TARTE TARTELETTE IN BLOOM PALETTE | SWATCHES & REVIEW
Over the past month, I've had the series on the blog called 'Beauty Edit' where I would keep my eye on the latest releases that I think might be worthy of a sport in my everyday line-up. I definitely don't pay as much attention to new products as I used to in the past as I prefer to streamline my makeup collection in this time of my life. This specific palette is a new release but as mentioned in my latest Sephora haul video, as soon as I walked into Sephora and looked at the palette in person, I was instantly stunned. Scroll down to end of this post to see the swatches and review, but in the meantime I thought I'd give you some pictures of the palette to browse through...
I know… I’m a little late to the party. I’ve been keeping this palette to myself for the last two weeks, but I really wanted to make sure that it was worth its salt before I shared with you just how good this is. I was dead set keen on nabbing their latest offering, the ‘in bloom’ palette something which felt a little lacking from Tarte’s original Amazonian Clay Palette. Spoiler, just like the original, the pigmentation is excellent, overall.

REVIEW OF THE PALETTE
The shadows are all formulated with Tarte's signature Amazonian Clay to deliver incredible colour payoff, lasting power and blendability. All of the shadows are absolutely amazing, the matte shades are some of the best I have ever encountered. They are super silky, ultra creamy and smooth. They are slightly powdery especially the light matte shades but in the best possible way. The powdery aspect only translates to smooth even pigmentation similar to Lorac or Kat Von D powders. Kat Von D eyeshadows have tons of kickoff but the Tarte palette has some kickoff, but translates as smooth and creamy when applied on the lids. All of the shades (even the shimmers) are super vibrant and work well on dark skin as it's packed with pigment which translates to intense payoff on the lids. They all blend beautifully with just a few strokes of your brush and are all around incredibly easy to work with.
What really surprised me about this palette wasn’t how it was, but the scent. It’s a little bit of a cross between Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Palette and a fresh marshmallow plucked straight from the bag, and makes the whole palette seem that much sweeter (as long as you have a sweet tooth like me, that is!).
