Sephora was having a bunch of tarte holiday items for sale online and this was one of the goodies besides many others I was able to get my hands on! These holiday items are gorgeous! I admit I was pretty hesitant to try this one out since tarte eyeshadows are sometimes hit or miss! I was lucky with the Showstopper palette because the eyeshadows had good texture, pigmentation and blendability!
I had such bad luck with the energy noir palette and felt I shouldn't spend this much time blending a transition color! Haha, that one didn't make it in my stash and had to be returned for the Tartelette which is beyond gorgeous, not only that, it blended like a breeze! It's my cup of tea! So when this holiday palette ended being on sale it as a gamble, and it was a gamble I won.
Even though there were product kickback, oh the colors are beautiful! It had cool tones, neutral and some warm tones and it passed my impatience with blending. This palette is perfect for fall because of the neutral greens and purple that is dark enough for the sultry season of Fall. I know I love my tartelette but I admit I've been using this palette ever since I've gotten it along with the tarte primer bb cream everyday! Loooooooove!
I actually purchased this from tarte.com since my online shopping was too slow and sat in my cart too long. That feeling where you should've bought something but unsure and ended up you need it in your life! Sounds so ridiculous, oh makeup lover and hoarder, but tarte.com still has this palette for sale for 26 I believe. If you love what you see, click on over to tarte.com !
My next purchase from Tarte are these lipstick butters that come with three lipsticks and one exfoliator for $36 yes this is a steal considering its $17 dollars for one and the exfoliator is $16! The pink packet comes with golden pink, watermelon, and tulip lipsticks. I do have to say that this isn't for everyone. I actually purchased this hoping it's exactly like too faced drenched lip cream but way cheaper, but it isn't. It's much more sheer, much more balmy feeling, and for me, not true to color as it is in the lipstick tube. Everything turned the same shades of pink and there were not much noticeable difference. There is also another pack like this that is of peachy nudes, if you think you are interested in these. This is purchasable through Ulta.com, it is an online only product.
