The Tarte for True Blood Collection is a must have for any True Blood fan. It’s always fun at any age to dress up to some of your favorite TV Characters. I’m excited that Tarte offered this collection to give an opportunity to experiment with the looks as well as give me an excuse to try out the brand!

If you only get one thing, definitely go for the Palette. At only $52 you’re getting 17 eye shadows, a mini primer, mascara, and eye liner. There is a shade and look for everyone in this palette. From neutral to vamp, you’re going to have something for every occasion. The shades are soft and easy to use. They blend SO well.
The only part of this palette that I thought was awful was the liner. At first I thought I’d love it. It went on well, and though it felt wet, it dried quickly and was a really deep black. However, my eyes reacted to it like I’ve never had before. My worst reaction to date was with the MAC Pearlglide Intense liners. The Tarte liner actually gave me a worse reaction. I recommend you trying it out before you do your actual look or makeup for the day, just in case you have a similar experience.
The Lip Tint and Cheek Tint were both great. The Lip Tint starts off a little raspberry, but then deepens to an almost red shade. The Cheek Tint isn’t as dark or hard to work with as you’d imagine. As my first experience with a cheek stain, I was really quite impressed with the ease of use. The Lip Tint has a $24 retail, and the Cheek Tint will run you $30.
Did you pick up anything from this collection, or do you plan to? It’s all Limited Edition, so don’t think too long 😉
