Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set

Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector's Set
Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set

Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set ($49.00 for 1.23 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows, three blushes, travel-sized mascara, and a twist-up jumbo lip crayon. It’s a mixed bag; some are nice, some are duds, and some are somewhere in-between. It’s a lot of product for your money, so if the shades appeal to you, and you generally like Tarte’s formula and typically wear a primer, it might be worth looking at. They are more dupable shades than not, and you’ll find some shades are similar (enough) to past Tarte releases. I liked how the palettes were separate from the packaging, so you can easily ditch the exterior (with the sequins), though that’s obviously a lot of waste. They could have made this a lot slimmer by skipping the lip crayon and mascara, as that is all that is contained in the drawer!

MAC’s Powder Blush formula is supposed to be easy to apply, long-wearing, and have “fantastic colour.” It’s hard to generalize for MAC’s blush formula, because it varies a lot from shade to shade, even within different types of finishes! Some of them are very good, others are so-so, and a few are complete misses. The more frosted/shimmery shades tend to have the softest and smoothest textures and are easier to apply and blend out on the skin, while more satin and matte shades can sometimes be powdery, firm, or stiff, which makes blending more challenging. The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average. Fever is intensely pigmented with a soft, fairly blendable texture that doesn’t look totally flat on skin; it’s mostly matte, but I find it produces a natural finish once buffed and blended out. This shade lasted for nine hours on me.

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic” with a “flattering radiance” and “silky texture.” The pigmentation ranges from semi-sheer to fully opaque, depending on technique and skin tone, but it seemed exactly as described–buildable–without having to pile it on or spend too long sheering it out. It had an extremely smooth, silky consistency that blended out beautifully on the skin while yielding a soft sheen that didn’t emphasize pores but added a lovely glow to the skin. On me, the blush lasted for eight hours before it started to fade.

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic” with a “flattering radiance” and “silky texture.” The texture is very soft, silky, but it is on the thinner side and gets to be somewhat dusty. I don’t think it looks dry or powdery on the skin (though I have relatively normal skin at the moment), so you may just want to take greater care when swirling a brush in the pan to avoid too much excess powder kicking up. The color blended well on the skin, and it had semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage. On my warmer complexion, it ended up looking more coral as the yellow undertones in my skin tone came through, but it may look pinker on those with pinker undertones. The blush wore well for seven hours on me.

MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish formula is supposed to add “highlight to the face and body” with a “velvety soft” texture and “radiant finish.” Gold Deposit has noticeable sparkles in it, which gave the texture a more crumbly, gritty consistency–it just wasn’t as smooth as some of the Mineralize face products. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was easily applied more heavily or with a lighter hand to adjust the coverage. It has a metallic, high-shine finish that emphasize pores slightly on my skin, so it may be one that doesn’t appeal to everyone. My best tip is to apply with a fan brush, which will help you build up the shimmer better. The color lasted for seven and a half hours before starting to turn patchy.

MAC’s Mineralize Blush formula is supposed to be a “blush that builds lightly” that has a lightweight feel and “luminous colour.” Petal Power was previously a limited edition shade, I believe, and it was added to the permanent line-up. I repurchased to see whether it had changed at all since its original launch, and I noticed it was significantly lighter and pinker in its permanent iteration (enough that they could be two different colors, really!). It had semi-opaque to totally opaque color payoff with a lightly dusty consistency that felt smooth and didn’t look powdery on the skin. This particular shade has a lot of shimmer, and it appears more metallic with a shiny finish on the skin, which did emphasize pores for me. On my skin, the color lasted for seven hours before breaking down.
