Tarte Beauty in the Basics Set ($47) is a May QVC’s Today’s Special that debuts May 11th and includes six full size Tarte products including the new Tarte Smoothing Balm Foundation. As always with these QVC sets you’re really getting an excellent value and a nice bang for your buck especially since you’ll be trying out brand new products in the set.
There’s been a lot of chatter though that the Beauty in the Basics Set is a bit repetitive due to the shades of eyeshadow in the palette. I understand, Tarte does in fact do a lot of nude, neutral eyeshadow palettes but honestly, I tried and review the Tarte Amazon Clay of Life Colored Clay Eyeshadow Palette and you might just want to take a chance on it as it appears Tarte has reformulated their eyeshadows for this palette and did a damn good job of it too.
Let’s take a peek!
I haven’t purchased Lancome Mascara in years so I decided to grab Lancome Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara recently to make up for being so remiss with Lancome. For me, sorry, Lancome mascaras are typically a miss. I don’t have an issue paying big bucks for mascara as for me it is a splurge item in all honesty as I’m never very happy with the results of drugstore mascaras. However, it’s when I pay $25 and the formula is rubbish that I rant.
I feel like Lancome Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara is one of those mascara that has both pros and cons but the cons seem to outweigh the pros.

Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara is new volumizing mascara that Covergirl recently launched for Summer 2015. I’m always reading reviews where everyone is telling me that some Covergirl mascara or another is going to change my makeup life. I end up trying said mascara and come out of having a WTH am I missing experience as many times I’m disappointed.
This is particular the case with Lashblast formulas. I always find the applicators too big, quite clumsy, and for a klutz like me I have a lot of “you’ll poke your eye out, kid!” moments.
Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara does change things around slightly with a new thinner, spiker brush that promises to increase volume by up to 400%.
Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara ($22) is a lengthening mascara with a lightweight formula that infused with “stretch polymer” to give the look of false lashes. This mascara and a few other Touch in Sol makeup products have recently launched at Sephora.
Touch in Sol is actually a Korean brand which Sephora recently started carrying. Along with Tony Moly, Dr Jart, and a few other Korean brands, Sephora is well on its way to being the next Urban Outfitters and I, for one, am quite happy to see more Korean brands easily accessible at one of my favorite places to shop beauty!

Things you need ASAP, Essence Plump No Clump Mascara ($4.99)! Best mascara evers people! I typically dislike mascaras with huge club-like applicators (I’m talking to YOU Lashblast) because I’m clumsy and I’ll likely
shoot poke my eye out when using it. Plus honestly, do we really need a huge applicator? It seems unnecessary and it tends to lead to messy applications!
But Essence Plump No Clump changes everything….EVERYTHING!
