You know just how much I love my Tartelette palette from Tarte, I use it almost daily. You can imagine just how excited I was when I found out that that they’re releasing another version of this Amazonian Clay Palette!
Tarte Tartelette 2 In Bloom Amazonian Clay Palette comes in pretty much identical packaging as the original Tartelette palette: sturdy with a big mirror. There are 12 brand new eyeshadows included in this palette; 9 mattes and 3 gorgeous lusters: Charmer– Off white matte; Jetsetter– warm, taupe matte; Rocker– shimmering taupe; Smokeshow- black brown matte; Flower Child– peachy nude matte; Smarty pants– tan matte; Firecraker– brozne copper; Activist– dark brown matte; Funny girl– shimmering champagne; Sweetheart– peach matte; Rebel– chestnut brown matte; Leader– aubergine matte.
Formula-wise these are just as amazing as the Tartelette palette; the mattes feel extremely buttery and the lusters are incredibly smooth as well. They blend beautifully and are pretty long-lasting. I absolutely love every single shadow included in this palette, the colors are great for an everyday use and they are very easy to work with.
I was afraid that there would be some fallout wight the luster shades, but they are just as smooth and creamy as the mattes. One thing that I think is a little different about this palette is that it’s scented. I don’t know if it’s just me, but as soon as I opened it, I was reminded of the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette, I think that the smell is very similar. I thought this was a little strange, because I didn’t see this mentioned in the description of this palette. Looking at the list of ingredients, it looks like these contain a little vanilla extract, which is probably responsible for that delicate, sweet scent.
Tarte Tartelette 2 In Bloom Swatches
I think that I like this palette even better than the original Tartelette. I think that the colors in Tartelette 2 in Bloom are even more universally flattering and they work beautifully with my skin tone. I also love that there are three luster shades included in this as well, I think that it’s a great option for someone like me who loves their mattes but still likes a little sparkle here and there.
The packaging is such as gorgeous as the product itself!
