Sometimes when my family and I travel, I don't really like to bring all my makeup because I mostly have palettes of eyeshadows, palettes of blushes, and palettes of bronzers. I wanted something light that has EVERYTHING or mostly everything. When Tarte launched the showstopper palette, I knew this was the answer. I would take this to my trip to Hawaii too which would be perfect. Just bring mascara, foundation, eyeliner, and lipstick to complete! This tarte showstopper palette is such a handy little palette. It has six eyeshadows, a bronzer, blush, and a highlight! It's great for on the go!
As you can see from the picture above, you have a transition shade which is very important in a palette. There are also the dark defining shades that will accentuate your eye shape even more that will complete your eye look. In my opinion, the texture of these eyeshadows are very buttery, which means it is very easy to blend. I have read reviews of their previous round palettes with different textures, so I am very happy that I purchased this one. The only reason I gave it a 9/10 score is because I had trouble with the highlighter's staying power. It lasted only about 4 hours on me before it faded. In conclusion, this is still a great buy considering it has a full size blush! I think a regular tarte blush cost about $28 dollars, so If you were to buy these separately, it is well over the selling price.
