tarte Glow Your Way To Gorgeous 8 Piece Maracuja & Clay Collection QVC Today’s Special Value


Everyone having an ok Monday? I’m nuts but otherwise brilliant. I’m happy to be home and getting back into the groove of things.

Remember that surprise post that I was telling you about?

Well, you probably know about it already!

It’s the tarte Glow Your Way To Gorgeous 8 Piece Maracuja & Clay Collection available exclusively on QVC as a Today’s Special Value this weekend!

Let’s take a peek!

I’ve been playing with the collection for the better part of three weeks and loves it hard! It’s a great little set and includes a very exciting release from Tarte, their new Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. You know how crazy I get for concealer right?

This set includes eight full sizes products from Tarte and is $49.92. You can order it already by using item number A218483 at www.qvc.com

The set includes:

  • Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer (Worldwide Launch)
  • Tarte SmolderEYES waterproof eyeliner Fig (plum brown)
  • Tarte Lip Luster in Sweet (soft pink)
  • Tarte Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot in Shimmering Taupe
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in Black
  • Tarte 12 Hour Wear Clay Blush in Peaceful (soft rose)
  • Tarte Deluxe Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
  • Tarte Pure Marcuja Oil Deluxe Sample
  • Tarte Shadow Brush
  • Tarte Blush Brush
  • Tarte Sharpener
  • Tarte Makeup Bag

Actually counting it you get alot more than 8 pieces here! The set is valued at $205 which is about right as you’re getting all full size products.

Of course, if you want to indulge in auto delivery you can! Item number A219234 will set you up for future shipments of this set at the same low price but with new seasonal shades!

It’s a great little deal and after trying it I have to say YOU need it!

Review and swatches are upcoming!

Happy haulin’!

    Ugh SUCH a good deal but I just bought so much stuff this weekend that I can’t do it :(. I loooove the blush too wah!

      • Tammie

        Ok, you’re right…so you’re going to buy it for me then right? xD

        Juuuuust kidding 😉 I would totally buy it but I just can’t right now sadly. I am not using a credit card again until I get mine paid off and I just can’t spend $50 right now even though it’s a great deal 🙁 Also I wouldn’t use every single item in the set which makes it hard to justify even though the blush alone would be $25 or whatever.

        Here are all the things I can’t see myself using:

        Tarte SmolderEYES waterproof eyeliner Fig (plum brown)
        Tarte Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot in Shimmering Taupe
        Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in Black
        Tarte Deluxe Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
        Tarte Pure Marcuja Oil Deluxe Sample

        • the Muse

          haha tammie I wish I could buy one for each of you! ;-D awww so perhaps this one you should def skip as that’s alot of what the set is made up of! I’m sure the concealer will be sold on its own at some point if you want to indulge ;D!

          • Tammie

            Yeah, I may get the concealer later if it’s sold on it’s own.

            Honestly what makes me sad about these sets is the LE blushes that only come with the sets…I love them SO much and I’d buy them separately but no T_T

          • the Muse

            aw tammie! ;( Tarte listens, maybe at some point they’ll offer them *wink*

  • Penny

    How does the concealer run compared to the foundation in the last TSV from tarte? Some say get a shade darker, some say don’t. I am always the fair option ….

  • Penny

    Thanks muse! Mine shipped yesterday (well probably today) and I am hoping I got the best shade of concealer for myself. Can’t wait to see your swatches and reviews! I got a-d on this one, 8th wonder too … that 2nd kit came last week and I am loving that green eye liner in that one!

    • the Muse

      My pleasure Penny! Yay glad you got this! It’s a fab set. The ad on both sets is well worth the price. These are such a super value ;-D Enjoy, wear in health hun!

  • Dana

    I thought your surprise post was the Laura Geller TSV they had while you were away. I looked nice. Now this looks really nice though because I’ve really heard nothing but rave reviews for most of Tartes Amazonian Clay collection. Thanks for the heads up.:)!

