Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Gloss and Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Palette

For Spring 2011, Tarina Tarantino introduces a new gloss and a new eye palette. I got a little ickle burned with the Holiday Palette so I might practice a little caution if and when I indulge in the new palette. I will say it looks lovely.

Shall we take a peek?

Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Gloss $14
A hydrating gloss that adds color and sparkle to your lips.

Shades Available:

  • Kosmonaut (plum wine with iridescent shimmer)
  • Nouveau Nude (bronzed peach with iridescent shimmer)
  • Opaline (translucent with iridescent shimmer)
  • Paiette (sheer light pink with iridescent shimmer)
  • Parade (hot pink with pink and iridescent shimmer)
  • Tulip (vivid fuchsia with iridescent shimmer)

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Palette $38
8 shades of Tarina’s eyeshadows in a gorgeous little palette!

Shades Included:

  • Hollyhock (pearlized brown)
  • Trumpette (golden apricot)
  • Night Hopper (pearlized taupe)
  • Taurella (creamy vanilla)
  • Secret Pond (mossy green)
  • Deep Dahlia (deep purple)
  • Poppycock (shimmery bright purple)
  • Tiny Pansie (pearlized dusty rose)

A little investigative work yielded the fact that the shades appear to be new ones as none of these colors in the palette are available as single eyeshadows so that could in fact be the breaking point for fans of the brand as exclusive shades are always welcome eh?

Although I will say it does look a tad uneventful in the promo image but you never know it could turn out special.

Whatcha think?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m helpless in the face of a girly eyshadow palette…. *sigh* So much for my “cutting back on makeup purchases”! LOL! 😀

  • Telle

    Ohhh! The glosses are hawt!! And hopefully the price difference b/w US and Canada isn’t too great bc the price for the glosses is decent too!

    Thanks Muse!! 😀

  • Gloria

    I don’t know… The case looks blah. I really want Tarina to make extraordinarily gorgeous jewelry-like cases for her palettes! Not plastic-y looking ones with print on it.

    • the Muse

      agreed gloria. she’s such a vibrant personality I want her makeup to match that!

  • Donna

    It is reminiscent of the holiday palette, since it really doesn’t fit TT’s image again. I was watching old America’s Next Top Model’s episodes and she was on one of them, she was wearing a neon wig for heaven’s sake! Pink or turquoise, I can’t remember, but it was bright and bold! So why the safe colors in her palettes? I mean, sure throw a few safe colors in there, but fans would also expect a few bright and bold fun colors, no? Maybe I just don’t know TT that well, I didn’t really pay attention to her makeup. Maybe she goes nuts with crazy accessories and balances that with ordinary makeup colors?

    • the Muse

      hi donna yup I wrote about this a while ago. I wouldn’t pay $39 either tbh 😛

  • Ruthless

    Swatched this at Sephora, it’s totally MEH and not worth the money IMO

    needed to let you know!! not only are the shadows exclusive to the palette, but they are also a preview of tt’s new formula. don’t be fooled if your local sephora ditches the current colors for brand-spanking new ones. if the colors in the palette are too blah for you, stay tuned!! also, they really do pop if you use them wet. pure gorgeousness.
