The other day I had to stop into Sephora to return a few things. I went in there with faith in myself that I would return the items and not buy anything. Unfortunately I have no will power when it comes to that place and I had 45 minutes to kill before I had to be somewhere. So I walked around smelled 100 perfumes, put some different sunscreens on my hand, dipped my fingers into cream pots, and was feeling really proud of myself because I was about 15 minutes in and I had nothing in my hands to buy! Then I saw this beauty. Originally I had no desire to buy this palette, I have so many palettes as is and I really didn’t think I would wear the colors. Just out of curiosity I swatched a few colors on my hand and was blown away! There was another girl looking at it as well and the makeup savage in me came out and I snatched the last one before she could.
First of all the packaging is beautiful, even my boyfriend commented on how pretty the outside is. And of course it matches the oh so pretty Tarte unicorn brushes.
This palette comes with 11 colors, the back says eye and cheek palette so I’m assuming the bigger color in the middle is a highlighter. All the colors are intense shimmer with one matte.
The swatches were done with one swipe and no primer. I’ve worn a few shades already and with my eyes primed these stayed all day and night with no creasing. I know some people don’t like palettes that you can’t create a full look with due to lack of mattes and transition colors, but to me I have loads of palettes I can pull out to create a full look with this. I love that this has a few brighter colors which are perfect for spring and summer.
You can purchase this palette from Sephora or Tarte and its $40. To me its not a bad price considering how pigmented the colors are and how beautiful the packaging is. I keep this beauty out on my vanity so I can enjoy it. This is limited edition so if you’ve had your eyes on it I wouldn’t hesitate much longer.
Thanks for reading. Leave me a comment and let me know if you have this palette or anything else from the Make Believe In Yourself line and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!
