Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Palette Color Wheel Swatches


Tarte Cosmetics has changed up their holiday blush palette from what we all know typically houses 4-5 Amazonian Clay Blushes. This outstanding ten (ten!) mini sized double-sided blush palette does not scream holiday packaging to me but nonetheless, I am impressed with the color selection and realistically using up each pan as the sizes are easy to hit pan. You will be seeing swatches of the Sephora exclusive Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Palette Color Wheel shortly.

The palette contains:

A fan is a machine used to create flow within a fluid, typically a gas such as air. The fan consists of a rotating arrangement of vanes or blades which act on the fluid. The rotating assembly of blades and hub is known as an impeller, a rotor, or a runner. Usually, it is contained within some form of housing or case. This may direct the airflow or increase safety by preventing objects from contacting the fan blades. Most fans are powered by electric motors, but other sources of power may be used, including hydraulic motors and internal combustion engines. Fans produce flows with high volume and low pressure (although higher than ambient pressure), as opposed to compressors which produce high pressures at a comparatively low volume. A fan blade will often rotate when exposed to a fluid stream, and devices that take…
