Tarte "Fantastic Foursome Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush Enthusiast Set"


I got this a long time ago because last year when I wanted a holiday set, they were sold out by the time my mom was ready to order. This year, I wasn't going to let that happen so I ordered mine way back in October. I picked up this and the Lipsurgence set (coming next). I figured I should do these posts before the holiday season is over and you can't get them anymore!

I am a blush enthusiast so this set was absolutely perfect for me. They are not full sized, but pack a lot of product in them. For reference, a full sized blush has 0.2 ounces and these each have 0.1 ounces of product.

 This set comes with a highlighter, a bronzer/blush (I use it as both), a coral color and a bright pink.


Starting from the top right, there is Angelic, Stellar, Magic and Fantastic. I love that the packaging reflects what is on the inside. I mix up my Nars blushes all the time because I don't know which is which until I look on the back. It's just a nice addition that makes blush searching a bit more simple.

Angelic is a champagne highlighter. It is more subtle than most of my other highlighters, but it is nicely pigmented. I use this on days that my skin doesn't need that much of a shine. It's more natural looking.

Stellar is a light brown with some shimmer in it. I'm relatively fair skinned, so this could easily be a bronzer on me. However, I do like the look of it as a blush as well. Since I already have a matte bronzer, I prefer to use this as a blush because it has shimmer in it. You can use it as you please.

Magic is a matte coral blush. I haven't worn this much because to me it is more of a spring/summer blush, but the color is nice and it was very smooth.

Fantastic is a blue toned bubblegum pink. I like wearing this on days where I'm wearing neutral or dark colors to bring color to my cheeks. This is more pink rather than Dollface, which is a lot more natural looking.

All of these colors wear for my whole school day on me. Toward the end of the 8 hour mark they start to wear off a little bit, but that could be due to me not wearing a primer/finishing spray.

If you like blushes, this is a good set for you. But if you are new to makeup and want some variety, I recommend this as well! The retail price is 35 dollars for all of this set! This is a perfect gift for someone (or yourself).
