Make Believe In Yourself

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette ($40.00 for 0.485 oz.) includes ten eyeshadows and one highlighter. housed in a circular compact with a large mirror inside. The formula is supposed to have a “silky-soft” texture and a “long-lasting finish without any fallout or chalkiness.” Across the board, the formula featured a denser powder texture, where there was no excess product kicked up in the pan and often using a patting/pushing motion with brushes was better than gently sweeping for picking up product onto a brush. There were a few that I think would work best with flat, synthetic brushes rather than anything fluffy (like Wings and Marvel).

The majority of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, frosted and metallic in finish, and blendable on the eye, though a couple ran sheerer or seemed chunkier in texture, so they required a little more finessing. The lone matte eyeshadow seemed out of place, both with respect to the tone of it (pinker) as well as the fact that it’s not going to work across all skin tones. Since the whole palette is so shimmery, I think that the one matte eyeshadow should have just been one more shimmer, as I expect anyone who would have wanted a matte eyeshadow to need to reach for more mattes than just the one presently included. The highlighter was intense but might emphasize one’s natural skin texture at medium or great coverage levels. The palette’s powders had a subtle, vanilla scent.

Tarte Believe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter

Tarte Believe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter

Tarte Believe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter

Believe

Believe is a bright, pale white with a cooler base undertone and warmer, golden shimmer and sparkle that shifted from almost a dirty, grayish white gold to a warmer, pinky-gold white. The finish was more metallic with some sparkle, so for those who prefer a more intense highlight, I think this will work well. The texture was a bit denser than most highlighter formulas, so I’d use a denser brush and pat the surface rather than using a sweeping motion. It blended out well, was very pigmented, and lasted for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, talc, ethylhexyl palmitate, zinc stearate, calcium aluminum borosilicate, boron nitride, silica, caprylic/capric triglyceride, caprylyl glycol, hexylene glycol, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, sodium dehydroacetate, tin oxide, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, titanium dioxide (CI 77891).

Tarte Myth Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Myth Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Myth

Myth is a muted, medium rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage paired with a soft, finely-milled texture that was soft enough that it was a bit powdery and prone to sheering out on the skin. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear on me.

Tarte Wings Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Wings Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Wings

Wings is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was very dense with this one, and it was harder to pick up product with a brush (even using my standard technique for this type of formula). I wouldn’t describe it as truly stiff, as I was able to blend out the edges without extra effort. It seemed to have more semi-opaque pigmentation, which was sort of buildable, but it lacked the intensity of a lot of other shades in the palette. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before creasing.

Tarte Marvel Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Marvel Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Marvel

Marvel is a light-medium, “cooler” gold with a metallic finish and finer sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, though it was buildable; I noticed some emphasis of texture on my lid when layered. The eyeshadow had a firmer, denser feel to it that was almost “wet” to the touch, and it yielded a thinner, smoother layer of product on the actual lid. It wore well for seven and a half hours and had a touch of fallout.

Trance

Trance is a medium-dark, taupe brown with cooler undertones and a metallic finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff paired with a smooth, almost wet-like texture that was denser in the pan. I was able to layer this one and did not notice emphasis of my lid’s texture, though. On me, the color started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear.

Tarte Fairy Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Fairy

Fairy is a light-medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was smooth, dense, and cream-like so it was still easy to use and apply for even, opaque coverage. It wore well for just over eight hours on me before creasing.

Tarte Mystic Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Tarte Mystic Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Mystic

Mystic is a light-medium silver with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff that went on fairly evenly, but it took some extra effort to blend and smooth out on bare skin. I actually felt like it applied better over bare skin than over eyeshadow primer. The consistency was dense but not stiff, but had slightly chunkier shimmer overall. The eyeshadow lasted for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.

Tarte Dream Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Dream

Dream is a muted, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a slightly denser texture that was very smooth and was surprisingly thin on the lid (in a good way). It was easier to build up the color and blend it out in practice than I expected. This shade started crease after eight hours of wear.

Tarte Crystal Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Crystal

Crystal is a muted, medium rosy mauve with cooler undertones paired with warmer, gold shimmer. The texture was denser, almost cream-like, as it yielded a lot of product with a pat of the brush, but it was also chunkier and could easily thicken on the lids, emphasizing texture. I noticed the color could look warmer or cooler depending on what was surrounding it. It wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.

Tarte Pixie Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow

Pixie

Pixie is a light-medium, pink-coral with a golden, metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly. It was one of the easiest shades to use in the palette, as it wasn’t too dense or too soft. The texture was forgiving and blendable as well. The color wore nicely for eight hours on me.
