Tarte Cosmetics Goddess Glow Holiday 17 Highlighter Extravaganza


Yes, it's a highlighting extravaganza today!!!  I have something to show you that I purchased at the Sephora VIB Rouge Holiday Preview event.    I've already talked about the Fenty products that I purchased on youtube where I also introduced this piece of hot Tarte fire.  There are swatches and thoughts in the Fenty video linked and well as my video dedicated to the Tarte Goddess Glow Highlighter itself.  The highlighter has .42 gm of product for $35.  As of this writing it is available at Sephora and Tarte's website.  Tarte is a cruelty free vegan company.


The etching in the highlighter is to be remniscent of the tile work in Morocco.  I think they nailed it!!  I've used it five or six times already and the pattern is still well intact.  It'll take awhile to ruin the pattern with use.   There is a full mirror in this oversized compact.

The overall color is a delicate champagne beige with micro sparkles.  I think it swatches best in the video so if you'd like to see the swatches please watch the video.  I have some thoughts and tips there too.



I'm loving wearing this with all my tanks and cold shoulder tops.  It would be brilliant on the body during holiday season as well.  The teeny golden micro shimmers stay where you brush them on and don't fall off flaking all over.  It's a really well done highlighter.

Are you curious to see what else Tarte has coming out for holiday?  ME TOO!!!  I know there will be tons of stuff, Ulta Exclusives, Sephora Exclusives.  I'm getting curious!

You can follow Tarte Cosmetics on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.  What do you think about this lovely?  What kind of makeup are you looking forward to this holiday season?
