Tarte Pin Up Girl Blusher Palette | Review

Monday, 15 December 2014

Hello Beauties! As they did last year, Tarte have released another limited edition blush palette as part of their holiday collection, the Tarte Pin Up Girl Palette. Unfortunately, as these are only sold in the US I never managed to get my hands on last years, so this year I made it my mission to get my hands on it. 

The Tarte Pin Up Girl Palette comes in a golden creamy palette designed to look like a clutch. It also has a gold and lilac band across the top which comes with two really pretty hair slides. I love sparkly, girly hair slides for clipping the front of my hair back so I'm happy that Tarte included them as a little extra with this palette. I know this packaging has received a lot of hate for being too tacky and unnecessarily bulky but I actually quite like it. I dont mind having a few bulkier palettes in my collection and as it has 5 quite expensive blushers inside, I like that the packaging is bulky and padded as I know the blushers are protected. 

The palette contains the shades (L-R): Breathless, Embraced, Whimsy, Bashful and Irreplaceable. 

Breathless is a beautiful beige colour with pink undertones which works beautifully as a contour/blush for those days when you don't want to go for a full on contoured look. I don't currently have anything else like this in my collection so I'm pleased that Tarte have included this one, as it isn't necessarily something that I would pick up as a single blusher. 

Embraced is a beautiful plum colour which I think would be perfect for the Winter months. I don't really own any plum or autumn blushers so I've been wearing this one non stop in the past couple of days. Embraced also has a lovely sheen to it to perk up your cheeks on those cold winter days. 

Whimsy is a light pink shade and my favourite of the bunch. It's a matte blusher in a medium pink colour and it's definitely the type of blusher I usually go for and is similar to the other Tarte blushers in my collection. Although I have a couple of shades similar to this, I'm still happy that it was included in the palette as the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushers are my favourite formula to wear. 

Bashful is a lovely rosy peach shade with a slight sheen which I think will be perfect for the summer. I currently already own their Amazonian Clay Blush in Captivating which is a similar shade, but slightly more peachy toned and matte so I think this is another great option to have for the summer. 

Irreplaceable is a semi-matte mauve rose colour and unlike anything else I have in my collection. It's not a shade I would usually go for but I'm so glad Tarte have included this shade as it looks perfect with winter make up and is a great subtle blush to pair with a cat eye. 

Now lets talk about the formula, I adore the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushers and the ones in these palette are no exception. They are super blend-able and amazingly pigmented meaning that a little goes a long way. If you ever get the change to try some of the Tarte blushers I really recommend that you do, if your a blusher fan like myself you won't be able to help yourself from picking up a few!

Overall, I love this palette (if you couldn't already tell!). It has a varied colour selection meaning that its perfect for creating a number of different looks and its a chance to really try out the Tarte blushers and all of the finishes that they do. If your into your blushers I really recommend picking this up, you won't look back! However, these are only available in the US (sorry UK readers!) and they are selling out fast, but if you can get it online anywhere (I've seen a couple on Amazon) then go for it!

Lots of Love,
