Last time I was at Sephora, I noticed that some of the holiday launches were starting to come out. I checked out a few different items but once my eyes landed on this blush palette from Tarte, and that there were only 2 left, I knew I had to snatch one up. Tarte blushes are one of the most raved-about products in the beauty blogger/vlogger community from the last couple of years. I only have 1 Tarte blush and it's in the Aqualillies Eye & Cheek palette from Summer 2013, so I was really excited to add 5 more to my collection! A single Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush is 0.2oz and costs $31 (CAD), and for this palette you get 5 blushes that are 0.15oz/ea. for $50 (CAD) - so less than the price of 2 single blushes!

Tarte brought out 5 brand new shades for this palette ranging from neutral browns, to pinks, to peaches, and in a variation of different finishes. From left to right, the shades are Breathless (pinky beige), Embraced (plummy rose), Whimsy (light pink), Bashful (rosy peach), and Irreplacable (mauve rose). All 5 blushes swatched wonderfully and had fantastic textures. The last 2 blushes I'll have to be careful to apply lightly since I am quite fair, but the pigmentation is fantastic!

The packaging is in a slightly plush, cushioned clutch-like packaging with a snap closure. The snap closure is a bit wobbly when I open the palette but I don't think it'll break or come apart. There is a mirror in the top of the palette but it doesn't stand up on its own so it's not incredibly useful. The palette also came with two decorative bobby pins which are really pretty and could be used for some holiday hairstyles!

Overall I am really happy with this purchase and I think it's a great value. Essentially each blush here is $10/ea. since the palette is $50. If you're looking to try some new blushes this fall or winter I'd highly suggest checking this palette out!

  1. I'm really digging that deeper shade at the end - Irreplaceable. It looks like it'd be very autumn-appropriate.
    I've been wanting to try a Tarte blush but I could never decide which one, I think I might pick this up!
