I’m back! 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 Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Tease Palette over the holidays and I can finally use it without worrying about getting sick germs all over it. Yay! Let’s talk makeup!
Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Tease Palette Review
The Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Tease Palette retails for $30CAD and contains 6 x 0.85g cool toned eyeshadows. The shadows in the Tartelette Tease palette are infused with Tarte Amazonian Clay.
The Tartelette Tease Palette is a cute, albeit small. It fits in the palm of my hand and has a magnetic closure with a mirror inside. I love the gold! I don’t have any complaints in the packaging department here. This palette does feel a little bit small for the price however when you calculate the value of this palette vs. the Tartelette in Bloom palette you get literally half the shadows for half the price. A full size palette from Tarte is about $60CAD for 12 shades. These mini palettes are a great way to try out Tarte’s eyeshadows without spending big on a full palette.
As you can see from the product photos the Tartelette Tease palette is cool toned. The shades aren’t so cool toned that they are grey against the skin but I definitely get a different vibe from this palette then I do from the Tartelette Flirt palette which is all warm toned shades. This colour story is soft and flirty, it’s exactly what I would expect from a palette called Tartelette Tease!
I think that all the shades work together well, however Whisper and Wink could have been much more distinct from each other. Against my skin tone they look almost the same on the eyes.
I really like that there is a gold shimmer shade (Crush) to take your look from day to night as well as a satin purple/pink shade (First Kiss). I love wearing First Kiss all over my eyelids during the day. I feel so put together with that shade on my eyes! The brown matte shade Heartbreaker is great for deepening the outer V, as is bff. That purple matte can be used to create a beautiful halo eye or to deepen the outer V so it’s definitely an interesting shade to have.
Pigmentation, Fallout & Blend
The shadows in the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Tease palette are very pigmented, especially when applied directly over a tacky primer or concealer as a base. The lightest shades Whisper and Wink don’t show up well on my eyes because of my pale skin tone but I tend to use one or the other to set my eyeshadow base anyways.
Honestly I rarely experience fallout with these shades. The only shade that might give you a bit of trouble is Crush and even then you can avoid this by tapping off your brush. The formula of this palette is incredibly smooth. The shades glide on the eyes and the mattes don’t give me any trouble blending. The Tartelette Tease palette would be a great palette for someone just getting into makeup who wants to experiment with non-drugstore formulas. I think it’s pretty fool proof!
Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette Swatches
All of the shades in the palette swatched pretty well on my arm, but what matters is how the shades perform on the eyes. As I said Whisper and Wink don’t show up the best against my pale skin but Whisper is the ideal shade for setting my eye primer and Wink is a good first transition shade.
First Kiss is stunning on the eyes, I wear it all over my lid most of the time with Crush popped into the centre of my eyelid for some sparkle. I love that the Tartelette Tease palette contains a cool toned purple shade. It’s great for the outer corners of my eyes, but if I’m not feeling the purple I can grab the shade Heartbreaker which is a little bit of a warmer brown.
The Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Tease palette is a great everyday palette, especially in the Fall & Winter. It would be a great addition to any travel makeup bag and it could very well be the only palette I would think about taking on vacation because of it’s size and quality. It really is a “Teaser” for other Tarte Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes!
