Toasted

Tarte Toasted Tartelette Amazonian Clay Palette ($46.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains 12 shades of warm neutrals with a mix of mattes and metallics. I wish there was more variety in the shimmery shades–three are variations on medium copper!–and that the gold shade was more finely-milled and had a firmer press. The eyeshadows performed decently, but the powderiness of the mattes made them the type of texture that needed a primer to do well.

Tarte Crackle Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow

Crackle

Crackle is a deep brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. It was the type of shade where the sparkles made it look pretty in the pan but made it more annoying to use, as the sparkles did not bind with the powder and just dropped below the lid (or got trapped in the brush). The texture was soft and finely-milled but powdery. It had good pigmentation that lasted well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, mica, synthetic fluorphlogopite, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, caprylyl glycol, hexylene glycol, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, sodium dehydroacetate, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, carmine (CI 75470), ultramarines (CI 77007), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742), titanium dioxide (CI 77891).

Cashmere

Cashmere is a bright, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a very powdery texture that felt a little dry and chalky, but it applied and blended out better than expected. There was a ton of excess product kicked up in the pan, though. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, talc, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, caprylyl glycol, hexylene glycol, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, sodium dehydroacetate, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492).

Warmth

Warmth is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, but it was blendable and easy to work with as long as I tapped off the excess prior to applying it to my lid. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours before fading on me.

Cozy

Cozy is a deep, reddened brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque, while the texture was soft and blendable but moderately powdery, so it took some care to use and avoid fallout. It started to fade noticeably on me after seven and a half hours of wear.

Ingredients

Talc, mica, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, caprylyl glycol, hexylene glycol, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, sodium dehydroacetate, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, carmine (CI 75470), ultramarines (CI 77007), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742).

Candle

Candle is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. The consistency was chunky and more loose pressed in the pan, so there was a lot of fallout and poor adhesion to the lid without a tacky base or dampened brush. It lasted for seven hours but had some fallout over time.

Ingredients

Mica, synthetic fluorphlogopite, alumina, caprylic/capric triglyceride, oryza sativa (rice) extract, talc, glyceryl behenate, zinc stearate, dimethicone, aluminum dimyristate, caprylyl glycol, disodium stearoyl glutamate, ethylene/acrylic acid copolymer, hexylene glycol, lauroyl lysine, phenoxyethanol, poloxamer 338, silica, sodium dehydroacetate, tin oxide, triethoxycaprylylsilane, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, carmine (CI 75470), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492).

Latte

Latte is a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good, and it was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture was moderately powdery and kicked up plenty of product in the pan, so it was hard to pack it on without getting tons of fallout. It wore well for six and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, caprylyl glycol, hexylene glycol, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, sodium dehydroacetate, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), titanium dioxide (CI 77891).

Simmer

Simmer is a medium copper with warm, golden undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin,b ut the texture was a bit drier and took more effort to pickup evenly with a brush. The texture would be better served by a dampened brush for application. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, talc, caprylic/capric triglyceride, oryza sativa (rice) extract, dimethicone, glyceryl behenate, zinc stearate, aluminum dimyristate, caprylyl glycol, disodium stearoyl glutamate, ethylene/acrylic acid copolymer, hexylene glycol, kaolin, lauroyl lysine, phenoxyethanol, poloxamer 338, silica, sodium dehydroacetate, triethoxycaprylylsilane, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, vanillin, carmine (CI 75470), yellow 5 lake (CI 19140), ultramarines (CI 77007), bronze powder (CI 77400), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77499), titanium dioxide (CI 77891).

Fireside is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer.

To me, many of Tarte’s eyeshadow palettes are interchangeable and this one is very similar to all of the brands other releases.
As you have said in your opening comments Christine, there are many similar shades here and the introduction of some colours would have made this palette stand out from the rest.
As it is, it is generally a fairly average palette.
A lovely eye look, as usual Christine.

That’s pretty much my reaction too, Genevieve – so many of these Tarte palettes look more or less identical to one another (some might have one or 2 cooler shades thrown in). Years ago, I used to be quite interested in their palette releases but that died out pretty quickly as they seemed to be the same shades with new names.

When this first came out I thought I had to buy it…. but now with this review and the dupes list I realize I already have some of the best shades. Thank you for saving me money!

I really love these sorts of warm and “toasty” shades, but having ABH Modern Renaissance, ColourPop Yes, Please and many a warm MAC, UD, etc. single eyeshadow, it’s unlikely I really *need* it.

This is on my wishlist, but the B rating makes it a bit easier to pass it up. I really shouldn’t spend the money on a palette that I can probably recreate with shadows I already own.

These warm, light neutrals are my fundamentals. I’ve been sorely tempted by this palette even though I can dupe most shades in various placers in my stash. It’s a convenience and good size for travel, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately. Something to think about after the holidays rush.

I didn’t need this palette, I have dupes but they’re spread alll over the place. I adore these types of colors, they are my favorites, so I bought this during the Sephora sale and I have to say-I love absolutely everything about this palette. It is definitely one of my all time favorite palettes.
