Review

The packaging is classy and chic. The shadows look beautiful on the pan, especially when worn on. However, since it is matte, it may not blend well on all types of skin; it works best on fair skin tones. The colors last up to a minimum of seven, and a maximum of eight. Plus, the packaging indicates that its shelf life is up to 12 months, but it’s alright to keep it for a few more months but not longer than six months. When applied, the shadows feel soft and quite buttery, but some (such as the Super Mom, Wanderer, and Best Friend) were slightly powdery. It is easy to blend in, but sometimes the colors do not blend well so take note of your skin’s texture if you are considering on purchasing this. Overall, the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette is a nice palette, but its effects are not as overwhelming.
