Hey Everyone!!

Its the end of October and some companies are already releasing holiday kits and that makes me very happy!! Holiday Kits are the best buy when you want to get a taste of a brand or there is a product you have been dying to try but don't want to buy a full size.

tarte is introducing  Off The Cuff Amazonian Clay Blush Palette and Cuff ( A Sephora Exclusive) for the holidays. If you don't know, tarte's Amazonian Clay Blushes are legend. They have crazy lasting power, awesome pigmentation and look great on all skin tones, even brown girls...



 The Off The Cuff palette is $42. One tarte blush alone is around $26. 
 Off The Cuff comes with a leather cuff...
 That actually fits me!!! Its not tight or uncomforable and it fits right in with the rest of my jewelry:)
 The palette has five shades:  Crave, Dazzled, Darling, Dollface, and Park Ave Princess. Park Ave Princess and Dazzled are the only repromotes. Dollface is a color that is also repromoted but no longer available through tarte as a single. ( my mirror was broken in shipping)
Here are the swatches: Crave, Dazzled, Darling, Dollface, and Park Ave Princess....


Overall.....

I found only three of the colors wearable: Crave, Darling and Dollface. Dazzled didn't show up on my skin at all and the Park Ave Princess in this palette is lighter than the original one, which I also own. If you are a lighter skinned woman of color or lighter than me, you should be able to rock all the shades. The shades are pigmented by not as pigmented as the regular blush singles which took by surprise. Also, I wish the names of the blushes were on the back of the palette and not on the plastic covering.


Are you planning on buying Off The Cuff? Let me know what you think in the comments!!
