Hey ladies! The holidays are upon us and as many of you probably know, a bunch of cosmetic companies have realeased stunning holiday gift sets and I am obsessed! This year Tarte released the limited edition Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush Palette. I've attached the pictures and swatches below!
This is the outside packaging. It is designed to look like a cute holiday clutch. It is a metallic gold pleather clutch with lavender print and it comes with two little bobby pins. They are cute but I would certainly get no use out of them. I personally am not that big of a fan of the clutch idea. I mean no one would actually carry around a clutch of blushes. If it had a pocket in the clutch for a lipgloss or lipstick and enough room for a little brush then it might be a bit more convenient. But as for right now, its not the most suitable packaging for storing neatly.
Tarte's 12 hour amazonian clay blushes are some of the best blushes on the market. Their colours are stunning and buttery to the touch. They are super pigmented and they blend really well. The best factor is that they are truly long lasting. Blush usually fade on me after a couple hours but these guys really held up the whole day!
This is a picture with flash.
Here are the swatches! They are so stunning, they are mostly satin finishes, some have more of a sheen than others. The colours names from left to right are: Breathless, Embraced, Whimsy, Bashful, and Irreplaceable. All new shades!
Overall I give this palette a 7/10
Blushes are absolutely phenominal but the packaging kinda ruins it for me. I would have preferred if it was in a slim cardboard type packaging instead.
That's all for this review, hopefully it was helpful for anyone interested in this palette!
