Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette With Review, Swatches & Video

Whenever I go to New York, I want to visit Park Avenue...Madison Avenue etc! But for right now, I will have to settle for Tarte's Park Avenue Princess Palette (not sponsored). This palette contains a bronzer, blush and highlighter. I show a brush in the pictures below, but it's sold separately. It's called the Tarte bronze and glow contour brush. Tarte wants you to contour with the bronzer. I haven't attempted to contour yet, so I simply used it as a bronzer. Tarte describes the blush as pink. But to me it's lilac. Maybe it's a pink lilac :) The highlighter is a champagne gold. All are very pigmented. All create a soft & beautiful look. I'll be using this palette all Summer. Can this be duped? SURE! Pick your favorite bronzer & highlighter, then add a lilac blush (that might be the part that's a little more challenging ... not all lilacs are the same). This is a pretty one. I love the brush I used, but the big poofy end is better for blending everything. Use a regular blush brush to apply the blush or risk (like I did in the video) having blush go all the way up your eye. Which is a makeup faux pas! HaHaHa  When you purchase new "tools" (brushes), they take getting used to. I'm working on it. On another note, I just found out that Ebates is celebrating it's16th birthday! What does that mean? Well, Macy's, Ulta and some other great stores are offering 16% CASH BACK on purchases from May 11th - 18th. That's HUGE! Sometimes... if you're lucky, you get 6-8% cash back and that's it. Soooo my park avenue princesses, shop your little hearts out ... to get all that cash back. Here's my link, if you would like to join Ebates. Have a good one!

Ughhh I LOVE Tarte. I'm forever upset they don't sell it in Belgium and it doesn't even ship here. Or not that I know off.

The palette is beautiful and you look stunning!

Candice Petersen said...

These are so pretty!! I like the doubled sided brush

16% cash back?!?! that's awesome!! i use a bronzer to contour until i can find a nice brown.

Mica T said...

That looks like a really cute set Kim!

Makeup brushes are so tricky to use, to me anyway, to figure out the right ones...I've got my usual ones I go-to now and I won't vary from that haha! :)

You always look great in these vids, Kim:) And I contour with bronzer all the time. It really works! :D

Have a good day, my dear!

I have not seen or heard of this palette yet! I need to get to Ulta stat. You have given me about 100 new products to look for latley haha

Shireen L. Platt said...

I am LOVING your Tarte week/month, Kim and this is another great review on a really pretty looking product. And LOL to blusher straight up to the eye. We've all been there once or twice in our makeup lifetime. Haha! I'm loving that you're doing more videos, Kim and hopefully one day, we'll get to hear you talk too. xx

I think that lilac blush is probably the selling feature of this palette - I've never seen a blush shade like it! All mixed together, this palette gave you an utterly gorgeous finish, Kim. I love it!

Lorena said...

What a fab packaging, its thin and looks so luxe, perfect for taking in my small and tight make up bag.

Layla Sprinkles said...

Tarte really do have some amazing products - they're a brand that I don't think gets enough hype as they should!

I've used a few of their products and love them! :)

Look gorgeous as always Kim!

Thanks for the brush tip with regard to bronzer, this is all still so new to me haha! I'm glad you're happy with this and wow 16% cash back really is so impressive. Right now I'm definitely not being as sensible as I could be when purchasing cosmetics, I'll have to look into more cost-effective ways of shopping for beauty products! :)

I really like the packaging on this and the colors wear really pretty on you Kim. The double ended brush is really cool too but I just wonder how would you store it so both sides stay clean.

I love the Park Ave Princess bronzer! I have the limited edition palette that they released around the holidays. The blush and highlighter are slightly different from this one. The blush is more of a muted rose color, and the highlighter has more of a pinkish undertone to it. I love the lilac blush, though. You make me want to get this one too!

So cute! And I love the idea of the 2-in-1 brushes. So smart!

Ashley said...

I'm so glad you like this palette Kim!
I've had my eye on it, but the park ave princess
Bronzer doesnt look good with my skin tone :(
The blush and highlight is beautiful on you,
Your glowing!!! I'm excited to see the video later!

Stripes n Vibes said...

Ok I'm felling more and more in love with Tarte cosmetics - this palette is really good!


jo said...

Hey Kim, I really like this new post + video! Love the tutorial. I never really used contour but I just bought one from Make Up For Ever and I love it! Btw, that looks lilac to me too. :)

xo Jo


Lizzy Fresh said...

Glad you're liking this! I've always wanted to try the bronzer out but the palette is such a beauty so I may have to go with it instead haha. After all, why buy 1 product when you can get 3 ;P


Pilar said...

That's great you like the palette! The blush is a really color and skin is glowing!

Diva Desle said...

Loved the video Kim. This palette would be perfect for travel. I hardley contour and bronze my face but the blush and highlighter would be perfect for me;-)


So in love with that glamorous pallette! The packaging is so beautiful, perfect for my bath room... Haha! ;-)


Layla Sprinkles said...

Oooh these look very pretty too!!! Tarte is a great brand and it's a shame they don't get as much hype as they should!!

I've used a couple of their products and have a few more to review and love them all! :)

Great review Kim and I really need to give Tarte another chance after reading this. I always went to Nars or MAC for blush or bronzer and never really tested other brands, but this has a really soft beautiful glow to it and the brush looks like such good quality. Thank you for posting the pics at different angles. You look so pretty and sunkissed!


Stephanie G said...

I love Tarte and enjoyed the review :) One of my fave blushers are from Tarte but I love that this comes with a bronzer!

Angela Landskron said...

The name of this palette is the best! Also, I love how the dual-ended brush that you are supposed to use with it looks. I just want to sweep it all over my face!

Jane said...

i love that double ended brush! and you look great kim! :)
