Not long ago, I purchased a fabulous Tarte set: the Tarte Amazonian Adventure Color Collection in Taupe. I told you about it in September. I was slow in trying it out. I had to have it, but once it was secured, I relaxed. I'll admit I do that now and then. It's not because I get blasé about makeup. I just have so much I want to wear and try, and I save treats for myself.
The Amazonian Adventure Color Collection ($48) is a six-piece set, inspired by Tarte creator Maureen Kelly's journey to the Amazon Rain Forest. The set is designed to give you everything you need to discover the skin-balancing benefits of Tarte's blend of Amazonian clay.
I have worn my first piece from the set, purchased from QVC, and it's love. The Perfect Rose is a warm pink cheek stain - sheer, pretty, and, as you would expect from Tarte, good for your skin!
My arm photo at right shows how sheer and pretty the color is. It's a warm pink, one that many of us can wear. There's no "cool baby-doll" in this shade. My photo was taken in full sun, and I applied the Cheek Stain directly from the container with a few back-and-forth swipes. It looks beautiful on my cheeks - the perfect everyday shade! The color is so natural, the flush appears to be mine, not courtesy of makeup.
The set doesn't appear to be available anymore at QVC. However, I learned today from Tarte that The Perfect Rose is exclusive to QVC and will be available again there in November. If you can't wait, Amazon lists it at this link for $25, and I also found new ones on eBay.
