    Now that we've got the logistics out of the way, time to shop our faves from Tarte's very extensive (and awesome and 100% cruelty-free) offerings:

    1. Rainforest of the Sea 4-in-1 Setting Mist is the answer to all the yucky parts of summer. Makeup disappearing within hours? It's a priming spray! Makeup melting off your face once you walk outside? It's a setting spray! Skin/makeup feeling dull? It's a hydrator and refresher too! #multitaskingMVP

    @tartecosmetics / Via

    Promising review: "I love this mist, whether I'm using it underneath makeup or without makeup. It's hydrating and works great as a primer. It's also really refreshing for my skin on the days I'm not wearing makeup. It has a light almost-citrusy smell that isn't irritating, and I find myself reaching for it over and over again because my skin looks and feels great while using it!" —Julia L.

    Price: $18.75 (originally $25)

    2. Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, as the name suggests, dries down in an instant to a matte finish that, very importantly, doesn't feel overly drying or make your lips do that silly shriveling-up business — and it's fully pigmented, so wave that magic wand!

    Promising review: "Y'all, lemme tell y'all about this. I was in a car accident yesterday, and my airbag exploded in my face. Y'all, it looked like my face was imprinted on the airbag, including my Tarte Delish Lip Paint. Even with that exploding in my face, MY LIP PAINT STAYED ON. IT WAS ON FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. THIS. IS. THE. STUFF." —Michaela C.

    Editor's note: Please drive carefully!!

    Price: $15 (originally $20; available in 25 shades)

    If your lips need an lil' extra TLC, try Tarte's Lip Facial Lip Scrub or Pout Prep Lip Exfoliator for a spin.

    3. Mascaras Most-Wanted Mini Set comes with deluxe sizes of four best-selling lash amplifiers: Maneater (volume); Lights, Camera, Lashes; Gifted (four-in-one); Lash Paint (jet-black volume); and Lifted (sweatproof), because finding your fave mascara shouldn't be a race against the clock — ahem, speedy expiration dates.

    Promising review: "Love that I could sample different mascaras before committing to buying a larger tube, though I actually love them all, so I may just rebuy this set! The Maneater does amazing things to my lashes by lengthening and separating them, Lash Paint has a gorgeous finish and builds well, Lifted is sweatproof and great for swiping on before going to the gym on the weekend, Gifted Amazonian Clay creates more volume and doesn't flake throughout the day, and Lights, Camera, Lashes does exactly what it promises to do. Overall, I'm ecstatic with this purchase!" —Megan R.

    Price: $20.25 (originally $27)

    4. Sex Kitten Eyeliner stays put, PERIOD. Whether it's your upper lash line or waterline, it stays true to its pigment and form all freaking day — even sensitive, watery eyes can rejoice!

    It also comes with a ~smudging~ tip, if you're into that smoky eye life.

    Promising review: "This is by far one of Tarte’s best products. For years I’ve been searching for a liner for my waterline that won't smudge, and after many failed and disappointing attempts, I came across this gem and absolutely fell in love. Wherever I apply the liner, it stays and doesn’t smudge all day. By the time I get home from work it looks the same as it did when I left, and I never experience the god-awful raccoon eyes that some eyeliners leave me with. If you’re going to invest in an eyeliner, this is the best one I’ve found!" —Hayley G.

    Price: $15 (originally $20)

    5. Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser is a travel (and everyday) staple: it's gentle enough for all skin types — but, of course, use it as often as you see fit — and sloughs off dead skin cells to reveal polished, radiant skin, thanks to ~fossilized sea algae~ that absorbs surface oil and toxins.

    Promising review: "This product is genius. The twist up makes it so much less messy, and I love how it feels on my skin, as well as how my skin feels afterwards. I usually apply it, let it sit for a few minutes like a mask, and then scrub it around to exfoliate. I had to buy a second one 'cause my boyfriend stole mine — he loves it too! This is a product I will continue to use for years." —Amanda

    Price: $16.50 (originally $22)

    6. Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush feels ridiculously silky once on the skin, so you can layer it up without your skin looking chalky or like it has, you know, a ton of unnatural color on it! And, as with the rest of Tarte's Amazonian Clay line, it helps control oil and add a dose of hydration.

    Promising review: "Ladies be warned: these blushes are addictive! I have Dollface, Blissful, Glisten, Peaceful, and Exposed, and love them all — and I still want to get more! I have fair skin with cool undertones and every shade I've tried looks good, so don't be afraid to try out some of the brighter or deeper shades. These are highly pigmented and have no powder fallout, so you're not wasting product. These last about 8-10 hours on me, blend easily, and don't change color throughout the day. They are highly pigmented and easy to build up. I like to apply, buff it in with a foundation brush, and then apply another light layer on top for a perfectly natural look. If you're unsure, at least go swatch them and see how pretty they are!" —Nicole

    Price: $21.75 (originally $29; available in 14 shades)

    7. Poreless Mattifying Primer is an invisible gel that is basically facial shine's worst nightmare — ideal for oily and combination skin types, it'll minimize pores and give your skin the appearance of a super smooth layout, as well as a heavy dose of superfruits and antioxidants.

