This is the new holiday 2015 palette for Tarte Cosmetics exclusively sold at Sephora. It comes complete with 30 Amazonian Clay eyeshadows, a blush, bronzer, highlighter, a deluxe-sized Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, and a dual-ended brush.
The Case: The case is a pretty weighted gold and black case with pink detailing on the inside. There is a tribal sequined design on the front and from what I’ve seen from other peoples’palettes, each design on the front is a little different. It’s definitely a glam and glitzy case, and although it’s a bit thick, it’s not as big as it looks in pics.
The Takeaway Palette: This is a thin yellow and gold palette to take on the go. Behind it is a large mirror built into the case. This palette has a matte cool-toned bronzer in ‘Social Butterfly’, a cool muted pink blush in ‘Amazed’, an icy pink-white highlighter in ‘Pink Champaigne’, and 6 rosy and purple toned eyeshadows all in the Amazonian clay formula.
The 24-shadow palette: This is a beautiful neutral range of matte/metallic/shimmer shadows. There are a couple of warm toned shades, but I feel this is mostly a cool-toned palette. They all have cute Christmas-y names and there are so many possible looks that can be done! The shadows are very buttery, smooth, and blend on the eyelid very well.
