Tarte Gorgeous Getaways Gift Set Review

Hey Everyone! Today I am going to be doing a review on a great holiday gift set that I recently purchased from Ulta. I hope you guys enjoy this review and feel free to leave comments below or on my Facebook or Twitter!

Tarte Gorgeous Getaways Gift Set

All of the shadows, blushes, and lip glosses are packaged in a gift gift box. When you open the lid of the gift box you have all of the eye shadow quads that are magnetized in the set, then there is a drawer that pulls out that houses the three lip glosses and the compact. The gift box itself is a purple color with gold flowers printed on it. The set retails for $48.00 and says that you are getting over $433.00 retail value. This set is a great set, if not one of the better sets that Tarte has released, just based on the variety of makeup that you receive. 

The set is divided up into quads that contain one blush and four eye shadows. I like this because you can just pop the quads out and place them in the compact, this makes this set a very travel friendly set. I also really enjoy how the names of all of the shades are printed on the bottom of each quad, this makes it super easy to know which shades you like the best in case you are interested in purchasing the full size of a particular shade. 

This gift set includes 16 Full Size Amazonian Clay Eye shadows in Limited Edition Shades, 4 Full Size Amazonian Clay Blushes in 4 New Shades, 3 Full Size Maracuja Lip glosses in 4 New Shades, and a Portable Compact. 

The eye shadows are all very pigmented and are very soft, they apply smooth almost like butter when applied to the lids. They are very easy to blend, which is nice when you are trying to create a smokey eye look. The lip glosses are all very, very high shine and are not sticky at all. The color pay off of the lip glosses are sheer, but you can build them up to get the right amount of color that you are trying to achieve. All of these glosses smell very minty, which is nice and it's not to over powering. 

The eye shadows are as follows:

Quad #1
Taj Mahal - Shimmer Champagne Shade
Grand Canyon - Matte Peachy Skin Tone Shade
Big Ben - Matte Muted Grey Shade
Central Park - Matte Hunter/ Forest Green Shade

Quad #2
Serengeti Sand- Shimmer Pale Pink Shade

Quad #4

The Blushes are as Follows:

Spontaneous (quad #3)
Lighthearted (quad #4)

Lip Glosses are as Follows:

When in Rome - Coral with Shimmer
Czech Me Out - Mauve Pink, Your Lips But Better with Shimmer

Overall this is a great purchase for any makeup lover. The amount of quality product that you get for the price is amazing. I would recommend this for anyone to add to their collection. This gift set would also make an amazing gift for anyone for the holidays as they would enjoy each shade. All the shades are very wearable and you can create sooooo many different looks.
