Do yourself a flavor and grab a Tarte Call Of The Wild Amazonian Clay Shadow Collector’s Palette ($36) your next trip to Sephora. This eight pan eyeshadow palette contains some of the nicest nudes and naturals I’ve tried in a while. Heck I’ve been using it daily for a week straight with no end in sight…that’s saying something considering I rarely stick to using a single color palette everyday!
Take a peek!
Embracing a similiar shadow format they used in their Jewelry Box Palette from 2011, this palette contains essentials for creating three main looks or mix and match shades to create an endless array of looks.
Sometimes when I travel I find I just want to take EVERYTHING I own with me from my makeup collection but when you have an easy to travel palette like this, with great essentials, it really lightens the load.
The collection features creamy true to color mattes that apply and blend out like butter and a few subtle shimmery shades which work equally as well. I find the texture of the shades super silky, finely milled, and oh so easy to apply and blend out. I like how sheer and soft Tarte’s shadow formula is. It always manages to apply fuss free sans any fall out, blends out easily, and doesn’t go muddy plus wears very well throughout the day. I think if you’re a fan of Urban Decay or MAC you might not see the appeal of these shadows as they aren’t crazy pigmented however, they are an ideal pick for someone who wants a more subtly pigmented shadow formula especially if you have fine lines or aging eyes!
You get shades:
The shades are broken down into a trio of colors which allows you to contrast and define easily with matching shades (no headaches mixing and matching shades, the guess work is taken out of it thanks to the color pairings that Tarte has already set up for you).
I used the left hand side of the palette to create my look. This pairing is made up of a golden brown, a rich chocolatey brown, and a creamy beige. It’s simply a matter of adding a shade to your lid, crease, and highlight! Done! So simple to apply yet so stunning.
Even the navy blue pairing was completely easy to use and very flattering. Typically shades like this emphasize my dark circles but I had no problems sporting these colors.
Overall, Tarte’s Call Of The Wild Palette is a brilliant little creation that’s easy to use. It’s great for makeup amateurs as well as those with expert eyeshadow skill. The colors are beautiful, the shadow formula easy to work, what more could a girl want?