    Promising review: "I love this primer: it preps my face, definitely blurs my pores, and matiffies my face. I put it to the test as soon as I got it under the Texas sun and 90+ degrees weather, and my makeup stayed matte." —Zullymar R.

    Price: $24 (originally $32)

    8. Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation SPF 15 makes the full-coverage crowd go wild with its non-cakey, oil-free, and matte-finish formula — and with 40 shades, you'll definitely find ~the one~.

    @tartecosmetics / Via,

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I've used this for years and I've never wanted to stray and try something different. It has great coverage, while still looking natural. Combats oil really well and lasts a long time, even through sweat and humid weather." —Olivia J.

    Price: $29.25 (originally $39; available in 40 shades)

    9. Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum engulfs your face in a tide of cooling hydration, thanks to a combo of hyaluronic acid, Vitamin B5, and algae and marine extracts. In seconds, your skin absorbs the water-gel formula, and you're ready to go to bed or go about your day!

    Promising review: "This serum is an absolute dream. It is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and gives my combination skin the perfect drink it needs. My skin is left feeling soft and looking flawless. If I didn’t have so much fun using my other Tarte products, I would splash this on my face and go. It also minimizes the appearance of pores. I love using this at night before I go to bed, and when I wake up, I look energized and refreshed. I had previously only been using the samples which came with my other orders, but I finally ordered the full-sized version and I urge you to do the same. THANK YOU, TARTE!" —Elizabeth M.

    Price: $31.50 (originally $42)

    10. Busy Gal Brows Tinted Brow Gel has a super thin brush for precise application and shaping so you get the brows of your dreams, every single time. Did I mention it's waterproof and takes only seconds to use? Hello, yes, I'll take five!

    Promising review: "This has to be the least time-consuming brow filler that I've ever used, and I've tried a lot! The tiny spooley brush creates an effortless, mess-free application for on-the-go girls like myself. Unlike competitor brands, this stuff stays put and doesn't run down your face when you sweat (gym-tested and -approved, lol)." —Carley19

    Price: $13.50 (originally $18; available in three shades)

    11. Minutes to Mermaid Brush Set might just swim away if you're not watching closely, but when they're in your grasp, they're probably some of the most mesmerizingly soft brushes you've ever touched — blend away, because this is the perfect marriage between beautiful design and product efficiency.

    Promising review: "Bought these for my girlfriend, and they’re amazing!! I even tried them, and I can say they’re soft, durable, and wicked easy to clean!" —Robert B.

    Price: $21.75 (originally $42)

    12. Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight Contour Palette makes contouring less of an intimidating nightmare, and more of a party! It has four highlight and two contour shades (in both cream and powder formulas) with cool undertones to ~mimic shadows and light reflections~. Esteemed makeup pro, is that you?

    @tartecosmetics / Via,

    Promising review: "As someone who is the definition of porcelain, finding highlights and contours that actually look good on my skin isn't an easy task. This palette changed the game for me. Every shade looks incredible on my skin and the contours are easy to blend out, and they're light enough that I don't look like I decided to use dirt for makeup. The highlight colors are beautiful and stay all day. They don't look glittery, but rather give off a very lovely glow that you can build up easily, if you feel like blinding your friends. I also use them on my eyes to brighten them a little if I'm not doing a full look that day. I could not recommend a palette more. I love this thing more than I love sleeping, and that's a lot." —Aileen

    Price: $33.75 (originally $45)

    13. TarteGuard 30 Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 doesn't *just* protect your skin from UVA/UVB rays using all mineral ingredients; it also contains powerful antioxidants like maracuja, red algae, apple extract, and honeysuckle extract to breathe life back into your skin.

    Promising review: "I love this SPF. Living in the Southwest with 24/7 sun, this product is easy to apply, and it's easy to apply makeup on top of it as well. It doesn't have any greasy feeling, nor does it melt off when I go for my jogs. Always a must." —Talia

    Price: $24 (originally $32)

    14. Chrome Paint Shadow Pots are just what you need if you want everyone ooh-ahhing over the mesmerizing metallic show on your eyes — and that's thanks to 80% pure pearl pigments that make it so damn easy to apply (are you staring at that gif, or what??) and STUN.

    Promising review: "I purchased this Chrome Paint in Top Yacht to attend an event. On the way, I actually applied this in the car with my fingers. I just dabbed a dot on the middle of my eyelid. Well, everyone went wild. It was an OMG moment. I am now back for the Solid Gold Version. I plan on wearing this every day. I will attempt to apply it with a brush." —Louise

    Price: $16.50 (originally $22)

    15. Pearly Girl Vegan Teeth Whitening Pen deposits a bleach-free gel and a patented calcium complex that helps break up dark spots and stains, and thus uncover visibly whiter teeth, while also protecting tooth enamel, so even sensitive teeth folks can try it out.

