Tarte Coral Crush Amazonian Clay Palette: Swatches and Review

After absolutely loving the Tarte Aqualillies Palette, I decided to give the next Tarte disc palette a try.

Coral Crush has no coral except the design on the outside- confusing? I love the starfish, although the fact that it is a raised charm does take away from the sleek design.

Inside the disc are a highlighter, bronzer, blush, and six eyeshadows. The highlighter and bronzer are the same as the Aqualillies palette- which works for me since I loved them both.

The blush is called Carefree, and the shadows are (left to right) Cocoa Cabana, Tropical Suntan, Sandy Grey, Golden Getaway, Lilac Mist, and Paradise Pink.

Champagne, Park Avenue Princess, Carefree:

Champagne is a light golden beige. Park Avenue Princess is a neutral matte bronzer. Carefree is a bright shimmering cool toned pink.

Cocoa Cabana, Tropical Suntan, Sandy Grey, Golden Getaway, Lilac Mist, and Paradise Pink.

Cocoa Cabana is a matte medium brown. Tropical Suntan is a lighter matte brown- coffee with lots of cream. Sandy Grey is a silver grey shimmer with a hint of brown undertone. Golden Getaway is a shimmery light gold. Lilac Mist has a matte light purple base with fine silver shimmer. Paradise Pink is a light frosty pink.

The color scheme is gorgeous- neutrals with a bit of color added in. I love the disc format, and everything is great quality. This isn't a palette where one or two shades are a dud- everything is beautiful and nicely pigmented. Overall I am loving this Tarte palette!