    I love the easy pay too. While you were gone they had two days of most of their site being 5 easy pay. So I bought a Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner and a fragrance for 5 easy pays of about $5 each. You just have to remember they all add up and you could be paying about $60 a month in easy pays!! : P

    • the Muse

      hey D! Noooo but I seen that and wondered, hm do I need? Was disappointed as I really don’t need more balance and brighten with two auto deliveries of it on other Laura stuff eep! ;-D my pleasure! aw man I missed that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL exactly my problem at the moment have AD’s for Tarte, Laura Geller, bobbi brown, and be! I’m in ad hell!

  • Colleen

    HI Muse. Could you mention in your review how the blush color compares to the Glisten blush from the last TSV? In photos, they look the same & that’s why i have hesitated to get this kit. Thank so much!

  • Kris

    I am soooo excited to try the eyeshadow in this kit! And more to come on auto-delivery too! Though….with all my Tarte and Laura Geller autodelivery sets, I think I may have to rent a storage unit to store all my blush! LOL

    • the Muse

      same here kris…I’m in AD crazy at the moment…my tarte just arrived and my LG and my BE…all in the same day! ;D!

  • Maria

    Will you have the colors for the other AD shipments just like you had for the March TSV? That was so helpful along with the great review you did on that TSV. Thanks,

    • the Muse

      I’m def trying to get that info for you Maria ;-D Hope I can get it soon for you my dear girl!

      • Maria

        Thanks!! I pre-ordered this set and should be getting it tomorrow but I am a bit concerned with the shade. I got the March TSV and got it in Medium but also got a second foundation in Tan. I think both look pretty good on me, tan being a good match for summer. I was Ok with the medium shade I chose for this TSV, especially after watching a video posted by Tarte. The tan looked so dark. But now I am seeing people a lot lighter than me getting the medium as well. I am of light olive skin complexion. If either Medium or Tan of the latest foundation works for me, do you think the medium concealer will work as well? Thanks again

        • the Muse

          hi maria will be doing swatches of all the concealers shortly ;-D

  • Reme

    This set looks great, brilliant value too, I’m putting Tarte down on my ‘must check out when in US’ beauty list as I type!!

  • Lulee

    UGH why am i getting sucked into this… i Know i will be disappointed… I have forayed into Tarte a few times and it’s been nonstop underwhelming city for me. but the deal is so good… and I’ve heard such good things about the blushes… and that chubby lip pencil thing looks pretty… and that cream shadow looks ultra flattering…
    nonononono! get it together woman, you must resist!!!

    Hi muse! welcome back! hope you had a great time on your hols! i missed your daily updates but glad you’re back!

    • the Muse

      aw shucks thanks lulee! good to be home girl and I missed ya back!

      aw which tarte products failed for you hun? Honestly the shadow, blush, and lip pencil are amazings imho! ;-D

  • diane

    Hi! I just discovered your blog recently & it is AWESOME!!! I’m a fellow make-up & QVC obsessed New Yorker..I just got my glow your way gorgeous set in the mail today and I agree with you 100% PEOPLE NEED THIS SET!! Everything in it is beyond incredible- the colors are beautiful & the concealer even covered a bruise on my arm! Tarte never disappointed and this time they went above & beyond! =)

    • the Muse

      hi diane! *waves* good to meet you! that’s fabuloussssssss! so happy to hear how much you are loving this girl!

  • frecklesspeckles

    item cannot be found anymore… does that mean it’s sold out?

  • whitesaltwatertaffy

    do you have info on the upcoming sets for auto-delivery? i got mine today as well and am so loving it. and i enjoy reading your reviews, btw, so informative and helpful 🙂

    • the Muse

      not yet miss saltwatertaffy ;-D but hopefully soon! Aw thank you! ;-D

  • christina

    Do you know approximately when you might post the swatches. I wanna make sure I see it 🙂 thanks for your hard work and i greatly appreciate your honest reviews ! I’m super excited to try this kit…

    • the Muse

      hey christina def today not sure on time yet though hun ;-D promise shortly though! aw thanks! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo!

