Tarte Tartelette 2 In Bloom Amazonian Clay Palette | Review and SwatchesSaturday, March 12, 2016
An impulse buy in store. It was just a causal stroll in Sephora one day during lunch. The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons (S$79) palette was launched together with this - Tarte Tartelette In Bloom (S$69) palette and I liked both from watching a few YouTube videos. So I went to swatch both palettes side by side and the Tartelette in Bloom definitely won me over. I can see myself using all the shades in this palette, whereas the Chocolate Bon Bons had quite a few shades that I just know that I will never reach for.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the amazing packaging......
It is beautiful. Simple and nice. It is really compact and comes with a huge ass mirror! This might just be the perfect traveling palette.
Came with two eye look tutorials. Helpful!
Love the size of the palette. This is a simple bronze-y eye look I did with this palette. Close up photo at the end of this post.
p.s. the shadows smells heavenly - vanilla cocoa cupcakes
It is clear that each row has their own theme of shades.
From cool tone taupes, to warm browns, and rich reds.
Charmer is a matte bone colour. I use this all over the lid and also to highlight my brow bone.
Jetsetter is a matte cool tone brown.
Rocker is a metallic taupe brown shade.
Smokeshow is a matte dark charcoal black.
Flower Child is a matte beige shade.
Smarty Pants is a matte warm brown. I love this in the crease.
Firecracker is an ultra metallic bronze. My favourite shade in the whole palette and probably the reason that made me get it. I love to mix this with a bit of Funny Girl as a lid shade.
Activist is a matte dark brown.
Funny Girl is a metallic champagne shade. Not as pigmented as the other two shades but it is perfect for a pop of light on the center of the lids or as inner corner highlight.
Sweetheart is a matte pink shade.
Rebel is a matte warm deep brown. Another of my favourite shades. I love to blend this in the outer crease.
Leader is a matte deep maroon / burgundy shade.
Quick and simple day time look. I have Smarty Pants and Rebel in the crease. Firecracker and Funny Girl mixed on the lids. Leader to deepen the outer v and a tiny bit of Activist on the outer lash line.
Really pleasantly surprised by this palette and I do recommend it if you're on the hunt for a neutral everyday palette.
