tarte’s Skin Squad Deluxe Discovery Set from Sephora


skinsquad skinsquad2Raeanne, back at it again with another tarte post. I literally love tarte and I have another post to do about their Swamp Queen palette too…someone please take my debit card away from me!

Anyways, I love deluxe samples and discovery sets/value sets. You get to try out different types of products, without spending a fortune AND you get enough to see if the product is something you’d actually like before splurging and buying the full size. I decided to pick up the skin squad discovery set from Sephora so I could try out a few more items from tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea collection and a few other items.

This set is $22, but it says that its a $68 value, so that’s pretty neato I guess. You also get 6 products, which you can get a decent amount of use from them. I was most excited to try the H2O hydrating boost, but I think I’m now excited to try them all.


Here’s a little bit of a closer look (I’m sorry for the horrid lighting, that’s what I get for taking pictures at 9pm.) So, you get a mascara, a tinted primer, a small blush, 0.24 ounces of the marine boosting mist, 0.25 ounces of the deep dive cleansing gel, and 0.33 ounces of the H2O hydrating boost.

So here’s the BB tinted treatment primer that has SPF 30 in it. I did get the set in the “light” shade but this primer is definitely too dark for me so I passed it along to my sister. I think it’s a great size for traveling, and you wouldn’t really need foundation since it has a tint to it. Plus the SPF in it is also a huge plus.

Here is the Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in the shade Oasis. It’s a beautiful pinky-nude and I think I would actually wear this color as a blush. It’s pigmented and can be built up if you want a bold cheek, or if you want a sheer cheek, you can accomplish that too. I think this color would be a good fit for many skin tones!


This is the Marine Boosting Mist. My sister has the full size, so I have used it before I got this. I absolutely love this stuff. It smells so GOOD. It has a citrus scent to it and it feels so refreshing on the face. It wakes you up and definitely revitalizes your skin and makeup. (Perfect size for travel too!)


This is the Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. I haven’t used this yet, but I am looking forward to using it in the future. It’s a hypoallergenic daily cleanser that removes makeup and impurities. It’s also fragrance free!

The H2O hydrating boost is amazing. It smells so great and refreshing and feels absolutely amazing on the skin. It soaks into the skin quickly and leaves your face feeling so smooth and moisturized. I will definitely be purchasing the full size. (I recommend that you do too! It’s awesome.)

And lastly, Lights, Camera Lashes! I haven’t tried a mascara from tarte before and this one looks quite cool. I love the textured packaging and the purple color is so cute. I love the way that the wand looks and I have a feeling it might be my second favorite mascara (after Better Than Sex) but I will obviously keep you updated!

What’s your favorite product from tarte? 🙂 Mine is definitely the Swamp Queen palette so far <3

Thanks so much for reading & I hope you enjoyed!

Xoxo, Rae

    I LOVE tarte blushes! The formula is perfect and like you said, it can be worn boldly or minimally depending on what you prefer that day
