The day I met the Tartelette palette was the best day in my Sephora haul memory book. I am completely anti-shimmer. ( yes I saidddd it). So when someone announced that Tarte had released an all matte palette I was ecstatic. Pause for a sec
Can we please marvel at this packaging. Who doesn’t love purple and gold! Best. Combo. Ever
Moving On. This palette is all matte as mentioned before and it comes with 12 cool tone purple shades. It does have some soft pinks/lilacs, but the majority of the palette is purple or deep purple. If you’re a smokey eye kinda girl then this is allllll you. Personally I don’t know what kind of eyeshadow style I like most but my favorite color is purple, my favorite color combo is purple/gold, my favorite eyeshadows are matte…soooo, needless to say, this palette belonged in my life.
Pigmentation: This palette takes the cake on pigment. There isn’t a single shade that doesn’t live up to the color in pan. How you swatch it in store is exactly how it will appear on your eye. Also for those of you who plan on buying this online, the colors are true to picture.
Blending: The colors that I have used thus far( mainly the ones on the colors on the right of the palette) blend great together. AS long as you have the right brush you shouldn’t have a problem!
Not perfect for people who prefer warm tones. This palette is definitely cool toned, so if you’re someone who is more comfortable with warmer tones then this may be a challenge for you.

- Too faced chocolate bar owners: If you have the chocolate bar palettes you may already have a lot of these colors, so this palette may not be as versatile for you.
Perfect for someone like who me who loves cool toned makeup, Loves super pigmented eyeshadows, looking for a good beginners pallete.
Yay or Nay
This product is a total yay for me! My first eyeshadow palette was the urban decay naked 3, which was super pretty, but the rosy pink colors played out very fast. This tarte palette has way more variety and the colors are subtle enough and I don’t feel intimidated to try different looks.
