Tarte Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

3 stars out of 5

Tarte Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette is a new Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette that launched for Spring 2021 which contains 20 pink, plum, and neutral shade selections. If you’re one that gets excited about promo pics this is visibly a treat for the eyes but like most promo pics it’s a bit inaccurate. I think the promo images make it look way more rosy (and a bit more plummy) than it actually is. In reality, it’s another nude, neutral eyeshadow palette because the palette is in fact dominated by a lot of brown. It’s a lot warmer than the promo images let on but does contain a good deal of cooler shades as well!

As you can see this is laid out a little differently compared to the Tarteist PRO REMIX Amazonian Clay Palette and Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Palette. All three palettes contain twenty shades but the Tartelette Juicy Eyeshadow Palette doesn’t have the four circle pan eyeshadows that the PRO and PRO Remix contain. If you’re all about a uninformed design this will delight you as I know those circle pans really bugged some people! When the PRO Palette launched it was $53 (now priced at $49) and contained a total of 0.70 oz of eyeshadow. This is a bit cheaper at $45 and contains a bit more product too as you get 0.80 oz of eyeshadow (0.04 oz per shade). More for less is always better right?

Hi! I’ve Been MIA but I’m Over Here Checking On Your Mental Health Today

What’s the story morning glory?

How you doing over there? Sorry about missing posts the last two days. I have a lot of comments to get through (and dms and emails) and I’m slowly working through them! Well, it’s almost a month into 2021 and I’m not sure a lot has changed but it’s a brand new day and we’re about to embark on a new and important journey today. Take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Today is going to be a good day!

How you holding up? Feeling good?

I’m great thankfully. I have my health which really is everything lately thanks to how unsure COVID has made us feel about something as simple as being and staying healthy! I’m working hard as always! Not a day goes by that I’m not pushing myself to do this and get that done and schedule this and make sure I do this! If I’m not pushing myself I feel like I’m not accomplishing things! The only thing that bugs me is I’m so freaking tired by 10PM. I’m typically a night owl but I swear I hit the sheets by 10 lately and I’m out. I normally wake up at 4:45AM everyday but I am so not a morning person and I really gotta drag myself out of the bed to get my work out in and start work on the blog. But I swear going to bed at 10 def makes things a lot more easier!

I have a lot of reviews upcoming because Spring is here and Spring means new makeup! I know, I know the masks are killing our lipstick and lipgloss game. But you know me! I’m totally rearranging my pantry wearing the a super shiny lipgloss and Mimi’s best eyeshadow look!

I know it’s hard to be upbeat right now. At least here in New York things seem so chaotic. The vaccine thing is not going well and cases are pretty high but like all things in life we have to keep fighting the good fight and keep calm and carry on. I mean, when you’re reading stuff like “COVID was found in ice cream!” it’s a little hard not to panic and lose your sh*t! But remember, good hitchhikers don’t panic!

I swear the first minute they tell me it’s safe I’m headed to the UK and getting the biggest chip butty I can get my hands on. I’ve been going hard on the Peloton I think I deserve a greasy chip sandwich 😀

But most important of all is how are you? I hope you’re keeping busy. I hope you’re safe and healthy. I hope you’re holding up mentally because all this quarantining can be hard on extroverts (and introverts for that matter!). Remember to keep yourself busy and try not to watch too much news.

I’m over here being your cheerleader if you need me! Picking you up when you fall! Making you laugh when you’re frowning!

I know you got this.

Hang in there friends and be the best humans you can be!

Sephora #LipStories Astrology Lipstick for Spring 2021

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Sephora #LipStories Astrology Lipstick are here! 12 brand new shades for Spring 2021 inspired by your astrology sign. Yeah, so, I’m not much of a astrology person please don’t murder me in my sleep but I am however, a MASSIVE fan of the Lipstories Lipstick formula! So cheap, so pigmented, so creamy, totally a win for Sephora. You know how Sephora always has that hit or miss moment with their makeup. Sometimes they have really bad misses! I can think of several items I purchased from their line that were garbage! Other times they do a really big miss! I swear I wish they’d bring that damn BB Compact back it was amazing! That’s the thing about Sephora, I hate getting too attached to their releases as they seem to disappear seasonally! Lipstories however have been around a while now and they seem to do a lot of different LE and seasonal shades.

These are available in matte, metallic, and satin finishes. Do you think your astrology sign will approve of the finish? Ha…!

Metallics:

  • Aquarius (nude with gold and pink pearl)
  • Libra (rosy brown with gold & copper pearl)
  • Sagittarius (metallic berry)

Satins:

  • Pisces (warm pink coral)
  • Taurus (plummy nude brown)
  • Gemini (coral)
  • Cancer (fuchsia)
  • Virgo (muted coral nude)

Mattes:

  • Aries (matte red orange)
  • Leo (raspberry)
  • Scorpio (oxblood)
  • Capricorn (warm dark brown)

Based off these shades and finishes do they match your astrology sign? Mine? Naaa! Matte and a deep blood red? I prob would have gone with Libra if it wasn’t a metallic.

How about you?
