    World of Wonder Productions

    AND to make this year's sale *extra* special, they're throwing in ANOTHER deal on top — 25% off a full-size Shape Tape concealer!!!


    I've repressed my math SAT scores, but I *do* know that up to 70% off (up to $200 value) is a STEAL. So I am here to take you by the hand and bring you step by step through everyone's favorite beauty deal of the century. Am I being dramatic? No.


    1. First, let's lay down the *foundation* of our kits: you really can't go wrong with these options that all have cult followings of their own. No matter what, your complexion is about to g-l-o-w!


    Let's break down how each foundation works:

    * Amazonian Clay Coverage Foundation: controls excess oil, provides a matte finish, actually lets your skin *breathe*, AND it promises to never crease or fade. Available in 36 shades.

    * Shape Tape Matte Foundation: absorbs oil and shine (for up to 24 hours), refines pores, and nourishes irritated skin with vitamin E. Available in 25 shades.

    * Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation: is packed with collagen and hyaluronic acid to hydrate all day, plump skin, and refine pores. Win, win, win. Available in 25 shades.

    * Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation: keeps your makeup perfectly matte for a wonderful 12 hours. It'll tackle redness, control excess oil, and minimizes pores. Available in 15 shades.

    * Clay Stick Foundation: neutralizes redness, evens skin tone and hyperpigmentation, minimizes pores, and miraculously hydrates, AND mattifies your skin at the same time. Available in 12 shades.

    * Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer: offers light-to-medium coverage with a ~blurring effect~ while protecting your skin with SPF 20 *and* nourishing with vitamins A, C, and E. Available in 7 shades.

    I went right for my constant favorite: Shape Tape Matte Foundation, because I'm done wondering if my T-zone can be spotted from space. This'll keep my complexion even, my pores under control, and my whole darn day shine-free. I'm not crying, my eyes are just sweating.


    Plus! If you're a skincare obsessive like me, you can't resist this formula's nourishing vitamin E. Who agrees with me? Oh, only almost 2,075 happy reviewers!

    Promising review: "I am OBSESSED with the Tarte Shape Tape foundation. It is lightweight and VERY full coverage. It covers up all my blemishes with little to no sheerness." —Melody

    Usual price: $39 (available in 25 shades)

    Need proof? Just 👏look👏 at👏 that👏 coverage!


    2. Next, we choose what we want to top off our foundation! Concealer? Highlighting drops? Contouring? HOW TO CHOOSE?! *Inhales dramatically*.


    You have no shortage of options!

    * Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush: adds a fun *pop* of color to your look (that lasts and lasts). Available in 13 shades.

    * Make Every Count Cheek Palette: ranges from sheer to intense (one shimmery, one matte) lets you pick a new ~look~ every day.

    * Amazon Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer: maintains a radiant *glow* that lasts WELL past summer. Available in two shades.

    * Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops: makes bright, luminous skin easier than ever (ty, micro-pearls).

    * Aquacealer Concealer: gives you the benefits from concealer *and* skincare thanks to its moisture-packed formula (aka you'll hydrate and blur at the same time). Available in 12 shades.

    * Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Powder: sets makeup and controls shine ALL day *and* nourishes your complexion with vitamins A, C, and E. Available in four shades.

    I chose the Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush so I'm rewarded the whole day for waking up in time to put on makeup. Considering it's pigmented enough to be done in a swipe, I'm confident I can handle its one-step requirements.


    AND I think we can all agree that we're intrigued by all these (nearly 3,275) positive reviews about how *soft* this blush is! I want to feel cuddled by my makeup!

    Promising review: "These are the most long-lasting pigmented blushes I’ve ever tried! They’re very buildable which I love and they blend out like a dream!" —Megan

    Usual price: $29 (available in 13 shades)

    3. Next, we pick something for our eyes. We've got a little bit of everything: shadows, eyeliner, lashes...does anyone know a coder so I can hack my way to getting all of these?!


