Holiday season is coming soon! I know in this economy everyone wants to get the best bang for their buck, so I have decided to start a Gift Guide series comparing similar products to take all the guess work out of beauty gift giving this year.
Here is a first look at Tarte's The Jewelry Box palette exclusive to Sephora. It retails for $52 and is limited edition. This is just one of a few all-in-one palettes that I will be reviewing for Beautyburg's Gift Guide.
This set contains:
- 16 x 0.06 oz full-sized shimmering eyeshadowIt also comes with 1 detachable chain necklace for festive holiday wear.
- 16 x 0.06 oz full-sized matte eyeshadow
- 8 x 0.03 oz lip gloss
- 0.21 oz Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess
- 0.25 oz highlighting powder in soft pink
- 5 x 0.02 oz long-wearing eyeliners
Layer 1: The shimmers. I love how they are #'ed!
The left side of shimmer: 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14.
The right side of shimmer: 3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, 16.
The mattes: 17-32.
Below the eyes are cheeks and lips.
8 lipglosses (I was surprised by their pigmentation. Swatches to come.)
Right: Highlighting powder in soft pink.
Left: Tarte's best-selling bronzer in Park Avenue Princess
Next layer: the eyeliners!
I will be comparing this to Sephora's famous Blockbuster palette and LORAC's seasonal holiday palette offering. If there is something specific you would like to see me evaluate this against, please let me know either by email beautyburg@gmail or leave a comment below!
