Tarte Cosmetics Bon Voyage Holiday Palette {First Impressions}

I don't normally do first impressions post, but I really thought this product was worthy of one! I am so excited about the set that I wanted to get some preliminary thoughts out there as you may be shopping around for holiday sets already. I plan to follow this up with a full review including swatches of the palette which is absolutely gorgeous.

Product Description:
Tarte’s Bon Voyage Collector’s Set and Travel Bag features a whimsical, feminine design inspired by vintage Parisian glamour. The exclusive travel bag has a structured design and top handle to create the look of luggage, and the soft and dreamy patterns woven throughout the entire collector’s set is meant to reflect the sweet dream of romantic jet setting—Parisian style. This giftable set offers handpicked bestsellers for the eyes, lips, cheeks, and complexion and includes natural-looking shades that flatter all skin tones.

Create endless, dreamy looks wherever you go: the sleek statement eye shadow palette is perfectly paired with Tarte’s iconic bestsellers in limited-edition, trendy shades for every holiday occasion, and the LipSurgence™ lip gloss can be worn alone for medium coverage and shine, or pair it with the included LipSurgence™ lip tint for amped up lip color. The lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara coats and lengthens every last lash, and the cheek stain leaves you with a natural, healthy flush to keep you glowing. The maracuja oil can be used as a daily facial moisturizer, and to finish off your makeup looks, dust on smooth operator™ Amazonian clay finishing powder over skin as a treatment, or on top of foundation for stay-put makeup.

Products used: 
Tarte CC primer stick for foundation, Tarte Bon Voyage eyeshadow palette, Anastasia brow pomade in soft brown, Too Faced melted lipstick in fuchsia, Tarte best in faux lash extending fibers, Buxom black eyeliner, Tarte classic blush (soft apricot pink) with Tarte prim blush (plum nude) from Tarte's chic to cheek 4 piece set for holiday 2014. 

My initial thoughts: 
This set retails for $59 but is a $423 value! I was actually just debating what I wanted for Christmas from my boyfriend. I was considering a blush palette that has three blushes in it but costs $58. After I saw a gift set like this, I figured I would probably hold off on asking for the blushes because I know there are so many great holiday gift sets out there. This is probably one of the best gift sets I've seen for the value. If you're a tarte addict like me and $59 is above your budget for a gift for someone, you could always break some of the pieces apart and include them as stocking stuffers (while keeping the eyeshadow palette for yourself!) A lipsurgence is $24 and a gloss is $19 so you're already at $43 for just two products. The lip colors are apricot and peach toned and blend well together. I think these will work well with a lot of skintones. 


I like the mix of matte and shimmery eyeshadow shades. As I get older, I find myself gravitating more towards matte shades. Sometimes tarte shades don't always grab me at first glance, but once I apply them it makes me remember how well their colors work with my coloring and my green eyes. The colors in the top row are what I used to create this look and are probably the colors that will be getting the most use out of this palette along with some of the shimmery browns. Overall, I'm really liking the eyeshadow colors and set as a whole. I look forward to testing this out more and bringing you guys more of my thoughts. Please comment and let me know what you think as well!

Stay tuned for my full review & swatches!
