|Tarte Blush Bazaar Palette (Holiday 2017)|
Tarte usually releases these double-sided blush palettes for the holiday season. Doesn't it seem like brands have been releasing their holiday collections earlier and earlier as the years go buy? Last year, I didn't pick up Tarte Blush palette and regretted it. I knew this year, I would pick one up as soon as it released at Sephora.
This limited edition palette comes with 8 blushes and 2 highlighters. It ranges from warm to cool tones and has pretty much every blush shade I will ever need. It is also great to travel with. The palette came with a plastic sheet in the middle to cover both sides of the blushes. I removed it from the palette, but kept it for travel. You also have both matte and micro shimmer finishes.
Tarte is a brand that I'm very loyal to, and I love their blushes. They wear very well on my skin and I don't find them too pigmented where I'm afraid to touch the brush to my cheek. These clay blushes are packed tightly and I use a stiffer brush to pick them up. This palette was no different from what I normally expect from a Tarte blush. The highlighters also work much better with a stiffer brush. The shades are really gorgeous on the skin.
The packaging is really pretty, and comes in the familiar Tarte Gold packaging. It does feel more plastic-like but not cheap feeling. It still is weighty. It's clearly not the same quality as usual, but I have no complaints. The value that you get in this palette for 10 blushes and highlighters is great.