    You'll get a whopping ~11 options~ to choose from! Here are some fan faves:

    * Tartelette Flirt Eyeshadow Palette: is packed with six pigmented (in both mattes and metallics) shades to make switching up your day-to-day look easier than ever.

    * Busy Gal Brows Tinted Brow Gel: streamlines natural-looking, full brows to just a flicks of your wrist thanks to its thin, easy-to-use wand. AND it's waterproof! Available in three shades.

    * Leave Your Mark Eyeshadow Palette: offers eight warm-toned metallic and matte shadows *with* a white gold highlight to leave you looking ~sun-kissed~ in no time.

    * Sex Kitten Eyeliner: is designed for the delicate lashes and inner rim with a formula that g-l-i-d-e-s so it never pulls or skips.

    * Tarteist Metallic Shadow: delivers long-lasting boldness and is so satisfyingly creamy, you may spend your whole morning playing with it. Available in 25 shades.

    * Tarteist PRO Cruelty-Free Lashes: are vegan, latex-free, and amazingly full and bold, yet still comfortable on sensitive eyes. BE STILL, MY HEART. Available in four styles.

    I picked the Busy Gal Brows Tinted Brow Gel to inform my brows that they will indeed become sisters today, if not at least cousins.


    Promising review: "Amazing product!!!! Its blends in and gives your eyebrows a natural look. It stays on all day and doesn't smear." —Dayana G

    Usual price: $18 (available in three shades)

    4. Time for mascara and don't worry about choosing — they're all formulated with specific purposes in mind so it'll be clear which is about to be your soulmate. Further proof makeup is better than humans IMO.


    You'll have ~10~ options, including a lash primer and limited-edition eyelash curler kit! Shall we break down the cult-faves?

    * Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara: lengthens, curls, volumizes, conditions, and really just wows the heck out of you. Its 360° lash works to curl and separate every individual lash with a softening provitamin B5 formula.

    * Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara: boasts a jet black formula that coats each and every lash to give 'em a SERIOUS boost in volume. Its multi-length bristles coat ensure one or two strokes are all you'll need for a dramatic finish.

    * Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara: is loaded with Amazonian clay to not only dramatically lengthen, but treat and soften your lashes. It boosts thickness, lengthens, and conditions (hello, antioxidants) without making your lashes feel heavy.

    * Lifted Sweatproof Mascara: can actually keep up with you during intense workouts (yes, even swimming!). Its vegan formula lifts and volumizes while you squat, spin, or just take break. Tl;dr: you're the only one doing any running.

    I went for the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara — I mean, this just seems to have it all. A vegan formula, cult following, and beneficial ingredients like rice bran, olive esters, and provitamin B5 to not only boost your lashes but improve them? SIGN ME UP.


    Promising review: "This is a top-of-the-line mascara. It makes my long eyelashes stand out even more and become even longer than I had thought possible. The mascara also gives a thicker and more plump look to the eyelashes. I highly recommend, people!" —Kendra W.

    Usual price: $23

    5. Now we choose our lipstick! The only *pouting* you'll be doing after today is for the 'gram thanks to these eye-catching shades.


    You won't have to worry about slim pickings, because you have 13 wonderful formulas to pick from! Shall we see what most people consider ~la crème de la crème~?

    * Limited-Edition Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick: is super comfortable to wear, which is great, because it lasts a whopping 12 hours — all while hydrating your pucker with buttery-smooth conditioners. Available in six shades.

    * Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint: puts a whole new meaning to transfer-proof. It's a liquid lipstick with a quick-dry matte finish and three missions: to never transfer, dry immediately, and prevent your lips from cracking or bleeding. Available in 10 shades.

    * Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint: glides on smoothly and feels totally weightless, due to its concentrated (non-sticky), conditioning serum. AND it'll condition and treat chapped lips so they stay soft and nourished while you show off your pucker. Available in seven shades.

