Tarte Magic Star Holiday 2017 Collector’s Set ($49.00 for 1.23 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette that includes four cheek colors, two lip colors, eyeliner, mascara, and 25 eyeshadows.

First Impressions

I saw little that was promising in the set as several of the mattes had dry, stiff consistencies that required product to be scraped off to transfer any coverage to my arm to show a swatch. Other mattes were sheer, not that buildable, and took extra effort to blend out. The shimmers were decent but some were dry to the touch and often applied unevenly, lifted as I blended them, or otherwise lost intensity on the lid. They were all prone to fading faster than the average eyeshadow from the few I wore for testing longevity. There’s a good chance this palette gets pushed to the bottom of my priority list, but I’ve been keeping up fairly well with the holiday releases so there may still be a full, in-depth review in the future.

Blush Bliss

Tarte Blush Bliss 4-Pan Blush Palette ($39.00 for 0.80 oz.) has four shades of warmer-toned blushes–two peach/corals and two pink-based shades. The palette had two really lovely blushes while the other two were less pigmented and shorter wearing, so it was a bit of a mixed bag. I imagine if one doesn’t mind more buildable coverage (while simultaneously enjoying pigmented blush!), then the downsides won’t be deal-breakers. I wish there was more differentiation between the shades, since there are only four; it would have nicer to see perhaps a mid-tone coral, deep copper-brown, muted plum, and a vibrant pink.

Value

A full-sized Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush retails for $29.00 and contains 0.20 oz. or costs $145.00/oz. The palette contains $116.00 worth of blush.

Goddess Glow

Tarte Goddess Glow Holiday 2017 Highlighter ($35.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling sheen. This has noticeable sparkle to it, so if you are not a fan of more glittery highlighters, then this is most definitely not going to work for you. On the other hand, if the more sparkle the better in your book, then perhaps you’ll enjoy the finish.

The compact is massive–it’s a whopping 0.42 oz. of product–but it is to the point of being unnecessarily large for most people (it will take eons to get through this one, even if used on its own all year!). According to Tarte, the powder is supposed to “build a natural radiance or blinding strobe” with a “silky, weightless powder” with “pigment [that] builds effortlessly.” The finish was more buildable than the pigmentation from my experience; the powder was loosely pressed and a bit dry, so I just did not find the pigmentation built up much with layering, but it did appear more metallic and even more sparkly with two to three layers on the skin. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage (built up) that did emphasize my skin’s natural texture somewhat. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before becoming a little patchy.

Tarte Blush Bazaar Amazonian Clay Blush Palette ($44.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette that is “double-sided” and contains 10 powder cheek colors (two are more like highlighters, eight are more traditional blush colors). I think if you tend to enjoy Tarte’s blushes, I imagine this won’t disappoint; I am not a huge fan of them as I do not find them as blendable as ideal nor as long-wearing as the brand claims (though they make a longer claim than most brands!). I think that Tarte could do better at variety in undertone and finish–a few shades looked less differentiated once applied to my skin, and the palette ran rather warm-toned on the whole.

Value

A full-sized Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush retails for $29.00 and contains 0.20 oz. or costs $145.00/oz. The palette contains $121.80 worth of blush.

Buried Treasure

Tarte Buried Treasure Holiady 2017 Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features 10 shades in the “new Rainforest of the Sea formula.” Per Tarte, the formula is supposed to be blendable, “velvety,” and “primes lids for payoff.” They have a very smooth, velvety texture with moderate powderiness and a tendency to “melt” on the lids, which meant shorter wear due to noticeable fading between four and six hours. That same powderiness also resulted in color that sheered out a lot and tended to make the lid appear drier, and it was harder to layer the mattes on top of each other without then lifting whatever was underneath (or nearby). There was potential here, but unless applied over a tacky base, it was a miss.
