Our Favorite Tarte Products

August 16, 2023


Team LIY

“I feel like my entire makeup bag is just Tarte products” – actual words from the LIY Team. It’s no secret we’re BIG fans of Tarte Cosmetics around here. Between the trusty concealer we’ve been using for years and the lip balm we’re trying in every single shade, Tarte has become a staple in our beauty routines. Today we’re sharing the products we’d rate 10/10 – chef’s kiss, as the kid’s say these days. 😉 You know, the ones we’d force our friends to borrow on a girls trip. Without further ado, here are the Tarte products you need in your makeup bag!

The Best Tarte Products


Skin Treat Poreless Tinted Moisturizer

I have been using this for a year or so now, and I have zero plans of changing it anytime soon. It is my everyday foundation as I love that it has SPF 20, provides a flawless finish, and goes on feeling like a cloud. You must try this for the softest, silkiest, smoothest formula! It stays on well all day, but doesn’t look cakey!

Face Tape Foundation

I love that this foundation is full coverage, but has a natural finish!

Maneater Blush & Glow Cheek Plump

Lisa here! I had to go get some more concealer and saw this product and thought I’d give it a shot. I. Love. It! I dab along my cheekbone and done. It stays on all day and the texture is amazing and easy to blend and also gives a little plump!

Clay Play To-Go Cheek Palette

This palette is so beautiful and perfect for travel! I love that it has a bronzer, blush, and highlight in one so that I can take it on the go.

Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

This blush is effortless, beautiful, and blendable!

Breezy Cream Bronzer

Sculpt me up, baby! I love layering this cream bronzer under powder for a contour and to warm up the face!

Sculpt Tape Contour

This is a great liquid contour stick for beginners! Just apply 2-3 drops below your cheekbones and blend upwards towards your hairline. If you’re new to contouring, there’s a really helpful video on Tarte’s website!

Blush Tape Liquid Blush

This is the same concept as the liquid contour! Just add a drop or two of this liquid blush your cheekbones and blend with a brush or beauty sponge for the perfect rosy glow.

Shape Tape Concealer

The LIY Team’s favorite concealer! We’ve owned & loved this one for years. It’s full coverage – a little bit goes a long a way and works great for dark under eye circles and concealing blemishes!


Fake Awake Eye Highlight

A product that makes me look like I am more awake than I am?! YES PLEASE. Pop this baby in the waterline and you will look like you are caffeinated and rested!

Big Ego Mascara & Lash, Camera, Lashes Mascara

Mascara is my FAVORITE part of a makeup routine. If I have no time to throw on anything else, that is the product I am 100% grabbing! Now, I don’t have the longest lashes, but both of these mascaras give me a great boost of length and volume! The big ego vegan mascara has a “false lash effect” and the lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara gives an “instant eye lift effect”. I also love that they both have ingredients that treat and nourish lashes while you’re wearing them! No transfer or flake issues here!

Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette

If you’re looking for a sign to upgrade your eyeshadow palette from 2015, this is it. But really, those things have an expiration date, friends! I love this palette from Tarte with the prettiest neutral colors, with both matte and shimmer options. It’s a great everyday eyeshadow palette and small enough to fit in your makeup bag!


Maracuja Juicy Lipstick

I’m not a big lipstick wearer, but this maracuja juicy lipstick feels like a lipstick and balm in one! I also love this natural color and creamy feel.

Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm and Lip Plump Set

I absolutely SWEAR by the Tarte Maracuja Juicy lip balm and lip plump, especially layered together in this set! The perfect amount of color, hydrating, and even plumping up the lips a bit!