  • Bridget

    Missed your posts,hope you had a wonderful trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was going through muse blog withdraws. Im super excited to get this kit, i ordered it right away when i saw today here. I loved the last Tarte kit from qvc so im positive this ones going to be just as good. One little question; you said in the list of all the products that there is a bronzer but I didnt see one in the pics? Is it an extra like the oil or is it a miss print or am I just not seeing it? Glad youre back!!!!! Thanks! : )

    • the Muse

      aw thanks bridget so great to be back it was amazing! I missed all of YOU so much! ;-D My kit had a mini deluxe sample of the bronzer 😀 I’m trying the confirm if this is a sure thing….it also has a mini deluxe maracuja oil…so these are kinda mini extras included. I’m trying to get full confirmation that it is in th ekit ;-D It’s a small powder bronzer ;-D Hugs!

  • Tish

    I hope the bronzer in this set is matte. I have the shimmery one and while it’s pretty, I prefer my bronzers to be matte (I use them for contouring).

    By the way, I just ordered mine today and although it will be arriving soon at the US address I shipped it to, it’s going to take 4-6weeks for this set to get to me here in the Philippines! Waiting time sucks, big time.

    Glad to see you back, by the way. I’m a long time stalker (not in a creepy way) 😉

    • the Muse

      tish it is indeed matte…little ickle golden flecks but matte all over. yay so glad you got it ;-D when will you be home to try it?! Aw shucks thanks for stalking me ;-D I’m so happy to be back! Phew! I missed you guys!

      • Tish

        I’ll be there at the end of the year so I’m having the set shipped to the Philippines as soon as it reaches my US address. That’s going to be 2months worth of wait. *sigh* But I’m beyond excited to get it. I missed the last 8th world wonder set and I hope I don’t miss the next and I believe last one. That last set has got to be mine. Neutrals girl here.

        I missed your posts when you were away.

        I’ll be stalking you even more for your review on the items in the set. I can’t wait!!!

        • Tish

          Just curious though, how come the bronzer is not pictured?

          I first saw this set in julieg73’s video on YouTube where she mentioned an inclusion of a bronzer (didn’t swatch it though); however, when I checked qvc.com, the bronzer is not included in the picture nor in the description box where the items in the set are listed. I really hope it comes with a bronzer. I so want to try their matte bronzer even though I’m very much in love and satisfied with my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzing Powder.

          • the Muse

            I’m not sure Tish perhaps b/c it’s a deluxe sample tish and not an actual product. Hope this helps!

          • Becky

            On Tarte’s facebook they have been discussing this.. everyone *will* get those two deluxe samples. They are not part of the description because you won’t receive them on future auto-delivery sets.

        • the Muse

          tish ;-D you’ll have your second shipment if you did the AD ;-D! by that time hehehe! Neutral girl too ^5! ;-D Aw I missed all of you guys SO MUCH! ;-D Let me know what you think of the review, just posted!

  • Musebeliever

    I want this brand to be available in Europe. NOW !
    This looks amazing !


  • JenJ

    I saw this in the Insider. Not sure *covers eyes*. Good deal as always with QVC TSVs.

    Welcome back!!!

  • Regina

    I was on a beauty ban for the month but thanks to this post I may have to cave!!!

  • S

    What a great set! I’ve never tried Tarte but hear good things about it. I know your swatches & reviews are coming, but is the blush matte or sparkly? I can do a little glow, but don’t like glitter etc. Thanks Muse, and glad you’re back! I missed ya!

    • the Muse

      hey s ;-D it’s a nice deal! matte S 🙂 no glittery bits! I’m glad to be back, missed you too!

      • S

        Thanks, Muse! And like others mentioned I’m curious about the bronzer and maracuja oil sample being included as they’re not listed on the Q description.

        • the Muse

          ok S ;-D indeed you do get both ;-D the bronzer is retailed at $10 and the sample of the oil is not retailed…hope this helps, it’s 7ml in size with a tiny dropper for application!

