Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette ($38.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a cooler-toned eyeshadow palette with one blush. The palette has some misses and a few nicer shades, but if you already have a few of Tarte’s palettes, you may want to check your stash–there were a lot of Tarte eyeshadows that I ended up pulling as similar shades across this palette. The mattes were on the powdery side, while the more frosted shades were more pigmented and applied better to bare skin.

As a note, the back of the packaging lists 1.91 oz. for the blush with a 5.4g weight, but when you covert 5.4 grams into oz., you get 0.19 oz. (1.91 oz. is a massive amount of product in makeup, whereas 0.19 oz. is more in line with the size of it in the palette and what you’d expect to see with the average blush).

Full Moon is a light beige with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a very silky feel to it, but it was prone to sheering out as it also became somewhat powdery. It had semi-opaque coverage and lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Blanc Type (P, $16.00) is warmer. Bobbi Brown Bone (P, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Vanilla (P, $16.00) is warmer.

Charged Up is a subdued, medium-dark taupe brown with a frosted finish and warm undertones. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t powdery or dry. On me, it started to fade after eight hours of wear. MAC Superwatt (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. Clarins The Essentials #5 (LE, ) is warmer. Urban Decay Juju (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter.

See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dark Drive is a blackened brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-sheer with a drier texture that kicked up excess in the pan and ended up being difficult to blend on the eye, as the eyeshadow applied unevenly. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. Too Faced Triple Fudge (P, $16.00) is warmer. Tarte Dream in Chocolate (LE, ) is darker. Kat Von D Shadow Box (P, ) is lighter.

See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stone Unturned is a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It was very powdery, which resulted in sheer coverage that didn’t apply well to bare skin. It was noticeably faded after five and a half hours on me. Dior Mirage (761) (P, $30.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Fix (P, $21.00) is darker.

See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Up Too Slate is a medium-dark, purple-taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was easy to work with. The texture felt a little denser compared to the rest of the palette. The eyeshadow started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Hypnotizing (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #1 (P, ) is more shimmery. MAC Dangerous Cuvee (P, $18.50) is cooler. Ardency Inn Disco (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker.

Viseart Vendome (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Misty Mauve is a softened, medium-dark purple-taupe with a matte finish and cooler undertones. It was a smidgen on the powdery side, but it was denser and had a much smoother feel, which helped the color payoff. The color went on with mostly opaque coverage and started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Tarte I Think I Cannes (LE, ) is darker. Tarte Natural Beauty (LE, ) is lighter, warmer. Makeup Geek Unexpected (P, $5.99) is lighter. Tarte Best Friend (LE, ) is darker. Colour Pop Bill (P, $5.00) is lighter. Buxom Spoiled Sexy (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer.

See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Power Plum is a deepened, eggplant purple with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was powdery and dusty in the pan, which made it harder to blend on the lid without it turning into a patchy/uneven mess. The color wore well for seven hours on me. Make Up For Ever #160 (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter. bareMinerals Nightcap (P, ) is lighter, brighter. Tarte My Own Cotes de Rhone (LE, ) is .

Lunar Eclipse is a medium-dark black with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-opaque with a firmer, drier consistency that was difficult to blend on the skin. It lasted for just over six hours before fading. Anastasia LBD (LE, $12.00) is warmer. Dior Pied de Poule #3 (P, ) is lighter. Sephora Collection Black Lace (P, $13.00) is darker. NARS Shade VI (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker. Giorgio Armani #01 (P, $32.00) is darker. MAC Blackboard (LE, $16.00) is less pigmented, lower quality. Divergent Dauntless Ink (LE, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Crystal Spark is a brightened, light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had a denser texture, but it was prone to “thickening” on the lid, so it would look uneven or emphasize the texture of the lid itself. It had good pigmentation and was fairly blendable, while the color lasted for seven and a half hours. Tarina Tarantino Delightful #4 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Rich Glance (LE, $21.00) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Delightful #4 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker.

Unearthed is a rosy copper with a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage that was fairly buildable with a lightly powdery texture that was at least finely-milled.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about WATERPROOF EYELINERS!

my answer: The only thing I have to complain about (and it’s not really a complaint) is that they are harder to remove, so you have to go straight to your best makeup remover. Otherwise, all raves!

