$59.00 ($418.00 value)
I have always been a fan of tarte cosmetics. And during the holiday season they come out with some great blockbuster kits. So, as an early present to myself I purchased this set and I wanted to include it on the Holiday Gift List 2016 because it is an impressive set. This would be a great gift for any beauty junkie or even for yourself. And the price is amazing. This blockbuster is only $59.00 but is worth $418!!!! It is a SEPHORA exclusive. You can imagine, create and inspire with this collector's Paintbox Collector's Makeup Case, featuring all the beauty products needed to complete a number of beauty looks. The custom print, full-size case includes a built-in eye shadow palette with 24 brilliant, limited-edition shades, including warm neutral and avant-garde bolds with mixed matte and micro-metallic finishes. It also includes two, lash-loving favorites from tarte: the waterproof Rainforest of the Sea™ so fine micro liner and tarteist lash paint mascara for an instant, ultimate increase in lash volume. Then paint on high-coverage, high-shine lip color with the coveted, deluxe-size tarteist glossy lip paint. The case also includes a limited-edition, four-piece cheek palette to contour, highlight and accentuate cheeks across all skin tones. There is added storage in the mirrored case for some extra essentials so you can stow away the rest of your beauty musts.

The Amazonian Clay Eyeshadows come in the following shades: Glitter Glue (shimmery medium champagne), Nudes (matte warm nude), Bronze Casting (shimmery bronze), Silhoutte (satin black), Waterlilies (matte light nude), van Gogh with it (satin taupe), Metal Work (shimmery copper), Charcoal Sketch (glittery charcoal), Pearl Earring (shimmery pearl), Frameworthy (satin nude), First Impression (shimmery silver-blue), Starry Night (satin navy), Fresco (matte cream), Hearts & Crafts (satin creamy pink), Selfie Portrait (shimmery nude), One Too Manet (shimmery taupe-bronze), Porcelain Dali (matte creamy pink), Monochrome (shimmery light champagne), hot MoMa (shimmery bugundy), Stained Glass (satin burgundy), Pastel (matte light pink), I Lourve It (matte nude), Get Surreal (shimmery taupe-nude) and Still Life (satin eggplant). 

The Pretty Paintbox Collector's Makeup Case also contains the following:
  • Tartiest lash paint mascara in Black (deluxe size)
  • Amazonian Clay Blush in Moment (coral)
  • Amazonian Clay Highlighter in Authentic (champagne)
  • (2) Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Unique (shimmer), Provacative (matte contour) 
  • Rainforest of the Sea So Fine Micro Liner in Black (full size)
  • Tarteist glossy lip paint in Ovbi, a warm nude (deluxe size)
What I love about this gift set is that it is chock full of products. The eye shadows are extremely pigmented, creamy and do not have a lot of fall out. Plus there is a nice array of colors and finishes. There are definitely a lot of nudes in this palette, so it is easy to play up your love of nude colors with the darker shades as well. I counted 11 nude shades, so it's definitely easy have a number of lighter shades to play with. What is nice that the nude shades are all pigmented and go on nicely. There is very little fallout. The darker shades are very nice too. You have a nice number of them and they are all very pigmented. As with the nudes, there is very little fallout. And all the shades are pretty creamy, even the matte shades.

They go on nicely and wear very well. I am in LOVE with the Rainforest of the Sea So Fine Micro Liner. It is waterproof and the ink in it flows easily, it doesn't skip and it just goes on so nicely. It is also extremely pigmented and one of the best liquid eyeliners I have ever used. I am also loving the Tarteist lash paint mascara, which makes lashes look long, velvety and luscious. The Tarteist glossy lip paint in this set is perfect because it is a great nude color, so it goes with everything.

I've always loved tarte Amazonian Clay blushes, they are well pigmented and last all day without fading. I like the one in this set, the color are very nice. I like the highlighter and bronzers too. The bronzers are not too dark for my complexion like most bronzers are, in fact these look more like dark blushes than bronzers. The highlighter is awesome. It makes my face glow, which is what it is supposed to do.
