Tarte Light of the Party Collector's Makeup Case - Swatches

There are so many holiday sets and palettes out right now.

Pretty much so many that it is hard to keep up.

I have had the tarte Light of the Party Set for some time now and honestly I thought that I had already posted the swatches of it.

I found out today that it was sitting in my drafts, but have no fear because here it is and it is still available for purchase at Sephora.

The Light of the Party Set comes with a small palette, a large palette, a mini double sided brush, and a Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara.


First up is the smaller palette.

It comes with a bronzer in Social Butterfly and a blush in Amazed as well as a highlighter in Pink Champagne.

There are 6 eyeshadows in the shades Popcorn Strand, Wrapped Up, Dancer & Prancer, Shining Star, Yule Be Surprised, and Mulberry & Bright.


All swatches were done on my bare arm without any primer.

Swatches from left to right in natural lighting - Social Butterly, Amazed, Pink Champagne, Popcorn Strand, Dancer & Prancer, Yule Be Surprised, Wrapped Up, Shining Star, and Mulberry & Bright.

One last set of swatches for the heck of it!


Moving on to the big palette...

Here is the makeup case that the palettes come in.

I am not to thrilled with the sequin design.

I think it would have been okay with the sequins, but maybe a holiday design.


A close up of the bigger palette, which by the way is glued to the bottom of the box ( I popped mine out).


All swatches of the bigger palette are also done in natural lighting.

1st row from left to right - Sugar Cookie, In A Flurry, Fizz The Season, It's Snow Time, Eggnog,, and What A Wonderful Pearl.


Same swatches, different angle.

As you can tell all of the shades with the exception of Fizz The Season are very light base, brow bone, or blending shades.


Same swatches with flash


2nd row left to right - Miracle Of Light, Rum Pum Plum, Tartetini, Baby It's Gold Outside, Peach On Earth, and Come What Grey.


Same swatches, different angle

These shades are darker than the first row and have more of a range in color.

3rd row from left to right - Under The Mistle-Taupe, Ring-A-Ling, Fireside Chat, Party Favored, Gingerbread Mansion, and Chrome For The Holidays.


Same swatches, different angle

The 3rd row is darker than the previous row and is more reddish toned.


Same swatches with flash


The 4th and final row from left to right - Sleigh Watch, Mulled Wine, Cocoa What Fun, Black Velvet, Haute Chocolate, and Midnight Kiss.


Same swatches, different angle

The final row is contains the darkest shades, all of which are matte.

The smaller palette is great for travel and is a one stop shop with a bronzer, blush, highlighter, and eyeshadows.

The bigger palette has 24 shades to choose from.

The first row being the lightest shades and the last row the darkest.

Each palette comes with a mix of shimmer and matte shades.

All of the eyeshadow shades are named after words associated with the holidays.

I found that the shimmer shades were more pigmented than the mattes.

My favorite rows in the palette are the 2nd and the 3rd.

The makeup case can be used to store other items once the palette is gone. 

The tarte Light of the Party set is only available at Sephora for the holidays and is $59.
