Tarte Special Edition Holiday QVC Amazonian Clay Blush Set Review & Swatches

Tarte Special Edition Holiday QVC Amazonian Clay Blush Set

It’s here! The Tarte Special Edition Holiday QVC Amazonian Clay Blush Set ($29) I’ve been teasing you with this month! Treasured, Imagined, Honored, and Meaningful are four shades of limited edition Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush that are included in the Tarte Royal Flush Holiday Blush Set being featured exclusively on this month!

Take a look!

Tarte Royal Flush Amazonian Blush Set

This set comes with four limited edition shades of Amazonian Clay Blush that are 0.053 oz in size. If you already have the Tarte Leave Her Blushing Set you likely have Honored, Imagined, and Treasured so in that case you might want to buy this set for Meaningful and just gift the other three colors to a friend.

Honored is a nude rose, Imagined is a candy pink, Treasured (my favorite, make it full size Tarte!) is a pretty orange melon, and Meaningful is a pink cherry. These all have the excellent, long wearing Amazonian Clay Blush formula that wears a solid twelve hours (beyond that really) without losing intensity of fading. The formula has a silky texture with an easy to apply and blend out texture. The blushes are beautifully pigmented as well.

I hope you’re as excited about it as I am.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    yaay and naai, they als seem pink to me , maybe I need something more in the brons side

  • Maria Allagianis

    I have so many blushes and yet somehow I don’t. I just seem to need more. LOL

  • Maria Allagianis

    Do you think it’s a good purchase? Are the colors cool toned or warm? Feeling very conflicted!

    • the Muse

      yes, it’s an excellent purchase. You get a bit of warm and cool in the set.

    • the Muse

      both are excellent values and sets allyson just depends what shades you prefer and packaging as the two are vastly different one is a clutch and this is single pots. the one from sephora is a touch warmer and this has a mix of cool and warm!

      • Maria Allagianis

        I am cool toned. DO you think the warmer blushed would work well with cool tones? Ugh damn you tarte, you did it again. I have more make-up then I actually want to admit to lol. Some people buy shoes and bags, I prefer makeup. They should have make-up addicts anonymous. LOL

        • the Muse

          i’m pretty cool toned too and they work for me! see the pics in the post ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m right there with you! I adore makeup/beauty ๐Ÿ˜€ lol yeah, I’ll be your fearless leader for that group!

    • Maria A

      Do you get a better deal when it goes live? Tell me you do, and I will just die

  • Maria Allagianis

    Tarte for the holidays should come out with minis and let us pick the colors we want. Maybe I will e-mail them and give them a though.

  • Winni

    Meh. I’m conflicted, too. These are tiny! A quarter the size of the regular blushes….then again, I rarely hit pan on the 765,456 blushes I have. What to do…….? In other news, I’m having another baby girl on Tuesday (csection b/c she is breech)! Now I’ll likely have 2 future beauty junkies to finance, lol.

  • Sara

    ordered! I couldn’t stand the packaging from the sephora set…..can’t wait to get it!

  • rebecca petruska

    I was all ready to order until I checked the colors. The set of 3 pot plus a brush on had same colors excluding Meaningful.

    I love the mini pots as a way to have tons of different colors.

  • Kaja Elisabeth

    I really hope I don’t regret skipping this. I really want to try their blushes, and I think I will wait for another set and save my money right now.

  • Jules

    Oh, I like this set with the separate containers sooo much better. That melon looks like so much fun for the summer months.

  • Kitsch Vixen

    I’m going to have to grab this set because I totally missed the Off The Cuff palette!

  • Vanessa

    Does QVC ever have their gift sets half price after xmas? I wondering if its worth waiting to buy when everything is on sale. Or do these sets often sell out before that?

    • the Muse

      never really seen a sale or clearance on qvc beauty products Vanessa they typically sale out before qvc can probably think of putting them on sale!

  • RxBeautyChic

    I was so sad that the Sephora one sold out ๐Ÿ™ Def ordering this one! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • amber m

    Planning to order this set…just as soon as I wipe the drool from my laptop. lol.

  • Linda Daniels

    I had to order this—Im in love with these blushes…..I find that whether I prefer cool or warm tones does not matter with these…..all of them look good on…….

  • Michelle

    Just lovely! Thanks for posting the swatches ๐Ÿ™‚ What lipstick are you wearing in the last image?

  • Tish

    Hi Muse, Do you have the new Tarte Holiday set from Ulta, Gorgeous Getaways Portable Palette Set?? Wondering how the Blush Colors compare to QVC’s Blush Set? Thanks!

    • the Muse

      i haven’t compared sorry…I haven’t even gotten around to opening the Ulta Holiday set as of yet.

  • becky

    I know this is a random question, but I need to choose between getting this set and the buxom serial kisser set. which one would you suggest?

    • the Muse

      did you want blushes or lipsticks becky? it’s two really different sets so maybe see what you’d like to add to your stash? do you already have a lot of brushes in that case get the buxom lipstick set…already have a lot of lipsticks? go with this set….

      • becky

        I’m a lipstick hoarder, but I love the tarte blushes! I caved and got the blushes instead, but I waited too long and now I’m on the waitlist :/

  • MariaTik

    I just it in today, and I am in love. I hope Tarte comes out with full size for all 4.

    • the Muse

      they launched three holiday blush sets and don’t have plans for more Maria.

  • Candace

    Thanks so much for this review. I’ve been contemplating if I should purchase this limited edition from QVC because Sephora solded out their limited edition one. I have a question, Do these blushes compliments deeper skin tones? I swatch a few in Sephora and they were amazing!

    • the Muse

      hi candace thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ yup, you shouldn’t have a prob with them on a deeper skin tone the only one that might be a bit sheer is Honored but really depends on deep your skin tone is of course!

  • Gloria

    Is this kit still available? I thought I got a tarte one with brush but I didn’t. I want this now…
