Tarte - Tartelette Tease

You know when you keep seeing a palette EVERYWHERE and you think to yourself, hmm... I need that! (When you really don't?!) I'm sure we've all been there. Well, Tartelette - In Bloom is the one doing that to me. The colours look so pretty, and everyone keeps raving about it. I decided to make a Sephora purchase, and I noticed that they were offering a smaller version called Tartelette Tease, and it was a little more affordable than the bigger palette. I decided to splurge and ordered one for myself.

Look how tiny the box is! I wasn't expecting it to be THIS small when I ordered it. As you can see it's six shadows, which range from darker to lighter. Some are matte, and others have a shimmer.

The packaging is like a sturdy cardboard. But I love the purple, pink, and gold theme!

What it is:
A perfectly petite everyday eye shadow palette featuring six flirty shades.

What it is formulated to do:
Create amazing shadow looks with this clay-infused, pocket-perfect version of tarte’s bestselling Tartelette™ palette. It features four everyday matte shadows paired with two captivating lusters so you can refresh, define, and transition your eyes from day to evening. The flirty, flattering shades feature lid, crease, and highlight pairings so tartelettes can create modern, alluring looks without the guesswork. Powered by tarte’s signature Amazonian clay formula, these shadows offer the same pigmented payoff, blendability, and wear time as with the original tartelette palette, but in a chic, petite case.

This palette contains:
- 6 x 0.03 oz Eye shadows in Whisper (light pink), Crush (taupe shimmer), Heartbreaker (brown), Wink (light mauve), First Kiss (mauve shimmer), BFF (plum)

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Phthalates

Oh my gosh! Look at those colours! (Ignore the blinding light in the right corner! I'm trying to work on my camera/lighting skills!) The compact itself comes with a mirror which is super helpful.

Let me tell you which exact colours come in the palette. I'm going to start from the top, and go left to right. We have, whisper, crush, and heartbreaker. On the bottom we have wink, first kiss, and bff. These are all shades that can be used on anyone, and I love the many looks you can create with such an easy to use palette. I did some swatches on my arm..

From top to bottom we have... whisper, wink, crush, first kiss, heartbreaker and bff.

You can almost not even see whisper on my arm, but it would be good to use as a base for your shadows. I really love the shimmer on crush! I think thats my favourite shade in the whole palette. (I really wish I had some better lighting, seriously!)

Overall, I like that these are more subtle, every day shades, that can be used for a simple or dramatic look. I did find that these eyeshadows were a little chalky though. But I think it is the perfect size where it won't take up a lot of space in your purse or travel bag, and again the shadows can be used for many looks. It also smells great - like vanilla!

If you're interested in trying a Tarte palette, but aren't sure you want to commit to a full size palette, then this might be the one for you! Sephora has them for $25 Canadian!
