A couple of months ago I made my second Sephora order (see here), and one of the products I simply couldn't resist adding to my basket was this utterly beautiful blush palette from Tarte.

The Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette, $42/£27.83, is, simply put, incredible. The second Tarte palette to join my stash, if features five blush shades which cover all seasons with shades that would be flattering on any skin tone. Presented in a clasp-open palette with soft, plush outer casing, it features a golden design and touch of lilac with a dash of floral designs as a centre strip. The palette also came with two very pretty gold hair clips, which I've tucked away for now, but a nice added little extra.

A full size Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is 5.66g and retails for $26/£17.23, so I'm super happy with the fact that each blush featured in the palette is 4.5g in size. Including a huge full size compact mirror, the palette is actually pretty light-weight and would be fantastic for travelling, with a shade to keep you covered for any occasion!

Breathless is the perfect subtle blush for everyday looks. A beige with very subtle warm rose undertones, it has a satin-matte finish and is very flattering for a natural-toned blush.

Embraced is great for this time of year; a warm toned pink with berry undertones and a very slightly frosted finish. It’s been one of my most reached for winter blushes recently!

Whimsy is a cool-toned pink with a lovely semi-matte finish, and works well to add a flush of colour without being overpowering.

Bashful is a shade I can’t wait to use more come spring and summer, a stunning coral with warm pink undertones with fine golden shimmer finish.

Irreplaceable is another winter perfect shade, but one I'm also looking to pulling off in summer as it’s completely unique to any other shades in my stash and I'm smitten! A lovely warm toned rosy pink, it has a touch of mauve and semi-matte finish.

I'm a big fan of Tarte products and this palette is no different. Unfortunately it is no longer available - but that makes me even more glad that I decided to add it to my recent Sephora haul! I adore the design and structure of the palette, and the shades are all utterly beautiful. I love how the shades featured can work all year round, and the quality, pigmentation and longevity is just as you’d expect from Tarte – amazing! Another impressive palette from Tarte, I am smitten.
