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.

    1. Thank you! ?

  1. The Sex Kitten eyeliner got me with its name. I mean who does not want to be a sex kitten on days 😉 Also, the smudger is a useful thing. I shall look out for one with it. I usually use my finger tips to smudge away. xx

    1. Haha, it got me too. I also love the packaging. I’m not sure if it shows too well on the photo. But the lid has got a slinky gold cat on it ?

      1. Yeah I noticed the slinky feline. Smudged eyes make me want to purr with the sheer sexiness of them 😉

  2. This is sooo cute! And I love how you did your make-up! Tarte can seriously do no wrong in my eyes (on my eyes? lol 😉 <3

  5. I’m so excited for you that you have this set!! It sounds really great, I’m always a little bit cautious when buying limited edition sets as the quality isn’t always the best but Tarte knocked this one out of the park. You look so lovely in the photo at the bottom (as you always do!) 🙂
