NEW! Tarte Fantastic Foursome Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Enthusiast Set!

Today, I have an amazing Holiday set to share with you all: The Tarte Fantastic Foursome Blush Set! If you are a blush addict like myself, you are not going to want to pass this up. Tarte blushes are some of my favorite blushes! They are smooth without being crumbly, pigmented, but not overly so, and last all day! This set includes 4 great travel-size shades that are all new and exclusive to this set!

This set comes housed in fairly nice and festive Holiday packing of shiny gold and coral.
The phrase "Baby It's Bold Outside" is written on the back of the box with To/From tags, making it ready for gifting.

The blushes in this set are not full-size Tarte blushes. Full size Tarte blushes contain 5.6g (0.2oz) of product and retail for $25 each. These blushes contain 3.03g (0.1oz) of product, making them about half the size of the full-size blushes. This set retails for $35, which means for $10 more than 1 full-sized Tarte blush, you are getting the equivalent of 2 full-sized blushes worth of product and 4 different colors. 
I don't mind the smaller sizes and appreciate that there is more variety of blush, since I love this particular formula!
The blushes included are named Fantastic, Magic, Angelic, and Stellar. I think this set includes a great shade variety. There are two bright colors, a pink and a coral, as well as a neutral color and a highlight shade.
All Tarte Amazonian-Clay powder blushes have a beautiful amazon river logo design embossed in the powder.
 Angelic is a shimmering champagne. This highlight shade leaves a beautiful white-gold sheen on the cheeks. It looks like it contains some micro glitter, but I didn't notice any glitter once applied.
 Fantastic is described as a soft fuschia, but it is more of a matte neon bright pink. Although it may look a little scary, when applied lightly, it gives the cheeks a natural flush as if you've been out in the cold.
 Magic is a matte true coral. It has even amounts of peach and pink and applies beautifully. This and Fantastic would also make great summertime blushes.
Last is Stellar, a shimmering nude. This is a perfect blush to pair with dramatic eyes and/or lips because it adds warmth to the face without overwhelming it. This blush could also double-up as a shimmery bronzer to add a tan glow in the summertime. This shade did have noticeable glitter, but it isn't chunky or fall-out prone on the cheeks.

Overall, I highly recommend this blush set because Tarte blushes are some of the best quality blushes I've come across, and you get to try a great variety of shades in this kit. This would make a great gift for someone just starting out with makeup, any blush lover, and especially for those with an extensive Tarte blush collection! This set is sold out on the Sephora website, but is still available on You might still be able to find it in some Sephora stores, although I'd call ahead because I haven't seen a single set in stores recently.

What's your favorite blush brand? :)
