Tarte Pin-up, Shake Down, Grind Metallics Shadows

Tarte Metallics Shadow ($14.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula (boo!hiss!) that is available in 11 shades. Each eyeshadow comes in an oversized plastic compact with a clear lid, but the eyeshadow pan is actually removable; the only downside is that the pan itself isn’t labeled, so if you move yours into a freestyle palette system, I would make sure to add labels to the bottoms! The formula is soft, smooth, slightly dense, and very pigmented; a little went a long way, but it wasn’t so soft that it turned powdery or had a lot of fall out to contend with, though there was a little excess kicked up in the pan. They were very blendable and easy to apply to bare skin, and I didn’t notice a difference in payoff or texture when applied over primer or over bare skin. The formula wore between seven and eight hours for me (no primer). I was pleasantly surprised by the consistency and pigmentation of the new formula; I’m disappointed it’s limited edition, and it would been even better if there were more unique shades released as well. I am also a huge fan of them being easy to pop out!

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains three cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The formula on some of the more matte shades was very, very silky and soft, but they kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and often sheered out when blended–more so than some of Tarte’s past palettes. I noticed that some of the darker shades seemed to become more muted just a few minutes after applying, so it felt like I had to really pat and pack on some shades to get definition and depth out of them. I think the colors complement each other well, and I liked that there were some plummy hues thrown in with warmer, more orange-toned shades. I also felt like the cheek colors actually worked with the palette and its different color combinations, so the scheme is very cohesive. The palette is slated to be fully released on June 6th!

Tarte Double Tap, Goals, Snap Tarteist Glossy Lip Paints

Tarte Double Tap Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool mauve.” It’s a muted, medium-dark warm rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, spreadable texture that was very comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating. The only downside was some of the color gathered in lip lines, though I didn’t find it too noticeable from a normal viewing distance. MAC Anything But Demure (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Tarte Snap (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC It's a Strike (LE, $20.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Deelight (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
