Tarte first impressions (first ever purchase)

I’ve been eyeing up Tarte products for a while. I hear a lot about it but have never come across it in real life. In fact the only place I’ve seen it in the UK is QVC. The reviews looked good and when a TSV popped up on my Instagram, I knew now was the time. TSV stands for Today’s Special Value and is a one day only, incredible price deal.

It cost me around £12.50 through my usual Ebay shop and retails on the Innisfree website for £16. This is probably  ...
