If you have been following Weeks of Beauty for a little while now, you know that I love the little eyeshadow palettes by Tarte (Dutch reviews here and here). Now with the warm shades trend going on in cosmeticsworld, it was no surprise that Tarte would launch a little palette with warm tones. A non-surprise that I was very pleased with though!
As you can see I’ve already given this little palette a lot of love already because I love the color selection! Obviously for a palette with only six shades there’s not much to choose from, but for a few basic looks it’s perfect for me. I do need to say that I miss an inner corner and brow bone highlighting shade though. But that’s not too much of a problem for me because I am happy to use my cheekbone highlighter for that. However, I would have loved this palette even more if either ‘Hotline’ or ‘Playful’ would have been a shimmery highlighting shade.
Gaze is the perfect matte transistion shade. Playful goes in the crease and the beautiful Touch or Passion goes on the eyelid. That’s it for my most basic looks possible. For more definition I add Snuggle to the crease or outer corner as well and if I want it a little different and more orange-ish, I go for Hotline instead of Playful.
As usual, the eyeshadows have a delicious subtle vanilla scent. The palette has a nice mirror in it – also really practical because when I only throw this eyeshadow palette in my makeup bag, it’s usually because I don’t want to carry a lot with me. Also, I think it’s a loss if a eyeshadow palette doesn’t have a mirror in it because I’m so used to it, that I already miss it and have to much in my hands when I have to hold an separate mirror.
Also just like I am used from the Tarte palettes: the shadows are creamy and extremely pigmented. The shimmery shades look close to foiled: they are beautiful.
I find that Tarte eyeshadows are always very easy to apply and blend. The pigment also does it’s work after being blended. Only downside though is that I usually do get some fall out when applying the shadows. It’s not a dealbreaker for me though because I’ll just apply the shadows before everything else on my face so I can clean up the fall out without ruining my complexion makeup.
Two simple looks with the Tarte tartelette flirt eyeshadow palette. On the left I was okay without a brow bone highlightshade but on the right I did my inner corner and brow bone highlight with a different palette.
I compared all the little eyeshadow palettes. The (horizontal) upper set of swatches are the tarteist pro to go eyeshadows. The six swatches on the down left are tartelette flirt shadows and the six swatches on the down right are tartelette tease shadows.
If you want to try out the Tarte eyeshadow quality or if you are looking for a nice, basic and mostly small eyeshadow palette, then one of these little ones is perfect for you! Tartelette flirt is warm, tartelette tease is cool and tarteist pro to go is a little of both.
