Tarte’s shipping takes some time. Hadn’t realised that they ship from the States, just assumed they had a UK presence now. But no, it took a while. So long in fact, that I lost a bit of the buzz, the excitement, the nervous energy of buying something that you possibly shouldn’t.
Because I was excited about this blush palette. Am excited, it is so up my street, eight blushers, a bronzer and a highlighter in one compact little palette. Had looked at it full price, visited it regularly on the website and then, on one glorious occasion, there it was, in the sale. £24 down from £42. Destiny.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes are renowned for their quality and the selection of shades in this palette is immense, everything you could ever need. On that note, that is it for me and blusher this year. I shall buy no more, not a single blusher purchase in 2019, not even one of those lovely H&M ones that look like tiny Polly Pockets. Gosh, that’s going to be hard actually. Do I really mean that? It is only January. TBC.
Is buying makeup a legitimate hobby? I mean, obviously not, but what if you blog about it? Does that legitimise the spend? Imagine if I played golf, presumably that is a costly business, all those lost balls and tees and such. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think it even requires special shoes. And while I couldn’t even begin to guess at the price of a nine iron, it is sure to be more than the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette that I didn’t even buy*. I’m almost saving money.
Anyway. This blush book is awesome but you can’t buy it, so there you are, consider yourselves quids in, you’re welcome.
Til next time,
*Gah. Bought one. Not a new £69 one you understand, a bargainous one that I found on sale. Does that make it better? Oh lads, it does have a blusher in it though. So that’s a fail. Honestly…
