So I actually purchased the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette on the Sephora website by mistake (oops!) The palette I meant to buy was the Tartelette In Bloom Clay Palette, but I didn’t realize my mistake until the package was delivered.
The main reason why I was disappointed with this mistake is that I already have SO many matte eyeshadows and was looking for a few new shimmer/metallic shades.
I thought about returning the palette in exchange for the In Bloom palette, but can you ever have too many shades of eyeshadow? I don’t think so.
It’s a great, natural palette and I like the colours a lot. Unfortunately, the colours are not as pigmented as I would have liked them to be. You can see the swatches below:
To make the swatches as dark as they are I had to go over the spot quite a few times. I was pretty disappointed.
Another thing I’ll add is that this palette is pretty similar to my Too Faced Natural Matte Palette. And, if I had to choose between the Too Faced palette or the Tartelette palette, I would choose Too Faced hands down. I like the colours better and the formula is better. The palette has 3 less colours than the Tartelette and still wins. Sorry Tarte.
All in all, I don’t hate the palette. It’s great for everyday makeup and I actually mix and match the shades with the Too Faced palette a lot.
BUT, I do wish I didn’t make that mistake and I wish I ordered the Tartelette In Bloom Clay Palette (like I meant to). So sad. Next time.
Final Rating: 7/10
