Just when you told yourself you don’t need another eyeshadow palette, Tarte release the Tartelette Toasted palette. If you have been reading my recent posts, you will know I purchased the Tartelette Vault. You can find my post on that here. Having now used and swatched the palettes, I am discussing them individually. Hopefully giving you the information you need, if you are thinking about purchasing any of these eyeshadow palettes.
Tartelette Toasted Palette
The toasted palette is the latest addition to the Tartelette palettes. If you haven’t already guessed by the packaging, this palette is full of warm-toned shadows. There are 12 different shades, 7 are mattes and 5 are shimmers:
- s’more (pinky beige)
- sunrise (golden beige)
- sunset (bronze)
- crackle (brown with gold flecks)
- cashmere (pale peach)
- warmth (terracotta)
- flame (metallic rust)
- cozy (brick)
- candle (champagne)
- latte (tan)
- simmer (copper)
- fireside (deep plum)
I really love the packaging on all of the Tartelette palettes. This one looks so gorgeous the gold packaging with the warm eyeshadows. The palettes are sleek and will be easy to travel with. It is the perfect mix of browns, terracotta and bronze tones. I love the mirror on the inside that is the size of the palette lid. It makes it really easy to get nice and close to your eyes, achieving a very precise application.
Photos do not do this palette justice, honestly, if you are thinking about buying this, you will not be disappointed. These eyeshadows are so gorgeous in person. When you open the palette, you will notice there is a sweet smell; similar to white chocolate or marshmallow.
Eyeshadow formula & kickback?
Before I purchased the Tartelette Vault, I watched lots of youtube videos of people using the palette. There were a few who said the kickback made the palette very difficult to work with. I found that there was a lot of loose shadow in the pan after I had dipped my brush in, but not an overwhelming amount. Once I had finished I just blew the excess shadows off, they didn’t mix together or mess up the palette at all.
After swatching the palette you will know what the formula is like and can adjust application accordingly. For example, the colour crackle has gold glitter in that tends to fall out easily. I held a face wipe to the edge of my eye to catch the excess shadow. Once I had finished doing my makeup I was extremely impressed with how it came out. The shadows are highly pigmented and are very easy to blend.
If you are thinking about buying this palette, I say go for it. The pigmentation of the shadows are of a really good quality. This does not affect how easy they are to work with, I find the shadows extremely easy to blend and they lasted all day without creasing. I would, however, bear in mind if you already own similar palettes, such as the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. But you can never have too many makeup palettes, so the choice is yours. All of the Tartelette palettes look really gorgeous in person, I was extremely impressed when I unpacked them.
Yes, the shadows are powdery and you will see kickback on the palette. Some of the reviews I have seen really slate this palette for this. I have found I can just blow the dust off and it has not messed up the palette. Once you have used the shades a couple of times you get a feel for their formula and can adjust your application method in order to prevent fallout. This does not put me off the palette at all and I am really impressed with it in general. If you do your eye makeup before foundation you shouldn’t have any issues. Having now tried the Tartelette in Bloom palette, I feel the formulas aren’t that different. Bear in mind this could be due to my brushes and how they pick up the product. There could also be fluctuation in the formula in the palettes themselves.
