It all started in a one-bedroom apartment in 1999. Maureen Kelly, a self-confessed beauty addict, became frustrated with all the unhealthy, synthetic-laden cosmetics available in the stores. She then set out to create healthy, nourishing cosmetics and Tarte Cosmetics was born. Formulated without parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances (just to name a few), Tarte Cosmetics brings exceptional results to the everyday woman. And Tarte doesn’t just stop at the formulas – even their chic, runway-inspired packaging is eco-friendly!
This is the first of the Tarte Tartelette series, and in all honesty I recommend you get both just because Tarte's products are simply that good. I'd actually be willing to have my entire collection be composed purely of Tarte Cosmetics products. This palette is AMAZING -- the colors are incredibly pigmented, extremely smooth and blendable, have little fallout, and feature a great range of matte (!!!!) neutral shades. This palette leans more to cooler tones (the Tartelette in Bloom is the warmer range), but the color selection means you can create looks from everyday neutral eyes to dramatic smokey ones. There's also quite a lot of product per pan, and given that you don't need much when applying, this will last a looonnng time. I also adore the packaging: it's very sturdy, but still compact and light, with a beautiful purple cover and a HUGE mirror inside (yay!). It doesn't come with a brush, but given that the only eye product I've ever purchased that comes with a decent brush is Anastasia Beverly Hills, you're better off using your own brushes. But bottom line: this product is gorgeous, it's so very worth it, and it needs to be in your makeup collection. Truly.over 3 years ago
It's almost impossible to find a palette that has 'All matte' with neutral shades in the market and this one I can say was answer to my prayers! I think this is close to perfection! --- When it comes to shadows; they are dry, slightly powdery, thin (If that makes sense) and ofcourse MATTE. I'm also loving the mirror because it is actually useful! My favorite shades on this palette are the 'darker' ones. Worth it! :)over 3 years ago
Got this as my starting eyeshadow palette and I'm just astounded. I fell in love with this at first YouTube watch and am glad I tried it out. I'm a neutrals kind of girl so this palette is just perfect. Every shade is so pigmented and a stroke or two goes such a long way! The packaging is lovely as well.over 3 years ago
If Too Faced is well-known for their chocolate-smelling products, Tarte shoudl be well-known for the buttery velvety texture of their products! This palette has all my favorite matte shades! I reach for it almost everyday. Give that Tarte is not available in the Philippines and having 12 perfect matte shades in 1 palette, the price is a steal!over 3 years ago
One of them is a product Meghan Markle AND Kate Middleton swear by.
Get them together to see the difference.
