Tartelette Matte Eyeshadow Palette | Review + Swatches

“tarte “tarte “tarte “tarte If you're a matte eye shadow lover, you'll want to pay attention. I picked up the new Tartelette palette from Tarte a couple of weeks ago and I have a new favourite palette in my collection (of course, I have many favourites, but now this is one of them)! The Tartelette palette consists of 12 matte neutral eye shadows ranging from highlight to deep, and warm to cool shades. All of the shadows are smooth and not too powdery either. I absolutely love it. 

The palette is perfectly laid out, with shades going from light to dark down each column. The first column of shades consists of a yellow-toned highlight, the middle shadow is a pink-toned highlight, and the bottom shadow is a neutral ivory. The second column includes 3 gorgeous shadows that are perfect as transition shades for the crease. The third column has your midtone shades which would look great in the crease, under the eye, or on the lid for a smokey look. And the last column has dark shadows that again could be used in the crease, but could also be used as eyeliner or to smoke out any eye shadow look!

If you're a fan of neutral shadows, matte shadows, or just eye makeup in general I think this palette is definitely an asset to any collection! It also works well accompanying a shimmery shadow or palette to help balance out a look!

What do you think about the Tartelette palette? Do you think it's something you'll be adding to your collection this year?

  1. Maybe I'm not a neutral person, but I'm just not wowed by this palette, save for the mauve shade in the middle.

    1. Hmm, I guess you're not much of a neutrals person then! I use pretty much exclusively neutral shades on my eyes. A palette like this is great to use along with other shadows too. Say you want a colourful eyeshadow look, you can use your colourful shadows and then say a light tan colour to blend out the crease, or one of the highlight shades on the brow/inner corner! It definitely plays well with others :)

  2. I've actually never tried anything from Tarte but its a brand that I've been longing after for a pretty long time. I am a huge neutrals fan and this palette is right up my street. Those swatches look incredible! :)

    1. I've gotten really into Tarte over the past year or so! Their eyeshadows and blushes are so so nice! I think this palette is definitely worth picking up! :)
