Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Palette Color Wheel for Holiday 2016 - Swatches

Hi Beauties,

Every year Tarte releases a blush palette for the holidays that typically contain 5 blush shades but this year they've outdone themselves.  The limited edition palette contains ten (yes 10!) blush and highlight shades in a double sided compact called a blush wheel.   The palette retails for $57 CND and $44 USD and is currently sold out on Tarte.com but can be found at Sephora.

The compact has a beautiful purple and gold art deco design on the cover which corresponds with the 'Works of Tarte' holiday collection theme.   

The palette contains mattes, lusters and two pearlescent highlighters with a mix of five warm and five cool shades.  You can  mix and match shades to create a custom look.  Powered by tarteโ€™s long-wearing Amazonian clay formula, the blushes are very long wearing.

Limited-edition shades include:

  • concept (pink nude)
  • icon (dusty rose)             
  • montage (pink mauve) 
  • ironic (berry rose)          
  • crafty (pale pink shimmer) - Highlighter
  • mod (peachy coral)        
  • deco (poppy pink)
  • surreal (hot pink)
  • culture (coral shimmer)
  • idol (nude shimmer) - Highlighter

I'm marveling at this years packaging.  To my surprise, it is not heavy or bulky.  It's quite the opposite, sleek and light; making it very travel friendly.    I love the colour range of the blush and highlight shades and you can customize it to suite a variety of skin tones.  I did notice some colours needed some building to get a good pigmentation.  Some of the shades seem similar to previous year's blush palettes.  For what It is worth, I think it is a great value for the price.  If you love Tarte formulas or looking to up your blush stash, this is a great purchase.

Anyone planning to pick this up?  Don't wait before it sells out!
