Spoilers: Tarte Hints at a Blush Set for Holiday 2013

Tarte is hinting at a possible Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush for Holiday 2013 on Instagram today much like the Fantastic Foursome Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush we saw last year.

Tarte Fantastic Foursome Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Enthusiast Set

I’d say we have very little time to start worrying about Holiday Collection as I imagine by the end of September plenty of info will be rotating around the website for beauty and makeup Holiday 2013 Collections and Gift Sets.

What sort of things are you wishing for this Holiday season?

Some monster palette? Gloss sets? Something new and interesting?

From which brands?

Do share!

P.S. This was an excuse to post a River Song spoiler video from youTube. What? She says it in such a deliciously juvenile way! How can you not love it?
