Two mascara comparisons- Lights, Camera, Lashes (purple tube) and Lights, Camera, Flashes (gold tube) are both by Tarte.

Brushes are very different in size and texture. I personally found the Lashes brush to be softer, and the Flashes brush to be a bit more firm and fatter. Both brushes are very different in size, firmness, and application.

 Pigment of the Flashes is not as strong as the Lashes

The one I personally pick is The Lights, Camera, Lashes for better pigment, brush, and results.

This was a one day offer of 6 pre-selected Tarte Items of choice  for $69.

From the pre- selected items, I chose the Tarte True Love Amazonian Clay Blush and Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, Lights Camera Flashes mascara, Smolder Eyes (Golden Beige- new color), Lipsurgence in Sweet, and the Contour brush.

When I found this value set, I was so happy because I was able to select products that I needed for now and in the future (some of the items in the set I don’t plan on using right away).

These colors I am showing today are not sold separately elsewhere. I ended up with them from the Tarte 3-in-1 Indulgences sets which are now discontinued.

First batch of colors I have been loving are sold as an individual set on QVC found here for $42.50.

The second batch of colors do not come in a set.

The lipsurgence has a twist up applicator and there is no way to sharpen it.

lipsurgence tip

 They remind me of the  NYX lip colors- they look soft but go on bright even though the pigment is sheer to medium.  I love the sheen, pigment, and softness they have. I apply the lipsurgence like regular lipstick and sometimes as a soft liner. I have been preferring the lipsurgence over lipstick and lip gloss because it is easier to wear.

Tarted had a Friends and Family sale awhile go which took 30% off sale and non-sale items. I bought the Clean Slate Face and eye primer, and the 3-in-1 Indulgences set.

3-in-1 Indulgences set which was a 13 piece set that came out to $57 after the reduction. The set included two eye shadow palettes with 8 shadows each, two blushes, two lipsurgence and  gloss, and two mascaras and three eye liners all full size.

The first time I bought the set was on QVC with different colors last year, and the Friends and Family sale made the kit come out to a better price.  The colors in the kit are a bit more bronzey, mauve, and suede than my last one.  Thanks to both sets, I am now becoming a lipsurgence hoarder and looking at different colors.

I am going to be checking out more Friends and Family sales from other beauty companies because it is a pretty good deal.
