A220108 - tarte Rising Star Holiday Face Palette
Star Holiday face palette
I'm 22 years old and a big tarte fan but this was not my favorite. Most colors had too much shimmer for my liking and for some odd reason the pigment of the colors didn't really catch on my skin :/ I also agree with some else said that the quality of the brushes weren't that great compared to other tarte brushes that are provided with their products. Love tarte didn't love this.
I love the choice of colors, and really stays on all day. Plus the price is unbeatable!
I purchased this holiday face palette before Christmas. I have only been using Tarte cosmetics for a few months. It is a wonderful collection and a great value. Perfect to carry with you to always have "fresh on hand" to touch up during the day or evening. A salute to you Maureen for providing excellent, quality products in an animal cruelty free environment. I love to see the little "pink bunny ears" on your products and know when I use them that no animal was used in the testing of your products.
You get a lot of bang for your buck with this compact.
Nice Eye Shadow Kit
I am pretty happy with this kit. The one surprise, tho, when I got it was all the glitter and shine. Wasn't sure I could wear all that at my age, but I do and I am pretty happy with the look. Its not over the top glittery but does have some sparkle to it. The colors are very nice, and you can use some of the lighter ones to tone down the darker colors.
I love Tarte! I love this color palette. The name says it all.. Rising star... that's what you become when you apply this. You will not be dissapointed.
Too Much Sparkle
I love the Tarte line, but this collection had too much sparkle for me. The presentation was excellent, with so much value for the money.
heavy and flacky
I use BE make up, but want to try another natural make-up. I tried this clay based make -up. Compare to BE it feels much heavier on , it has a lot of glitter, and it flake a lot all over the face . Colors are beautiful in this palette, but compact and application are messy.
All of the mentioned above make me stay with BE.
Nice assortment and great sizes.
I really like this palette. It would be a great starting point for someone new to makeup. The applicators are not great. Tarte brushes are usually very nice. I really like the sizes of the bronzer and highlighter in comparison to the blushes, as you will use more of the highlighter and bronzer. Tarte makes the most natural looking highlighters I have ever used. I love them. The bronzer is very nice as well. Gives a glow to the skin, without being sparkly. The eye shadows are nice. I suggest saving your eye creams for nightime, if you want your eye makeup to last. Use a gel instead, or a very lightweight cream. I like a stickier eye primer with tarte powder shadows. Tarte eye primer works quite well as does UD. I find BE and TF a little too dry with tarte shadows. I also love tarte cream shadows with the powder over top, then no need for primer. Just a few suggestions if you have longevity issues. The pale pink is my favorite. I wish tarte would do a red shadow. Red is so hard to find in shadows, and reds and plums are the opposite of green, and is the best at bringing out green in eyes. Great palette for travel. All you would need to bring with aside from this palette is mascara, lipstick/gloss, foundation/concealer/powder. It is smaller than I thought it would be, but that is my favorite thing about it. Great gift. Not just a december holiday gift, but an anytime gift at a great price.
NOT LONG LASTING
LOVE TARTE COSMETICS, ESPECIALLY THAT THEY HAVE GOOD INGREDIENTS IN THEM. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT IT WAS SAID THE SHADOWS WERE LONG LASTING WHICH AFTER WEARING THEM.....THEY ARE NOT! THEY LAST A LITTLE LONGER IF YOU USE A PRIMER BUT STILL NOT LONG WEARING.
I REALLY LIKE THE KITS....THEY ARE GREAT TO TRAVEL WITH. NOW IF THERE WAS LIPSTICK IN THERE ALONG WITH LONG LASTING SHADOWS IT WOULD BE THE BEST.
I have ordered several compact kits and this one is the best. All items are powders so you don't get powders into creams! Colors are wonderful, size of compact is just right and price is excellant. I wish when they put kits together they will consider keeping creams separate from powders, only way to go. I found other kits too large.
It is a little small and not all the colors work on me. Overall good price and I will keep it.
