Tarte Tartelette Tease Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($21) is a new, travel friendly version of the Tarte Tartelette Eyeshadow Palette that contains six brand new shades of eyeshadow. The idea behind the Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette is to give you essentials eyeshadow shades in a smaller travel friendly packaging that makes it easy to take with you.
This is a fun little palette to have on hand at your boyfriend’s house or to take with you on a weekend trip as it has six total shades that can be used to create two looks. Or if you’re feeling inventive you can use shades individually to create a variety of different looks.
Let’s take a look!
The Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette comes housed in a tiny business card sized palette that’s about in inch thick. It’s a sturdy cardboard palette with a generously sized mirror inside and a magnetic closure. It takes absolutely no room in a makeup bag and it travels super friendly-like. It’s a nice palette to have around if you need to do a quickie look or even to just keep tucked away at your boyfriend’s apartment so you do a quick look if you happen to spend the night. It’s also nice to toss in your desk drawer as you can use it to create an evening eye look quickly after work. The shade names are all printed on the palette.
The palette contains six 0.03 oz eyeshadows and is $21. Tarte’s In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette is $45 and holds 12 x 0.053 oz at $45 so the price is just about right in terms of value. It might hold only six shades but you’re getting a good deal of eyeshadow for your buck.
- Whisper (light pink)
- Crush (taupe shimmer)
- Heartbreaker (brown)
- Wink (light mauve)
- First Kiss (mauve shimmer)
- BFF (plum)
If you take the original Tartelette Palette and you take the In Bloom Palette you’ll likely come across similarities in many of the shades in the Tease Palette. I wouldn’t say there are exact dupes here but the color scheme is basically the same as those two palettes.
This palette favors more of the idea of the In Bloom Palette as it isn’t completely matte and does contain a few shimmers where as the original Tartelette Palette was all matte. This contains four matte shades and two shimmers. The shimmer shades had a soft, velvety texture that had a little fall out but nothing too dramatic. Tarte seems to have reformulated their shimmer shades as I didn’t feel these colors were super frosty. The mattes are quite silky and applied very smoothly on my drier eyes without fall out. The darker shades can be a little patchy worn all over so these are best used at the outer v or crease in my opinion.
Looking at the palette you have the first row of shades that will work to create a nude, shimmery look (these are the shades I used to create my look below) and the second row holds shades that will create a plummy taupe look. Of course, the shades can be mixed and matched anyway you choose.
If you love Tarte, you’re bound to adore the Tease Palette.
