Mondays can be rough, and if you’re an avid member of the Sunday scaries crew you know the start of the week is kinda the most dreadful thing ever sometimes. But today, my friends, is not just any plain ol’ boring Monday—at least, it’s certainly not for beauty lovers. Why is that, you might ask? Because Tarte’s Family and Friends sale has officially kicked off and the deals are literally so good. We’re taking 30% off the entire site with no exceptions from now until March 11, good. And if that’s not enough to jump-start your week and shrug off that frown (and turn it upside down), we don’t know what is.
Alright, technically, Tarte’s sale started yesterday—but if you were too busy watching the new episode of The Last of Us or you spent the day scrolling on TikTok, tuning out the outside world, you miiiight have missed it, and that’s totally okay. After all, that’s why we’re here and friends don’t let friends miss out on deals that will save them some coin on the products they were planning on buying anyway (like that viral lip balm and blush it seems every influencer owns). To access the sale and unlock makeup heaven, use promo code FAM30 at checkout and watch the numbers go down before your eyes—you call it markdowns, we call it magic.
We’d be remiss not to drive home the fact that Tarte’s best-selling Shape Tape concealer and Face Tape foundation are also included in the sale (remember, there are no promo exclusions!). Back in 2018, around 780,000 people on Instagram proclaimed that Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer (available in 36 different shades) was one of the best formulas on the market. Five years later, its mega fan base has only grown since then and the creamy, semi-matte formula continues to be a bestseller and a staple in cabinets everywhere. That’s all to say that if you’re someone who uses this bb religiously, now is the perfect time to stock up or grab one for your bestie.
In addition to Tarte’s hero products, the brand’s newest releases are also some we recommend having on your radar. Products like the Blush Tape are just starting to blow up over on the clock app, so if you wanna beat the internet rush you probably should grab it before it’s sold out for months on end (TikTok is gunna TikTok every time, you know?). And then there’s this gorgeous Maneater After Dark Eyeshadow Palette…and the Maracuja Tinted Moisturizer…and the Sculpt Tape contour…and the—like we said before, we’d like one of everything, thank you very much!
