When I was waltzing through ULTA I settled upon the The Big Thrill Limited-Edition Color Collection…Palette…Box…Set? Whatever it is, it had both glosses & blushes…the things I was looking to buy. There were tons of sets to choose from but for $48 I figured this one was the best value for me. That is less than 2 of the blushes on their own! Considering I can’t even get close to hitting pan on the mini TARTE Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollhouse…I figured this was a better deal.
Let’s start at layer #1 which is the 16 of Tarte’s signature square eye shadows infused with Amazonian clay. In the package, we’ll go left to right from top to bottom.
The shades I still need to work with are definitely Cloud 9, Next Level Lilac, & Clay Crush.
Favorites for both pigmentation & shade in general are Exquisite Emerald, Brilliant Bronze, Go For Green, & Jump For Juniper.
Layer #2 is the cheek products also left to right.
Left to right: TARTE Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Ave Princess, TARTE Amazonian Clay Blushes in Angelic, Curious, & Thrilled.
I adore each one of these, absolutely no cons here. I only wish I owned more!
& the last layer is a drawer with 3 glosses tucked inside.
Left to right: TARTE Vitamin Infused Lipgloss in Strawberry Sensation, Apple-A-Day, & Abra-Cad-Apricot.
Great shade variety while still being super wearable shades. Each one smells like their name as well, a bit plus for me! Great feeling on the lips & decent lasting power as well.
I stick by the pros. This is a great value with amazing products. I will find a way to use every single one. However, the cons are relevant. This is a bulky package & besides the glosses nothing is detachable. I think it is safe to say I won’t be traveling with these shadows or blushes which is a real shame. It is also not the easiest to store. Even with those issues, I don’t regret buying it at all & am happy to make room in my stash.For only $48, you get a set worth $435…so my complaints are pretty much nil in that shadow.
What do you guys think of this set? If you want to pick it up, I urge you to do it quickly, I don’t know when they will sell out & it is ULTA exclusive. Out of all the sets I have seen at Sephora & ULTA, this is still my favorite. I would have loved to have grabbed the For The Love Of Lipgloss 15-Piece Maracuja Lipgloss Collector’s Set & a few more things. If only I were able to afford to swatch it all right? Let me know if you want to see eye looks with this set or anything else, I did these swatches fast so you could get a peek!
