You NEED this: Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot with Brush

Obviously I get a little confuddled at times as I thought the Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pots were a new product….

But they aren’t.

However, maybe you’re not on the up and up either because hello, wow, you’re so bloody brilliant I need you in my make up life is running through my head after seeing the promo images!


These pigmented cream shadows too gorgeous! Tarte promises a pigmented, rich cream shadow that contains micronized Amazonian Clay which intensifies color pigments while working to nourish skin, reduce surface oil, and improve overall texture for smooth application. Thanks to a botanical blend of natural plant waxes, the shadow glides on smooth and forms an impermeable layer that protects against sweat, tears, and creasing for hours of wear time aka super long wearing good times for Summer.

The formula is free of parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, or phthalates as well.

The shadows are exclusive to QVC and each comes with a brush for application for $22 bucks!

Shades Available:

  • Beach Bronze
  • Moss
  • Slate
  • Seashell Pink
  • Shimmering Plum

For the record, all of them are on my wish list but damn that Seashell Pink is screaming my name!

Loves it!

Whatcha think?

Available now at

P.S. Don’t forget to Tivo Maureen’s presentations on QVC (there will be some lovely exclusives available you won’t want to miss).

Showings starting Friday at 1AM, 3PM, and 7PM EST.

Happy Days!

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.

    i need these ๐Ÿ™ it’s a shame they’re only on the Q though…i hate paying S&H, and returns are nowhere near as easy at Sephora. Maybe there will be a good deal on them when Maureen is on though, that may push me over the edge *crosses fingers*

  • Josh :D

    I so have the tivo set! I’m dying for the slate one! <3

  • Kris

    I’ve recently fallen in love with Tarte products and have been wanting these. I am an avid QVC fan as well and really hope they offer a set of these instead of individuals. Maybe a one time only value?

    P.S. I’m new to your blog and love it! Keep up the good work! Have you been to the QVC Beauty Bash? For the last three years I’ve traveled all the way from San Diego to go. I can’t get enough of QVC beauty products. And Maureen from Tarte is absolutely gorgeous, kind, and genuine in person. LOVE her!

      hey kris couldn’t agree more a trio would be lovely…even a smaller size pot in a set of 3 or 5 would rock it! Aw thanks so much! xoxoxo! I have not…I was invited recently for a press even but just didn’t have the time to actually go! I’m so jealous, it must be really fun ;D! On my bucket list hehe!

  • Amy

    They look so pretty… I’m thinking I might haul these after I see swatches, because they look so shiny and lovely and gorgeous. I hope these work out as beautifully as they look.

    Sadly I grabbed them all when they were $3 off every additional item + free shipping but sent them back. ๐Ÿ™ They did not do anything for my slimy eye lids – color was totally gone in couple hours no matter how much I slathered with the brush. And for some reason it was this pale color wash – did not build up. But again, that’s just me and my weird chemistry – had to be because the reviews are really good on this.
    Just sharing my experience.

    • the Muse

      hey makedonka…oh noes your killing my lemmings girl! damn! My lids aren’t oily so crossing fingers and toes they might work better for me ;D!

      • Makedonka

        ๐Ÿ™‚ Colors are gorg – I was debating keeping the pots just to look at them … LOL
        Looking forward to the Tarte shows on Saturday – thanks for the heads up!

        • the Muse

          girl keep them as a base…a little powder on top I bet you can work it ;-D!

          • Makedonka

            Ah you, enabler you! ๐Ÿ™‚ The pink is new color and I think the plum too (there were 4 “original” ones that I returned) so I might give it another try – the thing is aside from BB nothing else works good for my eye lids. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • the Muse

            have you tried urban decay deslick in a tube on your lids? My sis does that ;-D she’s as oily as hell on her lids and this helps mattify :D!

  • Josie

    I just checked their site and yes they ship to Canada but not cosmetics! Crazy! I guess i’ll have to have it shipped to my cousin in NY!

    How come there is 6 pictured but only 5 names? Do you know the name of the one niext to the pink? I NEED that one bad!

    • the Muse

      really Josie?! ๐Ÿ™ I thought someone said they did ship! Sorry honey! But at least you have fams in NY ;D! Mmmmmmmmmmm sorry…you’re right lol! I have to see if I confirm the name on this! hold that thought ;D!

  • Josie

    Yeah they do ship to Canada but in the fine print is says no cosmetics. That sucks! I got all excited until i read the fine print! :p I think that shade is the Slate one. It looks like a lilac/taupey/gunmetal shade, almost like Benefit’s Skinny Jeans minus the green/gold tint.

    • the Muse

      damn them Josie! grrr! I think so too but there appears to be another plum shade that isn’t pictures…trying to confirm now grrr!

  • Majick

    DAM YOU MUSE! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (you know I meant that in a good way right?) LOL
