Tarte Achiote Color Collection
Every so often the makeup gods send down to earth a wonderful makeup set that is beautiful and universally flattering. I am so thrilled with my Tarte Gifts From The Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection ($42). This is one of the prettiest, most natural makeup sets I have ever owned. The set comes with a blush, a lipsurgence (tinted lip balm), and lip gloss. The colors lean warm and would be flattering on light, medium, and deep skin tones. When swatched it's like a pink/red/peach all rolled into one. Tarte describes it as a honeysuckle color. It's so beautiful.
Normally, I really do not like to wear heavy makeup and this set is perfect for anyone who loves natural looking makeup. I love how Tarte actually color coordinated everything. My favorite thing about this lip set is surprisingly the color of the lip gloss. It's like the prettiest pink I've ever encountered. *Swatches shown from top to bottom: Lip gloss, lipsurgence, and blush.
The lip gloss isn't too sticky, and the blush goes on light and is easily buildable. I would recommend this set to you if you love makeup that is subtle but pretty. I would also recommend this set if you tend to look good in peach, pink, or terra cotta colored blush. I hope Tarte never stops making this set. Yay!
