I am so glad I read the previous review that this pan can be depotted to my magnetic palette, but I took a tweezer trying to pry it out directly and nicked my pan! Then I saw there was an open slot on the north end of the package where you can insert the tweezer to pop the pan away from the magnet. GENIUS.
I got both this and the Dior Amber Diamond at the same time, but I reach for this more... this is not as finely milled and easier to pickup w/ the brush (so be careful, you heavy handers), and I don't have to go w/ multiple sweeps as w/ the Dior. But now the pan depottability, which makes it a go to for my magnetic palette used for travelling, would make it my repurchase!

Tarte Amazonian Clay shimmering powder in Champagne is a beige shimmer powder that can be used as a cheek highlighter or a highlight for under the brow bone. This retails for $30 for 9 grams of product and is available anywhere Tarte is sold, such as Sephora, Ulta, QVC and beauty.com
For starters, I love the packaging. It's in a soft leatherette casing that has a quilted pattern on the top, with Tarte embossed in it. Beneath the quilting, the compact is plastic that is closed with magnets on the left and right next to the powder. Inside you will find that the compact has a mirror and on the botton portion is the powder. The best thing about this packaging is that it is designed to be depotted and repotted if you deem that necessary. All I did was turn it over and give it a light tap and the powder just popped right out because it's held on by a magnet. This is desirable if you want to put it in a free form palette such as Z, unii or anothersoul.
Onto the product itself, I love the beige shimmer. It's a very universal shade that i believe can be used on all skintones and it lasts all day. I generally apply this at about 8 or 9 in the morning and I don't have to reapply this all day. When I get home from work, I still have full glowy shimmer. This to me, alone, makes it well worth the $30 but I probably wouldn't spend any more than that on a highlighting product. Like I said before, they give you 9g of product and that is huge when you consider that you only dab it a little bit on top of your cheeks. I really do like this product.
overall, I would purchase this again if I ever need to but i feel like I won't ever need to, considering how much product is in the package. While it is a little bit pricey, I personally believe the price is worth it. Drugstore highlighters just don't do it for me. it's long lasting, wearable on many different skin tones and versatile.

Gives a very subtle glow, very natural and buildable, but it was really nothing worth $30. I've tried a few ds luminizers with a equal effect, wouldn't purchase because of the price.
