Tarte Friends & Family 30% Off Starts Today + Recommendations

tarte friends & family sale

The Tarte Cosmetics Friends & Family Sale is in full swing, with 30% off sitewide (excluding Shape Tape Concealer and the new Magic Wands Brush set). They're also offering free shipping with a $40+ order, so if you've had your eye on anything from Tarte, now's the time to grab it! 

Here are a few recent purchases that I've been really happy with in case you're not sure what you want to get...

Tarteist Pro Palette (Reg. $53, Now $37.10)- This palette offers so much versatility, from your basic neutral shades to deeper, smokier shades. It's mostly matte with four metallic shimmer shades and the formula on both is highly pigmented and easy to work with.

Tarteist PRO Glow To Go (Was $23, Now $16.10)- I purchased this little palette instead of the larger PRO Glow highlight and contour palette and I'm so happy I did! The larger one has some deeper shades that wouldn't work for my fair skin tone, but this one is perfect! Plus the powder formula is so creamy and soft!

Tarteist Pro To Go Palette (Was $23, Now $16.10)- Even though this palette is small, it packs a major punch...I think the shades in here are even creamier and more pigmented than the larger Tarteist PRO palette. It's awesome for travel or just for using at home. It also comes in this set...for $2 more you get a mini Tarteist mascara and Glossy Lip Paint.

Maneater Palette (Was $29, Now $20.30)- This is a gorgeous palette if you're into warm-toned nude shades...you can create several different looks with this, from everyday nude to rich and smoky.

Also, it's not new but if you don't own the Tartelette in Bloom palette, I highly recommend picking it up (it's $32.20 on sale). It's one of my favorite palettes of all time...in the top 3. It's the perfect nude palette and one that I could use every single day if I had to.

I also highly recommend the Amazonian Clay Blushes (I'll post swatches in the morning). They're so long-lasting for powder blushes! Reg. $28, Now $19.60.

What are you planning on picking up during the Tarte sale, or have you already shopped it? Let me know in the comments below...I'd love to hear about your hauls!


  1. Thanks so much for all the swatches in this post, you always go above and beyond just telling us theres a sale. It was very helpful. I got the Maneater palette and two mini palettes. I can't wait to get them! How is Tarte's shipping times?

    1. Aw thanks I'm so glad you like them! :) I don't usually order from Tarte directly, so I don't have a lot of experience with their shipping times, but I did recently order their Magic Wands Brush Set through their site. They took a long time because they got damaged in the mail. A week had gone by and then I clicked on the tracking to see what was going on, and the USPS said they couldn't deliver due to a damaged package. So I contacted Tarte via email and they got right back to me, shipped out a new one and it arrived in 3 days. I was happy with their customer service, but I'm not sure if they sent it faster because I had an issue.

  2. I am so disappointed, I just bought the pro Palette at full price from Ulta yesterday. Damn me! I touched one shade, otherwise I'd absolutely return it and buy it from Tarte.

  3. Heads up, the Rainforest of the Sea Volume II eyeshadow palette is marked down to $25, so that makes it only $17.50 during the sale!
