Today I have the Tarte Double Duty Beauty 101 Discovery Kit ($36) to show you. This full size intro set features four products from Tarte’s new Double Duty Beauty collection with 2-in-1 benefits. This has everything you need for contoured cheeks, lips and eyes – it’s multitasking makeup that keeps you gorgeous on the go!
A $100 value, this exclusive makeup set includes :
- Full size The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Gloss in VIP (cool nude) (lipstick 0.12 oz) (lip gloss 0.06)
- Full size Colored Clay Bronzer Blush in Pink Bronze (0.31 oz)

- Deluxe size Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara & Lash Fibers (mascara 0.16 oz) (fibers 0.01 oz)
The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Gloss – This is a two-in-one product featuring a full coverage lipstick and lipgloss that deliver a dose of color and glossy shine in complementing shades with a sweet vanilla scent. The shade included in this set is VIP, a pinkish nude that would look great on almost all skintones….it’s a very flattering shade on my light-medium complexion! I love the creamy, super hydrating formula of the lipstick that packs a pigmented punch! It glides on like butter and has a lovely, creamy satin finish. As for the coordinating lipgloss, it’s also nicely pigmented and isn’t too sticky or tacky. The soft pink nude shade can be worn on its own or layered on top of lipstick for a for a touch of color and shine.
Colored Clay Bronzer Blush – This is an all-over buildable bronzer blush infused with color-correcting colored clay. The shade included is Pink Bronze. I like to use it by swirling my blush brush across all the colors and dust along the cheekbones. It gives me a healthy flush with a subtle glow. I haven’t experimented using the browns and pinks separately for bronzer and blush yet. The formula is also easily buildable to get your perfect level of customized warmth.The case is beautiful!
Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara & Lash Fibers – This convenient, double-ended product combines Tarte’s best-selling Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 mascara with lash extending fibers to build on your natural lashes, making them instantly appear full, fluttery and fabulous. Here’s how it works:
PREP with Mascara: Apply one coat of mascara onto upper lashes.
EXTEND with Fibers: Before mascara sets, coat the lash brush with black fibers and pat onto top of upper lashes, starting from the middle and patting outward toward the tip. Start at outer corner and work your way towards the middle of the eye.
SET with Mascara: Finish with a final coat of mascara to set and seal fibers in place.
Honestly, I had never tried a mascara with faux lashes before but this one turned out to be a great find! It does make my lashes look long and full. It takes getting used to though and I had a few fibers fall on my face when I applied for the first time, but you just have to make sure to put enough mascara on top to lock fibers in place.
The Eye Architect Double Ended Liner and Shadow – This is a 2-in-1 eyeliner and creamy powder shadow infused with Amazonian Clay and Essential Oils to help smooth and condition. The twist-up eyeliner is waterproof while the eyeshadow has a silky, blendable formula that applies smoothly. There are 3 shades available and this set comes with Brown/Champagne which is right up my alley! The deep bronzy brown eyeliner glides on effortlessly with an excellent color payoff and really stays put all day. This eyeliner and shadow is the perfect pairing for an easy, everyday look. The paraben-free formula is ophthalmologist tested and safe for contact lens wearers.
Here are the swatches for the eyeliner, shadow and lipstick :
