I recently picked up the Tartelette in Bloom palette, the second in the range on Tartlette palettes, by the brand Tarte Cosmetics. I found mine at Sephora, but it can also be found at Ulta, or Tartecosmetics.com.
The palette retails for $45.00, which is pretty standard for Tarte, and the same as the first Tartelette palette, get it here from Ulta!
For me, this palette seemed like the perfect everyday, travel, holy grail eyeshadow collection. Incorporating warm matte shadows with many transition shades, dark matte shades for adding definition, and shimmery lid shades for a pop of sparkle, any look can be created from this palette.
The packaging is absolutely stunning, the bright floral pattern encapsulates the “blooming” motif, and the sturdy gold packaging makes the palette fell much more luxurious.
The way the shadows were laid out was every well thought out, with each row color coordinating to suggest a perfect eyeshadow look to wear. The names on all the shadows are so cute and unique, great job Tarte!
Now for the swatches! the texture of these shadows are slightly stiff, so not much fallout, and a medium-high pigmentation with one swatch. Blendability on the eyes is great, my favorite shades for transition/crease are smarty pants, sweetheart, and flower child 🙂
Here is the top row, with and without flash: Charmer, Jettsetter, Rocker and Smokeshow
The next row is more neutral: Flower child, Smarty pants, Firecracker, and Activist.
The last row is for all you diehard warm eyeshadow lovers: Funny girl, sweetheart, rebel and Leader.
This palette is a definite hit! It is compact, versatile, and so beautiful! Pick it up next time you want to pamper yourself!
As always, let me know your thoughts on this palette if you have tried it, and let me know what to test out next!
