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 $30 at Sephora Canada and contains 6 x 0.85g cool toned eyeshadows. The eyeshadows in the Tartelette Tease palette are infused with Tarte’s 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. The gold around the pans is eye catching! I don’t have any complaints in the packaging department here. I would have liked this palette to be a little bit bigger for the price, I feel like you always get ripped off buying a mini palette or product vs. a regular size product but the quality of these shades are there.
Pigmentation & Shade Selection
The shades in the Tartelette Tease Palette 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 satin shade (first kiss), and a shimmer (crush). I can make at least three different day time looks with this palette, and since I rarely rock a smokey eye this is all I need. All the shades in this eyeshadow palette are very wearable.
I like that this colour story is soft and flirty, it’s exactly what I would expect from a palette called Tartelette Tease!
Tartelette Tease 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 Tartelette Tease palette is a great everyday palette for me, 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!