    All you gotta do is twist the base of the pen to dispense the gel, brush for 30 seconds, let the product do its thing for 15 minutes before you eat or drink again, and then run the brush under warm water to get rid of excess gel. You can apply it up to four times a day!

    Promising review: "I am pleasingly shocked at how well this product works! I was not holding out much hope that my very-stained teeth would ever look nice again, short of spending a lot of $$$. I've used the product for three days now (three times a day), and there is a noticeable difference. My husband even commented that my smile was even more beautiful than usual (awww). The best part (aside from being vegan) is that it's not harsh on the teeth. nor does it cause that burning feeling some other products do. Will definitely be ordering more, apparently for my husband *and* myself." —Isis

    Price: $16.50 (originally $22)

    16. Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick doesn't play around when it comes to offering one of the most buttery and hydrating formulas around, and as you can see, it doesn't skimp on color either.

    @tartecosmetics / Via,

    Promising review: "Bought this in Rum Punch, and out of the 30+ lipsticks I own, I use this one the most. It's sooo buttery and full coverage. I'm surprised I don't hear about this lipstick more often from beauty gurus. Seriously the best lipstick!" —Jaime K.

    Price: $15.75 (originally $21; available in 22 shades)

    17. Drink of H20 Hydrating Boost Moisturizer quenches the thirstiest of skin cells with a hella cooling cocktail of hyaluronic acid, squalene, and electrolyte-balancing sea salts. Essentially, you won't able to keep your hands off of it.

    Promising review: "My face is allergic to 100% of the products I've used for the last 18 years, so when I found this moisturizer I was obviously skeptical, but I couldn't be happier! I have extremely sensitive, oily skin, so it's hard finding a moisturizer that won't make me look like an oil slick. This whole skincare line is the best I've ever used. I've bought it so many times since it came out, and my mom is in love too!!" —Kira

    Price: $29.25 (originally $39)

    18. Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer lightly defines your face with juuust the right deposit of warm, natural bronze — it blends like a dream, never looks too obvious, and holds for hours on end.

    Promising review: "This is the best bronzer, hands down. The tone is natural: it's neither orange or brown, but simply a warm, natural tan. The color goes on smoothly with zero streaking, and it's difficult to use too much, even if your brush is a bit overloaded. It blends so flawlessly, as to not scream, "I'm wearing bronzer!" I've used this on my quite fair, cool-toned winter complexion and lightly-tanned summer complexion, and it compliments both." —KatyCant

    Price: $22.50 (originally $30)

    19. Tight and Bright Clay Multi-Mask zones in on controlling oily, porous T-zones (purple goop), while hydrating dry or irritated areas like the cheeks and undereyes (gold goop), so you can customize your facial and really give your skin 👏 what 👏 it 👏 needs 👏.

    @tartecosmetics / Via,

    Promising review: "I love this mask! I've used it about once a week since I got it, and my skin feels so smooth and soft. I have combination skin, so this helps me focus on the different problem areas of my face. I also got sunburnt from the beach and started peeling pretty bad, but the mask actually helped get my face back to normal almost overnight." —Ariel

    Price: $30 (originally $40; available in 18 shades)

    20. Mermaid Waves Salt Spray is a beach day in a bottle — just a few spritzes and scrunches in damp hair, and you get lightly tousled waves that Ariel would be envious of.

    Promising review: "I didn't expect another salt spray to make any actual difference to my hair, but this one defines my long, wavy hair, and makes it look shiny and touchable." —Isabel M.

    Price: $16.50 (originally $22)

    21. Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette packs in the variety and versatility with 20 shades — that's 16 mattes and four iridescents for ya — that all have intense color payoff, buildability, and Amazonian clay for long, flake-resistant wear. Time to mix, match, and blend your way to makeup tutorial levels!

    @tartecosmetics / Via,

    Promising review: "I'm very new to eyeshadow. I bought this palette for my beginner stages and have been incredibly impressed. The colors are so versatile and come on very vibrant. I have found Tarte products to be such lifesavers when learning how to do my makeup." —Kestrel

    Price: $36.75 (originally $49)

    22. Cheek Stain lets you quickly dab your way to your preferred amount of flush — it's almost *too* easy to use. Plus, it has five kinds of antioxidant-rich fruit, so you know it's also beneficial for your skin!

    Promising review: "I've always worn blush, but as I get older my skin has gotten drier, and powder blush doesn't look at great or and doesn't last all day. This cheek stain is amazing! I put it on once in the morning and it lasts all day long — it doesn't streak, fade, or look blotchy. I only need a little bit to achieve the look I want, so my first purchase lasted about a year! This is hands-down the best cheek color I've ever used." —Toxey T.

    Price: $15 (originally $30; available in three shades)
