Review: Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Today I will be reviewing the newest Tarte palette called “Tartelette” which is an all matte palette containing neutral, everyday colors that would look great on everyone. Tartelette contains twelve eyeshadow pans that are each 0.053 oz. Just like all Tarte products, this palette does not contain parabens or mineral oil. It is dermatologist tested and contains their famous Amazonian clay ingredients that they are known for. According to Tarte, the twelve colors are “inspired by real women just like you” with names such as “dreamer”, “best friend”, and “super mom”.

The eyeshadows feel buttery and soft, and the colors can be built up with each swipe. None of the eyeshadows felt gritty and they did not have fallout. Out of all twelve eyeshadows the only issues with pigment were Multi Tasker and Bombshell. Multi Tasker and Bombshell applied a little patchy but with eyeshadow primer they should be fine. I personally use Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it really helps with blending and the longevity of my eyeshadows throughout the day. This palette is a must have for neutral lovers, fellow Tartelettes, and anyone who prefers mattes. this.

Below are photos of the palette and swatches without primer. For reference my MAC shade is NC35, Urban Decay Naked Skin shade is 6, and Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation is tan honey.

This palette is currently only sold at Sephora and, but will be available on Tarte’s website and possibly in other cosmetics stores in January 2015. The cost is $44.00 USD.
