I have wanted this since it was released! I received this beautiful tarte tartelette in bloom palette for Christmas from my son. He knows that eyeshadows are what I really want for Christmas.
The colors of the shadows included are exactly what I want for everyday use! These shadows are pigmented, smooth, so easy to work with and blendable. Getting a beautiful eye look takes half the amount of time it does with other shadows.
I love the way that you can go across and break this palette down into quads, creating a beautiful eye look using those four shadows together.
As you will notice in the swatches below, the shadows apply much darker than they appear in the pans. These swatches are applied with a dry compact flat brush and I applied a shadow primer to my arm.
- charmer (off white) matte
- jetsetter (warm taupe) matte
- rocker (shimmering taupe) shimmer
- smokeshow (black brown) matte
- flower child (peachy nude) matte
- smarty pants (tan) matte
- firecracker (bronze copper) shimmer
- activist (dark brown) matte
- funny girl (champagne) shimmer
- sweetheart (peach) matte
- rebel (chestnut brown) matte
- leader (aubergine) matte
Look at the difference in the color in the pan and the swatch on the shades jetsetter, sweetheart, and leader!
Packaging is super slim and so pretty, with a nice big mirror inside the cover. The shadows have a light sweet white chocolate scent to them… I love that!
While wearing and even more so when swatching these shadows I realized that a few of the shades reminded me of shades from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. The similar shadows are: flower child/ foxy, firecracker/chopper, and rocker/YDK. (I didn’t add swatches of flower child and foxy because as you can tell from the above photo neither of them show up on my pasty white pale skin.)
Here are my cons about this palette…
1.) There’s a lot of fallout for several of the shades. If you look closely in the above swatches you will notice the shadows that have the most fall out. When applying the shadows I really need to tap my brush off and then tap it off again before applying.
2.) There is really no need for both the deep brown shades: smokeshow and activist. They are so similar to each other that having both of them in the same palette is kind of a waste. I would have preferred another lid, transition, or crease shade instead of two dark similar shades.
*If you have cooler undertones then the original Tartelette Palette is probably a better choice for you. It is also a completely matte palette. I don’t own it yet, but I think that it is absolutely beautiful and will probably end up purchasing it eventually.
