Last September, I received this Tarte blush and lipstick from AA as a pasalubong from the States. I love receiving make up and other beauty products as gifts (I mentioned this many many times before ha ha ha) and this one is no exception.
Tarte’s How Sweet It Is set includes an Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush and a Lipsurgence Laip Tint, both in the shade “Sweet”. I believe this was limited edition. This particular shade/combo is perfect for the summer.
The blush is very pretty. The pinky-peach shade is very flattering especially on suntanned skin and the slight golden shimmer gives you that fresh vavavoom glow (which in my book is always a good thing). I love the packaging, and the logo embossing on the blush.
The lipstick is alright. The shade is pretty too, and the way it is packaged makes it easy to apply but there is a slight minty medicine-like smell that is a little off-putting. This would have been really nice if it didn’t smell so odd.
I have not tried any of Tarte’s blushes and lipsticks before, so this was a great starter set. I am very curious about the Amazonian Clay blushes so I might end up getting more of those. I am a pretty big fan of their eyeshadows especially the original Tartelette Palette, so I am curious to see if I will love their cheek range as much as I do their eye stuff!
