Tarte's Puttin' On The Glitz is Snappy!

Last week, when I was on my own personal Amazing Race, I told you about my Tarte Eyeshadow palette from the Puttin' On the Glitz Collection and how pretty the colors were. I promised you pictures and swatches, sorry it took me a few days longer.  If you aren't familiar with this collection, here are the basics. It comes with a cute gold and silver clutch, which has snaps, so you can attach your choice of three palettes. Each palette comes with six shadows and either a blush, contour/bronzer or highlighter. It even comes with a little book of inspiration if you need help putting together some looks.

So without further ado, check it out. Are you going to be adding this to your collection? I think the colors are pretty, it offers a great value and the clutch is totally workable. (And if you were inclined to need shadow touch ups very late or very early, this is the perfect secret weapon, if you add a little brush.)

Take a look at the colors!

Thoughts? I love how Tarte shadows wear, so I don't really need an excuse to want more of them, but I it never hurts....

  1. Thanks for the nice words! I'm happy to help! First of all, adding a smoky liner will take any of these looks to a new level. Try lining the inner rim of your eye with a soft kohl pencil for serious nighttime look. Don't worry about being precise! Use your fingers and smudge it into your lashline after you've applied with the pencil.

    For the Purple "Girl's Night Out Palette": Make the most of the darker colors! Start with a swath of the black liner shadow, across the bottom half of your lower lid. Next, apply a swath of the matte purple over the top half of the lower lid, making the two colors come together to make the outer "V". Then, depending on how dark you want to go, lightly dust on either the shimmery gray or purple. Follow up by a little pop of the lightest color in the center of your eyeball. Use the highlighter color to soften out the edge of the dark purple, just below your brow bone.

    For the Green "A Walk In the Park", keep it easy. Use a firm, flat brush to apply the green shade to your eye lid, below the crease. Take an angled brush, dampen it with whatever mixing medium you like. (I prefer moisturizing eye drops) and take a firm angled brush and use the bronze color to create a cat's eye line. The two shimmers together will add an unexpected pop. Want to go further? Use the matte brown shadow to make a second line extending from the lower lash line.

    For the Neutral "Nine to Five", use the pinky quartz color on the lid. Use
    the matte, light stone color as the crease. Add a dramatic black liner and
    wispy lashes for more of a good-girl-gone-bad-bedroom look!

    I hope this helps!
