My Favourite Eyeshadow Palette

One thing that bugs me a lot when it comes to eyeshadow palettes is that no matter how beautiful it might be, there is always this one shade in it that I will never use. It might be too bright, too glittery, or just not pigmented enough. Some little detail is always off. So, if you look at any of my palettes, you will see about two thirds of it having been well loved, and the rest not even touched once. Sometimes, when I think about it, that makes me feel like I am wasting a lot of money, product, etc. Not too long ago, however, I bought yet another eyeshadow palette and I found myself liking and also using every single shade in it. This is a first.

This gorgeous palette, from tarte’s Amazonian Clay range, has twelve beautiful shades in it. They are divided into three rows and four columns, to indicate easy ways to use the palette. Choose all of the colour of one of the rows for your look and you are good to go. You don’t have to use this system, though; all twelve of them work perfectly together.

My favourite ones are: funny girl (bottom left), which I love to use as a shimmery highlight in my inner corner; smarty pants (middle row, second one from the left), which is a perfect, casual, all over the lid shade; firecracker (middle row, second one from the right), which adds a little bit of extra sparkle to your typical autumn night out makeup look; and leader (bottom right), which I love as a crease colour.

All of the shades have a really nice, buttery consistency and are extremely pigmented. In addition to that, they blend better than most of the eyeshadows I have ever used. They also last a really long time in the lid without creasing or smudging.I love this palette, because even though it has mostly nude shades in it, it is extremely versatile. Whenever I have very little time to do my makeup, I use this palette, because I can create a simple and beautiful look without thinking about it too much. Whenever I go out in the evenings and have a lot of time to do my makeup, this palette helps me create a really special and fancy look. I definitely need to check out more of tarte’s products.
