Tarte Off the Cuff Blush Palette
Tarte Off the Cuff Blush Palette ($42.00 for 0.79 oz.) includes four blushes and one bronzer. It just sold out sometime between yesterday and today (last I checked, it was still available) online, so your only bet is to find it at a local store. Three of the five shades are part of the permanent range (Dazzled, Dollface, and Park Ave. Princess). Tarte’s blushes are normally 0.20 oz. each, and these are 0.158 oz., which is close. The set contains $81 worth of blush and $14 worth of bronzer, plus a faux leather cuff with a bow on top, but it contains $95 worth of makeup in it. Overall, all five products are nicely pigmented, and though a few are a little powdery at times, they sit well on the skin and blend out beautifully. If you can find the set, it is worth checking out. Tarte’s blushes, to be sure, though, do not wear the full 12-hours as promised, but they wear nicely at eight to nine hours, on average.
I had a feeling it might sell out, and unfortunately, I didn’t receive this until late last week. I haven’t even tested all of the blushes, but since it’s sold out, I’m not reviewing this in full–instead, I’m sharing photos and swatches so if you’re able to head to a store, you might still be able to snag it. Otherwise, check out the dupes for each.
Crave is a warm-toned, pink-coral with a satin finish. It had nice pigmentation, and the consistency was soft without being powdery. See comparison swatches.
Dazzled is a warm, muted rose with a hint of berry and a satin finish. The color payoff was quite nice, and the texture was soft and silky without being powdery. See comparison swatches.
Darling is a medium peach with a rosy tinge and a mostly matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and the texture was silky and soft, just a bit powdery. See comparison swatches.
Dollface is a cool, blue-based, light-medium pink with a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was very soft–a smidgen powdery. See comparison swatches.
Park Ave. Princess is warm-toned, golden brown with a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff and applied smoothly and evenly. See comparison swatches.
