New In: The Tarte Tartelette Tease Palette Review

The Tarte tartelette tease palette came into my life when I purchased the limited edition tartelette faves discovery set. This little eyeshadow kit contains six neutral eyeshadows (my fave) in a slim casing, making it perfect for travelling. I wouldn’t say any of the shades are particularly groundbreaking but there are some really solid neutrals in there, with a mix of matte shades interspersed with a couple of shimmers. It’s definitely a palette to check out if you are looking to start up your own Tarte make up collection.

The Palette

As mentioned before the palette contains 2 shimmer shades. They both have a soft texture, I did experience a little fallout when using them but nothing that couldn’t be brushed away. Sometimes I have used shimmer shadows that are very in your face, but these 2 were very understated. Sometimes I struggle a bit with matte shades but these are well formulated and in general give good colour payoff.

The Shades

Whisper – Described as a “light pink” by Tarte. It’s a very light peachy colour, and the one I struggled the most with getting to show up – probably because my skin is a similar colour. It is a little bit powdery and it took a couple of swipes to get the effect I desired.

Crush – Described as a “taupe shimmer”. This is a bronze shade and perhaps one of my favourites. As I mentioned I experienced a bit of fallout but I teamed it with my Too Faced shadow insurance as a primer to ensure maximum colour pay off.

Heartbreaker – Is a “matte brown” – it works as a great colour for the crease. Combined with crush and whisper you can achieve the perfect bronzed eye look.

Wink – a “light mauve” – with pinky tones and a matte finish. This is whispers slightly darker sister, but unlike the former the colour payoff from one swipe was great.

First Kiss – a “mauve shimmer” – the other shimmer shade in the palette. Shimmers are always my favourite in every palette, I can’t help it I love the sparkle! Again the payoff here is great, with a little fallout and a blendable texture.

BFF – “plum” – a gorgeous purple toned matte shade. It’s quite dark and again works great in the crease. I’d team this up with first kiss and wink for a pinky-purple eye look.

Have you tried eyeshadows from Tarte before? Do you have a stand out palette from their collection, or is this one already on your favourites list?

    Tarte eyeshadows are up there with my favourites, although not as creamy and good as something like the Anastasia Beverly Hills formula, I find them great to work with. The In Bloom Tartlette is one of my absolute favourite palettes though, largely because of how well the shades complement one another and how easy it is to use. They are pretty similar tones to these, so I think I’d love this one too. I’m super excited for their Toasted palette in Autumn! – Amy

  • These look great for everyday use!
