I know I’m supposed to be on my holidays, but between 2 hiking trips (literally🏃🏻), I had to tell you about the new Tarte Holiday 2015 blush palette called “Bling It On”. Why the rush? Simply because these babies sell out very fast each year and you don’t want to miss this one..

Tarte Bling It On Holiday 2015

Tarte Bling It On Holiday 2015
In order: Fetching, Dollface, Prim, Smashing & Beaming


Dollface is a permanent shade (cool pink/matte)

Prim (neutral rose/matte)

– New Shades –

Beaming (light peach/shimmer micro glitter)

Note: This one is a tiny bit less pigmented but oh! so beautiful as a topper.

Fetching (plum rose/matte)

Smashing (warm coral/matte)


♥ Real bang for your buck (Such a great deal – Very budget friendly!!!)

♥ 5 perfect shades that will flatter every skin tones (fair skin approved). 4 mattes & 1 has little shimmer.

♥The packaging is super cute, very festive and sleek (a far cry from last year’s bulky packaging)

♥ I know it’s not suppose to matter but I love the fact that they printed the names of the blushes on the actual palette (no more plastique cheats that we all hate and throw in the garbage right away!!!)

♥ These are long-lasting, for at least a full work day (8-12 hrs+)

♥ Tarte is a cruelty-free brand.

♥ The quality is 100% the same as Tarte’s single blush pans (Tarte didn’t cheap out on this one).

♥ If you are not used to these blushes, they are VERY pigmented (🚫Warning!!!🚫). A little goes a long way so you will have this palette for a long long time yay!!!)

♥ The palette format is so practical (takes less space in your suitcase, travel friendly).


♥ Couple of glitters already fell off the packaging. (Not a great deal, but I had to find something Right?!!!)

Tarte Bling It On Holiday 2015


A Blush lover must-have and a great buy for a girl on a budget!!! What can I say, this beauty is STUNNING! The colors are so up my alley and will go with any makeup look, for any season. If you want it, buy it now because very soon, this palette WILL be sold out !!! If you already own the previous Tarte Holiday blush palettes, you probably don’t need this one, but if like me, you are a makeup junkie, it will be a great addition to your collection.  Highly recommended… 

Thanks for stopping by my beauties

  1. Ooh not sure why I didn’t see this on my reader. And weren’t you supposed to be taking a break from your blog? Aren’t you on vacation in the wilderness somewhere?! 😛
    This palette is nice BUT I don’t think I am a fan of the Amazonian Clay blushes… I don’t find them to be pigmented. They feel extremely dry – I have to use the scratchiest brush I own to pick up any product. Granted, I only own ONE (Exposed – what else) and I was quite disappointed. And even when I swatch them in stores I’m not impressed. I MAY try it if the price was right! 😉

    1. HeHe ! I’ve been in the wilderness but now Beard Man has to work (and he has the flu big time) We do day hike (still 3 planned!!!) … I’m so surprised that you find the Tarte AC blushes not pigmented; I find them almost too pigmented for my taste ???!!!! What’s your favourite brand for blushes ???

      1. Oh no, poor Beard Man! Oh enjoy the hiking, the weather is perfect for hiking – not too hot.
        In terms of pigmentation, Illamasqua is really good! Also theBalm Instain ones are amazing too – I’m working on a review of theBalm ones so watch out for that! 😊

      2. Oh you should definitely at least try theBalm! Illamasqua is now gone from North America so it’s difficult and expensive to get online now. I’ve pretty much written them off but I do cherish the products I did get from them while they were here. I will do swatches / reviews soon…

      3. NO! We don’t have Rexall in Quebec 😩 You need to try a Cargo palette (not Suited To A TEA), I find myself loving more and more their eyeshadows 🙂 Northern Lights (paid 15$ at Winners) is especially nice for Fall …

      4. Oh BOO. No Rexall? That’s sad. But you have Jean Coutu – do they have good brands there?
        Yes I saw the Cargo Northern Lights palette at Winner – I walked quickly away. 😉 I heard Suited to a Tea is terrible too! I really really want to get my paws on the Cargo Vintage Escape palette!

  2. This is one I’m going to have to see in stores. The colors are soooooooo pretty but I’m not sure how I feel about the packaging. Do you find that you get glitter all over your hands from it!!??

    1. The fallouts from the packaging is not bothering me at this point. Since you bought last year palette, I don’t think you need this one … You should wait for The Too Faced blush palette!!! Did you buy any Holiday sets so far ??? Le Grand Palais is awful & Tarte Light of the Party is better than TF but still so disappointing …


      1. Too Faced has a blush palette!? Where have I been!!???? I actually want the Becca blush palette. To be honest, I’m not really feeling sucked in my by most of the Holiday palettes right now… I like the Tarte one at Sephora but I don’t think I’ll get it……….. I did just order the Lorac Mega Pro 2 though :-X And since you are twisting my arm, I ordered a second one to giveaway on my YouTube channel!!!!

      2. Meeeeeeeeeeeeee! I want that Lorac Mega Pro 2 so badly !!!🙏🏻 No giveaway I’ll send you a check 😀
        The TF blush palette is coming soon …

        I think that you should get the Becca highlight/blush palette, it’s such a great value !!!

  3. I’m so glad they printed the names of the blushes on the palette now too – it was so dumb to have that plastic sheet although I suspect nobody but bloggers and hardcore makeup lovers would care haha

    The colors look so pretty in this year’s palette, but seem very similar to each other; they all look like pinks! At least last year’s palette had a bit more variety in shades.

    1. I agree that they are on the “pinkish” side but to me it’s the perfect range of peach/pink, nude/pink, brown/pink … If you don’t already know I like pink blushes 😀


    1. I know !!! I’m talking TF “Le Grand Palais” and Tarte “Light Of The Party” that to me are super disappointing this year. I can tell you that this blush palette is the real deal 🙂
