Review: Tarte Achiote Color Collection

29 May

I am in love with this newest Tarte release! The absolutely gorgeous Achiote Color Collection includes three full size tarte staple products in a universally flattering shade of shimmering golden pink.

The set includes:

  • LipSurgence Lip Luster in Achiote (shimmering golden pink)
  • Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Achiote (shimmering golden pink)
  • Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss in Achiote (shimmering golden pink)

If you’re familiar with the tarte product line then you know how great of a value this set is at $42. If you were to buy all three of these products separately, you would be spending $70.

The stand out product that made me lust over this kit was the blush. I recently hit pan on my other tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Peaceful, so I was on the hunt for summery new shade.  There is no shimmer or sparkle in this blush, which makes it very daytime friendly. The color stays true and doesn’t fade throughout the day on my oily skin.

I was also very excited to try the new Maracuja Divine Lip Shine gloss. I saw these at Sephora the other day and have been dying to get my paws on it. The color payoff is surprisingly good. It’s not opaque but it definitely gives some good color. The gloss is packed with tons of super tiny shimmering particles that reflect the light and make your lips look big and voluptuous. And I love the refreshing minty flavor.

The Lip Surgence is another great product (I own at least 10 of them). It’s a minty, shimmery lipstick and it looks amazeballs underneath the Maracuja gloss.

If you want to pick up this collection for yourself, it’s available here on tarte’s website.

    This is a lovely set! I might check out the blush, since it doesn’t have shimmer. I have Glisten and love it, but daytime friendly it is not.
