I’m back! Not that I ever really left, but I was under the weather for a while and now I’m back to my old self. Not that I had a “new” self… expressions are odd sometimes. I got my hands on the Tartelette Tease palette over the holidays and I can finally use it without worrying about getting sick germs all over it. Yay! Here’s my thoughts…
Packaging: This is a cute palette, albeit small. It fits in the palm of my hand and has a magnetic closure with a mirror inside. The gold around the pans is eye catching and goes with the pink and purple.
Price: Currently this is sitting at $30 (CAD). I am almost certain that it was listed at $25 for a time but I could be wrong. As cute as this palette is $30 is a bit much for six little eyeshadow pans, but it’s Tarte so the quality is there.
Pigment + Shade Selection: The shades are fairly pigmented. The lightest shades Whisper and Wink don’t show us as well as the others, especially on fair skin, but they make a good base for the other shadows. This palette comes with four Mattes (Whisper, Wink, heartbreaker, & bff), a slight shimmer (first kiss), and a glitter (crush). I can make at least four different day time looks with this palette, and since I rarely rock a smokey eye this is all I need. All shades are very wearable, and you have Bff to add some darker tones to your eye look.
I like that the shades are all soft and flirty, it’s exactly what I would expect from a palette with Tease in the name!
Final Thoughts: This palette works for me. It would be a great addition to a makeup travel bag, and perhaps the only palette I would think about taking on vacation because of the quality and small size. It really is a “Teaser” of the other Tarte palettes, a perfect half size of half the eyeshadows for half the price!
