Product Review: Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eye-shadow Palette

Hi Everyone!
How are you doing?

I’m back with a eyeshadow review!

Did you guys miss me?
Please bear with me because I’m in the midst of switching jobs so there are a lot of things to do

Today’s review with feature the…

Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette!

Good gawd these cosmetics companies are really extending their products names
Soon products will be named like this:

(Insert brand name) Perfect Nourish and Protect Barbarian Ceramide Veloquisha Fushitiha Lovely Chocolate Matte But Shimmery Face and Eyes Palette

Get my point?

I got this for RM 175

Embrace you inner tartelette with this all matte palette featuring 12 exclusive Amazonian Clay eyeshadow inspired by real women just like you

First of all

Only a woman can use makeup is it?

How do they learn to write to flowery english?
Do they just randomly pick bombastic words and piece them together

My inner tartelette?
I can only think of the pineapple tarts that I ate during Chinese New Year


The eyeshadows are formulated without: parabens, mineral oil, phthalates (how do you say this word?), triclosan, SLS, gluten

Oh well
Why not make it vegan, cruelty free and talc free while you’re at it?

Well lookie there!
There is talc! So I guess there isn’t much to change after all

I’m kidding

The Eyeshadow Palette comes with a leaflet to teach you how to use these colors
Bear in mind that makeup is a form of individual expression and this leaflet is merely for guidance

There are 12 shadows in total and all are matte
I like that they include the names on the packaging itself and not on a piece of plastic

I’m looking at you Tarte beMattenificent Palette!

This time the palette doesn’t come with a brush so you would have to either use your fingers or your own brushes

This is a swatch of all the shades
I only swatched them ONCE and the pigment is quite good
Not the best but still good

It is not too creamy or flaky and feels like clay
It blends easily and doesn’t feel gritty

So I did a simple eyeshadow look
(Because I am a guy)
And I wore this to work

The eyeshadow lasted on me for 4 hours before it creased
I did not wear an eyeshadow primer with this and just applied it as it is

Considering there was no eyeshadow primer
It is really good for its wear time and creasability (if that’s even a word)

I recommend this palette to those who want an everyday neutral eyeshadow palette. For those who don’t like matte shades, don’t waste your time.


That’s all for today

Evan Chang
