tartelette swatches & review

Tartelette swatches and reviewHappy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week. Personally I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday… I am exhausted and desperate for the weekend! Thank gosh for coffee. Anyway…

Tarte is a brand I hadn’t tried before picking up the Tartelette palette, but after looking at swatches and hearing the reviews I had to give it a try. If you’ve been reading my blog regularly you probably know I love shimmer… and I didn’t own any matte palettes – so this filled that need perfectly!

I absolutely love the names of the shades… Free Spirit, Super Mom, Natural Beauty… They make me happy when I’m putting them on in the morning. The only shade I’ve had a bit of difficulties with is Bombshell, it just doesn’t seem to blend out as well as the rest – it could be my inexperience with matte shadows coming through, but even when swatching it just seemed different. Fashionista is that way too, but I typically only use black as a liner, so blending isn’t a concern for me.

As for the cost; 12 x 0.053 oz shadows for $53 CDN is an amazing price – 0.05 oz is the size of regular MAC and Urban Decay shadows, so you’re basically paying $4.50 a shade.

Do you prefer matte or shimmer shadows? Are there any other tarte products I should be checking out?

  1. I’ve been looking for a good palate and I LOVE these colors! Thanks for sharing, I’ve been interested in trying Tarte for awhile now.

    1. There have been a few times I’ve just dusted a pretty shimmer overtop…. something special about shimmery eyes – but this palette has definitely made me appreciate matte finishes! Thank you Babi 😀
