Tarte recently launched this holiday season’s limited edition blush palette – 8 shades of blushes and 2 highlighters for $57 CAD!
- $57 CAD
- 8 blushes (0.084 oz/ 2.4 g each)
- 2 highlighters (0.084 oz/ 2.4 g each)
It features Tarte’s Amazonian clay blush formula – one of my personal favourite blush formulas on the market – in a double-sided palette with an array of tones.
I got last year’s palette, and have been hoarding it for the past year as it’s one of my favourite purchases of all time. I nearly skipped this year’s, as online the colours appear super bright and bold. Don’t let the online photos fool you – they are much softer and more neutral in person!
The packaging is gorgeous and vibrant, inspired by Moroccan textures and designs. One of my favourite aspects of these palettes is how sleek and compact they are. If you love to travel and want to bring a variety of shades with you, this is the perfect palette for that.
The shades offer a mixture of warm to cool, with a texture range of mattes, micro-shimmers, and satins.
These swatches were applied with the fingers, so you can see the true colour built up on the skin. Applied with a brush they will be much softer on the skin of course!
- Angelic: deep peach-toned pink
- Fortunate: brighter, warm-toned peachy pink
- Skillful: deep cool-toned berry pink
- Exhilarating: a bright fuscia pink
- Authentic: berry-toned pink
- Endless: raspberry pink
- Dainty: warm pink
- Extraordinary: warm coral with gold shimmer
- Whimsical: mid toned shimmery gold
- Worthy: pale pink with fine shimmer
The textures are all smooth and blendable, and they look so natural on the skin. I can wear these for a solid 8 hours before they start to fade a bit on my skin (though my oily skin eats up all colour and powder, for someone with normal to dry this likely won’t be a problem.)
I am so happy I decided to get this year’s blush palette! Personally I find the shades more wearble than last years, and I love every shade! My favourites are definitely Skillful, Angelic, and Dainty.
