Hello friends! I've been so busy with school lately, I haven't had much time to blog!
So a little over a month ago, I turned 21. And I had a ton of fun with my family and close friends! One of the gifts I was (more-recently) given was the Tarteist Pro palette by my older sister. So I wanted to document my first time using it. By the time I'm writing this post, I've dabbled with this palette even more (enough to review it more credibly than just after one use).
So let's start with the first impression of the packaging.
I love the matte finish and details of gold on the outside of the palette. On the inside, the colors are absolutely gorgeous. I'm in love with the clever layout--how the shimmers are the circle pans and all the matte shadows are in the square pans.
Something I like to do in these review posts is photograph swatches row-by-row and give the shadow name as well as describing what kind of consistency the shadow is. Let's start with the top row, from left to right...
First row (from left to right) - classic (matte) - innocent (matte) - whimsy (matte) - smoked (matte) - ethereal (shimmer)
Second row (from left to right) - vintage (matte) - fierce (matte) - no filter (matte) - vamp (matte) - glam (shimmer)
Third row (from left to right) - chic (matte) - profesh (matte) - mod (matte) - drama (matte) - minx (shimmer)
Fourth row (from left to right) - indie (matte) - bold (matte) - edgy (matte) - punk (matte) - trendy (shimmer)
After using this product, the final verdict is that I'm in love with these pigments. The color is super opaque. However, the matte shadows are a bit challenging to blend, so you definitely need to build them up.
Also, bonus debut with the makeup look below: my purple hair!
