Hi my loves!
The company Tarte Cosmetics was sweet enough to send me a bunch of their Spring/Summer 2015 Collection items and let me just say that they are quite amazing!! One of my favorites is this stunning Summer 2015 “Poppy Picnic” Limited-Edition Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette which will retail for CAD$46.00. This palette contains 6 matte eyeshadows and one of their popular 12 hour Amazonian Clay blushes in the shade “Glisten” (You can buy it separately for USD$26.00) I was honestly soo impressed with the quality and pigmentation of this palette! Let me tell you, you will not be dissapointed. The shades go on like BUTTER! The shadows are all neutral which I personally like because you can wear them every day.
How adorable is this packaging??
The palette itself is just stunning. So “Summery” and just bright and beautiful. I love the gold and pink/purple. It’s a sleek palette and feels well made (nice and sturdy) which is perfect for travelling.
The names of the shadows and blush are written on a transparent piece of plastic that is on top of the shadows/blush. I would have preferred if the names were written directly on the palette because I always end up losing the plastic somewhere. Other than that this palette is truly perfection.
The blush is the size of one of their individual Amazonian Clay blushes which is really nice. The shadows are also in a big pan which is always a plus.
Here are the swatches of the shadows and blush. No primer was used.

As you can see the shadows are extremely pigmented. I was surprised at how easily they glided on and how smooth and pigmented they were. I’m such a fan. The blush is a beautiful peachy pink with golden shimmer throughout which will add the perfect flushed glow. Overall I am really impressed with this palette and totally recommend it. I’m not sure when exactly this collection will be released but I know it’s for the Summer 2015 so stay tuned loves! Hope you liked this sneak peek ❤ Let me know what you think!
