For the gift, I had the option between a tarte or Caudalie set. Because I don't like to switch up my skincare routine with new products, I picked the tarte makeup (which included a blush and lip paint).
The blush is such a pretty shade of pink! :)The package is a much darker shade of pink than the images on the Sephora website, so I was worried it was going to be too dark. But to my surprise, the color is perfect! It is subtle enough for an everyday look, but it definitely shows up on the cheeks. This product is now my go-to blush, and it can be blended out flawlessly!
The lip paint also looks much darker than the images on the Sephora website, and it actually is a darker nude pink (it honestly is mostly brown not pink). I have never really been into wearing nude colors, but I think this is the perfect product to change it up sometimes! :D
There are some swatches:
