Multi Purpose Palettes: Tarte Cosmetics (Ladies Night Eye and Cheek, Goddess and Glam)

Ladies Night Eye and Cheek Palette

I love palettes that are "all in one" type palettes, and I purchased two palettes from Tarte around the holidays. These types of palettes are great when traveling, or when I'm in a hurry to get ready for work. The Ladies Night Eye and Cheek Palette has a blush, bronzer, highlighter and 6 eyeshadow in the palette. I also picked up the Goddess and Glam Eye and Cheek set which again has 6 eye shadows, a blush and highlighter. Both of these palettes are nice, but not favorites of mine. I realized I'm not a huge fan of Tarte's eyeshadow formula. The permanent palettes like the Toasted, and Bloom have a very different formula. The shimmers in these palettes are not that vibrant which is something that I go for. Even spraying them with  a setting spray, gives me an "okay" shimmer. Both blushes in these palettes are really nice, and my favorite part of these palettes. The face products are much better than the eyeshadows.

I don't think I will be picking up any Tarte Limited Edition palettes anymore. I also noticed they don't have a great staying power on my lids, including the mattes. By the end of the day, they really fade away. These palettes are good for travel or for throwing in an overnight bag. I will get a nice look but if I'm looking for a night out or a special occasion, I will look for a palette with better lasting power. The shimmers in the Goddess Glam palette are actually difficult to pick up with a brush, they seem pressed harder into the pan. I would prefer a Morphe palette over these two any day. I do prefer the Ladies Night Eye and Cheek palette over the Goddess Glam palette. I will keep my eye out for other "all in one" palettes. I do like having them in my collection.

  3. I love their permanent palettes. I've struggled with their round ones for some reason. But love the smaller ones you can get at ULTA.

  4. I have never tried it but have heard that the holiday/limited edition palettes eyeshadow formulas are different and are not liked by many. The colors of the eyeshadows are tempting though. :-)

  5. That is a pretty palette! Sorry to hear that it's not pigmented though...I hate that. I have the Tartelette in Bloom and while it is gorgeous, it's not really my favorite.

  14. It's a shame about the eyeshadows! I found the same too with some face and eye palettes, I think they assume people won't be too bothered if the quality isn't on par, but sometimes there is such a big difference! I got an Estee Lauder eye palette in a set and the eyeshadows had no colour payoff really x
