempted to click “Buy!!!” but could you tell me one thing? Is cycopentasiloxane or any of the other cones listed as one of the main ingredients for the concealer? My skin HATES that stuff. TIA!!!

    When and if you ever get the info from Tarte, please do share :) I just received the second shipment of the last TSV, I’m liking it so far :)
    I have a feeling the blush brush may be the same with this set, but it is pretty good! I don’t mind a backup :)
    I have been liking Tarte’s QVC TSVs for the past few offerings, their stuff is great!

      I LOVE that blush brush and will enjoy having 2 of them. The 2nd 8th wonder kit is GORGEOUS! The bag is particularly nice so I think the bag coming in this new set will be top notch at well.

      WHAT am I still doing here? I’m gonna be late for yoga!

    Seems like the bag that comes with this new kit has partitions inside, great for organizing I think! Maybe the AD for this kit will also come with different bags, like the last TSV :)

    • 6/30/11 11:38 Penny:

      Yes, it will come with different bags (and brushes) in each kit. I love the second bag and the third bag is nice too .. looks like quilted satin.

    Muse: there is a new item# at QVC for the TSV and it says $60, Anyways, if you scroll down to the top of the description box you can see the sets for the future shipments. You probably already know this but wanted to post anyways. Im not sure about your rules for posting links so I am not doing here but anyone wanting to see what Im taking about just follow these steps. The pics of the sets look GORGEOUS!!! I love tarte. By the way, I am still waiting for my set. It shipped on the 23 by USPS and no tracking, first time ever this is happening.

      Nope, search item # A219175 and then look at the link •Check out future shipments—they are there.

      Reply

  • 6/30/11 14:08 Penny:

    If you want to order A-D, you have to use # A219234 for the TSV price. Not sure what the item # is for individual shipment. It isn’t linked on that item #.

    If you don’t opt in for auto-delivery, will you be able to preview the rest of the shipments? I never like to sign up for auto deliveries on anything in case I don’t like whats in them.

    I purchased the set today and spoke with a QVC representative about the oil & bronzer and she said it does not come with it. When I asked her did it come before and sell out she said she never seen that set? I gave her the item # and she was unable to pull it up. Anyone else try to order it today?

    I must say this is the best kit ever! The concealer is hands down beautiful! Medium fits my nc 25 tone perfectly, and gives me a glow and great coverage at the same time. I was disappointed in the 8th world set as I was between foundation shades. Using it all together makes for one pretty look!
