Tarte Maracuja-Based Cosmetics


 The following is a sponsored post written by Tarte
and designed by A Very Sweet Blog.

When it comes to elaborate stories and flowery language regarding makeup ingredients, it's reasonable for the consumer to be skeptical. The discerning consumer should take stories about herbal elixirs prepared by the virgin descendants of Aphrodite herself, or other hyperbolic claims, with a grain of salt. 

It's reasonable to expect reassurance that what you're putting on your skin is safe, closer to something harvested from a plant than mixed in a mad scientist's lab, and most importantly that it will leave your skin looking and feeling better for having used it. 

If you have sensitive skin to start with, you've probably tossed plenty of expensive cosmetics for causing havoc with your skin. If you're going to put it on your face, it should make you look good and feel good. And it certainly shouldn't cause breakouts days later.

Keeping an eye out for products that will meet these criteria, you might come across Tarte's "high performance, natural" maracuja oil. Maracuja oil is harvested from a South American member of the passion fruit family, and its seedy pulp is cold pressed to make the pure Maracuja extract, which is rich in fatty acids and vitamin C. 

For those of you who have previously tried Argan oil for overnight skin hydration, you know it can sometimes make your skin angry (it's oil, right, that seems logical). However, you can expect pure maracuja to be gentler and more effective (and you shouldn't end up with an oil-slicky feeling on your face or pillow). Maracuja should help you wake up with softer, fresher-feeling skin, without any irritation, breakouts, or other examples of rebellious skin from using it. You can expect a positive experience with Maracuja oil, itself.


Tarte has begun making a variety of maracuja-based cosmetics which are worth exploring, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin. With maracuja's exceptional hydrating properties, and it's gentle, non-irritating effect on your skin, you can expect a good experience from Maracuja. Give it a chance, it will win you over.

  11. Love the fact that the line includes cosmetic products, too! Also, digging the "non-oily" idea! xo T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  12. Great review Kim and I love how you always show pics of the products. I'm a huge fan of Tarte and need to try these new ones. I've only used some of their blushes and lipgloss in the past and they are always good quality and last throughout the day. Thanks for sharing

  14. Hi Kim! You know, this post is just perfect for me. I suffer of sensitive skin that sometimes is also dry. I've used some oils in the past but I didnt find well with them, especially cause in the morning my skin were so oily and the result was even worst! I know the brand, never used it though but it looks great, the Maracuja oil inspires me, I really want to try it. All the based cosmetics must be really good, the cheek tint and the blush/gold are now onto my wishlist!:) Kisses dear, have a good day! xo

  15. I've never heard of this oil before. I see Tarte a lot here so I'll sample it when I get the chance.
    Have a good Thursday, Kim:)

  16. I'm a little weary of their skincare products since my skin is sensitive but the cosmetic line I'd definitely try!

  20. Am I the only one who sees "dracula" when I stare at the word "maracuja" long enough? I love the purple bottles and I lobe flower motif so I guess I would already feel the itch to buy this just for the packaging.

    I liked your first paragraph a lot. It's hilarious.

  21. Oh how awesome! I love the idea behind these products!

  22. Sounds like a great line, I'll have to check them out!

  29. I think certain ingredients really work for some folks. I swear by Nerium but I understand it doesn't work for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Maracuja oil certainly sounds like an intriguing skincare ingredient. I've been learning to appreciate the benefits of skin oils. I'm a big fan of Tarte's amazonian clay blushes so I would be curious to try out this line as well. Thanks for the intro!

  32. Great to be able to use a product like this without breakouts! All of these products are so very tempting!! I love the idea of skin care in cosmetics. The cheek tint looks really easy to apply and handy to put in your bag. Thanks for sharing Kim.

  34. Oh wow, never heard of them but this range sounds perfect for me and my sensitive/oily skin. I'm having a lot of breakouts recently and want my skin to heal >_<

    Thanksfor your kind words, I'll keep blogging about my activities buy I'm unsure if I should branch off into reviews too. It does seem like a hard job to do and would need sponsors. You're doing a great job :)

  36. Hey Kim this sounds like an interesting line. Never heard of maracuja oil. But def worth trying i think. I used argan oil for hair but never on the face. Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing this.

  37. I've never tried tarte before but I've heard great reviews of it! I'm curious about the brand!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm fascinated by this collection and by natural skin care products in general, though I wouldn't use maracuja oil because I have semi-oily skin. Love the packaging too!

  40. Kim, I love that your wrote about the difference in oils This one looks promising, I will be looking for it.. So many of the new oils got hyped, especially for hair it seems. I ruined my hair earlier this summer using an Argon oil product on my hair to smooth it--it just dried it out and my hair guy banned me from using it anymore, lol.

    Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

  42. I love this line. Very very good quality of products.
    Pleez don't worry about that invite and thanx for the heads up. I will probably not bother either as I really don't have the time these days. Just keeping up with my blog is a job and a half plus a parent who has been ill all year. Have a GREAT weekend!!
