Tarte Tartelette Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos & Swatches

Tarte Tartelette Palette

When I first got a glimpse of Tarte Cosmetics‘ newest palette, Tartelette ($44), I knew I had to have it. I have tons of neutral matte eyeshadow palettes but something about this one spoke to me.

Tarte’s newest palette features 12 exclusive all-matte eyeshadows infused with their signature Amazonian clay. Each eyeshadow is named to inspire, celebrate and empower women (I think the eyeshadow names are what spoke to me). The palette also comes with a step-by-step guide for creating a daytime and a nighttime look using the shadows. I actually wish Tarte included a step-by-step guide for four looks instead of two. I don’t think their daytime guide was very practical, most women are not going to wear a plum eye makeup look with purple liner during the day.

While baking soda helps combat grease and body oils while neutralizing sweaty odors, the vinegar kills off any bacteria lingering in your clothes. Together, they will leave your clothes looking clean and smelling fresh.

There are several ways of using this power duo on your clothing, here are my three fool-proof ways.
