Once upon a time, the makeup fairies of the Tarte kingdom waved their magic wands and created the sparkliest, most magical beauty collection of all time, and it was a fairytale dream come true!
My glittery pink heart skipped a beat as soon as I set eyes on the new limited edition Love, Trust & Fairy Dust collection from Tarte. Curated with magical wishes and sprinkled with heaps of stardust, the fairy themed range is a true work of art. It’s ideal for those that like to indulge in beautiful, unique, keepsake packaging, but also has those wearable and versatile shades that you might not be able to find amongst other popular mystical themes, like unicorns and mermaids. It’s totally dreamy and feminine, and perfect for the girly day dreamer!
Whilst you can buy all of the products individually, I got a little over-excited and decided to purchase the full Love, Trust & Fairy Dust Vault, which I 100% don’t regret. The products come in the most gorgeous, sparkly box I’ve ever seen, with pretty rose gold outer casing, and a glittering window filled with pink and purple holographic stars, that swish about when you lift the lid. It’s utterly magical, I’m definitely going to treasure it and keep it to store other things. Tucked inside is a beautiful selection of fairy themed beauty products, and upon opening it I was just in total awe of the whole vault, and I went into full on starry eyed mode!
The Love, Trust & Fairy Dust Eye & Cheek Palette has gorgeous rose gold packaging, bursting with a lid full of glittery purple stars. Inside consists of ten eyeshadows and a highlight in the centre, which of course can double as an eyeshadow too. The neutral tones in the palette are full of the loveliest rosy hues, which are perfect for everyday use. The pigmentation in this palette had me fully shocked. Sometimes with limited edition palettes, I’ve found that the eyeshadow quality can differ a little from the high standard of the permanent products (speaking from experience with other brands as I have not tried Tarte before). Every single shade in this palette is buttery smooth with excellent pigmentation, and there is not a single dud shade in terms of quality! My favourite shades are the mauve toned Whimiscal and Giggle, the pinky metallic Flitter and the shimmering rose bronze Magic.
My favourite item from the whole range has to be the charming Fairy Lights, Camera, Lashes, which looks like it must’ve been made with pure fairy dust. It’s their best selling mascara dressed in the prettiest, glittery pink packaging, complete with a cute little ribbon star charm. It looks like a little fairy wand and I’m obsessed! The actual mascara is one that I’ve heard lots of great things about, it’s said to curl and separate lashes for a naturally defined, voluminous look, so I’m super pleased I get to try it out in this extra special packaging.
Also in the collection is the Amazonian Clay Blush in Fairy Flush, which has sleek rose gold casing and a glimmering starry lid, full of rose gold and holographic twinkly stars. The blush itself is a gorgeous subtle nude shade which gives a lovely soft flush to the cheeks.
A fun addition to the range is the Fairy Dust Glitter; a beautiful confetti adorned sachet full of iridescent glitter pieces. Perfect for creative makeup looks, parties, festivals and fancy dress! I’d recommend layering it over a gel or cream product to get the glitter to stick.
Created for conjuring up some magical makeup is the Pretty Things & Fairy Wings Brush Set. Consisting of five super cute and totally unique makeup brushes, in a soft princessy pink, a periwinkle purple and a hot Barbie pink, all complete with whimsical starred tips. The brushes themselves are so lovely and soft, and feel really high quality.
