Most Helpful Positive Review Hesitant; Proven Wrong!
I was nervous about this palette. I'd seen some people post eye looks using it and their looks tended to seem a bit splotchy? I hate to say it.. but their splotchy looks were all user error. This palette has great shades that fit well together, blend well, and wear beautifully. Even though the rows seem to correspond to one another, you can easily mix shades from different rows to create gorgeous combinations.
The color names are so inspiration. To name a few: Force of Nature, Super Mom, Power Player, Bombshell. I'm all about positive affirmations so this tickles me to death.
The packaging is metallic which makes it a bit difficult to read the color names in the right lighting. However, that's the only flaw in the packaging. The packaging is small and thin and the square shape is nice compared to the typical rectangles. The cover is pretty but the mirror is the real wow-factor. First off, the mirror is huge. It takes up the whole inside of the lid, which is a rarity and the square shape is more useful than what I'm use to *looking at you Naked palettes*. Finally, the mirror sits up at about a 90 degree angle. It is PERFECT for sitting the palette in your palm while applying your shadows.
Most Helpful Critical Review Awful, don't waste your time and money
I was so excited to try this palette, but it left me extremely disappointed. The color payoff is very poor, especially when compared to my UD shadows, and it creased within 20 minutes of applying! (My skin is not oily, none of my MAC, NYX or UD shadows crease ever) I used eyelid primer and setting spray, so this is just an awful product. I will be returning it and not buying Tarte shadows again. Even NYX shadows last longer and show up better, for a much lower price.

It's a must have for easy everyday shadow looks. Great colors if u work in an office or school.
not too impressed
gina from san jose
I wanted to give this palette a few months before reviewing. The shadows are pigmented which I like. the downside of this palette is how the shadows blend or lack there of. It always looks so chalky after I blend it.
Great basic palette
Natasha from USA
This is an awesome everyday palette. The shadows are pigmented, easy to blend, and they don't produce too much fallout. The formula also has a really nice, somewhat chocolatey scent — it reminds me a lot of how Too Faced's chocolate bar palettes smell. This has a nice mix of light, medium, and dark colors that can be used to create simple looks, as well as more dramatic ones. The price is not bad for a palette that can be used pretty much on a daily basis by a lot of people.
My favorite eyeshadow collection
Nana from Knoxville, tn
Love the colors in this set. Most eyeshadows today have a shine or shimmer, not the most flattering for older women. So glad I found this set.
love the color pallet!!!
Bobsgirl from WV
Loving this color pallet and how well the shadow goes on!! Very pleased with my purchase because I was a little hesitant because of the cost but it works well so I don't mind the price as much!!!
I don't understand the positive reviews YUCK
TNJLee from TN
The other Tarte eyeshadow palettes I have are fantastic. But this one…it's strange and not quality. Like another reviewer said, they all blend out-and not very well- to this strange grey color. It reminds me of the grey/black/bruise-ish shadow left by mascara smears. YUCK. On top of that they wouldn't blend out, like a very low quality eyeshadow.
My favorite eyeshadow pallet!!!
Josie from Concord
Shadows go on smoothly and last all day !!
All time favorite!
WiLin from Eau Claire WI
Discovered this palette in my mid-60's, every time I put makeup on, I always reach for this palette. Use it for shadow, liner and brows by simply changing brushes! Shimmers & I don't seem to get along anymore & I was very happy to find an all-matte palette. Shades are phenomenal, easily blended from any row. Can be used for casual day wear & easily can intensify for a more dramatic, evening look. Highly recommend to any age range.

This is a great product.
Finally something for the older woman. from Green Bay WI
Love that the dark color in each row can be used as an eyeliner according to the directions that came in the box. The gal who waited on my said that it couldn't. I tried and it worked great with a small brush.
Leslie from Indiana
New fav eyeshadow. Was hesitant about purchasing because some of the colors, but all work very well together. This eyeshadow goes on so smooth, very easy to blend, and last all day. This will definitely be my new go to eyeshadow. Worth the price.
Hi from FL
I have bought this last year on sell and milani drugstore. The milani drugstore eyeshadow is better than Tarte. The dark colour are patchy. It doesn't blend smooth like a bronzer should or blush. I thought my makeup brush it wasn't. I test same brush with different eyeshadow.
The Perfect Palette
MakeupMom from Illinois USA
I'm a fair skinned 52 year old. I love messing around with shadow palettes, but if I'm honest usually only about half the colors in any palette can I reasonably use. This palette is magical. Every shade somehow works with me and the other shades. I hope it is available forever. The shades ,although neutral can be dramatic or toned down as the occasion calls for. 100% a must have.

Goes on smooth, blends well. pleased with purchase
Made my life EASIER
Janetfromanotherplanet from Lafayette, CA
I was struggling with applying eye makeup - 60 has brought a lot of challenge. This palette has totally surprised me...I can apply eye shadow so easily, this blends so beautifully, I still can't believe how smooth it goes on and it still looks great at the end of my day. I ordered an eye shadow base, after reading reviews and cannot say enough about how happy this has made me.
I would buy different shades another time

Love the colors and darker shades I use as eyeliner
Perfect everyday palette
x_StrawberrySoda_x from California
I only wear matte neutrals, so this is the perfect palette for me. The first column is perfect for setting your eyelids after applying primer and for using as lid shades. I use colors on the second column as transition and crease shades. My favorite shade in this palette is "Force of Nature"; I use that shade almost everyday. The third column is great for using as outer corner shades. I don't really use the three darkest shades, so I have no say on those. The reason why I gave this four instead of five stars is because they don't last all day without primer. But they will if you use the Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Worst eyeshadow I've ever used
EPK from Tennessee
The colors don't blend well. The shadows don't have a smooth application and are not pigmented. I am very disappointed with this purchase.
Donna Mc from Bucks County PA
Great product! I love the color palette and make up tips
Huge fan of natural colored shadows
Kris10 Diegan from West Middlesex, PA
I dabble in trying louder bolder eyeshadow, however this pallete is my staple. I do believe it's neutral, but it works for my cool toned light medium complexion! A staple for me and I hope they never stop producing it!
