TRIED & TESTED: Tarte – Tartelette In Bloom

Dang, this one has been a long time coming. I got Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom for my 25 birthday – I’m now 26. Nevertheless, this eyeshadow palette holds a special place in my heart. Read on to find out why.

There once was a beauty enthusiast turning 25, wanting to get her hands on Tarte’s beautiful Tartelette In Bloom eyeshadow palette. She swiftly sent the URL to her boyfriend and so it began.

I’m big on beauty but I’m bigger on pug jokes.

I’m also big on my boyfriend since he’s a perfect listener when it comes to presents and tah-dahhh the Tartelette In Bloom palette was mine.

I had compared a few Tarte eyeshadow palettes but ended up with Tartelette In Bloom since it has the perfect mix of warm-toned neutral shades with just the right amount of glamour. Plus, the packaging is beaut.

But it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Not gonna lie, I opened up this up and felt an instant rush of panic that quickly made way for complete exhilaration as I read the word ‘pug’. The man did an A+ job.

And so the 25-year-old beauty enthusiast was surprised with the pug and the palette. But since you’re here for the latter, let’s get back to beauty.

The product

Tarte describes Tartelette In Bloom as an ‘easy-to-use cult-favorite eyeshadow palette with 12 brightening matte & microshimmer shades that will become your everyday essentials‘. A description that sounded right up my alley. The packaging comes with a big-ass mirror, making it equal parts beautiful and practical.

I love how each shadow has its own name. Another plus? The palette smells absolutely divine, somewhat chocolatey, adding to its indulgent vibe.

It also comes with a dual-ended brush that is ideal for applying and blending. It’s a great quality brush, but if you’re like me and you store your brushes upright, it’s a tiny pain in the ass.

The review

FLTR: Charmer, Jetsetter, Rocker and Smokeshow. I like Jetsetter and Smokeshow for the crease, while Rocker is great to use all over the lid and Charmer works well as an inner-corner highlight.

Next up: Flower Child, Smarty Pants, Firecracker and Activist. Flower Child is good to use all over the lid as a base, while Smarty Pants is a nice color to subtly add depth to the crease. Firecracker is the sparkliest one of the bunch, but while it swatches nicely, I find that it’s a bit too chunky and I end up with fall-out all over my cheeks. Activist is a pretty liner color.

The last four are Funny Girl, Sweetheart, Rebel and Leader. I love the balance between matte and shimmery and I find that these four look well together when you want a more romantic date-night kinda look.

You can go ahead and call me a bad blogger here ‘cause I took these pictures a year ago and I have no clue which exact shades I used. ‘Scusi.

But usually, I go for a lighter brown in the crease, a darker shade in the outer crease, a shimmering color across the lid and a darker brown/black as a smoked-out liner. Either way, they’re all in there.

The price

Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom retails for € 42 and it’s safe to say it’s one of my favorite gifts ever.

As for the pug? It just turned one.
