Get It or Forget It?: Tarte Toasted Palette

Welcome back, Beauties! In today’s Get It or Forget It, I’ll be giving you all the deets and my thoughts on the new Tarte Tartelette Toasted palette. 

Tarte recently joined the warm shadow trend by releasing the third palette in their Tartelette series, the Toasted palette. It’s available on the Tarte website, and in Ulta stores/online. If you’re like me, you enjoy the Tartelette formula and performance. Out of all of the Tarte eyeshadow formulas, the Tartelette is definitely my favorite. Traditionally, the shadows are smooth, pigmented and blend easily.

Before I purchased this palette, I watched a few reviews and checked out some looks on The Gram. I only saw one negative review, so I figured I’d take the plunge and add this to my ever-growing palette collection.

I’ve used this palette about four times now, and I think I have a pretty good idea of how I feel about it. Before we get into that, let’s take a look at some swatches. As always, I swatched these with my finger and no primer.


Shades shown (from left to right): Crackle, Flame, Candle, Fireside, and Cozy)

As you can see, these shadows have great pigmentation. The only one that didn’t swatch the way I would’ve liked was Cozy, but it performs well on the eyes. As we all know, swatches don’t always tell the story about eyeshadows. I found that these shadows apply and blend nicely on the eyes with minimal fallout. I did get a little kickup in the pan, but not any more than you typically find with Tarte shadows.

I did find the mattes to be slightly more dry than the other Tartelette palette that I have, the In Bloom (my holy grail Tarte palette), but I don’t always mind that as long as the shadows perform well. Although they’re a little dry, they are still pigmented and blendable, which is always the goal. The shimmers had a little fallout on the face, but if you go in with a wet brush, that should take care of it.

So, is this palette Regular Girl Approved? MOST DEFINITELY!! You guys, I totally think you should Get It. If you’re a fan of warm eyeshadow palettes and want to create a variety of looks, definitely pick this up. It’s legit awesome. I’m so glad I decided to get it.

Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
