Another day in Philly. Another Sephora to conquer. Another situation where I'd quickly have to run to the cashier, paying for the stuff in my cart so that my mom wouldn't see what I spent money on again. She just doesn't like it when I purchase too much make-up. Or make-up at all even though she sometimes completely switches from anti to fan and gets me my objects of desire herself (not in this case, though).
One of said 'GRAB AND HIDE!!!!!'-items is the Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek palette, an item so beautiful and perfect in every possible way, it almost makes me cry tears of joy. I've paid a lot of attention to a certain single blush review on Temptalia's weeks ago and that particular shade has been on my wish list ever since. However, when I checked on the prices and saw the value palette instead - coming with four shades I totally wear - I knew I had to check on that in-store and the bargain hunter was immediately released.
The palette completely focuses on wearable everyday shades and varies from Georgian peach to Russian rose pink. Candy Cameo is a shimmery pink with decent glitter infusion. Feather is a shimmery peach, however, the glitter isn't as obvious as in Candy Cameo (which can't be purchased individually by the way). Carved Rose is your well-known type of cool vivid pink, a perfectly girly blush for everyday use. Parasol (the blush I read the review on) is a shimmery peach with pink undertones according to Sephora.
I've loved how pigmented the shades are yet can be blended well. Most highly pigmented blushes make it hard to work with since they tend to 'stain', that isn't something I experienced with these darlings. Also, as mentioned before, the palette includes all my favourite blush colours and also the only ones I were interested in from the line, thus my purchase couldn't be any more successful.
The blushes normally retail for 25$, so the palette combination would be 100$ when purchasing the shades individually. The palette, however, 'only' costs 45$ and makes it a perfect set for Tarina Tarantino beginners or in general people who are new to using blushes.
