I’m loving the Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye And Cheek Palette ($38) that released along with the Summer 2013 collection. If you love Tarte I’d highly suggest you snag it as it’s only available for a limited time.
Take a peek!
This travel friendly palette is as round as a CD and contains an array of Tarte’s goodies. Tarte also includes two face charts for creating Summer looks easily with a few simple steps.
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
- Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Captivating
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow in Hammock, Bikini, Barefoot, Parasol, Sun Deck, and Poolside
Honestly, if you’re indulging, indulge for the gorgeous shade of Captivating blush alone! This is a subtle shade of orange-y coral in the pan but applies with a really pretty pop of coral on cheeks making it a perfect Summer loving shade!
My look I created below is super subtle but Tarte includes not only bronze-y gold shades flattering for Summer but also a lovely shade of aqua for lids as well to spice things up if you don’t want subtle! As far as I’m concerned aqua, gold, and bronze are always excellent picks for a Summer fun eye look.
The texture of the shadows are actually a little different from Tarte’s typical offerings. These are as silky and have more of a creamy, velvety texture and are a bit powdery. They apply easily but since they tend to kick up a bit of dust they also create a little fall out which is easy enough to clean up thanks to the lack of shimmer. The colors are so soft and buttery and wear very nicely without fading or creasing throughout the day! They apply like a dream and I find them very easy to blend together. Although just a warning, some of the light shades run a tad frosty but thankfully the frost blends out to a smoother finish so they aren’t left looking too heavy or shimmery on my lid.
Parasol, Barefoot, Bikini
Poolside, Hammock, Sundeck
Captivating Blush, Park Ave Princess Bronzer, Champagne Highlighter
They also happen to be user friendly in terms of Summer shades! Nothing too loud here…it’s all about a soft bronze-y eye look with gold accents and perhaps if you’re feeling risque a little aqua to spice things up.
I think the palette is a bronze girl lover’s dream as you have all the perfect accents here to flatter glowing Summer skin. The real star of the show for me was the gorgeous and very captivating (great name) shade of coral blush!
It’s the perfect Summer palette for toting on Holiday with you!

Do love this one.
