Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift | Tarte | Review | KrystiEncounters

January is my birthday month and I swung by Sephora to pick up a facial cleanser and my birthday gift.  In store you can select from 1 of 2 options; Tarte or Caudalie.  Online you have a third option; Jack Black.

I picked the Tarte Gift which has exclusive new shades for Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Paaarty and a Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit.


The blush is a beautiful pinky color that adds a nice natural touch to the skin. It’s build-able to a nice blushed / flushed color.


The lip paint is on the left, the blush on the right.

I wasn’t a fan of the lip paint as it didn’t last very long and I was quite disappointed in the formula.  I’ve never tried their Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paints and trying this mini one didn’t make me want to go out and purchase some to try out.

Out of the two, I only liked the blush and the lip paint I could of skipped on.  It is a free gift so if you want to try it, maybe you’ll have a different experience.  If skincare interests you more than definitely go for the skincare options since I don’t think you’re missing out with these items.

Has anyone else got their 2017 Birthday Gift yet?
