If there ‘s only ONE thing you can get during the Sephora Friends & Family Sale next week, then make it the Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Palette($50).
YOU NEED IT. This is my best beauty buy pick for the holiday season! I mean, it’s BLUSH, so that’s a no-brainer for me! But these blushes are SO GOOD. BETTER than last year’s holiday palette that’s for sure and that one was really nice. Truth be told, I hardly use last year’s as it’s a little too coral and warm for me. But this one? I’ve been wearing it non-stop since it arrived. It’s pinky blush perfection and I am in love! The Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette has five brand-new, Amazonian clay-infused blushes and two cute hair pins—all encased inside of a Parisian-inspired clutch. It’s a little bulky to be honest. It really is the size of a clutch purse. I so wanted to take it with me to California last week, but I didn’t because I thought it was too big. I MISSED IT. Next time I go anywhere, it’s coming with me for sure.
The shades are Breathless (pinky beige matte), Embraced (plummy rose with shimmers), Whimsy (light matte pink), Bashful (rosy peach with a sheen), and Irreplaceable (mauve rose matte).
I am OBSESSED with that Breathless blush! It’s a blush, yet it’s almost a bronzer-it’s my favourite!
Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette Swatchy Time!
Now, I don’t wear the shades in the Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Palette by themselves. I like mixing them together like a Mad Blush Scientist. I’ll show you my two favourite combos. The first one is Breathless with Whimsy on the apples. This is my glowy, bronzy beach look, which is actually my everyday makeup lately: NARS Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska, a cream eyeshadow, bronzer, a pinky lipstick, and blush. Always blush! And man, I love that Breathless blush so much!
In the next pic, I’m wearing more eye makeup(rare for me these days but I was testing products) with the blush Embraced and just a touch of Irreplaceable on the apples because that one is really pigmented! So pretty though! Oh and I actually used a blow dryer too LOL. It’s SO HARD. I don’t know how you guys do it all the time hahaha-I think I want to cut my hair shorter… longer hair is too much work!
What I love is how easy the blushes in The Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Palette are to work with. They are really soft and kick up a little, so don’t go swirling your blush brush in there like a blush maniac. DIP IT BABY. You don’t need much on your brush anyways. They blend like a dream and just melt into the skin. And they GLOW as you can see. This is a perfect palette and I HIGHLY recommend it! You can order it here!
What’s the last blush you fell in love with? Tell me! I love blush love stories!
