We’re edging closer and closer to Friday folks, yay!
Today I have my first (I think) holiday post of the year featuring the tarte Limited-Edition Treasure Box Collector’s Set. This set includes 24 Amazonian Clay Eyeshadows, 2 Amazonian Clay Blushes, 2 Amazonian Clay Bronzers, 1 Amazonian Clay Highlighter, a full-size Sex Kitten Eyeliner, a mini Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara and a mini tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint.
The palette comes in a pink, gold, purple and black designed box which opens up on both sides to reveal the eyeshadows and cheek items. Then open the flap on the left side to reveal the eyeliner, mascara, lip paint and a small mirror.
First eight shadows over primer.
Middle eight shadows over primer.
Last eight shadows over primer.
Blushes, Bronzers and Highlighter over primer.
Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Deep Rose and Sex Kitten Eyeliner.
I found these shadows to be pretty nicely pigmented and even over a primer. A couple of the darkest mattes were a little bit patchy though (deep brown and black.) The blushes and bronzers and highlighter are all really nice and pigmented and smooth. The Lip Paint is a pretty deep rose shade and Sex Kitten is a very black liner shade.
What do you think about these kinds of “fancier” swatches? Yes or no? I cannot decide if I like them or not. I like the way they look but I don’t know if they are large enough to give you a good idea of what the shades really look like. Let me know!
You can find the tarte Limited-Edition Treasure Box Collector’s Set at Sephora and it’s $59.00 (a $433.00 value.)
Is this set something you or someone you know may be interested in?
