Holiday Gift Guide - Tarte Fantastic Foursome 4-peice Amazonian Clay 12-hourBlush Enthusiast Set

Here is another awesome and much coveted gift set from one of my favorite brands - Tarte!  This set features 4 mini (0.1 oz) Amazonian Clay blushes.  The regular size blushes (0.2 oz) retail for $25 each but this set is $35 for 4 amazing blushes (well 3 blushes, 1 highlighter).  Actually one of the blushes could be used as a bronzer/contour powder...but either way, you get 4 awesome shades in an amazing formulation.  And I love that these shades are universally flattering.  In this set, you get the shade Angelic, which is described as shimmering champagne (shimmer); Fantastic, soft fuchsia (matte); Magic, pink coral (matte); and Stellar, shimmering nude (shimmer).  These shades do seem to be limited edition and not part of their regular collection so I would get your hands on them as soon as you can before they sell out!

I do love these blushes - just like their full size counterparts they seem to adjust to your skin needs.  If you have dry skin, they help to moisturize your parched skin.  If you have oily skin, they help to mattify your skin.  These blushes are supposed to wear 12 hours and I have to say that they do deliver in pigmentation and wear.  And as always, Tarte products are formulated WITHOUT parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan.  Gotta love "good for you" make-up products!  I have had my eye on this set on the Sephora site for quite some time but every time I checked the site, this set was always sold out (and still currently is sold out).  But I was able to pick up this set on the Tarte site without any problems.  What a great gift set to give a make up addict or maybe for yourself!  Whoever you want to get one for, better get it fast before they sell out!

Happy Shopping...
Sorry, my lighting gives a yellowish cast to all of the shades!
