Tarte's 8th World Wonder 2nd Shipment Swatches

Sorry, guys, as of right now you can't buy any of the things I'm showing you in this post except maybe on eBay.  I ordered the first 8th World Wonder set from QVC several months ago (click here to see the post about it!) and accidentally signed up for auto-delivery.  Which means that they automatically send you (and charge you!) every three months or so for a new set with different colors.  This doesn't last indefinitely; I think there are three different sets total you will get if you signed up for auto-delivery.  Hopefully Tarte will start selling these products individually at some point because they are all really great.

So while you can't buy these things (hey, I'm saving you money!), I just thought it showed how awesome the sets are the QVC offers.  I recently bought the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous set by Tarte from QVC and that one is amazing, too.  Unfortunately I think that one is sold out, too.  So you need to get on these deals fast because they sell out quickly!  And they are good deals.  I paid like $58 for this set.  And that include shipping and tax.  What I like about the sets is that everything feels like one cohesive collection.  I was going to cancel the auto-delivery for the third and last set, but now that I have the second I need the third too!  I'm a bit of a completionist.

Beware! This post is extremely pic heavy (26 pictures!)!  I'll also show comparisons between the items from the first set.

The bag everything came in.  I love this bag!  It's pretty roomy and it opens really wide.  I have big, mannish hands so I hate bags with tiny openings!

The blush brush.  I've really been needing a new blush brush and this one is awesome. It's soft and hasn't shed on me at all.

The eyeshadow quad.  I love this packaging.  It's solid bamboo and feels light, but durable.  There is a pretty strong magnet keeping it closed, but not so strong it makes it difficult to open.

See the color in the top right?  It's called "matte softest peach" but it isn't matte at all.  It's a satin/shimmer.  Which is nice because I actually prefer that!

The shadows are definitely on the more reserved/neutral side but they're still really pretty.  I found them in general to be soft and pigmented. The matte brown was a little patchy, but hey, it's a matte.

On the left is the palette from the second shipment and on the right is the palette from the first shipment.

Here are swatches of both palettes.

Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in Tickled.

Sorry, the flash washed to color of the blush out some.  It's actually quite a bit darker than this.

This blush is matte.  Sorry for they stray sparkles, they're left over from the eyeshadow swatches!  I like this blush, but I didn't like the formula as well as the blush in the first shipment. This one felt a little... dry for some reason.  I know it's a powder and supposed to be dry, but it wasn't as buttery and smooth as the first blush.  I do like the color though.

On the left is Tickled from the second shipment and on the right is Glisten from the second shipment.

Tarte PureOptic lipgloss in Pink Grapefruit

This is a thick, sheer, shimmery, minty gloss.  It isn't very sticky, but it's definitely on the thick side.  These glosses aren't super pigmented but the shimmer is gorgeous.

Tarte lipgloss in Golden Pink on top from the first shipment and Pink Grapefruit on the bottom from the second shipment.

Pink Grapefruit in the left and Golden Pink on the right.

Amazonian Clay Waterproof eyeliner in Rich Green.

Wow, this just may be my favorite eyeliner ever.  I don't want to use it because I'm afraid to run out! Haha!  It's so gorgeous and nuanced and pigmented.  This is probably my favorite part of the whole set.

The top is the eyeliner from the first set- Golden Plum and the bottom is Rich Green from the second set.

Here is most everything together.  The mascara on my lashes, the foundation used as concealer under my eyes, the quad on my eyelids, the eyeliner on my lash line, and the blush on my cheeks.  I didn't take a picture of my whole face because, well, I was feeling lazy and only put makeup on this half, haha.

Sorry for the millions of pictures, but this is a big set!  I'll try and let you guys know when QVC comes out with another awesome set because they really are worth getting.

Thank you for reading and have a great day//night/whatever!
