Love this new Tartelette Eyeshadow Palette by Tarte Cosmetics! I just received it in the mail from Sephora this week——in the nick of time for Valentine’s Day!
Always on the quest for new eye colors, I couldn’t resist this lovely natural-hued palette. I have noticed several makeup sets offered from a variety of retailers with Tarte products that included this palette, however I bought this palette on its own. I also picked up a makeup brushes set that was on sale and received some fun samples of other products. All of which, I’ll also share in this post.
All 12 eyeshades are never-seen-before matte, clay-infused, longwear colors. They blend together easily and allow for endless classic, natural looks. Colors within:
- Free Spirit – cream
- Force of Nature – medium nude
- Dreamer – warm darker brown
- Multi-Tasker – deep cool brown
- Caregiver – pale cool pink
- Natural Beauty – mauvish warm taupe
- Best Friend – deep mulberry
- Bombshell – dark plum brown
- Super Mom – fair nude
- Wanderer – light tan
- Power Player – medium grey-taupe
- Fashionista – true black
Today I wore these colors for a medium-dark daytime look: Best Friend as a crease color with a light application, Bombshell as an eyeliner color heavier on the top lash line, and a combo of Force of Nature more center-lid and Natural Beauty on the rest of the lid. I’m very pleased with this set. I may use it in the future with a pale glittery beige center lid to create a more dramatic effect (rarely do I use all matte or all sparkle eyeshadows for one look).
- 1.50g/0.053oz each shadow tray

I also picked up a Sephora brush set that was on sale. The case is slightly gold and the brushes have cream handles.
The five natural/synthetic combination fiber brushes are: 1.) all-over shadow brush, 2.) small shadow brush, 3.) angled shadow brush, 4.) rounded crease brush and 5.) flat eyeliner brush. These are a nice size with handles 6.25 inches long on each, up to where they meet the bristles. They work well in both cream and powder shadows.
And, as usual, selected free samples were included. I chose three scent samples——two for my Valentine and one for me, a Mark Jacobs lipstick sample in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (very rosy mauve), Make Up For Ever Smoky Extra Mascara, an eye makeup remover and Murad Age-Diffusing Serum. All in all, a pretty good order!
