Does anyone else find miniature things exciting? I do, especially if its a mini lip gloss or balm, or any mini makeup item for that matter. And when they’re in a set all the better! Recently Tarte released their limited-edition Sweet Dreams Holiday Collection and they kindly sent me the Chic to Cheek and Kiss & Belle sets to check out. Ahh!! Mini lip tints! If the minis get you going like they do me, you’re going to want to add this to your holiday wish list!
First, the packaging. So gorgeous! Any girl or girly woman that receives one of these will be so happy. They look like something a box of French macaroons would arrive in…and actually this collection is inspired by Paris, so there ya go. The prices peel right off, by the way.
Chic to Cheek deluxe Amazonian clay blush set
These are actually mini too, though you can only really tell if you set them beside Tarte’s regular blush compacts (I don’t own one but saw them in Sephora the other day). These little compacts are SO pretty! I love the gold filigree design on top and these shades are super feminine. They are supposed to last 12 hours, and though I’ve never timed it, they last a pretty long time. They don’t have mirrors because they’re mini but this is a nice set to try out a few different shades and the price is great. *pearls not included.
They’re formulated without: parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and gluten. I also don’t see talc on their ingredients list.

Kiss & Belle deluxe LipSurgence lip set
Again, beautiful packaging. Tres beau. This set makes me so happy…its only $34 and has 8 little lip products in it, they all have limited edition pretty gold caps, and well, they’re just so darn cute! Plus the product inside is lovely. They are creamy, lightweight, and moisturizing. The lip tints smell lightly of peppermint which is nice and refreshing, and the glosses smell lightly of vanilla. I like that this set includes a variety of textures – 4 lip tints, 2 matte lip tints, and 2 lip glosses.
Formulated without: parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and gluten.
Look how cute they fit in a teacup!
