Tarteist Pro Glow to Go

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go Highlight & Contour Palette ($23.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes two highlighters and one contour powder. It’s a compact trio housed in a slim, black cardboard palette that had a velvety feel on the outside (like NARS’ packaging in a way). I think it will work for someone who likes warmer, more intense highlighters and has use for the tone and depth of contour powder. The problem with something like this is that it’s just not going to work for all skin tones and undertones (I always want brands to at least put out a cool and warm version, if not a light/medium/dark).

The Tarteist Pro To Go Highlight & Contour Palette delivers the perfect glow with three pigments designed to enhance all skin tones. Each carefully selected, universally flattering hue has a rich undertone that mimics real shadow and light reflection on the face for natural-looking, chiseled definition. The matte contour powder sculpts a gorgeous look, while two intense highlighting powders deliver buildable shimmer for a strobing effect. Each fade-free shade can be layered or worn alone for a radiant, long-wear finish.

Bestie

Tarte Bestie Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, rosy pink with strong, warm brown udnertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on smoothly and evenly, though it looked a little streaky initially–but it seemed to self-level and dry down to a streak-free finish.

The Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint (whew! that’s a mouthful) is supposed to have full coverage, matte finish, be kiss-proof, and lasts “all day.” Most of their claims are accurate; it had good pigmentation, was matte, and didn’t transfer, though it only wore for five and a half hours, so it’s not the most long-wearing lipsticks I’ve come across (particularly when it comes to liquid lipstick formulas). It was lightly drying, and it had a softer, more natural feel on the lips that wasn’t as prone to cracking or weighing lips down.

Tarte Tarteist PRO Palette

Tarte Tarteist PRO Palette
Tarte Tarteist PRO Palette

Tarte Tarteist PRO Palette ($53.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes 20 eyeshadows with 16 shades that are matte and 4 that are shimmery. The matte eyeshadows felt smoother and a little denser with less powderiness/dustiness compared to the Tartelette palettes, but they are still rather soft and have slight dustiness overall. The shimmery eyeshadows were soft, smooth, and denser, but they did not seel as velvety or as dense compared to the Metallics Shadow range (and the ingredient lists seemed different). I think the palette is pretty good, particularly if you normally use an eyeshadow primer, as the mattes all really benefit from it in minor ways that make them much easier to use and longer-wearing.
