As the year comes to an end, so may be several of your most-loved beauty essentials. The products you absolutely cannot live without are typically heavy in rotation every day of the week (every day of the year), but are likely getting a little extra use as holiday parties and marathon shopping days have you touching up more often that usual. If this is the case for you — or if you're in search of a few more stocking stuffers for loved ones — you'll be thrilled to know that Tarte is having a sale. The great news is that the potential savings are huge; the not-as-good news is that the sale is super short, so there's no time to waste.
The beauty brand, known for its glam, natural and earth-friendly line of makeup and skin care, has formed a bit of a reputation surrounding its epic sales. The special shopping events don't happen often, maybe just a few per year, but when they go live they're can't-miss chances to score Tarte's products at really great prices. The Dec. 7 sale is no exception.
During Tarte's lightning-fast one-day sale (the clock is literally ticking on the brand's site) shoppers will be able to score significant savings on nearly everything, and with this sale, the more you spend the more you save. When you purchase two items you'll get 20 percent off, three things gets you 25 percent off, and four products will bring your total down a full 30 percent. Just be sure to use code STOCKUP when you checkout, and confirm product eligibility when you add to basket. The potential for savings will be noted under each product, and the main glaring exclusion seems to be Tarte's ever-popular Shape Tape concealer.
There are countless other opportunities, however, to save on some of Tarte's best-selling collections and products, and since your savings increase with the size of your buy, you'll want to go all-in on everything you need. Snag a couple bottles of the brand's Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation, priced at $39 a piece typically. Buying two during the sale will get your total down to $62.40 instead of $78, and will ensure you skin stays dewy all winter long. It's from the same line as Tarte's iconic concealer, so you can expect the same level of seamless coverage.
Stock up on mascara and eyeshadow so you're set through spring with the brand's five-star Maneater mascara (the limited-edition tube is irresistibly cute), and Tartelette In Bloom Clay Palette. Regularly priced at $23 and $39 respectively, buy the two together to score 20 percent off your order for a total of $49.60.
And though you may be a devotee to the Tarte's makeup offerings, consider giving the brand's skincare products a try — they're chock-full of natural, skin-loving ingredients that create an ideal canvas for the rest of your beauty routine. The Party Prep Skincare Set, usually $17, has everything you need to ensure a glowing complexion, and the Deep Dive Cleanser, $36 washes away all traces of makeup and impurities, without stripping skin of essential moisture. Purchased together, you'll only pay $42.40. Double your order to save 30 percent, and your total comes to $74.20 (that's $31.80 in savings).
Whether you're finding yourself at the very end of your most oft-used products, or you're just looking for a chance to try a new line of essentials, Tarte's super-short sale is the perfect opportunity to re-stock your shelves. Browse some of the brand's best-selling beauty buys below.
