Tarte Treasure Box Collector’s Set Review

I shared this little goodie box in my earlier post about my Birthday Haul, but I’m not done talking about it. I’m so happy with it! I went back and forth over getting this or not, as it was little pricey. But, I saw reviews, and it looked beautiful, and I just really wanted it, so hey, treat your self!

Let’s get into this amazing package!

First off, the packaging is really sweet. It’s a metal box, which folds out to reveal all the goodies. I love the colours and floral design!

Let’s take a peek inside.

Ta-da! Look at how much is packed into it! It’s more makeup than I needed, but I definitely want all of it. It’s a combination of blush, bronze, highlight, eyeshadows, eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss and also, a mirror!

Time for a closer peek.

To the left is two bronzers, on top is two blushes, and in the middle is a highlighter. The bronzers are Amazonian clay bronzers in Navigate (matte bronze), and Excursion (bronze lustre). The Amazonian clay highlighter is in Wanderlust light champagne). The Amazonian clay blushes are in Perk (carnation pink) and Wish (watermelon pink). I did a swatch thing, cause those always look like fun! I really like the highlighter! I’m not too into blush, but I still plan to play around with everything.


The treasure box comes with 24 colours! They’re all really pigmented, and a mix of matte and metallic colours. They also all have cute names. I like the mix of dark, neutral and lighter colours! I can’t wait to play around with everything. The names are also all really fun.

In the first photo, from left to right we have Palace, Artisan, Craft, Culture, Scenic, Whirl, Tales, Trinket, Awe, Bazaar, Cloud 9 and Utopia. In the second photo, from left to right we have Legend, Tempt, Emporium, Globe, Adventure, Souvenir, Odyssey, Joyride, Wayfarer, Lantern, Caravan, and Quest.


Finally, the extra goodies, or the ‘hidden treasures’.

The Sex Kitten eyeliner is first. I use eyeliner most days, and I love playing with this. On one end is the pen, on the other is a smudger.

Next is the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara. It was easy to apply, and after only one coat, I could already see a difference.

Finally, we have the Tarteist Lip Paint in Grand (Deep Rose). I really love the colour of this on me! Normally, I stick with nude, but I will make an exception for this one. I really like the formula for this lipstick. It goes on so smooth and once it’s dry, it doesn’t budge. I was eating food, drinking from glasses all day, and it didn’t smudge or budge!

To end it all, here’s a picture of me wearing makeup, of which most of it was just from this box.

Birthday Presents

If you’ve been reading my posts recently, you’ll know it was my birthday a few days back! Yesterday, I recapped my birthday weekend, so to wrap up these birthday posts, I wanted to share what gifts my family were nice enough to get me, and also what I got myself (treat yo’ self)!

What My Family Got Me

From my parents I got this cute little breakfast set. It’s a little tray, mug, a little teapot tray and a coaster.

I also got this recipe book. We’ve had it for years, and growing up, both me and Jo would try out recipes. Since Mum doesn’t use it anymore, she’s said that I can officially have it!

Speaking of cookbooks, Rory also got me one! He got me Nerdy Nummies which he knows I’ve been deliberating buying since forever. I’m so excited looking through the book, and I hope to try out some of these incredible recipes!

The baking theme was strong in the gifts, as Rory also got me a zester. Something else I’ve been muttering about needing for a while!

I also was sent a gift from my sister which arrived yesterday. I was talking with her about my love of novelty mugs, and that’s exactly what she got me. Plus this fluffy keychain with my initial!

What I Got Myself

I bought this amazing product from Tarte during their Black Friday sale. It’s a Treasure Box Collector’s Edition, and it’s packed with so much goodies I literally gasped as I opened it. Eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, a highlighter, lip gloss, mascara, eyeliner, a mirror, all packed into this gorgeous metal box! I’ll get more into it in another post, cause I could go on about this for a while.

I also got went to Mecca Maxima and bought travel sizes of two products I’d been really wanting to try. These are the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara. I’m excited to try both of these!

Kikki.K sends you a $10 off coupon on your birthday, so we went by the store to pick something up. Kikki.K is a stationary store that has lots of adorable products. I saw that they have some little piece of jewellery now which is so sweet! I chose this little moon and star necklace to use my coupon on.

While at the book store, I came across a copy of The House at Pooh Corner, with the original illustrations by E.H. Shephard. I immediately got it, as I’ve lost the copies I had when I was younger.

I also treated myself to another tattoo! I now have three, and they were all this year. Haha, and I didn’t believe people when they said tattoos were addictive. This time, I got a little delicate piece along my wrist. It’s made up of small wildflowers which I’ve always loved, and baby’s breath, which were part of my wedding bouquet. It came out so cute, and I love how we arranged the placement of it! We decided to have the stems growing out of my wrist instead of the other way around!

That’s everything that I received for my birthday! I’m so happy with everything my lovely family got me, and I even got myself some (lots) of gifts too!

What’s something you’ve treated yourself to recently?
