I recently picked up the cute Tarte How Sweet It Is Set ($14) from Ulta.com which includes a Tarte Sweet Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush and a Tarte Sweet Lipsurgence Lip Tint. Anyone who loves Tarte Glisten Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush will adore the Sweet Blush! It’s a gorgeous shimmering peachy pink that’s perfect for Summer.
Have a look!
I was a little worried about the Tarte How Sweet It Is Set because lately Tarte’s blush formula is a little lacking in palettes they release. I find the textures very dense and a bit on the drier side compared to individual pans. So yeah, I was a little skeptical about this set and worried the smaller size would perhaps suffer a bit in formula.
But not the case at all! This is a delightful texture with excellent pigmentation and wear and just as delightful as a larger size Tarte Amazonian Blush! The blush is a deluxe 0.05 oz which is identical in size to the Tarte Holiday Collection Blush Sets such as the Tarte Chic to Cheek Amazonian Blush Set that released with the Tarte Holiday 2014 Collection.

I can see myself hitting pan on this shade as I really love it. Hopefully they release it in a larger size at some point and make it permanent because personally I feel like Tarte really excels at creating gorgeous glow-y shades of blush but sadly it feels like the Amazonian Blush Collection lacks such shades. On the upside, if you run out, no need to sob yourself silly as the shade is quite a lot like Tarte Glisten. It seemed a touch more pink and lighter versus the apricot of Glisten but the shades are very, very close in color.
Tarte Sweet Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
The formula is excellent and gives cheeks a gorgeous luminous glow. The color is a beautiful shimmering golden pink but not a NARS Orgasm dupe in the least as this leans towards being way more pink where as Orgasm is more peach. The color wears strongly for a solid 12 hours as promised with a denser top layer but a silkier one beneath. It’s small yes, but the size doesn’t forsake the quality and it’s just as good as the larger size Tarte Blush shades!
Tarte Sweet Lipsurgence Lip Tint
Also included in this set you’ll get a 0.06 Tarte Sweet Lipsurgence Lip Tint which is a perfect match for the golden pinky peach of the Sweet Blush! This is a smidge darker than the blush and gives lips a shimmering golden pink! Lovely to say the least. The Lip Tint formula is one of my favs! It has a balm-y consistency that adds a nice bit of moisture to lips. It does have a peppermint taste and flavor that I find pleasant but sensitive users might not love this.
At $14, the Tarte How Sweet It Is Set is a total beauty budget star! Yes, Sweet is a lot like Glisten but honestly I don’t mind in the least as this is my favorite shade of blush and more is always fine by me. This also happens to be a nice set for Tarte newbies as it gives you a chance to try out some of their products without laying out a ton of cash. I’m quite happy that the quality is here too as I’m always a little skeptical of little sets like this as sometimes they skimp on the quality but no worries, quality is excellent (Made in the USA).
