Tarte Glow Girls Bronzer & Highlight Duo

Tarte is one of the only brands that I have been desperate to try out and with them finally shipping to the UK from their website and being available at QVC, I have a growing collection. This little set was on an incredible deal a few weeks ago and I managed to get it even cheaper with 15% off and free delivery so I had to have it.

I ordered this Glow Girls Bronze & Highlight Duo directly from the Tarte Cosmetics website and it did take a few weeks to arrive but it only cost me £7 so I wasn't too bothered about the wait as it was such a good price and shipping was free. This is one of the few travel sets available and they are a great way to try out the brand at a lower price. I have so many highlighters and bronzers in my collection so I loved the idea of getting mini sizes as I am never going to go through all of my makeup! One thing I absolutely love about Tarte Cosmetics as a brand is that they are a cruelty-free brand with many of their products being Vegan, the bronzer is this set is Vegan. 

I love the attention to detail with the packaging of the products, even though they mini sizes, they look almost identical to the full-size versions, the only difference I can tell is that the minis don't have mirrors inside the compacts. The packaging of each product is of good quality, it feels very well made and the pans of the products are a great size for mini products as you are still able to use your normal brushes with them.  I was worried I wouldn't be able to use my larger, fluffier brushes with the bronzer but it works really well. 

    The bronzer is this set is in the shade Hotel Heiress which is a deep bronze, I was a little worried that this wouldn't work for my lighter skin tone but it looks gorgeous on the skin. This has a natural matte finish and is incredibly long-lasting. It applies effortlessly to the skin to warm and bronze to give a sunkissed look. A little goes a long way with this and I like to use a lighter hand at teh moment to make sure it isn;t too dark for my skin tone but once I have a hint of a tan, this will look even better on the skin. What I love about this bronzer is that it never looks patchy on the skin, even after hours of wear. It has a smoothing effect on the skin and is so blendable. 

   The main reason I wanted this set was for the highlighter as I had been hearing nothing but good things about it! The set includes the Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Exposed which is a nude highlight. I have found this shade to look so well with my skin tone and it looks amazing on the cheekbones if I do say so myself! When I first looked at this highlighter in the pan, I was a little worried about how it would look on the skin because it does have glitter in it but this doesn't translate at all on the skin. It adds a stunning yet intense glow but it doesn't draw attention to my pores or texture, it glides over it. It looks very luminous on the skin and just like the bronzer, it is very long lasting on the skin. I am obsessed with how this product smells, it has a chocolate/vanilla scent and I am all about the scented beauty products at the moment! I definitely want to check out the other shades of this product next!     

The Tarte Glow Girls set retails for £13 (currently in the sale for £8) from the Tarte website - HERE.
