      Comments about Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette Vol. 2:

      This palette is great for travel and I love the color selection. The eyeshadows are really good to create everyday looks and I love how you are given a clear layout and can easily put a look together. I love the blush, bronzer, and highlighter (my favorite part of the palette). The highlight is super glittery so if that's something that bothers you it's something to keep in mind. Overall this is a really good everyday palette and it's perfect for travel.

      Comments about Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette Vol. 2:

      this palette is so gorgeous. stone could use a little more pigment and you might need to use glitter glue. also the bronzer is a little light but just what i like for travel.

      it is beautiful

      By kimvsmakeup

      from San Antonio

      Comments about Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette Vol. 2:

      I loved mine but it is not perfect. There is fall out with the shimmer shades (use a glitter glue) but overall the colors are perfect for a nude look. packaging is gorgeous and it smells sweet. If you have a larger makeup collection, you probably have a better highlighter and shimmer shades, but they are also by no means bad. Just not the best. Nonetheless, I enjoy this palette.

      I picked this up because the original tarte clay play is my GO TO pallet, but this left SO much to be desired. I preferred the original.

      Comments about Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette Vol. 2:

      Absolutely love this pallet. We are going away for a few days and this will be perfect to travel with. I can do so much with this. The bronzer is a little to dark so I use the Lumi bronzer in light. But overall its wonderful and not a lot of fallout if any.

      Good, but not great

      By Meh

      from Wisconsin

      Comments about Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette Vol. 2:

      The shades are pretty, but there is not enough dimension for a full eye look. I actually use the blush and bronzer on the eye to help with that. The highlighter is incredibly chunky with glitter and broke apart almost immediately after purchase. Overall, if you like simple looks it's a good palette. Just remove the highlighter before it crumbles all over! (Pans are magnetic)

      Great for Travel

      By BaeRita

      from Gainesville, FL

      Comments about Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette Vol. 2:

      I bought this palette for travel. I have a month-long trip coming up, and I won't be wearing makeup everyday, so I don't want to bring a ton of it with me. I bought this palette because I COULD NOT BELIEVE that the one contour shade it came with was perfect for me, and I like the rest of the palette fine. I have the hardest time finding a good contour shade. Everything makes my face look muddy, orange, or weirdly flushed. Only a few products have ever really worked for me. This is probably the best shade for contouring that I have ever encountered aside from Fenty's Match Stix Matte Stick in Amber (which was a gift sent from the heavens). Other than the contour shade, I think the palette is fine. I like that it comes with a range of matte and shimmer shades, and the blush is similar in color to other blushes I like. Overall I think it's a great palette. My only complaint is the packaging—it's beautiful but not great for travel. I wish the case was closed on the sides and had a more secure closure. I will have to pack this very carefully when I leave for my trip.

      If I'm being honest, I'll probably end up bringing a second travel eyeshadow palette, which is why I took one star off. I like to have jewel tones and a dark color for when I go out, and I plan on going out a lot during this trip. I'll likely bring Huda's Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette in Mauve. I think it will pair beautifully with this one.

      For reference, my skin is very light with olive undertones.

        So what went wrong with this chunky, powdery mess of a highlighter that shatters in every shipment and even during mid-use? Was so disappointed about this it almost ruined the whole palette for me.

      • Q:

        Why did you take the original clay face palette off the market? It was awesome. I bought 5 of the 1st palette in total. 2 too keep and 3 for gifts. And I am so glad I kept an extra for myself. As for this palette it is a huge disappointment. I was so looking forward to buying it until I saw it. I was hoping it would be a shimmer and glamour look to the 1st. But this was a huge let down. Please rethink the new palette and bring back the other. Make them to be mixed and match. One for the natural look which the 1st had and one for a more glamorous night time look. As for the way it is now. It is really unacceptable. I am sorry to say this because I love Tarte products. None of the original colors should have been used and all you did is slap in some left over stuff in the original palette and didn't even bother to change the name. I hope there is a 3 launched soon to replace this huge mistake that was pulled on your loyal customers.

          A:

          After we launched the original clay play palette, we took all the feedback from our loyal tartelettes and wanted to quickly come out with a sequel that addressed everything you asked for! We created a new outer packaging box to easily differentiate between the two versions, but utilized the same compact design so that we could bring you the updates as soon as possible. Version 1 contains all matte, neutral shades with 3 contouring powders, while Version 2 swaps out some shades to add 3 luster shadows, 1 contouring bronzer, 1 blush and 1 shimmering highlighter!
