Tarte Stroke of Midnight Brush Set

Many of you know that Tarte is one of my all time favorite high end brands!

I could go on and on about how much I love their products, but I will spare you! 🙂

When I saw Tarte had released a limited edition brush set, I knew I had to get my hands on it and give it a try.


$44 for 5 brushes


This was a limited edition set that was released with the Tarte 2015 Holiday Collection.

The set includes:

  • The Buffer Airbrush Finish Foundation Brush
  • Concealer Brush
  • Eye shadow Brush
  • Complexion Brush
  • Blush Brush


I immediately loved the gold handles and thought they looked so elegant.  But I was a bit disappointed with the weight and feel of the handles.  They were much lighter and seemed less “high end” than I was expecting.


The actual brushes themselves are of great quality and that is really what matters.


The Buffer Airbrush Foundation Brush:


I have not used this to apply my foundation as of yet.  I can see it working well but the size is much too large for my liking.  I prefer using it with my powder foundations or to buff foundation in once it’s already been applied.


Concealer Brush:

 I love using this to get into those hard to reach areas (around the nose, inner corner of eye etc.)

You could also use this to pack on eye shadow or even to contour since it is angled.


Eye shadow Brush:

This is your typical eye shadow brush.  It works just fine but I didn’t find it to be anything special.


Complexion Brush:

This is a great stippling brush.  The bristles are soft yet sturdy and it blends my foundation in easily and quickly.


Blush Brush:

 I personally hate using this to apply blush.  It’s just too flimsy for me.  But…I do love using it to apply my highlighter or to set my under eye area.  It is perfectly soft and light!


All in all..this set isn’t exactly what I was expecting, but I think it is an amazing value.  I use all the brushes (almost) daily and know they will hold up and last a long time!


What are your thoughts on this set?  Does it seem worth the high price tag in your opinion?


Wishing you a beautiful and wonderful day!
