tarte femme naturale eyeshadow palette

June 25, 2010

I love love love this palette. Unfortunately now that I own 1 tarte palette I want more. They are simply spectacular. I love Maureen’s vision of make-up needing to look good when you pull it out of your purse to use it. I love all the purple boxes that the products and I love all fashionable compacts. They are so cute!

WAIT! Did you catch what it said in the top left corner on the front of the box?

Oh yes, free eyelid primer! sweet! Someone in make-up heaven must have been listening when I said the other day that I wanted the eyelid primer. 🙂

All kinds of good stuff!!

Seriously! How cute is this? With the flower with the zippered edge? Adorable!

This is no thin cheapy palette. This has a nice weight and thickness to it.

10 full size colors, a double ended brush, and a double ended eyeliner. This really is a spectacular deal. It costs $44. Now before you frugal-istas go wow thats alot for alot. First remember, you get what you pay for. You are getting good quality ingredients. And second. If you added up what it could cost for a double ended brush, a double ended eyeliner and 10 full size eyeshadows, I bet even with the cheap drugstore brands you’d have more into it then $44.

The colors are amazing. heavy pigmented and have great staying power.

Color Swatches from the first row:
From left to right: shimmering buff, golden peach, soft sand, shimmering sage, soft sienna

Color Swatches from the second row:
From left to right: golden tan, soft rose, golden plum, shimmering cocoa, golden navy

Also includes a step by step card with 2 complete looks to play with. I chose the first look, which used all the colors in row one, the goldish colored eyeliner. It was hard to get the camera to get a good shot, but it looked fantastic.

I love everything about this kit. I was quite surprised with how smooth and creamy the eyeliners were. Not hard and rough on the eyes like most traditional wooden eyeliners are, and the colors are beautiful. All ten colors of eyeshadow are very nicely pigmented. I didn’t need alot when applying and it stayed all day. I was also extremely impressed with my deluxe size eyelid primer that came with my set, that was a really nice surprise I wasn’t expecting that at all. My oily eyelids loved it and made my color stay strong without any creasing all day. I will do a seperate review of the eye lid primer next week.

I have absolutely no complaints with this product. Its awesome. Owning one makes you want to own them all! 🙂

Available at Sephora, QVC, and

    I have this palette and really like it. The only reason I don’t use it every day is because like it did for you, it made me want more Tarte palettes. Then there was this great sale… So, this palette has the shades for a great neutral eye with a splash of color. I am fair and can do a light day-time neutral eye, or it also has the shades to do a more dramatic neutral eye if that makes sense. The colors are true, I tend to turn so many shades red, and these don’t do that for me. The shadows are very pigmented, buttery soft and last. The shimmer is flattering and not over the top. The mattes are more of a satin, very flattering and not aging. I really like the primer as well. The brush is high quality, no cast off brush here. It doesn’t shed, picks up the perfect amount of pigment for a quick swipe, and fits in the palette, so it’s convenient.
