Tarteist

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow & Blush Palette ($45.00 for 1.18 oz.) is a cheek palette that features one highlighter, one bronzer, and four blushes. I quite enjoyed how they applied and lasted throughout the day across the board, though two shades could have been more blendable than they were. The biggest “issue” I had with the palette was the inclusion of both Electric and Amp blushes–they’re just too similar to have in the same palette. I also think that the palette would have benefited from one blush having a more satin-to-pearl (less intense) finish to make it a more well-rounded set of shades.

Hi-Fi

Hi-Fi is a bright, light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. The texture was soft, creamy, and denser with a thicker consistency, though it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture until it was more opaque on my skin. It had rich color payoff that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me.

Electric

Electric is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of golden shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which I was able to build up to full coverage if preferred. While some shades swatched less confidently, this one did take a bit of extra effort to even out and diffuse along the edges compared to most in the palette, though it wasn’t an ordeal by any means. The texture felt slightly drier and chunkier due to the additional sparkle. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before it faded noticeably.

Tempo

Tempo is an intensely shiny, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold shimmer and sparkle. The blush was incredibly pigmented with a more loosely-pressed consistency that felt surprisingly cream-like without being overly dense/thick. It did emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly when worn at semi-opaque to opaque coverage, though it was so shiny that it wasn’t as bad in person as it could have been (so shiny that light was reflecting nonstop!). This shade stayed on well for nine hours before it started to fade on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Zinc Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Dimethicone, Tin Oxide, Kaolin, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Red 30 Lake (Ci 73360).

Solo

Solo is a light-medium, yellowed brown with a subtle, satiny sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered fairly evenly to bare skin and blended out without too much trouble, but it wasn’t as effortless as best-in-class bronzing powders (or some of the other shades in the palette). The bronzer lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Ingredients

Mica, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Zinc Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Tin Oxide, Dimethicone, Kaolin, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Red 30 (Ci 73360), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77499).

Beat

Beat is a light-medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that felt a touch dusty in the pan. This shade seemed to darken slightly when applied to my cheeks, but it blended out beautifully and yielded such a glowing, luminous finish that didn’t accentuate my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for nine hours before it started to show signs of fading.

Amp

Amp is a bright, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a golden, lightly metallic sheen. It had good color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The texture felt a bit denser and firmer in the pan, but in practice, it applied nicely and blended out without issue (I was worried when I initially swatched!). The blush had a glowing finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on nicely for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

I looked at this on my computer at school and was WOW’d because these ALL looked like shades I could use very happily but now, on my home computer, several look warmer and peachier. HA – maybe I can wear them at SCHOOL but not at home!

Agree with Electric and Amp being too similar for one palette. Also… the packaging is so bulky! It’s a firm pass for me.

I can certainly see what you mean about Amp and Electric being far too similar to be in the same palette like this! Although I do love Amp quite a bit, I’m not going to bother with this cheek palette. Besides, I’m very happy with the Nars Hot Tryst palette and have been getting a lot of use out of that, so I’m not even considering adding another cheek palette any time soon!

I checked this palette out when I was browsing Sephora this weekend. I must admit I was impressed. The blushes swatched nicely and the packaging is quite appealing. I do think they could have gone darker with one of the blushes but overall it is well done. I would buy this if I needed a good travel blush palette.

This is a pretty good blush/hightlighter/bronzer palette if the shades suit you. I really like the finish on this one and think it would suit a wide range of complexions. A great rating too.

This blushes are beautiful and work if you have a deeper skin tone. The best part is that they are magnetized and are easily removed front the palette.

Oh, this is beautiful! Amp looks much more pink to me than Electric, both in the swatch and on the face. That might be my monitor, though. I love bright coral blush, so I wouldn’t much care. lol

I don’t know if I’d really use Solo, though. It too dark as actual bronzer for me. I would have liked a satin mauve blush instead of a bronzer.

Still not buying from Tarte but this seems like a nice palette. I am not really interested in purchasing blush palettes anymore. There always seem to be a lot of shades I can’t use or wouldn’t use and they are so bulky for travel. I generally just pick a neutral blush and take that with me and it works out fine. So, this is a firm pass for me.

Thank you so much for including a photo of the back of the palette Christine! I find it really helpful to know right off the bat that it’s against my rules (Made in China, and also Tarte).
