New Darker Tarte Contour Palette on the Way

Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette5

The Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette is on the way in a new darker palette of shades. I think the original that launched for Spring 2016 did limit who could use it as the shades wouldn’t work for everyone so, if you have a darker skin tone you might just a bit excited about the introduction of this new palette which includes 3 darker contouring shades, 2 highlighters, and a new, brighter blush shade.

No details on the exact launch date but I imagine Fall 2016 might just be the order of business for this one!

I’ll keep you posted!


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.

    The release is a collab with Youtuber makeupshayla. I really wanted the original but it’s too light, so I’m excited to check this out! I don’t even contour anymore because I’m so bad at it hahaha

      w00t! WOC collaboration! 🙂 I didn’t know that! I heard about the palette via a few retweets on my time line but didn’t realize it was a collab! awesome!!!!

    Hey isabella. I know its not quite relevant to the post above but was plannning on buying a tarte tarteist amazonian clay blush palette on ebay since it ain’t available on their official website anymore. Well i saw it on ebay and was wondering if it was real or more likely a fake? And since you have done a blog on the above mentioned palette as well, i thought perhaps you would have a good eye for fakes and would be able to tell them apart. I am attaching the links below for you to look at…Your opinion is greatly appreciated. Thanks xx

      Hi Faiza, sorry I’m sure. It’s a little hard to tell from photos if something is fake.

  • Faiza

    Is there any other place I could buy it from?! (Since it ain’t available in UK) Or shall i just go for one of these on ebay?! What do you suggest ? 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      Can you purchase it from QVC or Ulta and use a service like Borderlinx to ship it to you?

  • Faiza

    its probably not gonna be cost effective. But lets see if i could get around to it.. Thanks xx

    • Isabella Muse

      Sorry Faiza. I’m not sure where else to get it outside of Ebay and can’t really confirm if it is or isn’t real 🙁

  • Faiza

    Please don’t embarrass me now..lol there’s nothing to be sorry about xx its just that i wanted it so bad and thought of getting a second opinion on it..didn’t know they had a knock off made for one of these palettes as well 🙁 wouldn’t buy it off ebay now. Thanks for the help..really xx

    • Isabella Muse

      Honestly, I’ve never seen Tarte knock offs personally but you can never tell with Ebay! I still bad, totally can relate to the feeling of wanting makeup/beauty item that proves difficult to find. Only thing I can say is go the ebay route and if anything paypal always offers an excellent money back guarantee! Good luck my dear!

  • Faiza

    Well , that i could do..but would i be able to tell if it aint a genuine? Thank you so much. I really appreciate the advice xx

    • Isabella Muse

      Sorry! :-/ There are telltale signs, a few blogs have done some good posts about fakes that might be helpful!?