    * Limited-Edition Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipgloss: both sculpts a contoured pout *and* seals your look so that it lasts all darn day. It's full coverage, satin-y matte, double-ended to let you use both lipstick and gloss, and packed with coconut oil to hydrate your lips. Available in four shades.

    * Tarteist Lip Crayon: helps to both prime *and* line your lips to give you a vibrant, seemingly skilled pout. Thanks to its super creamy, easy-glide (and hydrating) formula, it only takes a stroke to achieve the look! Available in 12 shades.

    I'm going with the Color Splash Lipstick, because I am ready for a world where my lipstick actually moisturizes my parched lips. Is this witchcraft? I support it.


    Think of this as the fanciest, most colorful lip balm of your darn life! And don't forget about that TWELVE HOUR WEAR. I love you, Tarte.

    Promising review: "I love how this feels after being applied. It moisturizes my lips nicely, which will be nice for the Minnesota winters. The shades that are available are great. I will certainly be buying more for the upcoming chilly holidays." —Tiffany G

    Usual price: $21 (available in six shades)

    6. Get ready skincare and hair lovers, because now's your chance to cheaply try new favorites! You've got your choice of moisturizer, mist, blotters, dry shampoo...I'm about to sweat off my makeup just trying to pick.


    You have 10 amazing options that range from moisturizers, powder brushes, to dry shampoo! Let's break down the biggest crowd-pleasers:

    * Limited-Edition Blot Party On-The-Go Mattifiers: features both oil-blotting sheets *and* Amazonian clay finishing powder to stop unwelcome T-zones in their path. The finishing powder absorbs into your skin to minimize pores, tackle excess oil, and keep makeup in place.

    * Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H20 Serum: delivers an instant feeling of hydration that lasts 12 whole hours, thanks to its formula of hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and marine plant extracts.

    * Limited-Edition Hair Goals Dry Shampoo: lifts oil and freshens your tresses, while naturally thickening by lifting your roots and boosting volume. So long, dirt, oil, and sweat. Hello, fresh-feeling (and smelling!) locks with LOTS of shape and volume.

    * Clean Queen Vegan Deodorant: is aluminum- and alcohol-free, as well as non-irritating and chock-full of natural odor neutralizers. It delivers a healthy, clean feel that lasts WELL into your subway commute (and never leaves white marks, streaks, or moisture behind).

    I went for the Limited-Edition Blot Party On-The-Go Mattifiers for feeling prepared against the seemingly unstoppable force that is my shine. Pores — you've been warned.


    Promising review: "I truly love this product! Especially if you're on-the-go and need a quick wipe and clay powder to get rid of my facial oil. It does its job and more! It's quick and there's no need for more makeup! Please believe me. I rarely comment on a product anywhere, but here it's important, people! You'll say heaven sent help!" —Angela I.

    Usual price: $34

    7. Last but not least: choose your own *custom beauty kit pouch* for all the makeup you're about to fill 'er up with.


    * Gold with tassel bag: to add a little ~glam~ to your routine.

    * Glitter half moon bag: to start sparkling before you even begin your routine.

    * Black and gold fabric bag: to feel très sophisticated every morning.

    * Rose gold sequin bag: to stay in party mode every day of the week.

    I knew the glitter half moon bag was my go-to. It'll really match the ~fancy, but cheap~ lifestyle I insist on living as I play with all my new makeup.


    Usual price: $15

    The usual total of all seven of my choices: $179! So yea — $63 is a S T E A L.


    AND! Don't forget you can add a full-sized tube of the wildly popular Shape Tape concealer for $20 — that's 25% off!


    In case you don't know WHY it's so darn popular, its mango seed and shea butter formula nourishes skin (which is GREAT when you're mid-breakout) — and has almost 13,872 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "This stays and does not melt off my face! It goes great for fine lines under my eyes and helps cover red spots and my rosacea on my cheeks. Love this product!" —NikkiNene
