I discovered Tarina Tarantino thanks to this site. I’d never really noticed her products before but then I read Christine’s review and “look” with this palette and had to have it. This is, quite simply, one of the most perfect eye shadow 5 pan palettes ever. It is so flattering. The colours have been well-chosen and paired so well. In reality, you could take a week long trip (business or vacation) and take only this eye shadow palette and have everything you need. I was a bit leery of the orange shadow but even that shade is flattering and wearable for me. My only regret is that I didn’t get some of the other palettes before they were discontinued at Sephora. I paid full price for this one and it was worth every cent, but it would have been nice to have got one or 2 others when they were discounted.
Tarina Tarantino Dreamy Jewel Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.32 oz.) is part of the newly repackaged and launched beauty line by jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino. The eyeshadow formula in the palettes is supposed to have “intense, shimmery payoff” with “ultra high pigmentation.” The eyeshadows are touted as long-wearing and can be applied wet or dry. Each compact contains a good amount of eyeshadow, too, with each eyeshadow averaging out to 0.064 oz. (the average eyeshadow is around 0.05 oz.). For the price of two high-end eyeshadows, you’ll get five.
