Hi my lovelies,

Today i will be reviewing one of the most talked about eyeshadow palette in the makeup community (drum rolls) ..The Tartelette In Bloom Palette by Tarte Cosmetics. Due to its unavailability in India, I had to ask one of the friends in the US to bring it for me. Because of all the good stuff I heard about this palette I had to get my hand on it. Lets see if its worth the hype.

The Product

The Packaging

Lets face it, the palette looks gorgeous !
Comes in a flip open package. The outside has shades of pink and blue with golden letters and the inside is a beautiful gold which gives it a very elegant look. Its a 4″ * 3″ (approx) compact palette and is very sturdy. Comes with a good quality mirror.

My Take on The Tartelette In Bloom Palette

This palette is always sit on top of my vanity with my other favourite, a palette I always reach for. But I’m not a fan of all the shades ! Some shades just dint work for me quality wise. The palette does not have a unique selection of shades but the ratio of shimmer shadows and matte shadows is hands down the best. I love the quality of most shadows in this palette and so obsessed with the shades but the quality of a couple / three of them is a big no no. I have mentioned below my favourites and the ones I did not love as much as the others.

Swatches & Ingredients

TOP ROW :

charmer
Ingredients: Talc, mica, silica, zinc stearate, boron nitride, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

As you can see Charmer has a very poor colour payoff, I tried using it with the Mac Prep & Prime Makeup Setting Spray (it worked) but over all it was quite powdery and faded off.

jetsetter
Ingredients: Talc, mica, zinc stearate, boron nitride, ethylhexyl palmitate, silica, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742), titanium dioxide (CI 77891).

A very beautiful cool toned Brown, makes a perfect crease colour specially if you want to create a smokey eye look. Quite pigmented and the texture is buttery smooth.

rocker
Ingredients: Talc, mica, ethylhexyl palmitate, zinc stearate, boron nitride, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, silica, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742), bismuth oxychloride (CI 77163), ferric ferrocyanide (CI 77510).

Rocker really stands out in the top row, its a gorgeous cool toned Brown, has a buttery smooth texture and blends like a dream.

smokeshow
Ingredients: Talc, mica, zinc stearate, silica, boron nitride, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ultramarines (CI 77007).

I am just going to say that there are better black/grey eyeshadows out there. I had to go over it 3 times to make the colour pop. Though it is not at all powdery,its not intense either. If Tarte intended to keep it light so that it blends better then they definitely failed to please me with this one. If there is a dark or a black shadow in the palette, I expect it to be super intense with a high colour pay off.

MIDDLE ROW :

flower child
Ingredients: Talc, mica, silica, zinc stearate, boron nitride, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ultramarines (CI 77007), manganese violet (CI 77742).

I was also quite disappointed with this one, it showed up only when used with a setting spray. Powdery,fades off easily and quite a bit of fallout with this one.

smarty pants
Ingredients: Talc, mica, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, manganese violet (CI 77742), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

A beautiful warm toned brown that can be used on the lip as well as the crease. Smooth texture and blends well. The only fallback with this one is that there was quite a bit of fallout while applying with a brush.

firecracker
Ingredients: Mica, talc, ethylhexyl palmitate, zinc stearate, boron nitride, silica, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, copper powder (CI 77400), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), titanium dioxide (CI 77891).

I love this eyeshadow, its a gorgeous,shimmery warm toned brown. Its so intense and shimmery, almost like a foiled eyeshadow. I love how it looks on the lid as well as the crease. It goes on smooth and blends well.

activist
Ingredients: Talc, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742), ultramarines (CI 77007).

Activist is a tad bit darker than smokeshow, its black and has a better color payoff. Its warm but not as intense as I would like it to be but if used with Mac Prep & Prime Spray it can be worked with.

BOTTOM ROW :

funny girl
Ingredients: Mica, ethylhexyl palmitate, talc, zinc stearate, boron nitride, silica, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, tin oxide, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77499).

A very pretty rose gold color. Its the sparkliest of them all but lacks pigment. Its very light but sits beautifully on the lid. I love this color because it looks very pretty if you are going for a nude or neutral eye look. I like to use it on the lid, inner corners of the eyes and the brow bone.

sweetheart
Ingredients: Talc, mica, silica, zinc stearate, boron nitride, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), manganese violet (CI 77742), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ultramarines (CI 77007).

Its my favourite eyeshadow from the palette and I use it a lot. Sweetheart is a very subtle and rosy pink and makes a very pretty transition shade. Its buttery smooth and blends out seamlessly.

rebel
Ingredients: Talc, silica, boron nitride, zinc stearate, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742), ultramarines (CI 77007).

This one is a neutral brown. a perfect crease color. Its buttery in texture and has intense pigments that blend easily. Its a beautiful shade and also one of my favourites from the palette.

leader
Ingredients: Silica, zinc stearate, boron nitride, talc, ethylhexyl palmitate, sodium dehydroacetate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, vanillin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, hexylene glycol, vanilla planifolia fruit extract, kaolin, carmine (CI 75470), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), manganese violet (CI 77742), ultramarines (CI 77007).

As the name suggested its the leader, not in texture but in the pigmentation. Its the most intense crease color of them all and has the least amount of fallout compared to smokeshow and activist.
