Review | tarte fantastic foursome

Today, I wanted to share a little review on the tarte fantastic foursome Amazonian clay Blush set. This is a limited edition holiday gift set that comes with four new half-size blush shades. The set retails for $35 and can be purchased at tarte or Sephora (though it appears to no longer be available online.)

I purchased this set in mid-October in-store at Sephora. Once I saw it, I immediately knew that I had to have it! I have been wanting to try the Amazonian clay blushes but didn't want to pay $25 for just one. Having to decided on what colour to pick would have resulted in hours of blank staring at the display....

The set comes with:
  • Angelic | A shimmering champagne. Perfect highlight colour
  • Fantastic | A matte bright pink
  • Magic | A matte coral/peach
  • Stellar | A shimmering light brown. Great as a blush or for bronzer/contouring.
These blushes are great quality. The colours stay true and last for hours. They are also easy to apply, going on smoothly, while being highly pigmented. My personal favourite is Angelic. I think it is such a great highlight colour! I love them all though and think they are great for anyone new to cheek products, as this has many staple colours, or someone who loves tarte blushes. I think the sizes are great; I don't think I could ever go through a full-size tarte blush! The only downside I see from this set is that the colours feel more spring/summer to me. The only one I have consistently used this fall is Angelic. I wish they had included a berry shade for the fall and winter months.

Overall, I would highly recommend this set for yourself or as a gift. I have been so impressed by all of the tarte's "Baby it's Bold Outside" holiday gift sets this year. I have several on my list (such as the Carried Away collector's set.) Holiday gift sets are just such a great way to try a bunch of different products. What holiday sets are on your wish list or gift-giving list this year?
