Tarte Tarteist Makeup By Shayla Contour Palette Review and Swatches

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Tarte came out with a contour palette the beginning of this year. I purchased and never opened it. Mid-year, they collaborated with YouTuber Makeup by Shayla on a contour palette designed specifically for darker skin tones. Initially when I saw it, I thought it was going to be too dark for me. But let me tell you! All the Caucasian girls on Tarte's snapchat started using it and the shades rocked on them!!! Then I saw GlamTrashMakeup (I think she's spanish) do a tutorial using it and it rocked on her. So I sold my original palette and purchased this one. You get a beautiful soft champagne gold highlighter (it SHINES), a pretty peachy-pink blush that warms the cheeks, a yellow corrector for under the eyes, two contour shades and a shimmering bronzing powder. I contoured (using the lighter brown) around my face and my nose (all the way to my eyebrows). I applied the blush to my cheeks. I highlighted the bridge of my nose, under my eyebrows, and atop the blush. I used the yellow correcting powder under my eyes and it really brightened that area. I don't know if some of you have heard of banana powder (Ben Nye), but this is what it's similar to. You apply and then dust off! I've never tried this before, but I like the effect. I think I used a little too much, because I was a little more yellow under my eyes then I wanted to be (but I'm learning). I didn't use the darkest contour shade, because it would be too dark for me, but I noticed Shayla did say these could be used as eyeshadows. So I may try that. And I didn't use the shimmering bronzing powder. It's so gorgeous though! But I thought I was glowing enough. SO SORRY for the dark pictures! I applied my makeup. Got on Snapchat! Then I looked up and it was dark & stormy! We're suppose to have bad weather here until the weekend. Never good for picture taking. But you can kind of see the colors and wonderful glow this palette gave me. I'm so glad I purchased it! On my lips ... I stuck with Tarte ... I'm wearing Tarte's SASS lipstick+gloss lip sculptor. When I saw these pictures, I immediately thought of Bobbi Browns Sandy Nude Collection I purchased last year. Although similar, I think this is richer. I've never watched one Shayla video HaHaHa but she did a really good job with this palette. It's limited edition, but still available at Ulta, Sephora and Tarte. I have one more product from Tarte to review (their new blushes).

This is the Snapchat filter I kept messing around with and when I looked up it got dark & rainy. 
I would be great as a character! LOL

I have not heard of banana powder before, but this one looks great on you, Kim! I hope other women with lighter skin colors get to read this. It looks like a one color fits most here.

This looks gorgeous on you, Kim! I love that tarte has contour products for darker skin tones. I really like the blush shade. It's very flattering!

First I scrolled down to see the pictures and then I returned to read and I have to say that the moment I saw your pics I said: SUPERSWEET rating - and I was not wrong. Very pretty Kim.

Gosh Kim I think this has to be one of my fave makeup looks on you. So fresh, glowy and beautiful! The contour gives your face some added definition but still appears so natural! Love! Love! Your photos turned out more than fine with the dim light cause you're totally glowing girl :)

Ashley Sue said...

This palette is so pretty, and everything looks beautiful on you Kim! I would use them as eyeshadows too lol! Especially that dark brown shade, it would make a great shadow to darken up eye looks! I love the highlight and then shimmery bronze shade, those are stunning!

The packaging is so lovely + whimsical!

The Tarte palette looks so pretty. The colours are so romantic. You're having fun doing those snapshots.

I actually don't buy contour palettes. I prefer buying them my contour, blush, and highlighter separately but this one looks so nice that I'm tempted to try it out! Hope you're having an amazing week. Stay pretty! :)

I saw this palette and it looks really nice! I like the colors and agree that they look like they would work nicely as shadows too. You look so pretty and glowing in the pics! Great review Kim!

I don't watch her Snapchat, but I hear she is always using it for eyeshadow. That is pretty cool actually.
I think it would work well with my skin, honestly :)

kim!!! you look beautiful!!! i love it and would love to try myself but i think contouring is a bit too overwhelming for a noob like me :) one day though - love the way these shades look on you!

Diva Desle said...

YES, YES, YES for this Tarte palette. I would love to travel with that. It looks great on you Kim. I love that snapchat filter too. It's too cute.

FASHION TALES said...

Love your photos Kim, and actually think this is a lovely palette. I've not mastered contouring, but I do use Ben Nye's banana powder, and I also bought Sacha Costmetics powder which is very similar to it. P.S. Hope you're okay wherever you are, I heard about some flooding in Louisiana and thought of you. x/Madison
