Ariel, we’re about to be part of your world! With summer just around the corner, Tarte’s limited edition mermaid-inspired makeup collection is a shore thing for beauty lovers. Accented with shimmery shades and iridescent packaging, the collection looks like it was plucked right out of the ocean.
Ever since we saw Tarte’s teaser back in November, we’ve been obsessing over this gorgeous collection. Now it’s finally time to get our hands on this treasure. Let’s start with the seashell-shaped eyeshadow palette that’s magical on the inside and out. The 14 matte and metallic shades come in glimmering neutrals, jewel tones, and aquatic hues to make us all look like a mermaid queen. Plus, it’s made with natural ingredients like Amazonian clay, mineral pigments, and vanilla extract for long-lasting wear and noticeably smoothe and softer skin.
All sirens of the sea need a mesmerizing lip, which is why we love the limited-edition Tartiest Holographic Lip Gloss. The vegan gloss acts as a holographic top coat that will change colors with every flash of light. We like to apply it on top of Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, which can withstand even the most passionate kiss from Prince Eric (swoon!). This transfer-proof liquid lipstick is adorned with a mother of pearl-inspired packaging, and it's available in our favorite rosy nude, Exposed. If you’re feeling extra flirty, you can complete the look with Tarte’s new multi-colored Mermaid Lashes.
As if all that sparkle wasn’t enough, the collection also includes a beachy Mer-Mist Shimmer Spray for the hair, face and body and a highlighting glitter gel that mimics a mermaid’s glimmering scales. Dab the gel on your cheeks and eyes, and you’ll surely make a splash during festival season.
