This palette was the first ever high end eye shadow palette to appeal to me. I’ve only entered the high end eyeshadow palette game in the last year (and boy have the flood gates opened!).
So I am going to jump into the review before I go off on an unrelated tangent.
Shade range: The shade range of this palette is definitely on the cool toned side. Even though I’m more of a warm toned gal there are still many shades in this palette I adore.
Pigmentation: The shades are wonderfully pigmented and show up well on the eye. I always apply shimmer shades onto the lid with my finger (regardless of the palette) as I don’t have an eye brush that is great for applying lid shades.
Is there any
Do they blend well?: True to form with the tarte ‘Tartelette’ palettes, the formula of the shadows is so smooth & buttery that they blend incredibly well and with minimal fuss!
Finish of the shades: There are 2 shimmery shades, 1 satin shade and 9 matte shades. This palette definitely contains a lot of matte shades and has limited lid shade options.
Price: $69 AUD
Wearability: This palette is definitely super wearable. I personally find the only shimmery shade which works with a variety of eye looks is the shade ‘Funny girl’. The shade fire cracker is a dark shimmer bronze and the shade rocker is a cool toned light satin taupe. Many of the matte shades are wearable and versatile and 3 are extra dark to take part in a super glam eye look.
Packaging: Like all the tartlette palettes the outer packaging is super pretty & colourful. Quality wise, it feels luxurious and of good quality and it comes with a mirror. Also can I just say, the packaging of this palette (and all the tartelette palettes) is so photogenic, they makeup all my makeup flatlays look so good!
Pros: The shades are pigmented, smooth, blendable and easy to work with. There’s a very good variety of matte shades.
Cons: There are only 3 non-matte shades and only one, which is versatile with many eye looks. It definitely ranges on the cool toned side, I still enjoy using it but I don’t reach for cool tones much.
Would I repurchase this? No. I like it and I’m happy to have it but I’m very strict with what makeup I deem worthy to repurchase (as this makeup hoarder can’t very well go and repurchase her entire makeup collection).
Overall thoughts: The palette is very lovely, the formula of the shadows is incredible and so awesome to work with. Aside from wishing there were a few more shimmery shades that were versatile, it’s a great palette.
