The Tartelette palette is designed with the every woman in mind. The shades are named to celebrate and empower unique women such as “super mom” “natural beauty” and “best friend”

The shadows are lovely and smooth and swatch beautifully on the fingers, but tend to sheer out on the skin. The dark and light shades are the best in this palette while some of the mid tones are a little less pigmented.

All shades are able to be built up to create a deeper look or used lightly for a sheer neutral wash of colour.

The packaging on this is gorgeous with its gold interior, pretty purple exterior and large mirror. Its sleek and portable and perfect to take away with you when travelling.

The Tartelette palette is perfect for those with more mature skin or for ladies who are a little scared of shimmer and glitter (which can look ageing) The shades can be used together for an all matte look or combined with a highlighting shade (try using your fave highlighter or illuminator to add a little shine.

Here are the shadows which as mentioned are placed in rows which contain liner, lid, and crease shadows all meant to compliment each other.

The first row contains four shades perfect to give a natural, neutral brown eye look. Free Spirit is your basic cream which is great for laying down all over the lid as a base to help with blending. Force of Nature is a gorgeous mid toned shade perfect for a transition shade. Dreamer and Multitasker are deeper browns perfect for popping in the crease and outer v to create a little more drama.

Natural Beauty is a pretty mauve with grey undertones, Best friend is a little deeper and is more of an orchid purple and is a perfect compliment to natural beauty. Lastly Bombshell is a great dark purple perfect for smoking up  a look

I have a post on this palette as well! Twinnies! I have it strange that the shades swatch so poorly on the arm but are actually quite pigmented on the lid. I suppose matte shades have a tendency to do this. I haven't found myself reaching for this palette a lot just because I always tend to go for shimmer shadows but it is quite beautiful and well presented!

    Great minds think alike!

    I have been using it on and off but usually add a bit of shimmer from another palette

I really like my Tartlette palette too but I do agree that some shades end to sheer out quite a bit when blended. It still makes a great everyday palette though and I can't wait for the Tartlette In Bloom palette to finally come out here :)