MAC Dozen Carnations Lipstick
MAC Dozen Carnations Lipstick

MAC Sweet Sakura Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “true red with soft gold pearl.” It’s a brightened, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and fine gold pearl. It leans warm to me, but it may appear more neutral on those with cooler or more neutral undertones. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied smoothly on the lips, though it takes a few seconds for the formula to really glide on as it starts off too firm. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Guerlain Gala (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, glossier. Too Faced Red Stiletto (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Must Be Red (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Night to Remember (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer, glossier. Estee Lauder Envious (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer, glossier. Revlon 5th Ave. Red (LE, $7.99) is cooler. MAC True Love’s Kiss (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer. MAC Head in the Clouds (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Guerlain Red Strass (327) (P, $37.00) is brighter. Guerlain Red Hot (328) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, more muted, cooler. MAC Oblivion (LE, $16.00) is brighter. MAC Audacious (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, brighter. MAC Dozen Carnations (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Dozen Carnations Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense warm tomato red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and fine gold pearl. It was semi-opaque with a firmer, almost tacky, consistency that really was better held to the lips for a few seconds to warm it up or else it dragged. It lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Guerlain Red Strass (327) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, cooler. MAC Excite (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC 5 Alarm (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Sweet Sakura (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler. Chanel Arthur (440) (P, $36.00) is lighter. MAC Cockney (P, $16.00) is darker. Guerlain Gilda (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Chanel Coromandel (P, $34.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Pretty Boy Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense pink coral.” It’s a muted, medium-dark coral-pink with warm undertones and pink and silver pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and lasted for four hours on me, but it was a hair drying. The consistency was firmer and needs time to soften from the heat of the lips before it really glides on easily. Dior Sunset (660) (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Chanel Marie (430) (P, $36.00) is cooler. Chanel Legende (428) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler. Estee Lauder Blossom Bright (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is warmer. Givenchy Rose Dentelle (203) (P, $36.00) is brighter. Too Faced Shimmering Spice Spice Baby (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, darker. Chanel Pygmalion (LE, $35.00) is less shimmery. Revlon Cruise Collection (P, $9.99) is darker. Guerlain Pamplelune (P, $35.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: MAC Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) has a variety of finishes, which results in color coverage, finish, comfort, wear, and texture to vary from finish to finish. Lustres tend to be sheer to semi-sheer with a thin, slippery consistency and wear one to three hours; they are lightly to moderately drying on me, despite their slip. Cremesheens typically have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, wear an average of four hours, are sometimes drying and sometimes not drying, and have a light shine to their finish. Amplifieds have a light sheen, opaque coverage, slightly thicker consistency but is less “heavy” in look compared to satins; they are typically not drying but not hydrating and can wear four to six hours. Satins have less sheen compared to Amplifieds but have similar coverage and wear. Mattes, particularly newer iterations of the finish, have a velvety, silicone-like consistency that makes them easier to apply without drag, and they typically have opaque coverage and wear four to six hours, but they can be drying. Retro Mattes are ultra-matte with a very flat, nearly no-sheen finish, and they are often stiffer in the tube but thinner in consistency compared to satins or mattes; they are often drying but wear four to eight hours. All MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented with no discernible taste.

Laura Geller Guava Baked Gelato Swirl Blush
Laura Geller Guava Baked Gelato Swirl Blush

Laura Geller Guava Baked Gelato Swirl Blush ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark pink-coral with a subtle, golden sheen. Charlotte Tilbury Las Salinas (P, $45.00) is more shimmery, lighter. NARS Panic (Right) (P, ) is warmer. MAC Secret Admirer (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Surratt Beauty Ponceau (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter. IT Cosmetics Pretty in Peony (P, $24.00) is warmer. NARS Soulshine #1 (LE, $30.00) is warmer. NARS Realm of the Senses #1 (LE, $30.00) is warmer. NARS Realm of the Senses (Together) (LE, $30.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Simmer (LE, $27.00) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The formula is described as having vivid and “translucent, vibrant color” with a “flirty, natural-looking flush” that goes on “like a powder but feels like a cream.” They have a very similar texture as the Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminators I reviewed earlier this year, which I totally fell in love with. The texture has a smooth, denser feel to it that has good color payoff that’s incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. The pigmentation varies from shade to shade, but they are generally quite pigmented. Guava was intensely pigmented with a soft, blendable consistency that was dense and almost cream-like but applied and blended exactly as a powder blush would. I felt like it almost melted into the skin and gave a more stained-like appearance, but it was very even (and stains can be tricky to work with for that reason, at least for me!). What’s nice about the formula is you can use less and blend out for a tint of color or apply normally and get a bold cheek look. The blush has a luminous sheen that gives it a dewy look without emphasizing pores. It wore well for almost nine hours on me before fading slightly.

Temptalia Asks You


What is your current eye brow routine? Share!

Thanks to Jade for today’s questions! Do you have a question idea? Submit yours here.
