Tartelette "in bloom" Review & Swatches

Hey guys, today I want to talk about the latest addition to my makeup collection. Tarte's Tartelette 2 in bloom. I've been looking for a matte palette for a while and after a lot of online research and 2 hours in sephora swatching palettes, I decided to get this one.

This palette comes with 12 colors, 9 mattes and 2 shimmers, all neutral colors that work wel in both light and darker skin tones. From nudes to dark browns, this palette has more than enough to create multiple looks. In my opinion this is a better option that the first Tartelette amazonian clay palette.

 i love that all the eyeshadows are very pigmented and easy to blend with each other, but I found that they DO NOT blend as good if you use colors from another palette. Another thing I'm not thrilled about is that the shadows have so much fallout (as you can see in the picture below), specially the shimmery ones. I definitely recommend to do your eyes first when using this. Another thing I like about this palette ishow light the package is and the big mirror it has, both features that make it perfect for traveling.


LEFT, from top to bottom: Firecracker (shimmer), Activist (matte), Funny girl (shimmer), Sweetheart (matte), Rebel (matte), Leader (matte)

RIGHT, from top to bottom : Charmer (matte) , Jetsetter (matte), Rocker (shimmer), Smokeshow (matte), Flower child (matte), Smarty pants (matte)

Overall I think this is a pretty good option if you're looking for a versatile neutral palette. You'll get a good variety of long-lasting eyeshadows, and good color payoff. For $45 I definitely think it worths the money. Buyt if you're not willing to spend that much, or you feel that don't need that many colors the tartelette tease  would be a better option for you.

Double the fun

There are shoes that make a statement. Like I was saying in my last post, when wearing those you can wear the simplest of the outftis and forget about the rest, but sometimes you can double the fun and add and statement accesory to the mix. Lately I'm all about tassel earrings, so I added my favorite ones on this outfit for a pop of color and voila, from plain to fun in just a second.
Hay zapatos que son tan bonitos que, como les decia el otro dia hacen que hasta el mas simple de los conjuntos se vea chic sin esfuerzo. La mayor parte del tiempo yo no combino dos piezas llamativas a la vez , pero esta vez quise agregar un poco de color con estos aretes de flecos y descubri que algunas veces un poco de drama extra nunca le hizo dano a nadie.

One more time

 This past weekend we had two beautiful sunny (but kind of chilly) days in Chicago, so I take advantange of this one of kind autumn situation, by wearing my fringed heels one more time. I kind of regret  wear them more often during the summer. This heels definitely make you feel super chic , even when you're wearing your less favorite jeans, and the most basic buttoned shirt.

What is your current favorite pair of shoes? let me know in a comment below.
El pasado fin de semana Chicago amanecio de buenas y tuvimos dos bonitos (aunque un poco frrescos) dias soleados, asi que aproveche para sacar a pasear una vez mas estas sandalias con flecos que me encantan. Me arrepiento un poquito de no habermelas puesto mas durante el verano. Lo que mas me gusta de estos zapatos, es que pueden hacer que hasta el mas basico de los conjuntos se vea chic sin esfuerzo, y ademas que hacen que me olvide que estoy usando el pantalon de mezclilla que menos me gusta.

Cual es tu par de zapatos favorito? Dejamelo saber en un comentario.

I'm wearing: Heels (less than $50) | celebirty pink jeans / similar | dresslink striped shirt / similar | Nine west bag (sold out) / similar
