Giveaway! Tarte Puttin’ On The Glitz – My Newest Obsession!

Tarte had a phenomenal year in 2011 as far as I’m concerned. The LipSurgence lip crayons won a Prime Beauty award, the Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blushes made my Best of 2011 list, the Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eye Shadows make eyes simply shine. Late in the year entered Tarte Puttin’ On The Glitz, a limited edition color collection plus a glam clutch. This is no throw-away clutch–the silver python design with a gold chain handle is really cute and take-out-in-public worthy! Along with the clutch, the set comes with three interchangeable palettes each with six eye shadows and a face powder plus a maracuja-infused lip gloss in a pretty pink shade.  Now for the genius part—each palette snaps into the clutch so you have a complete on-the-go palette! The clutch also has a mirror and four credit card slots. But wait, there’s more! The kit also comes with instructions for different looks for each of the three palettes in case you need inspiration.

A Walk in the Park is a mix of cool and warm easy-to-wear natural shades including Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in darling (a soft shimmering coral pink). Love this shade!

Girl’s Night Out is a mix of vivid mattes and silver spun shimmers complete with Amazonian clay shimmering powder in champagne.

I did a quick look using this palette:

Nine to Five features not-so-quiet rich colors paired with traditional neutrals and tarte’s best-selling Park Ave. Princess Amazonian clay bronzer inside for a fresh faced healthy glow. This has been my HG bronzer for the past 3 years!

Overall Thoughts:What an awesome idea! Convenient snap-in palettes, 18 beautiful high quality eye shadows ranging from matte to satin to shimmer finishes, a blush, a bronzer, highlighter and a pretty gloss. This is also a tremendous value at only $48 for the entire set. These will sell out quickly so don’t wait to purchase!
