Love this palette! I had the vol. 1 and used it daily as my go to face makeup. At first I was disappointed that the eye shadows in vol. 2 were not all matte, however once I tried the shimmer shadows I fell in love. They are NOT glitter as I had feared but a really beautiful shimmer helps to brighten up and accent my eyes. The powders have great pigment and apply great with a brush. They are not drying and somehow last all day. My only complaint is that there is not a darker brown. I hope they never stop making this palette... already looking forward to vol. 3
I have been wanting this palette for a couple of years, and it was until now that I purchased it. All I can say is that I wish I purchased it sooner because after a week and a half of using it, it has been my GO TO PALETTE! It has the perfect transition shades, and the all matte makes it ideal for everyday/natural looks. The shades also blend beautifully, which is perfect for creating soft looks!
My stylist recommended this brand to me after I complimented her on her eyeshadow. I ordered this product right away and I LOVE it. The colors are really vibrant and go on very smoothly. I like that they are creamy so that you can apply a small amount and blend, or go bold! I love that this is a natural product because I have sensitive skin.
I was a little hesitant to try this product at first because I have never used a micellar water product before, but oh boy am I glad I did! It's so easy to use and easily takes off all of my make up! It leaves my skin feeling clean a hydrated! I love to use this product right before bed. Definitely worth trying out.
Love how sparkly these eye shadows are! They really catch the light and I love the metallic colors. Sometimes I use one shade or I mix two! The application is easy and it goes on pretty pigmented! I definitely think having a primer helps with creasing but overall I found that the shadows stay all day.
Good product, beautifully designed. Big powder and cheek brushes are so soft! I love them :) Eyeshadow brushes are really precise, I use them on a daily basis. Highlighter blush could be softer and more dense, it's the weakest point of this set - but with the rest of the brushes I'm really satisfied. the brushes are great feeling and are so soft its great cause they come in a set so each brush has a different use.
Firstly the packaging is absolutely beautiful. The matte shadows are really good, blendable just like every Tarte palette. The pressed glitters are stunning and so creamy however you do really need to play around with them first to get the hang of them. If you apply with one swipe, often the glitter tends slide and becomes patchy. The best way to apply the pressed glitter would probably be some setting spray on a brush and to tap it on the eyelid/desired eye area gently. The shimmers are absolutely stunning and I definitely recommend this palette for anyone looking for a palette with beautiful shimmers, pigmented soft mattes and pressed glitters.
I love the foundation and the finish. It is medium coverage after 2 pumps. The foundation is lightweight and feels good on my skin. It blended very well with the Foundcealer foundation brush with no patchy coverage. I did not use any primers, setting powder, or setting spray when I wore it. I only moisturized my face. After 8 hours most of the foundation on my nose was gone and on my chin, it started to separate. I have oily skin and normally blot my face throughout the day. When I blotted my face there was minimal transfer. The rest of the foundation was still on my face after 8 hours.
Great pallette for beginners and advanced artists alike! Good combination of matte and shimmery shades. Applies and blends well with little fallout. Some eye shades need setting spray on the brush to maximize pigment intensity on the skin. The blushes blend really well and are very pigmented - a little goes a long way! At first I thought the price was steep for colors that are not very versatile, but there are so many different looks I can create with these shades that it is definitely appropriate for any kind of look you are going for, and at any skill level, too. Eyeliner is very precise and achieves a glossy, high-definition finish, but can also be somewhat pushed out for a smoky liner, too, while still damp. The very tip of the eyeliner felt dries up quickly, so use it while you've got it. Mascara is great - the formula allows for lots of layering without clumping as long as you work fast.
