I recently purchased this beauty from Hautelook when they were having a Tarte flash sale. I am very happy to say that I am soooooo in LOVE with this palette.
If you are not very familiar with Tarte – they are an amazing brand. All of their products are high quality and worth the money. They are cruelty free, vegan friendly and DO NOT contain any parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate and gluten. Makeup that is great for your skin, can it get any better?
This palette was sold last year to celebrate 10 years of cruelty free beauty. It was a Sephora exclusive. This palette retails for $44, but has a value of $120. Amazing, right? The packaging is super cute. It is a gold studded purple palette that is refillable and reusable. It comes with 10 full-size eye shadows, a double-ended eyeliner, a full size eye shadow brush and a deluxe sample of Lights, Camera Lashes.
Here is a brief description of the eyeshadows –
Top (left to right) – matte soft pink, shimmering silver gray, shimmering gold, shimmering copper, shimmering amethyst.
Bottom (left to right) – shimmering plum, matte black, shimmering chocolate, shimmering green, shimmering teal.
Here are some swatches that I took of the shadows and eyeliner-
I think this palette is great for so many different looks. It is mostly shimmer, but it is great for Holidays, special occasions and going out. The colors are very rich and pigmented. It is also great for that perfect smoky eye. This is a great palette to add to your makeup collection and I highly recommend picking it up if you can still find it. Keep your eye out for it on Hautelook, they may have it on the next Tarte sale. If you do already own this palette, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
