Tarte Treasure Chest

This was an old post that I created and apparently never hit post on...I don't own this palette anymore, but thought I'd post it now anyways
So I have to admit with a certain degree of difficulty that I've fallen pretty far behind on swatching..the problem being that I'm pretty much not awake during the day anymore except at odd hours like this where the sun really hasn't risen out of the sky yet...so I've made you guys promises I have yet to keep...the last big thing I swatched was the Tarte Treasure chest close to a month ago and just let sit for a while as laziness overtook me...my bad, and my apologies...
Anyways, today's topic is one of the more decent sets this holiday, the Tarte Treasure Chest. This baby retails for $52 at Sephora and unlike Tarte's more recent palettes and last year's failure of a holiday palette, the quality's actually pretty good (Though I will admit that the blushes in last year's holiday palette were so nice I almost kept the darned thing just for those) This year's palette is also a lot bigger than last years; with 32 full sized eyeshadows instead of 16.
The palette comes in bejeweled casing that imo, is somewhat cute, but in a tacky way. (I find it kinda festive...it reminds me of Christmas tree ornaments) There's unfortunately a near fatal flaw to this packaging; if you tilt this forward at all, the "drawer" like design of the palette sends the lipgloss and cheek color layers flying out at you at a somewhat alarming speed. Luckily, this palette has some redeeming qualities, so it missed getting the axe. Nevertheless, this is definitely not a travel friendly palette.

Here's the palette all opened up...it's certainly a lot of makeup in one go...
There are two layers of eyeshadows in this palette. The top layer contains the more colorful, shimmery shades. I swatched these in columns this time. Pictures were taken in warm indoor lighting. All shades were fairly soft and buttery.
column 1 contains a shimmery, slightly bronzy gold, a brown with gold shimmer, a peachy pink with gold shimmer, and a dark taupey color with gold shimmer.
column 2 contains a warm brown with gold shimmer, a shimmer gold, a light, frosty peachy pink, and a lightish purple with gold shimmer












The Adventures of a Projectile Pig

Last summer, a coworker and I went to an amusement park, where he won and gave me one of the little pig plushies from the angry Birds game. We very quickly realized that this toy made a very useful projectile and started using it to get each other's attention when needed. On certain occasions, I've taken to keeping him in my extra office supplies drawer to keep him from being bounced off my head when I need to concentrate:

He's also been pignapped on several occasions, which usually came with ransom notes or threats of some sort being forwarded to me in some way, shape, or form:

 Anyways, after the last time I used him as a projectile, he was confiscated from me. I came back from lunch today to see this placed on my desk:

These were the pics (and captions) that were on the USB:

Poor Mr. Pig. This doesn't really seem like much of a vacation to me...so I'd like to send him somewhere else. I'm hoping he'll get passed around a bit and get some pictures taken of him in more interesting places, with him (hopefully) eventually making it home. Any takers?
