Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
First let me say I have never met a Tarte shadow that I didn't love. This palette is no exception. The shadows are extremely smooth and blendable, the shades are wearable and super pigmented, the packaging is gorgeous, I could go on and on. So in short if you are even considering this palette, BUY IT. You won't regret it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Gorgeous colors, lots of fall out
So let's talk about good things first. It smells really good so that's a plus. The compact was sturdy and the colors are all beautiful and you can create a good amount of looks with it. However, it's a little difficult to apply if you're new to makeup because it just puffs everywhere like baby powder so if you're the type to do your eye makeup last like me, I would suggest flipping your routine and doing at least your eyeshadow first so you don't have to worry about ruining your freshly beat face. Also, I felt like the shadows weren't super pigmented although that may just be a product of me having dark skin but I had to use quite a bit of eye shadow and I wouldn't recommend using it without a primer and a setting spray because I feel it fades pretty quickly. I think it's okay but I wouldn't recommend it. There's better eye shadows out there in the same price range.

The perfect palette to compliment my brown eyes! You can go more taupe or neutral, smoky, natural or glam it up just a bit with the 3 shimmer colors. The only palette I'll ever need for my everyday and going out looks.
Great selection of eyeshadow shades

Literally the best palette I've used

Everything about this palette is what I wanted. The shadows are so rich but not overpowering. Completely worth it.
Best palette I've ever owned
Emi from Ohio
I would give it a hundred stars if I could. I have had this palette for at least five years. It has been my go-to palette that entire time, and I am just now running out of shadow in flower child, charmer, and smarty pants, with a recent pan in funny girl as well. Five. Years!! The shadows are buttery and go on smooth, they are so versatile, and smell lovely and sweet. All of the shimmers are excellent, and can be layered. I don't have a lot of use for the right side of the palette, but I don't wear dark makeup often, so that's preference. My biggest complaint is that the dark brown and black shades go on almost identical. The rest of the palette is distinct enough not to run into this issue. I agree with another reviewer that primer is a must as well—the shadows are very soft and blendable, so they need that extra help in my experience. The shimmers could probably go on without a primer.
I would buy this as a gift for someone
Chelle from Prescott, AZ
I initially got this pallet because it looked like it had several transition shades that would work really well for my skin tone. Usually in pallets, they only have one transition shade that I can use and I end up with a bunch of shades I never use. This one has a lot, plus several other shades and I am pleased that I can use the entire pallet with both day and night looks!
Perfect neutral every day palette
Krys from Saylorsburg, PA
This palette. Let me tell you. I honestly had very low expectations for it and it blew me away. The shadows are pigmented and buttery smooth, they blend amazing, I love the yummy sweet vanilla scent, the packaging is adorable, and the shades are perfect for every day!! I never reach for any of my other high end palettes. I love the versatility. There are light subtle colors and dark smoky colors to bring your looks from daytime to night. And I love how the dark shades can also make a nice liner in a pinch. I will never be without this palette as long as Tarte makes it. Love love love!!
Love the colors
Susan from Rochester New York

Best nude color pallet
Millissa from Moltonburo, New Hampshire
It smells so good and has some if the best nude colors I've ever used.
Favorite palette ever!
HEMarshall from Texas
I am not a makeup artist by any means! But I love the looks I can create with this palette. I use it almost every day. The only slight issue I have is the gold shimmery Funny Girl shadow produces a lot of fallout, which is likely because I don't know what I'm doing lol. Definitely will keep buying this palette!❤️
Easy to use everyday palette
SB from TX
This is great for days where I don't want to think about my eyeshadow. All the colors work well together and they blend so easily. I can create a very soft, barely there look or something a bit more dramatic and smokey. The eyeshadows do have a sweet scent, but I like it. The packaging is nice and I enjoy the size of the mirror.
Amy Lynn from Milton, PA
This is a great palette. The formula is perfection. If you are new to makeup this is easy to blend, create nice looks and pigmented. Its also great for makeup lovers. Smells good as well.
Alex from Vancouver, WA
This was my go to for a long time. However I have gotten sick of it. But I bought it 3 times! That's how much I loved it! I would recommend this to anyone!
Nelly from Sacramento, Ca
This is a perfect starter or go to everyday pallet.
My absolute favorite!!!
it's me from USA
Super easy to put on. Plenty of variety and different options for looks. Absolutely my favorite! Should have tried it years ago. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. No eczema outbreaks with this formula for me! Did I mention that I LOVE it?
I would absolutely by this again
Mama from Oregon
So far, it doesn't bother my eyes. I've had eye sensitivity with other brands. Love the colors!
PayPay from Georgia
Happiness in a Palette! I recieved this for christmas and have been wanting for a while. I stick to very light shadows and this looked perfect! Love all the shades except the last three! If you have been debating for awhile try it! Life changing.
Love the shades
Arnela from Florida
I'm really satisfied with this palette. It has everything a pallette needs, a couple of matt shades, some shimmers, light and dark shades, and a very nice set of colors. The size of it is also a great plus because you can easily carry it with you if you need touch-ups. The smell is absolutely divine and sets it apart from other brands. Colors are long-lasting and they're easily buildable and blendable. They are a little bit flaky but that is not a big issue for me.
I really love these colors!
Nicky from Nevada
I use everyday. Since I am 55, I have to be careful with glitter, but this is a nice blend of matte and glitter, so I put a little glitter shade on my eyelid, but use the mattes for the rest.
Chloe from Cullman, AL
I can make some pretty looks and I love the colors, but I find the darker colors don't blend well.
Denise from Long Beach, CA
The colors are so pretty, I love the natural colors. I also love that most of the colors are matte and not shimmer. Hands down the worst part of this palette is the pigmentation and powdery consistency of the shadows. You have to really build up the eye shadow to get a nice pigmented color, and even then it doesn't seem to last too long.
Good palette...some disappointments
Kacy from Columbus
I was super excited to get this palette but when i received it in the mail on of the shadows came broken and another shadow had the "tarte" wording upside down. With that being said the colors are beautiful and blend super well. I will keep it and continue to use it but was disappointed that it came kind of wonky like it was just thrown together. Otherwise it's a good palette!
Not the best quality
Lee from Cleveland TN
The pigments appear differently in the pan then they do on the eyes. It requires multiple swipes just to appear and it doesn't last long so it requires multiple touch ups.
Must wear a primer
Sma5 from Hawaii
I had been eyeing this neutral palette for so long and finally purchased it. It's alright. I'm a little disappointed because I don't like to add the extra step of using an eyeshadow primer but with these shadows I absolutely need one. If I don't the shadows will fade and crease in just a couple of hours. I should have just spent less money on a colourpop palette. They are just as good and don't crease on me.
I love the texture and colors. Will certainly buy again
Grana from Fayetteville, TN
Love the eye colors
some are ashy, mostly very pigmented
ak from chicago
some of the shadows look the same on my eyelids but it's very easy to blend and apply !! shimmers are the highlight of this palette.
