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!
The Manizer Sisters joins forces and make an appearance as a trio in the new the Balm The Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection Palette! The new the Balm The Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection Palette brings together the outrageous Mary-Lou Manizer guilty of creating an innocent honey hued highlight on cheeks and face for a more youthful look, the notorious Betty-Lou Manizer wanted for faking the bake by giving your cheeks and face a golden bronze faux sun kissed finish, and Cindy-Lou Manizer on the loose for giving cheeks and face a light-reflecting peachy pink splash of color.
I actually have all these femme fatales in my collection already but having them all in one easy travel friendly palette is fabulous!
Tarte Energy Noir Clay Palette ($38) is a new eye and cheek palette that launched with the Tarte Fall 2015 Collection recently.
Tarte’s legendary for introducing palettes that feature an array of either neutral, natural shades or purples, their signature color. The Tarte Energy Noir Clay Palette definitely focuses on taupes and purples for Fall looks. We’re seeing a lot of matte, some contouring, and either a completely nude eye or a soft metallic one for Fall 2015 but Tarte actually veers off the trend path and heads into a more traditional shade look with these shades. Purple and berries seem to speak of the Fall season and the shades in this palette do deliver those particularly trendy shades if that’s the look you love for the season!
It’s funny as purples and taupe-y shades go so well together but my eyes are aging now and they don’t always look great on me. My brown eyes look great in the shades but it’s my under eyes that end up look a little tired when I’m wearing such dark, sultry shades!
