Tarte Thoughtful Treasures Set Review & Swatches
Get your twenty bucks ready and dish it out on the Tarte Thoughtful Treasures Set which includes a limited edition Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Thankful. The Tarte Thoughtful Treasures Set ($19) seems like such a cute little stocking stuffer for a friend or perhaps a gift for a Secret Santa but who am I kidding? You greedy little beauty junkies just want that limited edition Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush all for yourself, I know you do!
How do I know?
Because I’m a greedy bugger too!
This little selection of goodies is ready for gifting decked out in a gradient green and teal box with gold accents. Inside you’ll find a Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil that’s 0.23 oz in size, a Tarte Energy Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint that’s 0.06 oz, and a Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Thankful which is 0.05 oz.
Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil comes in a tiny glass jar with dropper. This amount will actually lasts you for a bit as the oil is quite potent and provides plenty of moisture with a few drops. It’s a facial oil much like Josie’s popular Argan Oil that absorbs easily while providing skin with plenty of hydration to prevent aging due to dryness. It’s supposed to be high in Vitamin C levels as well to brighten over time however, I’ve used it for a long time now and never really noticed the brightening effect. It does however, deliver plenty of moisture and is one of my staples for keeping my skin soft and smooth during the Winter months!
Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint is a new self adjusting shade of pink for lips and one of the only self adjusting colors that Tarte offers in their Lipsurgence Collection. They released it for the Spring 2013 season in its larger size. This smaller size is a swivel up design just like its bigger sister. It’s pleasantly lightweight with a moisturizing balm-y texture that keeps lips comfortably hydrated. It has a minty taste and scent. I gives my lips a delicate shade of pink (as you can see in my FOTD below) and doesn’t shade lips a crazy color of fuschia like most self adjusting lipglosses and products do.
Tarte Thankful Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is describe as a golden pink but personally I think it’s a bright apricot pink. I compared it to many shades in my own stash of blushes including:
- Natural Beauty
There are a few shades on that list they aren’t even anything PINK but I just listed them anyway just in case because folks will throw out an obscure shade at me and ask, “Is it a dupe of this tan color?” and I have to sit and think “eh?” so I just compared it to everything I own. If it isn’t on the list, I didn’t compare it to that shade I can’t tell you if it is or isn’t a dupe. To me it looks like a fairly new shade. It’s bright, apricot, and satiny with no shimmer or sparkle at all.
Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint and Tarte Thankful Blush
All in all the Tarte Thoughtful Treasures Set is adorable! One of the nicest parts about this particular set would be the lovely blush. I know like myself many of you collect these blushes because you love their texture, extra long wear, and gorgeous pigmentation. This alone makes the set worth it and on top of the blush you get two other lovely extras to play with!
