Today's post is a review on the Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay Blush Palette, which is one of my best finds this holiday season! I own one of the single Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush and it's one of my favourite blushes. In Sephora Malaysia, a piece (5.6g) costs RM120 , and this set comes with 5 blushes (5 x 4.5g = 22.5g) for only RM159.
This set comes with five new and limited edition blush shades: Breathless, Embraced, Whimsy, Bashful, and Irreplaceable. Breathless is a light baby pink with no shimmer. Embraced is a berry shade with shimmer (perfect winter blush!), Whimsy is a light, cool-toned pink with no shimmer, Bashful is a light, peachy-orange with shimmer, and Irreplaceable is a medium neutral-pink with no shimmer.
I love that this palette is very versatile - you have your pinks, your berry shade, a peachy-orange and also a neutral blush, so it can match whatever look you have on. The quality of the blushes are phenomenal - they're super smooth, pigmented, and last all day. This is no surprise to me because like I said, these are one of my favourite blushes ever. My favourite shades from this palette would have to be Embraced, and Irreplaceable because I love my neutral/berry-toned blush.
The packaging of the palette.. I can't decide if I love it, or absolutely hate it. When the palette is closed, the packaging doesn't look good.. at all. I guess they were going for a golden shimmery pouch/purse kinda look, but the gold glitters turned out really bad. The look patchy, and makes the palette look dirty. However, once you open the palette, it's absolutely gorgeous! But, to open it, you need to push on the gold "button" to unclasp and lift the palette. The clasp feels tacky, and doesn't work all that well (or now that I think about it, maybe I got a bad one?). The palette that houses the blush pans is a dark royal purple colour, encased with a beautiful gold rim, There is an actual mirror too (not the small ones that are pointless in certain palettes), you actually get a huge mirror.
This blush, to me, is a huge bargain! I love the shades and the formula of the blushes. Because I love them so much, I am going to look past the packaging and say I'm in love with the whole palette all-in-all, and definitely my favourite holiday purchase so far!
Did you get this palette? What's your favourite holiday purchase so far?
