I am so excited to share with you Tarte's new limited edition blush palette wheel. I picked this up from Sephora for only $44!!!!! SO cheap. I decided to start shopping around for a good blush palette this past week because I have been wanting to fill in the gaps in my makeup collection. Blush is one of the few things that I haven't dove into fully and I wanted a palette with ranging shades and finishes. This palette was IT. Between these 10 shades there are mattes, lustres and two highlighters.
Although pretty, the packaging is not my favorite. I like the double-sided wheel thing but I'm not into the purple front. But I'm not big on packaging anyway so it's not a huge deal for me.
Do you see how beautifully these swatch? I am just in awe. I was totally telling myself that I was going to return this before I even received it in the mail because I thought that I was wasting my money on something that wouldn't be very good quality. For the record, I am no longer going to return it.
Here are the shades swatched on my arm with the names alongside. My photo two above shows the shades a little more true, so look there. Then check out the one with the names.
From Tarte's website, here are the kinds of colors we're dealing with:
- Mod is a peach coral
- Deco is a poppy pink
- Surreal is a hot pink
- Culture is a coral shimmer (so pretty. coral with gold is my favorite)
- Idol is a nude shimmer
- Icon is a dusty rose
- Montage is a pink mauve
- Ironic is a dusty rose
- Crafty barely shows up on my arm because it's a very light, pale pink shimmer
- and Concept is a pink nude
I can't get over how pigmented these are and I'm really excited to branch out from my MAC 'Melba' blush that I pair with every single look that I wear. If you're in need of a large variety of cheek shades, DEFINITELY pick this palette up.
