tarte 5-pc Holiday Amazonian Clay Shadow Sticks Collection
Not for me
Colors are great but during the presentation never once was the glitter mentioned.. Sent this back.
Best eye shadow! I have hazel eyes, all the colors work well! EASY to create dramatic looks or very causal neutral looks. I will order these again if I see them come back into stock!
I received this as a gift and was very pleased. The colors are beautiful and they last all day. I have really become a tarte fan. I have golden brown eyes and these colors work great. Thanks Maureen!
A bit too glittery - need primer
Although I do love the colors they appear to be too glittery for me. If you don't use primer they do come off if you have hanging lids. However primer does help with that. I wish they would stop using glitter in their shadows. I prefer silky to glittery!
No Staying Power
Loved the colors, and liked the little bit of glitter even though I'm in my 60's and shouldn't. They just didn't stay on. They looked beautiful at first and then by the afternoon they were gone. The little bit that did stay on had drifted under my eye. Sent them back
Bought as a gift for myself and someone else. They are easy to work with and seem to be goof-proof when applying. The colors are great.
Happy with purchase
I have been using Mally sticks for awhile and wanted to try Tarte. I am happy with the colors and the staying power. Very similar to Mally.
I like, but....
Stays on amazing with the eye primer I use but the colors are too similar. Because of that, I will be returning.
Moves,Smudges and rubs off lids
Love the colors, but these shadows do not stay on. Minutes after you apply them, shadow base or no shadow base, all five colors rub off right after you apply them. I sent them back. Much prefer Mally's.
I have been wearing brown eyeshadow as a base for 35 years, (I'm 52) these shadows are great in the way they can be applied. I use them to highlight, the lighter colors in the corner of my eye and the others in the middle of my eye. The shadow sticks I recieved have a little shimmer no glitter to them. they glide on smoothly and hold up all day and the colors are beautiful. Happy with my purchase.
Beautiful Colors, Easy and Quick
I was worried when reviews started coming in on these after I purchased two sets. I had planned on keeping a set and giving one to my adult daughter as a stocking stuffer. I feared they would be glittery but was very pleased when they arrived. I've been using them for a couple of weeks now and don't find them to be glittery but instead, having a sheen to most of the colors. I'm pushing 50 and am conservative with my makeup and I feel these are not too over the top in any way. I'm totally comfortable wearing them to work. They are a breeze to put on and I just use my finger to blend. These colors stay on all day but I do use the Tarte eye shadow primer which helps, I'm sure. I'm so glad I purchased these and i think my daughter will absolutely love them as well.
Takes to long to dry
I will most likely return mine as I find that they take forever to dry. Not to mention unless you are under 20 you cannot use most of the colors with all the sparkle in them. Really wanted to love them because her foundation is wonderful and I assumed the same to be true with her Shadows, but, not so in my case.
