So, this is one of Tartes 2016 holiday items and I have been eyeing this since I first heard of it. I don't need anymore blushes but this was too beautiful to pass up. It retails for $44 and comes with 0.084 oz x 10.
SOME COMPARISONS CONCERNING SIZES OF PANS...
Full Size Tarte Blush: 0.20 oz
Tarte Amazonian Clay Palette : 0.084 oz (each pan/ ten pans total)
Tarte Deluxe/Travel size Blush: 0.05 oz
So, the pans in the Amazonian Clay Blush Color Wheel Palette actually have more than the travel sized Tarte pans although it's pretty hard to tell just by looking at it.
DECO: warm pink coral
SURREAL: light cool toned baby pink
CULTURE: warm bronze rose with gold shimmer
IDOL: warm, light gold with shimmer finish
ICON: neutral mauve
MONTAGE: neutral rose
IRONIC: medium-dark rose with plum tones ( would have liked to see more pigment, looked too similar to MONTAGE)
CRAFTY: cool toned, champagne with a shimmer and microglitter finish (love this one!)
Overall, I really like the color selection except for Ironic. I expected for it have more pigment and be a little more plum. I also felt that ICON, MONTAGE and IRONIC could have had a little more distinction between them. They are too similar when you compare them to the upper half of the blush palette which don't appear similar at all when compared to each other. I really liked the formula on these blushes. There wasn't as much kickup as I have experienced in past holiday blush palettes. I really, really love how this palette was organized. I felt that the upper half had more summer and spring colors while the lower half had more fall and winter colors. CRAFTY is sooo beautiful by the way! I am really glad they chose some highlights into the palettes this year! :)
HOW DOES THIS YEARS BLUSH PALETTE COMPARE TO PREVIOUS BLUSH PALETTES?
I like this years palette better just because there is more variety and more product. I can live without another mirror. I, personally, don't see myself taking this traveling because I don't see myself using this many different blushes on a trip lol
-great gift for holidays
-better price value than previous years
-palette is labeled with blush names
-shape of palette is difficult to store
-some similar shades within palette
Will you picking up this palette? Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend! :)
