Tarte's Baby It's Bold Outside Holiday 2012 collection is nothing short of amazing! I have to say that every fall I anxiously await Tarte's Holiday release because I always, always love everything. They have a knack for putting together palettes and box sets that are affordable, stunning and contain colors and products that will actually get used! My absolute stand-out faves for this season, which I got all gushy over with excitement over when I saw them, are the Big Thrill Color Collection and For the Love of Lipgloss! First of all both are Ulta exclusives, so you'll need to go online or head to your local Ulta to snag them. The Big Thrill set includes 16 of Tarte's signature square eye shadows infused with Amazonian clay in an array of fresh colors and 3 of Tarte's award winning and best selling Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes in 3 brand NEW shades fit for the season. This collector's palette also features 3 vitamin lip glosses neatly tucked away inside the mini drawer. I am super impressed with everything in the box as well as the box itself (packaging is super adorable!) Price is $48.00 and would make an amazing gift. It even comes with a step-by-step illustrated guide to help you find your new look (keeping in mind there are thousands of combos considering how much you get in the box). For the Love of Lipgloss is a stunning collection of 15 glosses perfect for yourself or to gift to others! There are three individual boxes of 5 glosses (which come with handy to/from labels on the back) so you could separate out the set or give as one large one. Colors are beautiful (each one is named after a member of the Tarte family - adorable!) and each one is super-wearable. The set retails for $32.00 and is worth every penny.
