Fact: I have not yet even swatched two makeup sets/palettes I've purchased, and it's been nearly a year since I bought one of them. I love the inviting appearance of a set but I have to love and use everything in it to buy it; I have specific makeup needs (a deep matte the crease, blush/lip shades that are more neutral/bright rather than warm, etc) and not may sets suit me. However, Achiote Collection is so pretty, so workable, such a delicious color, I haven't stopped using it! I have a couple square Tarte depotted eye shadows but other than that I've never owned Tarte products. When I saw this reviewed, swatched and applied on Gouldylox.com and musingsofamuse.com, I knew this was made for me! Set includes:
1. Amazonian Clay Blush in Achiote
2. Lip Surgence Lip Luster " "
3. Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss " "
"Achiote" is the most GORGEOUS ripe rosey coral color and each of these three products share this shade with different finishes. While orange is the color of the year, this is a very practical, very flattering version for me. Combined, this old mug 'o mine looks SO healthy and fresh and pretty, omg! I love doing a taupe or muted purple eye with these shades. Perhaps that's why this set appeals to me so...one is free to do any kind of eye look with it and I love matchy-matchy lips and cheeks! The blush is matte, pigmented and blends on perfectly; the Lip Surgence - my first of this type of product (have since purchased a Revlon Just Bitten balm/stain) - has a bit of shimmer and one can control the depth of the shade by application...it feels lovely on the lips and lasts; the Divine Lip Luster is a bit pinker than the other two products but is the perfect compliment and finishing touch to the blush and lip stain. Yes, I will be repurchasing, either by set or individual product. The set is $42 at Ulta and QVC, which is a great deal considering the individual prices for these products and also that the shades are LE. Here's an indication of how much I love this set: I PAID FULL PRICE AT ULTA! lol
Look at this color - to die for!
PLEASE TARTE, ADD THESE SHADES TO YOUR PERMANENT COLLECTION! And make more sets like this for the Holidays!
