But before I get super backlogged with posts, I thought I would post a review and swatches for a set of blushes that came out for the holiday!
The tarte Fantastic Foursome 4-Piece Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Enthusiast Set (what a mouth full!) contains 4 blushes for $35. The full sized blushes are $25 so these are quite a deal!
- Angelic was my highlighter used on my nose, under eyes, cupid's bow and chin.
- Stellar was used to contour my cheeks.
- Magic was applied on my cheek over Stellar to be my main blush color.
- Fantastic was stippled lightly on top of Magic and Stellar to give a light glow.
What concerned me a bit was that I did actually have to reapply these blushes again after the initial application. These are supposed to be long-wearing shades (hence the 12-hour in the name), but I felt that it didn't last as long as the full-sized ones usually do. I was quite oily on the day where I tested them out though (it was very hot out), which would probably have been the cause for them to not be as long wear.
I would recommend these for people who don't have quite oily skin or for use in the winter time. I felt the wear wasn't quite as comparable as the normal formula. These shades are quite beautiful though, especially Angelic! I hope they will make it a permanent shade in the future.
