Definitely tarte. The blushes are highly pigmented and will last a very long time.
I have and love both palettes. It is an upside that the NARS palette includes a highlight. However, I appreciate that the Tarte palette offers a better shade variety, whereas the NARS blushes are closer to being in the same color family. The Tarte blushes also last noticeably longer on my combo/oily skin. Lastly, all but one of the NARS blushes have noticeable shimmer, while only one of the Tarte blushes is shimmery. Deciding whether you want/need more shimmer or more matte would make your decision easier. I would pick the Tarte if I could only keep one, but you would probably enjoy either one just fine.
Tarte off the cuff. Better selection of colors, much better value..fresher and newer. I love Off the Cuff.
