Tarte Holiday Collection 2008

It’s too early I tell ya! It’s just too damn early to be talking about Holiday Collections now when the leaves are just about to turn color!

But…talk about it I will…..

The Tarte Holiday Collection 2008 is shaping up rather nicely with a tempting array of goodies packaged beautifully and ready for gift giving.

As all years prior you’ll be getting plenty of bang for your buck this year from Tarte and they have packed up a considerable amount of product with a small price tag!

As with all years prior they are releasing a new Tarte Cheek Trio for $25 USD. The trio contains three mini cheek stains housed in a cute gold pouch!

Loving, simply loving the Tarte Purse Your Lips Clutch! This clutch includes nine limited edition shades of lipgloss for $39 USD!

And finally you might recall the amazing hype and excitement over Tarte’s We Wish You Wealth palette. This year you can get excited about the Tarte The Vanity Palette!

You’ll get:
16 Shades of Gloss
16 Shadows
1 Mascara
4 Blushes
Makeup Brushes

The palette remains the same price as last year at $52 USD!

All in all Tarte Holiday 2008 is definitely shaping up nicely with plenty of great gift giving options for yourself or friends and family!

Lemming any of Tarte’s Holiday Collection for yourself?

Loving that extra large palette?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

  • the Muse

    hiya kimmy!

    Already available at Sephora love 😉

    go grab it while the grabbing is good 🙂

    Thanks for the comment!
    Hope to talk to you again soon!

    I love love love Tarte. I say that about a lot of companies, but Tarte cheek stain was the first cream blush I tried and one of the more “high end” products I bought.

    It was a downward spiral from there!

    I will be picking up proabbly all three of these for myself because I’m a hoarder. But I will also be gifting those cheek stains and glosses to my sisters:)

  • the Muse

    Hi Laurie!

    LOL! I’m a hoarder too and I’m feeling the need for the glosses and the palette at the very least 😉

    Thanks for sharing your Tarte wish list!

    Kayvid: Wow! Thos Lipgloss colors look really good. I am also loving their golden metallic clutches and pouches…I’m really eyeing the Cheek Stain Trio…Do you know what colors those might be?

    Kayvid: BTW I got the MAC Pearlglide eyeliner in Rave and Wolf. Love them both. Actually I’m looking forward to using them as eyeshadows more than eyeliners. But i’m really 2nd guessing myself and thinking that maybe I should’ve bought the UD VIP set…All these choices I tell you!!!

    I’m actually kind of disappointed with this year’s version of Tarte’s holiday collection. I’m usually lemming for their mini cheek stains, but from looking at the pic, the colours all look so blah. And the fact that they strayed from their signature purple and veered into gold is a real turn off – why not a shiny light purple like Guerlain’s Midnight Butterfly, or a darker purple instead? *sigh* Guess there’s always next year…

  • Asta

    I can skip the glosses (I got the summer gloss set) but I neeeeeeed the cheek stains. I’ve been waiting for a new holiday set!

  • Haru

    Hey Izzy,

    I’m so tempted to get everything! Even though my WWYW palette from last year still has tons of product left in it and I have literally dozens of Tarte lipglosses that are barely touched. Are you getting anything? If so, I’m going to wait for your reviews 🙂

  • the Muse

    morning..err afternoon hehe Kayvid!

    Happy Friday!!!!!!

    I liked the lipgloss kit the best 🙂

    I’m eyeing the stains too as well as the glosses =-P

    here’s the list for the stains hun:
    -Posh (soft plum)
    -Fierce (light strawberry red)
    -Chic (golden coral peach)


  • the Muse

    hey again kaybid 🙂

    awesome! LOL! I’d have gone for the vip set *whistles and looks to the ceiling* hehehe! They are lovely don’t get me wrong but the fact they weren’t waterline safe made me 2nd guess it 😉

    BUT Sephora FF is soon so you can indulge at a discount 🙂

  • the Muse

    hi there Anonymous!

    I miss the purple quilt style as well and I’m not all into the gold like you but I do like the looks of the lip clutch and the stains of course.

    I agree that the gold is a bit blah…but it doesn’t prevent me from def lemming a few pieces from this collection 😉

    I think it’s a need to see in person…could look better than online 😉

    ya never know!

    Thanks for the comment lovie!
    Happy Weekend!

  • the Muse

    hi asta!

    =-) the glosses I want for sure 🙂 I got the smashbox rapture glosses yesterday but I’m still lemming these too *blush*


  • the Muse

    Iris!!! Hello beautiful 🙂

    Me too lol! I’m thinking the lip clutch and the stain…the palette, like you, I have a ton of stuff in mine from last year but damn I want it anyway lol Bad 😉

    I’ll def review some of it..but much of my $ is going to Guerlain which I’m picking up tonight weee!

    If you want any of this during sephora FF let me know and I’ll snatch it up for ya!

    Love ya *hugs*

  • Haru

    Hey Izzy,

    I think I will wait for Sephora F&F, thanks for the kind offer! I'm still working on my holiday shopping list, so far it looks like just some Paul & Joe stuff. Can't wait to see what Jill Stuart and Awake will have!

  • Piece of Cake

    I’m lemming the huge Tarte palette. would owning this make me swear off of purchasing any beauty products in the future? Would this cure my addiction, Muse?

  • the Muse

    LOL piece of cake..sadly no I doubt it will 😉

    I’ve never successfully cured the addiction 🙂

    If I find a cure you’ll be the first to know darlin!
