Hey lovelies! Hope everyone is doing well. Winter isn't even upon us yet and already makeup companies have makeup spring collections in the works or have already made them and are ready for the spring of 2015. I was sent an email from tarte's website about a month ago, that they were going to sell their Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette for their new spring palette of 2015 and that it would be on sale for 5 days or as long as supplies last and then sell it to the public on Jan 2015. Of course I purchased it with out hesitation. I missed out on their matte palette last year because I thought the colors would not show up on my skin tone and the colors didn't appeal to me. The Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette however, looked beautiful and I knew this was a matte palette that I did not want to miss.
Tartlette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette retail for $44.00(0.053oz) and contains twelve matte shadows that are warm and cool tone colors. They are formulated without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sodium and gluten.
The packaging is really nice. I love the gold lettering against the ombre purple background.
The mirror is full size and does not flop down.
The eyeshadows are a bit smaller than usual. I love that the colors are printed on the palette.
Up close and personal shot of the pretty colors. :)
The color dreamer and multi-tasker are very similar and I think they could have done without one of those shades and replaced it with a more red toned brown.
Texture: Is a little on the dry side.
Pigmentation:The eyeshadows has great pigmentation considering that the shadows are on the dry side.
Blendability:The colors blend very well together.
Longevity: I wore the shadows for 7 hours before I notice a bit of fading, however it did not crease.
Over All, I think the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette is one of the neutral matte eyeshadow palettes to add to your collection. I also think is will be a popular palette for spring of 2015. The shadows have your typical matte browns from light to dark. Also, the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette has both warm and cool tones colors which makes this neutral palette versatile in creating day and night time looks. My only complaint about this eyeshadows is the texture. I felt the shadows were a bit dry, but not chalky. This palette would have been a perfect 10 if the shadows were a tad more velvety. However, it does not affect the great pigmentation of these matte shadows. The colors really blend well with one another which I think is also an important characteristic eyeshadows should have. Tarte you did a great job on this palette!
If you are looking for a great all matte palette than the Tartlette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow might just be what you are looking for. The palette will be available to the public on Jan 2015. However, you can purchase this palette online at Sephora if you are a VIB member.
Hope you enjoyed my this review and see you in my next blog post.
