Tarte Tartelette In Bloom: Palette Collection Review Series

I spent quite a bit of time researching palettes before I picked this up back in October. Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom has some of the best recommendations and reviews on Sephora, YouTube and other Beauty Blogs that I figured I could not go wrong purchasing this. It’s even recommended over the original Tartelette palette (I don’t own that so I can’t confirm).

I ordered mine off the Tarte website and got 20% off my order. After using this palette so many times I can see why this is at the top of many makeup lovers lists.

What It Is
9 mattes and 3 luster finishes. This palette is infused with Tarte’s signature Amazonian clay formula, all in a chic, portable palette with a beautiful floral design. (Sephora.ca)Tartelette In Bloom_LBL (3)Price
Regular Price is $60.00 CAD, I paid $48.00 CAD (0.636 oz total weight)

Packaging/Scent
I absolutely love the packaging of this palette. It’s about 4×5″ which makes it perfect for travel and storing with the rest of my makeup. This is a sturdy plastic in reflective gold with a flower petal design on the lid. I think this is one of my favourite looking packages. This palette also has a vanilla scent. It’s nothing like the Too Faced palettes which can be strong, this is much more subtle.
Tartelette In Bloom_LBL (2)Colours
The layout of this palette makes it easy to put together an eyelook. Each row can be broken down into a quad. The first shade can be used under the brow bone and inner corner as highlight. The second can be used in the crease. The third shade over the lid, and the forth to deepen the outer corner.

This is a beautiful neutral and warm palette, with reddish and brown shades. The colours are very everday wearable mattes, with pops of shimmers. Unlike my other palettes I wear every single shade over and over. My only issue with this palette are the colours activist and smokeshow which are too close to being the same shade. Rocker is my favourite shade and I absolutely love rebel. I love the way these colours are layed out because I literally will pick a light, medium and dark shade and put it on my lid, each colour works so well with the next. I think this is one of the best thought-out palettes I own.
Tartelette In Bloom_LBL (4)Application, Wear & Longevity
The pigmentation on this palette is so good! I actually don’t need to lay down a base for these to pop and to last which is quite amazing. I don’t know what it is about Amazonian clay, but it really packs a punch here. The palette is not powdery but I do experience quite a bit of fallout, so I ensure that I put these on before I move onto foundation.

My Eyelook
I used mostly the middle row to create this look. I put flower child all over my lid with charmer on the brow bone. I then worked smarty pants into the outer half of my crease. I put firecraker (look at that shimmer!) all over my lid and used activist to darken the over V of my eyelids. I ran a little bit rebel on my lower lid. I love the look and love how the layout of the palette made this easy to put together. Tartelette In Bloom_LBL (5)Breakdown

Pros

  • Easy to put together eyelooks
  • Amazing luster shades
  • Fantastic Pigmentation
  • Adorable Packaging

Cons

  • Some Fallout
  • Activist and Smokeshow are the same colour on me

My Thoughts
I recommend this palette to anyone who is starting off using makeup or just wants a solid palette with easy to do looks. It has everything I want in a palette, perfect pigmentation, warm and neutral tones, great shades to wear together and alone, and is easy to travel with.

Do you have the Tartelette In Bloom Palette? What do you think of it?

Lots of Love,
Dal

  1. I’ve heard great things about this palette – it’s been recommended to me before!
    The shade Rebel definitely jumps out at me as being unique!
    And I hate it when palettes include really similar shades – if they look similar in a swatch, it means there will look the same when blended out on the eye.

    • It’s a really good simple, easy to use palette- I like it if I’m going on a weekend trip and want one palette to use for eyes and highlight. I’m sure you could dupe this palette with your single eyeshadows though – I sure can because I tend to gravitate these colours a lot, haha!

      A lot of people complain that Tarte is missing a really deep black shade in this palette- instead they went for a deep brown and lighter black which look the same.

    • Thanks! I can’t say enough good things about it. If you buy off the Tarte website they have sales often if you sign up for their emails and wait for the next one. I think this palette is definitely worth it!
