A few weeks ago, Tarte was on sale at ideeli, a sample sale site. With an in-store credit to spend, I decided to order a few items since they were great deals. The order was placed on April 24th and I received the final package on May 13th (two sets were shipped separately).
Tarte Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss, regular retail price: $21 each
Liquid Sunshine (nude) and R&R (plum) were sold as a set on ideeli for $14. For reviews of the lipgloss, check out Sephora.
Tarte hEYE Impact Waterproof Creaseless Shadow/Liner Duos, regular retail price: $36 set
Also sold as a set in Bronze and Plum, these duos were $19. I swatched these babies at work and I couldn't rub them off (even with a wet tissue)! For half the day, I was stuck with makeup swatches on my hand. I would say they are definitely smudge-proof.
Here's a swatch in natural light...
Total regular retail price: $78
Total purchase price (including $10 shipping): $43
Total savings = $35!
Sample sale sites are great ways to shop luxury brands at a discount! Sites that I've also purchased beauty products from include Gilt Groupe (another Tarte sale!) and HauteLook (scored an Emjoi Soft Caress Epilator for $47). There are a ton of sample sale sites out there now. Follow them daily as sales change every 24-48 hours. Good luck!
