YOU NEED THIS: Sephora Tarina Tarantino Fashion Collection

Oh stop it now! The gorgeous Tarina Tarantino Cosmetic Collection has just started peeking it’s beautiful head out at Sephora and finally things are starting to show in stock and what happens next? Tarina introduces a brand new selection of goodies.


You need these!


The Tarina Tarantino Fashion Collection channels Gothic style, 1970’s punk rock and a little Victorian flair with hand-printed neon compacts that will absolutely have you dropping to your knees in thanks to the makeup gods above.

Can I hear an Alleluia!

But enough enlightenment from this Muse, check out Tarina’s creations below!


  • Tokyo Hardcore Lip Gloss ($19)
  • Tokyo Hardcore Eye Dream Hypershadow ($19)
  • Tarina Tarantino Tokyo Hardcore Lip Gloss ($35)

…”during Tarina’s first trip to Japan, she relished the futuristic culture of cuteness. This collection showcases high-tech Tokyo style, including hot, neon hues. Entirely inspired by the Tokyo skyline!”


  • Tarina Tarantino Victorian Punk Lip Gloss Ring ($35)
  • Tarina Tarantino Victorian Punk Eye Dream Hypershadow ($19)
  • Tarina Tarantino Victorian Punk Lip Gloss ($19)

“….channeling Gothic style and 1970s punk rock, Victorian Punk references turn-of-the-century haberdashery and dress. This ensemble features hand-printed scrimshaw skull cameos surrounded by Swarovski crystal and layered with charms and pears. Rich shades of red, black, and purple combine to create a story of romance and gothic fantasy. Inspired by Victorian Punk style.”


  • Tarina Tarantino Candy Cameo Lip Gloss Ring ($35)
  • Tarina Tarantino Candy Cameo Eye Dream Hypershadow ($19)
  • Tarina Tarantino Candy Cameo Lip Gloss ($19)

…inspired by a fantastical-yet-nostalgic vintage vibe. Taking a colorful inspiration from her grandmother’s vintage jewelry box, Tarina designed Candy Cameo around neon-colored cameos with glossy hearts and bows, accented with black lacquer beads. This collection is playful, with vibrant colors mixing harmoniously.


  • Tarina Tarantino Electric Butterfly Lip Gloss Ring ($35)
  • Tarina Tarantino Electric Butterfly Eye Dream Hypershadow ($19)
  • Tarina Tarantino Electric Butterfly Lip Gloss ($19)

“….inspired by vibrant butterfly wings. This ensemble evokes an electrifying journeyβ€”the psychedelic metamorphosis of Electric Butterfly. While designing this collection, Tarina took cues from acid-bright 1960’s op-art posters and Art Nouveau illustrations from the early 1900’s. The art from these eras, with their highly stylized images and curvilinear shapes, reference the patterns in butterflies’ wings. A signature Tarina finishing touch: vibrant colored crystal accents.”


  • Bibarucci Lip Gloss Ring ($35)
  • Bibarucci Eye Dream Hypershadow ($19)
  • Bibarucci Lip Gloss ($19)

“…this ensemble pays homage to Barbara Hulanicki of Biba and Elio Fiorucci. Fiorucci was known for his sexy, playful designs that were a fashion “must” during the era of Studio 54 and Disco. Barbara Hulanicki created a world of pure 1960’s rock ‘n’ roll decadence, with black and gold, leopard prints, and Egyptian accents. inspired by two of Tarina’s favorite fashion icons: Barbara Hulanicki of Biba and Elio Fiorucci.”

The Muse will beg, borrow, steal, and sell away her soul for some of these items. I’m duly impressed and might I add the Tarina Tarantino Makeup Collection is turning out even better than the Kat Von D Makeup Collection. I’m absolutely floored that after introducing an entire line up of cosmetics that they are already on to introducing limited edition products, this, for me, speaks well of the brand.

The elements of macabre versus punk goth thrills me so yes I’ll be hauling it hard! The Muse thinks you needs it and she sure as hell needs it too.

The Tarina Tarantino Fashion Collection will be available shortly from Sephora.

I know I can’t wait.

Will you haul it?

What do you think of this collection?

Do share!

Drooling of any kind is welcome.

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.

    That packaging is so cute—I don’t know which one I’d pick! I’d have to see some kind of swatches before buying though.

  • christy

    I bought one of the eyeshadow in booch! It was the last one on the shelf! Packaging is pretty and the shadows are pigmented!

  • Melissa

    I love the electric butterfly but how is the product quality. Some of the Sephora reviews are less than nice.

    • the Muse

      hey melissa have yet to haul any of the TT line as of yet for myself! But will shortly πŸ˜€ and review so we can see how fab or not so fab it is πŸ™‚

  • Robyn

    i would move to america just so i had a sephora in which to buy this i wasnt thrilled buy the first TT stuff but this i wants so bad

  • Phyrra

    I think the packaging is beautiful, but the other reviews and swatches I’ve seen of the products makes me think that they’re average quality at best.

  • Marina

    I love them all!!! I’m definitely a fan of TT’s Tokyo Hardcore collection, so this makeup is really cool. All the shadows appeal to me, but I think the TH shadow looks a little like Rated R by NARS, which I own…Oh well. I need to haul SOMETHING from Tarina.

    • the Muse

      me too marina πŸ˜€ I love it all! please can I win the lotto!? πŸ˜€

  • MaryJane

    I’VE GOT TO HAVE THAT PINK LIPGLOSS RING!! Lip gloss rings always have the best lip gloss.


  • sky

    As an adult, this does nothing for me. I mean, uhm, a gloss ring? Yeah.

    I am sexy and fierce…a gloss ring is not that.

    No thanks. Time to grow up.

    • the Muse

      hi sky as an adult I love it! πŸ˜€ if I have to grow up and become too serious might as well take my smile away πŸ˜‰

      Have a little fun, it won’t hurt ya! Dunno if I’d buy the gloss ring but I still find some of the joy in the products, they are cute and very TT by design πŸ™‚

  • Janice

    As an adult, this really appeals to me! I’m really loving the Electric Butterfly and Tokyo Hardcore – for the packaging alone. But $35 for a lipgloss ring? Really? I’m not nuts about the colors (I am admittedly fear wearing anything other than neutrals), but the packaging alone is too cute to refuse.

    • the Muse

      me too janice! πŸ˜€ the colors are def outrageous and not so hot on that ring for $35 ouchie but all else looks really sweets πŸ˜€

  • SilhouetteScreams

    I’m obsessed with the packaging on these, but the reviews for actual products so far aren’t great =/ I wish I could just buy the empty packaging LOL

    • the Muse

      silhouette I keep hearing the same but still wanting to try for myself πŸ˜€

  • Su

    I like the design but I wouldn’t buy it because the feel colors are not that vivid… I will only buy for packaging if i have money to burn lol
