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.

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.

Made my life EASIER

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

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.

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!

Haven't worn any other colors since I got this palette. Love tarte shadows!
Definitely a Favorite
Becca Lynn from NC
These are beautiful, natural mattes! Not only have I used mine constantly, but I have purchased several as gifts. **Every! Single! Time! I have given one, I have been told it was a great palette & how much they loved it!** Perfect for every day or you can build the deeper shadows for an evening look. The mattes are excellent for older eyelids also - they help hide fine lines. This is a STAPLE for every collection.

colors weren't what i expected and it comes off SOO FAST when i use this i have to reapply multiple times a day
If you wear cool toned mattes
Colleen MK from NY
It's a must try. The shadows nearly blend themselves. Beautiful colors for day and night. Good job, Tarte!
I will definitely purchase another Tarte Palette

Great colors, great coverage and very blen-able!
Highly pigmented and great shades
Jane from Colorado Springs
Lasts all day without creasing. Apply over lid primer. The black makes a beautiful eyeliner.
LeslieB from New York
I'm new to Tarte palettes and I love them! I wish I would have found them years ago! The colors look good, they don't flake in the palette itself, they're easy to put on and blend and they last a long time. I hope they don't discontinue any of them!
I love this pallet.
JessWall from Texas
Beautiful shades!! All of them blend well and last all day. No smudging.
Terrible without primer

Does not stay!!! Colors are beautiful and they're pigmented but they come off so quick
My Go-To Palette
Diane, Delta FA from Denver, CO
I am only shopping to see if there is a new Tarte Palette I can't live without. Because despite having this for 2 years, Only one of the colors is even showing through to the base. I use THAT little. Because these pigments are rich and long-lasting. My only concern is, after 2 years, do I really need to replace? I could probably get another 2 years out of this.
Manda from TN
This was probably the first pallet I ever bought...Way back in 2017 when I knew nothing about makeup. I still use this almost everyday. These neutrals look good on my cool/pinky skin, whereas so many other pallets run a little too warm for me (Too Faced shadows look orange)

I got his palette in a fab fit fun box and ITS AMAZING!! Smells so good and applies nicely!
Love this product

Love the colors! Pigment very rich and very matte!
V from My living room
I am quite mature and I love matte shadows, but sometimes they can appear chalky. I decided to purchase this palette and I'm so glad I did! I do use a primer before applying, but the colors appear matte and silky after application and they stay all day. They can be applied wet or dry. I tend to use the first two rows as lid/highlight shades and the others as liners. Wet or dry, the shades are just beautiful and so silky. I WILL repurchase this palette!
Mature ladies, don't miss this one!
