Review for: tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette
I promised myself I would start wearing more colorful eye shadow looks if I could find a palette with a formula I loved, and this palette fits the bill perfectly. That said, you can also crease beautiful shimmery yet neutral looks with this palette as well. Formula wise it's similar to the Rainforest of the Sea palettes- almost cream like, smooth and blendable. Like a lot of shimmer shadows, there is some fallout, but less than you'd expect. I've found that they do crease ever so slightly in the first hour, but then they don't budge at all for the rest of the day. They are just as vibrant at the end of the day as they are when you first put them on. Some brushes are better at picking up these shadows than others, I've found dome shaped brushes the best in my experience. The highlighter is lovely as well, white with a peachy duocrome effect. There is some glitter in this as well, but not overdone. Applied lightly it doesn't show skin texture. The one drawback is that you will need another palette for base and transition shades. The one matte color, while lovely for neutral looks, is a little dark for a transition shade for me. That aside, this is a fantastic palette, and I cannot recommend it enough!
