The New Thing - Tarte Tartelette 101 Discovery Set

I Love Tarte Cosmetics, after a friend purchased a palette for me back in March 2014 which you can read 'Here
I have been dying to try more from the Tarte Cosmetics range, but a flight to the USA isn't coming up anytime soon!  
So I had to find the next best thing, here's where fellow blogger Laura from the amazing blog Love & Liquor came in.  I stalk her Instagram feed (in a nice way!!) and she posted about a website called Rose's Beauty Store.  
It had me intrigued and I ended up making my first purchase, the Tartelette 101 Discovery Set...

This discovery set has everything to introduce you to the Tarte range.  From a mascara, to the Maracuja Oil.
I decided to treat myself, and I'm so pleased that I did!

The 5 pieces contained inside are -
Deluxe Maracuja Oil (0.23 fl. oz.)
Deluxe Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Ave Princess (0.11 oz.)
Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara (0.13 fl. oz.)
Deluxe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Prim (plum nude) (0.05 oz.)
Deluxe LipSurgence Lip Crème in Divine (nude mauve) (0.056 oz.)
So lets show you close-up, each part of this kit!
Deluxe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Prim (plum nude) This is a gorgeous natural flush shade that looks stunning with a bold lip.  I've always wanted a full size of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushers and I think I will definitely take the plunge.
This little 1.5g size should last me a while, as it's so highly pigmented.
One of the items I have heard about in the blogging community are the Tarte Mascaras. This Lights, Camera Lashes one in particular has had a lot of press.  I had high hopes, but I was so let down!! 
The brush is lovely, but the formulation lacks 'wetness' it literally takes me about 4 attempts to get the lash coverage that I need.  It's such a let down.  I posted a picture of this mascara on my Instagram account, and asked you for your comments - and you came back and said that you too, were disappointed!
Another item that I was extremely excited to try from the range where the lip products. 
This collection contained a Deluxe LipSurgence Lip Crème in Divine (nude mauve)  
A small size, but it really packs a punch!  A glossy nude colour, that gives maximum hydration, and colour pay off - the first day wearing it, I received nothing but compliments.  I just cannot get enough of the colour and formulation.  It's very pretty!
Next up, the Deluxe Maracuja Oil (0.23 fl. oz.) a product that I have heard raved about by the beauty press, it smells lovely.  But I haven't used it properly yet.  
I think it'll work well on the dry ends of my hair.
Lastly in this collection, is the Deluxe Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Ave Princess (0.11 oz.)
A beautifully packaged bronzer, that's highly pigmented and waterproof?  What's not to love!  
I haven't tried this yet, but it's on my radar.  I've only had this collection for a few days, but I wanted to share my first impressions with you.
I need to edge away from my old favourite the NARS Laguna bronzer and start using this beauty!
You can purchase this beautiful Tarte Discovery Set for £25.00 'Here
A great price, to enable you to try more from the Tarte range of products.

I think Rose's Beauty Store is an untapped resource.  It stocks everything that's limited edition in Sephora USA.  
The product range is extensive, and the postage and packing rates are very low, and the products come beautifully packaged!

Thanks to Rose's Beauty Store and Laura for showing me a great website and amazing products.  I have a wishlist on the site ready to go!

Anything from the USA that you recommend me picking up?  
Your recommendations would be amazing!
