Tarte Tres Chic Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette retails for $34 USD ($41 CAD) and contains 3 powders; a bronzer (0.21 oz.), blush (0.10 oz.) and highlighter (0.10 oz.) It is said to be "a limited-edition, three-in-one palette with luxe, contouring makeup essentials, featuring Tarte's iconic Park Ave Princess matte bronzer."

"Get a glowing look that highlights your best features with tarte’s contouring palette.The bestselling park ave princess matte bronzer warms up the complexion, and it creates a naturally slimmer appearance with the easy-to-blend blush and highlighter duo. Each high-performance formula is infused with skin-balancing Amazonian clay and is encased in the sleek, gilded compact with a full-size mirror for a fade-free, effortless finish wherever you go."
The Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzers retail for $30 USD ($36 CAD) and contains 0.32 oz. of product. The Amazonian Clay Blushes retail for $26 USD ($31 CAD) and contains 0.20 oz. of product. The Amazonian Clay Highlights retail for $30 USD ($39 CAD) and contains 0.32 oz. of product. With that said, this set is a $42 USD ($51 CAD) value, so you are getting a fairly good deal by purchasing this 3-in-1 palette.

The packaging is a slim plastic, gold metallic palette that features a mirror. The plastic does feel rather thin and flimsy so this may not as durable or travel-friendly as you had hoped.
Park Avenue Princess is a medium-dark, golden brown with warm undertones and a satin matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, lightly powdery and blended out nicely and evenly on the skin. It had good pigmentation that was buildable and lasted +8 hours before fading. (5/5)
Posh is a light-medium pink taupe with cool undertones and a satin matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth but lightly powdery once applied to the skin. It had decent pigmentation that was buildable and lasted +7.5 hours before fading. (4/5)
Champagne Gold is a light-medium, peach gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft, smooth, buttery and blended out nicely and evenly on the skin. This shade left a luminous, frosted glow that didn't emphasize the look of pores or imperfections and lasted +8 hours before fading. (5/5)

Overall, Tarte holiday cheek products are always a must-have product for me and this is a nice 3-in-1 cheek palette for fair-medium skintones. It's a nice alternative if the Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette was a skip for you. Whether you're planning to gift this palette, try out the brand's signature cheek products for the first time or you're a blush fan eager to get your hands on the limited edition shades, it's definitely worth checking out!
