Yes, full size gloss and lip surgence. I've never bought a 12 hour blush before, but I believe this to be full sized too. Awesome products!

Question
Does the Lipsurgence (the pencil) have glitter in it?
I was wondering if the lip pencil has glitter (i.e chunks, not jsut the fine shimmer found in opalescent lip colors) in it. I have another Lipsurgence pencil and it has glitter and I was wondering whether or not the Achiote Collection one does as well.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated

Yes, it has micro-shimmer in it. However, it doesn't transfer on your lips. It won't make your lips gritty.

Is Achiote similar to Blissful?
I have Blissful and was wondering if once applied Achiote is similar in color. That's what's been holding me back from buying it. Thanks!

achiote is like the combo of blissful and exposed... it's not as light as blissful or dark as exposed. it's like in the middle of those two.

answer 2
The achiote blush and blissful is in no way identical or similar. I own both products and the difference is blissful is more of a pinkish color and achiote is more darker pink/red color. My fav is achiote, I reach for it more than the others.

No, definitely not! The first blush I ever purchased was Blissful and I was not impressed. The color is in the same family of colors, but is more red toned (warm toned) while Blissful is more blue toned (cool toned). I have found that the texture and pigmentation of Achiote far exceeds that of Blissful. Ultimately it is up to you.

answer 4
they are similar, if you love blissful and want a slightly more red-toned (in a good way) blush, buy it, it's a great value and the blush is beautiful, also, if you don't like glittery lip products, say no! If you like/don't mind glitter, jump at it, it's a great deal

answer 5
In the pan achiote is much darker, and blissful is much brighter. Swatched, achiote is a rose pink and blissful is a coral-y pink. Dusted on the face, they look very similar. I would think if you dusted one color on the left cheek and one color on the right, they would be too similar to be able to notice.

answer 3
It's not the cheapest, but because it's so concentrated it lasts 3x as long as other balms. It's the only thing that keeps my lips soft year round: Fresh Sugar. My favorites are coral and rose. They can be used for lip color as well as for treatment.

answer 4
When my lips get really chapped, I like to use Korres lip butters. They are $12 each and even thought they cost more than drug store lip balms they work way better at relieving the dryness and last a good while on the lips. I use the Jasmine lip butter before going to bed as it goes clear, and Pomagranate during the day to add some color (color is buildable).

Does the blush have any shimmer to it?
Most of the reviews state it is matte. But the description says "shimmering" golden pink.

the blush is matte, so if you like shimmer on it, this wouldn't be for you. color wise, i think it's a combo between exposed and blissful.

Not in a noticeable way. It certainly doesn't transfer onto the skin. It looks matte when on your cheeks.

Appropriate for light skin tone?
I have a fair complexion, using the Urban Decay NAKED Foundation shade 3.5, and was wondering if the blush would be a good shade? I tend to usually use peachy pink shades for blush.

i think it's good with all skin types but just apply it with a light hand if you're super light skinned

It is a very light buildable blush. It starts light and sheer and can get very vibrant. It can look pretty on fairer skin tones if you use sparingly. Try the warm peach shade, Blissful, for a more peach toned, matte blush. It is just the tiniest bit lighter than Achiote.

I am extremely fair (naked skin shade 1) so if you're concerned about the blush being too dark, I can tell you it's not :) Granted, all Tarte blushes are very pigmented, so using a light hand is needed with any of their blushes. In pan, the blush looks pinky-brown but on my cheeks it gives a very natural pink flush. I wouldn't classify it as peach though.

How do you get the lip gloss to work?
Serious question, I've been sitting here for 20 minutes clicking the bottom, I've removed the cap, there's no gloss on the brush - nothing is happening. Anyone have an answer before I call customer service?

answer 1
On my skin I'd say it's along the lines of a less intense version of Torrid. Achiote is a glowy but not glittery peachy-coral. Tarte's blush is finely milled, tightly packed, and less chunky than Nars', so it's a bit more sheer, but just as long lasting (for me, at least). Achiote is the type of color often seen on Zoe Saldana and Demi Lovato.

I haven't been a big fan of blush, ever, and this shade was my first shot at it and I was very happy! I generally go for peachy or pink colors when it comes to lip colors and clothes so I'm guessing you and I are a bit similar. In terms of complexion I'm pretty fair and am naturally rosy which is why I never bothered with blush. This color was subtle and pretty perfect for me. Hope this helps!
