As you know I’ve reviewed a lot of tarte cosmetics over the years but nothing has ever come close to the holiday Gorgeous Getaways set that I’m showing you today. I haven’t used anything other than this box of wonder since I received it for review. Sometimes when I’ve gotten a holiday set I’ve liked the eyeshadows but they weren’t quite the same caliber as the regular line. That’s not the case with tarte Gorgeous Getaways. These eyeshadows are absolutely amazing. Fabulous pigmentation, a variety of finishes and colors, terrific lasting power. It has it all.

This is an Ulta exclusive that costs $48 and is worth so much more than that. This two tiered set has everything you need at home or for travel. In the top tier you’ll receive 4 separate palettes that each contain four complimentary eyeshadows and a blush. In the bottom tier you’ll find an empty gold palette case so you can transfer one of your favorites into it for your purse or travel. As if that’s not enough, there are 3 beautiful lip glosses that work perfectly with the colors in the top tier.

The top left palette contains

Taj Mahal: a light cream that’s got a cool undertone.  Grand Canyon: a matte apricot.  Central Park: a matte charcoal.  Big Ben: matte taupe with brown undertones.  Savvy blush – warm mauve

This palette is a great neutral one that’s perfect for everyday use. The two far left shadows are workhorses!

The top right palette contains:

Santorini Bikini: peach satin.  Great Sphynx: milk chocolate with light shimmer.  Belgian Chocolate: this is a darker chocolate with a purple undertone.  Pacific Sunset: a coppery gold with some shimmer.  Spontaneous blush: a pinky peach satin

This is my absolute favorite of the group. These shadows are the ones I can’t keep away from. I’ve used one or more every day since I started with it. The blush is perfect!

The bottom left palette contains:

Gold Coast: a beautiful gold shimmer.  Eiffel Tower: a matte brown.  Midnight in Paris: a blued black matte.  Space Needle:  taupe shimmer.  Lighthearted blush: a bright cool pink.

This is my next favorite of the four. I can’t get enough of Gold Coast and Space Needle.

The bottom left palette contains:

Serengeti Sand: a light beige that is a great neutral.   Buckingham Palace: satin finish brown with black undertones.  Bordeaux: dark purple shimmer with black undertones.   Rocky Mountain: a slate brown matte.  Ambitious blush: a mauved pink

Every one of these colors are terrific. My picture doesn’t show you the richness of Bordeaux which is a shame!

The individual palette that comes with this set is magnetized as are the bottoms of the palettes. You can use this to take one with you since the entire box is too heavy to travel with if you were flying.

Three gorgeous new shades of Maracuja gloss are included and they are beautifully matched with the shades of blush and shadows.

NY Minute has a definite lavender undertone to its pinkness.  When in Rome is a pinky coral. Czech Me Out is more of a mauve shade.

This gets my vote for the best holiday 2013 cosmetic set and that’s saying a lot since I bought quite a few this year!! What tarte have you caved and bought? — Marcia
