Cheeks rejoice! Hold on to your blush brushes, this may just be the best blush palette yet.  The Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette is an exclusive new set with five (yes, FIVE!) brand new colours, it comes with two vintage-inspired hairpins and is packaged in a golden, hard-cased ‘Parisian-style’ clutch.  Did you get all that? Not short on the extras, the real star of this palette is the blushes themselves.  The five new shades *swatches below* are the same winning formula of the brands already established Amazonian 12-hour clay-infused collection of blushes.  Included in the palette are Breathless (pinky beige,) Embraced (plummy rose,) Whimsy (light pink,) Bashful (rosy peach) and Irreplaceable (mauve rose.)

Each shade has it’s own identity, which in my opinion is the best part of this palette, you can create so many different looks from day to night, glowing to glam. It’s super versatile, not to mention it being really handy having all of the shades in one place. The one shade that stood out for me is ‘Embraced,’ it’s the perfect hint of plum for the cold Winter days ahead. Needless to say, if you’re a fan of the formula (as I know I am,) this is a great way to up the blush factor as the holiday season rolls around.
