Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Palette Review & Swatches


I was really excited to recieve the Dollskin Cheek Palette by Tarina Tarantino for Christmas before they took their leave from Sephora (but the line will be available on the Tarina Tarantino website soon).

I had seen Tarina Tarantino's "Parasol" blush on another beauty blog and fell in love with it. At the time this palette had been marked down on Sephora and was a great deal for four blushes - including Parasol!

To start off, I really like the packaging. It's very sleek and elegant! It's a solid, yet light compact with etched in designs. It's quite reflective, though and is a bit difficult to photograph. It also shows smudges and fingerprints, but overall I really like the look of it!


As you can see it also comes with a large, good quality mirror which is great! Anyway, the four blushes this palette contains (left to right, top to bottom) are Feather (a satin/shimmer peach), Parasol (a satin/shimmer coral), Carved Rose (a matte pink), and Candy Cameo (a sparkling pink). I like that this palette contains a bit of variety in terms of finishes.

Each blush is very smooth and soft. Texture wise they kind of remind me of, say, theBalm's Frat Boy. They're more on the "harder" side, while blushes like NARS I find are more "silky soft".

These all also have really nice pigmentation. They're not poorly pigmented, nor overly pigmented - they're a happy medium which I really like. You're quite unlikely to overapply with these, which can happen sometimes with other blushes I own even if I only take the smallest amount (like Cargo Mendocino). You, of course, can also build the intensity of these up as you please, though!

These also wear very well and I love each shade! My favorites would have to be Feather and Parasol, while Candy Cameo is the one I use the least. I also normally wouldn't go for such bright, light pinks like Carved Rose (NARS Gaiety kind of terrifies me), but I found out that I really like it! Each shade I find also gives me a really nice and healthy look, which I'm always a fan of!

Time for swatches!

Aren't they lovely? I'm seriously loving this palette! If you love blushes like I do and you come across this palette I definitely suggest getting it!
