I wanted to share my initial thoughts on the Tartelette palette, because I know this palette has been blowing up in the beauty world lately. I bought mine at Sephora for $44.00.
So inside the box it comes with, which I have to admit I’m a bit of a sucker for the gold and purple packaging, is the palette and a card that shows you how to do two different looks.
The palette itself is made out of a hard plastic, and the entire top of the palette is an accurate mirror.
The size and the weight of this palette would make it good for traveling.
On the back of the box it describes this palette: “Embrace your inner tartelette with this all matte palette featuring 12 exclusive Amazonian clay eyeshadows inspired by real women just like you”. So all the names of the shadows are suppose to be adjectives to describe real women.
Free Spirit, Force of Nature, Dreamer, Multi-Tasker
All of these apply wonderfully and blend easily.
Caregiver, Natural Beauty, Best Friend, Bombshell.
Bombshell is a bit of a problem shadow, it is the driest of all the shadows and can go on patchy.
Super Mom, Wanderer, Power Player, Fashionista
All of these apply without a problem, Power Player is a shadow you have to build up. Wanderer is a perfect transition shade.
If you have followed my blog for a while you will notice I have never reviewed or did a first look at a Tarte palette. I normally swatch them in store and am very underwhelmed with their shadows. This palette I think is great to have in your stash, it provides a good bit of shades and can be worn on it’s own or with a million different palettes. I think it is a good palette.
Have you tried this palette? Do you like it?
