Tarte September TSV 2010

Overall I really like the Tarte TSV.
The eye shadows are very smooth and they lasted pretty well--I did feel like they faded a bit by the end of the day but it wasn't a dramatic difference.

The brow mousse is nice but I wish I had been able to get the darkest shade. Medium brown looks normal on me from a distance but up close with the flash it looks a little orange or too light. But I think that is mainly because of the flash.

The lipgloss is a nice light gloss not too sticky. It is pretty well pigmented and lasted as long as most good glosses do.

The cheek stain is kind of weird. It has a jelly quality but is solid. It is easy to work into your skin but it is tacky and I just couldn't get use to it. I would toch my face and feel it there, I didn't like that. But it looked good and stayed on all day.

The Lights Camera Lashes 4-in-1 length volume curl mascara is my new favorite mascara. The pros--It does lengthen, curl and add volume, it is really easy to remove, the brush really grips your lashes and is a really good size. Cons--I wish it was blacker, it is really easy to remove--so it is not great if you are planning to cry or your eyes water.

The brushes are just oaky, nothing special.
The overall look of the kit is very nice. I'm sure anyone could wear it. I love the bamboo case that the eye shadows come in.
