Hue Review: Tartelette Toasted
You may have been expecting a LuLaRoe post from me today. Don’t worry, that’s coming but I just had to get a post up about the new Tartelette palette first! It was first available on Tarte’s website back on the 15th. So I have been stalking the release of this palette and I bought it right away! But it’s available at Ulta and Sephora tomorrow (the 29th). So I wanted to get up a review and swatches to help you decide!
I don’t normally do swatches but since I’m pairing the photos with a full review I made an exception. First of all, these shadows felt way creamier than I anticipated! They said online that these shadows were the same Amazonian clay formula as their other Tartelette palettes. But I disagree. They feel different to me and even the way they were pressed looks different to me! These have little vertical ridges and feel smoother than I remember. So they must have been pressed differently, right? Like I’ve said before, swatches are great but what I care about is how they perform on the eyes. These actually do swatch really well though. Before we get much deeper, let’s check out the shades swatched by row (with no primer underneath):
These swatch well and perform pretty well too! I will say that there is a lot more pickup than I expected. Definitely more than their other 2 Tartelette palettes. But they are incredibly smooth to blend so I don’t mind. These shades all go together really well and I felt pretty trendy with these peachy shades on my eyes. It was my first dive into peachy tones and this palette makes it easy! There were a few shades that were disappointing though: Candle and Crackle especially. Candle is super glittery with a lot of fallout. And Crackle is a deep brown but has little specks of gold glitter. I just don’t know how practical this shade is for me. But my favorite look to do is Cashmere in the crease, Warmth in the lower crease, Cozy in the outer V and either Sunrise or a shimmer on the lid.
Overall, I really do love this palette and think it’s worth the money. I can see myself using this palette all throughout the fall and winter! The shimmers do have some fallout but I find a flat synthetic brush minimizes it. And a setting spray/glitter glue would help a ton as well! If there are just one or two shades you want, I would suggest looking for dupes. Also, if you already have a peachy toned palette like Urban Decay Heat or one of the Too Faced peach palettes, you could probably pass on this. But with this palette you get some mattes, satins, and shimmers so it was definitely worth it for me!
