Tarte Awaken Your Complexion 4-Piece Customizable Complexion Kit

The Tarte Awaken Your Complexion 4-Piece Customizable Complexion Kit ($32, $58 value) includes a full size Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, Bamboo Concealer Brush, deluxe size Pure Maracuja Oil and deluxe size Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder. It's available in 8 shades. I chose Medium, which is good for under my eyes and highlighting. I am considering buying another in Medium Tan to cover redness and blemishes on my face.

The packaging it says the Tarte technique is to apply 2-3 drops of oil to your hands and press onto dry skin, under/around eyes, corners of nose and mouth and neck, squeeze concealer onto brush and apply to skin. However, Maureen Kelly (founder) states that the oil should be used as a nighttime moisturizer only. I tried the Tarte technique, but I preferred to warm up the concealer on the back of my hand with my finger and press it under my eyes. I think you should use a powder to set it or you will see fine lines after a while. This concealer is very thick, it's hard to squeeze from the tube, but it has wonderful creamy coverage.

Maracuja Oil is awesome, lots of people prefer it to Argan Oil, but I can't say I like one more than the other. I think they're both great. Maracuja absorbs faster. The powder is fine and colorless.
