Yesterday, I posted my haul from Sephora & have already reviewed Benefit's High Flyin' Glosses. Today, I will review Tarte's amazing blush set for the Holidays. It is called the Fantastic Foursome 4-Piece Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Enthusiast Set, which is a really long title. Anyway, this consists of four brand new Tarte blushes. These are not full-sized, but they are half of a full-sized blush.
It's been dim all morning since there is no sun this morning so I'm sorry about the swatches if they're very low-lighted. These were all very smooth, but I felt like Angelic and Stellar did not show up on my skin as well as Magic and Fantastic did. Angelic is more of a shimmery highlighter and Stellar is more of a shimmery bronzer than a blush. What I noticed about Angelic is that the packaging for that is kind of rough, while the others are a smooth kind of plastic. Magic is a coral shade and Fantastic is a light fuchsia. I really like Magic because it is not like a shade I own and Fantastic kind of reminds me of Gaiety from NARS.
Some comparisons to the full-sized ones
Overall, I feel like this is a good deal not only for people who do not own a lot of Tarte blushes, but for people who own many of them since these are all new shades. Although they are half-sized, I feel like it is still a good deal considering one full-sized itself is $25 for 0.20oz, while this set is $35 for 4 0.10oz blushes, which makes this a $50 value (even though the box states $60 value). They are very smooth and although Angelic and Stellar needed a few swipes to show up on my skin, I think it's understandable since they are more of a highlighter and bronzer, which highlighters and bronzers do not show up on me well. I like how these are half-sized since I am a blush hoarder I will never finish my blushes anyway so these will last me a while. I love how it is almost the Holidays & all these amazing sets are coming out! These would be perfect for personal use if you love blushes, but it would also be perfect as stocking stuffers since they're mini sized :)
