Hello my dolls! How are you?
Another eyeshadow palette review.... Can you tell I've been on some kind of kick lately?! I go through phases with certain products and right now, I am all about eyeshadow palettes.
The Tartelette Palette is an all matte stunner and I was so excited to finally get my hands on this.
Let's start with the packaging.... This has to be one of my absolute favorites, aesthetics wise. From the purple ombre front to the gold accents, I am all about this. It's just so sleek, timeless and beautiful.
Isn't she gorgeous?! Inside is mirrored gold with all shade names under each shadow. You get a huge mirror and I love that 'tartelette' is written on it. How many times in my posts do I say this... It's the little things. :)
This is an all matte palette with 12 brand new exclusive shades!
These are the classic amazonian clay formulation and are free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sodium and gluten. This is also dermatologist tested!
You also get a sheet with step-by-step directions for two eyeshadow looks.
Let's check out the shades! <3
The first shade is Free Spirit, a pale cream, almost yellow shade with warm undertones.
Great pigmentation, a touch powdery but it applies, blends and lasts very well.
Force Of Nature is a warm brown with peachy undertones.
This has great color payoff and I love this as a transition shade.
Dreamer is a warm dark brown with yellow undertones.
This shade is nicely pigmented and not as powdery as the lighter shades.
Multi-Tasker is a dark brown with reddish undertones.
Caregiver is a pale pink that pulls slightly more on the cool-toned side.
This shade is beautiful! I don't often wear pinks shades on the eyes but this one all over the lid is simple but pretty. Nice pigmentation, better than I expected for a pale shade like this!
Natural Beauty is a pinky-mauvey-taupe. Super unique shade!
This shade needed to be built up a little bit, it blends easily and is perfect for a transition/blending shade.
Best Friend is a muted cool-toned purple.
This shade was more difficult to swatch, it ends up being a little uneven but can be built up and it wears better on the eyes.
Bombshell is a deep cool-toned purple.
Nice color payoff, this shade is slightly more difficult to blend than the others.
Super Mom is a warm pale cream.
Great pigmentation, I love this as a subtle browbone and inner corner highlight!
Wanderer is a warm medium-brown with slight yellow/warm undertones.
Good pigmentation, I love this shade for warming up the crease!!
Power Player is a warm brownish-taupe.
Okay color payoff, it needed to be built up a bit.
Fashionista is your classic matte black.
Overall, I love this palette! It's my first experience with Tarte eyeshadows so I can't compare them to any other palettes but I'm pretty impressed. The pigmentation was consistent throughout, there wasn't any shade in this palette that disappointed me and they last all day on the eyes!
