Tarte 'Tartelette in Bloom' Palette Review

Monday, 25 April 2016

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend. Today was my first day back at work after a lovely week and a half off so needless to say, it was a busy one and I'm now in need of a well deserved rest! I haven't quite had time to put together my Sephora haul yet since I've returned from the states (it's been a busy few days!) but I wanted to start reviewing some of the products I'd had the chance to test out properly as I've completely fallen in love with a few of the products! 

The 'Tartelette in Bloom' was one of the first products I broke into as soon as I got back to my apartment in Vegas, so it seemed fitting to feature this palette first on my blog. The Tartelette in Bloom Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette was released as part of their Spring collection, and is a new take on the ever popular Tartelette palette, which was released sometime back last year. The original Tartelette palette features an array of matte pinks, creams and purples, whereas the Tartelette in Bloom leans more towards the neutral side, with warmer, richer shades of creams, browns and taupes in both matte and metallic finishes. 

Despite the fact that this palette houses some of the prettiest neutrals I've ever laid eyes on ('Funny Girl' is my new all time fave!), the texture is also something to behold. There's not one dud shade in this palette - the mattes are creamy and buttery soft, and the metallics actually apply with a bright metallic shade...and don't even get me started on how easy these shadows are to blend out. You might be thinking 'not another neutral palette', but trust me, this is one you need in your collection, and I'm all for splashing out on shades you know you'll actually wear regularly. Whilst the palette is thin and compact (major plus points there), it contains 12 eyeshadows and the variety in shades means it'll be perfect for creating simple, everyday looks, or more dramatic smokey looks - making it perfect for this desk to dance floor situations. I mean, just look at these swatches (all of the hearty eyed emojis): 

Charmer (off white), Flower Child (peachy nude) and Funny Girl (champagne)

Jetsetter (warm taupe), Smarty Pants (tan), and Sweetheart (peach)

Rocker (shimmering taupe), Firecracker (bronze), and Rebel (chestnut brown)

Smokeshow (black brown), Activist (dark brown) and Leader (aubergine) 

As you can probably tell, I'm completely in love with this palette. It has everything I'd want from a neutral palette and the formula of the shadows is up there with some of my favourites such as Too Faced and Urban Decay. It's also worth mentioning that Tarte products are all cruelty free and vegan friendly, along with containing no paragons, gluten, phthalates and mineral oil - what more could you ask for? If you're a UK gal like myself and haven't got any trips to the states planned, then you're in luck - Tarte now ships to the UK from their website here and are also available in QVC! 

Lots of Love,

  3. I love the look of this palette, but can't help but feel it's very similar to the Stila Eyes Are the Window to the Soul palette, which is a lot more accessible in the UK! There are quite a few things from Tarte that I'd love to try, though! Great post, lovely swatches xx
