Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette ($46.00 for 1.32 oz.) includes 20 eyeshadows arranged into four combinations. I like how they separated the colors, as it gives you a good idea of how to start pairing colors together, but if you want to go rogue, there’s nothing stopping you either! It’s a mixed bag; some shades are nice, some shades are difficult to work with, and the rest are somewhere in the middle. I like that there’s a mix of warmer and cool(er) shades, and there is a nice mix of finishes and depths, so you can get a variety of looks out of the palette. I also liked that this was a much slimmer palette compared to Tarte’s other holiday offerings, which are housed in bulky containers, so this would work better for traveling and take up less room when stored. I wish, though, that the quality was more consistent. The formula felt a little less smooth and silky compared to the brand’s permanent palettes (like Tartelette) but was also less dusty/powdery, though I had similar issues with the colors fading faster than average.

Pixel is a light peachy beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable and applied well to bare skin.

Love Hue is a soft, light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a mostly matte finish, though there is a dusting of silvery sparkle, but it doesn’t bind with the base, so it has little impact on the finish.

On the Monet is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The pigmentation was good, but the texture was thin and drier to the touch–it was surprisingly thin for a richer, warmer, and more bronzy shade. I found it prone to fading, as it only lasted for six hours, and sheering out on the lid. NABLA Cosmetics Ludwig (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Inked is a deep navy blue with a hint of purple paired with a matte finish. The texture was very dusty–almost chalky–and very prone to adhering better in some places and less so in others, which resulted in an uneven application that couldn’t be corrected by trying to blend it out (it just wouldn’t move).

Exhibit is a soft, light pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that was thin and prone to sheering out.

Pop Art Princess is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a sparkly, metallic finish. The texture was drier and a little gritty, so there was fall out during application. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which applied better with a firm brush or fingertip, as I noticed some skipping and patchiness when I used a regular domed eyeshadow brush. It wore well for six and a half hours before creasing. Laura Mercier Primrose (PiP, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Lifted (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Modern Icon is a muted, medium pinky-mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a thinner, drier texture that absorbed the skin’s natural oils very easily, which resulted in more uneven color that was difficult to blend out. This shade wore for seven hours on me.

Getty Up & Go is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was fairly blendable and didn’t turn patchy when blended out. The color wore well for just over seven and a half hours when I tested it. Urban Decay Neo (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Ciate Flirt (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Illusion is a deep purple with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was on the drier side, which made it harder to blend out for more diffused edges. I noticed a bit of fading after seven hours of wear.

Sigh. I wish Tarte would stop bombarding us with one mediocre, mixed bag holiday palette after another, all with very similar color combos, and just shove their awesome LE Metallic singles into a value kit, and call it a day! I have 7 of those LE singles (all bought at 50% off), and they are LIGHT YEARS ahead of any of the regular shadows, on par with the best of MUFE Artist and UD. Or give us the Rainforest of the Sea formula again in another palette, but not this.

It appears that they do multiple mega sets so they can have one exclusive to each retailer, but it makes one wonder just how much time/effort they put into each :/

Amen to Tarte putting together a truly NICE palette using the Metallic or RFOTS formula, plus doing the one smart thing they did do here; add color! Then it would be a worthwhile palette to have.

I would have dug this palette more had the performance been a bit more consistent. I’m not sure it’s worth the purchase this time around, but your eye looks are stunning even so!

Lots and lots of pink tones, vanilla and neutrals with splashes of colour – seascape and the purples. To me this is more of a summer palette than for autumn.
I love the seascape shade, but have lots of the other shades that I like. The ratings are all over the place, with the mattes not the best.
Beautiful eye looks Christine.

I LOVE the colors in this palette, and the layout and the NAMES!! (I was an Art History major in college!) so all these art history names coming from Tarte this season are really calling to me. I wish the quality was better dang it. But I’m so in love with Seascape that I may buy this.
