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’ve been eyeing this set for about 2 weeks, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out what the heck is a foundation ‘balm’?? Qvc doesn’t give a description on it and I can’t help but think it’s going to be like smearing petroleum on my face? What is the consistency, and is it long wearing? It just sounds like after you put it on that it will just smear right off?

    I don’t feel like I need this…but a great eyeshadow quad in the second shipment could change my mind.

  • Maria

    This set looks very pretty. I love the mascara and lip surgence. Another item I am tempted with since I love Tarte.

  • zVintageFashionizta

    Oh, nooooo! This sounds like a great set. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Caroline

    I am so ordering this ( on easy pay ). I’m new to this line but have been liking everything so far ( less one eye shadow palette that’s just oh-Kay ). This looks very interesting! Thanks for passing on the item no.

  • devon

    i’m on a ‘may no buy’. but if your review is raving…i might have to cheat. i am always easily influenced by tarte! o_O

  • Vanessa C

    I’m very interested about the balm! Tarte and QVC always draw me in, but I hesitate on purchasing. LOL

  • Zoey

    Do you have any spoilers about what the next set will look like for auto delivery?

  • Bren

    Oh my goodness! I just got it and this smoothing foundation is incredible and so, SO gorgeous! My skin texture is perfection with this on. I like Am Clay 12-hour but this is seamless and smoother than that. It’s not heavy at all like I find IT CC+ can be. It dries down instantly to a beautiful finish and is totally touchable. It feels like nothing but smoothness. I am going back for another! Worth getting duplicate lip and eye for the foundation and mascara for me! Love you girl! 🙂

    I can never resist a Tarte TSV since it’s such a great value. Although, the second shipment of the holiday tsv is suppose to ship in May — so do I really need this one?!

  • Penny

    Add me to the list of people who don’t really need this kit, but will end up getting it anyway! LOL! Love Tarte! Love QVC! Love Easy Pay! 🙂

  • Maria

    I ordered the set and it was shipped today via US post office and not UPS. I am surprised since all my other QVC kits were shipped via UPS. I wonder if any one else who ordered this kit also has it shipped via US mail.

    I cannot recommend this enough! This balm foundation is the best thing I have ever put on my face! I thought it would be an oily mess but it buffs on so smooth with the included brush and dries to a gorgeous soft matte. I have found my new favorite foundation! Will you be doing a review on this? I am curious as to what you think.

    Need another brown eye shadow like a hole in the head. 🙁

  • zVintageFashionizta

    The balm left me with a very dewy look, not my preference but its ok on days when my skin is a little too dry. The balm is sheer so if you have any imperfections that you would like to conceal this is definitely not for you. Unfortunately the color I chose was too dark on me and made my skin look dirty, I am definitely returning it but I’m still not sure if I should exchange it for the lighter color.

    I have not tested the eyeshadow quad and keep searching for swatches but have not found any, do any of you know what blogger reviewed this set?
