Let’s just talk about how I squealed like a little girl when I opened this up Christmas morning. My parents picked this up because they knew it was something I wouldn’t buy myself normally or I would have to save up my money! I’ve been eyeing Tarte Cosmetics for awhile trying to see if I could justify a $20 mascara but now I don’t have to face that obstacle for a while.
Let’s go over what you get.
You get this eye shadow palette which I have mixed feelings about it. There are 16 shades that range from matte to shimmery ones.
Here’s a shot of the palette.
Here are the swatches.
Stand out colors : Beaming Bronze & Hot Cocoa.
Color Fails: Tickled Pink & Grateful Grey.
Stand out Colors: Truley Taup, Peachy Keen, Roasted Chestnut, and Butter cream Frosting.
Color Fails: Ideal Ivory & Pumped Up Purple.
The color failures are really just a result of patchy swatches, unblendablity, and lack of pigmentation.
The next thing you get is middle box contains 2 Lights, Camera, Lashes mascaras & 2 SmolderEYES Waterproof Liners in Fig and Brown.
The pigmentation on these eyeliners are AMAZING! The Brown blends a little bit better than the Fig but both are buildable.
The last thing you get is 4 Lipsurgence Lip Creams.
The packaging is beautiful on these and all are colors that would work for everyday or for a special occasion.
The pigmentation is FREAKING AWESOME! All of the colors would work on EVERYONE’s skin tones. My favorite is Thoughtful which is a nice neutral brown. (also I spelled thoughtful incorrectly – please don’t judge me too harshly)
