Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit Review & Swatches

Golden Opportunity Tarte To Go Kit Summer 2013

What? $10 Tarte? Yup, the Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit is a mere $10 bucks! This is a great way to try the new Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner without committing to a full size.

Hey, I know for a fact bronzers can be scary so who wants to dish out $37 only to find out they really don’t love the product they purchased?

Tarte gives you the perfect little deluxe sample packaged up with their cult favorite powder bronzer in Park Ave Princess so you can give it a try for yourself!

Unfortunately the coral was sold out but I did pick up Terra Copper which also happens to be a very me shade.
