Tarte Home for the Holidaze Collector’s Set & Portable Palette ($49) is a another larger cheek, eye, and lip palettes that arrives with the Tarte Holiday 2015 Collection. The Tarte Home for the Holidaze Collector’s Set & Portable Palette actually takes things back to days of old with a more traditional look to the eyeshadows that are available in this set. I don’t know how long you’ve been using or collecting Tarte but the square shape of the shadows in this set are reminiscent of older sets like old Tarte The Royal Collection, Tarte the Big Thrill Color Collection, and the Tarte Jewelry Box.
You know it’s a funny thing about those sets. I brought them up for a reason because the Tarte Home for the Holidaze Collector’s Set & Portable Palette, although nearly the same price ($49 versus the $48 price tag on most of these past sets), there’s actually a lot less product in this set. For example, The Big Thrill Set contained four blushes at 0.16 oz each where as the Home for the Holidaze Set also contains four blushes but at 0.158 oz each. There’s still a lot of product in this set but I find it interesting how although the price has stayed the same, but the amount of product has dramatically changed.
Let’s take a look at the Tarte Home for the Holidaze Collector’s Set & Portable Palette.
The Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set & Portable Palettes ($49) is a new, limited edition Holiday set that launched with the Tarte Holiday 2015 Collection that’s available exclusively at Ulta.
Tarte does several very large palettes and gift sets everything year for the Holidays and they are always, in my opinion, an excellent value for your buck. This year the Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set & Portable Palettes is a little different from prior years If you recall the Tarte Away Oui Go Portable Palette & Collectors Set from Tarte Holiday 2014 and the Tarte Gorgeous Getaways Portable Palette Set from Tarte Holiday 2013 all had removable quads which could be housed in a single portable palette that you could tote around with you or travel with while leaving behind the rest of the items in the set.
This year the Great Glitz Collector’s Set & Portable Palettes are more packaged more like the Too Faced Le Belle Carousel Set which features removable travel friendly palettes. Yes, you do in fact get a big (and perhaps you might consider it bulky) jewelry box with a pull out drawer and a flip top lid but inside you’ll get three different removable (and smaller) eye and cheek palettes!
No secret here, I love chubby little lip pencils and better yet budget friendly ones! The Black Opal Color Stick Lip ($7.95) is a new, limited edition online exclusive twist up chubby lip pencil that give lips a burst of gorgeous creamy color.
I’m loving on these!
Chubby lip pencil lovers rejoice as there’s a new kid on the block to try out! As you know German brand Catrice recently launched at Ulta and with that collection the Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm Pencils (5.99) also arrived.
These chubby little lip pencils are budget friendly and available in a selection of seven shades.

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Lip Pencils ($6.50) are a new variation of the beloved Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in a new style packaging that launched within Australia and Asia (I don’t believe these are available in Europe as yet but feel free to correct me if they are). Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow are the fourth product to join the Maybelline Baby Lips family which now includes the original Baby Lips Lip Balm plus Baby Lips Lipgloss and of course, Baby Skin Primer! I’m still waiting for Baby Skin Blush to pop up somewhere, sometime soon!
