Tarte Buried Treasure Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette with ten shades in various warm, neutral tones.
The palette is supposed to have a “creamy powder formula” that will “cut your blending time in half” and “primes lids for payoff.” The consistency was dense but softly pressed, so there was some excess product that kicked up in the pan, but it adhered more smoothly to the skin than expected. There were some shades that were a little looser and more shimmery, and they did not seem to go on as evenly without a primer as one might want. The formula seemed better than the average Tarte eyeshadow for a holiday palette, but I generally find their mega-palettes to be more prone to problems than smaller ones like this palette. The shades themselves seemed fairly dupable, and the varying sizes of the pans may not work for all.
