What’s going on, Beauties? Today, we are going to discuss the highlights of two palettes from one of my favorite brands and decide which one is worth your coins.
You guys know that I have a thing for Tarte Cosmetics. They’re one of the first high end brands that I started using and make some of my holy grail products. That being said, my admiration for the brand won’t sway me when it comes to letting you know which of these palettes are worth the money in MY opinion.
Now that we’re on the same page about what’s going down today, let’s get into it!
The Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette, $46 (currently $23 at Ulta), and the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette, $46, are fairly similar upon first glance. However, one of these far surpasses the other for me when it comes to performance and value.
If you’ll recall, I told you guys in my Brand of the Week: Tarte Cosmetics post a while back, I love the Clay Play Face Palette. It’s such a versatile product. All of the powders in it can be used on the eyes, brows and face. Who doesn’t love only needing to use one palette when getting ready?! I also said in that post that I’m not much of a contouring girl, so I use all of the powders as eyeshadows. I can say that, since that post, I’ve used the deepest shade in this palette to bronze, and I liked it. It blended well and actually showed up on my skin without looking weird.
Now, when the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette came out, I confess that I picked it up because of the packaging. Look, don’t act like it’s never happened to you. I don’t need your judgement lmao. Anywho, I didn’t expect there to be a shade for me to contour with from the pictures I’d seen, but figured I’d give it a shot for bronzing since I just had to have it smh. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it. When I used the deepest shade, the undertone was off on my skin. It came off a little muddy and more reddish than I prefer. I just wasn’t into anything in the palette. I can probably use it as eyeshadow, but I’m just not motivated to use it at all, which sucks because I spent almost $50 on it.
So, needless to say, I think that your money is best spent on the Clay Play Face Palette if you’re trying to decide which one of these to get. The quality is better and it’s a much more versatile product. Plus, it’s on sale right now and you can’t beat the value.
Have you guys tried these palettes? If so, which do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below.
Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
