Tartelette Toasted Palette | Review

The Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted Palette was released a couple of months ago. It was first available in the Tarte Cosmetics website, and then it was available at Sephora. Once I heard about the Sephora sale, I decided to wait so I could get a small discount on it. At the time this palette was released, I had been debating getting the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette because I loved the shades. For some reason, I just hadn’t gotten it. I have two other Naked palettes and they just hadn’t wowed me as much as I expected. For my birthday this year, I got the Tarte Tarteist Pro palette and I love the shades, the quality, and the overall composition of the palette. When the Toasted palette was announced, it was a no-brainer.

The Tartelette Toasted palette joins the family of two other Tartelette eyeshadow palettes. I haven’t tried those, but they’ve been raved tons! One is the original Tartelette palette and the other one is the Tartelette in Bloom eyeshadow palette. All three palettes have the same look, the only difference is the actual shades and the design of the packaging.

The Palette

The Tartelette Toasted eyeshadow palette is full of warm-toned shades. It comes with 12 beautiful shades, 7 mattes and 5 shimmers. The Ulta website says that each row of the palette (there are three rows), is set to be each one look. This is great for beginners who are still learning how to put eye looks together! I definitely find it a lot easier when the palette does part of the work for me.

The shades are:

S’more (pinky beige) Flame (metallic rust)
Sunrise (golden beige) Cozy (brick)
Sunset (bronze) Candle (champagne)
Crackle (brown with gold flecks) Latte (tan)
Cashmere (pale peach) Simmer (copper)
Warmth (terracotta) Fireside (deep plum)

The Good

As I mentioned previously, the way the palette is laid out is perfect for beginners. The shades also blend beautifully and look gorgeous on the eyes. If you’ve never tried a Tarte Cosmetics palette then you must know they smell like chocolate. I know scents are not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the way these eyeshadows smell. It isn’t overpowering at all, but if you’re not one for sweet smells, this is not the palette for you. I think this palette is great for everyday, natural looks, but it also has those darker shades and shimmers that can take a natural look into a glam look. I’m currently spending the holidays in Colombia, and this is the only eyeshadow palette I brought with me.

There are multiple reviews out there comparing it to the Urban Decay Naked Heat. I watched the KathleenLights review and that’s what made me decide to go for the Toasted. If you’re in between these two palettes, I recommend you check out some of the reviews and make an informed decision on what will work best for you and your needs!

The Not-So-Good

Some of the shimmery shades in the palette are a bit chunky and hard to work with. I always use my finger when applying them and that works fine for me. Since I am not currently home, I don’t have any Mac Fix+ with me, but I’m sure that works just as good. If you are going to use the shimmery shades, I recommend starting your makeup with your eyes, since there is some fallout and you don’t want to ruin your entire eye look.

There is one shade in the palette I am not too sure about and that is Crackle. This is a dark brown shade with gold glitter… Not really sure what they were thinking, especially because the glitter is quite thick so it looks chunky. To be honest, I haven’t even used this shade so it might be a lot better, but it’s just not a shade that appeals to me.

The Dupe

If you’re unfamiliar with Colourpop Cosmetics, then I must let you know that they’ve been killing the eyeshadow palette game lately. They have so many amazing releases, and one of those is the Double Entendre Eyeshadow Palette. Every time I see this palette on Instagram, I can’t help but think about the Tartelette Toasted palette. The shades are very similar, it also comes with 12 shades, 7 mattes and 5 shimmers. It even has a shade similar to Crackle. Unlike the Tartelette Toasted, this palette retails for $16.00.

All in all, I personally love this palette and would recommend it to anyone who loves these type of shades. If you’re into more cool-toned shadows, then this palette is definitely not the one for you OR if you don’t want to splurge on this one, I think the Colourpop Double Entendre palette is a great alternative!

What’s your favorite eyeshadow palette?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️
Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️
Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
