/viz/glorias-2012-holiday-giveaway-re-post Hey Luuux! :D I haven`t put up a Health & Beauty post in a while, so finally decided to do the final review on the
Sephora Favorites In The Glow Set! As the title suggests, this time I`ll be doing the review on the blushes that came in the set! I absolutely love blushes, so I was most excited to try these out :) Keep reading if you`re interested in how each of these perform. _______________________________________________________________
Stila Convertible Color in `Peony` -
Size/Amount of Product: 0.07 oz, not too much product, but decent as a sample. -
Color & Pigmentation: This is a slightly brown undertoned mauve color. Since it is designed to be a convertible cream blush and lip color, I`ll explain how it appears on both the cheeks and lips. On the cheeks, it appears slightly muddy at first, but when spread out, it gave a sheer mauve-y nude sheen. I`m actually not a fan of cream blushes, so didn`t like it very much, but it did spread smoothly. On the lips, it looks like a nice natural looking mauve-y nude color as well. It`s much less noticeable on the lips (but that might be due to my pigmented lips). Overall, it`s a very sheer, but buildable product. -
Texture & Finish: It`s supposed to be a non-greasy product, but to me it felt a little slick and oily. I like it much better on the lips than on the cheeks. The product leaves my cheeks feeling a little bit oily on its own, but it`s very moisturizing on the lips. On both the cheeks and lips, it gives a very dewy, shiny effect. -
Lasting Power: Being a cream product, it lasted a fair amount on my cheeks. I`d say on the cheeks, it lasts about 5-6 hours, but on the lips, it only lasts about 1-2 hours. I think it would be a great cheek product for people with drier skin. -
Packaging: This was the least impressive packaging out of all of the products in the set. It comes in a flimsy plastic case that seems cheaply made. -
Retail Price: $25 for 0.15 oz of product. -
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in `Splendor` -
Size/Amount of Product: 0.11 oz, a fair amount of product. -
Color & Pigmentation: This is a bright pink blush with fine pink and iridescent shimmers and also larger golden glitter particles.
It`s much more true to color in the first picture than in the individual picture of the product! I do not believe it`s a part of their regular line, so this might be exclusive to the Sephora Favorites ITG Set! Like the other Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes, it`s very pigmented (much more pigmented on the cheeks than in a swatch). -
Texture & Finish: Because of the larger glitter particles, the blush feels a little bit gritty to the touch, but on the cheeks, it`s smooth and very blendable. It does have a shimmery finish, but it doesn`t look overbearingly glittery. To my surprise, the larger chunks of glitter do not embed on the skin and look unnatural, but some do occasionally appear on the cheeks. I have no problem brushing them off of my skin though. The finer shimmers give a nice healthy and dewy effect on the skin :) If you wear this blush, there is definitely no need for a highlight on the cheeks. -
Lasting Power: Very long lasting like the rest of the Amazonian Clay line :D I think it lasted me a good 10 hours on the cheeks before fading. -
Packaging: Very sturdy plastic packaging that resembles the color and finish of the actual blush. It`s the same exact packaging design as the full-sized blushes, it`s just smaller. It`s super cute and great for travel! -
Retail Price: $25 for 0.2 oz of product, so I think this was a great deal to receive in the set! The mini blush is a little more than half of a full-size blush :) -
My Rating: , but more like a 4.5! The only reason it didn`t receive a perfect rating is because of the larger glitter chunks that can be a little bit annoying. It`s not difficult to work with though, so still highly rated in my book! ^^
Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in `Flush` -
Size/Amount of Product: 0.17 oz, which is a generous amount. -
Color & Pigmentation: This is described as a sheer berry, and I`d have to agree with that description. It is quite sheer, but has a natural looking berry tint to it. -
Texture & Finish: This has a solid-jelly like texture that feels like it`s packed with moisture without being greasy/oily. Definitely has healthy, dewy finish that`s perfect for someone who wants to bring natural color to the cheeks or lips. Like I said before, I`m not a fan of blushes that aren`t in powder form, but this is actually really nice :) It gives a very natural looking flush to the cheeks, and on the lips it has a lip tint effect. Very natural looking and the color is beautiful! -
Lasting Power: On the cheeks and lips, it does have a staining effect. It`s pretty vibrant on the cheeks for about 4-5 hours, and begins to fade a little afterwards, but still leaves a subtle and natural looking tint for the next 3-4 hours. On the lips, the color lasts for about 3-4 hours, and begins to fade, but stains the lips a sheer berry color that lasts for another 3-4 hours. -
Packaging: Tarte does a great job with their packaging, and certainly don`t disappoint with mini sizes either! The packaging is exactly like their full-sized cheek stains, but it`s just smaller. It comes in a sturdy plastic tube, which again, mimics the color of the actual product, and has a silver cap. The product is able to be twisted up and down for easy application. On top of the cheek stain is also a plastic cover to keep the product from drying out, and also helps with sanitation. -
Retail Price: $30 for 1.0 oz of product. -
My Rating: _______________________________________________________________ That`s my last post/review on the Sephora Favorites In The Glow Set! :) I hope you found it helpful and informative! I do believe this set is now sold out on the Sephora website, but you might still be able to find it in stores :D Overall, I`m really happy with the majority of the products that were included, and highly recommend purchasing it if you can find it! I love how they included a wide range of products from several popular brands, and I think all of the products are amazing for travel as well as great quality and worth the price!
