This is my first review of the season & I selected the Tarte’s Portable Palette set that is only available at Ulta. The price is $48 which isn’t a lot especially for the amount you get.
So let’s jump into this set!
First up the packaging is adorable. I love the outer packaging with the purple and gold floral design. It pained me to throw it away but I didn’t because I never save packaging. The case is really nice as well!
The packaging is sorta big but I like it and don’t see myself depotting the stuff anytime soon. Maybe down the road. The eye shadows palettes are easy to get out but the lip glosses and mascara you have to pick up the entire plastic thing and pop them out from the bottom!
So this is what your $48 gets you:
3 lipglosses, a travel size light camera flashes mascara, 4 palettes that come with 4 eye shadows and one blush each, and finally a palette to hold your selection of colors for the day!
bottom to top shade Paris, Cannes, and Nice
The lipglosses are deluxe sample sizes with .06 fl oz. each. The colors are Paris which is magenta/raspberry color. Cannes is a light pink color and Nice is a nude color with a touch of pink. Cannes also has a touch of glitter added to it as well. The lip glosses are pretty sticky and thick which tends to make them last longer on the lips. They have a mint smell which made me think it was going to be a plumper but alas it is not. Overall I am not crazy about these glosses but I will use them none the less!
You also get a deluxe sample size (.14 fl. oz.) of Tarte’s famous Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara. This was my first time using this mascara and I maybe in love!
Light coat of Mascara- I did NOT curl my lashes either
I am very impressed! This formula does not clump and the wand also distributes the product nicely. I didn’t think it would curl my lashes at all but it did!!! I am super impressed! I plan to buy a full size bottle.
The On the Go Palette:
With this your suppose to pop your palette in that you are using for the day and go. I like this one better than the one from last year because the color reminds of Tiffany Blue! Haha! Idk how often I Will actually take a palette with me but time will tell. It has a nice size mirror with it as well so you can apply your makeup at work or do some touch ups!
So there are 16 full sized Amazonian Clay Eye Shadows. This formula is so nice and creamy! Like I said before this is my first tarte purchase ever and I am so happy with their products!!!! These eyeshadow have a long wear and the pigmentation is so nice and rich. Each individual palette comes with a color to highlight your brow and then three other colors to do whatever you would like with on the lid.
This set also has 4 full size Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes which I have heard great things about Tarte Blushes so this is a the real reason I bought the set. I loved that the blush selection range from coral to pink to a nude! It’s just a wife selections and again the pigmentation is great!
This set allows you do a completed look just add your foundation and concealer. I wish one of the blushes was replaced with a bronzer though because it would come in handy!
Here is a look done with one of the palettes. The eyeshadows are Champs-Élysées Shopping for brow highlight. Eiffel Tower Engagement for Crease. Secret Soirée for outer lid and lower lash line. Stargazing on the Seine for inner lid! Canned lipgloss on the lips and Lights Camara Flashes Mascara on top and bottom lashes. Then finally the Limitless blush on my cheeks!
So this set is a $410 value and only $48 at Ulta! I totally recommend this set if you have been eyeing tarte products. I wish the lip glosses were their LipSurgence Lip Tints instead but I can make do with these for now!
Has anyone else bought this set? What are your opinions?
