Tarte True Blood Look and Review

Edgy, original, fun, and creative! This palette is so unique compared to other palettes- with its vinyl corset laced packaging and blood red lipstain, this collection screams True Blood.
This palette comes with:

  • 17 eyeshadows
  • Black gel eyeliner pencil
  • sample size mascara
  • sample size eye primer

I have been a Tarte fan for quite awhile as I love how they use more natural ingredients (great for those of us with sensitive skin!) I especially love this palette as the texture of the eyeshadows is smooth, richly pigmented, and easy to blend with the exception of a few glittery ones that I had too much fallout with.

The best feature is the mixture of finishes- there’s several matte finish eyeshadows as well as shimmery. This definitely is a fall colors palette as many of the colors are dark, but you can create some gorgeous dark smoky eyes with this kit. My only complaint is that some of the eyeshadows crumbled a bit when I tried to apply- mostly the shimmery ones, but the matte finish ones especially were very smooth. I also love Tarte’s mascara and eye primer- my favorite ones at the moment.

This packaging is SO creative and cute! I love the corset laced top, the logo with “Open after Dark”, and the embossed design inside- amazing quality too! It doesn’t feel cheap like some other palettes.
