Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Palette Review, Swatches, Photos
So you been wanting to try Tarina’s Blush line but can’t decide on a single shade and not wanting to indulge in several full size? No worries, that’s where the new Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Palette comes into play. Variety, value, and oh so pretty.
I think you need it.
I earlier suspected that these were full size blushes as Sephora posted they were but just a note the size of each blush is 0.12 oz versus a full size of 0.2 oz. Sephora had it listed incorrectly and I related that info to you but just wanted to confirm the actual size per blush.
The compact features four shades of Tarina’s Dollskin Cheek Blush and is $45. It’s a nice palette since it offers a variety of shades and the price is pretty friendly at $45 versus purchasing a single shade at $25. Why pay $25 for a single shade when you can get four?
The best part about the palette for me is the addition of the shade Parasol. It’s truly my HG (holy grail) shade of peachy coral. It’s a gorgeous shade that makes my face glow.
All the colors included are as follows:
- Candy Cameo (shimmery pink)
- Feather (shimmery peach)
- Carved Rose (cool vivid pink)
- Parasol (shimmery pink/ peach)
(Swatched Left to Right: Candy Cameo, Carved Rose, Feather, Parasol)
The compact comes in a slick gunmetal mirrored compact. It’s about the size of a CD case and features a huge mirror inside which makes it ideal for longer travel and trips as you can have four shades of blush at your fingertips and a rather nicely sized mirror to apply them with. I kinda wished they included a brush as well to go along with the compact. The compact feels sturdy enough to toss in your makeup bag as well but it is a magnet for fingerprints.
I’ve reviewed the blushes in a pass post so I won’t go into a great deal of details about them but I will say they are nicely pigmented, silky, and blend easily. Some of the shades add a real glow to skin and in my opinion there simply aren’t enough blushes in my collection that give my skin a beautiful glow.
Overall, Tarina gives us a simple way to enjoy a variety of her blush shades in a beautiful compact. I personally loved this one and felt like it was a great deal. The blushes are some of my favorite formulas out there and I’ve spent a good deal of time raving them when I originally purchased Parasol on the launch about a year or two ago. Not much has changed since, these are just fabulous all around.
If you’ve been wanting to splurge but simply couldn’t decide which color to get, now it’s easy enough to own several without spending triple the cost.
Muse Approved for purchase.

P.S. Final Fantasy XIII 2, ’nuff said. And I’m pretty excited about the new Sims….*blush* although I draw the line at the extra $10 bucks it would cost to own the Katy Perry version, sheesh girlfriend has her name on everything lately, slow down sister!
