Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette ($21.00 for .018 oz.) includes six neutral eyeshadows in a slim, cardboard palette with a mirror on the inside. I could see it being an easy go-to or travel palette for those who like warmer neutrals and typically use a primer when they apply their eyeshadow. It’s not a particularly unique or the best performing palette, but it’s solid and a decent value.

Whisper is described as a “light pink.” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nice color payoff with a soft, silky consistency that was a smidgen powdery but very blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Bare (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Crush is described as a “taupe shimmer.” It’s a sparkling, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a metallic finish and chunkier sparkle. The texture was drier and dusty with some of the sparkles coming loose from the base color, which made it messy to work with and to apply. The color was prone to sheering out on the skin, so I would highly recommend a primer or possibly a creamier, tackier base to minimize fall out with this one.

Heartbreaker is described as a “brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark chocolaty brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. It blended out well and applied without issue. The color lasted for eight hours on me. It stayed on for seven and a half hours but had fall out. Make Up For Ever M630 Sweet Chestnut (P, $21.00) is more muted (95% similar). LORAC Corduroy (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

Wink is described as a “light mauve.” It’s a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was slightly dusty, but it blended nicely on the skin. It’s the type of texture that may not work well on drier skin types without a primer. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Dior Golden Shock #4 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Stila Pale Pink (LE, $18.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Pale, Please (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar).

BFF is described as a “plum.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned plummy burgundy with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency. This shade was a little patchy to blend out on my eyelid without primer, but I think a primer would help it in that respect. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me.
