Ahhh Tarte’s Carried Away Collector’s Set is a huge selection of Tarte products all rolled into a very large travel roll makeup bag. Tarte introduction of the set with their Holiday 2012 Collection is a refreshing change from their typical Jewelry Box themed palettes from years past.
The Carried Away Set is more about travel friendly options and a selection of products that can be broken up and either toted away with you or used on their own. This is a more versatile selection of products that doesn’t confine you to a bulky palette. No question, Tarte’s past Jewelry Box Palettes are absolutely gorgeous. However, these types of palettes are a bit bulky and aren’t travel friendly.
Carried Away gives you the option to easily tote your makeup with you or remove it from the makeup bag it comes with and take only one or two pieces of the collection with you. As I said the Jewelery Box Palettes are gorgeous but I do like the option of removing the eyeshadow palette or the blush or the lipglosses and just taking those with me….where as with the larger palette I have to tote it ALL with me.
The Carried Away Set definitely proves easier to travel with.
Let’s take a look!
Poppy King has teamed up with Boots No7 to create her new Rain Drops Lip Crayon. These launched mmmm, I’d like to say Summer 2012 in the UK but it could be Spring. Don’t quote me there. I did originally blog them on the launch in the UK but I never actually tried them.
I’m happy to report though that the Boots No7 Poppy King Rain Drops Lip Crayons have launched here in the US.

Tarte has launched their traditional For the Love of Lipgloss 15 Piece Maracuja Lipgloss Collector’s Set for Holiday 2012. This is a fantastic gloss set because for $32 it gets you not one, not two, but three gifts in one.
It’s particularly friendly if you want individually packaged stocking stuffers or small gifts for distant beauty lover friends for around $10 bucks each or so.
Tarte packages a set of five glosses into a festive little box with a to and from ticket on the box ready for gifting with this set. Or if you’re feeling generous gift all three boxes of the glosses to your bestest friend.

You knew I’d be all over Hard Candy Skin Clarifying Concealer didn’t you? Being a concealer junkie, the two newly launched concealers from Hard Candy were high on my list of “must try dat soon”!
Hard Candy Skin Clarifying Concealer is a little confusing to me…skin clarifying mmm a reference to some sort of acne treatment in the formula? Unsure but after smelling it, it does have a Seabreeze kinda scent so it’s possible this is a concealer slash treatment.

Maybelline released Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara here in the US finally. It’s actually an old formula for Asia and I believe the UK also has it (don’t quote me on the Europe release) but just recently launched on our side of the pond.
I don’t have a ton of beef with the Colossal formula. It’s served me well but it’s also disappointed me with releases like Mega Plush which is an uneventful drugstore mascara.
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara is something I knew I wouldn’t like but I wanted to review anyway and even try for that matter. You never know, it could prove amazing right?
No such luck!
