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?

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼
Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼
Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!
@sephora @saturday_skin #sephora #saturdayskin #OctolyFamily
  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.

Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
