Looking for a neutral palette that serves well for day and night looks? I would consider getting the Tartelette in Bloom palette. The palette has 12 shades and is compact, making it easy to travel with. I purchased the Tartelette Vault (Check out the post here) and am giving you my opinion on each of the palettes individually. If you prefer warm shades, the Tartelette Toasted palette will be perfect for you, take a look here.

Tartelette in Bloom Palette
This palette is the first one I had my eye on from Tarte (until I discovered the Tartlette Vault). I am a big fan of neutral shadows, it is pretty much all I own and will wear. I feel this palette is extremely versatile and if you were to only buy one palette, this has everything you could need in it.
There are 9 matte & 3 shimmer shades:
• charmer (off white)
• jetsetter (warm taupe)
• rocker (shimmering taupe)
• smokeshow (black brown)
• flower child (peachy nude)
• smarty pants (tan)
• firecracker (bronze copper)
• activist (dark brown)
• funny girl (champagne)
• sweetheart (peach)
• rebel (chestnut brown)
• leader (aubergine)
I really love the packaging of the Tartelette palettes, this is my favourite design out of the three and the base of the palette is gold. The eyeshadows have a really nice marshmallow/white chocolate scent, it is very sweet but not overpowering. I really like that these palettes have a mirror in the whole of the lid, it makes for a very precise application.
Eyeshadow formula & application
The shadows are a really soft and buttery formula. They make for a really nice and blended application without having to actually work hard to blend the shadows together. In my opinion, the shadows are a little less powdery than the ones in the Toasted palette, meaning there is a little shadow on the pan once it has been applied to your brush. But it can just be dusted off and doesn’t mess up the other shades. This to me really isn’t an issue at all. Some of the shimmer shades apply best with a finger in order to get the best colour pay off.
This is a great palette, that I will get a lot of use out of. The colours are versatile, allowing you to create looks for any occasion. The formula of the shadows makes them extremely easy to work with and blend together without hardly any effort. I apply concealer as a base and have never experienced any problems with these shadows creasing and they last all day. My favourite part of this palette is the number of shadows that can be used to build colour. Applying eyeshadow this way makes it easier to achieve the blended gradient effect. I would highly recommend this palette to anyone who loves neutral eyeshadows.
