Tarte Cosmetics launched a new eyeshadow palette just in time for the holidays on Friday, October 14, 2016. The palette includes 16 matte eyeshadows and 4 duo-chrome eyeshadows that can take you from a fresh-faced daytime look to night-time glam with the flick of a wrist. The company chose to introduce the new palette by flying several makeup artists and YouTube phenoms out to Bora Bora to promote it throughout their various social media accounts. The product retails for $53 U.S. and discounts are inapplicable. However, they do offer free shipping after $40 U.S. and it includes a free sample while supplies last.
While the price of the palette may seem high at first, each eyeshadow comes out to $2.65 a piece when you divide the retail price by the amount of eyeshadows. A majority of the eyeshadows are matte, meaning they have no sheen, so I would not purchase this palette if you prefer eyeshadows with a hint of shimmer. Tarte is a cruelty-free cosmetic company and their products are always paraben, gluten, and mineral oil free — perfect for animal lovers and those who may have sensitive skin.
I have linked the palette’s webpage here if you are interested in getting a closer look at the colors. Tarte has also included some photographs of eyeshadow looks that you can gain inspiration from if you have purchased the palette or have similar shades.
