Tarte Holiday 2011 Collection

I feel like Tarte went right from summer to holiday, did I miss fall somewhere?  Was it QVC or Sephora only?  Or was is the True Blood products and I wrote it up without realizing it?  Well I have no clue but I remember going on their website about a month ago and seeing the summer collection and now I went on and the holiday gift collection is front and center.  Not that I am surprised to see that there holiday products are up early since it seems like most of their sales come from all of their great gift sets and palettes, I was just a bit surprised that I saw next to nothing for fall.

The holiday collection from Tarte consists only of sets and palettes, like so many of their collections always do.  While I love their sets, I caught myself wishing the other day that they sold some of the different products and shades individually, I am obsessed with a few of the shades in the True Blood palette and I would love to have a back up of them without having to go out and purchase the palette a second time.  I would love you forever people at Tarte if you could make this dream a reality for me...

This collection consists of four sets and palettes, one that is lip based, one that is eye based, and two that are a combination of products.  I have to say that I am more excited about this company than I have been in seasons past since I have loved so many aspects of the True Blood palette, I now want to try everything from this company and see if it as high quality as I would expect.

The holiday gifts collection from Tarte...

I love the Puttin On The Glitz palette, the variety of products is fantastic and so is the shade variety.  These are the types of palettes that I love to see, there is really something for everyone and this would be a great gift for a close friends this season.  I will also be picking up an extra one for myself.  My second favorite from this collection is the Shining Stars set.  Again this is everything that I want in a set and I enjoy being able to try all kinds of new products in the smaller sizes.  If I got a chance, I would like to buy both of the other sets but I could live without them for the moment as long I buy the two that I was discussing above.

Collections like this are why I am falling in love with Tarte.  The products are fantastic and they put together some of the best palettes and sets that I have ever seen.  I love the little extras that make these perfect for gift giving, the little bags and the application instructions make them perfect to gift (and receive!).  Tarte is quickly becoming one of my favorite makeup lines and I want to buy a lot from this collection!
