Ingredients

Product & Colour: 
This palette contains 6 0.04 oz Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow 2 being matte and 4 with a shimmer/metallic finish shades that are richly pigmented with Poolside being slightly sheer. They all blend beautifully together when working with these.

Eyeshadow in:
Hammock is a rick deep drown that leans slightly warm with a matte finish. The one does stick to the skin but blends out nice.

Bikini is a duo chrome pale butter yellow with bright pink pearlescent. The shade is a lot more interesting in person and on the lid than in photos. I don't think I've seen anything like this.

Barefoot is a high shimmer pale beige nude with Gold shimmer.

Parasol is a pale bone beige with a shimmer finish.

Sun Deck is a nice almost cool tone light brown with a matte finish. Very smooth in texture and application.

Poolside is a high shimmer pale blue with white/gold sparkle. Although sheer this applied smoothly and consistently. This colour will intensive over a primer.




0.23 oz Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Captivating is a Satin/Matte finish to it almost buttery in texture but is pigment enough to use both as a blush and eyeshadow. The shade a peach tone leaning a little more orange but still in the pink family.


0.14 oz Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne is supper nice! It has a warm gold highlighter and sheers out smoothly on the skin to add a nice shimmer/glow.

0.13 oz Amazonian Clay Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess looks matte in the pan but have this dewy finish to the texture when applied. the shade doesn't lean too warm which means you could use it to contour as well.


Wear: I got about 8-10 hours wear on their own for all the product in this one before notice any fading or creasing. I can't really talk to the waterproof/swim proof nature of this but it was sweat proof for sure. ;)


Packaging: The compact feels both sturdy but also a touch heavy as it seems to me the whole thing is a solid mould for both the lid and the tray. The mirror looks to be a deep one as well that produces a true image.



Note on the swatches: My skin was suffering from hives due to testing out sun screen on my arms (been a week to!) so please ignore the odd texture it's not he products doing this.

Daylight swatches: Champagne and Park Ave Princess (heavy & buffed out)
Flash swatches: Champagne and Park Ave Princess (heavy & buffed out)
Daylight swatches: (heavy & buffed out)
Flash swatches: (heavy & buffed out)
Daylight swatches: Hammock, Bikini, Barefoot, Parasol, Sun Deck, & Poolside
Flash swatches: Hammock, Bikini, Barefoot, Parasol, Sun Deck, & Poolside
Verdict: 
This is such a nice travel palette and daily look palette! The only drawback is that on me Captivating leans too orange on my olive fair skin tone when buffed out.

I hope Tarte make more of these style palettes in the future because this is what a palette should be like if you're going for a full face design.
