Tarte's Holiday Blush Set

I planned on posting this before Christmas but life got in the way with my trip to Hawaii but better late than never right? I've said this once but I'll say it again- I am a TOTAL sucker for the limited edition gift sets during the holiday season. I end up buying way more makeup & skincare products than I actually need. Take for example, Tarte's Chic to Cheek Holiday 2014 Blush Set. Yes, 2014. I bought this last Christmas and it completely fell off my radar until I recently cleaned out my drawers. This year they released a similar one, At First Blush Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush Set. I'm going to resist the 2015 set (given my 2014 is brand new) but it's definitely worth the purchase! I'll review the 2014 set but you'll get the same gist for the set released this year.

These blushes are smaller than the full sized ones but they are still a great size opportunity for someone who hasn't used Tartes blushes before and to try out a variety of colors. The colors that came with my set include Daydream, Amour, Prim, and Classic. They are beautiful shades of nude and pink and blend like butter! All the colors are a true matte except for the color Amour that has a slight not not tacky shimmer to it. I want to say this is similar to NARS Orgasm blush. We have entered the post-holiday season but if you can still get your hands on Tarte's holiday blush set, I'd do so right away. If not, I'd keep a close eye on it this year as it seems they release one every year. The blushes are sized generously and gives you the opportunity to try multiple colors from their line!
