When I first got a glimpse of Tarte Cosmetics‘ newest palette, Tartelette ($44), I knew I had to have it. I have tons of neutral matte eyeshadow palettes but something about this one spoke to me.
Tarte’s newest palette features 12 exclusive all-matte eyeshadows infused with their signature Amazonian clay. Each eyeshadow is named to inspire, celebrate and empower women (I think the eyeshadow names are what spoke to me). The palette also comes with a step-by-step guide for creating a daytime and a nighttime look using the shadows. I actually wish Tarte included a step-by-step guide for four looks instead of two. I don’t think their daytime guide was very practical, most women are not going to wear a plum eye makeup look with purple liner during the day.
The colors in this palette are quite beautiful and very pigmented. They truly are long-wear eyeshadows, I had a hard time taking off the color Fashionista (let’s just say it took a few cotton pads to really get the color off).
No matter what color your eyes are, this palette comes with enough shades that you can create beautiful looks to bring out your eyes.