  • carol

    I don’t see where it includes the bronzer on the website. 😛

  • Majick

    I MISSED YOU SO! – 😉
    Glad you’re back. I’m not sure if I can wait for the swatches as I MUST have this kit. I just got my 2nd AD of the 8th wonder and OMG it was better than the first. Well, maybe except for the liner in the first one – that plum color really made my hazel/brown eyes look really green (love that). Maybe the plum chubby pencil in this one will do the same. Oh wait, I really liked the blush in the first one too – but…
    HA HA (shiz – it’s all good)
    I ended up getting a Medium foundation instead of the tan. I haven’t even been to the beach for a serious day yet. My DH told me that the medium was actually a little darker than my skin anyway. I thought it was a great match but he’s the art major. LOL
    Ok, i’m off too order. THANKS MUSE!

    • the Muse

      aw shucks thanks majick missed ya back girl! How’s your SUmmer treating you? I LOVE the blush in the first WW set ;-D glisten rocks ;D! ha wish I had my own art major to match my foundation tone hehehe!


      • Majick

        Yeah, an art major who specializes in carpentry, masonry, and cooking! Did I mention gardening, and building ponds? We may not be rich with moola but my life is pretty sweet. IT’s all what you make it.
        We did have a scare – while you were away, I was away too. DH had robotic surgery to remove a cyst on his kidney. We were in Philly at the University of Penn Hospital. What an amazing thing robotics are. It’s only been 2 weeks since his surgery and he informed me this morning that when we go to the beach on Thursday he’s taking the kayak out. wow… men…LOL

        • the Muse

          aw majick ;-D that’s damn awesome! omg….that sounds scary as hell!!! Ha…they bounce right back I’d still be whining from bread…water, I need water…and bon bons….LOL

  • Becky

    Oops, meant to reply to Tish. lol

    I pre-ordered and mine will be here soon! Can’t wait!

    • Tish

      Thanks, Becky. I was actually about to post a response since I just got it figured out. I watched Maureen Kelly’s video on this set and she did say that the bronzer and the maracuja oil are both deluxe samples. Sadly, the bronzer is the same one that’s included in the Tarte Jewelry Box from their Holiday 2010 collection which I already have. *sigh* Nevertheless, I’m happy to be getting two deluxe samples. I’m just now torn which concealer shade to get since there aren’t too many swatches of all concealer shades yet.

  • Lisa

    Love love your blog. Been reading for a few years now. And I love Tarte. I’ve really been buying a lot of it and all the QVC specials. I already ordered this one and can’t wait to get it, and to read your review. The mascara is fantastic for me and curls and darkens and separates almost better than anything. And it’s good for you too! what more can one ask for? I also bought the Ulta set of brown and grey chubby liners and they are great. The brown is my favorite. Even with brown eyes, it stands out. Thanks for letting us express our joy for the products!

    • the Muse

      hey lisa aw thank YOU so much! I am always so happy to let my inner beauty junkie run wild on here thanks to awesome readers like you who enjoy products as much as I do ;D!

  • jenn s.

    Bought it, got it, looooovvvvvveeee it! I’m a huge Maracuja oil fan! My skin drinks it in and I get all glowy and healthy looking. 🙂

  • stephanie

    can somebody please tell me which concealer shade would work best for a MAC nc25-30? light or medium? muse, help pretty please?

    • the Muse

      stephanie I’m not really sure having never seen you before hun but I’d go with medium as fair and light are really best suited to super fair, porcelain skin. if you have warmer undertones, medium is the best bet!

  • Erin

    Do you have any decent pictures of the upcoming shipments of the Tarte Glow your way 8 piece collection? I have seen a few pictures on the QVC website, but I find that your pictures are way better (especially of the Wonders of the World collection, where i can click on picture and blow it up to see a nice, non-grainy photo).

    Thank you!

    • the Muse

      hi erin check my tarte archives, there is photos of the next shipments in a few prior posts I did, hope this helps!

  • Karen

    I only want the Maracuja concealer 🙁 Do you think tarte will release it separately? Possibly at Sephora? It sucks to be living in Canada sometimes.
