A221860 - tarte Amazonian Clay Romancing the Glow Face Palette
Make palette changeable
Love this palette for traveling, perfect size, not so much for my purse though. The bronze is very nice, but the blush is too bright so I have to be careful not to put too much on (I have medium skin). The eye shadows are soft and good staying power but not a big fan of the colors in this palette--wouild love to be able to switch them out to gold, pink and grape tones as well. I have a mix of hazel and very light brown eyes, and these shadows do nothing for my eye color. Also, this would be much less of an imprint in our landfills. Please bring this up to management. Thank you.
MY SECOND TARTE PURCHASE IS FAVORABLE...
...As I thought -- CLAY? But I wanted to experience for myself what the positive reviewers were happy with... so, I first invested in the tarte Holiday Lip Surgence Collection (A229185) which met with complete satisfaction. Along came the arrival of the Glow Face Palette and I LOVE IT! It meets my every standard desire for quality, varied color availability, and my ability to try four categories of tarte products all inclusive in one compact. I am pleasingly impressed with the following: the formulations of the shadows apply smoothly without pulling on my eyelids with colors that please my skin tones (but I say each will go with all skin tones); love the shimmers, the depth of neutral colors which I can apply lightly or more intensely as I choose; the Blush does last for the amount of hours promoted and kisses my cheeks with a hint of gold-in-pink; and last but not least I am really impressed with the Bronzer in a shimmer shade, plus the Shimmering Powder -- again perfection enhanced by depth-impact as I desire. I would have liked the inclusion of a few small brushes but that is minor for I use a collection already at-hand. The overall look of my facial derma is an enhanced, soft shimmer, light luminescence and pearlescent appearance. After all, Clay Masks at spas have been touted over centuries of civilization, especially with the 'rich and famous'. So -- now I am one of the latter. :-) I thank you, Maureen, for the opportunity to experience your development and expertise in a revolutionary concept of this decade's use of Clay and extend best wishes for continued success! P.S. I look forward to seeing a trial-kit of your other clay products as my curiosity has been highly peaked.
No oompa loompa orange but there is some little girl glitter. That is why I am giving this a 4 instead of a 5. I need to brush off the loose glitter from my face after I use the light pink eyeshadow. The blush isn't all that bad, but that pink eyeshadow snows glitter when you use it. Please make this palette without the glitter and I will buy it again. Until then, I will use a large brush and while I am blending, brush off the glitter. No big deal, it falls off anyway. The colors are just wonderful.
Bottom line the shimmer was overwhelming. I enjoy tarte, however this palette is grainy and powdery. Had to go back!
I just received this product and it is beautiful. Reading other reviews really helps when you are unsure about a product as I was. Although one reader said she did n't like the compact/color etc, I thought it was beautiful and very American Indian-like. The eye colors of the compact are perfect as is the blush. It would be nice to have had it come with brushes, but I had some so I made it work. Another thing about it is it is perfect for traveling. Everything is in one compact. It's just perfect! This was my first TARTE purchase, but definately won't be my last!! Thanks:-)
Love this color palette !!!!
I love this color palette I just wish it had come with a lip product.
I adore Tarte and own many Tarte cosmetics. I don't mind a little 'sparkle'', but this one is just not flattering. It has sparkle in the blush, all the eyeshadows and the highlighter.
It looks nice inside, with a light hand, but look in a mirror outside...yikes, it is just too clownlike on someone like myself with very fair skin.
This might look very nice on someone younger with darker skin tone and/or who tans.
The brown shadows all look pretty similar on. The lighter ones are just too full of sparkle, the darker shades look alike. Blush is just too dark pink for my complexion, makes me look like I have a rash.
The bronzer is nice and fairly matte.
The compact itself is just awkward and heavy. I took it on a trip recently and it took up way too much room for what it holds. The fake turquoise on the outside/fake wood look is really pretty but just too heavy and is difficult to open.
It's all very pretty to look at, the concept is great, just didn't work for me.
Stays put ALL day!
Love the bronzer, shadows and highlighter. I put this on at 6:30am before work. Spend all day on my feet (sweaty)then get it my car at 330pm and was shocked to see it all still there! The blush is a great color but has little gold squares in it. I skip the blush. Great compact! HUGE with mirror. Whats with the big blue chunky fake rock on it? Id rather not pay for that. I am loving TARTE frankly because it stays on all day and doesnt make me itchy.
Best compact set
Thia set is amazing! I love how it is an all-in-one and it is pefect for traveling, which is what I purchased it for. The packing is beautiful and stores easily. I didn't have a problem with opening it like others have but I really like how you can feel it close so it doesn't open while in travel. I have blue eyes and the colors really make my eyes pop and they are all really blendable. I get so many compliments when I use it. I also really love the turquoise which is such a pretty shade and really makes your eyes stand out. The blush is pretty and can be worn with anything and everyday. It's a little scary when you look at it due to the glitter but once applied you can really see it. It makes your skin look like it is glowing and stays on all day. The bronzer and highlight are also nice to have in this kit. I loved the bronzer, so I bought it in full size. Overall great products like always and for the price you can't beat it. You get 6 shadows, blush, highlight and bronzer all-in-one, oh and don't forget the cute package, very nice.
Sent it Back
I love a lot of Tarte products and was looking forward to this but it disappointed me. Many of the items were flaky and glittery. Nothing stood out as special or worth it for me. I have fair skin and the browns didn't work for me. They were too bronze-y. The compact was pretty and convenient.
Too much talc!!
The shadow fluffed off of my brush and landed under my eyes. My assumption is too much talc which really shocked me coming from Tarte. Also the blush had giant chunks of glitter that looked TERRIBLE. The highlighter was lovely....but not worth the price of the kit. Back it went which is sad because I had such high hopes.
Deserves 10 *'s
Best concept ever. Thanks Maureen! These types of compacts were popular a few years ago and disappeared. I was thrilled to see Tarte bring them back. This is a must for travel and purse. The colors can be mixed for soft or depth of shade. Please consider keeping this in the line with several color variations. It is the absolute best. I got two and I am verry pleased.
