Tarte is one of those brands that consistently just does it right every time.
I’ve been using the Tartlette In Bloom eyeshadow palette (C$60) consistency since I got it a couple years ago. The bestselling palette contains 12 shadows, everything from brightening matte colours to micro shimmer shades. There’s soft nudes, shimmery coppers, browns, you name it. Since there are nine mattes and three shimmers in here, you get the perfect assortment of colours and formulas, which make this one an all-star product. In fact, it’s usually the palette I reach for the most when it comes to travelling. The shade range coupled with the fact that it’s nice and slim (with a good-sized mirror), makes it super handy to toss in your makeup bag for that dream vacation.
Since I love the In Bloom palette so much I was so excited to receive the other two palettes in the Tartelette family, the Amazonian Clay Matte Palette, and the Toasted Eyeshadow Palette (both C$60 each).
The original Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette contains 12 matte eyeshadows in cool and warm tones. Like In Bloom, there are 12 shades in here, organized into rows which let you create three easy looks or mix and match to create a custom eyeshadow look. Although it’s always good to have a selection of different formulas in your collection, I do feel like everyone should have a strictly matte one in their collection since the matte formula is so integral in an eyeshadow look. This particular palette is full of basic colours that can create any eye look. Since these palettes use their Amazonian Clay eyeshadows, each shade is infused with vitamin E and mineral pigments.
Finally, for the newest one the bunch, Toasted came out last year I believe and features 12 all-new warm shades. This one leans more towards oranges, browns, and coppers, but is the perfect going-out palette. Like the other two Tartelette palettes, each row is organized into three different looks and if you’re into smoky, then you need to pick this up. There are seven mattes and five shimmers in here, making it easy to do that person crimson smoky eye that will sure to have anyone commenting on your eye colour (I had so many people mention how blue my eyes are when I wore this). As someone who regularly wears a shimmery cream on my lid, a burnt orange in my crease as the transition, and a matte brown in my crease, this one is right up my alley. I’m wearing this palette in the photo below.
All three Tartelette palettes feature a creamy formula that glides on the lids and really it just comes down to what you’re going to be using the palettes for. In Bloom is the perfect everyday palette, Toasted is the party palette, and the original Tartelette is great to have in your collection since it’s all matte. I’m kinda obsessed with all three, so I don’t really have a favourite (although again, I have been using In Bloom for years and it’s still one of my absolute faves out of every palette I own).
I know that it’s tough choosing which palette is right for you (out of every brand there is on the market), but if you’re in the market for a new shadow palette, then definitely look at the Tartelette palettes, you will not be disappointed.
Do you own any of the Tartelette eyeshadow palettes? Which one is your favourite?
