The best time of the year for makeup shopping is during the holiday season. There are lot of value kits and F&F sales to take advantage of. And right now I happen to be in a palette face deporting all my MAC and other blusher and eye shadows to palettes. I find that this way I don’t forget some of my makeup for a very long time and also inspires me to try on different makeup styles daily. I have been lusting after the Tarte Amazonian clay 12 hr. blushes for some time now. I wanted so many shades from the range and at $29 a piece they aren’t exactly affordable hoarding. So as soon as I saw this palette offering from Tarte I knew I had to have it. And here it is!
The set contains 4 blushes and a bronzer; not to forget the bow bracelet that came with the kit! The bracelet is actually quite beautiful and wearable unlike the free ones we usually see with such value kits.
The blushes included are Doll face, Dazzled, Darling, Crave and the Bronzer-Park Ave Princess (0.158oz) each.
Doll face: A bright light pink shade with blue undertones Dazzled: A soft plum rose shade Darling: A nude melon shade Crave: A Pink Peach shade Park Ave Princess: Bronzer
I find the blushes and the bronzer to be extremely pigmented, smooth and long lasting. It blends easily, does not go patchy and stays strong and vibrant for nearly 8 hrs. on me. (That’s how long I have tested them.)
I am equally happy about the colors chosen for the palette. Each one is different and wearable. In fact there isn’t a single blush in the palette that will not receive my love.
Overall Tarte off the cuff amazonian clay blush palette is one of the best Holiday sets this year, a well thought and put together cheek palette. Those of you who love Amazonian Clay blushes or are pondering about venturing, I think this is the way to go!
