Tarte Limited Edition Berry Couture All Natural Stain Set Review

You'll notice many smoky eyes this season and plenty of vampy lips that sport goth purple and popping red shades.

Tarte did do mysterious eyes this season with it's new Eye Couture Day to Night Palette. And they definately took on the beautiful smoky eye that's favored around the Fall with it's new Indelible Wink shade. Check out more of the Tarte Fall Collection entitled "Health Couture" by clicking here.

Tarte Indeliable Wink

But Tarte took a step back, looked at Fall, and decided simplicity rules the Season. Be it Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall blushing pink cheeks and just bitten lips are obviously always in style.

Looking Fresh and Healthy wearing Tarte's Limited Edition Berry Couture Set

Which is why I couldn't resist indulging my need for blushing cheeks and just lovely pink lips by getting my hands on the new Tarte Limited Edition Berry Couture Collection. This collection includes a Berrylicious Cheek Stain and a dual ended lipstain gloss duo. If you're anal about parabens you'll be happy to know the set is paraben free and contains good for you ingredients.

I was surprised to see that the Cheek Stains have improved over time. It's been a while since I tried one and I recall they used to be domed with a clear plastic cover and much more prone to leak (even though they are solids) when you first unscrewed the lid. The formula has obviously improved with age and they are now completely flat topped and not as melty and messy as they once were. I like this new design and formula alot. The flat top of the product keeps the lid from squishing into the product thus creating that messy leak that you'd get from previous versions. Well done Tarte on improving this!

Yay New design prevent leaks and squishy cheek stain!

If you like a natural, very simple look this is the kit for you. A quick swipe of stain across both cheek bones and blend with your finger tips! Done, beautiful! Follow up with a swipe of stain for your lips and a little gloss on top.

Simple and beautiful for the Fall well into the Winter, through the Spring, and right on into Summer.

Fresh and Beautiful is always in style no matter what the Season!

Might the Muse suggest applying Tarte Cheek Stain and following up with a quick swipe of my personal favorite bronzer! The combination of blushing cheeks and beautiful bronze gives a healthy, fresh look.

You can pick up Tarte's Berry Couture at both Tarte's site and Sephora.

Hi Izzy, love the packaging of the eye palette. The quilted royal purple cover with the lock and keys is simply elegant! :)

The Berrylicious stain looks very wearable and lovely as well. I've not tried any of Tarte stains before cos of the many complaints. Esp with the humid and hot weather here in South East Asia(SEA).

Reading a dozen of reviews from SEA held me back from purchasing this. I can put this into my wishlist if it holds up to humid weather with the change in formula and design :)

hey gracie!

Me too! It goes wonderfully well with all the past releases. did you see the lippie set? I'm dying for that!

Yup I've heard about the humidity and stain probs but since the stains are revamped it MIGHT be better now :)

It used to have a domed top but now that it's sliced down I think it'll be much better The formula seems much better too, less melty!

I have three mini cheek stain from tarte (at this moment, I am tempting to pick up a full size just because it's full size, ahem) I love the scents they have, they are like pieces of sweet treats.

Your advice on stain+ bronzer sounds interesting, I will definitely try that when I get a chance. (or buy a bronzing powder first)

As always, you look great!

Tarte always does a great cheek stain. OMG I have not head that song in a long time I was laughing. Grease 2 is just one of those classis guilty pleasures.

hey muse! i've always been a little reluctant to get cheek stains and such because they seem to look a little on the fake side to me. but i think your review and fotd has just made me reconsider.

also, that video is pure genius. "ah ah ah~!" i'll be your girl for a season, indeed! ;-)

i also just took a look at your storage post. i thought i was looking at pix of in-store displays for a sec. lol! :-)
