This is the time of year that the doldrums set in.  We’re over Valentine’s Day and tired of winter. There is no better perk me up than exploring a new make-up line from a name we trust! Sugar Rush, from Tarte, is just the thing to brighten your day, it’s easy on your wallet, and gives you the peace of mind of being cruelty free and vegan. The packaging is ultra-feminine, and recyclable, in pretty shades of pink and purple pastels. The best thing is that there is no item over $30 and the products are small enough to pack for Spring break, girl’s night out, or to be used as party favors for a bridal party.


The line includes 17 items, including Tarte’s 4-in1 Lights, Camera Lashes mascara mini. The scents, and the names, of the Sugar Rush line are as sweet as the name implies. There is a lip butter that smells like angel food cake (yum!) and body butter aptly named Cake Butter that smells like cake! Sugar Rush’s lip oils and balms are equally delicious. Their sheer lip oil mini, with its jumbo applicator, comes in a raspberry sugar cookie flavor while the Sugar Rush, Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick Mini, in a wonderful neutral shade suited for anyone, has a sweet vanilla scent.

Let’s not forget the excitement in opening a new eyeshadow palette and Sugar Rush delivery! There are two palettes to chose from. There’s the Keep Calm, Sunnies on Eyeshadow palette and the Sweet Slice Eye & Cheek palette. Keep Calm is a desert hued palette of creamy shimmers and mattes that give you a beach glow that’s perfect in the boardroom or poolside. Sweet Slice has seven eyeshadows, three matte and three shimmers, and one blush. This palette comes in warm, rose hues with a dusty peach colored blush that creates the perfect sun-kissed look.

Sugar Rush can help you complete your look with the perfect scent. Sugar Spritz Body Spray and Vacay Day Fragrance Rollerball will have you smelling as fantastic as you look. Sugar Spritz comes in a fruity floral scent while Vacay Day combines the exotic scents of mandarin and jasmine into the perfect tropical scent.

What’s better than an affordable line of make-up that is cruelty-free, vegan, and comes in recyclable packaging? The same company having a way to scrub up and get clean! Sugar Rush not only has face wash and moisturizer but a cute dual-head face scrubber. One side has massaging nubs while the other has soft bristles that are prefect for lathering. This cute starred shaped brush pairs with Sugar Rush’s Squeezy Clean citrus fragranced facial cleanser. Finish off with Don’t Hate, Hydrate non-clogging moisturizer.

Whether you’re looking for a new shade of shadow, a sweet pick-me-up, or prepping for spring break, Tarte’s Sugar Rush sister brand has the perfect, and affordable option for you.
