Sparkler

Tarte Sparkler Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a muted, medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a glittery, moderately metallic finish. There also seemed to be a rosy tint to it which seemed to become more pronounced as I blended and diffused to the product out (this is a shade that I’d have expected to look quite warm on me, but it more subdued).

The formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear that has a “buildable glow.” I’ve liked a lot of the highlighters Tarte has been releasing recently, but the texture of this one was chunkier and rougher than others; it was not necessarily gritty, but it was much more of a glitter-to-metallic finish, which resulted in less even distribution of product onto the brush and on the face. The glittery bits tended to separate from the more metallic base, and it seemed to have less color to its base as I blended out the product, even though it was rather pigmented! When I used a denser buffer brush at the end, it helped a lot to give it a smoother sheen that did not emphasize my pores or skin’s natural texture. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours before starting to separate on me.

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).

Tarte Tarteist Pro to Go Eye Palette for Spring 2017

Two new Pro to Go Palettes for Spring 2017.

Highlight/Contour Palette available now, TBA for Eye Palette

Editor’s Note: I have a hunch that the eye palette is launching exclusively at Sephora 11/28 for early access, as these, along with several other products that are exclusively for Cyber Monday, just went “live” this morning.

Tarteist Pro to Go Highlight & Contour Palette, $23.00 (Permanent, Sephora Exclusive)

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.
