Tarte x Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette ($39) launched a few short weeks ago and was created in collaboration with youTuber Adelaine Morin. Yes, I’m old and had to Google who she was because I was all:
Ok, so, here’s the thing. I’m either not watching enough youTube, I’m too old, I may live under a rock, or Tarte selects youTubers no one ever heard of to do collaborations with. I’ll feel a lot better if someone steps in here and says they don’t know who Adelaine is either. Had the same issue when they did the Aspyn Ovard Eye & Cheek Palette but good news at LEAST I knew who the Grav3yard Girl was! Phew! See? Pop culture hasn’t completely eluded me!
Well, Adelaine I make major apologies for not knowing who you are but girl, props on the awesome palette! I like it! A lot! I didn’t expect to considering my track with Tarte hasn’t been good lately but you do a good job creating this with them!
As we had into Summer juicy, fresh, and fun shades might be your order of business! If that’s the case you’ll get on rather famously with the Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette. This lemonade inspired palette has some truly fun, funky shades to create some cool eye looks for the warmer weather ahead.
The palette isn’t as pretty as Aspyn’s palette which had a gorgeous floral design and arrived in a heavier compact. For Adelaine’s release they went with a sturdy cardboard palette that has bright lemons decorating the front. I am currently obsessed with lemons! They have taken over my house, my wardrobe, and my makeup collection. So, I was thrilled with how cute this packaging is! Inside you’ll find a generously sized mirror along with nine eyeshadows, one blush, and a highlighter all of which are made in the USA. The eyeshadows are 0.029 oz each and the highlighter and blush are 0.124 oz. The palette has a vanilla cocoa scent and each of the shade names are printed below them the wells.
From the design to the formula this palette pretty much gets five stars all around from me. It’s a fabulous palette that surprised me. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did and I have to admit I didn’t expect it to be formulated so well because let’s me honest here, Tarte has been pretty hit or miss lately.
You get six matte shades and three velvety shimmer shades all the eyeshadows have a super soft, buttery texture with intense pigment. They apply, blend, and wear like a dream! I was a massive fan of the blush as well which is a pretty medium rosy pink. The only item I wasn’t into was the highlighter! It was bit too frosty for me. But everything else was incredible. The blush surprised me as I expected something dry and stiff but it’s super silky and blended beautifully! This is how I remember Tarte’s formula! This is what I loved about their formula!
The shades are very playful and very fun and they pair up beautifully together. From bold lemons to sizzling oranges this palette has plenty of fun, funky shades for Summer! Sure, it’s not the most unique shade range around but I really don’t care because everything pairs up beautifully together here making it a fun palette to travel with this Summer.
I went into my Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette purchase expecting to not like it and was very, very pleasantly surprised to come out of the experience loving it.
I’m placing a Muse Approval on this one.
Do get it!
It doesn’t disappoint.

But aside from that I thought all the shades were super pigmented, easy to blend with a buttery texture and little to no fall out. It’s the first Tarte palette in a long time that I loved!
