The Tarte Double Duty Beauty Eye & Cheek Palette in Classic Courage is one of two palettes that launched with the Ulta Exclusive Tarte Double Duty Beauty Collection. Each of these makeup palettes contains one full-size blush and five eyeshadows as well as a how to get the look guide.
Let’s tale a look!
Unlike the new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Eye & Cheek Palette isn’t a newly formulated eyeshadow or blush formula. This palette contains the formula we know and love from Tarte. I was a little disappointed; I’d like to see more of that new eyeshadow formula but none the less this palette still contains some excellent product and for those interested it is made in the US.
The compact is a larger square that should travel easily enough as it has a strong magnetic closure. The compact has a gold lame with a large mirror inside and an inspired phrase on the front face plate that reads, “She Dreamed, She Believed, & She Succeeded.”
This palette contains:
- Rise & Shine Eyeshadow (beige)
- Lucky Penny Eyeshadow (rosy copper)
- Trailblazer Eyeshadow (brown)
- Rosy Outlook Eyeshadow (rose gold)
- Smile On Eyeshadow (dark brown)
- Courage Blush (nude pink)
The eyeshadows in the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Eye & Cheek Palette have a soft, silky, slightly powdery consistency that applies easily with excellent pigmentation. The palette contains a mix of satin and matte finish shadows, and I can’t say I had a single issue with any of the shades! All performed very well. The palette’s color scheme reminds me a little bit of the Clinique Strawberry Fudge Palette with shades of pink and contrasting brown as well as a few plummy shades. It’s a nice selection of coordinating shades that go well. I really like the dusky nude pink blush in this palette as well but it is a little powdery in consistency but still very nice shade that blends easily enough.
This palette is lovely formula wise and has a nice roundup of colors that go well together, however, it is a bit repetitive from what we’ve seen from Tarte in the past. The blush quite reminds me of the shade that I have in the Rainforest After Dark Palette and many of the eyeshadows have been done before in other palettes I already own from Tarte. So if you are headed in for a purchase, you might want to head into your stash and make sure you aren’t getting your hands on a palette that contain shades you might already own!
