Got $10? Want to tell you about how can you spend it on the Tarte Bright By Night Skincare Discovery Set?

I burn the candle at both ends every day. I work a full time regular job daily, five days a week and I moonlight on Musings, for far too many hours, five days a week. Life is about to get even busier or actually already is because I’m about to enter into renewal season here and things get mighty crazy when everyone and their mama is popping into my office demanding cheap, cheap, cheap premiums. I call my clients my baby chicks because they sound like them, “cheap cheap cheap!” Sigh, anyway, based on their losses for the year they are going to be very happy with me or VERY upset because even though they are responsible for what goes on behind the wheel of their own car I am generally the person that gets blamed when their insurance premiums sky rocket. Taxi drivers, limo chauffeurs, and corporate managers are NOT the friendliest people in the world when you’re asking them for more money.

Needless to say I never get a lot of sleep during the year but when renewal season hits, well, I really get zero sleep until it is over because it is a lot of running around, a lot of networking and social interaction, and suddenly I’m everyone’s broker, therapist, and general go to for everything and anything that needs getting done before March 1st.

Concealer is my bestest friend right now. But…I also have to contend with some nasty weather lately. Lots of snow, really low, cold, freezing temperatures, and dry skin!

Issues with dry under eyes? You NEED the Tarte Bright By Night Skincare Discovery Set. It’s the perfect little companion set to pack up with your concealer to insure that you get the best, smoothest finish under your eyes.

Take a peek!

Tarte Bright By Night Skincare Discovery Set

The Tarte Bright By Night Skincare Discovery Set is a $10 mini set that launches at Sephora exclusively shortly. $10 bucks, that’s it.

Granted it’s a nice way to discovery Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil and Tarte’s newest Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment and of course, to treat not only your eyes but also your face to some much needed moisture.

BUT being a Tarte fan I bet you’ve already tried and likely already use both of these items daily! Tarte’s 100% Pure Organic Maracuja Oil is an undiluted moisturizing maracuja oil that adds super hydration to skin and is an excellent source of essential fatty acids that promo healthy skin cells. It can be used all over your body and most importantly on drier skin on your face! Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment is a fast absorbing eye cream that combats dryness and contains rice bran, mango, and coconut, which are naturally rich in antioxidants and help fight signs of aging and free radical damage.

I actually own both of these already in their bigger sizes BUT…now the good part, the Bright by Night Set came into my life and for ten bucks I thought wow, well, here’s a set I can really use.

This includes a 0.23 oz eye cream and a 0.088 oz oil. That’s tiny I know but 1. It’s a great way to try both without committing to large sizes or 2. in my case, I pack both of them together with my concealer and prep with them!

As I mentioned above my eyes are looking tired in the AM and I’m suffering from some major dryness which is even noticeable in my photos lately. These two products are perfect companion pieces to getting my eyes nice and moist and prepped for concealer. A small amount of the Maracuja Oil can be applied directly under my eyes prior to any other makeup and followed up with the eye cream to set a moist, hydrated canvas for my concealer. Believe me, you’ll thank me for this advice! Keep them both by your concealer and in the AM when it’s time to apply you’ll love how easily it glides on!

Whether it’s your first time trying this products or you’re just in need of some tools for your drier eyes or maybe some travel sizes of your fav Tarte Skincare products this $10 set can’t be beat.

Loves it!

Available shortly, exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com.

Have you used either the oil or eye cream? What are your thoughts on them?

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.

    Ohhh thanks for the info! I’ve been wanting to try Maracuja oil for ages but never wanted to spend full price for it. Love that you can get this and the eye cream for 10 bucks!!

  • jocelyn

    I got the oil in another little $10 kit back in Oct/Nov (?). I use it nearly daily & am just getting to the end. I’m not ready to splurge on the full size one yet though, much as I love it. I want to see how it works in warmer weather, being an oil. This little kit is great though. I can’t wait to try the eye cream now! Thanks!

    Oh Muse, once again you are a lifesaver! I don’t have dark circles but like you, the dry skin….oh, the dry skin. Especially under my eyes. It seems no matter what I use, by the time I get to applying concealer the skin under my eyes has sucked up all moisture and returned to being like a desert. I never thought to combine an oil and a cream like this. Duh! It makes so much sense, why didn’t I think of it already? This is going on my list right now. If it works for the Muse, it’s good enough for me! Thank you, thank you, for this post.

      Hey Deb, I actually apply all my skincare in the morning including my regular eye cream…I head to the bathroom and prior to concealer I apply a drop of the oil and some of the eye cream again and it’s perfect, TONS of hydrating goodness 😀 It should work great for you! My eyes are HORRIBLE lately. Lack of sleep and cold weather has really puffed them up and fine lines are really noticeable and hey for ten bucks you can’t really beat the price right? my pleasure good luck 🙂

  • fancie

    I’ve been itching to try both of these so I’ll definitely be hauling this soon!

  • LT

    I already use the maracuja oil and loved it, but I can’t wait to try the eye cream. I’m located in the north east as well, and with these temperatures being zero and below, in the mornings my eyelids are dry and flaky (despite having very oily skin), and mama can’t have that!

  • amy

    This sounds great! I currently use the oil under my eyes, but I’m curious about the eye cream. I will do my best to grab this!
